Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

The Cops Just Had to Mess with Rampage Jackson

In this video interview with CBS, Rampage Jackson discusses some of the wacky goings-on in his mind around the time of his arrest, and does his best to explain it. You see, he didn’t think he was God. He thought he was a God. That is, until the police took the opportunity to be total jerks to him, thus reminding him that he was indeed mortal. Because a God wouldn’t have taken no lip off no cops.

It’s somewhat reassuring to see that there was a type of logical process at work in Rampage’s mind — God is his father, he is God’s son, so he must also, through hereditary processes, be a God himself. That actually makes some degree of sense in a Grecian myth kind of way. Think Zeus and Hercules and all that. And if Hercules were alive today, wouldn’t he be an MMA fighter? I’d like to think so.

The fact that it took the cops being assholes to him for Rampage to realize how crazy this all was is probably the strangest aspect of the story. He seems to have been genuinely affected by that. It’s got to be the first time in history that the cops did something good by mocking people in a vulnerable state who were in their custody. Also probably the last time.

Here’s the rambling, bizarre CBS interview, where Rampage details more potential mistreatment at the hands of the police and talks about what led to his eventual breakdown. He claims the police were calling their friends on their cell phones to brag that they had him in the car, while also “chastising” him for trying to preach to them. He also admits that he doesn’t completely remember what he was saying, and sounds at times like he might not be all the way back from his bout with delirium.

@ Allufuckingidiotstalkingshitaboutrampage

He was simply telling the story. In no way did he still think that he was a god. My family has many police officers in it and I still think that the majority are douchebags. The power gets to their head and I definitely get an odoriforous emanation of pork when any are around. My recent experience in the military showed me how easy it is to allow power to go to your head. Cops are always full of it and I certainly hope the negativity returns to them 100 fold. I hope Rampage gets no time and comes back to prove that Forrest has the power of my 4 year old daughter. It's just too bad that Forrest will not hold the belt long enough for it to be another title match.

toolverine: the word on all that is juanito was embezzling money from him.

Sounds like he might be bipolar...
toolverine- September 1, 2008 at 1:37 am
WTF. Who was he betrayed by?
shutupandfight- August 31, 2008 at 11:51 pm
yeah what the hell...maybe he'll turn out to be the first black pope...who knows?
come on guys- August 31, 2008 at 9:43 pm
he doesnt have a "victim mindset," he admitted he was both wrong, delusional, and acting crazy. what do you want? he was betrayed, he starts reading the bible to find some solice, but coupled with the lack of food, sleep, energy drinks, he takes everything out of context and does a bunch of crazy stuff. yea its not good, but shoot he admitted everything he did was wrong. give the guy a break!! he'll come around alright.

thing that gets me, if he wasnt a christian, half of these people on here wouldnt be so mean about it. hes no mother theresa, but at least hes trying.
Shane- August 31, 2008 at 9:36 pm
OK its offical Rampage is offically NUTZ !!! Another angry black man mad at the cops. Give me A F'N break...And i used to like and respect Rampage....Not anymore....
belie7er- August 31, 2008 at 8:37 pm
Nice victim mindset. He probably blames the man or whitey or whoever for his pattern of poor choices.and of course when you kill somebody, the arresting officers supposedly acted unprofessional. Yeah, you're the victim right?
Craig- August 31, 2008 at 6:17 pm
who even knows if all that took place... the guy was thinking he was a god... you think there might have been some voices in his head? And even if the cops did all that, so what? not like he wasn't going to on national news that night.
shutupandfight- August 31, 2008 at 5:49 pm
while i wouldn't neccessarily agree with the cops calling their friends to tell them they have Jackson in custody...if you're going to ride around in a humongus truck (by street standards) with YOU painted all over the exterior...them ya might expect some mockery.
CJ- August 31, 2008 at 5:01 pm
Get well, Rampage!

We love you.
Earl- August 31, 2008 at 4:40 pm
It's seeming more and more possible, to me, that he may not make it back from this "break". Shame really, I didn't much care for him before TUF. Really grew to like him after that. Then all this happens. Stop talking to the media. Go away, get right. Come back strong. Who can tell?
give it a break- August 31, 2008 at 3:57 pm
Rampage needs to stop with all this retarded Holy babblin, just own up to what you did ( which is fuck up ) and get on with your life, man Forrest musta really scrambled his brain. I love watchin Rampage fight,but listening to him speal this shit is annoying.
BOJO Jenkins.- August 31, 2008 at 3:50 pm
I agree with him... I think he is 'innocent' because he truly didn't know what was going on. He should make restitution though to those he hurt
poor baby- August 31, 2008 at 3:35 pm
of course the police mocked him. dude's preaching about a bronze-age mythological character and driving a monster truck with his portrait on the side!!!! gee, nothing to mock there... i wonder if he was wearing his chain... effing tard

rampage should be institutionalized.

I was at a club in irvine last night and I saw rampage there. I think going to England will be the best thing for him. he looked like he didn't want to be there but he stayed there while his entourage partied all night.
