That's actually the attitude of the best lawyers we have.  David Lane of Denver is a good example.

Too much to chaw on here. For one thing, that dumb motherfarker's face is mangled because he spent too many Saturday afternoons watching college football while scarfing down large doses of pork rind. This describes about half the Fark readership. Don't feel so smug.

Secondly, if your free world lawyer didn't keep you out of jail you can't possibly do any worse than a certified paralegal in the cell next to you. He doesn't charge much more than a few bags of Top Ramen and an occasion blow job, and he can damn well empathize with your plight. You probably can't find better value any other way.

Also, WTF happened to Tina Fey's face. Nobody gave her shiat for a deformity.

I guess someone with with personal experience with firearms law violations, resisting arrest, etcetera http://caselaw.findlaw.com/ri-supreme-court/1001247.html might be of assistance to Bundy.  I didn't realize convicted felons could become lawyers.

If he had that attitude he would have a long history of defending people who had been beaten by the police, had property seized because the police said so, locked up for days or weeks on bogus charges because they couldn't afford bail etc etc.

But then most of these people are not white

"The judge reminded Bundy he was considered an indigent defendant, and as such, does not have "a right to counsel of your choice.'' "

How does this happen? The guy has a home and a business, he and his brother and dad have contributions pouring in from nutballs just mesmerized with them, but he's indigent?

2014 article

"2012, he ran for Montana Secretary of State, managing only 3.5 percent of the vote. But Roots himself has little legislative experience. He has worked as a lawyer largely appealing lower court ruling. Roots is currently working as an assistant professor of criminology at sociology at Jarvis Christian College in Hawkins, Texas. He's taken a short leave of absence to campaign in Montana . When Roots talks about the racial and ethnic views that have caused him trouble in the past, he admits that he was a bit of a "lost soul in my youth." It is a time that has haunted him. "I used to be an extreme right winger, and I used to read the writings of Adolf Hitler and all kinds of racist materials," Roots said. His anti - Semitic views cost him a teaching position at Marcon College in Georgia in 2004. But it was a book, "The Ultimate Resource 2" that argued natural resources were essentially limitless, that he said inspire d him to look towards libertarianism."

Yeah, those views caused him trouble in the past. Nobody else, just him.

Tina Fey is, by all accounts, an empathetic and savvy person. Most people find her funny too.

Ryan Bundy held a bird sanctuary hostage and forgot to bring snacks.

It's not the deformity we're making fun of. It's the tragicomic combination of unusually dumb with unusual condition ;/

The larger an asshole you are, the more things become fair game to use against you. It'd be one thing if he had his face damaged but went on to not take over a wildlife ranch while threatening the locals and federal officers along with a litany of other dumbassed behaviors, but, well, he did do that.
