    The crooked law society of NZ have shafted him. We need him back. He is a great advocate for our hobby.

    Here is a link to a Give a little page to help him appeal the decision. Every dollar will count even the smallest donation.

    Hmmm... Richard's history back to 1994 is coming back haunt him it seems.

    I can certainly think of worse individuals who were admitted to the bar.

    How you you figure that ? Having a bunch of lawyers refuse to let you join their ranks because they think you are a loose cannon pretty much says it all

    Are we to take it that you consider anyone who challenges the police position, a loose cannon?

    The police position being that they can make up the law as they see fit!

    As an aside, I note that Clint Rickard was accepted as a fit and proper person to join their esteemed ranks.

    Don't think so bud! It's an old boys club with lots of undertow. A disgrace. Corrupt as a Mexican copper! We need guys like Lincoln to keep balance.

    The part I find most concerning is everybody makes mistakes, we are not perfect. But in regards to Lincolns case especially, his are rather trivial to consider him not "fit & proper" to practise law.

    He probably doesn't shake hands properly and is "uninitiated" to the justice fraternity.

    "Balance" is not the word that comes to mind when thinking of Richard Lincoln...

    By his natural style he creates balance. That's a good thing that the unbalanced law society don't like.

    Well, you are right there in so much as we only know what "good" is because we can compare it to "evil". Accordingly, his past behaviour gives perspective to the Law Society and Court to what rational and professional actually means. Hence his exclusion.

    It is a poor reason to support him simply because he is a gun advocate.

    I guess when you take the cops to court and win, it gives them good reason to go after you?

    clint rickards ,barry hart both spring to mind as outstanding examples of ho hum legal beagles.jesus wept karen soich was mistress of terry clark mr asia and she was readmitted to the NZ bar and looka t the numerous bastrds with fat arses warming the seats of the big sheepshed in wellington..not a week goes past without one of em being up before the old beak for dippin fingers in the trust a/c etcetc. yup lincoln may well have been a little left of centre in some actions ,but against the named mob id venture to say hes pretty fucking tame!
    stil llaw societies are just that ,a law unto themselves ,and lets face it its commonknowledge both lawyers nad accountants use their personalities as contraception.

    I hear here some good argument about why certain people should not have been admitted in the past. Which to me simply adds weight to why Lincoln ought not be now, not that he should be.
