From my years in Government I have come to the conclusion that all government employees from the lowest to the highest and no matter what service is involved especially law enforcement and political clerks must be held to the same societal standards as the ordinary citizen is. I know there are cases that are given public review, but these are for show as much as for social justice. Many public employees hide behind the so called ‘public service immunity’ but this has to be eliminated so that any such public employee knows from the git-go that honest and open service is a way of life.

The first effort to control public servants was done by Napoleon Bonaparte, who set up a special court, by which any citizen could assert misbehavior on the part of a public servant. It was one of several very modern ideas he created, including major legal reforms, and allowing women to inherit and own lands and properties on their own.

As soon as the Royalists were restored to power they abolished most of these reforms, though they kept the new Code Napoleon legal system.
