SLC DA Mary Rain says people are quitting her employ because her office is chronically understaffed. Have you ever heard someone in law enforcement and corrections say otherwise ?
Crime? Not enough cops, prosecutors, prisons. When someone is acquitted, not enough people on the other side. When someone escapes, not enough guards.
Mary Rain made her pitch for money this week to the Legislature that dropped a dime on her.
Given the pay and benefits for the job, you have to figure there's a line of local lawyers anxious to run next year, but you can never count out an incumbent and Ms. Rain will likely fight hard to hang on.
