As a prosecutor, I want to make myself available from the first minute of a case: from the crime scene. I want to help police officers handle evidence, prepare warrants and develop cases.
We have seen a pattern where prosecutors make scapegoats out of the police, saying that a case fell apart because of the cops. That's just not the way to be a leader.
Instead, a District Attorney has to accept responsibility and serve as a resource, for victims of crime, for police officers working long hard hours to develop a case, and ultimately, to the community.
It's about service. That's what I've done all of my life, and that's what I want to keep doing.
