not to be overlydramatic, but...
the citizen has a responsibility to see justice done.
and that is more important than any monetary cost.
understand that being charged with any offense is an accusation of guilt; an accusation only.
the accused has a right(and as i'm pretty strongly opionated about, a responsibility) to see a thorough defense.
we as a society benefit far more from this than by saving x amount of dollars simply because the justice system, and other members of society, encourage complacency on the part of the accused.
