A recent column
in the American Spectator
about pro bono
legal efforts to help a murderer escape justice
brings up a question: why is it pro bono publico
to help someone get away with murder?
But even if one granted a theoretical "public good"
in helping to make sure that justice is done to accused American citizens, it wouldn`t apply to the Treason Lobby
`s free (or worse, taxpayer subsidized)
legal assistance to people who aren`t part
of the the American public at all.
Perhaps they should call this kind of advocacy "Pro Bono Mexico."
