You tell me why our states refused to abide by the US Con which says in two places that every defendant is entitled to a lawyer? In 1963, a Florida prisoner named Wainwright sued his warden, named Gideon.
In many circles, it is simply unacceptable to speak to law enforcement, testify at a hearing, or make any statements.

I thought the job of the police was to:
1. Protect public property.
2. Protect private property.
3. Catch Criminals.
4. Help the judical system sort out to find real criminals to crimes.
At least, that's what I've read.
