Philosopher-Bum on Public Defenders

An interesting story by and about a homeless guy prosecuted for trespass and his travails with the San Diego Public Defender's Office. Read all the way for the nice twist at the end.

HT to Skelly who notes "I suspect that there's quite a bit of spin going on here, and surely another side to the story, but any homeless guy who can quote G.K. Chesterton can't be all wrong."
