    My response has ZERO to do with my political views.
    You're right. If attorneys refused to provide a vigorous defense for the guilty, our justice system would grind to a halt, as they say.

    Even our most dastardly criminals, those who seem obviously guilty and whose crimes are heinous and unspeakable, get attorneys and those attorneys are obligated to try to defend their client and mitigate their punishments using every possible strategy and technique. That is their obligation. They should not be penalized for doing their jobs.
