Great Jobs: CSI's Detective Brass

In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: the police who investigate crime and the district attorneys who prosecute the offenders.

Except apparently in Las Vegas, Nevada, where the people are represented by the crime lab scientists who investigate the crime and, well, we're not sure what happens after that. Every Thursday night, LVPD Detective Jim Brass (played by Paul Guilfoyle) kicks back in the easiest job on television. Police tape, morbid quips about corpses, and cuffing the guilty are all in a days work for Detective Brass. All the while, the CSI team is collecting and analysing evidence, interrogating witnesses, arresting suspects at gunpoint, and extracting confessions. They never advertise jobs like that of Detective Brass here at school...
