Lawyers are bad. The worst of the lawyers are prosecutors, district attorneys. These are truly foul human beings. The worst one I ever met was a slug named Richard Guida. It made my skin crawl to be in the same room with him.
Recently Mark Pazuhanich came to light. Mark Pazuhanich was the district attorney of rural Monroe County in East Central Pennsylvania. The district attorney got himself elected judge. Who could doubt that he was a fine lawyer, husband and father, exactly the kind of Republican Stroudsburg deserves as a judge?
District Attorney Mark Pazuhanich took his 10 year-old daughter to a teenage concert in Wilkes-Barre in Northeastern Pennsylvania. A security guard couldn’t help but notice his behavior with his little girl. He semed unnaturally friendly.
Judge-elect Mark Pazuhanich has been charged with indecent assault, corruption of the morals of a minor, endangering the welfare of a child and public drunkenness by his fellow district attorney in Luzerne County.
Mark Pazuhanich seems to have let his fingers do a little too much walking. Even a district attorney should learn to keep those fingers away from 10 year-old daughters. Think he’ll do a day in prison for it?
On the evening of November 6, 1963, future First Lady of the United States Laura Bush née Welch was driving with a friend on a rural highway in Midland, Texas when she ran a stop sign and broadsided another car. The driver of the other vehicle, 17-year-old Michael Dutton Douglas, a classmate and friend of Welch’s, was killed. Welch, who wasn’t reported to be drinking or speeding, wasn’t charged and received only minor injuries.

Amazed the Laura Bush story got in. Usually it is quickly censored.
It’s important to note the boy was her exboyfriend who just dumped her and the cross road was unobstructed in the desert (so anyone could see the other car coming for miles) and her boyfriends car which she knew well was distinctive at night becuase of its headlights.
Also no drunk test was given becuase she was the daughter of prominent townperson. A person who attended high school with them Robert E. Lee High School in Midland, Texas (one year ahead of First Lady Laura Bush) and who knew details about them General Tommy Franks was appointed gulf war commander by Laura’s husband – some say as payoff for his continued silence.
On July 11, 1936, eccentric billionaire-to-be Howard Hughes — then a successful movie producer — struck and killed a pedestrian named Gabriel Meyer at an intersection in Los Angeles. Although Hughes had been drinking earlier that evening, he wasn’t reported to be drunk at the time and claimed that the man stepped in front of his car. While a witness initially refuted that story, the witness eventually corroborated Hughes’ version of things (some claim he was bribed), and negligent homicide charges were dropped. Nevertheless, Hughes paid the Meyer family $20,000 “in this their time of need.”
On the night of July 18, 1969, Senator Ted Kennedy left a party on Chappaquiddick Island, Massachusetts with 28-year-old Mary Jo Kopechne. During the drive, Kennedy took a wrong turn down a dirt road and drove off the Dike Bridge, his car coming to rest upside-down in the water. While Kennedy swam to safety, Kopechne never emerged from the car. The senator, however, didn’t notify police, and when the body was found the next morning, he turned himself in, claiming that he’d been in shock. Kennedy later pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident, but no other charges were filed. He received a two-month suspended jail sentence, and his driver’s license was suspended for over a year. The scandal surrounding not only the accident but also the fact that the married Kennedy was alone at night with a young woman effectively ended his aspirations of running for President.
On August 5, 1987, actor Matthew Broderick was driving on a country road in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland with then-girlfriend (and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off co-star) Jennifer Grey when his car veered into the wrong lane, colliding with an oncoming vehicle. The two passengers of the other car — 30-year-old Anna Gallagher and her 63-year-old mother Margaret Doherty — were killed instantly. Broderick spent a month in the hospital but because of memory loss, he was unable to explain what happened. It was determined that the actor wasn’t drunk at the time of the accident, and he was charged with causing death by dangerous driving, although he was eventually convicted only of careless driving, escaping with a $175 fine. Initially upset at the ruling, the victims’ family has since come to terms with it and met with Brodderick in 2003 to gain a sense of closure.
Flamboyant future boxing promoter Don King killed not one, but two men early in his life while running an illegal gambling operation in Cleveland, Ohio. In 1954, at the age of 23, he shot and killed a man named Hillary Brown, a death that was ruled justifiable because Brown was trying to rob one of King’s gambling stations. Later, in 1966, he was involved in a fight with an employee of his named Sam Garrett, whom King claimed owed him money. During the scuffle, Garrett’s head hit the pavement — although some say King repeatedly stomped him to death. He was convicted of manslaughter and spent four years in jail before being paroled in 1971, at which point he moved from gambling to boxing. King was eventually granted a full pardon by Ohio Governor James Rhodes in 1983.
