Raul defends the Palmetto punch

Raul Martinez participates in a wide-ranging interview on SportsTalk 790 AM's The Ticket that opens with whether he's ever seen a chicken sacrificed.

Asked about the 1999 incident in which he was videotaped roughing up a protestor, he says he was defending the cops: "When you're a hands-on individual, you got to use your hands," Martinez says, noting the guy he clocked had a criminal record and was "not a spring chicken, nice guy.

"I was not the bad guy, the bad guy was the guys who were taking over the Palmetto," he said.

"Am I colorful? Absolutely," he tells host Dan LeBatard. "But you're going to expect me in Congress to fight for you. Not with my hands..."

I can’t believe American citizens will not use their heads to put two and two together. Where is Barrack Obama getting all of this money for advertisements. Don’t be afraid people, the wall street melt down is a magic trick to put us in fear to vote for Barrack Obama. Wall Street is greasing Bill Clinton’s palm also for his money shot Endorsement of B.O.. The wall street meltdown happened in a timely manner before the election. Wall Street has robbed American citizens purposely to sway an election. B.O. is a gentle lamb in wolves clothing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That 5 million dollars for Barrack Obama’s 30 minute commercial is corrupt money from companies on wall street that have purposely ruined American citizens lives by creating financial turmoil. This is all by design to sway votes toward Obama. Wake up people, the wall street meltdown just so happened right before this election? Regardless our votes don’t count. The U.S. election is as corrupt as many third world countries.

Hey Herald, you left out the most important remarks from your article. Way to keep your reporting skewed for your guy. Your paper gets worse by the day.

When asked about his first conviction he said in this interview Martinez says" I was caught" and clearly was told by Le Bartard that he would vote for Diaz-Balart. But the Herald won't tell you this either.

Listen to the interview the Herald is censoring this article because 790 thrashed their boy.
