Even assuming that the version of events in the story is totally accurate, BA is not responsible for his clients' wrongdoing. Stepping up to defend a reprehensible client is a morally good act, even if the client is guilty, because the system absolutely depends on everyone having effective counsel.
We're not judging Barry by his clients. Rather, we're judging Barry by Barry. He's got a wee bit of a track record of being an arrogant, insensitive fuckwad, and this latest bit of Barryana is just consistent with that track record.
