Ok, this is just annoying. Do you really think that prosecutors
don't have real jobs? Next you'll be saying that PDs aren't real
lawyers. Maybe the entire criminal justice system is run by monkeys
dressed up as people. God help you if you're ever a victim of crime.
Clearly it's a great idea to put Ms. Leon, who was a public defender
by the way, in charge. Because she's got all that experience asking
juries to find people guilty. And asking judges to send burglars,
rapists, murderers to prison. And filing criminal charges or getting
grand jury indictments. And helping victims find justice. And
managing over 100 attorneys. And working with police agencies to
keep Orlando safe. Oh wait, no she doesn't. But she can manage a
small law firm.
Not only that, but what is with this connection to Doug Guetzloe? He
is AWAITING SENTENCING. Seriously, she wants to be head honcho at
the SAO? Does she not see the conflict? I shudder to think...
