Nobody but me understands why he did it. I was unfocused and while, at the time it really, really made me mad, I understood what his point was. I will never be unprepared again.
Maybe he wanted you to Focus and get your Attention .....I believe it did both (You'll never forget it)

That's his job. If the prosecution can't show that a guilty man is guilty, whether it is because he is innocent, because his guilt cannot be demonstrated, or because the prosecutor is incompetent, the defendant is to be set free.

There will always be higher priced lawyers with no conscious that will use every trick in the book to try to get pedophiles they know are guilty back on the street to abuse again.
The ones with perfect consciences and impeccable ethics will do the same. That's they're job. Your comment implies that a defense attorney giving a guilty defendant a zealous defense is unethical if the defendant is not convicted. That's simply not true.

Why does Catcher need to be one of those lawyers? How could he agree to even try?
He doesn't need to be any particular type of lawyer. Why would he choose to be a defense attorney? Why not?

Yes its not his fault he may have an advantage over the system.
That wouldn't be an advantage over the system. That would be a professional advantage - a competitive advantage.

it most certainly is his responsibility to do the right thing. And the right thing is when you've got someone whose guilt you are all but sure of that abuses children and you know if they get out they will do it again
The right thing for the defense attorney to do is to try to win an acquittal for his client. Period. If the attorney plays jury by judging his client guilty and helping the prosecution, he is unethical. Why even have a trial if your lawyer has already tried you in his head? I think you would understand that if your lawyer did that to you.
Skombolis wrote:
what moral person would try to aid them in that? Would you?
If I were a defense attorney, yes, I would, just as I would try to cure his pneumonia if I were his doctor. The opposite is unthinkable.

You have a legitimate concern if the justice system that doesn't protect the public or damages the innocent. But I think your criticism is misdirected. If Catcher's only sin is being a better attorney than the prosecutor, I say blame the prosecutor, or the system that let him/her prosecute.

We all learn that, darlin.
That's not an viable excuse.
It wasn't an excuse, it's a reason.
There ya go. I take medication for that.
Eventually you'll learn patience and won't needs those meds.
Now we're back to question number 1.
Which was "Do you think there was something else you could have done to avoid being bitten and subsequently hitting a woman?"

Which I answered, walk away from the argument before it becomes a fight.

No matter what anyone else say's I know what he meant, he just said it in a bad way.
Now this is true, you haven't harassed me about it.

But you do call it "striking an infant" which exaggerates it.

Honestly.
I know why you'd be afraid to share here..
I commend you on your mind your thoughts your heart and your spirit.
No man should ever strike a woman.. RR's story is suspect anyways-
No doubt it happens every day- domestic abuse is a crime on humanity-
- he's making a
joke of it.

Agreed.

And no woman should ever viscously bite a man.

The term "creamed corn" is a little off-putting.

It's been two years now almost to the day. I'm getting better at it. My lateral movement still needs some work when I try to move to the right but I'm not falling down as much.
Keep drinking that beer, you'll feel like you're leaning to the right but you're are actually standing straight up or are leaning to the left so you lean right even further.

You'll get there, I have faith.

Wait you're talking about inebriation effects right?

I'm a student of Wing Chun. I have been since birth. I know everything there is to know about it. The physical parts of it are second nature to me. Even with one leg, nobody can touch me. I could have been the youngest master ever but I don't adhere to the basic tenets. I tried. I can't.
Just like Christians know their Bible and try to be Christ like. They can't. It's not possible. There are no Christians here.
I advise you take what you think about "what Christians should be" off that pedestal.

We're not perfect.

Well, except me of course.

Correct.
It's not possible.
I believe Christ is in my heart- my very being.
And I will stand beside: the prisoner the murderer and the thief any day before
I will stand with a christian elitist.
Just as Jesus would have done.
Very nice.

Kudos.

Well look at that
After a 6 months of staying on the fence and almost going atheist she finally makes a commitment again!
Yet only a few weeks ago you claimed if people betrayed your confidence they just helped to show you the love of Christ isn't real. And a few weeks before that you didn't know if Christ stays in a person's heart
You are such a fraud
What? Why?

She said Christ is in her heart.

Why do you post this to her?

Yes, I agree. Humanist/Enlightenment values were a departure from the Middle Ages and its Christian theocrahies.
Christianity is not a place to learn about Enlightenment values like democracy, political freedom, and secular government. It espouses monarchy and submissive obedience, and justice based on the arbitrary decrees of an absolute god whose, will on a specific matter is seldom agreed upon by those speaking for it.
Agreed, the entire bible supports absolute monarchies and Dictatorships with few individual rights.

?

You are responding to a post of Skom's that pretty much tells you why he'd
post that.

He doesn't believe Christ is in my heart. He believes I am a fraud that only voices my opinion because
I am seeking approval from anonymous posters on wsjlm.
There you go-

Are you asking him for a run down if his insults/dislike towards me here?
lol.

Just read all his posts to me from last night.
I haven't read them all- just skimmed them.
You didn't read them?
- and if you did - you're still asking the question?
