An older prosecutor was sitting on a park bench, reading about a scandal involving his office, when an older defense attorney walked by.
"That story makes your office look bad," the defense attorney tells the prosecutor. The prosecutor nods, grimly.
"I've been warning people about that guy for years," the attorney continues. "I knew he would be an embarrassment."
The prosecutor says nothing, having no argument.
"It wasn't just him, either," the defense attorney says. "It was an Office-wide problem."
"Your office should have acknowledged its mistakes sooner," he goes on. "You are all over-zealous. You don't care about the truth. You have this culture of arrogance. You all look moronic with your 'war on drugs'. You are a bunch of liars and jack-booted thugs. You are unreasonable and unflexible, and I hope that a new D.A. fires you all."
"Well," the prosecutor said, "you know, you aren't all that pleasant to deal with sometimes, either."
The defense attorney frowns and shakes his head.
"See," he said. "It's that type of 'us versus them' attitude that creates this whole problem."
