Best jury duty ever! [Oct. 7th, 2005|10:17 pm]

Murderous gang of 400-pound armed Samoans on the loose in King County!

Seriously guys, it's time to panic, since there may be as many as
30 of them AND they hang out with two whites, a couple of blacks, one Native American and, a "transgendered individual", so no one is safe. Especially not your parents.

I know the Darwin Awards doesn't yet have a category for "Someone who deserves to go to prison, whether guilty or not, for having such a profoundly misinformed view of the American court system and the value of Public Defenders, most likely gained from watching too much TV", but I think we have a strong contender for a lifetime achivement in Mr. Phadnis.

I smell an "incompetent counsel" appeal in the years to come.

I can't believe he was declared competent. He's clearly a few Froot Loops short of a box.

I can't believe anyone with no legal background ever gets declared competent to defend themselves, since it seems automatically delusional to think you the non-attorney would be better than even the worst Public Defender.

The thing that pisses me off is you just know there will be a retrial/appeal because he's obviously NOT competent, which is just a waste of time and tax money. They could have saved a bunch of aggravation if someone could have found a legal way to compel him to not act as his own attorney and given him a decent defense in the first place.

As your attorney, I advise you to blame a transexual,a Native American, two whites, and a couple of blacks.

In the appeal, he'll ask for mercy because he's an orphan.
