Basketball Player Calls Police During Pickup Game, The Reason Why Sets New Bar For Ridiculousness

Published

It’s pretty common to see fights breakout during pickup basketball games and depending on how rough things get between the players, you might even see police show up to the court to give folks a friendly reminder to cool their tempers.

However, what one player did in Sterling, Virginia is taking things to a ridiculous extreme. Apparently the young man called police after he was fouled, claiming he was fouled too hard.

Feel free to read that again and really let it sink in. This is the world we now live in, folks.

“Today for the first time in my life … I experienced someone call the police because they got fouled hard in basketball,” read a tweet accompanied by a photo of deputies talking with the two players, the station said.

The man who shared the photo declined to give his name but told WTTG the player who called authorities ran into another player who was blocking him — i.e., setting a pick — and the blocked player fell to the court.

The witness said the player who fell down was upset and told the other players he was calling police, the station reported.

“I thought he was joking,” the witness told WTTG. “I thought he was being extra.”

But when the player who fell to the court made his way to the front desk, the station said the other pickup game participants realized he wasn’t joking.

WTTG obtained the call to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office made by an L.A. Fitness employee at the front desk who told the dispatcher the player was “assaulted” on the basketball court.

Here’s the real kicker. Neither individual involved in the incident wanted to press charges or file a report of any kind. Oh and they ended up picking up the game right where they left off.

Now, the question is, why in the world couldn’t these two manage to get along while they were playing and resolve the matter themselves?

This is proof positive that self-government is something that is desperately needed in our culture today in order to ensure that dumb stuff like this do not waste valuable resources the community has need of.

Let’s hope these folks grow up a bit.

He’s right. For once, Joe Biden is right. America is “morally deprived,” he just didn’t mention the people responsible for the decline. Because of far-left policies, this great nation allows women to get away with murder; allows lawbreakers and criminals to become citizens; and hands out “free” money to those unwilling to work. The only problem with Biden’s sentence is that he didn’t use the words “Democrats are” before “morally derived.” Biden blabbered, “I believe we are in a battle for the soul of this nation. And the simple truth is our soul be troubled as long as systemic racism is allowed to persist. We can’t eliminate ‘zimply’ overnight. We can’t ‘eliminateverthing.’ But it’s corrosive, it’s destructive and it’s costly. It costs every American. Not just who felt the sting of racial injustice. We’re not just less of a – We’re not just a nation of morally deprived because of systemic racism. We’re also less prosperous. We’re less successful. We’re less secure.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=33&v=OM6qa7WgFoU&feature=emb_title From Fox News: Biden revealed the federal government will purchase an additional 100 million doses of vaccine each from Pfizer and Moderna as part of its effort to ramp up the unprecedented vaccination drive. Even with the acquisition of more vaccine supplies, Biden warned that distribution will take time and other precautions, such as wearing masks, should remain a priority for Americans. “The brutal truth is, it’s going to take months before we can the majority of Americans vaccinated – months,” Biden said. “In the next few months, masks, not vaccines, are the best defense against COVID-19. Experts say that wearing masks from now just until April would save 50,000 lives that otherwise would pass away if we don’t wear these masks.” Sound off on Joe in the comments section…

He just loves America so much.

President Goofy said some pretty silly things about America and the Trump Administration on Tuesday afternoon. Better get used to hearing that. Unfortunately, whether we like it or not – or whether the country can hang on long enough – we’re stuck with Joe and Kamala. These people and their supporters loathe America. It couldn’t be clearer. WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1354147571552440320 https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1354149480367595521 Reaction from Right Scoop: Americans have not bought into a zero sum game and that’s not how America operates. But this is the bizarrely skewed version of America that Democrats want Americans to believe is happening. Which is why they always drag out this tired and very dishonest propaganda. One of the things that makes America great is that everyone in this country has the opportunity to succeed as long as government stays out of the way. It doesn’t matter if someone grows up in poverty or with a silver spoon in their mouth. Just look at Ben Carson as a great example! Joe is attempting to make it clear that he will be the most “progressive” president this country has ever seen. Not good. Not good at all.
