In Defence of the Guilty

Legal Underground writes about the mind games required to be a criminal defence attorney and to be able to know that you are doing the right thing. An anonymous commenter says, "You know, the only thing that criminal defense lawyers really do is make sure that everybody involved in the prosecution did their job properly." An age old dilemma and one often dismissed by those who do not see the process as the main event that it is. Chris in the Morning, from Northern Exposure's KBHR, wisely commented, "It's not the thing you fling, it's the fling itself."
