    Have you watched "Last Chance Lawyer"? If not, you might enjoy it. I did.

    Great program, great Lawyer (did I really say that?). I noticed he'd successfully defended some people multiple times so either the Police were trying to frame them for something or......................
    If I'd wanted to live in a Banana Republic I'd have gone to South America.

    The US lawyer states that cases are not decided on the facts; they are decided on emotion. He also says that the defendant, when he or she walks into the court, is always presumed to be guilty. I suspect that he is right on both counts. His wife is terrific.

    Courts are the same here and probably elsewhere. The American system is a bit brutal but he's right about how cases are decided.
