    Tell you what boys and girls, no need to make your own mind up, believe me he’s a bad man.
    Whereas
    journalist Joel Goodman, he’s a good man.
    I have no idea of what occurred but the article has already cast judgement.

    1. @Alan – It’s not hard to find out exactly what happened if you make the effort. The whole thing from start to finish was caught on video.
