Kari Brandenburg - Great American, Great Public Servant

Kari Brandenburg
, a district attorney in New Mexico, filed murder charges against police who murdered a man who was camping.  That should not be shocking, since it is her job to charge murderers with murder, but as the nation is learning week after week, such accountability is rare against the police state.

Hats off to this district attorney for upholding the law and ensuring the rule of law is not subverted by those charged with enforcing it.  It's never easy being a faithful public servant.  One who serves the public, rather than themselves and their own career ambitions.

Public service ain't no chump game.  Outstanding job Ms. Brandenburg.
