Joe Francis of "Girls Gone Wild" in jail for tax evasion

edited April 2007 in Debate and/or Discourse
I don't know if everyone read the article on him posted here earlier, but he was indicted for tax evasion:

http://www.showbuzz.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/04/11/people_hot_water/main2673413.shtml

Then he got arrested, tried to bribe a guard with $100 for a bottle of water, and they found drugs in his cell:

Frankly, I'm glad this bag full of douche is getting what's coming to him. Discuss!

    Yes and also assaulted a journalist to try to coerce her into having sex with him and has pretty much raped countless women and girls who aren't all legal.

    Actually, to get off topic a little bit, but it's hard to find porn to fully enjoy, because it's usually obvious that either one party is enjoying it, or neither party is.

    The videos are hugely popular with frat-guys.

    Yes. But the problem here is that even if we pretend that all (or any) of this is going to stick and it ends the GGW product-line, the market isn't going to disappear, and the market is huge and doesn't see women or girls as people. Getting rid of Joe Francis is important but getting rid of the market is more important.

    Thank God. The GGW party bus always comes to University of Iowa and goto the bars. Because of that, cover charge is like $30 that night to watch fatties strip for a cameraman.

    One of the sad things about that is that it only proves that frat life is not like that if they have to watch it on TV.

    It's just kind of a sad pitiful image. They all joined the frat for the lifestyle, then the all sit around watching it happening somewhere else.

    One time I was at the video store with some friends, one of us was in the "adult" section sniggering like a 12-year-old when we heard

    "HOLY SHIT! COME LOOK AT THIS!"

    He was holding up a copy of GGW. On the cover was another friend's little sister. He wasn't there to see, unfortunately. We did rent it however and go over to his apartment to watch.

    True story.



    Aftermath - unfortunately she wasn't actually featured on the video. But when pressed by her big brother (and subsequently, parents) she did, in fact, admit to "going wild" for the camera.

    Edit- bettar?

    Well obviously the way they treat women in those videos is horrible and that Joe Francis guy is a total douche, but them not coming back here is a definite plus
