[quote user="titwio"]Not condoning Dez's behavior at all but according to reports his mother is far from a saint. In-fact she has quite a rap sheet involving selling and abusing crack cocaine.

I've seen some messed up stuff in my life and pretty much all of us here have no idea what really happened... I'm just saying maybe we shouldn't judge the guy without knowing exactly what happened or the way he may have grown up in those circumstances. There's history there we know nothing about.[/quote]

It doesn't matter how messed up his mother is/was Dez should never rough up a women let alone his mother. I think his mothers past is irrelevant at this point and while she may have provoked him, he could easily have walked away. Also listening to the 911 tape it sounds like this isn't the first time he roughed her up. Sucks he's in a dysfunctional household but he should know right from wrong by now.
