Why People Don't Like Lawyers

While debating "Jessica's Law" in Massachusetts, a lawyer-legislator (and Democrat) remarked that he'd:

“rip apart” 6-year-old victims on the witness stand and “make sure the rest of their life is ruined.”

In a fiery soliloquy on the House floor, Fagan said he’d grill victims so that, “when they’re 8 years old they throw up; when they’re 12 years old, they won’t sleep; when they’re 19 years old, they’ll have nightmares and they’ll never have a relationship with anybody.”

Nice of him to tell us about lawyering techniques, no?
