The problem, I find, is even getting the ability to challenge them [government] about their doings.
For example, I have found a state statue that is in violation of the State’s Constitution, in multiple ways*, and cannot find a reliable way to get “standing” that does not involve violating the statute and fighting from a position of weakness. (i.e. Intentionally being charged for the act indicates that you believe the act to have *some* validity/authority.)
So the problem is even bigger than simply not implicating themselves; which (as a collection of individuals I would grant as legitimate via the 5th) but that they invalidate/prohibit investigation, the entry of evidence, and even (I suppose) indictment. What we have is a system that says: due process is whatever we deign it to be at this particular moment. If you will, it is that legally speaking they believe not that facts are stubborn things, but that they are entitled to their own facts: and thusly due process, the steps (and execution) being fact, is subverted.
You nailed it, brother.
