A Lawyer Describes Roy Cohn And The Nature Of Evil

"Evil can be cool, particularly when it marshals itself, when it's vital interests are at stake."

"You saw Roy Cohn testify, you saw that face, star of the magazine covers. I suggest to you that when you looked at that face, you were looking at the face of very real evil.

"Evil can be charming. If evil always came in a disgusting guise it would easy to recognize, it wouldn't be a much of a threat, would it? Evil can be witty, nothing saying that evil people are dumb. Evil can be cool, particularly when it marshals itself, when it's vital interests are at stake. The face of evil can be quick and sharp, and can be smarter than any lawyer Richard Dupont can get.

"But the face of evil is a face of... evil."

- John Klotz, Esq.
