Putting the war in war wonton soup - glad he was busted. Egg on the face of PA, who love to brag about their famous resident. What a long, miserable cab ride for the victim. I'm sorry for his injuries - it sounds awful. I hope that he successfully recovers & that Harris pays the price. Really? Soy sauce & stolen undies? Grow up!

Who wants to bet that the main reason the media is jumping all over this story is because it involves a gay pro football player? Are the victims of domestic violence usually identified by name by the press?

Yes, they sometimes are, unfortunately. I'm glad the story came out & I think it has little to do w/his being gay. Remember Barry Bonds's son getting violent w/his mom? She was named. I think it'd be good to hear from the media though as to why the victim is named here. Maybe due to the civil case?

This is consistent behavior for our District Attorney.

Look to race and not being a member of the Blue Team, if this was a white 47 year old CHP officer causing head injury to his wife in front of the children, he would dismiss the case.

That's right nake a race issue out of issue. Peace officers convicted of domestic violance would be fired from his job. Can't carry a gun. Should be an interesting case.

Domestic Violence is a very serious issue

The victim in this matter suffered very serious wounds which required metal implants to his face and skull.

Why is the suspect out on just $75,000 bail?

He is a potential serious threat to the PA/MP community and should be in Jail until the conclusion of his trial.

At the very least he should be under house arrest with an ankle monitor

-curfew and mandatory drug testing until the verdict
