Looks like the Clown Prince of the UFC may have learned a sorely-needed lesson in humility. Unfortunately, the lesson master had to be a New York City judge.
Seemingly forgetting that nearly everyone on the planet has a cell camera, Ireland’s Conor “The Notorious” McGregor decided to violently flip-out at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn’s multi-purpose sports arena.
As reported by the New York Post, regardless of his wealth, McGregor is looing at some serious time in prison;
He was charged with felony criminal mischief and misdemeanor counts of assault, attempted assault, menacing and reckless endangerment. He faces as much as seven years in prison, if convicted.
McGregor said nothing in court except, “Yes, your honor” when asked whether he understood terms of the orders of protection against him – barring him from contacting fighters Michael Chiesa and Raymond Borg, who were hit with flying glass.
While the man punched identified as Jason Ledbetter, one of the two UFC fighters just may face a career-ending injury due to the shattered glass. Specifically, glass scratches to the eye;
Borg suffered a cornea abrasion to his left eye and bruising to his left cheek, while Chiesa had cuts to his face and hand – causing their bouts on Saturday night at the Barclays to be canceled.
It’s still unreported the extent of the glass-induced abrasions to Borg’s eye, but it’s a sure bet that glass to the eye is never a good thing.
The mayor of London, the Right Honourable Sadiq Khan once said not all that long ago that the British capital is “the safest global city in the world, and one of the safest cities in the world.”
Careful, Saddie. You might take care that those words don’t sneak up and bite you dead on the six.
Oops… too late.
As reported by Jack Montgomery of Breitbart London, meddy olde London Towne has broken a record versus the Big Apple that the Brits were quite proud of; specifically that New York has annually had a higher murder rate since 1800, Anno Domini.
That’s right, for the past two months in a row, New Yorkers have the edge on not being murdered.
Specifically, during the month of February, London has seen 15 killings as compared to New York’s 14. Even worse (or better, depending which city you live in), during March, London’s murder numbers again edged out New York, 22 killings to 21.
As Breitbart’s Montgomery noted;
The change is partly a consequence of Mayor Khan’s campaign against using stop and search on ethnic minorities, with London police chief Cressida Dick admitting that constables have become “fearful” of confronting suspects as they “might get into trouble or might not be supported if they had a complaint”.
Oh, but it doesn’t end with mere homicide. Montgomery also cites;
London was already the more dangerous of the two cities for almost every other category of violent and sexual crime
Londoners are six times more likely to be burgled than New Yorkers
Three times more likely to be raped than New Yorkers
One and a half times more likely to be robbed than New Yorkers
But fret not, Saddie Khan is busy keeping himself fighting crime. As seen in the video below, he’s doing what he can to pass newer and more strict regulation from tech companies to ban “racist social media messages”.
UPDATE:The Clinton campaign tells the press that instead of going to a hospital as earlier reported, she was instead taken to her daughter’s Manhattan apartment. As reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, “Clinton’s campaign says the former secretary of state left the morning ceremony after a 90-minute visit. They say she ‘felt overheated’ and left for the nearby apartment. Her campaign has not offer additional details, including whether Clinton required medical attention.”
“A lot of us are World War II vets and fathers and Purple Hearts. We’re from a generation that believes the flag over everything.” – Electrician Morty Grutman, quoted in the New York Post, May 9, 1970.
What has been largely forgotten by both the mainstream media and academia nation-wide, today marks the 44th anniversary of New York City’s pivotal “Hard Hat Riot” what began as a violent reaction from a relative handful of NYC construction workers, many of whom were World War II, Korea War and Viet-Nam War veterans, against a rather large number of anti-Vietnam War protesters. As reported by the New York Times on May 9, 1970, the Wall Street Journal on May 11, 1970, and also the Vancouver (Canada) Sun on May 20, 2970, an estimated two hundred “Hard Hats” battled roughly one thousand antiwar protesters literally in the shadows of the New York Stock Exchange.
Amid cries of “oh, Madonn’!” and “whadda cafone!” New York City’s brand spanking new mayor Bill de Blasio may have just had a honeymoon with Gotham voters shorter than any of Rock Hudson’s marriages, as reported by ABC News on Jan. 10, 2014.
Nonnas from Staten Island to the Bronx swooned whilst goombas steamed as the unrepentant fan of everything Marxist dug into what appeared to be a Pizza Margherita with no less than a knife and fork.
Al-Qaeda terrorist Abu Hamza (aka: “Doctor Hook” and “The Hate Cleric” by the British press) is complaining to a federal judge in New York that his current accommodations aren’t quite up to snuff by his standards, as reported by the New York Daily News on Nov. 26, 2013.
Claiming he lost his hands fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan in the 1980s, Hamza ordered his taxpayer-funded team of lawyers inform the judge that the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan just isn’t cutting it.
Seeking transfer to a special medical prison in Devens, Mass., one of his lawyers, Lindsay Lewis informed the court, “his arms are infected, and this is an issue that needs to be resolved at a medical center.”
