The clever beasts known as lawyers have created so-called Rules of Ethical Conduct, which permit them to continue their main goal of destroying the foundations of the American home and society while billing you for every hour they're awake, double on the weekends.
The Lawyer-Felon Privilege Edit
The Lawyer-Felon Privilege is one of the most well-known consequences of lawyers' Rules of Ethical Conduct. This "privilege" is truly a privilege, which lawyers have given to themselves. It may accurately be described as a "gift", from lawyers to themselves, to make up for the fact that no one cares enough about them to give them real birthday or Christmas gifts.
The lawyer-felon privilege is usually referred to by lawyers as the "attorney-client privilege" to mask its true nature. This privilege allows -- indeed it mandates -- confidentiality in the communications between a lawyer and the felon he is currently representing. Thus, for example, a felon may tell his lawyer: "I committed the crime." The lawyer is not permitted to reveal this knowledge to anyone; if he did so, he would be considered unethical under the lawyers' Rules of Ethical Conduct.
How does the Lawyer-Felon Privilege destroy American society? Edit
The Lawyer-Felon Privilege allows lawyers to figure out that their clients are felons. However, under the Lawyer-Felon privilege, lawyers cannot tell anyone that their client is a felon. Indeed, the purpose of this knowledge is to allow better obfuscation of Truth on the part of the lawyer. By becoming intimately familiar with the truth that he is trying to cover up, the lawyer is better able to formulate the "defense" (i.e., the lie).
Are there any exceptions to the Lawyer-Felon Privilege? Edit
As explained, the Lawyer-Felon Privilege allows lawyers to maintain in confidence the things that their felon tells them. There are exceptions to this rule, however. In most jurisdictions, lawyers are required to inform the police when their felon gives them information about a future crime that the felon will commit.
However, what is not commonly known is that these exceptions may be easily circumvented, using legal technicalities. If a felon tells a lawyer about a future crime, the lawyer will usually not disclose the future crime. There are any number of technical arguments the lawyer can come up with to justify maintaining confidentiality. These potential arguments are limitless; they include:
- "I did not believe my client when he told me he would commit a crime."
- "I thought my client was joking."
- "I thought my client was using the word 'is' in the sense of 'is not' ".
Thus, the "exceptions" to the Lawyer-Felon Privilege are in fact useless exceptions, and may best be seen as opportunities for lawyers to refine their skills at using legal technicalities.
