Jeff Monson charged with mischief; ESPN not an accomplice

By Maggie Hendricks
Jeff Monson is either really dumb or really smart. I'm leaning towards the latter.
The fighter, who last appeared in the Mixed Fighting Alliance, winning over Ricco Rodriguez in December, has a warrant against him for defacing the Capitol building in Olympia, Wash. This warrant was issued after pictures of him painting an anarchist symbol on the building appeared in ESPN the Magazine.
See, Monson is an outspoken anarchist. He has said many times that he wants to do away with the social hierarchies that govern our world. The best way for Monson to share these theories is through the mass media, so publicity is his friend.
Is Monson so dumb that he would expect ESPN to not use photographs of him committing a crime? Of course not. This is a man with a Master's degree in psychology. He understands the ramifications of civil disobedience. If he didn't want attention brought to his cause, he would have asked ESPN to photograph him sitting at home, enjoying dinner.
Monson was charged with first-degree malicious mischief, a crime that carries a maximum penalty of a $20,000 fine and 10 years in prison. ESPN did not do him a favor by running that picture, but it's not their job to protect athletes. It's their job to cover them, a fact which Monson has used to make sure that everyone is discussing his cause today.

How would you like to be the cop serving that warrant?

He just got arrested for beating up some chick.

Talk about a fall from grace.

^ That's not what happened. He got in bad argument with his now ex-girlfriend after she found out he was cheating on her and threw his cell out of her moving car. When he found out later at her house about the cellphone he went crazy and broke a bunch of shit at her house and pushed her. She called the cops and he was arrested. I'm not defending the guy, but he did not 'beat up some chick.' She'd be in the hospital if he beat her up..Pushing her is definitely not ok by any standards, but lets not embellish...Now he's in jail in NC and probably will be extradited to WA for those mischief charges or whatever.
