Good point. I had not come across this little tirade from Matt Hale
before. It would indeed appear that Hale advocates "taking the law into
his own hands" if he deems it necessary, which is contrary to everything a
lawyer is supposed to stand for. That statement may be one of the "other
reasons" I speculated about besides Hale's racism and anti-Semitism as
possible reasons for the Illinois Bar Association's rejection of Hale's
application. If Hale's stupid enough to put such things on a web site
accessible to anyone, then what other writings of his may have been placed
into evidence for his application to the Bar?

Which just goes to show that even graduating from law school and passing
the bar exam does not guarantee that someone actually understands the
"highest law of the land." One wonders what Hale was doing during his
years in law school that he would make such statements.
