Comment: Lawyers

(See in situ)


I don't know why people despise lawyers. An ex-attorney, the training and aptitude in the courtroom really pay off for Greenwald.

I loved how he quotes CBS back to whatshisname. (Reminded me of Dr. Paul quoting Congressional history back to Congress.) They both either know this stuff, or prep in advance for the totally predictable questions.

When attorneys defend the guilty, they are defending due process and the rights of all of us. That's much more heroic than someone who only defends the innocent or who goes for a conviction at all costs to our rights.

What do you think?
