    He should be ashamed. The only reason he stepped up is because he couldn’t keep his lies straight. Idiot.

    Lochte is a descrase to our country, he should be des missed from the team.

    I think Lochte’s apology was too weak. He did not seem intoxicated when he told the original lie. He ran out on the others as soon as he could. I am sure under other circumstances he would have stayed for the festivities.

    Considering, I have had many boyfriends and a couple of husbands in my life, I must not be that horrible. I’ve kept them very happy. It hurts coming from a chicken shit like yourself. I’m so offended. OMG! What will I do? I have been insulted by the creature from the black lagoon! Oh My Word! I am just crushed!

    Rick, I am a highly educated accomplished woman in my own right. There is nothing naïve or dumb about me. WATCH THE VIDEO DUMBASS!!!

  12. Rick

    Glad your happy Laura, however, some what naive!!!

    There are some dumb people on this forum, If you really think that the Brazilian police are not corrupt thieves. They will ask you flat out for a dollar amount. If you refuse, They say they will take you to the police station. So call it what you want. It’ is still Robbery! It is apparent that the people that believe the Brazilian Police have one not been to Brazil, or two have not been Robbed by them!!

    There is no trash talk. A video is worth a 1,000 words. I am perfectly content with my life. I have raised three wonderful children. Two are in college with above a 3.8 and 4.0 GPA. I have an older daughter who works 70 hours as the head of a bakery for a famous theme park. I have a grandson who is in a gifted program. I, myself, have worked at a wonderful job in the medical field for over 10 years. This swimmer, based on the facts, is not a role model for my children. Atleast, when Michael Phelps was arrested for DUI, he apologized and admitted his error and has not reverted back to the same behavior. He is a true role model. I am, in other words, very happy with my life.

  15. Rick

    So many people talk trash about these swimmers without knowing the facts!!! Which leads me to believe they are just jealous nobody’s and are not happy with there own lives!!!

    Brazilian police are most likely like the Mexican police. They Rob you, like they did me and friends. If you resist they tell you, they will have to take you in unless you pay them cash money , American dollars!!!

    Lochte and his buddies are an embarrassment to the USA. Like so many sport figures. Think they can Do no wrong.

    Lochte and his buddies are a disgrace to the USA. THINK THEY ARE ABOVE THE LAW

    Oh, and C. Shelton, I cannot believe the way people put athletes who behave in such a despicable way on a pedestal. I respect the dedication that it took for Mr. Lochte to get to the Olympics, but he was representing the USA. He tried to make Rio look horrible. Rio already had enough bad publicity without his lie adding to it. He behaved like a 3-year old child throwing a tantrum ripping a sign off the wall. This is not a role model for children. The truth and the fact of the matter are that he ruined his reputation. I am sorry if you don’t want to hear the facts.

    C. Shelton,
    You must be blind because that is the only explanation for your moronic post below. That is not what the video showed. I don’t make any presumptions unless I can see something for myself. You know which candidate I am talking about. The proven liar and corruption queen of Wall Street. He was not robbed and he is another American liar. I’m pretty sure you should maybe watch the ACTUAL VIDEO before you make a donkey’s behind of yourself.

  22. C. Shelton

    Oh, and Laura, in our country we are presumed innocent until PROVEN guilty. I’d be unsure of this protection in a foreign country and want to get home too. And to your acidic political question… Which political candidate do you believe isn’t willing to do and say anything to gain power and money?

    Am I the only one wondering about the stealth SUV, with black matte paint job and blackout windows, that is just outside the gas station bathroom?
    Anyway, the recording shows somebody pointing a gun into the taxi window. If anybody does that to me (especially if I’m sleep deprived and drunk) flashing any kind of badge and demands money, in a language I don’t speak no less, I’m pretty sure I’m gonna believe I’ve just been robbed.

    Why does it seem to me that lying is becoming a way of life among American citizens? It is against GOD’s commandments. Why is it necessary? He should have just told the truth from the beginning. Everything has been captured on video, so he cannot distort the facts. He was trying to avoid having his reputation tarnished and by lying and covering up the truth, he has destroyed his credibility. He also received a ton of press coverage and made Rio look worse than it already has been. He needs to apologize to Rio and tell the truth. Does this remind anyone of a certain presidential candidate who will do or say anything to gain power and money? Why is this becoming a way of life? I think since GOD was removed from the public domain, morals and values have deteriorated at an alarming rate in this country.

    Lochte was/is right in leaving Brazil when he did! Had he stayed, he would/could have been embroiled in a foreign court system. Any evidence will have been scrubbed/edited in favor of the Brazilian government—Lochte would be locked up. Now the Brits are the same kind of trouble; how will that pan out?
