WinoRhino: ongbok: This was about respect. The guy disrespected him in front of his friends. He was pissed, drunk and wanted to save face. I bet if you really dig deep into it, the guy was probably the low man on the totem pole in the group and was always picked on, that night he decided to do something about it.

FTFA: "He stated that he was angry that when he returned the victims laughed at him," prosecutors said.

Yeah, that's what I think too. We had a far more scaled down version of this happen one time when a bunch of friends rented a vacation home in our early 20s. One guy had a girlfriend who was a complete drama queen. People were horsing around and throwing each other into the pool. After several people got tossed in, we went after her. She freaked out, started crying before we got her to the pool, so we let her go. She ran and hid in her bedroom sobbing. The boyfriend (our friend) goes to check on her and comes downstairs, threatening that he will "fark up" the next guy that picks on her. He's screaming at the top of his lungs and is really animated. There's a few beats of silence and everyone starts laughing. The guy turned beat red and you could tell he was more frustrated at no one taking him serious than he was about the girlfriend-in-the-pool bit. He grabs a nearby beer bottle by the neck, and smashes it against a table. Brandishing the jagged bottle in his hand, he screams like a girl, "I'm not farking kidding!" Another beat, more laughter. Thankfully he wasn't a violent guy so he just whipped the remainder of the bottle against the wall and stormed off. I mean, aside from attacking one of his friends, where does he go from there? It wasn't normal behavior to begin with, but he wasn't completely psycho.


I hate to break it to you but a guy breaking a bottle and threatening people with the shards before hurling them against a wall over some slight to his girlfriend?  That's a guy who just hasn't been violent yet.

Brews before bros, bros before hoes. It's basic common sense.

Well, to be honest with you, as I was typing that I was thinking the same thing. It certainly wasn't normal behavior. But it's been about 14 years since that occurred, and if anything he's mellowed out quite a bit. There's never been anything remotely close to that type of behavior again (that I know of) so I'll give him a pass.

gadian: Was it at least a good beer?


Yeah they always leave out the important shiat! Journalism is truly suffering.

Kuta: In heaven, there is no beer...


But heaven has a halfpipe.

The chick probably goaded him into it. You know the kind " GO DEFEND MY HONOR!!! DON'T YOU LOOOOVE MEEEEE? IF YOU DON'T KICK THEIR ASSES YOU'RE NO MAN!!!!"

Wow, this far in and I'm the first to say "Well at least he had a good reason?"

tampaflacouple: If the assh*le is here illegally ( more than likely) why can't the cops just shoot him dead and save the US taxpayers money. I mean he wasn't supposed to be here anyway . He is technically trespassing and owns a gun ( not registered I am sure ).

No one would care... especially me

More cops killing trash saves us $$$$


You'd better hope they don't consider you trash some day.
