Jay Grodner, the Chicago lawyer who keyed a Marine's car in anger because the car had military plates and a Marine insignia, finally got his day in court last week.Grodner pleaded guilty in a Chicago courtroom packed with former Marines. Some had Marine pins on their coats, or baseball jackets with the Marine insignia. They didn't yellor call him names. They came to support Marine Sgt. Michael McNulty, whose car Grodner defaced in December, but who couldn't attend because he's preparing for his second tour in Iraq.
Grodner was late to court for the second time in the case. Grodner called Assistant State's Attorney Patrick Kelly, (Marine Corps/Vietnam 1969-1972), informing Kelly that he would be late to court.
"He wanted to avoid the media," Kelly said Friday. "So he's coming a half hour late."
Of course that wasn't going to fly with Judge William O'Malley who...surprise!:
...served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1961-1964.
"I don't run my courtroom that way!" responded Judge O'Malley, ordering Grodner be arrested and held on $20,000 bail when he arrived.
Finally, Grodner strolled in. A short man, wide, wearing a black fedora, dark glasses, a divorce lawyer dressed like some tough guy in the movies.
Grodner told me he'd describe himself as a "radical liberal" who's ready to leave Chicago now with all this negative publicity and move to the south of France and do some traveling.
France would be a great place for a dickhead like Grodner. Not to wish ill will on anyone (well,actually...yeah I do) but appropriate justice for Grodner would be to get his ass kicked in one of those Islamotard riots France has become known for. Maybe Grodner can find true love in the arms of some young jihadist...apparently that freak, he'll bang anything:
