I wanted to sympathize with this dad because losing your child because of someone else's criminal stupidity is a horrible thing and I understand his rage. But then I got to this part:

According to court records, Gonzalez has been arrested before. In 2006, he was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, leaving the scene of an accident and reckless driving. He pleaded no contest and was sentenced to three years' probation.

So he himself was convicted of driving in an asshole manner that could easily have taken someone else's child away from them. He needs to be thankful that he's not the one on the receiving end of a grieving father's beatdown.

Well he did take his son's life in the face.  Sounds like a pedo to me.

What else were they going to do?  Judges generally don't allow you to assault someone in their courtroom.
 
2013-12-10 09:17:24 AM
Sure, but when a dad punches a reckless snowboarder in the face for running over his son, everyone thinks that's going too far.

I can understand a parents rage getting the better of them. However I wouldn't expect anyone to get away with assault (especially in a courtroom in front of a judge) after they lost it.

yanno... as lame as it is when internet pedants and grammar nazis whine about excessive punctuation methinks this headline could have benefited from a couple commas and/or periods.

Breathe, subby. Don't forget to breathe.

Hmmm.
 
2013-12-10 09:37:36 AM
Regardless of his own history, I guarantee if he asks for a jury trial he will be acquitted.
 
2013-12-10 09:39:19 AM
Oh, yeah... and punching people is indeed a crime. Just because you successfully managed to make your genitals work as intended doesn't make it less so.

I'm sure he'll just get a slap on the wrist but you can't go popping people in a courtroom. It's kind of frowned upon. This ain't Jerry Springer.

That's a jury trial if I've ever seen one.
You put him on the stand to talk about the rush of emotion seeing his son's killer in court and I'd bet the farm you'll get at least a hung jury if not an outright acquittal.

After my cousin was killed by a drunk driver, my uncle went into the school of the drunk driver's kids' class and smacked them around. Although it had more to do with the drunk's kids were beating up my other cousin every day during the trial.

I've seen something like this happen, only it was an asshole on ski's. He came around the corner in a tuck, ran over an 8 yr old who was skiing with his grandfather. He tried to get out of having his pass revoked by apologizing, it didn't work. He was kicked off the hill and banned for the season.
 
2013-12-10 10:03:46 AM
Why bother with a trial? Isn't there a good number of rocks around? Can't we round up a posse and hang'em like we used to do on the tee-vee? Who needs this justice, any way! MOB RULE FOR ALL!!!!

You did notice the Florida tag, right?

Dad shows an extreme lack of commitment in my opinion. Son's killer should have never even seen the inside of a court room.

He still didn't kill anyone.

Police drive drunk off duty all the time. They 'could easily have taken someone else's child away from them' too.

Please kill yourself.

Since no one reads the articles (or even their actual headlines), I'll just point out to everyone that it happened in the courthouse bathroom, not in the courtroom in front of the judge.

I under stand that 3 lefts make a right. Under the right circumstances, this can include 3 left hooks.
 
2013-12-10 10:20:41 AM
If they're stupid enough to charge him, he should demand a jury trial.

Don't worry, if you get killed by a drunk driver I'm sure no one will care enough to punch anyone and offend your delicate notions of justice.

Rapmaster2000: what every white trash parent would do in that situation


"Deputies arrested Juan Gonzalez, 56 "

I'll allow it just based on the epic WT Hetfield stache he's sportin'. It's real popular wit hthe billys, so Juan gets a pass to be white trash today

Also, not for nothing but...

"Powers was trying to make a U-turn in his 1994 Jeep Cherokee from northbound State Road 7 at Orange Drive. Gonzalez[Jr.], who was traveling south on a 1997 Suzuki motorcycle, slammed on his brakes to avoid hitting the Jeep. The motorcycle skidded, slid on its side, and crashed into the Jeep. Gonzalez died from his injuries the next day. "

He hit the drunk driver, not the other way around...if he lived, he'd probably be found at fault in the accident. Color me shocked that a rice rider farked up on his toy and got himself killed. Or not shocked.

 They don't call them donorcycles for no good reason ya know.

Well, that's a shame, because were that to happen, I'd magically return from the grave and get to re-do my life all over again, right?

No, some meathead would get his ephemeral rush and lie to hisself/herself that this is "justice." Sorry I want to evolve, please keep throwing the feces and wishing for thumbs.

Marcus Aurelius: The courtroom is no place for violence.

The place for violence is way out in the sticks.



A couple years back some real ratbastard multiple child molester in an adjacent county kept claiming that he should not be incarcerated because what he had was a disease. I always thought that the judge should have just said that he agreed and made a public decree that he would be release in the backwoods where he was raping kids and be dropped off by the officers at precisely 11:30 on Saturday night at a given intersection after which the officers would have to attend to urgent business elsewhere in the county.

I was going to agree with this, but then went back and read again what happened.

Drunk dude (heading north) was flipping a u-turn and pulled in front of dude on a bike (who was heading south). Dude on the bike went down to avoid the direct impact...got the impact anyways.

Going to have to go no fault to biker in this one.

The definition of worse is truley a matter of perspective in cases of divorce. She's probably not a haggard raven voiced proto victim who failed to make any effort to rise above the low beginnings she found herself in rather than infecting her brand of misery into the souls of all who came in contact with her regardless of their intent godamnihatethatbiatchsomuchbutiamcivilizedandcivilizedpeopledontdragene miesfromthebumberofatwentyfootlongcadillacdownabadcountryroaddothey

He made a U turn into oncoming traffic, it's completely his fault. But good to know motorcycles are the equiv of a drunk girl when it comes to victim blaming.
