I spend significant time with attorneys and a variety of tragedies.

We laugh at things that other people would be shocked at.

It's called gallows humor and you either develop it ~ or find another line of work.

Know any doctors or nurses? They do the same thing.

I guess you hate them too.

Whatev.

Very true. Nurses and doctors most certainly do this. You might also want to think before you eat with them while talking shop.

Winning often meant conflicted feelings. There were times he had to "attack" victims, which he hated, but no matter how scummy your client lawyers have a moral obligation to do their job well. He got paid regardless of how successful he was so it wasn't about money. His deal was that a defense attorney must make sure the innocent don't get convicted of a crime they didn't commit even if that means sometimes you end up helping the guilty get away with crime.

This is one of those instances where I think people come to erroneous conclusions about Hillary. Someone has to be the defense attorney.
Why do you hate females who have been raped ? Aren't they the real innocent party ?

What in the world does that have to do with her post?

The constitution says that every accused will be provided a defense. Do you want to just . . do away with that?

I am a lawyer, while often you get cases you don't want, this one was done as a favor. Further, when you get a case like this, working in some sort of appointed counsel, your job is to make sure the rules are being followed, and to defend the client. What Hillary did was despicable. Sorry, I've done appointed counsel work for felonies, getting minors to admit they liked being molested isn't part of it. Neither are loosely phrased insinuations that she cried wolf in the past.

She was part of a scheme to make the jury view the boy in a more favorable light by requesting a female represent him.

It isn't unethical, but there is a character flaw in a person like this, and I know lawyers like this, unfortunately.

I read it, it raises more questions then it answers. Clinton says it was a favor, misremembers the case yet interviews about it in detail, prosecutor (equally culpable of misremembering) has a different story. Politifact frames a story about the Prosecutors words, inserts its own ideas and raises the possibility that she was under pressure to do it.

It doesn't address my post in the slightest, my post is about her conduct. Even if there was pressure, it was still part of a scheme for empathy, and her conduct reveals character flaws. I know lots of people like Hillary in this profession, I wouldn't want any of them in a position of power, unfortunately she's being forced on me.

Try again.

I disagree. YOU try again.

The article is from Politi-fact. They draw their own conclusions.

You, of course, are free to draw your conclusions as a anti-Hillary poster.

Anti-Hillary? I don't want the woman and I'm not going to brush off her vast flaws and fall in line sorry. I'll vote for her if i have to, but my state isn't a swing state so I see no point right now.

Is politi-fact some reputable authority now? How does it stack against the other versions of the same story from different political sites? You find one strenuous logical stretch and run with it.

Way to ignore the post btw.

Secretary Clinton proved that the prosecutor's office mishandled the evidence. And they did. The rapist got off because of the prosecutor. Plain and simple.
