Mini-minds in action

Steve Lopez must be a peach of a guy since his brain is so fuzzy. He is seriously upset that rich defendants are allowed to use a lot of their own money to fight prosecution, concluding that that is taking unfair advantage of our legal system. But he has no problem with the overwhelming financial and manpower advantage that every prosecutor's office wields over criminal defendants.

Lopez infers that injustice is bought by rich defendants. That is an egregious insult to our courts and to every juror who submits to his public service.

Lopez obviously subsctibes to the presumption of guilt: once a person in arrested, it is then his obligation to prove his innocence. If, however, the defendant spends a lot of money in this quest, then ipso facto, he must surely be guilty.
