Dear David,

 The simple truth is that citizens have no rights when it comes to police investigations or judge’s decisions. There is no accountability process. The law states, at least in the United States , that the arrest and conviction of criminals is in the “interest of the state.” This means that only political folks in power can decide what is worth it for the state to pursue; this would be the prosecutor. If he doesn’t think it matters, he can toss the case. The citizens, although they make up the “state,” only have recourse in public protest or in elections. Other than that, the police and the prosecutor are free to do with any case what they wish to do, include cover it up.
