Reply To: “There are lies, and then there are damn lies” — Mark Twain, paraphrased

W John Martius Jr

I thought lawyers are “officers of the court” and are required to speak the truth. When that premise breaks down, what hope is there for the rest of us? Right leaning US Supreme Court is likely to be lazy and believe all that is brought before them unless they are compelled to look at facts and statistics and punish those who come before them with falsehoods.
Our justice system is severely corrupted with commercial penal facilities tasked with keeping themselves in profit mode which equals keeping people in jail. Who better to fill the cells than those least able to defend their cause.
Very sad state of affairs indeed. This nation is in trouble… indeed.
