Prosecutors don't worry about dangers of their jobs


The search continues for whoever murdered two Texas prosecutors.

Dougherty District Attorney Greg Edwards says, despite the inherent danger of the job, most prosecutors don't fear for their lives.

Kaufman County, Texas district attorney Mike McLelland and his wife were found dead in their home Saturday night. There is speculation a white supremacist group out for retribution is behind the murder.

Edwards says he does his job in a professional manner, and those being prosecuted shouldn't take it personally. "I think that is an important aspect of it and at that realization there can be a determination that there will be nothing gained by bringing any harm to me as an individual or my staff," Edwards said.

Just two months ago, the assistant district attorney for Kaufman County was also shot dead.
