clancifer: tenpoundsofcheese: looks like people didn't actually rtfa

We didn't?  Please proceed.

/this should be fun

Look, if we let innocent people out of jail for crimes they didn't commit, we're just telling the criminals that they can do whatever they want.  THIS IS ALL OBAMA'S FAULT.  HE'S PUTTING US IN CAMPS.

Followed closely by defense attorneys. Then lawyers in general.

People love hating on defense attorneys, but let's look at what that person gets to do: make arguments.

I realize I should just let the jokes slide, but it's really a negative social development that we act like defense attorneys are scum.

These people take someone accused of something and are the only person who gets to advocate on their behalf. Judges are usually former prosecutors. The state has these enormous resources at their disposal. There's this enormous overwhelming system suffocating a defendant, and whats a defense attorney, what role do they have? Making appeals to the judge, making arguments on their behalf, pointing out logic and fairness and common sense.

Only because we have this law-and-order bullshiat presumption that we can divine like medieval kings guilt and innocence do we hate defense attorneys. Because you can never truly know what happened, they're the most important piece of the system that prevents it from being merely a pipeline to prison, which it already is in many places.

yes... i absolutely agree... you should let the jokes slide.

Their job is to get convictions. Once the trial started, should he jeopardize his conviction record just because the guy probably didn't do it? Anyways, he was probably guilty of something, right?

So the man spent 25 years behind bars for a crime he didn't commit. He had free room-and-board, free meals and access to a gym, TV and a library. What's the problem?

FTFA: "I think we saw someone who is still struggling with denial and anger, a man who has spent at least three decades in power who for the first time is having to answer for his actions."

I think the damage he has done over his entire career will be hard to quantify.  So lets go ahead and give him the death penalty.  Make an example of him like he has done so many times in the past.
