Dodgers Blame the Victim
As if the Los Angeles Dodgers didn’t have enough negative press on their plate already, here’s something to add to the ever increasing hatred piling on the flailing team.
They are saying we’re 100 percent liable. But does that mean Norwood and Sanchez, who beat this guy up, have no liability? And, does it mean Mr. Stow himself has no liability?
That’s owner Frank McCourt’s lawyer Jerome Jackson, speaking about Bryan Stow, who was beaten nearly to death by a couple of thugs in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium on opening day.
“You’re saying to the jury, ‘They (the Stow family) are saying we’re 100 percent liable. But does that mean (Marvin) Norwood and (Louis) Sanchez, who beat this guy up, have no liability? And, does it mean Mr. Stow himself has no liability?’
The Stow family believes reduces security and negligence, among other factors, contributed to the fact that Stow was beaten on the team’s property. The brought a lawsuit against the Dodgers and McCourt decided to countersue, claiming the Dodger are in no way responsible for the attack, that the attackers themselves are (we’ll give him that) and that Stow should be assigned some responsibility for his own horrible beating, and the Dodgers should be absolved of blame.
Does it mean Mr. Stow himself has no responsibility?
Frank McCourt is a bad, bad man.
