A Cautionary Tale

Posted By Cliff Tuttle | November 5, 2012

No. 915

The Post-Gazette prints this story.

It is easy to make light of this situation: a 72 year old lawyer complaining about treatment in the jail, including Jewish lawyer slurs.  But some of the things complained of, including deprivation of medicine, are all too common.  We should remember that any of us can be arrested on some pretext, forced to endure the deprivations of pre-trial incarceration and ultimately be found not guilty.  A citizen who is jailed but not yet convicted should be treated with concern, compassion and dignity.

Hat Tip to Third Chair: Pittsburgh, the tireless champion of the underdog among lawyers!
