What do I know about being a lawyer? Nothing really, It just kind of came to me when I thought about something. I feel that there are certain instances where a person needs to think about all sides of a story or argument without wanting to cut corners just to get rid of the problem. They have to think about the origin and the trigger of the problem and what would have happened if there was no trigger. It just seems like common sense to me and then you to ask yourself: "What if you had left the person alone to calm down instead of constantly engaging and angering them to the point where stupid things are said or done?". Adults are responsible for their actions and should be held accountable for them, yes but every person has their limits.
When pushed past that limit could you still hold them accountable? Is the instigator not guilty in this as well? Am I making any sense? Say for example you're at a bar. You're having a good time with you're friends and suddenly you get up and start to instigate. The person you are prodding with a verbal stick chooses to ignore you but that stick continues on to prod and prod. Anger then takes over and a fight ensues, ending with both parties almost killing each other. In this case, would the assailant still be held accountable for losing his temper? Would he be excused simply because he was pushed past his limit? Would it be best if both parties were punished? Would you have their punishment be on equal or different levels? And my mind just keeps on churning out more and more of these questions.
I don't know anything about being a lawyer. I refer to my own experience and how I feel I react to certain situations to where I almost feel like a lawyer that questions every little detail and aspect of a certain problem or argument; not every detail but ones that don't make sense.
Hence the term, lawyering?
I guess it's all a matter of perspective and that is as unique to a person as a finger print is.
