Ban Artest from the NBA

Sacramento Kings forward Ron Artest was arrested Monday after a woman called 911 from his home saying she had been assaulted. Does this surprise anyone?  This guy is a fool. His fake smile makes me cringe. Living In Detroit it makes me even sicker to see the man responsible for the “Basketbrawl” at The Palace a few years back is still at it. Why didn’t you swing at Big Ben, Ron? You had no problem swinging at 5′-10″ fans. Now your turing your anger problems on a woman. This man had a huge track record BEFORE that night at The Palace.  You are a class act Mr. Artest. But have no fear, just say your sorry and look like you mean it, and you will just get another slap on the wrist. No jail time will happen, maybe a fine, and good ol community service.  This makes me sick.  I love sports but the preferential treatment these athletes get is beyond me. Put this guy in jail like you would any hard blue-collar worker and see how he likes it. My job wouldn’t put up with me getting in trouble or arrested every six months, but I guess the NBA does.
