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.
The wise man builds upon, and acknowledges, the contributions of those who came before.

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

This is the beginning of Global Testonikeular War.
Have you tried the Internet? It's made out of millions of people missing the point of everything and then getting angry about it.
