The story tells us he is bipolor, off his meds, and he "... has had seven
run-ins with the law the past 14 months.And the headline is that he
is a distinguised lawyer?Maybe from a "distinguished"
lawyer, such behavior is expected or at least excusable, but anyone else would
not get away with it. And, being a lawyer is totally irrelevant.It
would be almost as relevant if he were characterized as "Carrot eater
charged" since he probably eats carrots sometimes.And, why
after 7 run ins with the law in the last 14 months is he still loose in society,
law degree or not?
just because hes a lawyer means nothing to me whatsoever if that would of been
someone else they would of been arrested and hauled off to jail and locked up as
far as Im concerned hes right where he belongs ( in jail ) and Im sure glad hes
not my lawyer ! and as far as the term " distinguished gentleman " I
dont think so
The 'distinguished' gentleman is a obviously not distinguished, and not a
gentleman. Other than that, he "is". Laywer or not, his behaviour
needs some major polishing.
It seems to me that this guy is suffering from some kind of mental affliction,
perhaps the onset of dementia. If he's attempted, or even threatened, suicide,
that's certainly a mental health issue. If he does go to prison, I hope he gets
the mental health treatment he needs there.
Oh, he's probably a very nice guy, if you live long enough to get to know
him.Seriously though, did he ever play with his kids. I
saw a guy on a plane recently who got onto the plane late, couldn't find a place
for his carry-on bag, and so he took someone's bag out of the overhead without
asking anyone, and just put his bag in it's place in the overhead and left the
other bag in the aisle. When the owner of the bag complained to him, the man
started cussing and swearing back at him and begging for a fight. He then took
his seat swearing and complaining to those next to hm, including my brother. The
stewardess saw this and came up and was very nice to him, but explained that
unless he was willing to settle down he was not welcome on the flight. He swore
some more, but finally apologized, sort of. She helped find a place for all the
bags.Courtesy is needed in a world where we have to live with
others. And yes, we have to live with others. It is good for us.
