Why not to be a defense lawyer in the trial of a notorious murder case

The Post has this article ("Sniper Trial Took Toll on Attorneys," 3/21/04) on how the Muhammad trial affected the lawyers on his defense team.

The article quotes an experienced Richmond lawyer as saying this: "No single human being should be given the responsibility for preventing the deliberate killing of someone else by society. . . . It's enormous pressure. I can think of no more awful work in the world."
