A Texas prosecutor who brought indictments last week against Vice President Dick Cheney and others pounded his fist and shouted at the judge Friday during a hearing, accusing the judge of giving the defendants special treatment. District Attorney Juan Angel Guerra asked the judge to recuse himself from the case, which alleges that Cheney's personal investment in the Vanguard Group, which invests in private prison companies, gives him culpability in alleged prisoner abuse.
