White Sox fan gets probation....

The judge ruling the case stated that because of the unusual nature of the crime jail time would not be a deterent to others who may want to jump out on a baseball field and attack a coach. Can this ruling be appealed? I have no faith in a judicial system that lets idiots like this get off with a slap on the wrist.

What do you think would have happened to a Royals player if he would have hit the attacker with a baseball bat. He would have gotten jail time because they would have said unprovoked assault with a deadly weapon or maybe that he wasn't defending himself by nailing the guy with a bat. Just like if someone is robbing your house and twists his ankle on your kids toy and has to miss work, he can sue you, it's true!

I mean, the guy has hearing loss. What was this judge thinking?

If I was a Congressman, I'd make a law (yes I know the process but play along) called the Common Sense Law. I probably add some f bombs in the title for emphasis. This law would enable a judge to throw a lawyer and his client in jail together for a period of time if a ridiculous lawsuit is written up. Threatening the lawyer would cause this intelligent scumbag to think twice before representing morons. Too bad I'm a desk jockey.

I'm also thinking of putting a sign in my yard that says, if you hurt yourself in my yard and sue, I'm going to hurt my fist through your face and sue.
