Watching 'William Kunstler;Disturbing Universe' about one of the most infamous lawyers of the twentieth century, who fought for civil rights with Martin Luther King Jr. and represented the famed 'Chicago 8' activists, inmates in Attica prison as well as the American Indian Movement...many accused rapists, terrorists, mafian boses... Seeing how hated he was by white middles class and even sometimes by his family...one would wonder what do people really expect lawyers to do? Fight for justice for everyone or just to be on the right of the law /and forget what is right, just and fair/?
