One of the (many) reasons I ruled out policing as a career option is that there is no way I could work to enforce laws I don’t believe in. Innocent until proven guilty, and all that, but if this story is true, then the stink of hypocrisy would be quite overpowering. A Deputy District Attorney in Las Vegas has been arrested for cocaine possession. Why the hypocrisy? Because the dude leads a drugs task force. Most of the news coverage of this story focuses on the fact that he was the lead prosecutor for one of Paris Hilton’s recent debacles.  She entered a plea bargain. I’m curious to know how many non-millionaires weren’t so lucky under his watch.
