Ethics of shrinks and lawyers

A fellow angry dad writes:
Geez, is there no end to the evil of lawyers and psychologists? Redistribution of wealth by means other than the govt.
He sends two recent NY Times stories, Psychologist in Terror War Is Subject of Complaint and Investors Put Money on Lawsuits to Get Payouts.

The vast majority of these professional do not take part in supporting torture or anything like that. These stories do not prove that they are all bad. But they do show the limits of holding them to their professional codes of ethics. Those codes allow all sorts of bad behavior.
