Justice for all

What does it mean? It means that if you are poor the government dont want you to have the lawyer you want they want you to have the lawyer they want. Thats the beginning and the end of it. They want to control your lawyer. Your lawyer will be a bureaucrat whose boss is a bureaucrat and his boss is a bureaucrat and his boss is the Minister of Justice so your lawyer is controlled by the Minister of Justice. Now if you are a poor person you are entitled to choose your own lawyer but only if you pay that person yourself. If you cannot afford to pay your lawyer and you have to apply for legal aid you do not get to choose your own lawyer. So there are now two classes of litigants those who can afford to pay their own lawyer and those who cannot afford to pay a lawyer and accordingly cannot choose their own lawyer and they get a lawyer who is controlled by the government. The government investigates you, arrests and charges you, prosecutes you, and last and probably least defends you. Why would the government upset all their own handiwork in investigating you, arresting and charging you, and prosecuting you by defending you and defeating themselves with an own goal. Doesnt make sense? Remember if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and swims like a duck, and has feathers like a duck, and has little ducklings behind it like a duck, and flys away during the duck season, and hangs in the windows of Chinese restaurants, and lays eggs like a duck it probably is a freakin duck!
