Lawyers weren't envisioned in founding
When our forefathers founded this great nation, they couldn’t envision the influence that lawyers would place in our government. We now are ruled by people in Congress and the presidency with law degrees. They pass laws that only benefit the "legal community," and not the common folks. In my 28 years in law enforcement, I probably worked with/against at least 100 attorneys. Of that number, I think I respected and trusted maybe 10-15 of them. Some went on to be judges, one got murdered. It seems that so many law students either sleep through ETHICS class or it is an open-book exam. I’m not condemning all lawyers, but only calling attention to the influence that they have on our society. I don’t believe that judges should be running for office under either political party. They are supposed to be impartial and unbiased. I have never met a human being like that.
