Hillary (3) – Child rape cases are a hoot

You might want to start with the background article.

Summary: Hillary successfully defended a child rapist — oops, I mean “accused” child rapist — back in 1975. But that is not the interesting part. The interesting part is this interview:

Note that this is raw source material. No pundits; no shills; no conspiracies… Just Hillary Rodham, in her own words.

Now, I can already hear you blathering something about adversarial justice systems, so I will pause to let you finish.

There, are you done? Good. Yes, yes, I understand the right to counsel. I understand that it is better to let ten guilty men go free (or was it 100?) than to punish one innocent. I understand the argument that, if you rape a 12-year-old girl but the prosecution mishandles your underwear with her blood on it, that you “should” walk. I do not necessarily agree, but I certainly understand the argument. So let’s say we stipulate all of this.

This interview is still incredibly damning, not for what it says about the case, but for what it says about the state of mind afterward.

Some of us would have trouble defending an accused child rapist. If we accepted the case and came to believe our client was guilty, many of us would have trouble proceeding. If we proceeded anyway and won, almost all of us would have mixed emotions at best. We would not later reminisce about it, and boast about it, and laugh about it. We would not say in an interview, “Lawdy, I had some tough cases in those days! I remember this one child rapist yuk yuk yuk … and I got him off with time served! Ah, memories.” We would be incapable of this because of that little voice in our head; you know, the one that distinguishes right from wrong? That little voice would constantly be whispering, “Dear God, he RAPED that little girl and I helped him go free.”

A few people are born without that little voice. We call them “sociopaths”. This recording demonstrates that Hillary lacks that little voice.

But please, do not take my word for it. Do not let me, or anyone else, tell you what to think. Listen for yourself, and draw your own conclusions.
