Sin_City_Superhero: Bravo Two: And from the article, it sounds like this asshat dealer was in and out of the joint

So what? Are you saying that ex-cons don't deserve any civil liberties, or protection under the law? Look, I'm not pro-heroine, or anything, and I'll agree that the guy is scum, but that doesn't mean that he doesn't get to enjoy the same rights as you and I. For that matter, what gives YOU the right to determine what crimes should be punished by a baseball bat beating? What if someone decides that YOU'RE doing something that warrants a beating?


Perhaps, as a hard-drug dealer he gets a few extra rights. One of them is the right to enjoy regular beatings with a baseball bat.

She should sue him in civil court for damage to her bat.  I think she'd win.

I don't understand this at all. I think that, while a bit foolish, perhaps this young man only wanted to add the crowning jewel to his aviary. I fail to see the harm. Furthermore, people who deal in rare/exotic animals may be a bit misguided, but I don't think they would be in the business if they didn't genuinely love nature in all her wild glory. Herons are one of the most beautiful indigenous birds to the United States and- What? Heroin?

Sin_City_Superhero: Bravo Two: i love how there're people on Fark and elsewhere that would convict her.

Me too. She assaulted the guy with a bat. She gets a trial to determine if she is guilty. That is a courtesy she did not extend to her victim. Regardless of your feelings, we do NOT condone vigilantee justice in this country. She is not the police, judge, jury, and enforcer. We pay taxes to pay for a comprehensive justice system...cops, attorneys, judges, jailers, etc. She should've let them do their job.


And from the article, it sounds like this asshat dealer was in and out of the joint more often than my penis is in and out of your mom. There comes a point where they don't just learn.

Maybe one of the mods is dyslexic too?

If she had done her job as a parent and beat up her son early and often, that poor heroin dealer needn't have suffered.

jtown: What DA was stupid enough to go forward with the case, anyway?


Maybe the DA was ok with not getting a conviction in this case?

Mods are ultimate trolls, demons some say, that feed on the hatred of others.

Don't commit the crime if you can't do the time.

She should have called the police.
