The best of intentions

Well, something I learned, painfully I may add, a long time ago is that despite the best of intentions some ideas and things are best left alone.

This is probably a good example.

Uncertainty for Hill Country DA unit -
By Zeke MacCormack - Express-News

The controversial two-man police unit that 198th District Attorney Amos Barton created to detect smugglers among Hill Country motorists appears likely be abolished in 2013.

The two announced candidates vying to succeed Barton, who isn't seeking a second term, both say they plan to eliminate the squad, which critics say infringes on motorists' rights and creates a conflict of interest for prosecutors.

Barton, who was not available for comment, has previously dismissed the conflict of interest concerns.
