Professional courtesy

Yes sir, the new generation simply has no respect. Once upon a time, an attorney could swim and surf safely in Florida waters, but no more. These young sharks today don't care who they go after.

29-year-old assistant Palm Beach County state attorney
Adam McMichael was surfing off Hutchinson Island Sunday when a shark chomped down on his arm and dragged him under the water, which in my opinion constitutes prima facie evidence of mens rea.

Choosing a quick punch in the gills over a formal writ of Replevin, McMichael managed to regain his property, to wit - his arm and though seriously wounded, he was rescued by another surfer.
In my day this never would have happened. Professional courtesy would have been respected. I blame it on Rap music.
