Note to Client: Keep Your Tongue in Your Mouth

I wish I had a dime foir every time I have thought “I wish he didn’t say [or do] that.” If I had been the defense lawyer, Ronnell Wilson’s gesture of sticking out his tongue on hearing a federal jury’s decision to sentence him to death would have been one of those times. Now, I understand, to some extent, the frustration and fear that motivates these things. I also understand how much of a long shot death penalty appeals are in this day and age. But why do something that will necessarily brand you in the minds of the public, and not in a positive way?
