Posted on 02/28/2011 1:21:21 PM PST by ConservativeStatement
The attorney for ESPN senior writer Howard Bryant who was arrested over the weekend for allegedly assaulting his estranged wife outside a pizza shop in front of their 6-year-old son said the sports scribe was busted because he is black.
State police said Bryant, 42, put up a fight and struck a trooper with his elbow when they tried to arrest him after witnesses said he roughed up his wife outside a pizza shop shortly after noon Saturday in the small western Massachusetts town of Buckland.

So this lawyer is saying that a black man can beat the crap out of his wife in public and can’t get arrested for battery because to do so would be racist. Okay, I get it.
These people are insane.
Special protections have to stop or the Constitution is moot. America is already on the decline because of it.
Just moments after he had to witness his father assaulting his mother.
Actually, it’s coming to that.
See the “restorative justice” thread today.
Seattle has just that policy - “oppressed minorities” will not be prosecuted for crime.
Apparently the Buckland police acted stupidly.
I always...always expect the jesse jackson RACE CARD to be flipped in these situations.
Maybe she’s a total bee-yotch.
Law of the jungle from "da hood" takes over angry young black men and they just GOTTA assult some child or wife/girl friend, or some elderly person. They would never dare attack some guy who's 6'2" around 180-200 lbs. Law to Goodness, they might get hurt then!
Charges will be dropped -- it's racist, anyone can see that, file criminal assult charges against the arresting officer instead for civil rights violations.
I didn’t get stopped and arrested Friday night because I am white.
I’m gonna sue my local police department.
What a dolt.
I wonder if cops are part of that “oppressed minority” - we had a cop in Seattle shoot a homeless American Indian who was walking down the street whittling on a piece of wood. The cop told him to drop the knife, the guy turned around and then “bangbangbangbangbang” shot the guy five times in the chest. I’ve been trying to find the update about the cop; not sure but I think he was exonerated in instance and not in the other.
Phillies pitcher Brett Myers took the opportunity to smack his wife around near Fenway Park in Boston. Looks mighty White to me. Yes, he was arrested.
I thought Rush was the designates ESPN racist
I wonder if his wife is black or white.
Apparently the India was deaf, as well, so he didn’t hear the command to put down the knife.
Bryants wife is Caucasian.
That’s true also. BTW, we didn’t have Native Americans until the Interior Department started classifying Americans. We all became hyphenated then, and, we’re the only country to do so. My American Indian friends like to be called by their tribe.
Does he do commentating on football like with Bradshaw or?
ESPN has quite the cast of characters.
Harold McRae sexually harassing co-workers, Peter Kornheiser making sexist comments about a co-worker, and now Bryant assaulting his estranged wife.
Professional victim ping. (I’d start such a ping list, but it’d be HUGE... I don’t have the desire)
In front of their child,
Well isn’t that special.
Nice example ya p.o.s.
Wife should take a ball bat to his ass.
He shouldn’t have been racing.
Get the names right. It was Harold Reynolds (now at MLB Network) and Tony Kornheiser. But that's just the surface. What about Gary Miller urinating in public, Steve Phillips and his stalker mistress and Jay Mariotti's assault?
Miss this line in the story?
Bryants wife is Caucasian
Oh, so it’s a hate crime. Yes, that is weird that the media didn’t pick up on the hate crime angle. So weird.
Its socially correct for a black man or former black athlete to abuse a white woman. OJ did it and got the sympathy of the majority of blacks throughout the US.
Somebody forgot Sean Salisbury and his phone pics.
Next he will claim he a moslem! That should be his freedom ticket. After all, his honor was at stake!
Yeah well, just like that guy who whacked off his wife’s head in an honor killing. The liberal media said there was no Muslim connection. So if he does claim he’s a Muzzie then ??
His wife Veronique Bryant added in a statement: "This is all so unfair. There was no investigation. The police made assumptions about my husband that weren't true. I was never abused or in fear of Howard on that day or any other day. I wasn't running from him or trying to get away from him. The police weren't listening to me and they attacked him with violence with our 6-year-old watching."
And the person who was suspended for comments about Jesus. This FR thread mentions her name and tirade...
Looks like he needs a foreskin...
