Temple Of The Dokic
Posted by Brodie under: Uncategorized
Just when you thought JD’s dad couldn’t get any more nuts (I honestly was just thinking that the other day) he does this`:
Tennis player Jelena Dokic’s jailed father launched a hunger strike to protest the 15-month prison sentence he received for threatening the Australian ambassador.
Damir Dokic’s lawyer, Bosiljka Djukic, told The Associated Press on Thursday that she had been informed by Dokic’s wife that he was no longer taking any food, water or medicines in prison. He is serving his sentence in the northern town of Sremska Mitrovica.
The 50-year-old Dokic was arrested in May after reportedly saying he would blow up Australian ambassador Claire Birgin’s car over the negative articles in the Australian press in which Jelena Dokic accused him of beating her.
Dokic had threatened to fire a rocket launcher at Birgin’s car, but later said the statements were made in anger. He also has admitted having beaten his daughter.
Hmm, yeah. I just don’t see why he belongs in prison. The dude definitely has a lawful case to protest *eyeroll*.
The sort of hilarious thing about this is that FDers Courtney and Kristin were tweeting about how Temple Of The Dog (a one off album with members of Pearl Jam and Chris Cornell) were getting together to play a few shows in the LA area. Figures, their biggest song is “Hunger Strike”, which features good ole Eddie Vedder on vocals as well. I guess because I’m a music nerd as well, the coincidence of it all is epic hilarity. “I’m goin’ hungraaaaaaay”
