This was discussed before, about Hillary Clinton defending a child rapist and it appears that some were mistaken when they said that she had to take the case. I came across the tape today when someone had mentioned how she laughed about defending the child rapist and his getting off, the child was 12 years old.

In this tape, she explains that she took the case as a "favor" for someone that asked her for the favor (I suspect it was someone that could do something for her career), I believe she would do ANYTHING to advance her wealth and career:

She was doing legal aid work at the University of Arkansas.

Do you think she got paid big money for this?

Yes, a Judge appointed her to the case. YES, she asked to get out of it.

Did Hillary Clinton ask to be 'relieved' from representing an accused rapist in 1970s? | PolitiFact

Here's the thing when you are a lawyer, you often end up with cases where you don't necessarily like the client however you must give them the best defense possible. My husband was assigned plenty of soldiers who he knew were guilty, thought were an affront to the uniform, and would have much rather prosecuted but he still had to give them a vigorous defense. 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.

There's no shame in being objective.

Being a Gump supporter on the other hand...

Sometimes being a lawyer requires them to get down in the mud, and do some despicable things (and laughing about it), that doesn't mean that we should accept someone with that kind of moral character as our next president.

What tripe. Do you even know any lawyers?

Many very smart people there.

YES - they get cases they don't want. YES, they have to take them. YES, our constitution promises a defense to every accused.

The question is ~ why do you hate the constitution?

It's a fallacious question.

Then again I assume you don't really want to address the facts behind how Hillary handled that case.
