These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Strawman Has a Point : The Chief D.A. tries to stop Murphy from prosecuting the spectators by pointing out that Murphy feels guilty ("I owe her") about failing to put the actual rapists away for long. Ditto: "You don't get to use this office to pay your debts!". He also doesn't want to waste taxpayer's money on a "sure loser". All of which seem like good reasons. When he threatens to fire her for, well, ignoring her boss, she threatens to sue the D.A. 's office, making her look even more like a "vengeful bitch" (quoting the film here) on a personal vendetta.
