Bumfights = Free Expression?

|

As you probably heard, the producers of Bumfights, AKA the Bumfight Krew, were recently arrested on numerous felony charges for the making of Bumfights Volume 1: Cause for Concern. And yes, it's true, they are also being sued. Despite all this nonsense, we at Bumfights would like you to know that the video is still for sale, and as long as there is a 1st Ammendment in this country it's gonna take a helluva lot more than that to shut us down. The BFK would like to thank all of their loyal fans for your support and are currently hard at work on the sequel.

So say the Bumfight Krew as the multiple-felony case against them proceeds.

Their defense: Paying homeless people to sock each other is no different from Hollywood producers getting stunt men to do risky gags. Support for that defense: Homeless man Donald Brennan appeared neither "drunk nor dismayed" when he got "BUMFIGHT" tattooed on his forehead, and was convinced the Krew would make him a star.

The prosecution: The four Krew members committed solicitation of a felony, battery, conspiracy to promote an illegal fight and other offenses. Support for that case: Homeless man Peter LaForte turned down a $20 offer to fight homeless woman Porkchop, but was then attacked by Porkchop, and the subsequent fight ended up in the Bumfights tape.

You decide. Well, actually, a judge will decide…

  1. I prefer Bangbus.com to bumfights

    http://www.bangbus.com

  2. If someone decided not to fight, refused payment, and was attacked anyway, that individual would have a case against their attacker, I would think, but not necessarily the guys that filmed it unless they put the attacker up to it. (Which they may have, for all I know). However, as disturbing a concept as paying homeless people to fight for entertainment is, it isn’t fundamentally different from professional boxing. Just a different pay scale.

  3. There is also a version of the above site that involves coercing straight men into having sex with other men on a bus, then not paying them as promised.

    There is no limit to what people will accept as entertainment.

  4. Mr. First Comment, Bangbus is very fake. Many of the exact same girls on that site have been seen on other porno sites doing their thing for the camera. Sorry.

    Jim, yes, you are correct. It’s just a more declasse version of the entertainment we all watch, unless that example you site is true, of course.

  5. The 1st Amendment was never meant to let loose degenerates upon society.
    The Constitution is not a national suicide pact.
    If people can’t even observe the minimum of moral decency, then it’s ok for court to punish the infantile brats.

  6. toshiro:
    is this site also fake? i dont know what to believe!!!

  7. to mr. nameless above:

    Actually, most people don’t seem to know bangbus is fake, believe it or not. Incredible, as if they wouldn’t be caught by now for “theft of services,” so to say.

    Transhumanism:

    What if some pinkos think the Bible (or Huck Finn) is “oppresive” and then claim “the Constitution is not an blanket excuse for sexists/racists/bigots/whatever” and that they would like it if “the state got them.” I’ve heard this loony argument a _lot_ in the past.

    And how is it any different than yours except on the specifics? Or do you agree with it as well? If not why do you disagree? And I would assert that many more people agree with the pinkos than you, given the treatment differential of Lott and Clinton.

  8. In 1949 in basic training, they had “cigarette fights” at the service club the week before payday. If you agreed to fight, you got a carton of cigarettes just for lasting 3 rounds, and I think 3 cartons if you won. A cigarette fight was when someone ran away from the other boxer for all 3 rounds.
    I never did one. Bull Durham was good enough for me.

  9. Transhuman, if the 1st amendement was intended to be used to protect speech and expression that you find objectional, then tell just what was it intended to do?

  10. Whoops, take two:

    Transhuman, if the 1st amendement was not intended to be used to protect speech and expression that you find objectional, then tell just what was it intended to do?

  11. Anyone looking for the video for cheap? Check out auctionathome.com or email
