More Defense Lawyer Bashing -- By Defense Lawyers

I've always remembered this picture because it seemed like a bit of grandstanding. That's Guy James Gray who was the DA in charge of prosecuting the guys that drug James Byrd, Jr. to death behind a pickup truck in Jasper, Texas in 1998. That's the chain they used. (On second thought, maybe it was the bolo tie and belt buckle that burnt the photo into my brain.) And I always remembered the name as well. "Guy James Gray." That's just cool. And I immediately recognized it last week when he was defending the Waco pastor ultimately convicted of murdering his wife and sentenced to 65 years. (Gray had left the DA's office years ago.) But I was a little disturbed by his comments after the trial. Now someone else chimes in today with similar thoughts. Some prosecutors will always be prosecutors.

I reiterate what I have said before on this blog, defense attorneys all suck, especially one's who were previously prosecutors.

At least this guy was being honest about the fact his client was a dirt bag liar.

Prosecutors help lock up the scumbag class. Defense lawyers ..being part of the scumbag class try to make sure that guy who robbed your neighbor gets an opportunity to rob you too.

I know we all like to make these "all lawyers are scumbags" statements. It's fun, but it probably doesn't hurt their feelings any.

Even though I want the criminals off the streets, this "defense" attorney should keep his mouth shut. Is he trying to get the case thrown out on appeal? If that happens, he should face the possibility of losing his license to practice law.
