Blowing the whistle on a bad decision
By Peter Vecsey
New York Post

October 13, 2006 -- IT REEKS of everything we find contemptible about our judicial system that a grievance filed by a recognized Palace punk against Jermaine O'Neal is actively being litigated.

With apologies to Danny Fortson's maximum effort to back me down in the law docks, can a claim get any more frivolous?

The stands belong to the fans. The floor belongs to the players. The survey markers are clear. Any space invader who tramples onto someone else's property has to be stone stupid, emotionally unstable, totally wasted, or out to make beaucoup bucks, not to understand the stiff consequences.

And then there's the U.S. District judge in Detroit who can't seem to differentiate a perp from a person protecting teammates.

How can an intruder, namely Charles Haddad, whose lawyer lamely contends was "minding his own business" when the "unprovoked" wind-up punch occurred, have a legitimate leg to stand on?

We all saw the lunatic (accompanied by another loser) strut across the playing fringe on Nov. 19, 2004, and confront Ron Artest. His body language unmistakably showed Haddad wanted a piece of the Pacer. Artest quickly obliged. Anthony Johnson arrived to help and tripped while throwing a punch. Seeing that, O'Neal rumbled to his teammates' aid and summarily prosecuted this particular trespasser.

Surely most of us agree the staggered stumblebum got what was coming to him. And that certainly didn't include Haddad wasting a jury's time hearing nonsense about him being unreasonably roughed up.

It's inconceivable this fraudulent complaint was permitted to get this far or that damages might actually get awarded. If that happens, all sporting events are being set up for subversion. Imagine if this guy wins some form of satisfaction. Playing fields and floors will be inundated with taunting imbeciles just begging for a butt-whipping.


In other Pacers court proceedings, Stephen Jackson, America's shooting guard, pleaded not guilty to criminal recklessness and was released on 10G bail. Sources say Jackson offered community service, but no community in its right mind would touch him.

Before lapsing into a judgmental diatribe on how today's athletes are such gunners, keep in mind that a number of high profile Bulls packed heat (Scottie Pippen, for sure) during their glory days. And they could be as infantile as any of our current fools in the league, recklessly brandishing them in the locker room.

One regular in their midst once told me he'd often witnessed red dots on players' chests from a teammate's pointed laser gun. Sheriff Phil Jackson finally put a stop to it, ordering them to turn over their hardware to the trainer as soon as they came through the door.

At the same time, one more arrest and the Pacers qualify for class action status.

This part was an interesting offer. He could get a job eliminating stray animals in INDY and surrounding towns. Dogs, cats, alligators, etc. What ever needs to go. :)

Pigeons?

The flying kind of course.....not the ones that pay to see him play, although he's doing a pretty good job of eliminating them too.

If this case had merit then JO would have settled. This guy will be lucky to get a $1. Can someone tell me whether he is barred from the Palace? That will certainly factor in.
