sometimes lawyers are against justice

25 07 2006

There’s lots of jokes and put-downs about lawyers, but this is something serious that you might not have thought about before :

Next time you feel like relying on the legal system, just remember that half the lawyers in this country are paid to see that justice doesn’t prevail. ~ Larry Wall

I realize both sides need to be represented, but it seems unfair that a lawyer might be trying to “prove” the innocence of a guilty person.  The facts need to be presented and decided upon, but that shouldn’t come down to who has the best lawyer.  Our legal system should consider the facts and then decide if the person is guilty or not.  But you can have a lawyer who is trying to throw the facts out the window so they cannot be used against his client.  How is that good for the system?
