Does Lawrence Taylor Have any remorse?

Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor had sex with an underage prostitute. He received 6 years probation and he is now a registered sex offender. Yesterday he appeared on Fox News with Shepard Smith. Taylor seemed to be almost flippant in his response to questions regarding have sex with a child. He simply described her as a “working girl.” Did Taylor receive celebrity justice? Tell me what you think.

    Lawrence Taylor was clearly remorseless for his actions. That entire interview revealed what a pathetic individual he is though it was very comical. He said that “she wasn’t a school girl getting off the school bus”. And another classic was “I don’t card them”, revealing that this has been a routine occurrence. No pity here.

    There is no such thing as celebrity justice. The only justice there is in the legal system is monetary justice. If a defendant has the financial wherewithal to engage the appropriate individuals whether directly or indirectly in his defense, his chance of purchasing the desired outcome increases immensely. It is not a function of the defendant’s race, social status, celebrity status or cultural background. It often appears that justice is related to those characteristics but the reality is that wealth is related to those characteristics.

    There was also a philosophical lesson in that interview. Soliciting prostitutes is “like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get”.

    I do not think that LT believes he did anything wrong, so he won’t be remorseful. I agree his biggest challenge is going to be dealing with his wife. As for the young lady involved in this incident, she says that she is not a prostitute, she’s a victim. If she went to his room and had sex with him and got money for it, she’s a prostitute. If she was “forced” to go into the room, what stopped her from saying, “Mr. Taylor, I’m being abused and forced to do this! Please help me!”? Anyone with $300 is able to spend the money to make a phone call. I believe they both got what they were looking for in the transaction. That doesn’t make it right, it just makes it true.
