You realize there is no corroborating evidence that any cults existed in north America that engaged in the practices these drug addicts were describing to you. There is child sexual abuse, and some people use religion as smoke screen for it but the ritual abuse you are describing has never been shown to exist.

You should be more skeptical.

I was 14 years old volunteering my time at a youth recovery center, these girls sounded believable as hell and at at the time they really looked like they had been through what they said they went through. Maybe I am/was a gullible sap and these were just two fucked up junkie teenagers who knows for sure.

If this dummy was worried about the girl's safety why did he not call the Police? Let’s be fair, if the bar didn't think that kidnapping showed a lack of good character then surly the fact that no one called the Police would show that he had lacked the common sense and good judgment to be a lawyer?

As PPSC Lawyer said, Lawyers are not on trial. However I believe that most people would like to think that members of the judicial system would be beyond reproach. Or, at the very least not have admittedly been guilty of a very serious crime; one which is probably worse then what most of his clients will have been accused from.

If we can’t have confidence in the people who operate within our courts how can we have confidence in our courts?

I donno about you, but my confidence in the court system is already less than zero.

Can't remember if I posted this back in the summer or not.

http://www.ctvbc.ctv.ca/servlet/an/loca ... lumbiaHome

A West Vancouver man who stabbed his friend to death is returning to law school at the University of B.C. after serving just a little more than two years in prison.
Sasan Ansari was convicted in the 2006 killing of Josh Goos, a friend that he admitted to stabbing more than 30 times outside the posh Hollyburn Country Club.


Doesn't mean he'll get to practice law in BC (or the rest of Canada, hopefully) but just the fact those hippie fucks at UBC let him back in disgusts me. UBC should have any and all public funds revoked and taken away.
