Week of Republican Hatchet Jobs Continues
Word is that the purges have begun over at the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.
Some of the lawyers fired so far are very good trial lawyers of high character. They’re the greatest loss to the State, and will, if they can be successfully reeducated, likely make excellent criminal-defense lawyers. (Welcome to HCCLA!)
Eliminating political opponents upon accession to power is the correct move in the game of tyranny, but I have to wonder what the reactions of those who are not fired will be to the new DA’s firing of fine prosecutors for reasons unrelated to their performance as prosecutors.
If being talented, hardworking, and dedicated doesn’t guarantee one job security, why bother being talented, hardworking, and dedicated?
