Has the new Attorney General found a new level of Fiscal Conservative?
According to the letter received Friday 2/27/2015, a statutory requirement for a determination to be made by a prosecutor or investigator is now translated so a records clerk is close enough. Played out, we can do away with the judiciary, prosecutors and detectives in lieu of janitorial staff making decisions in criminal prosecutions. Consider the request for a recording the existence of which came to light on review of civil forfeiture documents.
You have to wonder if they even read the request for ruling and simply rubber stamped the response. If the requestor response was considered, the AG has ruled a statutory requirement for a determination to be made by a prosecutor or investigator combined with a requirement to articulate how the release of information would interfere is completely unnecessary.
Again, if a statutory requirement is irrelevant, we can simply dispense with judges, prosecutors and investigators and simply ask the janitorial staff if a person so accused should go to jail.
