The Roy Revenge Saga pt. 2!

Okay, we're still talking about "Roy Revenge," from All-Flash Quarterly #2.  It's important to know this because it makes the following Fun with Out of Context Dialogue (tm!) worth it:

Get it?

See, his kid calls himself "Roy Revenge" so if he watches "his revenge" come to a quick climax it's...

Well, if you don't get it, that's all the explaining I'm doing.

Meanwhile, no one seems to understand why anyone could possibly have it in for former District Attorney Jim Kelley:

Yeah, what kind of enemies could you have when you prosecute people for a living?  It's hard to image anyone having an ax to grind...

Even Jim Kelley himself can't figure it out: 

I can only assume at this point that he was the most ineffective District Attorney in the history of modern jurisprudence.  If no one has any beef with you and you were trying to put people in prison or have them strapped to a gurney and pumped full of poison, you had to be completely harmless.  Kind of like these baby numbats:

See?  Now picture them in a bad suit trying to prosecute you.  If they failed, would you hold a grudge?  Of course you wouldn't.

Hey!  It's time for some bonus Fun with Out of Context Dialogue! (tm!):

See you tomorrow!

Considering the number of years that the Bad Guy has been working on his revenge, I would assume that the poor DA has probably died or got Alzheimers by now anyway.

Exactly, well sorta my thoughts. The guy has been District Attorney for at least 10 years, is that normal? I have no idea. Also The Flash is still thinkin about this stuff 10 years later? What has happened in the mean time? Anything?

There are no term limits for DA's, Marv. They're elected officials, but they can hold the job as long as the public votes 'em in. The Public Defender, however, is an appointed position so that person doesn't ever have to seek re-election.
