    Which of those kicking and punching the guy on the ground was Blompig? Lowbrow lowlife thug, from what he looked like in the courtroom. The others are still being charged; hopefully, they will be at least convicted of practicing massage without a license.

    & he still has go through the civil trial. Now that his criminal trial is over, he can't take the 5th in a civil trial (unless the feds step in & prosecute, in which case they probably would delay the civil trial).
