Of course prosecutors who manufacture evidence should be susceptible to lawsuits. If they're just plain wrong, fine, let them be protected by their office. But if they conspire to cheat, they have stepped beyond (below) their office and should be liable. Of course, I am not a lawyer, I am arguing over moral responsibility. I just think it ought to be legal responsibility, too.
