An Ass Suing For Assault

leave a comment »

You know what’s sad about this story? I bet the defendant wins, or at least gets a reduced jail sentence. And defense lawyers wonder why they’re so despised.

A man is suing an auto-parts store for assault and battery after he attempted to hold up the business and employees responded by beating him with a metal pipe.

Dana Buckman, 46, walked into an auto shop brandishing a semiautomatic pistol last summer, only to have it turned on him by two AutoZone employees, police said. The men beat Buckman with a metal pipe and held him with his own gun.

Buckman escaped and was arrested a week later.

He pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery and was sentenced to 18 years in prison as a repeat violent felon.

Buckman claims the men chased him out of the store and continued to beat him. He is suing the auto shop and the men for the injuries he suffered and for emotional distress.

“In some respects, you wonder if a case like this even needs a defense. It speaks for itself,” said lawyer Patrick B. Naylon, who represents AutoZone and the employees.

But lawyer Phillip R. Hurwitz, who represents Buckman, said the employees crossed the line by pursuing Buckman and attacking him.

“The danger was past,” Hurwitz said. “These two employees took it upon themselves to go after Mr. Buckman after he left the store.”

The Enemy And My Enemy Is … Making It Me Hard To Cheer Someone On

leave a comment »

When watching the World Cup Sunday, I didn’t know who to cheer for in the Iran/Mexico game. Should I pull for the country that is sneaking over the border and refusing to assimilate with American culture or side with the country that wants to nuke my backyard? After much thought, I decided that I feel more for the Iranians. I’m sure at least half of them would chop my head off if given the chance, but it’s too bad they got an extremely unfavorable reaction from the crowd over the policies of their wacko president/prime minister/whatever he’s called. Wow. I really am turning into a commie.

Big Ben’s Big Wreck

leave a comment »

Oh God help me. Big Ben just got into a motorcycle accident and is currently listed in serious but stable condition. He wasn’t wearing a helmet. Well at least I know what is going to be the top story in my area for the next month or so. I don’t know who was at fault in this accident, but if it’s not Ben, the other motorist, even if he or she is from out of state, will be wishing to be Steve Bartman when it’s all said and done. And while I’m on the subject, I can’t wait to hear all the cries of hysteria over Pennsylvania amending its helmet law a few years ago so motorcyclists can opt not to wear this headgear. The local media have already shifted their resources to the scene of the crash, Steelers Headquarters, and the hospital where Ben was taken. Nice to see they focus on the important things in life; little wonder why I don’t take the Shittsburgh media all that seriously.
