"Hooray for the public defenders!"

Jaybeas Corpus is winding up his summer p.d. internship. He gives a link to Injustice Anywhere and U.S. District Judge John Coughenour's inspiring and patriotic statement from the bench in Seattle yesterday, then concludes with a cheer for our side:

I couldn't have asked for a better summer experience. I discovered that I definitely have an interest in criminal law, and I could definitely see myself working in a PD's office at some point in my life... these people do amazing work for their clients, and it's really a major driving force behind the legitimacy of our judicial system. So, in short, hooray for the public defenders!
