Clardy v Nike.

Postby Flatpointhigh » Sat Jan 11, 2014 6:41 pm

Who knew nikes were weaponized?

Sirgiorgiro Clardy claims Nike should have placed a label in his Jordan shoes warning consumers that they could be used as a dangerous weapon. He was wearing a pair when he repeatedly stomped the face of a john who was trying to leave a Portland hotel without paying Clardy's prostitute in June 2012.Jurors early in 2013 found him guilty of second-degree assault for using his Jordans -- a dangerous weapon -- to beat the john's face to a pulp. The man required stitches and plastic surgery on his nose.

As expensive as Nikes are you'd expect to be getting some bang for your buck.

Oh I dunno, I live in Nikes but I get them during sales at the online Nike store. Not too much ...

Nike was weaponized years ago.There were nuclear-armed Nike Ajax and Nike Hercules in the hills of Chatsworth, as well in Malibu near a famous FEMA camp.

Nike launched their product with the Redstone line. Things were a bit shaky back in those days.
