oh yes she did it

NEW YORK — A New York attorney on Thursday said the life of a murdered transgender woman wasn’t worth the same punishment as if his client had killed someone “in the higher end of the community.”
Piece of scum attorney.My blood is fucking boiling.
The attorney and whomever that scum is defending are the worthless ones
All right, listen up, Tumblr. This is one of the few times I’ll actually give a social commentary, so here we go. When you’re a lawyer, your job is to fight for your client. No questions asked. You make whatever argument you can. You verbally rip apart people on the stand when they side against you. You say whatever you need to. Do I think this murderer is a piece of scum? Yes. Do I think his lawyer is probably a piece of scum too? Yes. But this has to be said. When you’re a lawyer, sometimes you’re forced to do dirty work. Because at the end of the day, if people stop fighting for the guilty ones, sooner or later, there’s no one to fight for the innocent ones either. You got a problem with that? Don’t be a lawyer. Problem solved. Does what this lawyer said suck? Yes. But it wasn’t your friend or family member that got murdered and it’s not years of your freedom on the line, so kindly fuck off. This lawyer’s job is probably hard enough as it is.
"But it wasn’t your friend or family member that got murdered and it’s not years of your freedom on the line, so kindly fuck off."
What a beautiful sentiment.
Yes, hello, future lawyer here.
You, shitstain defender, are an idiot. Do Criminal Defense lawyers have to defend scum to the best of their abilities? Yes. Innocent until proven guilty. BUT HIS COMMENT HAS NO PLACE IN A COURT OF JUSTICE. Period. He said this to a fucking judge. In a fucking courtroom. He used this as an actual argument for a reduced sentence. No criminal defense lawyer with half a brain would try to argue that the sentence should be lower because the victim’s life wasn’t worth justice. No judge should stand for it. Luckily, this one didn’t either:
"This court believes every human life in sacred […] It’s not easy living as a transgender, and I commend the family for supporting her."
Oh and PS. Don’t give me that bullshit of “oh his job is hard enough leave him alone poor precious bebbeh” NO. He chose his profession. He knew what he was getting into. It is his responsibility to serve justice and the integrity of the court first.
In fact, section 4.4(a) of the New York Bar Association’s Rules of Professional Conduct explicitly say that lawyers shall not argue for their client in ways that “have no substantial purpose other than to embarrass or harm a third person,” so go read a book or something.
"Hey you shouldn’t yell at lawyers, they have hard jobs! They should be entitled to say whatever they want without any consequences because… guilty people are hard to defend… or something. I mean, of course I think it was horrible but instead of talking about how deplorable these actions were I’m going to not only accept but encourage such disgusting practices because hey our system’s already problematic so I might as well, right? Also you didn’t even know the murder victim so you have no right to be upset, in fact, because none of us were personally involved in this case we just shouldn’t care. It’s not like it contributes to a larger problem. Or that we should actually care about upholding a murdered woman’s integrity. Trust me, I’m a lawyer.”
What a cum stain.
Bored @ the mechanic. Again. But this time I get to do half a semester’s worth of math homework. Save meeeeeeee
Nelson Mandela was once called a terrorist for fighting oppression by both the US and UK. Don’t forget that as these fuckers Obama and Cameron get in front of cameras and pretend to respect him while going against everything he stood for. Don’t forget that Mandela stood in solidarity with Arafat and Castro and every other 3rd world leader that was ostracized and made to look crazy for the needs of western imperialism.
I took a shit in my grandma’s cat’s litterbox when I was like 13 and my whole family was wilding out trying to figure out why the cat took such a huge dump. Then they took her to the vet and we found out she has feline HIV so in a way, I helped her.
this story was wild from start to finish
