UNC_Samurai: sprawl15: UNC_Samurai: I'm sorry, but when the people that commit grossly heinous crimes like, sending a country to war based on lies and nearly destroying the global economy to make an extra buck, don't even get charged with anything?  How the hell does your plan to address legal inequality even touch that, smartass?

well we just stop charging poor people with the same crimes

a receding tide lowers all boats

We're just going to have to crowdsource our anarchy?


kickstart it

DamnYankees: Nabb1: This seems like a genuinely terrible idea.

The only aspect of it I might be convinced about is civil litigation.

The criminal part is absurd. You don't make justice equal by depriving people of legal counsel. That's dumb as hell. The goal should be the provision of good legal counsel to everyone, and if you have the money to spend more, go for it.

Civil litigation I can *maybe* see an argument for having rules which govern expense of counsel. But I don't know what that would be, and not being a litigator I don't have strong feelings. I also feel like they'd be quite easily circumvented.


Yeah...this seems like a No Defendant Left Behind kind of notion.

"Our lawyers work for minimum wage, your honor. They also have part-time jobs at the company as "not a lawyer" making 6-figure salaries."

Really, we're going for William Kennedy Smith as the hood ornament on this sh*tmobile?
