Some lawers are jerks…

It will be interesting to see what comes of this. Take a look at Blackfive’s post… it is amazing, the lawyer is a jerk and while he criticizes the Marine for “doing what he will” … he is practicing exactly that as a lawyer.
Anti-Military Lawyer Damages Marine’s Car on Eve of Deployment
While saying goodbye, at about 11am, he noticed a man leaning up against his car. Mike left his friend’s apartment and caught the man keying his car on multiple sides.
After caught in the process, the man told Mike, “you think you can do whatever you want with Department of Defense license plates and tags”. (In Illinois you can purchase veteran, Marine, or medal plates. Mike has Illinois Marine Corps license plates.) During the exchange, he made additional anti-military comments.
Mike called the Chicago police and had the man arrested. A citation against the man was issued for misdemeanor criminal damage to private property.
Update 12-31-07: The hearing is today. After about four hundred emails offering help, I’ve taken down the email address for now. If I haven’t sent you a reply, I apologize and hopefully will send one soon.
