                              White Supremacist Files Malpractice Suit

Matthew_hale A white supremacist serving a 40-year prison sentence for seeking to have a federal judge murdered has filed a malpractice lawsuit against his former attorney.

A jury convicted Matthew Hale in April 2004 of soliciting his security chief, who was working as an FBI informant, to kill U.S. District Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow.

Hale alleged in a lawsuit filed Wednesday in Cook County Circuit Court that his lead defense attorney, Thomas Durkin, "committed numerous acts and omissions that fell beneath a reasonable standard of care."

He is seeking $30 million in damages, according to the lawsuit.

Durkin told the Chicago Tribune that he had not yet seen the lawsuit.

"I don't believe it's worthy of a comment," he said. "I don't intend to dignify it."

           White Supremacist Files Malpractice Suit

CHICAGO - A white supremacist serving a 40-year prison sentence for seeking to have a federal judge murdered has filed a malpractice lawsuit against his former attorney.

A jury convicted Matthew Hale in April 2004 of soliciting his security chief, who was working as an FBI informant, to kill U.S. District Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow.

Hale alleged in a lawsuit filed Wednesday in Cook County Circuit Court that his lead defense attorney, Thomas Durkin, "committed numerous acts and omissions that fell beneath a reasonable standard of care."

He is seeking $30 million in damages, according to the lawsuit.

Durkin told the Chicago Tribune that he had not yet seen the lawsuit.

"I don't believe it's worthy of a comment," he said. "I don't intend to dignify it."

Hale alleges in the lawsuit that Durkin charged Hale's father legal fees for services that never were performed. He also claims that Durkin improperly excluded white jurors and worked to get blacks on the jury, which worked against his case.

The jury was made up of six blacks, five whites and a Hispanic.

Prosecutors said Hale was angry at Lefkow because of a ruling she made against his white supremacist organization.

In 2002, she ordered Hale's group to stop using the name World Church of the Creator because the words were trademarked by a religious group. The judge never was attacked.

Her husband and mother were killed in her home the following year by a man who had no relation to the Hale case.  Link

I wonder if this guy is a breeder. I hope not.

I Googled Matthew Hale and found this article from the ADL right at the top.

As I read through it, my thoughts were, "This man is repulsive... thank God that idiots like this are out there on the fringe."

Then I read the last paragraph of the article...

"...it is my unshakable determination that through my efforts and through the efforts of you, my Brothers and Sisters, that we will indeed completely and everlastingly win this Racial Holy War. RAHOWA!"

Racial Holy War - RAHOWA. Wow, that really made the light bulb come on for me.

Multiply this guy by a million and that'll give you an idea of what we're dealing with in the middle-east. Different races, different religions, but a Jihad Holy War for supremacy nonetheless.

And THAT'S a sobering thought...

It is a sobering thought. More sobering to me is that we are not fighting a war with people over land, or the desire to conquer another people for settlements. We are fighting a religious ideology that makes no sense but makes enough sense to billions that many of the believers would willingly and gladly strap on a bomb vest to blow themselves up with as many civilians as possible to spread that ideology.

It doesn't compute. It so flies in the face of reason that it is almost incomprehensible to those capable of rational thought.

A god to whom almost one-half of the world's population bows down five times a day to worship dictates that wiping an entire race off the planet is a good thing.

And people whine that we should remove our presence from the Levant. Yeah....
