Why Attorneys Should Stay Off Facebook? It’s AR Style

Read the story below, and for those that think, you will see what this guy has done is no different than how ARs characterize breeders, sellers of animals, etc. All breeders are bad, all sellers should be in jail, and no one should be able to buy an animal unless it was “rescued” “rehomed” or from shelters.  Lord, have mercy.

“Reason enough why no country should ever engage in the practice of Affirmative Action again,” read the caption above a picture of Sotomayor posted to Lewis’ account.

Prosecutor’s Facebook page mocks ‘crack hoes’ and Sotomayor ‘quota lottery’

Updated: A Florida prosecutor whose Facebook page offered advice for “crack hoes” appears unapologetic amidst the controversy.

Assistant State Attorney Kenneth Lewis is under fire for several Facebook comments, including this Mother’s Day post: “Happy Mother’s Day to all the crack hoes out there. It’s never too late to tie your tubes, clean up your life and make difference to someone out there that deserves a better mother.”

Lewis told a WFTV reporter he was too busy trying cases to agree to an interview, but he did confirm he wrote the post. “It’s an inspirational message to do the right thing,” Lewis said.

WKMG highlights other posts on Lewis’ Facebook page. In one, a photo of Justice Sonia Sotomayor is posted. Underneath, the Facebook page reads: “Reason enough why no country should ever engage in the practice of Affirmative Action again. This could be the result. Where would she be if she didn’t hit the quota lottery? Here’s a hint: ‘Would you like to supersize that sir?’ ”

Another post underneath a news article about an arrest for home invasion says, “They should have shot him in the head, anyone that invades another home in a violent manner should be executed on the spot.” Yet another post complains that Florida is subject to a “constant flooding of the lowest common denominator from third world nations.”

Orange-Osceola State Attorney Jeff Ashton released this statement to the broadcast stations: “I have been made aware of certain statements attributed to Assistant State Attorney Kenneth Lewis on social media. I do not agree with the political sentiments expressed by him and I find some of the words he chose to be both offensive and dehumanizing. Political speech is protected by the first amendment of the United States Constitution and I do not police the private thoughts, views or expressions of those in my employ.”

The ABA Journal sent Lewis an email request asking if he would like to comment on the controversy over his Facebook page. His email reply: “What specific controversy are you referring to?” The ABA Journal provided more specifics, and Lewis didn’t immediately reply.

At a news conference on Thursday, Lewis apologized for the “crack hoes” comment, report the Associated Press and WFTV. “I used a poor choice of words in using the term ‘crack hoe’ instead of ‘drug addict,’ ” Lewis said. “To those I unintentionally offended, I offer you my deepest apologies. I regret it was misinterpreted by some.”

He also apologized for the Sotomayor comment.

“I use hyperbole, sensationalism to get reaction from people to start discussing,” Lewis said. He said he is able to be a fair and impartial prosecutor.

“I have always been 100 percent fair, and I challenge any of you to talk to any attorneys that I’ve tried cases against, to talk to any of the judges I’ve appeared before, and to talk to any of the victims and the victims’ families that I’ve worked for in upholding justice,” Lewis said. “My record speaks for itself.”

Updated May 23 to include press conference coverage.

—————————————-PD…..Our take is that the guy is either really an idiot but a prosecutor, dislikes minorities and alleged criminals, and wants to speed up the system by killing some people [in theory-opinion] who appear guilty, like home invasion crimes? Now we can understand as defense attorneys, that he is probably NOT the only prosecutor, police, or wanna-b-cop person in the world, that thinks like this.

IN FACT nearly ALL AR activists think like this, use Facebook incessantly, and even have seminars on how to do so. The 2%  (loud ARs)that want to rule the animals and the humans they hate.

Certainly the ARs are overly zealous, overly emotional, and overly rabid. That is how a job gets done apparently,

because we have been trying to tell people for

almost 20 years, but we can’t come close to the

AR bankroll pushed by the dumbed down donators.

Tell your friends. HSUS/ASPCA+cronies have paid  

combined estimate $9.5million,

PLUS $15.75million to “settle” civil RICO charges.

One would think that criminal RICO should be used, we didn’t want to look at the sordid 14 year litigation against the circus in detail.  We saw enough.

May 22, 2014 9:36 AM CDTAs long as there is no evidence that his views are interfering with the performance of his job there is nothing further to do.  His opinions, especially his comments concerning Justice Sotomayor, are ignorant and misguided.  However, ignorance in one’s personal life is not a fireable offense.

May 22, 2014 9:59 AM CDTHis spelling is atrocious. The plural of “crack ho” is “crack hos”. He’s not referring to a garden tool.

May 22, 2014 10:00 AM CDT@1 – I agree with you with respect to most of the statements, but that one quote urging that “anyone that invades another home in a violent manner should be executed on the spot” does sort of call into question his impartiality as a prosecutor.

May 22, 2014 10:01 AM CDT@2 – Wine_Country_Dude – Are you sure about that? I thought “ho” follows the potato rule when plural.

May 22, 2014 10:02 AM CDT@3:  Yeah, that’s actually a good point.  I could see the argument on whether his judgment should be questioned going either way on that statement.

By noon it will be all over the world via social media.

May 22, 2014 12:15 PM CDTLewis is right about scumbags invading Florida and he is their leader. Amazing racist sexist inference about sotomayer. Good thing he is only a scumbag DA and not a NBA owner.  Affecting his job. Hmmmm his job is to seek justice.  Yeah I see it these comments are all about justice lol. And what a moronic response “what controversy”. That is so pathetically stupid on so many levels
