Kansas Public Defenders Are Quitters?!?

One In Four Kansas Public Defenders Quit Last Year, Leaving Agency 'In Crisis'

Ruslan Ivanov loved being a public defender. What he didn't love was the way his work constantly followed him - at home, with friends and family, even on vacation. On one trip to Colorado, he stood in front of a breathtaking mountain view. And started thinking about a case.

There should be more PD's and they should be paid better.

Can you blame them for quitting?

Many of the public defenders are given the job of trying to get violent and 100% guilty people off the hook, to walk free. Usually when people are charged, its for a reason, and they have done something wrong. Who wants to defend a criminal who might mug your wife once he is released? (there are some innocent people too)
