In recognition of his last game, Vern.
Ronald Gasser, asshole of the week. Hope he gets thrown under the jail and has to go to Angola where he will be in constant fear for his life.
He won't be charged. Definitely an asshole though. Laws need to be looked at.
Well he was charged wasn't he? http://www.nola.com/crime/index.ssf/2016/12/joe_mcknight_gasser_arrest.html
He is an asshole
Yes, kinda surprising with our laws. Wonder if it goes to trial.
it is heartening that the Justice system has a chance to work though. I don't see a plea that would do either side any good. I expect a trial and if the facts are as reported he spends time in Angola.
I think he should be in jail but with the stand your ground laws, if Mcknight was leaning in the car, he'll walk. What facts make him guilty in your opinion?
First I'm not sure La has a stand your ground law. Second reported evidence doesn't indicate Joe was leaning in but regardless it is an overuse of force. Finally in Normand wants him in prison he'll go there.
IMO these type of acts are untenable in a civil society. We must rely on the law and those who enforce them (police & judicial system) to keep the peace. Vigilante justice becomes anarchy and lawlessness leaving society less safe.
Yet there are occasions where if you don't administer some swift justice within seconds the police will be investigating your murder within minutes
