Well fuck, what the hell am I supposed to do with 200 “Free Din” shirts now? The big news today is that all charges relating to a smoker Din Thomas threw last month have been dropped. As a nice plus, Florida has deemed that smokers are actually legal under Florida law:
Hendricks said several things factored into the decision, including an exception to the “prohibited competitions” statute for training.
He said if the fighter or participants were students of Thomas’ school, and the purpose of the school is to teach martial arts, then they meet the exception to the law.
So how about we start up a ‘school’ where we learn how to fight, and we all fight eachother every week in the basement of a bar? And then when the cops come I’ll vomit blood all over them and scream “YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE I’VE BEEN, LOU! YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE I’VE BEEN!” Sounds like that applies under Florida’s training statute too.
Bad news for Din though is he was downgraded in the newspaper articles from “almost a legend in the ultimate fighting world” to “a nationally-renowned mixed martial arts fighter” in this latest article. I guess it’s true … people just love a bad boy.
Oh, and lets hope California gets it’s head out of it’s ass too. This ‘cracking down on smokers’ nonsense is retarded.
