Watching the Prosecutors

Just as not all criminal defense attorneys are saints (much as it pains me to say it), not all all prosecutors are sinners (much as it pains me even more to say that). Nonetheless, there are bad apples on both sides. The bluntly titled Bad Prosecutors blog aims to keep tabs on those that wield the power of the state in the courtroom. As it's run by a pair of ex-Assistant United States Attorneys, they presumably have some insight into this sort of thing. And already, they've named their 10 worst prosecutors for the year, including such heavyweights as Mike Nifong, "Fredo" Gonzalez (although, as S. COTUS points out, Fredo never really actually prosecuted anybody in his life), and David McDade (prosecutor in the Genarlow Wilson saga).
