In the US, there should be rule that people involved in thins like this should be forbidden to run for any public office for a decade.

As they also remove the right to vote from inmates, this would be only fair (IMO).

That way, people who work they career-ladder by creating a record on being "tough on crime" would think twice before going over the top.
