OK. Now if a parent WITHOUT what lawyers call "predicate" (a past history of the same criminal
behavior) did that ONCE (that we KNOW about, of course) MAYBE it would only be "a person having a bad day". But given Petr's history, it was child abuse AND menacing, both crimes
(esp. with a "captive victim").
NED wants to host international criminal trials in Den Haag? OK with me. But Is It so jealous of its neighbor To The south that "anything goes" re. developing a tennis rival to Kim and Juju?
And Again Linda, you're a very smart person. So when you selectively omit WHAT Petr did (@ least) "...1 time in 6 months " you're being "too clever by half".
Capfan, I accept that you're sincere about the way Jen was used As A kid. However, NEITHER you nor Linda answered the ova-all point about "virtual prostitution": various fan groups on this board having a "...Win Whatever..." attitude, whether ignoring Patty's Problem's, Dani's eating disorder, EVEN Lina's (hopefully not life-endangering) ailment, etc. Do note: THE PLAYERS ARE PEOPLE FIRST!!!
Lets discuss Capfan's point that Petr deserves a 2nd chance. As A public figure, does he not have a moral obligation
Come Clean (instead of blowing up @ reporters as in the NOS documentary)? And re. the non-reply thing, you contradict yourelf, Linda:
"I just didn't reply to your post because I don't know anything about Petr's behaviour right now. I suppose that means good news because if I would have misbehaved I might have heard it."
(My post was mainly complimenting her strong return, NOT about Petr).
The reason we post in Dutch is because there's hardly anyone who doesn't speak our language in here - you pop in sometimes, so does Aaron but it's not much. I guess it's natural to talk our own language then."
(You had a "tourist visitor" you know. If you get so few, that's all the more
reason to Show Some hospitality).
You're saying we don't respect foreigners in here? Because once nobody replied to your post? That is sad Plus, we hardly have any more info about Misa than you anyway. Dutch media isn't much tennis orientated.
(Add my two replies above together
Linda, you can parse sentences from now until Anna K. wins a Slam, but it doesn't change the sum total of this little 3 way debate: That The Facts Fully support what I posted, regardless of what's popular, what ppl may say about why I raised all this, etc.
