Holding "the taxpayers" accountable for individual mistakes and/or deliberate malfeasance is completely pointless, if not deliberately malevolent. "The Taxpayer" has absolutely no control over the individuals involved, in most cases by design. Bring criminal charges vs individuals, only.

The Innocence people here in Chitcago out of NW University have been caught, repeatedly, committing bribery, witness tampering and other fuckery. Everyone "advocating" for the guilty has an angle, the defense attorneys at least are honest and open about theirs, to their credit.

Yes, I know Chicago is basically the perfect example of every type and level of corruption and scheme to fleece the taxpayer. All that said, I don't see the utility of the DP as currently used. It should be to eliminate repeat offenders, for all level of felonious crimes, to include (especially) financial crimes, fraud etc. Getting rid of career criminals would reduce the crime level to a meaningless fraction of the current level.

And that would take away the power from a lot of people, which is why it won't happen. S/F....Ken M
