Protective Slime Coating

Why don't PD's get sick? Because their immune systems have already been exposed to, and overcome, whatever nasties are floating around out there. (actually, floating around in there, in jail) You'll notice 'defense counsel' didn't show up in this news item, where court personnel were sickened by a man who "pulled out a vial of an unknown liquid, rubbed his hands with the contents and insisted on shaking hands with the three people" (Maybe the DC got a clue after the guy "rubbed his hands" with "an unknown liquid" and "insisted on shaking hands," much like not shaking hands with your clients who've been playing pocket pool)

Interestingly, there is a study that showed that passive stressful situations (like listening to the audiotape of your client failing miserably to exercise his right to STFU or reviewing gory crime scene photos) tend to suppress the immune system, while active stressful situations (like meeting deadlines or prepping for trial) tend to boost the immune system.

Clients have a right to STFU. I love it. Maybe if cops read the Miranda in that form people would be more likely to exercise their rights. Ok, maybe not...
