Seriously? You are going to sit here with a straight face and tell me you don't wait until after your house burns down to call the FD when someone sets it on fire?
I agree, some probably did more and some probably did less than OBJ. He still has to be held accountable like everyone else.
I'm willing to bet that list of Joe Shmo's were arrested for a hell of a lot more than what Odell did here
Adding additional charges is irrelevant to the issue here. So what if someone was arrested for drug possession and battery, rape and battery, animal cruelty and battery, possession of an illegal firearm and battery, extortion and battery, etc? OBJ has a warrant out for battery.
If others were arrested for more its irrelevant. If others were arrested for battery its relevant.
Most probably, but that is irrelevant anyway if there are more or other charges. OBJ's charge is battery.
You may be fine with someone smacking you on the ass but you can't speak for others. It also puts these things on record. WHat if he does it a second time, third, fourth, etc. There is no record of it and someone can continue to think its ok and never understand what is wrong with it. Take the OBJ out out it. It doesn't matter who it is, it's wrong.
I'm willing to bet the department has a long list of Joe Schmo's they have arrested on battery, OBJ isn't the first.
Look, I'm not a lawyer, I only play one on TV. If they are applying battery here then it doesn't require intent to do harm. OBJ did something extremely stupid, simple as that.
It's 2020 and OBJ knows by now like everyone else this is inappropriate and everything is caught on film these days.
It's a cop on a power trip
Or its just someone being held accountable for battery. The cop is there doing a job whether that is being a buzzkill or not, he isn't writing the rules, only enforcing them. If OBJ isn't happy about the cop doing his job there or being a buzzkill he could simply take the party elsewhere.
Franklin is trash and given how much has been happening with hazing this is something that he should have handled and shut down. Also surprised to see Parson's hazing a guy in his own class. It's usually senior players doing the hazing.
False. The government isn't forcing Wal Mart to pay their employees low wages and not provide benefits.That's laughable. Wal Mart, a private company is making that decision which in turn forces people to have to use social welfare programs.
Agree with Miami here that businesses hide behind the "market" facade. Prices aren't set by the market, they are set by companies that have market share and power. You can start two businesses. Company A can pay their employees fair wages and benefits, but the Company B is going to go after market share. Company B will grow at a much faster rate and stifle out competition which is what will make prices competitive. Then company B will buy up other companies in various sectors to control even more. We have a ton of companies in this country that are too large. A large portion of the population shop at Wal Mart because that is all they can afford. Wal Mart pays their employees low wages and puts them on government benefits because as tax payers we let them. We subsidize their tax breaks and then turn around and subsidize their employee benefits. There is no reason Wal Mart can't pay their employees "fair" wages. A study was done a few years ago that showed if Wal Mart increased their wage to $17 an hour (iirc) even if they passed all of the cost onto the consumer it would only increase the consumers bill $24 annually.
Agreed and I hate it when I see people say minimum wage jobs are for kids only, yet they use those businesses everyday at lunch/during the day while kids are in school. Totally oblivious.
Thats a joke of a max penalty. Shows they aren't serious then about fixing the games issues and team will continue.
Team pays $5 million. That's not even a slap on the wrist
Most people don't already. All hail the debt cycle.
Yep. I have an uncle that works at Space X and his job is rebuilding the lines to be run by one person or less. Elon sends him to Germany or wherever to buy the equipment needed.
People will ignore things until they effect them personally. It's
I thought it was a NICE amount
Dazed and Confused intro. Sweet Emotion starts up by Aerosmith and a black screen while some opening credits are displayed. Right when Steven Tyler starts to sing we cut to the 1970 Pontiac PTO Judge Rilling through the high school parking lot. Everything just goes together perfectly including the rest of the intro. Best intro to a movie and best scene.
Fun fact: Rush used a 3/4 time signature in the song Circumstances, along with 69 others.
R.I.P. to another icon. The drum jams upstairs just got even more epic.
