Giants fan beaten into a coma had it coming for wearing a jersey, says John Steigerwald

A few rhetorical questions come to mind: 1. What the hell would possess somebody to write something so heartless as this? 2. How does this guy have a job? 3. How did his editor take one glance at this piece and not kill it? 4. Seriously, what causes somebody to write a story as vile as "the innocent man who got beaten within an inch of his life deserved it for wearing a jersey"? Apparently Steigerwald is a former Pittsburgh TV anchor and current writer at the Observer Reporter, so some of you may be familiar with him (I am not). EDIT: Here's a link to the original piece, if you want to read it. I encourage you to not click the link and avoid giving him page views, but if you want to see the whole article it's even worse than this description.
