I have heard the ignorance of the law thing and used to believe it. However, after looking at the volumes (enough to cover a wall) of law books I realized that there is now way in heck that anyone could possibly know all of the laws. Combustion that with the fact that lawyers devote their lives to knowing the law and anyone with a lick of common sense has to question that notion.
Maybe we should have more emphasis on Civic in school rather than Spanish or liberal arts. Sounds like an education problem, either way refer to my first reply in this post.
Hhhmmm....... please see first response in this post. To paraphrase, ignorance of the law shall not be an affirmative defense. Too repetitive?
Have a good day, GOOD SAINTS!
