How is it that your rights can be violated with no consequence to the offending politician or government agent?

Jail PoliticiansThere are two reason why a politician might end up in jail.  The overwhelming majority of those who have, committed crimes in their private life; drugs, prostitution, tax evasion , etc. These are criminal acts which any U.S. citizen could be prosecuted for.
