I move that all topics relative to this situation be locked to prevent any comments. There's a lot being said on both sides of the aisle, myself included, that may be regrettable once this shakes out.
Why would a woman stay with a woman beater? Clearly you don't know much about domestic violence. I grew up with it. My mom didn't leave for good until I was 27. The assaults started when I was in the womb. So yea, tell me again how a woman would never want to stay with a woman beater
I'm not trying to say anything as fact. Although there were witnesses stating there was no assault in the car, that's not the hypothetical I'm talking about. I'm discussing prior bad acts.
Can I play devil's advocate here? Perhaps Zeke has in fact abused her before, and perhaps he did this time. The fact that he has texts relevant to being setup doesn't dismiss the possibility of violence. She could have been saying something along the lines of "If you break up with me, I'll come out about the things you've done to me". My point here is that there should be no rush to judgment on either side of the fence. The police use what is known as a sting to put probable criminals into a situation for them to commit a crime. If that is in fact what she did, his texts are irrelevant.
It's certainly a possibility. I thought it, just didn't type it.
This is an epidemic right now. Domestic violence is one of the worst problems in society right now. So many high profile people with a voice doing all the wrong things. There may never be charges, but that girl was obviously assaulted by someone.
I like Lighty, too, but it was probably because his lack of any one elite tool.
And nothing. I was just thinking out loud I guess. I think I may have misread your post anyway and thought it said "same aisle". I also just couldn't remember and didn't feel like searching it.
To elaborate, I think people comparing current cases to that one are only looking for "their guy" to be innocent. It's a shame that things like that happen, because it's human instinct to be skeptical when there are so many cases of false accusation. The percentage is low, but it only makes it harder for real victims to find justice.
Not to derail your point, but didn't the victims in the Duke case eventually recant their stories?
That's definitely better than the Adidas color.
Fair points. I should've gone into further detail about what I was trying to imply. If the sexual assault complaints are handled properly, this doesn't become a Baylor problem. In that case, it would be a handful of individuals committing crimes. The school would have very little culpability for the actions of its students. I'm not trying to downplay the crimes, only analyzing the schools role.
From the side of the athletes, he's probably not wrong. Most of them are probably good kids. And he's probably not far off in stating that it happens other places. I wouldn't go as far as saying it happens at most places, though.
The real problem isn't with the student athletes at Baylor. The problem is the administration and coaching staff covering up the crimes. That's when you go from a few bad apples to a systemic problem.
I prefer not to throw any stones period. We've had our fair share of off the field issues. I'll just sit in my glass house, clutching tightly to my stones. That's right. I said it.
Without having a plan or path, you're probably putting too many irons in the fire. I don't know you're background or skills. Hell, even aptitude. If it fits you, skilled trades is a good place to go. The recent focus on white collar jobs has driven wages up for good old fashioned hard labor. I suggest finding something that interests you and get a foot in the door. Construction, carpentry, automotive, HVAC, and plumbing come to mind.
If you're looking for a career, finding something you're interested in is half the battle. I turned my love for cars into a pretty good living. Somewhere along the line, I lost interest in the hobby while building my career. Even still, the love for what I do is always there. Work is always work, but mostly enjoying it will make it easier on you and easier to advance.
I had to leave my current job for two months last year to get my raise. Technically, they offered the raise as I was heading out the door, but I'm a man of principle. I worked at the other place for two months and came back for my 37% raise. Money doesn't buy happiness, but it definitely buys more stuff.
You can get illegal Chinese knockoffs any way you want. I was talking about real jerseys.
I think you can still get customs, you just can't pick the number. Being that you want 16 (the current year), it shouldn't be a problem. I really hate the Chinese knockoffs on principle.
I love this. I think Thad fell in love with being a players coach, and it went too far. I think the days of massaged egos are behind us. Let's get back to developing players.
This is just plain stupid. Learn to make free throws or cost your team the game. The rules shouldn't legislate the entertainment of the game.
That's gold, Jerry.
My first (ish) date with my wife was to see P.S. I Love You with Gerard Butler. Man, that was a bad movie. She actually apologized for picking it.
You have a fair point in the legal sense. These comments should've been stricken from the record. Was Sandusky's lawyer asleep at the wheel? I'm assuming this was in court rather than a deposition. It sounds like a pretty clear cut example of hearsay.
This isn't intended as a defense on Schiano's behalf. I'm simply curious from the legal standpoint.
Fair enough. I was always outside, too. If I were growing up all over again, I'd probably be just the same as kids now.
Or was it "we didn't have fancy gadgets to keep us occupied"?
I'm a bit embarrassed that I downloaded it. I quickly realized I don't have enough free time for this shit. I was never into Pokemon, but I was curious what all the buzz was about. It's actually a cool concept. I just don't really understand it, so I'll keep the app for now, but I won't be chasing Pikachus.
I like your style. It seems most of the fans here have Cavs tunnel vision. I've been watching the NBA since I was 4 years old (25 years ago). I feel like I have a pretty good feel for what quality basketball looks like and how it should be played. The Warriors are absolutely a matchup nightmare when Love is on the floor. That said, there are absolutely ways to hide Love on defense, which Lue did a terrible job with. Outside of Curry, the Warriors aren't exceptionally talented. They just play to their strengths with good players.
