    I have been teaching writing and literature to college students for over 30 years. I have over 30,000 hours in the classroom. If one of my students handed me an essay written like this, I would be overjoyed. It is clear, concise, and comprehensive, but it also shows that there are still ethical people in the legal profession (notwithstanding my persistent lawyer jokes).

    I'm going to use this in my classes an an example of good writing. I also want to personally thank you for informing the public about this egregious abuse of power and violation of professional ethics.

    Where are the professional sanctions? Why has there been none? Anyway, I'm going to restrict my lawyer jokes to prosecutors for a while in homage.
