    Prosecutors have broad immunity regarding their decisions to prosecute or not prosecute. Unless Wolfinger took a bribe to not prosecute Zimmerman there will not be any State Bar action against him. He can certainly be voted out of office. The office of regional state attorney is elected.

      how often does a prosecutor decide to stop an investigation of a homicide in the middle of the night before the investigation get off the ground? How can he say there isn't enough evidence while preventing any attempt to find evidence?

      There are still many unknowns. We don't even know it was Wolfinger who made the decision or someone in his office.

      We do know that someone decided not to investigate a homicide and allowed the admitted killer to walk.

      Others have simply gotten old. I prefer to think I've been tempered by time.

      Is it on the "state wide" ballot?  If so can you kos mail me when he is up for re-election?  I've not followed state politics here as well as I did in Michigan.  Although I do follow the governor's race.  I also take my cues for the "school board" nominees from my neighbors who are both democrats and teachers.
