Prosecutorial Misconduct in the United States Department of Justice

Are you paying attention to the federal prosecutors who appear in your courtrooms?  If you weren't paying attention, please start.  It's obvious that DOJ is unwilling to keep its own house clean.  Where the Department of Justice is concerned, self-policing is a contradiction in terms.
