    Unfortunately, Ms. Green , your Chief Deputy District Attorney Mark Pafford has already destroyed any credibility that your office might have in this matter:

    Similarly, Kern County Chief Deputy District Attorney Mark Pafford told The Californian earlier this month it trusted the sheriff's investigation of the Silva incident. "We have full faith in the sheriff's department that they will do an accurate and complete investigation," Pafford said. "In the past they've done such investigations and submitted cases to us. Some we've filed on and some we've declined."

    This case must be completely removed from the deeply ingrained cronyism of Kern County government.


    KERO (5/24/2013): Next in Silva case: Kern County District Attorney reviews case

    Kern County District Attorney Lisa Green said her office will do an independent review of the Sheriff's Office case. "I felt that an independent review was important," said Green. "I am the Chief Law Enforcement in Kern County and I think the citizens of this county look to me to do justice."

    ...

    The Coroner's Office is under the Sheriff's authority and some have asked if that could have impacted the autopsy results. "It's called confirmation bias," said Criminal Defense Attorney Kyle Humphrey. "It's a term that means people who work in a particular field have tunnel vision for that field."

    ...

    "Hopefully they have faith in the integrity of this office," said Green. "We are not a rubber stamp of any police department or sheriff department in Kern County and we will do our best to provide a truthful and accurate answer."

    [See above, Ms. Green. Your Chief Deputy District Attorney Mark Pafford already let the cat out of the bag.]
