Okay, La, here it is, Public Defender Stuart Weg was trying to tell a New Orleans Judge that the guy New Orleans cops had in custody was the wrong person. The Judge, Benedict Willard got annoyed with the lawyer and had his courtroom deputies forcibly remove the lawyer from his courtroom. In the process the deputies smacked the lawyer once or twice leaving a few bruises. All I can say, is Public Defender Weg, stop your whining--wait until the bastards pepper spray you, incarcerate you, and prosecute you for felonious assault on them, then you have my permission to come cry. In th meantime, good work--you are well on your way to becoming a bad lawyer.
Let's face it, most of us Bad Lawyers need a smack now and then.
