1. "Yes, I give the Devil benefit of law for my own safety's sake."
2. "And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned round on you...where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws from coast to coast...Man's laws, not God's, and if you cut them down...and you're just the man to do it...do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then?"
Stated in my own words, there are two points:
1. No matter how bad the crime, no matter how evil the criminal (Dorner, Boston Bombers), every person should be entitled to defend himself against his accusers...generally in a court of law, although I'm open to other arbitration and judicial methods.
2. If we side step the laws to which we all agreed to (this is not the current case, as most people don't or didn't agree to the laws that govern us) follow, then how are we to protect ourselves if we ever become the accused.
