If the justice system is even close to legitimate, he no longer has a job and she's about to come into a lot of money.

But if experience tells me anything, this will be swept under the rug and the cop will get a one-week suspension and a transfer.

I like Balko's suggestions for curtailing prosecutorial misconduct:

  • Make district attorney a civil service position, not an elected office. That would lessen the incentive for prosecutors exploit convictions to grandstand before voters.
  • Eliminate absolute immunity for prosecutors. Prosecutors should fear a trip to the cleaners if they lie and cheat to win convictions.

Plenty of us are in underpaid civil service positions. Only the bosses are elected.
