You "used to be a prosecutor" huh? Before, what... you got fired for being an idiot?<quoted text>I used to be a prosecutor and I can attest to the fact that small town cops are USUALLY unqualified and incompetent. Sadly, most of them can't write a coherent, literate sentence. Worse, a lot of them are in law enforcement for all the wrong reasons -- to seek thrills, hit on women they pull over, push around people they don't like. The small agencies simply don't pay enough to attract high quality individuals. The smart candidates get on with better agencies. The losers take what they can get. Most of these unprofessional little departments are led by marshals or "chiefs" who have nothing more than a high school diploma or GED and they came from the same collection of boneheads as their rank and file. It's a real problem.
I hope you didn't make vague, unsubstantiated blanket remarks like this in your closing arguments.
It's clear to me why you're no longer practicing. What is not clear to me... how you passed the Bar exam in the first place, if you did.
I bet you are just like My Cousin Vinny.
