Patti LaBelle Files Countersuit in Beating Case
« on: June 29, 2011, 12:46:48 PM »
HOUSTON (AP) — Veteran R&B diva Patti LaBelle says in a countersuit filed against a West Point cadet who claims she ordered her bodyguards to beat him up outside a Houston airport terminal that the altercation began after the cadet hurled racial insults at her.

But an attorney for the cadet, Richard King, denied his client ever said any racial slurs to LaBelle.

Labelle's version makes more sense. Still, you don't go around beating up folk. The cadet has already gotten the worst end of the deal, his drunk butt got kicked out of West Point. Labelle need to pay the kid and move on. Her son had no business putting his hands on him.

After watching the video I don't see her basis for suing the guy.

Patti,
Do what Bishop Eddie Long did...pay up and keep stepping  :tiptoe: :tiptoe: :tiptoe:

Even if this boy yelled a racial epithet (that nobody other than her son seems to have heard) the law does not allow for him to be punched. The Houston airport probably has the greatest number of security cams than any airport I have been in. I wonder why the cameras did not catch most of the Labelle side of the story?
