Thank you for doing the work that you're doing.
Thanks for helping out! Without People like you i would have lost all faith in the law by now.
Question: if indeed the boilerplate language is not legal, does this mean that thousands of people have been bullied into admitting guilt for a crime which they may not have committed? Does this make the admission of guilt invalid? Perhaps after you guys win this one there would be an opportunity for a class-action style countersuit. Now THAT would be poetic justice!
"... Is not this a lamentable thing, that of the skin of an innocent lamb should be made parchment? that parchment, being scribbled o'er, should undo a man? Some say the bee stings: but I say, 'tis the bee's wax; for I did but seal once to a thing, and I was never mine own man since." -- Henry VI Part 2 -- Act IV, Scene IIApropos of nothing: a little legal philosophy from the Bard, though the preceding line in the play gets all the press.Thanks for doing what Olde Bill may have called A Goode Thing done for the Right Reasons.
Thank you thank you thank you! You are doing great work.
Yes I do think thousands of people have been bullied into submission.
