This lawyer La Pinta, wasn't he the one whose mother was released from prison a year or so ago? He seems to be anxious to represent some God awful looking slugs.

I really wish they would give a few more details on how they caught these people. Why would they meet in such a public place? There's more to this story. Neighbor is a dirt bag, he knew the attorney had four kids. Hang him all.

First off, I have no respect for ambulance chasing attorneys, and it certainly appears the victim was one. Why would a qualified and ethical attorney have anything to do with the scum that was his business associate? The guy frequents sleazy strip joints, and the victim meets in a parking lot with the promise of business?

Sorry, but if you sleep, do business or hang out with bad people, you are going to get hurt. The victim clearly was naive, possibly a desperate moron to do business with this low-life. Most people with half a brain would never get involved with people like that. Sorry if the truth hurts, but the victim is partially to blame.

It's a shame he was killed but it was due to HIS own greed.
His Partner (Armand Assante) knew how to push the button. He dangled the carrot of ill gotten gains and the Lawyer jumped for it. Alas, it cost him his life.
