New reports are saying that he was shot through the left side of his lower back and the bullet went through the abdomen. Luckily all reports say that he was OK, and has survived the attempted robbery, because he’s Big freaking Papi, and this is his f***ing island.
Remember when everyone said Donald Trump was a racist because he called some countries s***holes? This definitely proves him wrong. You know you’re in a lawless land when this is what justice looks like:
A jury of LA Gears.
The Dominican Republic is a poverty stricken nation, and David Ortiz is both a golden God and an easy target because of his well known wealth. It’s not hard to imagine someone stuck in a seemingly hopeless cycle of poverty, on an island with limited opportunity, would revert to something like this. I’m kind of surprised it doesn’t happen more often when the hundreds of MLB players return home there.
