And were coming right back on the big -- seventy WW LAM at them and dot com. I'm Bob Mitchell in for atomic -- it was morning. Let me get caught up on a couple of text messages first of all we do have some phone lines open if you wanna. Phone minutes to secure a 17866. And -- knowledge of the real interest and and many of you who have been to -- training camp -- -- the saints practices you know what when they get back. Whatever they go when they don't go and just share some great saints training camp memories with -- But let me get caught up a couple of text messages on the subject we have been talking about all morning about. The man who called an eighteen year old man father who caught a two year old men raping his eleven year old son and just beat the capital pulp and another. Talked about is he responsible for the medical bills of the guy that he beat up. An -- if that happens. If this guy needs legal money. Took to fight this or to pay and the and the punt I'll be the first one to senate -- Bob there's little say and you can't beat out of the Bonnie what's in the mine have been sent that touched my kids and I'll give -- my best effort. Operated told my grown children that -- law will take your body on or if he's. Must be a tough grandma mama and daddy does not need to go to. Jail Bob your forgetting jeez look at angry of the temple and people were selling rather than worshipping under the about question. And I would beat the kid myself talked and of course the the -- -- I'm not a bleeding heart this man should be prepared to be held accountable for the consequences. On his actions including. Lawsuits. Medical bills and assault charges also this person is talking. Above the dead. Let the dead should be ready. To be responsible for any medical bills or assault charges against the eighteen year old but he caught. Rape in his eleven Euro -- the text message. With the dead did was not wrong. All right -- we also want to talk about and today. A jury. Slammed the nation's number two cigarette maker of little interest. This is really interest and so kind of -- attention and I'll get to the phones in just the second. But curiously and the nation's number two cigarette maker RJ Reynolds tobacco with 823 point six. Billions. Of the -- 23 point six billion dollar. Punitive damage lawsuit. Plot by the -- belong to a smoker who died of lung cancer in 1996 that the case was one of thousands filed in Florida after the State's Supreme Court in 2006. -- Holly Hunter and 45 billion dollar class action verdict the ruling also said smokers. And their family is the only approve addiction. And that's smoking caused their illness or death. Do you really think smokers should be allowed for using the product they know. It -- remember it was a 1965. But they start putting the labels on cigarette packages that -- smoking is hazardous to your health in 1965. Think it was 1985. -- the put on there that can cause. All lung cancer and heart problem but since 1965. Smokers have been warned that can be hazardous to your health. I'm I'm just not for you when you do something that you know is hazardous to your health. And I'm the same way on. On some of these football players Jordan mostly in the opinion of oil passed out to but he pain pills and a lot of admitted they were hurting so bad. They would take anything to play the game and other blame it on the and the knowledge shouldn't give them all those plain pills. You know right from wrong when you do things like that. So my question is. Should smokers be a walled. To -- For using a product but no there's hazardous to their help to secure what it's seventy. 8668890870. Let's go to two is that -- is that right. How are you mean I'm fine. On previous topic before it started out talking about I -- -- -- going into which we can keep the topic. And -- and a gentleman. -- The -- brought it to you right. -- Lately who deserves the day and be picking you -- a right. -- what my situation where. There actually. Being. Killed in its August property. You know what it's -- legal at that point. You'd probably be arrested. Even though it was on his property. Protected his -- daughter. You know an end to end today it was his son in in in today's. Society. You don't know and and that's that would make all of this -- difficult someone pointed out that there's a good chance of the father of the eighteen year old is going to sue. The father. For a physical damages in medical bills for his son. I've probably would be in jail right now I'd do not think if I walked in and it taste like that. That I liked -- to stop this bad only used his hands and feet. I would of picked up the baseball -- to beat the guys brains and I'm I'm odd because I believed. That my re action at that time I believe that my anger -- -- impulse mine Mike Reynold desire as a dead to protect my child would. Would override all reasoning. Absolutely. I couldn't rely on judicial system to make -- -- decision. From my child I think I'll probably take matters in -- you know well. Right and and I think you don't I think most parents in a situation like this. Would be more than happy to go to jail over that's what it takes. Right. Let me ask yet -- what do you do -- -- do you still have kids that need the child care at all. No I don't plan that -- -- going to. Do you did you go to any procedure to make sure that new we're getting this layperson but this guy that this think -- the news and has got the three errors. Three years. Yeah it is true art. To do a screen -- -- someone you really. -- Jenny appreciate you voting in okay. We have to we're gonna go to Andre Andre how are you this morning. -- -- Can barely hear you. Use of speakerphone. And they're. Out of their own money you need a new cell political. All right so what's what's your -- this morning. How would like to know it didn't propagate and an eighteen year old model for the damages. Yeah he did -- eleven year old and a psychological. And everything -- this. -- Well. The fact that he's eighteen makes him an adult so a -- adult can't -- for another adult. -- -- probably should be able to eighteen year old all the damages -- -- -- -- Well I think. I think it's going to be interest in following what's going to happen here because. The way things go in our society. Is that they tell you how far you can go at it's it's it's kind of like. If if if I were to fund someone in my house by the if I'd have thought about this many -- if -- -- to wake up in the middle of the night. And I saw someone in my house but I did know. If I can get the my gun out shoot them. I'd shoot him and ask questions later I because I would think what do you do and in my home you've got to be here harmony I would shoot them and ask questions later. Probably go to jail probably go to jail but that's what happened. Absolutely one under present -- because that's exactly what I did also. I -- about consequently there. -- -- -- -- -- -- You have you ever been the training camp. No. Or government and we can be on the day was going to be excellent. Absolutely uber -- Kristian -- wondering the sidelines. I'm going -- -- -- -- Thank you so much for voting in. That it's -- well. Let's go to Mike -- matter how are you Mike the -- But merely acted years birds but an exciting show this morning. Ed Bennett then going out there. On -- -- Leonard Christine -- called them couple hours ago are also -- whining about that kind. Oh you mean the guy I have -- locals and Christian caller what but the that's a guy -- it was gone from California but he said the that we that you can't be the judge the judge jury. And executioners. And aunt and the -- should have just held him for the police to yet. Wrong yeah. You know -- -- place on her own and that -- And you could you would. My Mike do you think that part of the problem was is that people that do these type of -- they never wanna take responsibility. I remember we're Basel a couple of months ago. Look -- some kid was was was all one of the somebody else's property. And the at and and they got shot and I mean everybody's yelling and screaming no one it seems to the wants to take responsible -- when they do something wrong. There's always a reason why did the wrong there's always. There -- a victim all I I did it because my mother did this the -- my father did this committee are. You know -- I got the wrong prods in my happy meal at McDonald's something ridiculous like that. Right now are symptomatic of that type of problem -- would society and we going. All people out. There -- -- Don't even go for. However I really don't aren't aren't possible -- -- -- -- -- -- Like you can't change our reparation and -- restored this. You know that really burns me up. -- -- if you agree with this text message that I do Bob the -- that showed the utmost restraint by not -- -- niche while. And I would not charged that folder with a single crime under the circumstances. I would give him blanket immunity and a metal. Mostly in the -- there is wrong or simple minded fools. You'd you'd go with that. I go -- are the acts. Act would go a little bit for I would say there. -- -- -- -- You have -- -- I know much about it beat this guy until and they want to use -- Talk about Sunderland Marcos. Yeah speak your life. -- crime the crime. United this kid it. -- -- -- Morton evil -- is being. Mike I appreciate you voting and worry are going to come back with a more your phone calls a look at the calls green we do have a couple ones -- if you opponent. It's 26 year old late 78 succeed -- finally it's public let's go to David Blake and get the morning news. I was looking ahead David and garlands of the talk in more. About about the potholes in the -- why is it. I mean -- you've been -- a long time at all -- there're some nasty ones out there have been here for Bravo -- you know. Then I -- Tuesday and again when failed. And I don't know what they used but it doesn't last more than a couple of weeks I have a feeling. That if they collected cigarette butts and put them in the pot holes there. Or better doubt they put -- listed in the soft landing -- -- -- question on your suspension but that's raising. Thank you Dave are right we're going to get back to proposals of you who or are just calling. The. Thing that we talked about all morning and what kind of tried to move on a couple of -- but the people wanna talk about I think because people -- a just so outraged and and 90%. Of our policy they would re act. The same way -- you just tuning in and Bob what are you talking about we're talking about a Florida father. He called an eighteen year old Man Ray -- -- eleven year old son. And beat him to the point that he actually called 911. And said the is in a bloody -- Cendant and villains he needs it and come pick him up and actually go on line. And -- of the mug shot of of the eighteen year old -- is -- liked about the -- is his nose was broken and -- all beat -- out there there are people there -- people -- morning. Who or are closely and that the dead. Was gonna have to be ready to face certain consequences if they come down the line including. May be praying the eighteen year old. New medical bills and I mean it it it's an outrage of people and everyone I've talked to a couple people around here say the same thing you know that the that it rage and I would have to imagine. If -- any charges. I would think his father should be able to claim temporary insanity because I know there is no dull moment I'm saying. Level headed man. I've got. Seven grandkids are on ultimately I've got a bunch of them but to -- two kids. Two great grandkids. And I level headed person if I were to witness that if I -- -- walked in and that was going on woman children -- public -- my grandkids. I would go -- and I don't think I would be able to stop at just. Beating the god I think allegedly beating and beating him in eighty until he did move. OK well let's go to Stephen Miller power -- Steve. Steve Steve hung up Phillips go to Kelly Kelly or you. I'm more. I think and plays his only animal that. Well -- that just make that comment on that people. Can't basically crawling and taking that that I have charted on -- against Hamdan. I think people need to realize is that may. Be an eighteen year old. Girl signed. It's been an -- murdered this I would have been back and I think -- green and why did I even stop inmate and college. He said it acquired part then and thankfully and it was so he's locked up to fifteen minutes to baton. Militarily I can't believe that there would be any chart at Pratt began in May and that was it it was cracked it would be curry. The fought the father said that the eighteen year old with a friend of the family and he stood among readers Cody said you're damn lucky boy that I love my god. And accurately he was very fond of this eighteen year old he trusted -- eighteen year old with his son and I mean and I know how I'd fill up I consider over over I don't think I don't think I'd be able controller rage in a situation like. Well I think people. Think that what that would do you enter you're put in that situation and you I don't know it's an ailing it's like aggregate DO. But at any charges brought against the -- and I'm -- LB plenty of people that that would then eight and now it's may and get out of anything that he deal.
