UPDATE: A possible BIG case is going on in Broweird.
There are in our collective history moments when the man meets the opportunity and history is made. Washington at Valley Forge. Eisenhower on June 5, 1944. President Reagan saying "Tear down this wall."
And Daniel Pearson and Harry Prebish forming FACDL Miami.
At least that's what FACDL would have you believe.
Everyone loves the blog when we skewer KFR or POTUS 45 or some drunken Judge in Broward.
But poke a bit of fun at the legal equivalent of Mother Teresa? Oh no. "The Blog is being mean to us. Wa wa wa."
We came into being mocking those in the criminal justice system who were self-important frauds. And we shall continue to do so.
FACDL serves an important function. Too many for us to list here. We support their goals and efforts. But memo to the FACDL board- when you're in your meetings and one of you makes a sarcastic mention that what you're discussing will be on the blog the next day- we get five or six emails that night.
When you form your endless committees to speak to the court committees and the prosecutor committees about the need for more committees? Don't expect to escape our mocking posts.
Fight the good fight. Your members are indeed liberty's last champion. When no one else will stand in the way of the government who is crushing some individual, it's a criminal defense lawyer who rises to defend the person and the constitution.
You give awards and a little well deserved recognition to under-paid PDs who struggle every day to get blow-hard judges trying to impress the Federalist Society with their "tough on crime" rulings. Well done.
Just remember that one of the amendments you defend is the First.
And when we give you some publicity - "Facdl - motto: dues dues dues" laugh and shake it off and move on.
Or in the memorable words of Sgt Hulka in Stripes: "Lighten up Francis."
Now go fight for justice and be the heroes you all are-including your former President Brian
