Troubled Frostee Rucker will be "arraigned today in Los Angeles on charges of spousal battery and vandalism". His lawyer contends that he's innocent of his current charges and makes the point that his previous problems with beating women are a result of "questionable judgment when it comes to the opposite sex." Whatever. Just because he's a Bengal doesn't mean I should stand behind his defense. Even players in the NFL should be held to an ethical standard. If you get in trouble once, then O.K. benefit of the doubt should be expressed. Twice? Three times? No, that's just scum; and we have no use for scum.
