Lawyers policing lawyers. I've noticed the bar (pun intended) to actually sanction tends to be pretty high.

Ahhhhh, cry me a river. The poor woman; she hollers discrimination because the law won't let her get away with breaking the law because she's black.

It’s not getting away with breaking the law that is her basis for complaint. It’s the punishment for the breaking of the law while being black and a woman, and NOT getting treated equally for breaking the law as your whiteand male counter parts. Guilty punishment should be handed down the same for the same offenses and the same number of complaints. NO ONE should get away with breaking the law. She didn’t say she was innocent, she said she was not getting the same punishment as her white and male counterparts who did the same things as she has been accused.
