** Clyde brings this up at more than one point in the movie; [[spoiler: it finally sticks near the end]]. The fact that he didn't care or even ''tried'' is what ultimately motivates Clyde. The point of it all was to make Nick care about more than just his own career.

!!FridgeLogic
* Nick insists that the system works, even though he literally let a violent criminal go, just so he could keep a track record going. Did he buy his way through law school or something? Compounding this is that letting a child murderer plea out would destroy any career he might have had as a DA.
** Nick is an idiotic slimeball. Bribing his way through law school would not be out of character for him.

* A Main/BlinkAndYoullMissIt - When Clyde is talking to Nick outside the prison, he says "This is Von Clausewitz shit-- total fucking war". This is in reference to Von Clausewitz's "Third Reciprocal Action", which basically says that to defeat an enemy you must completely annihilate them. That is why he wants to kill everyone in the Justice Department, and explains his targeting of the city hall meeting at the end.
