Maybe? But so’s people thinking that violent assault doesn’t real because the victims are bad people. I’m not super worried about charges from something 25 years ago; look up “statute of limitations”.
if i really did kill the guy, i need to face the music. i don’t know if i had the guts to turn myself in when i was a scared kid, if i’d seen in the papers that someone died. i like to think i did. but i certainly do now. it seems very likely he lived. i didn’t hear of a death, and i don’t think it would’ve gone unreported. but if he did i need to apologize to his family.
i was a dumb kid and thought banging his head on the wall would just cleanly knock him out like it does in the movies. i didn’t mean to do more than that. i don’t think i’d get 20 to life or anything. but the point is, i’m not trying to evade the consequences. i don’t talk about it because it’s incredibly fucking upsetting, not because i’m trying to hide my crime. i brought it up to stress that fistfights aren’t fun good times and people can get bad hurt, and part of that is: yes, if someone identifies the incident and has to do something about it, here i am.
so if anyone knows of a guy who got his skull cracked in a parking lot brawl in minneapolis in 1991, for god’s sake speak up.
