Lawyers and violence

Published May 15, 2013 08:11am

FOR the last five or so years the nation has witnessed with great horror the brute demonstration of force by various lawyers. Lawyers are supposed to be custodians of law, and are not supposed to take the law into their hands, whatever may be the opposition. Two wrongs never make a right.

We have witnessed lawyers beating and manhandling lower court judges, police and their political opponents.

In a nutshell, might is right. If that be the case, then the military dictator is equally right.
