Parent Article: Legal Update: The Lafayette Eight
Hidden with code "Policy Violation"
A Fool For A Client
16 Apr 2006
Truth has been outed!: the Lafayette 8 it seems are stuck with the loser National Lawyers Guild as "counsel" (note the correct spelling, Attorney Patrick). NLG is a "progressive" (read old CPUSA front) that long has been eclipsed by the ACLU, Center for Constitutional Rights, and many fine lawyers at top law firms who do "pro bono" work.

Few lawyers, even liberal lawyers belong to this former Communist front that is composed mostly of unsuccessful solo practicioners looking for a promotional angle. Defendants, ask NLG lawyers what cars they drive; what shoes they wear. Do they live in a home or condo worth over $1million? Where is their second home and what is it worth? Do these Guild losers have Red Sox or Celtics season tickets, or will they sit you in a box at Gillette Stadium? If they can't, are they the lawyers you so richly deserve?

Like it or not, the US legal system is based on individual rights. Each criminal client has the right to say nothing, each defendant must be proven guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt. What is NLG afraid of? That it will lost another case?

NLG is using these poor fools. The defendants' liberty comes second to the CAUSE.

Political law they blab about is no law in the USA. Ask these losers how far the pathetic Mumia, headed for Death Row has gotten in Philly with a political defense like the one these atheist Communists plan for you.

U.S. Judges hate political defenses. Win on reasonable doubt, not dubious arguments not grounded in law Massachusetts judges don't recognize.

Lafayette Defendants: the Constitution gives each one of you the right to select your own counsel and each one of you has the right to have counsel provided for you if you can't afford counsel . Don't let this dwindling group of opportunistic leftist has beens deprive you of your rights.
