The prosecutor in the case, Assistant District Attorney Steve Fein, described the plea deal to The Daily Beast as a fair outcome, noting that accessory after the fact is also a felony, though not a violent one that would place Gattani at risk of being deported back to his native India. Fein indicated that his boss, Santa Clara District Attorney Jeff Rosen, seeks to avoid such deportations.
When the prosecutor, Fein, emerged, he sat down with Rastogi. He indicated to her, and later confirmed to The Daily Beast, that his office was concerned about placing Gattani in danger of being deported.
Apparently, anyone who does something that could expose him to deportation is now entitled to escape all justice for his crimes because local authorities just can't bear the thought of anyone ever getting deported. Never mind the beaten wife or the danger the thug's freedom poses for her and her children. And never mind that what happens to the wife-beater after he is held to account for his crimes is none of their business. Apparently, no one, no matter what he does, in the eyes of San Jose authorities, should ever be deported. Beat your wife? Not a problem. This sounds like the sort of eurotrash logic you find in Europe whenever some "refugee" or "asylum seeker" kills a local girl or rapes a ten-year-old boy.
It's a hell of a distortion of justice to see this going on, and it's clearly rooted in political pandering, both to the Silicon Valley crowd and to the vast number of illegal immigrants from Central America who service this setup and seek avoidance of deportation at all costs. It's pretty grotesque to consider it – a society completely free of justice, whose justice system is focused solely on stopping every deportation.
