Truth Translation: WSBA Adopts New Public Defense Standards

Truth Translation

Washington State Bar Association, "The drink of injustice is on us."

Truth Translation: Washington State Bar Association: Now that we WSBA have thoroughly corrupted Judges and Prosecutors, their first order of business is to bankrupt you so that you are at the mercy of the Public Defenders we own. Guilty or not, you will be destroyed. In short, the Washington Bar Association now owns you lock-stock-and-barrel …hee, hee

Bonus Truth Translation: If you are a straight, white male just plead guilty as all justice will be denied. We already ran out of the City of Enumclaw through our WSBA state sponsored hatecrime, so if you are a white Christian male you will be more than denied justice.

The Council on Public Defense (CPD) unites representatives of the bar, private and public criminal defense attorneys, current and former prosecutors, the bench, elected officials and the public to address new and recurring challenges that impact the public defense system. The Council educates and informs policy makers on issues that need reform and provides concrete proposals that are enhanced by the comprehensive nature of the Council’s membership. The CPD is guided by its Charter (2023) and meets regularly throughout the year.
