The details are sickening to say the least.

I realize professional sports coddles and forgives criminals and miscreants accused of domestic violence, but even this must surely be too much for any organization to condone?

He deserves 20 years in prison at the very least.

According to reports, Bird’s girlfriend says he detained her for four hours on Friday afternoon in their Brighton apartment. He allegedly repeatedly kicked her and strangled her roughly a dozen times, including once until she lost consciousness. She reportedly tried hiding under a bed and in a locked bathroom, and when she tried to escape the apartment, he allegedly dragged her back by the ankles.

Bird’s girlfriend escaped when he eventually suffered “seizure-like symptoms” and passed out, according to the police report. She reportedly moved him to a bed and fled in a friend’s car. When Bird came to, he allegedly texted her and threatened to kill himself if she did not return to the apartment.

Not sure what you mean by that. Which NBA organization has coddled a known domestic abuser?

He just suddenly had a seizure???? Huh? Unless he tests positive for drugs etc. that's a pretty weird thing to just happen.

I'll wait for the whole investigation to conclude rather than accept one side of the story....and I'm not a fan of him or the Celts.

You might want to Google NBA domestic violence before you call it into question. It's not like plenty of teams haven't looked past DV for talent before.
