“If the facts are against you, argue the law. If the law is against you, argue the facts. If both the law and the facts are against you, pound the table and yell.”
That’s a dictum that is taught to almost every first year law student. If your client is in a no-win situation, pound the table and yell like a kid.
Seems like that’s something one of the homeless advocacy groups in Asheville is doing.
There was an item in today’s Citizen-Times reporting about a group that has filed a complaint against two bicycle cops for allegedly harassing and “profiling” homeless people. Bullshit.
I know the two cops. I know the homeless involved. It never happened. No, I wasn’t there at the date/place and time of the offense, but when something looks like a duck, smells like a duck and walks like a duck, it’s probably a duck.
Again, some of the leaders of homeless advocacy groups have proven that they have no idea what it takes to truly help the homeless.
So they pound the table and yell.
