I want to make it clear, I was wrong. I have been arrested I think four times for hitting fans. I was wrong. But I was never convicted because I settled. I can't trust the judicial system in America. I'm more mature now and I was wrong. At the time I felt like I was right and I know Russ thought at the time he was right but there is no good ending. If I hit one of those people and hurt them badly. Thank goodness I never hurt anybody. I felt like at the moment I was mad but now that I am older and mature I was wrong.
