No, Pat wasn't right about everything, but he was right about that stuff. In an adversarial system like the US has it's totally the DA's job to build the case for the state. They're not there "to find the truth for the benefit of the public", that's what the judge and jury are there for. The DA is totally the big boss prosecutor. Totally.
