So Mr. Genis tells the Dies supporters that they are "all on the same team" while at the same time doing all he can do to try to get his client off the hook.

"All on the same team." Yeah, riiight. This is total nonsense, and I hope no one is buying it.

"Reanimate" is a strange choice of words, too. It suggests to me that Genis really doesn't believe what he told the Dies supporters.

I understand that Genis has a job to do but at the same time trying to curry favor with supporters of the family of his client's victim strikes me as disingenuous and twisted. Mr. Genis evidently wants it both ways, and that just isn't possible.

Interesting and telling that just over half of the SBSO people listed as supporters on Sheriff Brown's website are also listed as retired and thus won't be working for him...

The State Bar may indeed be self-serving hacks, but it does still have the power to take DG's license to practice law away from him, bimboteskie. I think DG should keep this in mind. He does not operate in a vacuum. Just my opinion; your mileage may vary.

I'm sure DG will appeal this ruling, and perhaps he or his attorney will find a way to beat it.

I find it telling that the panel remarked on DG's "lack of insight" into his own behavior, and I'm not surprised that DG's response was to accuse the panel of ineptitude and corruption.

Of course defense attorneys must zealously defend their clients, but IMO DG doesn't seem to understand that there are rules for how to act within the framework he works in. These rules are meant to be taken seriously, and most lawyers I've seen know how to behave.

The State Bar has the power to take DG's license to practice law away from him if he doesn't follow the rules. I wonder if his lack of insight will prevent him from seeing/understanding this before even more disciplinary action will be taken against him.

This is too f****ed-up for me to even think about.

$700,000 pissed away on psychic readings and whatnot does suggest a serious crime, thus state prison seems more than appropriate for what the defendant did.

Well, even though I'm reasonably well-educated, loonpt, I do admit to having trouble following your lines of reasoning from time to time. And I certainly don't agree with your definition of what makes a law legitimate or not, but it's good to know how you feel about these things for my future edification on these comment boards...

On Jail Food Deemed Decent Enough

loonpt, are you advocating for "happy meals" for those who are in jail for breaking laws you don't agree with, and "crappy meals" for those who are in jail for laws you happen to agree with? Your logic escapes me.
