WIRTW #323 (the "why I hate lawyers" edition)

YouTube is filled with examples of lawyers behaving badly. Yet, this example from Above the Law, entitled, “Pro Tip For Lawyers: Don’t Threaten To ‘Anally Rape’ Adversary,” takes the cake. Here’s a small taste:

You pissed off the wrong attorney. You want to beat up women and then play games with the legal system… well then you will get exactly what you deserve. After I get [my client] out of jail I’m going to gather all the relevant evidence and them I’m going to anal rape you so hard your teeth come loose. I tried working with you with respect. Now I’m going to treat you like the pond scum you are. Watch your ass you little [expletive deleted]. I’ve got you in my sights now.

The most astounding part? The lawyer posted this threat on Facebook. Good grief.
