Ingrate – LaVar Ball Dismisses U.S. President’s Effort To Release Son From Chinese Jail…

UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were arrested in China for shoplifting while attending basketball tournament. UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said the players stole from three stores in China including sunglasses stolen by LiAngelo Ball from a Louis Vitton store.

During a state visit to China President Donald Trump requested leniency and consideration from President Xi Jinping. The players were released as President Trump returned from Asia.

Now, the ungrateful father of LiAngelo Ball, LeVar Ball, dismisses the efforts of President Trump:

“Who?” LaVar Ball told ESPN on Friday, when asked about Trump’s involvement in the matter. “What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”

“As long as my boy’s back here, I’m fine,” LaVar Ball told ESPN. “I’m happy with how things were handled. A lot of people like to say a lot of things that they thought happened over there. Like I told him, ‘They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes.’ I’m from L.A. I’ve seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses. (link)

    This is the reality of being a foreigner in a communist country. Mr Ball is a disgrace.
    Due process does not exist in most countries, especially communist ones.

    This happened on Obama’s watch, just like Tamareesi in Mexico and Otto Warmbier in NK.

      Perfect adjective to describe father LaVar: INGRATE
      As to the stupid son LiAngelo: you can take the thug out of the ‘hood, but you can’t take the ‘hood out of the thug.
      Raised to disrespect authority, and to only serve self, LiAngelo Ball and his two thieving teammates are just three examples of what results.

    There weren’t any white Americans to free- just the black ones. My President Trump represents all Americans and serves all Americans. His commitment to the people of this great country is on display for the entire world to see. We have a leader who is on America’s side. Dindus or not.

    It’s really a crying shame that these 3 guys
    decided to,for kicks, shop lift in 3 different stores.
    In the USA we have billions stolen every year from retailers with our permissive society and lenient
    respect for our laws.
    I really feel so badly for these guys and their choices. It’s not a joke. I hope they want to improve their behavior and never do this again.
    They can turn this around and help thousands of their siblings by admitting they were wrong and being good examples for the younger guys who want to be them.

        As for me, unless LaVar Ball is the father of all three, he only spoke for his son. Time will tell and I understand why the President said what he did but it is not a surprise to see a black person in denial. He has to live with his own ignorance.

    You would think this father would love his son more than playing politics. He should, of course, be grateful for the safe return of his son. Maybe this young man is acting this way from a poor upbringing in values. I only hope his son will sincerely learn from his huge mistake in communist China. He could have been returned like a vegetable or suffered in prison. Stupid choices make for lifetime consequences.

    They should send Ball back and let him face charges. See how he likes Chinese prison. This was a big deal, because it happened in the middle of a State Visit by Trump. The dumbass kid embarrassed the entire country as well as our beloved President Trump.

      Whatever that specific circumstance, this man apparently doesn’t value his own son. Having his son returned to him should have been viewed as the greatest gift anyone could have given him.

      This isn’t just ingratitude. From where I sit, there are no words to describe this level of ingratitude.

      This guy might have even been correct in that what president Trump did was probably quite easy and trivial for him to pull off. He probably just asked him to let the boys go. He fails to appreciate what is required for him to make that feat look easy. Would Xi have released his son if the father asked? I highly doubt it.

      President Trump didn’t do anything difficult for him to do. But to achieve that level of power and influence is monumental. And to use that power and influence on something as trivial as this ungrateful father was certainly beneath the president. But you know what? He did it anyway knowing that people would do precisely what they are doing now.

    If the young man whose “father” said this had any sense he would “divorce” himself of this man before he ruins his life any further. We know now where he learned his bad behavior, and we’ve seen this train wreck too many times already.

    He has been giving a golden opportunity to stand against his father and say to the world and to all the kids listening to him out there, “YOU ARE WRONG! It was very bad thing I did and I am lucky that i am not spending the next 10 years of my life in prison. It is thanks only to President TRUMP and his administration that my life and my freedom was spared, and so quickly. When you go into a prison, especially in a foreign land, there is no guarantee you are coming out, regardless of your sentence. I was stupid, it was wrong and I WILL NEVER DO IT AGAIN, here or anywhere else, so help me God!”

    There are parents out there who teach their children it is NO BIG DEAL to steal from others. I mean, some people have white privilege and all, and they need to be brought to heel, right. They don’t deserve to have all the good things, ya’ know. The family is a criminal enterprise. That’s why so many baby daddies are in jail.

    This should be a teaching moment for President TRUMP to the nation. He should address this without addressing the father, only what the little cockroach said. And don’t take it out on the kids who already apologized and perhaps have learned from this lesson, especially, not to listen to a cold-hearted parent who sat comfortably at home and “hoped” something would “change” while his delinquent son was under arrest in another country. Someone should send him a bible and mark the Ten Commandments for him.

    He should thank the kids ponce again and accept their apology, and speak to the issue of the winding road between theft and prison vs hard work and a good honest living. Between drugs and drinking vs sober life. Between knowing when to say no to your peers when they want you to do something you know you shouldn’t do or going along with the crowd.

    Our President’s kids are a testament to an example of what happens when you have a parent teaching their kids the right way.

    By my count they broke at least two of the Ten Commandments. So these are not just crimes against the stores, China and their team, they are crimes against God.

    This fool is always saying ridiculous things in order to bring attention to himself. All he cares about is attention. It doesn’t matter to him what people say about him so long as people are saying something about him. His thirst for fame is comparable to that “family” that’s always doing what ever it takes to make the “news” day in and day out. The son that plays for the Lakers sucks. The UCLA thief son is garbage and
    will never go pro and the youngest Balltrashian is a clueless pawn and doesn’t even know it. President Trump should have waited a year or so to intervene. The whole stealing incident was an embarrassment to say the least while our President was over seas in Asia at the time. Than this dotard has the nerve to question who our President is (as if he doesn’t know) and than declare that stealing is no big deal. Last time I checked it’s the eighth commandment and morally wrong. Why dear Lord are people like him so well known and popular and yet Sundance isn’t a household name?

    That Mediaite article didn’t give the whole quote of what LaVar Ball said.
    Here is the rest of it:

    “…worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses. My son has built up enough character that one bad decision doesn’t define him. Now if you can go back and say when he was 12 years old he was shoplifting and stealing cars and going wild, then that’s a different thing.”

    “Everybody gets stuck on the negativity of some things and they get stuck on them too long. That’s not me. I handle what’s going on and then we go from there.”

    —-

    That sentence about how his son has “built up enough character” that he can get away with doing something wrong…is what stands out to me.

    This attitude is right out of the Elitist liberal playbook.

    It is this attitude that ‘excused’ Bill Clinton for his crimes…
    ‘He does so much good, that he is entitled to get away with breaking the law.’

    It is the basis of the elitist, entitled class’s attitude that they are ‘Above the Law’.

    The Second Thing that stands out to me about this…is that the MSM is to blame here too.
    They barely covered the importance and magnitude of Pres Trump’s State Visit to China.
    Because of this, daddy LaVar is dismissive of the magnitude of what Pres Trump did for his son…and he gets away with it!

    The MSM can’t correct LaVar and say…’No. It was a very Big Deal.’
    Because they would then have to admit that they didn’t cover it as a Big Deal.

    I am so glad that Pres Trump fired back with that lethal tweet.
    It would serve the slimy weasels in the media right, if he remarked on their intentional failure to give a monumental Official State Visit the coverage that was warranted.
    But…he probably won’t.

    When I saw the three players read, and I mean READ (verbatim) I was not impressed. The players read their statements because they were forced to by the school I would imagine. Their words rang extremely hollow to me. Not one of them looked into the camera/crowd and offered apologies to the Chinese hosts, America, their school or their parents for such disrespectful behavior.

    Mr. Ball is an ingrate and should shut his bloody mouth and let this die down. Not once did he say he was disappointed with his son’s actions and he thought he raised him better than that. Instead, he tries to blow it off as something inconsequential. Does he realize that his son’s act did not occur in “L.A.” but in communist China where their legal system operates quite differently than ours?

    As a UCLA alumnus, the actions of those three “student-athletes” read privileged thugs, are reprehensible. They are an embarrassment to the United States and UCLA. LaVar Ball has turned out to be a bigger ungrateful idiot than his son. Neither of them nor the other two thug thief knuckleheads has any idea what a big bullet they dodged thanks to President Trump. They all make me sick. Clearly, these Rhodes Scholars did not embrace the wisdom and philosophy of John Wooden. I have done business in the PRC for more than 25 years and I have lived in the Mainland. During that time, I have had personal knowledge or heard about the horrible conditions that foreigners face in Chinese local jails and prisons. In fact, a colleague of mine spent a night in a rural Chinese police station jail just for inspecting some equipment that was on public land that our client owned. We paid the police a $100 bribe and he was released. There was no paperwork, he was not deported and nothing was stamped in his passport that precluded him from returning to the worker’s paradise. His cell did not have a bench or a bed. Just a bucket. There are foreigners that are jailed in China for a lot less serious offences such not being able to present identity documents or working on the wrong visa. Granted, many foreigners bring this on themselves, however, there are documented cases of foreigners in China who are wrongly imprisoned (the three basketball amigos are not in this category). Conditions for jailed foreigners are extremely harsh as you can see in the attached story. It is very hard to find the exact figure of how many Americans or other foreigners are incarcerated in the PRC. However, I did find a website that listed the total number of people behind bars in China at about 1.6 million with approximately 8,000 foreign inmates. There was another site which broke down the nationalities of foreign prisoners in Beijing. Out of a population of 300, approximately 30 were from Europe and North America. The rest were mostly from Southeast Asia and Africa. Out of that group, there were only four Americans locked up in Beijing. Looking at other stories about individual Americans jailed in China, I would estimate that there are probably 20 or so Americans in Chinese jails. My point in presenting this information is that the Chinese Government does not bow to pressure from other countries to release their citizens. In fact, they could care less. The average person does not understand what an incredibly amazing feat it was for President Trump to convince Xi Jinping to release those felons. If it was not for President Trump, I do not believe they would have been released. The Chinese do not like to lose face and in most cases Xi Jinping, would rather let them rot in jail then release them. He does not care about world opinion or kowtow to outside pressure. If President Trump’s predecessor had been in office, there is no way the Chicoms would have released them. However, I am sure that if he had triplets, he would have made the point that those boys would all look like him. Remember when that U.S. Navy P-3 made an emergency landing on Hainan Island in the South China Sea? The Chinese milked the incident for all it was worth and humiliated Bush 43. In fact, the Chinese took their time going over the plane. Then, they dismantled it and sent it back to the U.S. three months later in pieces. If the Chinese will do that with an American military aircraft, they have no compunction about punishing the three shoplifters. Someone posted earlier as to whether they were charged. Like my colleague, no action was probably taken and the expulsion was probably not recorded in their passports. So, they were probably were not charged with shoplifting and unfortunately, because of that technicality, the three criminals will not be expelled from my beloved university nor will they be summarily kicked off the basketball team. They will probably receive some kind of SJW diversity award and an apology from Jerry Brown.

    LaVar is an ungrateful POS. I bet the parents of the young man who died when he finally came home from NoKo after Trump secured his release would have loved for the BHO to have secured the release, thus their son would be alive. LaVar needs to be grateful. In my opinion, the young man is a product of this father. You do NOT steal! Shoplifting is stealing!! I bet the players have done other things that the athletic dept has covered up….it is well know that ADs will cover all manner of abuse on campuses. Just think about the trickle up to fame we find now…..example NFL…Shut up, LaVar. Teach your son how to be a man, and respect other peoples property. Idiot!
