She’d been told she was serving the wrong side,
protecting the guilty,
rather than punishing them.
She saw it as sometimes protecting the innocent—
the very least among them—
doing for them what they could not do for themselves.
She was the voice for those
who had already been convicted by the media,
for those in jail,
whose guilt had not been proven.
Her faith kept her sane,
for she knew the truly guilty never really got away.
