Of course the lawyers profit more than the criminals they prosecute or defend. LOL.
It's all lawyers, all the way down. Most criminals are guilty of actions deemed "criminal" by legislators, who are 99% lawyers. That's why lawyers exist in the first place, aside from normalizing usury.
The rest is just a massive protection racket, disguised as a Ponzi scheme to make it more palatable.
But a vast majority of people still believe that the Lieutenants and Chiefs and City Manager's Offices are just full of professionalism and integrity, and that they can be trusted.
