Johnnie Cohran remembered

I learned last evening that a renowned defense attorney passed away. I did not believe the news, and after confirming the source, I was taken aback.

Although, I am not an attorney, Cochran certainly was an inspiration. He spoke truth to power. Moreover, Cochran typified an uncomprising presence for a penal system wasn't always color blind. He's represented some very high-profile defendants. What is probably little known is that he did alot of work for the grassroots population too.

I believe he served as a stark reminder that justice doesn't always have to be one-sided.
