Bangkok: Defense lawyers just doing their jobs

MK10ART depicts defense lawyer Marc Agnifilo explaining DOS as people just having idyllic and free from guilt sex.

A comment made in the article Feds Expose More Of Their Evidence – More Bad News For Raniere is as follows:

“Every time I think it can’t get any more horrifying, it does. It makes it all the more amazing that these defense lawyers are so flippant about it all, and acting like it’s a social gathering every time they are in court.”

This prompted a reply from Bangkok:

By Bangkok

You’re right.

The defense lawyers should be hanging their heads in shame and showing a somber demeanor when entering court, so as to telegraph how guilty their clients are.


NXIVM defense attorneys are just doing their job.

Guess what?

In order for their clients to be acquitted, the jury needs to believe that those Jane Doe witnesses were sluts and freaks.

Thus, there’s no benefit to having defense attorneys showing respect towards victims here — since it won’t help with an acquittal. The more respect they show towards the victims, the more guilty their clients will be perceived by jurors.

If the jury winds up ‘believing’ those Jane Doe victims, their clients are getting FUCKING FRIED. Simple as that.

This isn’t a case where tactful respect (towards the victims) will win. It’s a case where the victims need to be painted as lying sluts and hooligans, so they can at least hang the jury with 1 or 2 holdouts.

If you don’t understand what a defense attorney’s job is then try asking Mr. Claviger.

Seriously though, not everybody here has had the honor that you’ve had in meeting Nancy Salzman.

Not everybody here has had the HONOR of letting Nancy ‘corner them’ during an intensive (while cowering on all fours like a deer in the headlights) — while allowing Nancy to verbally rip them to shreds.

I can’t remember exactly who said that but I’m kinda sure it was you, if my memory serves. But I could be wrong. 🙂

I realize it was very traumatic to get ‘owned’ by Nancy while not fighting back against her or showing courage in the face of aggression, but that’s your own experience and not ours — so please don’t expect us all to feel as “horrified” as you do.

As for me, I’ve got my popcorn ready just like everybody else here, including Frank and Claviger.

IMO it’ll be more entertaining than OJ’s trial and Phil Spector’s trial all rolled into one, though unfortunately not televised.

If you take no delight in this trial and wish to make us all feel guilty for being entertained, so be it. I respect your point of view. Please respect ours too.

    • Scott,

      Wow! You agree with yourself? What a surprise. Scott your Bangkok and everyone realizes it. Scott you are delusional.

      WTF the jig is up.

    • Scott,

      Why of course you agree with yourself. It is not so surprising. I believe I speak for everyone at the Frankreport, it is far more entertaining when you argue with yourself, and then have an anonymous commentor(yourself as well) chide Bangkok and accuse Bangkok of being Dennis Burke. Whenever you do that Scott I find it f*cking hilarious. It’s like who does this dumb mother f*cker think he is fooling. Seriously? LMFAO

  • Another excellent article by Scott BangCuckle Johnson!!!!!! Absolutely stellar!!!!!

    When you do not have a job it is amazing what you can achieve and how enlightened you can become.

    Staying up late every night just like Keith Raniere. 3 am or 4am it does not matter because you have no job. 🙁

  • Small Correction (for accuracy purposes):

    It was actually Christine Collins who ‘cornered’ and verbally ripped that girl apart at a NXIVM intensive, not Nancy Salzman.


    After being driven into a panic attack by Christine Collins, she still showed up on the last day of the intensive even though she didn’t want to — where she was again peer pressured by others. It actually took her ‘months’ to recover mentally from the experience, according to her own words.

    Quote Below (I capitalized a few words):
    For me, I had panic attacks when I was younger. I hadn’t had one in probably 12 years before Christine Collins PUT ME INTO ONE during the intensive, which isn’t surprising given the amount of physical stress it puts you under to be in those conditions for days on end.

    She literally PHYSICALLY put me in a CORNER and wouldn’t LET ME OUT, going at me like a drill sergeant, and I literally couldn’t breathe.

    I had been saying I didn’t feel like I was a victim, that I am happy with the choices I have made in my life, and I like myself the way I am, so she turned me into a victim to prove to me I was one.


    Ridiculously, I did show up for the LAST DAY to spend it being forcefully PEER PRESSURED to go another 11 days.
