Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins discovered last Friday that thieves had stolen his rare Mercedes from his home garage. It was a piece of cake. Mr. Watkins left the keys in the car and the garage door open. Making it easy to steal does not diminish the crook’s guilt, but come on! If anyone should know better, it’s the county’s chief prosecutor. And he has been complaining about budget constraints. Question: Will his office have a conflict of interest in prosecuting the thieves, assuming they are caught? Or will it be necessary to hire an expensive special prosecutor?
It is reported that Craig’s wife counseled him against leaving the garage door open. To no avail, it seems.
Wonder if the thieves knew who he was.
