  • How Donald Sterling Will Beat The NBA

    First off, to be clear I am not a lawyer. I am an over the road truck driver. While this may make you want to be quick to dismiss my observations here, hear me out first. If at the end of the article you still want to dismiss me, feel free. If, however, this article leaves you thinking that I make some valid points, come back and read this first paragraph again. A truck driver, not a lawyer, came up with this. Donald Sterling will be represented by lawyers, not truckers. I'm willing to bet that they can do at least as good a job making a case for him as I am doing right here, and I would even go so far as to suggest that they might do better. Hard to imagine, I know, but it is possible.

  • NBA and Race Relations

    The verdict is in. Donald Sterling is banned from life from the NBA. He cannot run his team nor attend his (or any other NBA) games or any NBA meetings. Furthermore, new Commissioner Adam Silver has announced that the league owners will be meeting to vote on taking the Clippers away from Sterling. He also claims to have talked to a few of the owners and claims that he has the votes. Wait a second... I thought this guy was supposed to be a genius lawyer. Way to plead guilty to collusion before the deal is even done and open the door to the Sterling antitrust lawsuit that will allow him to keep his team. But I digress.

  • Donald Sterling is a racist, but...

    Author Steve Parry

    Yes, this is the topic of conversation for the day. Did you hear what Donald Sterling said to his girlfriend? He should lose his team. All over sports talk radio, and even into the mainstream sources, this is all I hear. What's my opinion on it? Sports talk show hosts are idiots. That's my opinion on the matter. I say this for two reasons. 1, these are guys whose very living depends on their ability to exercise free speech, yet they want a man to lose his livelihood for expressing an unpopular and undesirable opinion. Catch the irony here? But that aside, there is a much larger issue at hand. To be specific, I am speaking here to Evan Cohen, Steve Phillips, Dan Patrick, and Adam Schein. Would any of you hosts care to swim up from the bottom and deal with the real issue at hand here?

    Two conspiracy theorists die and go to heaven. St. Peter tells them that Heaven is a place of all knowledge, so they can each ask him one question and he will reveal the answer to them. The first one says "Who killed John F. Kennedy?" St. Peter says "Lee Harvey Oswald." The other says "Who was he working with?" St. Peter says "He acted alone." The two of them look at each other and say "Wow! The coverup is bigger than we thought!" But seriously, what keeps this stuff going? Some would say the evidence. Other would say mental illness. I myself am unsure, and I have a hard time really focusing on this one as I didn't live through it. This article is pretty much a starting point for me and a note to self. Steve, debunk this one.

    As with any story, it is hard to say what happened unless you were there yourself. So why do I feel the need to post an article defending Richie Incognito? Because I can recognize a good snow job when I see one, and there is a blizzard coming from Jonathan Martin and company on this deal. Now to be fair, I am well aware that I am in the minority opinion on this one. Chances are if you are reading this you already have an opinion on this topic. Either I am preaching to the choir or I am dealing with a skeptic who wants to get a good chuckle at a brainwashed Dolphins fan defending the indefensible. So while I typically take the approach of building a good case, let me lay the best logical argument I have on you to kick this thing off.

Man uses website Mocospace to rape vicitim

Written by Mona on .

People do things every day to protect themselves from potential harm. They lock their doors, their windows, buy guard dogs, leave lights on outside their homes. There are so many ways that people attempt to secure their environments from potential predatory behavior from strangers.

Yet everyday thousands of people will go online from inside their cozy homes and they will unlock a different kind of door for strangers to enter through. There is nothing more harmful than a false sense of security in a situation where being clandestine is commonly expected.

NY- In May of 2010, on a Sunday afternoon, a 24 year old woman from the website Mocospace.com answered an internet post regarding employment. The "ad"/forum post was looking for a secretary who could work Monday through Friday. The job paid $600.00 an hour and a car would be provide.

When she arrived at her destination, a 53 year old man named Richard Bailey greeted her. He asked her to follow him upstairs to the second floor. He told her it led to his "office".  The woman followed him and when she got up the stairs she began to feel uneasy. The floor was covered in garbage and didn't look like an "office". It looked like an empty apartment. When she began to feel like something was wrong, it was too late. She told Bailey that she was going to leave, but he wasn't going to allow her to go so easily.

For an unspecified amount of time, the woman was at his mercy. He attacked her and then violated her in terrifying and painful ways. She was vaginally and anally raped. Her assault was brutal and painful to say the least.

However, this wasn't Bailey's first sexual offense. In July 1998, he was charged by authorities in Pennsylvania with charges including indecent assault and corruption of a minor. Bailey was on probation when he met, raped and sodomized the woman he met on mocospace.com

Bailey was a registered level one sex offender, serving a six-year term of probation for a sex offense conviction

He had been charged with first-degree rape and second-degree criminal sex act for the attack. Bailey pleaded guilty, in a plea deal in that case, to a lesser charge of sexual misconduct.

A judge sentenced him to six years of probation and then classified him as just a level one sex offender. Level one offenders are considered the lowest risks to commit another sex crime.

March 3, 2011, Bailey plead guilty to two counts of first-degree sexual abuse. He had originally been charged by a grand jury with first-degree rape and predatory sexual assault.

As part of his plea deal, prosecutors have agreed to recommend that the Judge make his sentences in the two separate cases concurrent. However, prosecutors reserved their right to ask for consecutive sentences on the sex abuse charges which could result in a 14-year prison term for Bailey.

“He understands that he could get up to 14 years if the court gives him the maximum sentence,” defense attorney Christopher Privateer said. “He has agreed to take a plea to the two (sex abuse charges) and take his chance at sentencing.”

As a result of his plea, prosecutors will drop the rape charge and a criminal sex act count.

In December, Bailey was convicted after a trial for violating the terms of his state sex offender registration and has been awaiting sentencing on that conviction.

Bailey’s sex offender violation conviction stemmed from his use of a computer without telling his probation officer.
