The New Yorker On The Murdaugh Murders

The New Yorker had an interesting article titled, " The Corrupt World Behind the Murdaugh Murders." Alex Murdaugh was recently convicted for the murder of his wife and son. The amazing thing to me is just how long a so-called prestigious family legal dynasty could operate so corruptly.  

How did they get away with it? Well, first and foremost they were lawyers. I know what it is like to be threatened by a lawyer for speaking the truth. (which is why I do not use my real name on this site) Apparently it takes a horrendous murder or two before anyone notices just what a crook you are if you are a wealthy lawyer. 

Yes, there are good lawyers but even the good ones share at least some blame for turning a blind eye to the crimes and misdeeds of the bad ones. Their own legal code of ethics states they must report violations of the code but this almost never happens.
