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."
