Toughts On Patti Labelles Lawsuit

Sat Jul 23, 2011 7:37 pm

For those who have not herd the story, a West Point foot ball player Richard King, was on his cell phone at IAH. He was standing next to R&B legend, Patti LaBelle limo. Patti LaBelle rolled down her window and told her body guards to beat the West Point foot ball player up. After King was taken to the Hospital, Miss Labelle took photos with a cop in Mr King blood. Now Patti Labelle bodyguards say that King threw the first punch, and if you look closely at the video, it looked like King did throw the first punch. So what are your thoughts on this case?

It's hard to say not knowing what really happened, even though most of it is on camera, although three bodyguards beating the crap out of one unarmed person is excessive. What I will say is the actions of the HPD are par for the course.

I don't know about that. It appears to me, the king just had his phone up to his ear, and then all of sudden there's a scuffle. There must be more to this than what's being told. What's third side to the story?

Just watched the full version of the CCTV video on youtube and King looks like he's under the influence of something as he's walking towards the limo. From the time he walks by the parked bus/coach he appears to be staggering a little and is not walking in a straight line. Then as he is confronted by the security guards he shoves one of them and then he's hit. The other question that needs to be asked is why he left the scene of a supposed crime if he felt he was the victim? Unless he knew at the time or felt he was to blame for the 'kick-off' maybe?

Also, it seems pretty harsh that he got thrown out of Westpoint (?) too on the surface of things unless their own investigation (if they had one) revealed he was indeed to blame one way or another.

Soon enough time will tell - if it goes to court and witnesses are called.

They say there is always three sides to every story, hers, his and the truth.
