Defense attorney Victor Hodge said Ferguson's behavior might have been a ploy to make sure he was sentenced to death so he could avoid spending the rest of his life in prison.

*This* is why I despise the typical American defense lawyer.

If you forced defense attorneys to do their pro bono defense of P-O-Ss like this fellow truly pro bono, then they wouldn't do it anymore. But the Legal Services Foundation, and other state organizations, pay almost full legal rates so these d-ckhead lawyers get government subsidy to act like, speak like, and live their liberal ideals.

How'd you like to earn $150/hr to host a talk radio show? Same thing.
