The first is that if it's August, then the REGB is populated by well dressed, fresh-faced, eager new lawyers from the SAO and the PDs wandering around, wide-eyed, ready to make their mark in the criminal justice system. We welcome them and will have more to say shortly on these pages that your supervisors have explicitly told you that you are now allowed to read at work (while they do it).
OIL AND WATER DO NOT MIX
Neither do criminal defense attorneys and police officers, especially in the morning whilst scrambling for parking. Then the powers that be separated the two factions under the "separate but equal parking doctrine" that has yet to be overruled by Brown v Board of Parking.
But there are cracks in the plan, and police cruisers have been spotted in the segregated section of the parking lot. We're getting a flood of emails and pictures. Attorneys are up in arms, which is never a good thing, although most of them do not practice civil law, so the lid is still on the volcano, but not for long.
Heed our warning. This will not end well.
