Coming from the most imperfect person I've ever known (me), I agree with everything you just said. But this isn't my opinion Vs the opinion of those who may disagree with me. We can all pontificate (including me) about culture and legalities and who has what right to do whatever, but in the end (for me) it's about the one who didn't get a vote in this whole mess. That's a four year-old child who ended up with a body full of bruises and cuts. I just can't think of a scenario where this can be condoned. You know what? AP might be a hell of a guy and and a hell of a parent, but this **** is wrong on every level. That's where the argument begins and ends with me.
I don't disagree with anything you wrote, especially the part about the one person who doesn't have a voice, which is the 4 year old child.
I wasn't defending AP, I don't know him, and any opinion I did have has been tainted by his recent actions--and frankly his own statements show an incredible amount of ignorance.
I simply think we live in a society with no privacy whatsoever anymore and it bothers me.
And some of the most judgemental mofos, the finger-pointers, the holier-than-thou's, are the most messed up people out of all of us.
The corporations like Nike and the beer companies, even freaking Mcdonalds, raising a fuss are some of the worst criminals on the planet and have done far more harm than AP or Rice ever did by far--they've harmed far more people, even children. It's pathetic.
I still think average dude's and dudette's should mind their own business. I won't waver in that. Have you ever met, personally met, anyone in your life qualified to judge you? To JUDGE you? Hold you in contempt and suggest your livelihood and family should be taken away from you against your will?
I've met a lot of smart mofos, really smart, and I've met a lot of morally/ethically superior people than me, but I've never met someone qualified to dole out penance for the things I've done.
It's fine to have an opinion, I have my own as well and I think it was wrong, but people acting like they know what's best for Rice's wife or AP's kid are arrogant and ignorant.
Most people, a majority of them, don't even have control of their own lives. Yet they're going to dictate **** to someone else? That's just as much a joke as Nike getting all self righteousy about child abuse.
And I'll say it again man, the law failed in the case of Rice and the team and league failed in the case of AP: that doesn't happen and this is a non-discussion, we aren't even having this conversation.
(And this may sound humorous but I'm entirely serious: if I ever had to go on trial the last thing I'd want is a jury of my peers judging me. Some of the dumbest, most judgemental, preachy, unintelligent blobs of worthless flesh ever to walk the earth. I'd rather have a jury of someone else's peers)
