If we are, indeed, the guardians of Democracy,
then let us guard it and not fall asleep on our laurels or let the impersonal
doctrines of guilt and innocence that we invent to hide our anger from
ourselves take over the responsibility of making not only just, but also
morally responsible decisions; for all the decisions we make go further than
the courtroom. They enter into our professional family, and neighborly lives as
well. A truly thought provoking must-read.
