Violent convict sues Nike for ‘dangerous’ shoes

Lawsuits filed from prison contain some of America’s best fiction.

A recent example: A pimp given a 100-year prison sentence for stomping the face of a man who refused to pay a prostitute is suing Nike for failing to warn him shoes are “potentially dangerous” weapons.

The Oregonian reports Sirgiorgio Clardy, 26, from Portland, beat the man so severely his face required reconstructive surgery. Clardy robbed his victim and then beat the prostitute until she bled from her ears.

Clardy, who has 20 felonies on his record, was convicted of second-degree assault and declared a “dangerous offender.”

In a handwritten, three-page court filing from prison, Clardy claims Nike failed to warn consumers the shoes could be used to cause serious injury or death and wants the Oregon-based company to pay him $100 million for “mental suffering.”

The prisoner alleges he has tried to starve or otherwise kill himself multiple times since being caged like a violent animal.

He also asked a judge to force Nike to include warning labels in their shoes.

Nike has yet to respond to the suit, which will likely be thrown out before the first pitch of baseball season.

During sentencing, a psychologist testified Clardy is “in the 100th percentile of narcissistic criminals” who think they are “smarter, more attractive and superior” than the rest of humanity and said it’s “100 percent” likely he would commit more crimes.

Clardy, who has threatened to rape police officers’ wives and children, is so dangerous a judge ruled it was unsafe for a court-appointed attorney to sit near him at trial.

“It’s not worth it to put my safety at risk, for what they’re paying me to do this,” said Clardy’s attorney, who likely won’t be filing any appeals.

Too early for the race card. He is a criminal who was going to eventually kill somebody simply because he does not appreciate anyone else right to life but his. He is a narcissist of the worse kind.

R.I.P to the young boy who tried to save his disabled uncle during a fire that destroyed their home. Heros come in all ages!

Yes, way too early for Bernie31 to pull the race card, as he usually does.

R.I.P to the 2 small children that were killed by their mother.

Typical liberal…do whatever you want, then when you get caught, take no responsibility and sue a third party that had nothing to do with the crime. The problem is that liberals have appointed too many rabidly liberal judges who could care less about the Constitution. They won’t do the right thing and throw this kind of stuff out of court.

Forget jailing people like this, they need to be shot.

So you have no problem with this incessant and pointless namecalling and back and forth but object to my suggestion that the death penalty for such frivolous lawsuits is appropriate (and thus deleted it)? Come on.

My dad Bernie31 likes him some gay child porn stars in public schools.

He is also a racist and hates whitey even though he can LQQK and clearly see that Sirgiorgio Clardy is Black.

“Clardy, who has 20 felonies on his record…”

He’s 26 and he already has 20 felonies?

So, assuming his first was ~ age 16 he averaged two felonies a year and was still walking around free. Is it any wonder we have so little respect for our justice system.
