Pro Bono Who?


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.”
