Disturbing News Items

The big story in the news over the past few days has been the fight that broke out between players and fans during the NBA game between the Detroit Pistons and Indiana Pacers. Artest got his wish with a season long suspension and will now have plenty of time to work on his rap album. I’m glad to see him go, but I feel bad for the Pacers organization, because their season is all but over.

A much more disturbing story comes from Wisconsin though, where 5 hunters were killed and 3 others injured. If all happened when two hunters were returning to their cabin and noticed somebody in one of their tree stands. After both men were wounded, they radioed back to the cabin for help. The suspect then shot the other hunters who came to help, including a woman and teen-age boy.

What is this world coming to?

  1. I don’t think Artest was totally at blame for this one, where was the security? Why were fans THROWING things? Artest’s reaction is inexcusable, but there was alot that was inexcusable.

    Anyone who was involved, cheered, threw or yelled is to blame as well. It’s sickening.

    And people say hockey is out of control. Shit.

  2. I don’t think he was totally to blame either…no one was. But…if someone comes to my office and heckles me, I don’t jump over the counter and start beating on them. It’s part of the job and he should know how to deal with it.

  3. Paul says:

    He shouldn’t have lounging on the scorer’s table in the first place. I can’t unroll my sleeping bag on the conference room table just because I’m stressed.

    Artest is a douche bag. He’s got a reputation for aggressive/flagrant fouls, and with a minute left in a game that was all but over, he was obviously looking for trouble. F him. I hope he never plays again.
