Knicks center Enes Kanter spent most of his life in Turkey, which does not celebrate Halloween, at least in the traditional sense. The 25-year-old has never experienced the excitement and anticipation of rushing home from school to transform into Freddy Krueger or Batman in a quest to get as much junk food as one can fit in a pillow case. He’s never returned home to watch R-rated scary movies because his parents are too drunk to care, all while bargaining with his siblings over candy trades. He’s probably never egged or toilet papered a house or dumped an entire ‘Take One’ bowl into his pillow case or took a dump in a paper bag and set it on fire on Mr. Dixon’s lawn. Oh, you neither? Never mind.
So when you don’t fully understand how integral Halloween is to a kid, you end up doing something like this.
There is technically no law against doing this, but I’m voting for the candidate who puts criminals like this behind bars.
