Today was one of those days that I will look back upon, as being one of the most important days of my career. I have a horrible, terrible case with an innocent client facing life in prison and it feels like I might not sleep for the next few years. Only a real pd knows this misery. Right now I need to huddle up with my public defender community, arms on shoulders, pull our heads together, talk it out, yell it out, scream it out, cry it out, march together, fight together, win together. If I could invite all of you over, we would eat pizza and drink beer and wine and definitely something stronger, whiskey sounds good, and when it was all over I'd feel ok, I'd have a plan, I'd feel stronger having had you here to support me.
