What motivates a lawyer to defend a Tsarnaev, a Castro or a Zimmerman?

The trauma nurses who took care of
Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev after his arrest
have a straightforward explanation.
“I don’t get to pick and choose my patients,” one told the Boston Globe.

The three public defenders assigned to Tsarnaev
would have been similarly constrained.
But what about the two prominent defense lawyers who have offered their services?
Why choose to represent a man accused of
turning the Boston Marathon finish line into a war zone?

Likewise, how can the lawyers representing Cleveland’s Ariel Castro fight
for a man who pleaded guilty on Friday to 937 counts related to
the kidnapping, imprisonment and rape of three women?
And what about the attorneys for
the recently acquitted but still controversial George Zimmerman?
Do they really believe he is completely innocent of any wrongdoing in shooting an unarmed teen?


[Obviously, some people do not agree,
but I certainly believe Zimmerman is completely innocent
in shooting the "unarmed teen" who was giving him a beating
that could easily have become fatal.
Have "unarmed teens" never committed murder?
Here's a name you don't hear much about: Brian Wonsom
Notice how the oh-so-politically-correct media doesn't talk much about him
when they ceaselessly find unarmed teen-ness so relevant to the Trayvon Martin case.

As to the comparison,
there seems very little evidence that either Tsarnaev or Castro
are innocent of the crimes of which they are accused.
There is a very much evidence that Zimmerman
is innocent of the crimes of which he was accused,
so much so that a jury of six people found him innocent.
Most importantly, neither the victims of Tsarnaev nor Castro
had physically harmed them
before they committed the acts of which they stand accused
(and are almost surely guilty of),
while Trayvon Martin provably physically harmed George Zimmerman
before Zimmerman shot him.

How on earth can this law professor and the Post make this comparison?]
