Perspective for your consideration …What does it look like when it’s fixed…?
This article in the 9-19-08 issue of the Arizona Republic entitled … LAW OK’ING FIERCER ARIZ CAGE FIGHTS SPURS CLASH …
Welcome to Arizona’s version of Rome’s theater where the lions fed on the flesh of humans – blood sport – it was. Our Arizona version involves only humans beating and punching another human into submission or a stupor or even death.
I find myself asking what purpose “cage fighting” serves…? How did we in Arizona become so blood thirsty…? What redeeming quality does cage fight have…? Perhaps it is reflective of that small portion of our population which condones “rooster” fighting, another blood sport to entertain us…?
What leads one to choose to witness another human beaten, kicked, battered and bludgeoned into submission…?
To pay an admission fee to witness such savagery makes understandable the brutality “we” chose to inflict upon helpless individuals in Abu Graibh prison.
Though not directly a part of this cage fighting topic we should be cognizant of the recent tragic death of a young man fighting at an event deliberated staged on Indian reservation negating the laws of the state of Arizona and in this case rules governing how these fights were to be conducted. Might it be possible this money driven decision played a hand in the tragic death of this young combatant fighting in what was billed as a charity event…?
This is how Arizona chooses to depict the nobility of man…?
And let me be even a bit bolder, I am most willing to present and discuss any water issue before any audience in Arizona where open full disclosure and two way dialog is permitted.
