Abuse in getting criminal warrants

The Roanoke paper has this article ("Warrant system can be abused," 5/30/04) about how the system of getting criminal warrants is abused by people to suit their personal motives. Of course, as many stories like this that I've heard, I've heard as many about magistrates who would not issue warrants, for one strange reason or another.

Certainly, the magistrate system has been improved in my time, but there is still some room to make the system more objective and uniform.
