A slap on the wrist? For a beatdown like that? What would YOU do, dads?
The ball player, Danry Vasquez, (an Astros prospect) was able to enter a plea deal.
And the case was eventually dismissed.
‘It was an assault that occurred, we had all the evidence to prove it we just allowed this individual to hopefully get the training and education so he wouldn’t continue to assault people where he has relationships with,’ the district attorney said.
Gonzalez said that Vasquez agreed to comply with the terms of the plea deal.
He’s gonna get some training on how not to beat the hell out of a lady?
Most other guys had that. Do you know what we called it?
We had a dad who taught us that a real man PROTECTS a woman from OTHER threats, even if it means taking the fall yourself.
That a woman in your company should have no reason to fear because a man will step up and protect her, whether she thinks she needs it or not.
And that only a coward ever… EVER raises a hand to a woman.
Watch the news report:
If it was your daughter, and you saw the judge let him get off with ‘how not to be an a-hole that beats up women half his size lessons’, what would you do?
Maybe he could add something useful to those ‘lessons’ he’s getting. Like some clarity on what courage is SUPPOSED to look like.
When you were done ‘chatting’ with him, would he ever be able to raise a hand to another woman again? Or, for that matter, hold a baseball?
Then again, maybe you’re ok with the fine and the ‘lessons’.
Which is it?

That is, if the man-child will put down his frappuccino; shut the hell up and listen and obey everything he instructs them to do in his timely and tornadic tome.

This shirt is sure to liven up the party. It doesn’t have just ONE controversial statement, but TWO. With Jesus in the mix, it could nearly start a riot.
Which, if you’ve read the book, was pretty much what would happen when Jesus swept into town, anyway. But which part of the shirt will get people more heated?
Jesus kicking ass? Some people actually have a problem with that?
Set aside the fact that he’s returning as a conquering king:
Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron.
Even in his time here, he was hardly the hippie-dippie gentle Jesus that pacifists would paint him as. He told his followers to ‘buy a sword’.
He swaggered into the temple like he owned the place. Because He does.
He saw the contempt the merchants and swindlers had for the real significance of the house — and he started braiding a whip.
A WHIP! Then he started, literally, cleaning house.
And before the Fundamentalists get too pleased with themselves… do you know what his very FIRST miracle was?
Turning water into wine.
No, dear. Not ‘grape juice’. Are you kidding? What self-respecting wedding host would have fallen for Welches?. The steward of the feast called it ‘the good stuff’. As in the quality vintage.
Why? Because a wedding is to be celebrated, with wine.
Just how much did Jesus ‘approve’ or ‘disapprove’ of wine?
Let’s flip the question back on the teetotalers: do the words ‘drink this in remembrance of me’ ring any bells?
Now that we’ve answered THAT question… Cheers!
