Roger Clemens - Watch the Fark out!

What is this... bayess-bawll... of which they speak?
 
2003-04-14 02:27:16 PM
Peanut butter jelly and a baseball bat!
 
2003-04-14 02:27:39 PM
sweet headline. :-)
 
2003-04-14 02:28:45 PM
Oh sure, but when I do it to a woman it's 3 months in county.
feh.

Sad, but true. Art Howe just needs to start kicking people in the balls whenever they do something stupid. I think that would improve the team tremendously.

"Grooved another slider, Armando?" *KICK*

It was the guy who hit the robber, not the girl.


Unfortunately, the pharmacist missed hitting for the cycle by a home run.


I wish I could put this guy on my Fantasy Baseball team. What an average !

It's sad but I can't even make fun of the Mets this season W as bad as my Braves are doing. And that is major suckage.
 
2003-04-14 02:32:11 PM
so she hit him three times?

We need to ban ballbats!
Tennis rackets too!!!

and the tee pitches a no hitter!

Am I the only one who sees something wrong with inflicting serious injury on someone, just to protect material things?

Probably so..

Prediction: Mo Vaugh will have a 24 hour eating streak this season.

Wood always feels more satisfying than aluminum...
 
2003-04-14 02:34:45 PM
But, was the daughter hot???

Sheesh! Reporters these days... always missing the important facts.
*shakes head*

Skinink :

--"I just picked up the bat and started hitting the guy over and over and over, probably 30 times," said Candice Francom--

Candice is a man's name? Keep reading the article, you'll see where SHE picks up the bat.

When someone points a gun in your direction, it is not only about material things. Regardless of what his stated intentions are, he is pointing a weapon that could end your life in an instant. I wouldn't blame the people for responding like they did.

Here's a big sleeping pill, fella. Watch out for the high mineral content.

"I just picked up the bat and started hitting the guy over and over and over, probably 30 times..."

Seems just a TAD excessive, no?
 
2003-04-14 02:38:38 PM
Cola:

When that person points a gun at me, I have absolutely no qualms about inflicting serious personal injury. Not that I'd have the guts to try it...

SWING batterbatterbatterbatterbatter SWING !


 
2003-04-14 02:39:31 PM
The daughter claims "[she] just picked up the bat and started hitting the guy over and over and over, probably 30 times", the suspect already had been whacked in the head, and he's still alive? Sheesh.
 
2003-04-14 02:40:17 PM
Sadly, Mo Vaughn isn't even as terrible as Greg Vaughn. Amazing!
 
2003-04-14 02:40:24 PM
Cola,
Where's your house? I need a new TV.
 
2003-04-14 02:40:48 PM
Modernhamlet - you ever had a gun pointed at you? I'd say the lady held back. The asshat got what he deserved, only less so.
 
2003-04-14 02:42:46 PM
"Am I the only one who sees something wrong with inflicting serious injury on someone, just to protect material things?

Probably so.."

I agree, inflicting serious injury was wrong.

Should have killed the bastard.

"Skinink :

Yeppers sorry. I thought I didn't miss that part.
Reading is fundamentalism !

Please note: if you are a student athelete in Massachusetts, you must fend off robbers with wooden bats only.
 
2003-04-14 02:44:06 PM
MorningBreath, I say nothing against protecting yourself. Hitting the man in the head to knock him out is OK but beating someone 30 times with a freaking baseball bat is just unnecessary and cruel. Hit your hand with your fist 30 times and then consider bashing a person for that long. I think that woman is a menace as well if anything.

Snooker, I have a really shiatty tiny old TV. I doubt you'd want it. I have a new computer though.
 
2003-04-14 02:44:09 PM
Feed that robber into the wood chipper along with the live chickens. Huh? What do you mean that thread hasn't been posted yet?
 
2003-04-14 02:45:07 PM
I wonder if she'll sign with Nike or Reebok?
 
2003-04-14 02:45:56 PM
Doesn't count unless it was a wooden bat.

EasyMidget:

"Prediction: Mo Vaugh will have a 24 hour eating streak this season."

But can Mo out-eat Rich Garces?
 
2003-04-14 02:46:17 PM
Gator8387 -- I would suggest that this depends on how much of a threat the suspect posed at that point. He apparently had lost the pistol, but the article doesn't say whether he was still fighting to get it back, or trying to hurt them, or struggling to break free, or what.

"RADAR TRACKS BOLDFACE BOORS"

Coincidence?
 
2003-04-14 02:47:55 PM


I'd hit it... even with the snaggletooth.
:D

(video can be found here )
 
2003-04-14 02:48:06 PM
Hah!

Enter "bat beat down" in GIS and see what returns...
 
2003-04-14 02:48:25 PM
Whola lotta face goin' on..

Yet another reason not to move here: OUR PHARMACISTS' DAUGHTERS WILL BLUDGEON YOU SENSELESS WITH BASEBALL BATS.

Oh, yeah, and also: THE SONICS WILL SAP YOUR WILL TO LIVE.

But mostly the thing with the bludgeoning.

Am I the only one who sees something wrong with inflicting serious injury on someone, just to protect material things?

well, first of all, if you think its over "material things" you're being simplistic. There is something to be said for the sanctity of your person.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with inflicting serious injury on someone who is trying to take something from you.
 
2003-04-14 02:48:58 PM
Cola it is a chick against a guy with a loose gun in the room.

If it happens to you, be a hero and only hit the guy once.

Everyone else, hit him until he stops moving.
 
2003-04-14 02:49:03 PM
Make that "bat beatdown"
 
2003-04-14 02:49:26 PM
The headlines funny because the Mets suck.


/ I've got nothing
 
2003-04-14 02:50:05 PM
Excessive? F|_|CK NO! If anyone ever pointed a gun at me & I had the same chance as this old man I'd be beating them till I was 100% POSITIVE that they weren't going to get up & try that shiat again.
 
2003-04-14 02:53:14 PM
A friend who is a police officer once told me "better six years in the can than six feet underground."

I don't think a person should be required to show ANY restraint under those circumstance. You expect an old guy and his daughter to go mano a mano with someone who just threatened to kill them?

fark that.
 
2003-04-14 02:53:54 PM
Sue the farkers!!
 
2003-04-14 02:54:23 PM
I think she should be charged for intentionally inflicting body shots when she knew full well that 30 headshots would likely kill the guy. As far as I'm concerned, you threaten another human being with a gun, your life is forfeit.

Remember junkies, crime doesn't pay.
 
2003-04-14 02:54:25 PM
Isn't it sad that she had to worry about what lawyers might do to her while she's defending her life from a crazy with a gun.
 
2003-04-14 02:55:16 PM
Damn, wrong thread. Poor aim.
