I can certainly see why. I hope they lock those kids up and throw away the key. Also, "glad of the attention???" Al Lawyer said this in regards to a rape case?!! That borders on the obscene.

At least let them be found guilty of the crimes they are accused of before you talk about throwing away any keys.

Entirely true. I should have said "if they are found guilty, I hope they are locked up and keys lost"

I hope they lock the lawyer up and throw away the key. Is being an unprofessional, misogynistic, image-obsessed twat a crime in Britain? It certainly should be.

I'm not so much angry as somewhat disgusted. Living in Tucson, I saw this sort of predatory lending a lot. It's unsavory that businesses do it, depressing that low-income folks are not generally fiscally savvy enough to know better, and criminal in the (relatively few) cases where the lack of alternatives leaves little choice.

The only part that actually made me angry was one of the loan conditions more often faced by low-income borrowers than high-income borrowers: early-payment penalties. That's a bunch of crap.
