I noticed something else. Every time Melo went to the free throw line the Staples Center crowd started chanting "DUI! DUI!" My first thought: That's low. My second thought was a little more profound: How are you going to rip on a guy for getting a DUI when you cheer for a rapist every night? I'm only in law school, so I'm not sure, but isn't a DUI a misdemeanor while rape is a felony? I don't know. Somebody will pipe up and say that Kobe was exonerated. Yes he was, falsely exonerated. Let's see, his accuser mysteriously drops all charges one day and Kobe is free to go. Shocker. Probably no money changed hands in that development.
Nothing is going to come of Melo's DUI, does that mean it didn't happen? Shit no. I'm not trying to absolve Melo of any wrongdoing. I'm just pointing out the hypocrisy of fans. I'm also going to throw this out there: How many of you have driven drunk? How many of you have committed rape? As another matter, how many of the fans at that game drove home over the legal limit?
