I don’t believe that any of these tapes, of a private conversation(s), should have ever been made public, period.
Certainly, release them to a lawyer and law enforcement, but not to the public where they are used to prosecute him in the media.
I am in no way defending what ‘seems’ to be his wild, very likely criminal, reckless, threatening and foolish behavior, but quite frankly, this is none of the public’s or media’s business until it’s been fairly adjudicated in a court of law.
I could be wrong, but I think there used to be a belief in the country that one is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law... and it seems to me that there were also some rules of evidence and other such stuff. But heck, maybe I’m just too old fashion in this world of personal destruction.... at all cost.
Those that commit domestic violence should be dealt with swiftly and harshly, but by the courts, not the damn media.
If this guy ASSAULTED her, regardless of the circumstances, he’s nothing but a lowlife. NO WOMAN or man, should tolerate such behavior, because all too often the victim ends up dead or lives an unhappy life of physical and mental pain and abuse. They become slaves kept in a prison.
Having said all of that, and while I love his artistic abilities, I hope he, as well as his wife see justice, but that becomes difficult, if even possible, when the world has already judged you.
Exactly. How would they find a court to try any case if there had to be a trial.
I think that’s the part I react to. It’s sort of the reverse of “kiss and tell” which just seems classless to me. The way this woman is operating is not the way an abused woman behaves. The psychology of it is all wrong.
That was the whole point, though, to get the public on HER side against him.
It's interesting that his former wife has testified that in their 28 year marriage, he was NEVER abusive to her, or the kids.
