  1. Here is a person that has more than likely not only never contributed an ounce of good to society but willingly and remorselessly caused harm. And yet society is now further burdened to fix it up and send it back to cause even more damage…and it will not likely collaborate with police!
    Let’s ounce again hear from a defense lawyer to explain to us how keeping these sort of people properly represented in a court of law benefits us.
