A new low, even for a lawyer

  1. I get the ideal behind lawyers and zealous representation, but how does this cocksucker sleep?

    Any defendant deserves a vigorous defense. But this is just another example of why I'd never want to be the one to provide that, particularly for a guy like this.

    You do not want a lawyer deciding what the facts are.

    That's the job of the jury/judge.

    The heart of our judicial system is that the more scrutiny applied, the better the decision. If its a BS defense, it should be easily rejected.

    That lawyer's argument could be interpreted as a defendant shooting one victim, only wounding him, then shooting killing another. That lawyer would then say that the defendant only knew that a bullet could wound, not kill.

    Foolish arguement. And I wonder why the defense lawyer didn't try to plead it down.

    "And I wonder why the defense lawyer didn't try to plead it down."

    Cuz he's a wily PD who didn't want his scumbag client on the street, so came up with a lame defense.

    Hey, it could happen.

    So the douchebag lawyer is trying to tell us that because the victim wasn't a bleeder or has a glass jaw, his client should get a pass?

    Yep. Seen it on "The Practice" and "Law and Order".
