Video shows Stow in argument at Dodger Stadium

TMZ.com has posted video of Giants fan Bryan Stow getting into an argument with a Dodgers fan before his attack at Dodger Stadium, later identified as Juan Banda.

The video shows a Dodgers fan pointing his finger into Stow's face, and Stow throws up his arms as if he doesn't want any more of the argument when the Dodger fan walks away.

When the video made the rounds, Banda's co-workers at his job told him to call the police. There is no word on if Banda is being considered a suspect, but the LAPD still has Giovanni Ramirez as the primary suspect. The police can afford to take their time building a case against Ramirez, as he was sentenced to jail for violating his parole by being in possession of a gun when police took him into custody for the Stow beating.

Stow, 42, is still unconscious at San Francisco General Hospital, where his condition has been upgraded from critical to serious.

Wasn't much of an argument.  Stow was seated and appeared calm.  The guy in the jersey seated rows away apparently felt the need to come over to Stow and say something.  Why is this a story?  Even if Stow was arguing with Dodgers fans he certainly didn't deserve to be attacked.  TMZ is a joke anyhow.  Following the Stow video stay tuned and see who Kim Kardashian is sleeping with this week.  Geez.

I wish we had an edit function...

I meant to say, "anybody who uses the argument that Stow 'deserved what he got,' etc..."   Oh, well.

I live in the Tampa Bay area.  If we put every loud fan of an opposing team in the hospital with a coma, they would literally have to build a minimum of 25,000 new ICU's in the area.  Nobody deserves to be put in the hospital for cheering for his own team.  Anyone trying to build a case that Stow "deserved" is using the same "bleep deserved it" defense that chronic domestic abusers have used for years.  Sorry, but "that bleep don't fly."

I said this since day one.  I DO NOT condone him getting beat-up for being a Giant's fan at a Dodger game, BUT.

According to people interviewed from this video apparently Stow was very vocal at the game.  I said since the first day that there was no way these two thugs just walked up and jumped him.  Guarantee that they said something to Stow, most likely the Giants suck (with a few explatives), and he stupidly talked crap back to them, and things escalated from there.

Once again, not saying that is acceptable at all.  But you are there with your kids, you obviously know that these fans are friggin' intense and most come from the hood, and you even text your friend/family that you feel things are rough at the game, and you continue to TALK.  Learn your place.  If I am driving in the wrong part of town, and some thug yells something at me from the corner, I don't yell back at him.  I roll up the window and drive away as fast as possible.  This guy didn't just get jumped walking down the street wearing his Giants shirt.  He was talking crap the entire game, and most likely after the game as well, and it cost him dearly.

Of course we can't decipher the audio from that clip, so nobody knows who was really the "aggressor" in that short confrontation. Either way, it was senseless to allow that situation to escalate the way that it ultimately did.
