Thursday, December 30, 2004 You are never responsible for what you do
because you can always appeal to looney judges to absolve you.
NEW YORK — A federal judge ruled Thursday that Indiana All-Star Jermaine O'Neal (search) does not have to serve the final 10 games of his suspension for fighting with fans at the end of the Pacers-Pistons game last month.
Guess who won the argument? It doesn't really matter what you do at work, apparently. Your employer has no rights to punish you. All behavior is protected.
This is what liberal law schools and judges have done to the notion of respect for authority (except the only authority we're supposed to respect now is the court's).
Of course, when people start suing the NBA for the behavior of those thugs in uniform, their failure to control the arena and the players, then the courts will rule that the NBA has all the authority in the world to take responsibility for that, I suppose.
A classic d***ed if you do. D***ed if you don't. What a world. posted by Mark Butterworth | 9:16 PM |
