Posted May 21, 2008

— The former president of the American Bar Association chose anger management classes over criminal punishment in a parking dispute Wednesday, a source told WRAL.

Raleigh lawyer A.P. Carlton Jr. was charged with assault on a female after an altercation Jan. 11. That charge will be dropped once Carlton completes the anger management class.

    Steve, you're right. I don't know if I'd go so far as the jaw breaking part, but the point is well made. There is a double standard. If a man defends himself against a woman attacker then he is called aggressive, but if a woman attacks a man then she is usually said to be standing up for herself.

    I'd love to hear the whole story behind this one. I can just as easily see some psychotic woman raging on to the point where the attorney felt that physical intervention was needed to protect him as I can him going nuts to start with. Unfortunately, in our politically correct society, it is not generally lawful for a man to defend himself against women unless she is coming at him with a chainsaw.

    Personally, if a woman threatens me with physical harm, I'm gonna break her jaw just as I would as if a man had done the same thing.
