Why the American Justice System Fails; A True Story

I’m not one to judge, but this is just absolutely ridiculous.

On Opening Day of this year, a SF Giants fan was beaten into a coma. Does that ring a bell? I find this act of cruelty hideous; almost inhumane. What would lead you to do such a thing? Does it make you feel “big” to go to a rival ballpark, pick a random fan and beat the living daylights out of him? Or was it a hate crime?

Enough of the questions; now we know the facts. On Monday, June 20th, the suspect Giovanni Ramirez faced a hearing. This hearing was held “to determine whether he should remain in jail for allegedly violating terms of his parole” (Courtesy ESPN.com). What kind of fool has a gun on him when he’s on parole? AND he was nice enough to beat the crap out of Bryan Stow (the SF Giants fan).

I’m hoping for a trial (fair, of course), a conviction, and a sentence of at least 1 year….Comment below and tell me what you think of this.

  1. I wasnt even on parole and I got 6 months for having a gun this dude was on parole and beat a man into a coma thats gotta be a manslaughter charge and if all he gets is a year then it just further proves how messed up the justice system is that man should do at least 5 years

      I thought manslaughter was only if you killed the guy, not assault…But i am probably wrong

      5 years for an assault? Well, combined with the parole offense yea I guess you could justify that

  2. Let me start off by saying as a Dodger fan the whole situation has been terrible. It has had a huge negative effect on the experience of a Dodger game as well. The amount of LAPD there is not very inviting.

    But, as I read on ESPN, it doesn’t sound like this is even the right guy. Obviously I’m not sure if his alibi is true, but if he isn’t the guy I don’t want him to be thrown away. The DA needs to take care of this the right way, and only take someone down if they were a part of it. I don’t want to see a conviction for the sake of a conviction.

      True, I wouldnt want a man to be thrown in jail for no reason…and I did read that this MIGHT not be the right guy

  3. He was already sent back to prison today, for a parole violation.

  4. This incident is terrible for baseball, and terrible for Los Angeles and San Francisco. I don’t mind if it takes a while to find the person guilty of beating up Bryan Stow, but when they do, he/she (I’m not ruling out that it was a woman, although I severely doubt it) should go to jail for at least 1 year.

  5. I think I read this guy was supposed to be convicted for some crime in Nevada, and he was supposedly with his kids on Opening Day at home… I don’t think they have the guy that beat Stowe. LA cops probably just picked someone to take the fall whether it was right or wrong…

  6. its to bad when its at times better to just watch form the safety of your own home, look at the poepl than went to NHL Stanley cup game in Vancover.
