    Well, it's not just lawyers who are unscrupulous. It is also people who hire lawyers. That is, some of the members of the audience. It's like guns. Guns don't kill people , people kill people. And a lawyer is a gun in this case. Lawyers don't sue people for a quick buck, people hire lawyers to help them sue other people for a quick buck. People take no responsibility for their own actions and so, always look for someone to blame. that being said, it doesn't seem very safe to invite the audience onto a stage that may or may not support their weight.
