OT: Invasion

Three and a half grand compensation for refusing to accept a handshake? What the fuck is wrong with the world? It's high time we refused to accept any religious reasons for doing or not doing anything.

Sounds like a good little earner for the lawyers. I have often said if there is reincarnation I'd come back as a lawyer! Brian

All lawyers should be thrown off the cliffs of Dover, along with the invading religious nuts.

Two of my sons are lawyers. They do not like it when I told them that 90% of the bad lawyers make the good 10% look bad.
In fact it is only a small percentage that give the profession a bad name and I know a lot of lawyers and worked with patent, environmental and business lawyers. They were all fine people. One lawyer did screw me out of a consulting fee and his clients were a drug dealer and a distributor.

I have a dear customer who is a lawyer. He has a strong sense of morality. I very much admire him. He has thrown dishonest people out of his office before, much to his economic detriment. The rest of them, well I guess every profession has its bad apples.
I have been stiffed by lawyers before. Then again, I have been stiffed by a church too.
I think one of the moral issues facing lawyers is that they can fall into the trap of substituting winning and losing for right and wrong

In fact they are legally required to defend those in court that they know are guilty of the offence they are charged with.
That’s utterly obscene that anyone would actually do that, particularly with the most serious offences.

I had met a couple of lawyers that worked as public defenders and asked how they can defend some known to be guilty people. They said they defend them but do their best to see that justice is served.

I sat on a jury once where the DA was railroading a guy. The PD made mince meat out of him. The PD even used the PA's investigator against him. The DA was disgusting.
Occasionally, PD's get to protect the innocent.

In civil law, when some one comes into your office and lies to you, you can kick their asses out.
In criminal law, you are only required to defend them if a judge assigns them to you. Otherwise you can decline the case.

Well if someone brought their donkey to my office, I'd certainly kick them out.

You need to be very careful with the argument that, the chance of it being accidental is small therefore they are murderers. We had that here in this country, and people were convicted because some professor who couldn't do sums persuaded a judge and jury (who also couldn't do sums), of her guilt.

That’s why lawyers need to be involved, on that question.
We had that

In this case it wasn’t just that statistic that saw her convicted, there was also the damning evidence in here diaries and what her husband saw of her behaviour just before she killed each one. It was in fact him that got the cops to look at the evidence after the fourth one had been killed.
Prior to that, the system had decided that they had not been deliberately murdered.

The problem is not necessarily the lawyers themselves, but the system. The whole idea of having someone defend someone that they know is guilty is just insane.

The large majority of legal disputes never make it to court but are negotiated by lawyers out of court.

Everyone deserves to be defended in court.
