Who's the Killer?
So the NACDL (National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers) for some reason sent me their publication, in which I was told I could attend this training for capital defense:
In the twisted world of the legal left, a potential juror who believes in the death penalty in an appropriate case is referred to as a "Killer;" i.e., a juror potentially willing to "kill" the lawyer's client who is, you know, being tried because he is, you know, like, a real, actual killer. And the juror who will not impose death is a "Life-Giver." Unlike, again, the defendant who was what?-- A life-taker.
I suspect strongly that in the surreal universe of these sleaze bag lawyers, who are willing to call jurors "killers," they never refer to their clients as killers, or even life-takers.
Here's what you'd be treated to if you attend the conference:

This is a truly mentally disturbed bunch, and a disgrace to our supposedly learned profession.
