I know little about the Pakistani legal environment. I know, in the US, Federal judges represent the hierarchy of the criminal cult enterprise that is our lawyer profession. A strong Executive should send Federal Marshals to remove all lawyers from these benches for their out of control insurrection against the Constitution's Article Section 1. It certainly does not permit judicial review. Brief trials would consist of the reading of excerpts of their decisions. Then they would hang. There would be no collateral lawyer gotcha of minor corruption nor of trivial rule breaking. Nothing rises even close to the crime inherent in these appellate decisions.

Then, statutes would ban lawyers from all benches, legislative seats, and policy positions in the Executive, as they now ban convicted felons.

Lincoln signed the arrest warrant for Taney for his judicial review, the first after Marbury. It was called the Dred Scott case. This opinion canceled the Missouri Compromise. It violated ratified international treaty. It violated settled international law. It extended slavery to all the states, against the will of their elected officials. It ended the prospect for a peaceful end to slavery, and set off a civil war. If Taney should not have hanged, who should by their criminality? A member of the criminal cult enterprise persuaded Lincoln to not hand the warrant to the Marshal waiting in the room for it.

I see the above pic, I see the Mafia demanding better treatment and privileges. What unmitigated gall.

SC, you really disappoint me. What went wrong here? Let's see...

Well, first, you admit that you "know little about the Pakistani legal environment."

But then, you say the protest is about "the Mafia demanding better treatment and privileges. What unmitigated gall."

Yes. Unmitigated gall it is--that you would comment on a human rights issue that you admit to knowing nothing about. This is not about better treatment and privileges for the Pakistani lawyers. At all. It's about the Pakistani people, led by lawyers, academics, students, and human rights activists, fighting against the evisceration of their Constitution and institution of so-called "emergency rule" for no reason other than, well, Gen. Musharraf's unmitigated gall as you put it so finely.

Hate the player, not the game. Hate the lawyers, that's fine, but don't hate them for standing up against fascism. That would make you a fascism lover.
