If it’s true, to paraphrase the writer Linda Blandford, that justice is a concept but muscle is the reality, then the sad saga of Richard Lapointe is a textbook case. For it was Lapointe who ran up against the steely spine of a Connecticut law enforcement establishment that not only wronged him, but to this day has refused to admit its error in the face of a mountain of evidence.
