No wonder the justice system is so back logged, everyone is on vacation.

So Pamala Harris already endorsed Rosin for re-election, The wolves all stick together.

We have a problem with Government, it's way to big. So big, it can't even control itself.

Jeff Rosen is just another example of what is wrong with our system. He thinks that laws, policies and procedures don't apply to him. I am sure he is not an exceptions on issues like this. It is so prevalent our system. Who is watching these guys? No one. Jeff made a big mistake by asking for such a lenient sentence for Shirakawa and that was so outrageous by emphasizing that George Shirakawa's service to the public. One has to wonder what kind of service Shirakawa has done. he stole tax payers money and helped the corrupt and crooked labor unions steal more tax payers money. The system is so ****ing rotten. Anybody who thinks their local politicians, bureaucrats and state/city employees are honest and ethical, are way beyond stupid. They work less and steal more.

I am not able to control my laughter while reading this article. What a cruel joke it is to ask a corrupt and crooked state AG to investigate a local corrupt AG? Kamala Harris has set new lows when it comes to ethics and common sense. I blame the stupid voters (free loaders) of California.

District Attorney Jeff Rosen gave his supervising attorney's time off in lieu of pay (5% cut) which was in his discretion. Now the Union is attacking him. Rosen was looking out for his supervising attorneys and compensating them for the Union's demands that they take a pay cut. This just shows how much power the unions have and how they are an impediment to good management.

@Konrad: Sorry sir, but he gave his people time WITH pay.

There are enough people in the County, and now the STate, that think this needs to be looked into. I think he got caught with his hand in the cookie jar. Is he the only person in Government with their hand in the jar? No way. But he got caught.

If he's guilty I hope they make a good example of him for others to learn from.

I know it's a longshot. I can dream.

Mr. Rosen and I are adversaries in court, and I think that his whole "reform DA" schtick is total BS. However, with this incident, based upon what has been reported, I stand in support of Mr. Rosen. ALL of the fault in this tempest in a teapot is with the unions. NONE of the fault is with Mr. Rosen.

It is time for the people to contemplate the absurdity of unions for government workers. All of those unions should be eliminated.
