Michael Cohen and The Fragile Fifth by Simple Justice

Fantastic blog post on the “Fragile Fifth” by Simple Justice.

When we argue that the rigor of our constitutional rights is tested by whether we provide them to the most hated among us, it’s usually some particularly nefarious criminal, a mass murderer for example. And yet, the righteous can see beyond the horrors of this murderer’s crimes to stand firm for our constitutional rights. We take some pride in rising above the outrage of the crime, knowing that we are better, more principled, than the petty, vindictive mob.
