He was about to be a hero anyway and why would he have hired four thugs AND the bar security guard to come, just in time, to save him?

All four of these excuses are just plain silly; the many attempts to blame the victim are likely the work of the UC cleanup crew.

How about Tommy Hook? Now he's a hero for conspiracy theorists everywhere.

I can think of 4 possible series of events that led to Tommy Hook being beat up in the parking lot of a topless bar:

(1) This is a conspiracy by the University of California to silence Tommy Hooks. Of course, he's already scheduled to testify before Congress, and he's been complaining since 1997, but for whatever reason they decided now was the time to strike.

(2) Tommy went out for a drink at the topless bar, some Los Alamos people recognized him, and they beat the crap out of him.

(3) Tommy went out for a drink at the topless bar, touched some boobies, and the bouncers beat the crap out of him.

(4) Tommy set the atack up himself to make the UC system look bad, make himself look like a hero, and possibly win a pile of money in a lawsuit.

Discuss.
