Rampage trial delayed

Goddamn is the legal system retarded. Quinton Jackson’s highway fiasco went down way back in July, and pre-trail was only supposed to start today. But that wasn’t enough of a delay:

The pre-trial hearing scheduled for Thursday for former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has been reset to Oct. 24. Jackson and his attorney, Carol Lavacot, were present in court, but the Orange County chief prosecutor, Keith Bogardus, was held up in a preliminary hearing for another case and unable to attend, necessitating the postponement.

The pre-trial hearing is where parties are brought together to lay out future court dates for the proceedings. It is also an opportunity for the defense to change its plea.

A preliminary examination, where the prosecution presents its evidence in the case to the court, had been scheduled for Nov. 30. That date will also be rescheduled – although that date has not yet been determined – as Jackson will be in England on that date preparing for his Dec. 27 bout with Wanderlei Silva.

How fucking hard is it to be like “Mr Jackson, was that you in the fucking monster truck? Yes? And what’s your excuse? You thought you were God? And the Secret? Yeah … guilty. NEXT!”

It must be very hard indeed because I doubt that’s gonna happen and I doubt Jackson will get much other than a slap on the wrist. Again, I’m torn … I like Rampage and would rather see him in THE cage rather than A cage, if you know what I’m saying. Still, the dude went nuts and endangered the lives of a shitload of people. That shit just isn’t cool.
