AZ shooter gets top attorney...WTF?

This is total BS.....no doubt that this human sewage committed the crime...now how g0ddam much will it cost us taxpayers to pay for his defense? Then his life is possibly spared.....how far are these lunatic liberals gonna push this country further down the sh!t-hole.....fukin unbelievable!


SAN DIEGO — The attorney for a 22-year-old loner accused of trying to assassinate Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has a low-key style and a record of saving high-profile clients from the death penalty.

Judy Clarke worked on plea agreements that spared "Unabomber" Ted Kaczynski and Eric Rudolph, who bombed abortion clinics in the late 1990s and Atlanta's Olympic park in 1996. She was on a team that negotiated a plea that avoided death for white supremacist Buford Furrow Jr., who shot up a Jewish center in Los Angeles in 1999.

She also helped persuade a jury to spare the life of Susan Smith, who strapped her sons in their car seats and let her car roll into a South Carolina lake in 1994, carrying the boys to their deaths.

Colleagues describe Clarke, 58, as a tireless advocate for her clients and a staunch opponent of the death penalty who shuns the spotlight.

It will either be pro-bono or more than likely paid for out of the state's indigent defense fund.

States indigent defense fund only covers their staffed public defenders. Unless he pays the difference.

But if he is capable of paying the difference he doesnt qualify for the IDF

GA pays for lawyers outside of the public defenders pool when it comes to high profile cases, they did in the Fulton County Courthouse shootings.

I am ASSuming Arizona will do the same.

I wonder how quickly her thoughts on the death penalty would change if that was her daughter gunned down by that parasite.

Don't confuse the point....she is against others receiving justice.

Re: AZ shooter gets top attorney...WTF?

Could look at it like this. Give the guy a total shythead attorney, makes lots of mistakes, he could drag it out forever. Give him someone that's on top of it, when it's done, it's done. It's just going to be a dog and pony show anyway. Guilt isn't the issue. That's a given. Now their just going to figure out how politicaly correct they can be at the tax payers expense. It's gonna be a joke. A slap in the face to hard working, tax paying, law abiding citizens. Kill him and be done. No reason to support him for years and years in the system. What can he possibly bring to society. I think he's already showed what he thought of society. With his actions, he sealed his fate. I wonder if this attorney would be all bleeding heart for him if it were her daughter that was needlessly slaughtered. Just my .02.

Re: AZ shooter gets top attorney...WTF?

The state does that to reduce the chance of legitimate appeals being made I imagine.

I hate that we have to pay for this as tax payers but the reality is that everyone deserves someone to represent them to make sure that the law treats them fairly. Otherwise poor people would simply get railroaded w/ no real protection from abusive police forces and prosecuters although that happens anyways.

I don't know how some of these defense attorneys defend someone that commited a horrible crime but they do deserve legal representation.

BTW, if she is getting paid the standard public defender rates she would make more per hour picking up a job at the local Subway sandwich shop. I have a childhood friend that did this work and she said that the rates for a murder charge literally left her w/ no money to conduct a proper investigation. It was enough for like 8 hours to prepare a murder defense where she really needed like 120 hours or more. Most PD's just provide a shoddy defense. She worked on her own dime to provide everyone w/ a real defense.

I'm officially...Stroke-less.

Re: AZ shooter gets top attorney...WTF?

Most likely she won't try to get this guy off the hook, but rather keep him from the death penalty. To do so, she'll most likely bargain with prosecutors, making the case probably faster and easier than it would have been with anyone else.

That's my bet.
