« Judge to Alleged Drug Trafficker: No More Attorney Changes | Main | Former DOJ Official Haas Joins King & Spalding »

There are PLENTY of more egregious examples of grossly unethical behavior in our society nowadays that are left unpursued - why pick on these little guys?

According to the article, the baseballs were distributed after the judge declared a mistrial, not during the trial. The officer's may have mistakenly thought the proceedings were over and that there wasn't any harm in accepting the balls. Of course, as lawyers we know that nothing is ever completely over. But I can see how star-struck civilians can make this kind of mistake.

Just have these officers return the balls and remind them (and their co-workers) of their obligations under their contract. Apply some common sense, people!!
