The voters have decided that jaime is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.
Also by jaime+35Unpopular opinion: Lawyer isn't a dishonest profession. A lawyer's responsibility is not to state their opinion on guilt or innocence, but to state their opinion on what one must believe to justify believing guilt or innocence. This, in turn, is grounded in the idea that every crime deserves justice and every defendant deserves a fair defense. So, for example, the defense could believe their client is guilty, yet defend their client in court in good conscience, because they aren't saying they think their client is innocent, just that they see a way someone could reasonably think that, amirite?
Also about crime, guilty, defense, justice, and defendant+37If the criminal justice system followed Danganronpa rules, there'd be no defendant, no complainant, no defense team, no prosecutor, just the judge and the jury, and the jury would consist entirely of all known witnesses. By the end of the trial, the jury would convict one of its own jurors. An acquittal would be unusual, and would indicate either a failure to subpoena the true guilty party, or a mistake in assuming a crime was committed in the first place. This would be a terrible system, so it's a good thing Danganronpa is nothing but fiction. amirite?
Also about Law+80"Grow a pair!" (show some courage, act like a man) is a plea to the weaklings and pushovers but there is no call for anyone to "Act like a woman!", amirite?
Also by jaime+33Words cannot describe the despair of getting a call or a text, excitedly grabbing your phone thinking she might have finally gotten back to you, and then realizing that's impossible because she's dead. amirite?
Also about Law+52Damn the rules! Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do, amirite?
Also by jaime+29Love is, for the most part, a proactive choice. Almost everyone has inner beauty on some level, in the same way someone you love is beautiful to you, so which person actually winds up being as beautiful to you as they are inside mostly depends on who you choose to spend enough time with to discover that beauty. In that regard, there's no right or wrong answer. Whoever you choose to love is an okay person to love, and if you decide to stop loving them, or the other way around, that's rough, but it's still also okay. It's even okay not to choose anyone. The same reasoning applies to friendship.
Also about state, guilty, and defendant+83In every State that has the death penalty, anytime a defendant on death row is found guilty again of the same crimes in a retrial, the judge/jury should be permitted by law to keep the defendant on death row. So that a retrial if granted, would not be an advantage for the inmate to automatically get off death row, regardless to being found guilty again of the same crimes. Amirite?
Also about innocent and guilty-133Guilty until proven innocent makes more sense than innocent until proven guilty. amirite?
Also about innocent, guilty, defense, and lawyer+853It would really suck to be a defense lawyer. You'd be defending people that might be guilty of terrible crimes, and if you did your job right, the guilty person would be let off and innocent people could be in danger. It would be hard to sleep at night, amirite?
