This is unreal, surely that is not something a lawyer would seriously expect anyone to believe.

http://www.stuff.co.nz/world/americas/67624397/officer-feared-for-life-in-137shot-barrage

 
A lawyer for a Cleveland police officer charged in the deaths of two unarmed suspects says the 13 officers who shot at a beat-up car after a high-speed chase in November 2012 feared for their lives when they fired 137 rounds at the vehicle.

The lawyer said during opening arguments that 31-year-old Michael Brelo's tactics could be questioned, but his justification for having fired 15 shots from the hood of the suspects' car was to eliminate a threat to his and other officers' lives.

Never let the truth interfere with a story.

of course the lawyer is going to say what ever he can to get his client off.
Most LEO's are the biggest cowards around, and the lawyer is playing up to this.

Does the lawyer charge extra for getting his client off ?

Oh dear me... I believe I just spotted a double meaning pun there.  Guess that lawyer really is a whore.

I've been saying for years that cops are doing banditry but they're not cut out for it.  Highway bandits were brave men in the olden days, and their police replacements simply lack the guts to rob you without hiding behind some god of their own making... the state, and the worshipful masses who uphold it.  Most cops are just low grade bullies without the guts to actually throw down with a real hostile.  Hell they whine when some guy with a tire iron kicks their asses for some actually valid reason and they whine they didn't have enough weapons, armor and backup.
