You Have The Right To Be Represented By Counsel But...

 ...does an attorney have the right to refuse to represent you? If yes, then I can only think that the lawyer representing Colby Martin, reportedly of White Pigeon, Michigan, is quite possibly among the scum of the earth. Martin was arrested and reportedly was initially accused of manslaughter among other crimes after allegedly running down a woman who had been out for a walk.
Those charges reportedly have been changed with the top one now being a murder charge after Martin allegedly: ran down a woman with a vehicle, killed her, then had sex with her corpse. The reasons, at least some of them, for the upgraded charges reportedly are DNA and another reportedly is that the investigation of this case revealed Martin, before he allegedly killed the victim, had used the Internet to look up porn related to having sex with unconscious and dead women. More at the source.
If true, I am aghast and left wondering - will the wonders depravity of humankind never cease? Me thinks there are monsters among us.

All the best,
Glenn B

Read The Devil in the White City by Erik Larsen if you want to know about human depravity. I think you would like the story, as the detective who solves the case would be someone you could identify with.

I have read very few books in the last 10-15 years, at least ones I have never read before. Even rereading old ones has been rare for me although I actually am reading a new one for me right now about organized crime in the 1920s & 30s. I do too much 'reading' on the Internet I guess. I have looked into the book and I may go to Books A Million tomorrow to see if they have a hardcover copy. I glanced at the authors website and must say a nonfiction book about a psycho killer at the 1893 World's Fair looks interesting. Thanks. Hope all is well with you up in NH. I miss the blogger shoots.
