LAW

I know of many lawyers who are very quick to quote the words of famous jurists in decisions that they wrote. They are those who live their lives by rules of precedent maybe that’s why the future goes the way the past has went... Ignorance of the law can’t be used as a defense but those with knowledge of it can assault all common sense. Some utilize the system to free truly evil men then revel in celebrity that generates from them. The truth is a collection of all facts and evidence the lawyer is a filter and justice a coincidence. The law has loopholes through which some men can escape as it catches others by the neck untill it snaps and breaks.

I have seen both good and bad lawyers, John. Hmm... no topic for Justice? There ought to be!

Heidi, thank you for you input. I agree, but I meant to focus on bad law and lawyers. Example: the tabacco industry denied any wrong doing in the carcenogenic properties of tobacco...those who defended them are unconscioncable.
