I never liked bananas

 

The racist mind never ceases to disgust me.

The bitch man who threw a banana at Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds in a preseason game in London, Ontario,  has been arrested.  Christopher Moorhouse, 26, did the “Herculean” deed while Simmonds (one of the NHL’s few Black players) was attempting a penalty shot.

The Philadelphia Daily News quoted  London Police Chief Brad Duncan:

“Mr. Moorhouse has been served with a part three summons, and if convicted of this offence – could be liable to a fine of not more than $2,000,” Duncan said. “This is a provincial offense and not a criminal charge, and will be dealt with in the provincial offenses court.

“This incident affected, not only our local community, it was across the national and international plane – and obviously individuals have very strong feelings about what occurred and I just wanted to indicate this individual has expressed remorse, notwithstanding the actions that he undertook, but we don’t want individuals to go beyond what the court will do in terms of the penalty.”

The Chief went on to say that this little “Angel” will not be charged with a hate crime because apparently throwing a banana at a Black man doesn’t meet the criteria under Canadian law.

Sounds like the Ku Klux Klan might want to relocate.

Let’s say for the sake of argument, Mr. Moorhouse didn’t think chucking a banana at a Black man was racist. He should still be kicked in the penis hole for lack of common sense.

The London (Ontario) Free Press:

Police received a lot of tips, including through social media. It was within the last 12 hours that they were able to identify the suspect, Duncan said.

Meanwhile, grandparents of the man charged, said he emotionally “broke down” and turned himself into police Tuesday.

He had wanted to be a police officer, they said.

He should move to Los Angeles. The LAPD would welcome him with open arms.

I never understood interventions. What’s the point of being told you drink too much from a room full of reasons why you drink in the first place?
