I agree, and you don't need to be a Bulls homer to see it either. Take Jordan out of the equation and the 90s was crazy full of talent. Hell Jordan alone prevented the league from having a full decade of parity with as many excellent teams that were running around.

The Knicks Pacers feuds were some of the most fun I've ever had watching basketball. You get to watch Reggie Miller do things you never see, and piss on Spike Lee's head at the same time.

This is a tough call. I know that from the fights I've been in, when I put a guy down and out, I stop, but obviously none of those fights have been on the same emotional level of seeing your 5 year old daughter being molested. One situation was sort of comparable, my then-girlfriend getting groped and harassed at a party, and admittedly I didn't stop nearly as soon as I should have but also didn't kill the guy.

The article makes a good point that if he had shot and killed the guy, it would have been a one-and-done deal and he likely wouldn't be in any trouble... Kind of ironic.

What are your takes on the situation?

if he gets anything, it's a travesty. i know there are precedent issues, but common sense needs to be allowed in the courtroom.

What are your takes on the situation?
Isn't Texas the state where you can use deadly force to stop a robbery - of someone else's property? I remember a 911 call of a guy reporting a break-in of three guys robbing his neighbor and he told them to bring an ambulance because he was going to go shoot them. The operator said not to and that police were in route but he dropped the phone, went out and confronted them with merchandise in hand and shot and killed 2 of them. They weren't armed, but Texas law allowed for deadly force to protect anyone's property or something like that. He wasn't charged.

I don't see how this case would warrant a charge if that didn't.

Right or wrong - that's someone else's call. My take on moral and legal don't align usually. I'd say dad is morally in the clear here though. If the price he pays is any prison time, he'll sleep like a baby and knowing the reputation for how prisoners treat molesters, this guy would probably get treated like a hero.

Every day I wake up and I have to decide if this is real life or not.

Sleep deprivation and vivid dreams make me wacky.

I remember one time I hit a line drive foul and smacked a guy sleeping under a tree right in the face. So glad he didn't sue me.

The difference between weird and crazy is how hot she is. Over time the hot factor wears off and the weird becomes crazy.

Beauty fades. It's a cruel joke that most women hit their prime around 18-20. Then their arse falls off ofc

I'd also like to add that not all girls are crazy, just the single ones you're trying to hook up with probably.

I mean, if they were normal, they'd be taken already, right?
