    Well, after surfing the net today, looking for what else...truck parts lol! I usually check sports section, and this was one of the articles. I couldn't believe how disgraceful and disrespectful people are to each other.. Then people wonder why there is so much crime and violence everywhere. Not going to ruin the link, but watch the video..

    Good thing I am not a Philly Flyers fan.... how embarrassing and disgraceful to be a Flyers fan!... Go DALLAS! lol...

    Fans beating the heck out of an opposing teams fans seems to be a big sport now a days.
    This about the third incident like this in the past couple weeks and theres been probably another 15 more incidents in the past 6 months.
    Maybe they need to start treating these like racial hate crimes and throw the book at these clowns instead of letting them get simple assault chages that dont add up to anything after they plea bargain down.

    Thats the prob everywhere, the court systems are so jammed packed with other criminal offenses, that they usually push these "assault cases" to the back..and the thefts, the burglaries, murders take priority over everything.. That most people that commit these offenses get probation and a fine... Our court system is so backed up, a traffic ticket will take 2 years to go to court...Pretty sad!

    Dallas city police recently instituted a regulation that they wont respond to or prosecute shoplifting if the amount is $50 or under.
    2 months later the police chief has the balls to announce at a media event "Our theft stats are showing a decrease, it must be all the great police work were doing out there" nice cover-up jerk off, how about the fact you stopped reporting half the thefts committed as a crime and theyre now handled as a civil issue by the complaintant/store owner.
    I'm sure it'll save the city lots of money in court cost's and police manpower though.
    Almost every major U.S. city has backed up courts. Many legal and law proffessionals are saying the easiest way to get out of a traffic ticket now is to take it to trial, the courts are so overloaded by time it hits the docket it could be 2-3 years and the police normally wont show up so they get dropped or you can claim the long waiting period violated your rights to a speedy trial. Dont know if those rles hold true in Canada but the U.S. has backed it'self into a corner with their laws by trying to be overly fair.
    But back to the subject at hand if those were tried in a U.S. Federal court, which is what jurisdiction a hate crime falls under the rules would be slightly different and the punishment a little more harsh.

    This past year we found sports to be deadly. Man falls to his death trying to catch a ball for his son, man beaten to disablement at one baseball game others are shot. Fight in the stands, now we are attacking you for the clothes you wear? Sounds like European soccer fans as well as south American soccer fans. Geez I live where there is pretty heated rivalry between two college teams and the religious school went after the other schools wife. Makes one wonder why they hide behind religion. Same church was responsible for killing several Arkansas travelers at what is now called " Mountain Meadow massacre". It is shameful that we let ourselves get to these low levels of civilization.
    And to top it off we put a panty waste in the white house making our country look more foolish than anytime previous.
