Irony so thick.....

To follow up on the press release on the Lebanon County DA's race, there are two points about this situation that are filled with irony.

First, at the same time that Mr. Arnold is advocating for an increase in capital prosecutions, he is illustrating one of the major problems with the death penalty- ineffective assistance of counsel. Mr. Deitzler is too poor to afford his own attorney, and one of the attorneys appointed to him is publicly bad-mouthing him.

Second, did you ever think you would see the day when an anti-dp organization defends an incumbent District Attorney and blasts a public defender? (Mr. Arnold works in the PD's office.)
