Can’t Step on the Toes of Another Lawyer

JusticeThey left a monster free because they didn’t want to “second guess” another lawyer. Manhattan federal prosecutors declined to pursue Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell case in 2016: sources

Because “second guessing” a colleague wouldn’t show proper respect to a fellow member of the cloth the fraternity the brotherhood the profession.

Some people think I am using hyperbole when I write about the arrogance of attorneys.

Yet more rehashing of Epstein’s reign of terror. But the most insane part of the story is why the US Prosecutor in New York didn’t take action for 2 years.

“This was not a situation where we were dealing with people who didn’t care. I never thought they didn’t believe our story. I never had any doubt they were sympathetic, even outraged by it. They simply seemed to feel they couldn’t be seen as second guessing what the U.S. Attorney in Florida had done,” [Lawyer David] Boies said. [My emphasis. Z-Deb]

The ONLY reason that they decided that they had to “second guess” another attorney, is because the Miami Herald shined a great big, embarrassing light on the situation.

The office’s attitude changed after the Miami Herald highlighted the “Perversion of Justice” that resulted in Epstein receiving a slap on the wrist.

I mean be fair; that was seriously bad publicity.

The Criminal Justice System. It is a “system,” which means it takes care of itself first. It is often Criminal. And it has almost no interest in Justice.
