Wisconsin Prosecutor Goes for the Glory in Hunter Slay Case

Wisconsin Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager hasn't appeared in court to prosecute a case since she was elected in 2002. But she's decided to personally prosecute Chai Vang, accused of murdering six deer hunters. She says she decided to take the case herself because of her "personal interest" in crimes against people. Like this is the only case of violent crime in the state of Wisconsin? Why doesn't she just admit she's doing it for the glory and the media attention? This feeble excuse puts her credibility at issue in our book.

Mr. Vang pleaded not guilty today and waived his preliminary hearing, which is not uncommon. Trial is set for September 12.
