Blah blah blah....
It's not "refusing to face the reality of the situation"
It's being able to view the video dozens of times and judging what happened and looking at the way they act and talk to each other... At first I
thought "Great, you go old man" but having studied the video many times and listened to Tommy in the videos after and knowing that he has a history
of mental problems and is clearly a liar, perhaps paranoid schizophrenic.... I have come to the conclusion that I was wrong at first and now believe
that EBM was the instigator.
Doesn't surprise me that you would be defending EBM.
In fact most of the ATS racists have been seen in this thread, isn't that great
Yes... Michael shout have left it... they both should have known better.
But I'm guessing when someone starts spouting racist crap.... asking you for a shoe-shine, logic and a calm disposition kind of disappear.
If you honestly believe what Tommy is saying in the videos, even with the contradictions in Every single video
then I can't really make you
change your mind.
In fact, I know your mind is firmly made up.
Tommy has a history of mental illness and clearly provoked the guy, even just in the clip we see... I don't even think I would want to see what
happened before that.
And I don't think Michael should go to jail, he was provoked.... racist/hateful/derogatory speech was used... and he was pissed off... he threw the
first punch and unfortunately, EBM was hoping he would do that, and once he did, that was it.
I agree... he was wrong to throw the first punch, But I think if I was in his situation, I would have been pretty pissed off too.
Perhaps not enough to throw a punch, but hey... everyone is different.
Even straight after... Tommy (EBM) is saying "he hit me in the face" (when he clearly didn't) and realises that perhaps he could have gone a bit
too far... and now on every video talks about a knife being used on him... and the fact the guy is a Drug dealer, Thief and Murderer (when he's
not)...... he is Mental
and a Liar
and the evidence is in all the videos posted.
I don't need to argue/debate this with you because I know your views... I've seen them on every racist thread on ATS.
You and Bombeni should chat amongst yourselves...
Birds of a Feather......
