Offering proof that some attorneys have apparently no moral compass, defense attorney Bob Dunn compares Spokane police Officer Brad Thoma’s firing for a hit-and-run DUI accident to being fired for having cancer.
Wrong, wrong, wrong. Nobody ever chooses to have cancer. Officer Thoma chose to leave the scene of an auto accident for which he was at fault. Rather than being concerned for the people he may have injured, he was concerned about saving his own neck. Thoma may be an alcoholic, but that does not excuse the purposeful act of his crime.
Mr. Dunn, understand this is exactly why so many citizens are outraged by the action of lawyers. Go take a long hard look in the mirror. Think about how you would want your own children to act and think about the responsibility we all have as citizens.
And please, never ever compare a personal choice to the contraction of a horrible disease.
