In their own way, things seem to work out
With our executive caught-up in a swirl of spineless political correctness, and with our legislature held hostage by unrealistic ideologues, the noises coming from the judiciary are very encouraging. In most cases, the judiciary seems to be the last refuge of our democracy; as amply demonstrated in the recent censorship debate.
This is one more step forward, especially as introducing plea bargaining helps make itself more efficient. The courts should ideally then have more time to discuss more pressing issues.

Is this a good thing? Wonder how much of these bargains would be as a result of the persuasive police officers

Wicked: That is certainly a cause for concern, but the understanding is that this is just the beginning of judicial reform. For one, anything that helps decongest the system will, in the long term, help the judiciary run effectively. This means that it makes challenging and redressal within the systems all the more effective.
