Question by : You are working for a criminal defense lawyer. She is representing a man accused of kidnapping, raping and vi?
You are working for a criminal defense lawyer. She is representing a man accused of kidnapping, raping and videotaping the murder of a two year-old child. How would you feel about assisting the attorney on the case? Are there ethical issues in allowing one’s personal feelings to be expressed in working on a case? What if you have strong feelings against the client’s position?

Best answer:

Answer by Ben
You shouldn’t be working as a, or for, a criminal defense lawyer if you feel this way. I would be willing to bet that this will not be your last case that you will object to morally.

A pachinko parlor near the Ueno Ame-yoko shopping area in Tokyo, Japan. Pachinko is everywhere. For those who don’t know what pachinko is, it is basically a legal form of gambling. Instead of earning money, which would be illegal, you can gamble these little metal ball bearings in order to win more ball bearings. Those can then be exchanged for goods, or coupons… Which can be exchanged for cash. Complicated? Not really once you get the hang of it.

Answer by AlanC
The most obvious answer is that they worship different gods. The Christians, of course, worship the true God, whereas those of Muslim faith worship Allah.

Question by russellmania8523: Legal law question about murder charge.?
I am betting someone at work $ 100 that he can’t drink a whole bottle of everclear. He says he can, but I know he is full of shit. I told him that $ 100 says you can’t. I am even going to supply the bottle for him. I bet that he can’t drink the whole bottle without puking or hitting the floor. If he dies of alcohol poisoning, could I be charged with murder. Would I be help accountable for him dying if I supply him the bottle and do nothing to stop him from drinking it all. He is 21 years old.

Question by 2fine4u: What do you know about the lemon law?
I recently went to North Carolina and purchased a used car for my neice. I had a mechanic go over the car. There were no problems. Now it is a week later and the car is skipping. I called the dealership and told him that either he fix it, replace it, or give my money back. I told him that it had not been 30 days yet. He says that it does not matter because in NC that the lemon law only applies to new cars.Is this true?

Best answer:

Answer by regerugged
Yes. Check your records. Did the dealer give you a warranty or sell it “as is?”
I bought a used vehicle and had a mechanic go over it beforehand. I paid $ 6,000 for it, and in less than five years spent $ 8,000 keeping it on the road. When you buy used, you take a chance.

Burma protest for junta to face International Criminal Court

Burmese protesters at the Burma Embassy in London called for the International Criminal Court to investigate the military junta’s heinous crimes againsts its own people.

Harvard report calls for Burma inquiry

www.boston.com/news/world/worldly_boston/2009/05/harvard_…

Burma is once more in the headlines, with opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi again on trial, and the United Nations considering yet another condemnation of the military junta that rules Burma.

A Harvard Law School human rights group says it’s time to do more than just issue another statement about Burma. Rather, the report argues, the United Nations Security Council should hold a formal commission of inquiry into human rights abuses that could lead to an international tribunal like those for the former Yugoslavia and Darfur.

The Harvard Law School’s International Human Rights Clinic issued a detailed report today finding that "human rights abuses in Burma are widespread, systematic and part of state policy." It said the evidence suggests the Burmese regime "may be committing crimes against humanity and war crimes prosecutable under international law."

Download the report here:
www.law.harvard.edu/programs/hrp/documents/Crimes-in-Burm…

The clinic’s 114-page report examines sources including 15 years worth of UN documents reporting on abuses including the forced displacement of 3,000 villages in eastern Burma and "widespread and systematic sexual violence, torture and summary execution of innocent civilians."

The report was commissioned by five of the world’s most prominent legal experts on human rights: Judge Richard Goldstone of South Africa, Judge Patricia Wald of the United States, Judge Pedro Nikken of Venezuela, Judge Ganzorig Bombosuren of Mongolia and Sir Geoffrey Nice of Britain. These jurists all have experience investigating human rights abuses and prosecuting the alleged perpetrators in international rights tribunals.

The jurists write in the preface to the report: "Over and over again, UN resolutions and special rapporteurs have spoken out about the abuses that have been reported to them in Burma. The UN Security Council has not moved forward as it should and has in similar situations such as those in the former Yugoslavia and Darfur."

That commission of inquiry’s findings would determine whether the Burma situation is referred to the International Criminal Court or a special tribunal, the jurists say.

During Nobel Peace Prize Winner Aung San Suu Kyi’s show trial in Burma, there was a daily protest during weekdays outside the Burma Embassy in London. The protesters called for the release of All Political Prisoners in Burma. There are over 2,100 known political prisoners in Burma.

Protesters also called for respect for human rights and ethnic minorities in Burma. The corrupt military junta is notorious for its genocide against ethnic minorities, forced labour, use of child soldiers, ill treatment of Buddhist monks, Muslims and Christians.

Over 3,300 Karen villages have been destroyed by the junta. Already displaced Karen villagers faced renewed mortar attacks in June 2009, causing thousands to flee to Thailand, despite the international attention already on Burma, due to Aung San Suu Kyi’s trial.

This year ASEAN hailed the creation of a regional human rights body as a historic first step toward confronting abuses in the region. ASEAN should get to work in Burma: stopping the genocide of the Karen people, widespread oppression of ethnic minorities, abuse of the Rohingya Muslims, child soldiers, forced labour and forced conscription into the army. A clear milestone by which ASEAN’s regional human rights policy will be judged is whether ASEAN can even help free more than 2,100 known fellow political prisoners in Burma as well as Nobel Peace prize winning Aung San Suu Kyi.
