    Then they have a problem. It is not worth spending jail time, losing a career or worse because of insults. That falls under the heading of irrational response. A judge, jury, employer et al will not see it as a proper and proportionate response.

    Okay, I guess you're lucky to be a Vulcan and devoid of emotion. I just disagree that there is never any reason to issue a physical response. Not necessarily a punch but it makes it hard to discuss when all physical contact is being considered an assault.

    Children do that. Not adults.

    Especially not adults who are dealing with strangers whose opinion should hold no power over them.

    Why would you care what someone who had no bearing on your life and that you never have to interact with said?

    Prisons and graveyards are full off people who have criminal emotional responses instead of just acting like an adult.

    Most people don't react how you state though. Millions upon millions have a strong enough self in sense where their pride and ego isn't that fragile.

    No one should pick him up off of waivers.

    Not devoid of emotion.

    Just having emotional control.

    If you don't, then work on it. Life gets so much easier when you don't get bruised at every slight by unimportant people.

    When I did my study abroad in London I had many conversations about politics, people, etc. Hot and emotional topics. You learn when to engage or not.

    Once a group of 5 of us were walking and stopped at a light. This little scrawny dude comes up to us and says the following: "all Americans should be shot..... In the f'in head"

    We were all between 19-22. Two in our group were seniors who started for our basketball team. At the time I went about 6'5" 200. Our smallest guy was about 5'9" and built.

    This dude was about 5'6" and maybe 135.

    Our response?!

    We laughed. The guy was thrown off and did a mocking laugh and we then wished him a good day and told him we appreciated him as the light changed and we went on with our day - which included a decent lunch, some sightseeing, real conversation with locals and many tasty beers.

    It would have been easy to beat the hell out of the guy. He definitely was trying to be offensive and get us riled up.

    There was around 7m people in the city. This was just random guy on the street that we would never see again, was no threat to us and was completely irrelevant to our lives.

    The only way he could harm us is if we reacted in a way where we would harm ourselves.

    Again, not complicated

    Depending on how he learns and reacts from this I would be ok seeing him on the field.

    If he can grow beyond being a knucklehead and actually show accountability his offense isnt one that can't be redeemed.

    However, redemption can't come without reflection and effort

    If a person knows the rules of law going in, adjust or fail.

    The police didn't know who Hunt was and still didn't arrest him. A black man assaulting a white girl not being arrested? Does that sound common? It suggests to me that she wasn't actually hurt or anything more than scared and that she was in that situation because of her own actions.

    So why does Hunt have to suffer all of the consequences? She is the monster in this situation, not him. Anyone who intentionally sets out to extort and/or ruin another person's life is much more monstrous than someone who loses their temper after being continuously prodded.

    You don't know this, yet you state it as fact despite being very improbable

    You're saying cops make race base decisions as their standard and anything outside of that isn't a norm?

    Because he started a physical confrontation after putting himself into a bad situation and then lied about the scenario to his private employer that he knew full well would disapprove of his actions.

    The only consequences that are being handed out are by his employer.

    Should the NFL hand consequences to anyone else?

    Dude, you're drowning already. May not want to put on lead boots

    Set out to ruin his life?

    Continuously prodded?

    This had to be a parody account right?!

    Or maybe a teenager with no life experience?

    Just being obtuse for giggles?

    Unbelievable that some people are resorting to race in this discussion.

    The situation here is simple. Hunt shouldn't have had a 19 year old girl at his booze fueled party. The 19 year old shouldn't have been there, and should have acted like an adult. If she did in fact hit someone with a lamp and start breaking out racial slurs, terrible on her.

    But the long and short of it is that you can't be a 24 year old NFL star and go start **** in the hallway of a hotel. You CERTAINLY cannot kick a 19 year old girl in the ribs when she's down. Even if you're uncomfortable calling hotel security or the police, at least thumb a friend a few hundred bucks to kindly escort her away, instead of putting your career on the line.

    I so saw this coming.

    The Cardinals need to draft a player with no question marks on character at the top of the board.
