NBA punishment sets dangerous precedent

Until a few days ago, I'd never heard of Donald Sterling. Not too surprising since I don't follow basketball. I actually needed to google "Clippers" to find that the team is from Los Angeles.

Recent media coverage has disclosed he said some pretty nasty things about black people to his girlfriend, who chose to share that conversation with the world. Apparently, based on that private conversation, this Sterling guy is now banned from the NBA for life including ownership of his team.

So my question is, when did committing jerkacide become the trigger for the thought police to dole out punishment and take your property? I find that to be a very scary thing.
