You probably did the right thing but you did miss her gem reply when Doug said to her “so you won the case, what are you thinking right now”? The neckless woman said “no comment”. NO COMMENT? What does that mean? And may I add she tossed her head (but amazingly her thick neck didn’t move at all) as if she was the star witness in some really important case. I’m not even sure she understood the outcome. I am sure she’s not playing with a full deck.
Her attitude reminded me of the Mike Tyson rape case. We were just married, living in Indianapolis and the case was a big show stopper. Anyway, after Tyson was declared guilty his lawyer (I think Dershowitz) ran out of the courtroom, passed the reporters who were shouting questions to him and replied “no comment”. His assistant said he was in a hurry to file an appeal. The funny part was that he was running through the the lobby of the courthouse to go outside to catch a cab. Well, anyone who knows Indianapolis knows it’s not New York and if you want a cab you’re going to have to go to the Circle Hilton or some other hotel and call for one. He didn’t know that. So, after tearing through the the courthouse, almost knocking down a few reporters he’s shown standing outside on the sidewalk looking up and down for a cab.
Morons. All of them.
The justice system didn’t fail him - his parents did. If he’s as old as he is and doesn’t understand that you need to look both ways at the crosswalk and never, ever jaywalk or jay run with being absolutely sure it’s safe - nothing in this world is going to give him smarts. I’m sure he’s the pride of his parents but to outsiders looking in, he’s a stupid fool who will not take responsibility for his actions.
And yeah, the reporting police officer made up his statement.
Include him in the moron comment above.
