It may be worthwhile remembering than none other than John Adams, Quincy native, author of the Massachusetts constitution, father of a president (JQAdams), and, of course, 2nd president, was the lawyer for the British soldiers involved in the “Boston Massacre” of 1770. No one else would take the case he was told. His feeling, of course, was that everyone deserved a sprited defense regardless of the unpopularity of the crime and the potential damage to his hard won reputation. He was only 34.
