This show is kinda smug, but it’s alright.

Like, there’s a strong presumption in society that the people the police arrest are guilty and that defending them is something unsavory or perfunctory. It’s weird and shitty, but funding public defenders requires accepting the systemic failure or malice of a major pillar of order in our society so I guess we don’t because it’s unpleasant to think about and cheaper to let poor people go to jail.
