The difficult job of being a law enforcement officer has become even more challenging in today’s emotional political climate.

Peace officers have an inherent respect for other professionals who endure intense political pressure while simultaneously striving to maintain their professionalism, make tough choices, and do the right thing, even when it’s hard.

Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine is one of those professionals, and thus he has our respect.

The citizens of Douglas County are incredibly fortunate to have such a fair-minded, seasoned prosecutor at the helm.

One need only look around the nation to find staggering examples of County Attorney and District Attorney offices who have been hijacked by activist politicians.

Keep up the good work Don.
