District Judge Rebecca Thorne Tin Sentences Panthers’ Hardy to 3 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings a week! Really …

WHY? AN AA meeting is not a good place for a person with rage issues to go…period. He is a violent guy and should have spent time in jail. I hope this woman knows to stay away from him.

Panthers' Greg Hardy arrested on domestic abuse charge
Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence and communicating threats charges Tuesday. (

Bond was set at $17,000 Wednesday morning for Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy, who was also ordered by a judge to attend three Alcoholics Anonymous meetings per week following his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence and communicating threats charges Tuesday.

The warrant in the case alleges Hardy threw the 24-year-old woman to the floor and bathtub and strangled her.

Hardy was released Wednesday.

According to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg (N.C.) police, the alleged incident involving Hardy’s girlfriend occurred early Tuesday morning. Police responded to a call at 4:18 a.m. ET and the alleged victim said she was physically assaulted and threatened by Hardy.

Hardy claims he called 911 when the alleged victim would not leave. The woman identified as Nicole Holder said she had been drinking before the incident and has been in a relationship with Hardy since September 2013.

“Hardy picked me up and threw me into the tile tub area in his bathroom,” the formal complaint reads. “I have bruises from head to toe, including my head, neck, back, shoulders, arms, legs, elbow and feet. Hardy pulled me from the tub by my hair, screaming at me that he was going to kill me, break my arms and other threats that I completely believe.

“He drug me across the bathroom and out into the bedroom. Hardy choked me with both hands around my throat while I was lying on the floor. Hardy picked me up over his head and threw me onto a couch covered in assault rifles and/or shotguns. I landed on those weapons.”

Holder alleged that Hardy had 25 to 30 firearms in his apartment and that he “threatened to shoot me if I went to the media or reported his assaults to anyone.”

Hardy made no comment Wednesday, leaving the jail in a black tanktop and dark sunglasses without speaking to reporters.

“We are very disappointed to learn of the allegations involving Greg and are concerned for all parties as we continue to investigate,” the Panthers said in a statement issued Tuesday afternoon.

Hardy, selected by the Panthers in the sixth-round of the 2010 NFL Draft, signed a franchise tag tender in March that would be worth $13.1 million for the 2014 season if the team is unable to sign him to a long-term extension before July 15.

The 25-year-old Hardy played in all 16 regular-season games for the Panthers last season and finished with 59 tackles and a team-record 15 sacks. In the past two seasons, Hardy has accounted for 26 sacks.

  1. Unbelievable. Another perfect example of how the court system is using AA as a dumping ground. Why on earth would the judge send him there?


    • This is very true! It doesn’t cost the system money to send violent people to AA. And the diagnosis of alcoholism trumps anything else that might be going on with this person. This guy could be mentally ill, and what is AA going to do about that? He could also have “roid rage” from being on steroids, but AA won’t help him there either.

  2. Massive or anyone for that matter, how in the hell do these judges come up with how many meeting they are going to sentence the person to? Is there an AA conference they attended, does the top brass from AA go down to the court houses and have AA business meetings to discuss the amount of meetings each of the perps should attend.
    This is the biggest crock of shit going on within the judicial system…..naw…not the biggest. There was those two judges that were sending kids to treatment centers for money….stealing from children. This is all about money, they say education but we know that is BS. Sending perps to AA meetings cost the municipals nothing. They don’t care if AA is effective or not.

  3. Idk, but massive how could u not see AA was full of abusers?? I will never understand. But thank you for all your hard work. I hope u stick to this cause even after the documentary is out. 🙂

    Rick–I think they just heard it through the grapevine…

  4. And Monica I’m sorry if I offended u. I know it experience was different than mine. It’s just so full of them. Even the educated women are predators in my book. They tried to convince the bb was just a manual for living. Fucking patriarchal shit that it is that I saw through. I don’t think perhaps we have the same views on women and equality, maybe. Bc any woman in her right mind sees how freaking retarded, patriarchal AA is.

    • I don’t know if I would have worded it the same way, but I do agree. That’s the main reason I can’t attend meetings anymore. The BB is full of misogyny and there seems to be an acute lack of logic in those rooms.

  5. AS Jason said in his interview today…nowhere in the BB does it help you or tell you how to stop drinking, how to deal with cravings , how to moderate or reduce harm. ITS all about evangelical type religious dogma. Made up crap from 1930’s. AND our government is entrenched with it.

    • As someone who has written a lot and done training, I was always perplexed by “How it Works”. It never actually tells anyone how it works, it just spews con man, dipshit nonsense. Compare the AA “How it Works” with the scientific Sinclair Method FAQ http://sinclairmethod.wikia.com/wiki/Sinclair_Method_FAQ_for_those_using_it and the nonsense of AA becomes glaringly obvious.

      Once again, AA and the 12 Step model is not science or medicine, it is a religious conversion technique masquerading as a solution to compulsive behavior around alcohol.

      • “Once again, AA and the 12 Step model is not science or medicine, it is a religious conversion technique masquerading as a solution to compulsive behavior around alcohol.”

        Perfectly sums up AA.

  6. So, if the courts send someone to AA instead of jail, then society must assume that AA is punishment associated with rehabilitation. I mean, that is what jail is, right? So, at some level, society must associate AA with a similar degree of negativity as jail. Contrary to what many in AA have come to be brainwashed about, being in AA is not a virtue in the eyes of normies, it is negative. It is one step above incarceration and is a punishment for bad behavior. When I was in AA, that was never discussed, ever. AA is not about living happy, joyous and free, it is a life long punishment for bad behavior and those in it twist the hell out of it and try to make it something overwhelmingly positive. Oh, yeah, like they are the chosen ones and everyone should be an alcoholic to learn the valuable spiritual lessons they exclusively get to learn. Bullshit ! AA is a sentence.

    • SPJ, I wondered the same thing when I found out others besides just DWI’s were being sent to AA. Kinda like being sent to detention in school, it can never be a good thing. Makes loads of sense to send violent criminals into the same rooms with many who are in a vulnerable state and easy prey to be taken advantage of, Not!!! This is how courts are handling problems? I say we sentence all those handing down these sentences to a year of AA/NA meetings, where they can get bored out of their minds, while sitting next to a possible rapist or other violent criminal!

  7. Im back ! Amen to that spj and runtime. Im so tired 6 hours drive home but my interviews with John Hill in the Capital, and Jason, and B. the pilot Dr we e so wonderful.

    Jason and I smoked a cigar together in a BAR !! So much fun…:) Now planning the next round of final interviews. Have to go to Kentucky, Arkansas, St Louis and maybe Charlotte. Also I still need to go to bellingham, WA. One trip at a time. AA os a religious conversation institution enmeshed in the USA government. Plain and simple. The more I dig … the worse it gets.

  8. Monica, Thanks for exposing the truth. I find it mind-boggling that our courts are handing out such sentences. How does one throw the book at it’s own court system, because that’s what they deserve? They know their sending dangerous criminals into an environment where people who are often in a vulnerable state and are reaching for help are mixed. They chose this option over sending criminals to prison where they belong to save the taxpayers money, but in the end it may very well cost an unknowing victim, their life. In my opinion, they are guilty of endangering the innocent lives of those who are trying to improve themselves. They are almost as low as those they are sentencing.
