Most Politicians have exactly one goal, that is to get re-elected. Period.

Police Chiefs have exactly one goal, to suck up to the politician (or committee) that appoints them so they keep their job.

District attorneys are more complex. Their first goal is to be re-elected - it has been shown over and over that some of them do "anything", including with holding evidence in capital cases, to achieve that (which is murder for gain IMO). Their overarching goal is to be elected to higher office.

Notice that justice doesn't figure any place in the goals mentioned above.
