Bristol Palin's heckler regrets saying "really, really terrible things" about Bristol and Sarah Palin -- but did Bristol stoop right down to his level when she stereotyped him as a "homosexual?"

Plus, Harvey thinks last meals for death row inmates are stupid ... and you won't believe what he would do if he were in charge.

And, the reality TV producer who lured children away from a playground ... with money and candy!

An adult man bullied a young lady why is that not the horrifying part? She asked if the reason he was so hateful was because he is a homosexual, Sarah Palin opposes many gay rights. Its west Hollywood lets be honest, there is a huge gay community there. Men should never speak to women that way, if you bully someone like he did, you deserve anything that comes to you.

You cruelly lie to hurt and control people, eventually they'll become wise, and stand up to them and you, even impulsively, and some won't even believe what you say anymore, even when you want them to. Sarah, and Bristol Palin have both played nothing but absurdly stupidly reckless, and dangerously is all. They're just lucky someone like him didn't attempt hurting one of them physically. For example, hinting, and playing around with a false accusation of rape towards someone is very cruel, stupid, reckless, and dangerous. Sarah Palin is racist, too, towards black people, and homosexuals. That's not a lie, or something other people have just said to discredit her, either. Nothing, or nobody else will convince me it is, either. She's made it clear before that she wants blacks, and gays to have the short end of the stick before is all, so how can her being racist just be a mean lie about her, huh? Uh-uh. It's really not. With this guy, all it was was verbal. In my eyes, this guy did nothing wrong towards Bristol, just standing up to her and her mom is all as they HAVEN'T really wanted others to do, for a long while at all. This guy has nothing at all to be or feel ashamed of. Also, Bristol may indeed be a young adult, but she is still, indeed, an adult, old enough to face, and deal with verbal confrontations. She's no longer a minor, and once more, this guy made absolutely no attempt at all to physically confront or assault her, only confront her, and Sarah, standing up to them, and their lies verbally. Please, don't feel ashamed at all, Stephen Hanks. Believe me, when I say you're definitely not a bad or wrongminded person for doing this. There's nothing to be afraid of about these two lying, bullyish people, Bristol, and Sarah Palin, anymore, ever. Standing up to them verbally is right, not wrong.

I also strongly feel that Stephen Hanks shouldn't feel ashamed of himself for verbally confronting Bristol in the way of finally standing up to her, and Sarah because by feeling ashamed, that's the Palin "hole-in" back to their triumph over him, and many other people that they've bullied, manipulated, and lied to. Give either one of them just an inch of fear, and shame, and they'll run all over you, and others again, as if the rest of us Americans just don't exist besides them. I, for one, am very happy that I recently realized it's time to stand up to them, and their games, and will only continue to keep doing so. Thus, I truly beg you again, Stephen Hanks, please don't feel ashamed of yourself for standing up verbally to these two lying, and bullyish women, Bristol, and Sarah Palin. I'm here to firmly write to you that you're definitely not crazy, mean, wrongminded, or a bad guy at all for doing that. I mean that. Please believe me on that, too, and God bless you, Stephen Hanks.

It's also very sad, indeed, for people like Bristol, and Sarah Palin, that frequently relying, on lying, and manipulation, eventually just becomes second nature to them. Just pitiful.

Seriously?? This guy acted like an ass. It's ok to call a woman a "whore" but call a gay man "homosexual" and you've done something wrong. More Palin-derangement syndrome. Then, this guy says that Sarah Palin is dangerous??? How so? She isn't running for president, she doesn't hold political office. She is no more dangerous than this dude.

So proud of Bristol Palin! She is a badass! That guy couldn’t give one factual reason why he hated Sarah Palin. Typical liberal. All emotion, no brains. Critics of the Palin’s are calling Bristol a homophobe. Why, because she asked him if he was a homosexual? This incident took place at a bar in West Hollywood, chances are that he was. And she was correct. I’m sure Bristol has had quite a few run-ins with the gay community, considering she’s been living in L.A. these past couple of months. Many of whom that do not like Sarah Palin, because of her position on gay marriage. The same position President Obama holds, by the way. But many gay people don’t seem to have a problem with him. Very hypocritical. By the way, why is no one asking if this guy is a sexist? He called Sarah Palin a whore! I don’t hear much of an outcry over his comments. Double standard? Of course. Liberal logic always escapes me. Liberals and gays are always preaching tolerance. Meanwhile, Bristol got verbally attacked by a gay liberal, and yet, instead of denouncing this clown, they are praising him. Says more about their respective causes than it does about the Palin’s. By the way, enough with the pc nonsense. This guy looked gay to Bristol. He was. So she was right. So what? Instead of talking about the guy who attacked her, you're talking psychobabble about the Palin's. She didn't call him the "f" word. Just asked if he was a homosexual. Big whoop. Also, Bristol would've gone up to this guy, camera or not. The Palin's are extremely close. When you attack one, you attack them all. Let that be a lesson to the rest of the PDS sufferers out there.

Last meal:
The last meal is a customary part of a Condemned Prisoner's last day. The day before the appointed time of execution, the prisoner receives the meal, as well as religious rites, if they desire. As a general rule, inmates may not ask for an alcoholic drink. This is usually because prisoners allowed alcohol may become rowdy and/or loud.

In many countries the prisoner may select what the last meal will be (within reason), and the authorities do their best to satisfy the request.

History

The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci.Although the history of this tradition is difficult to trace, most modern governments that execute prisoners subscribe to it.

The ancient Greeks, Chinese, and Romans all traditionally gave the condemned man a final meal. The Aztecs fed their human sacrifices for up to a year before killing them.

In pre-modern Europe, granting the condemned a last meal has roots in superstition: a meal was a highly symbolic social act. Accepting freely offered food symbolized making peace with the host. The guest agreed tacitly to take an oath of truce and symbolically abjured all vengeance. Consequentially, in accepting the last meal the condemned was believed to forgive the executioner, the judge, and witnesses. The ritual was supposed to prevent the condemned from returning as a ghost or revenant to haunt those responsible for their killing. As a superstitious precaution, the better the food and drink, the safer the condemned's oath of truce. Last meals were often public, and all parties involved in the penal process took part.[citation needed]

There were practical side effects of a peaceful last meal as well. It was crucial for the authorities that a public execution was a successful spectacle.[citation needed] In the eyes of the contemporaries the violated law could only be restored by mirroring the crime via retaliative penalties (see lex talionis). However, if the mob believed something was wrong or the chief character of the show was reluctant to play their role, things could get out of hand and place the malefactor's guilt in doubt. Hence it was important for authorities that the condemned met their fate calmly.[citation needed] Apart from having been constantly coerced since the death sentence, the condemned's solemn last meal symbolized that they accepted the punishment.[citation needed] Additionally, prisoners were often served large quantities of alcoholic beverages to soothe them and bar them from execrating the authorities while ascending the scaffold.[citation needed] In Ancient Japan, samurai warriors would sometimes commit seppuku (Ritual suicide) for a variety of reasons. Before the suicide, the Samurai would be served their favorite foods

Get over it! As to the alleged gay bashing "$##^^ please" if I had a dime for every time I've heard one of my teen grand kids call someone a "***" I'd be able to afford the TMZ tour bus ride. Frankly I think Bristol came back with that because she was trying to keep from some good old fashioned cuss'n....my advise to her is next time let it fly toot's...as to the heckler don't di***** if you can take it when your served.

BRISTOL PALIN IS A ****. Sarah Palin is a WHORE. Those are facts. Both of them are media leeches, manipulating men, the media, and spreading lies and disinformation. THESE PEOPLE SHOULD BE PUBLICALLY SHUNNED AND HECKLED! **** these stupid *****. Why is this news? Why isn't this happening everywhere to these two *****? And now people (esp on the Left) are being Sympathetic? PLEASE! Grab your ******* balls and realize it doesn't matter what the 'RIGHT' thinks of you (they already think you're dogs, s***, and you're ALL gay, even if you're not) so why not be angry? Why not be rude? Why not stoop to their level when they let their guard down? I'd have called that bitch out because she's just as bad as her mother, promoting abstinence and getting paid hundreds of thousands of dollars when she goes around having unprotected sex and accusing her ex of rape on national TV. **** THAT **** AND HER WHORE OF A MOTHER!

I agree with him. This woman ran for president and was just a mess. She was a media whore. She was in the newspapers, on tv and was and had her own reality show which had nothing to do with the presidentsy. She took money and bought implants and her daughter followed behind her with a lot of plastic surgery also. I think she's a disgrace and so is her mom who taught her racism against gays as a defense to his behavior. "f## you..a## hole" would have been my first defense, not bringing up gays slurs.
