False Outrage

Drudgereport.com has this disgusting ESPN story on a man locked up for "consensual" sex with a minor.

Outrage at the sentence? I'm outraged that ESPN considers a law punishing people for having sex with 15-year-olds is "archaic".

I remember when somebody asked Dodgers legend Tommy Lasorda about Darryl Strawberry's drug use. And Lasorda said, I feel for him, but he does it to himself. Nobody puts that stuff into him. He does it. He chooses it.

Nobody forced this 17-year-old to go to a Days Inn and do booze and pot. Nobody forced him to invite 17 and 15 year olds over for an orgy. Nobody forced him to abandon the 15 year old butt-naked and make her call for help.

And nobody forced them to videotape it either.

And nobody forced him to turn down a plea deal and go for acquittal in front of a jury.

Genarlow Wilson is paying for that stupidity, and it's up to the people of the state of Georgia to decide how hard he oughta pay.

But I really object to ESPN telling me so what, big deal, some 15-year-olds are "instigator"s, they're sluts, use 'em and lose 'em. We've got no right locking up our football stars for plowing 10-year-olds.

Fooey.
