Dear Jamison Koehler:
Thank you so much for featuring me in your Blawg Review this week. You’ve asked me to write a brilliant post before you publish it tomorrow. I’ve thought of several great ideas, including: (1) the top 20 ways my perspective has changed since I went from overzealous prosecutor to co-dependent defense attorney, (2) why Andrew Gallo’s conviction for murdering Angels’ pitcher Nick Adenhart was a foregone conclusion, given California’s screwy DUI homicide laws, and (3) why your recent pro-colonoscopy post will likely result in you saving lives, but losing potential clients.
But alas, the words aren’t flowing today. So rather than write something unworthy of my enormous potential, I bring you the following cartoon that illustrates how the Fourth Amendment often works in the courtroom:
P.S. While the cartoon is funny, I laughed even harder at a comment on Youtube. Someone named Auggie97 wrote: “If you think officer safety is funny, cops do get shot a lot more often then defense lawyers.” Get a grip, Auggie97. It’s a joke. And while you’re at it, work on your spelling and sentence structure. Cops do get shot more often than defense attorneys, but not because anyone thinks officer safety is funny.
