Welcome to Indy, where the crooks enforce the law!

Boy, the hits just keep on coming, as it were, for the Marion County prosecutor's office.

With the previous prosecutor having left under a cloud of scandal and suspicion and a deputy prosecutor who amazingly still has a job after playing drunken bumper cars in Broad Ripple, the last thing they needed was another deputy prosecutor busted, this time for "battery, criminal trespass and residential entry charges."

Before new prosecutor Terry Curry can clean up the IMPD, he's going to need to shovel out his own office. I would start by hanging a placard reading “Meos tam suspicione quam crimine iudico carere oportere" over the desk of all the deputy prosecutors.

Just remember: It won't be because they want to keep you down; it'll be because they want to keep everyone else from getting up.

Damn--I posted that otherwise prescient yet pity comment on the wrong post.

I blame Murphy...the dog, not the law.

Well that'll have to wait intil Diana Moon Glampers, the Handicapper General, is appointed. I expect that sometime during Obama's second term if We, the People, don't stop him.

And I can't spell "pithy" either. Hell with it...I'm going back to bed...with a good book that they'll never be able to take away from me.

Populi custodia custodium sed somnet! The People ought to guard the guardians, but they (the people) sleep.

I hope I got it right, it's been a while since I wrangled an ablative absolute. Apologies to Cato & my Latin teachers!

My latin is rusty-

"If me or Tam suspect you of crime, you will have career opportunities"
