A lawyer got shot?

Who cares?
 
2008-07-03 02:20:14 PM
The shooter must've gotten a dry hand job.
 
2008-07-03 03:18:36 PM
oh, it was a lawyer. at least it wasn't a human.

Holy crap, these Hardwicks have bad luck at fast food places. His son was killed at a fast food joint robbery.

I guess Dick Cheney finally realized it's easier to find a lawyer in the big city than it is in the woods.

FYI, coffee is not $4 at starbucks. It's $2.

Espresso based drinks with steamed milk are though.

/those aren't coffee.

There's a line at an ATM. A woman starts to massage the man in front of her.
"What the hell are you doing?" he asks.
"You looked stressed and I thought I'd give you a massage
since I'm a masseuse." she says.
"Well I'm a lawyer and you don't see me f*cking the guy in
front of me do you!?!"

When I worked at Starbucks we would occasionally mix it up and call a Venti Tupac instead of a quad Venti.

Um, but not when there were too many customers around. Anyway, maybe they can name it after this guy instead.

/Triple is a JFK.

I was shocked when I read that headline subby, then I sighed in relief when I found out a lawyer got plugged.

But doesn't that make him just a little extra gangster? /gangsta
Or at least a little extra wannabe-gangster? /gangsta

He was trying to convey an image, (agree that the car is crap).

Ok, I know this isn't what the TFA is referring to but: Does anybody know what the deal is with being offered a fourth free shot in a large iced latte? They used to kick you one every now and then if they made an extra, but now it seems to be a matter of course.

Not that I'm complaining.

/Yeah, I like the occasional iced latte from Starbucks. Get over it.

Starbucks partnered with Magic Johnson to put "Starbucks" into shady areas to help gentrify, uh I mean "clean up" the neighborhood. They're not corporate Starbucks, just as the Target and most airport ones aren't corporate stores either. His name is on the company but yeah, it's a side company, not a single franchised store.

Did they include this victim's profession for any reason other than so people could make jokes about him getting shot? They didn't say what the other guy does for a living. What farking difference does his job make to the story?

No actually they are licensed stores and he is in a joint agreement (neither partner Starbucks or Johnson owns a majority) to operate what he calls Urban Coffee Opportunities so that poor people can be overcharged for coffee too.

If the Impala had at least "20 inch rims I'd say it would qualify.

raper, something not everyone hates like a lawyer.

One shot in coffee is a black eye. Two is a red eye. If you get three shots, it's a crazy eye.

Four is a fark article. :)

From my experience, about 90% of the lawyers in our system are extraneous.

Still, we don't have to actually KILL them, do we? Just shut down all the 3rd and 4th tier schools.

I'm guessing they are trying to insinuate he was shot because he was a lawyer. Maybe I'm reading way too much into it.

Whenever I see a story about a critically wounded lawyer, I always think of that one "Kingdom Hospital" episode where they wheel a personal injury lawyer having a cardiac into the ER.

Someone yells "It's a lawyer!", everyone jumps back, they bring in a video camera for documentation, and everything grinds to a near halt as they spout off stuff for the camera. "Let the record show that I will now administer 1 mL of epinephrine, from a single dose vial from Sandoz. The lot number is 2Z3354, the expiration date is 2/09. The vial is clean, without cloudiness, and appears to be unopened. I am withdrawing 1mL using a Bard 3mL syringe, lot number 2332, expiration date 3/2009. The needle is 22ga, 1.5 inches long. I shall now administer this into his left cephalic vein, in accordance with procedures approved by Kingdom Hospital on page 348 of the hospital manual, and in accordance with standard medical practice as approved by the state of Maine...."

All the time the lawyer is moaning "Help me..help me..." while everything is running at maybe 1% of normal speed due to all the ass-covering.

According to follow up news stories, he was an "ex-city attorney" who had worked for the mayor, and according to other customers, it was definitely a hit. The shooter walked up to his table, and shot him four times with such little warning that he just sat there and got shot.

Welcome to gangstaland Atlanta


"It was a targeted hit," said witness Karmen Sneed. "He walked in, aimed the gun right at the man and shot him."

Sneed said the shooter even made statements while he was shooting at Hardwick.

"It was like 'Yeah, I'm getting you, I got you,'" Sneed said.

The shooting happened just after 9 p.m. Several people were inside the Starbucks playing chess and sipping on coffee.

"That person sitting there didn't even budge. He didn't look surprised or anything. He just sat there and took it, took the bullets," said witness Scott Arnold.
