THREAD: Watching lawyers interpret #EpsteinSuicide reflects how our legal institutions (the academy, the bar, the courts) instruct lawyers to TRUST THE SYSTEM. Coequally, we are taught to distrust "conspiracy theories," unless vetted & validated by institutional actors. 1/3
The bar & courts effectively enforce this TRUST THE SYSTEM frame-of-view by often making it unprofessional, unethical, and even risking our law license, if we voice certain criticisms of judges, prosecutors & lawyers. This enables corruption more than it enshrines integrity. 2/3
I learned very early on as a lawyer that a TRUST THE SYSTEM narrative fails the @ScottAdamsSays test: it fails to foresee what will happen. I realized a skeptical, distrustful point of view of those in power proved far more prescient in protecting my clients' self-interest. 3/3
