    Ah... I see that you totally missed my points. I shall state it explicitly then:

    (1) With a better lawyer, there is a chance of putting up a better case. That in turn can improve the outcome.

    (2) The judiciary is of course independent. In particular, it can be independent of popular expectations - what you think should be the sentence and judgement, may not be that way.

    Agreed with this, the law is the same for everyone but how you present the law in court will affect the result.

    Sometime back there was a case of a rich man's daughter whose car hit a cyclist and did not stop, when go to court the lawyer said that as the car comes with very good sound insulation she did not know that she had hit the cyclist and though that it was a tree branch, the judge took that into consideration and she got off lightly. This my friend is the result of having a good and expensive lawyer.

The car in front of me just refuse to let him filter in although the cab signal. Traffic isn't heavy at all! That few seconds isn't killing anyone but it is just the attitude. If you are traveling that direction, do filter towards the left once you are on the flyer over. Not everyone is giving way.
    Why the taxi never let that car go first ?

    It seems that the arrival of inboard cameras has a significant contribution to the shallower levels of entertainment industry, and maybe to the income of some law firms
