Not a ton of funny in this post, but I had to say something about the recent troubles of Ben Rothlisberger. For those who don't know, Ben is the starting quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has recently been accused of rape, but was not charged due to evidence issues, namely Georgia's rape laws requiring evidence of 'forcible penetration.' So despite bruising and lacerations on the victims genitals, there was not enough to charge Ben. Which is too bad, because the police report is damning. Adding to it, this is not the first time that someone has accused Ben of being a predator and a creep, but this is beginning to show a pattern of behavior.
Why bring this up? Well, where is the outrage in the general public? The NFL outlets are mixed, but I expect that. Society was quick to try and lynch Michael Vick for his actions with the dogs, but Ben rapes women. Without remorse... he should rot in hell, or at least a prison cell somewhere. He'll eventually get to prison, but the sad thing is that he will ruin more lives until that day.
The picture above should have been a mug shot.
