Us v. Them

 Posted on June 17, 2007 in Uncategorized

By Troy McKinney, a lawyer's lawyer (in fact, my lawyer), a few of the differences between prosecutors and defenders:

They take away people's lives.We give people their lives back.They break up familles.We help families stay together.They cause and maximize pain.We prevent or minimize pain.They judge.We forgive.Their solutions are usually destructive.Our solutions are usually constructive.They cause kids to visit parents in prison.We prefer that kids and parents visit at home.They hear a story and look for the worst in people.We hear a story and look for the best in people.And, of course, the #1 difference (even though it is last here):They prosecute the innocent.We defend the innocent.
