Prosecutors: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)        6 August 2018

 

John Oliver explains how prosecutors use,

or in some cases misuse,

their power within our criminal justice system

and why it’s important to know

whether or not your district attorney is a dog.

NYC > Queens County District Attorney's Office

 

The Major Crimes, Investigations, Trials,

Special Prosecutions

and Legal Affairs divisions of the office

are responsible

not only for the prosecution

of arrest cases brought to the office

by the New York City Police Department

and other law enforcement agencies,

but also for proactively seeking out wrongdoers

and aggressively undertaking investigations

of suspected criminal conduct.

 

Each of the five major divisions in the office

is composed of several bureaus,

many of which have specialized missions.

 

For example,

the Major Crimes Division

includes the Special Victims Bureau,

which is charged with prosecuting,

among other cases,

all child abuse

and elder abuse matters.

 

The Investigations Division

has bureaus whose mission it is

to root out organized crime,

public corruption

and so-called "white collar crime".

 

And the Trial Division

has bureaus dedicated to the prosecution

of career criminals, narcotics violations

and gang related crime.

Robert Morris Morgenthau        1919-2019

 

(...) courtly Knickerbocker patrician

who waged war on crime

for more than four decades

as the chief federal prosecutor

for Southern New York State

and as Manhattan’s

longest-serving district attorney

 

In an era

of notorious Wall Street chicanery

and often dangerous streets,

Mr. Morgenthau

was the bane of mobsters,

crooked politicians

and corporate greed;

a public avenger

to killers,

rapists and drug dealers;

and a confidant

of mayors and governors,

who came and went

while he stayed on

— for nearly nine years

in the 1960s

as the United States attorney

for the Southern District of New York

and for 35 more

as Gotham’s aristocratic

Mr. District Attorney.
