‘F*cking disgrace’: Jury helps jagoff Jesse Ventura stick it to Chris Kyle’s widow

Appalling.

Via ABC News:

A jury awarded former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura $1.8 million on Tuesday in his lawsuit against the estate of “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle.

On the sixth day of deliberations, the federal jury decided that the 2012 best-selling book defamed Ventura in its description of a bar fight in California in 2006. Kyle wrote that he decked a man whom he later identified as Ventura after the man allegedly said the Navy SEALs “deserve to lose a few.”

After finding in favor of Ventura, the jury was also tasked with awarding damages for any harm to his reputation, humiliation and embarrassment. Jurors had to find that Ventura suffered an economic loss as a direct result of Kyle’s statements, or that Kyle used Ventura to profit unjustly.

“Any harm to his reputation, humiliation and embarrassment” were entirely self-inflicted.

It certainly wasn’t a conscience. Clearly he never had one.

Let’s hope not.
