Folks like Crump

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjamin_Crump

This guy was deep in the Trayvon case and it seemed like he made some poor decisions in that situation. Decisions which raised tensions but weakened the overall case against Zimmerman.

Now he has showed up again with the Michael Brown case. And he's parading the witnesses on TV, allowing them to give interviews again and again. Any variance between the witness accounts will be exploited by Wilson's defense attorneys.

So, why is Crump doing this? Why is he deliberately undermining the case against Wilson?

It seems to me that someone who makes their living on the back of racial tension, and then who seems act against the interests of his clients to increase that tension, should NOT be trusted.

1. I'd trust him more than you...

 

Just saying...

Oh, and a better link for those not too lazy to post from their iPhone:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjamin_Crump

And the OP's commentary is not to be found in the link, for those who thought he was quoting text from the link...

2. "makes their living on the back of racial tension"

hmmm... that's quite the statement, transparent one might say, and a glimpse into a thought process that many, like me, find offensive.

4. If he seemed to have his client's interests in mind, I would have no problem with him

 

But he seems to deliberately sabotage their cases.

3. This the kind of OP that makes you wonder....

 

Is it worth a hide to tell the poster just what you think of them?

12. Yeah

 

We've seen him wandering the dark alleys for sometime looking for, well, whatever it is he's looking for. Really, i have some measure of pity for the soul. I bet he's really pissed people are protesting and that cop that got relieved of duty is no longer around to threaten the protestors.
