Feel sorry for Tony Farmer ? Don’t !

Dear Reader,

It has come to my attention that a young man broke up with his girlfriend, it is a rather sad thing which sadly happens every now and then. But rather than taking it like a man he choose to beat the living daylights out of the young lady. A film of what he did can be seen here.

I think that the judge gave him quite a light sentence of only three years, I also hold the view that Tony Farmer is a thug who made a choice to commit a violent crime.

I find it interesting and disturbing that at least one sports writer seems to write up the event as if it is a shame for Tony Farmer that he is going to jail. I think it is high time that we stop allowing sports stars to ignore the same moral and legal norms as those which apply to the rest of the population.

Maybe as these sports stars are role models for many people the jail sentances should be made longer to make an example of them.

I would be interested to know if Mr Farmer will be allowed to finish high school in prison and then apply to play basket ball at university again.
