Portland Pimp Blames Nike for 100-Year Prison Sentence

Sirgiorgio Clardy — a Portland pimp who was found guilty of robbery and assault — is suing Nike for $100 million dollars for failing to label their Air Jordans as a "dangerous weapon."

Clardy was wearing his Jordans in 2012 when he brutally stomped the face of a john who was attempting to leave without paying one of Clardy's prostitutes. He's arguing that he would have never used his shoes to beat the man if he knew they were classified as a "dangerous weapon," saying that Nike "failed to warn of risk or to provide an adequate warning or instruction [therefore] it has caused personal injury in the likes of mental suffering."

Something tells me that Clardy, who has also been convicted of robbery and beating a woman he forced into prostitution so badly she "bled from her ears," will not be receiving a response from Nike. It probably doesn't help that he has been described as "an anti-social psychopath who was 100 percent likely to commit violent crimes again." What an all-around lovely human being.
