    Savage attack in Kiwi Jesse Ryder

    Bad news for NZ cricket with returning star Jesse Ryder bashed by four men.
    Skull fractures and in a coma. Reports suggest he may not recover.

    A genuine tragedy, as Jesse Ryder savagely bashed | The Roar
    The word ‘tragedy’ is thrown around a lot in sport. For once it’s warranted, as New Zealand batsman Jesse Ryder was beaten into a coma last night.
    Ryder was set upon by four men in an apparently unprovoked attack outside a restaurant in the Christchurch suburb of Merivale.
    He is currently in intensive care, with a fractured skull and a range of internal injuries.
    Witnesses have all expressed bemusement as to how the bashing began, with a series of punches inside the venue’s courtyard soon spilling over into the street, where Ryder was surrounded, beaten and kicked as he lay on the ground.
    One witness was also sure that the attackers knew Ryder’s identity.
    The news is devastatingly unfair. Where the Ryder of the past was suspended from the New Zealand several times over alcohol-related incidents, the batsman had taken a sabbatical from international cricket and was trying to address his issues with drinking.
    He seemed to have made good progress, with an in-form and happy domestic season, and looked set to come back stronger and better for the Black Caps when his self-imposed exile ended.
    He was also set to fly out to India tomorrow to begin his Indian Premier League contract with the Delhi Daredevils under captain Mahela Jayawardene.
    Even in the very best-case scenario, the attack will cost Ryder potentially the highest pay-day of his career, with that contract worth over $300,000 New Zealand dollars.

    ^ hookes may have provoked the incident a little more than Jesse according to reports.

    Both cases are an example of how senseless violence is a big problem in western ( and allegedly ) civilized countries ..

    We want our sheeple to be well behaved, orderly and reliable automatons living life by proxy (sports stars, models, actors etc)- so why do we feed them alcohol? Probably better to bring back Prohibition, demonise the demon, and let them smoke weed instead.
