Photo emerges of C.J. Leslie lifting up wheelchair court stormer


Apparently a guy in a wheelchair was knocked onto the floor when the students rushed the floor after NC State's win over Duke. NC State player CJ Leslie picked the guy up off the floor and held him till they could get his wheelchair.

What makes me sad about this is that should be the least you could do for someone. It shouldn't even be newsworthy. These days it's remarkable that someone is willing to help.

The sad thing is that the player who should be enjoying the victory is seemingly the only one that cares. Fans are moronic for the most part.

Or that all the people who rushed the floor didn't seem to want to stop and help the guy and it took a player to go over and help the kid.

Re: The Best and Worst Of Our Future

Almost speechless after reading this:

Gang of men groomed 12 year old


Nine men groomed and horrifically abused vulnerable girls a court has heard

It has been claimed they used 'extreme physical and sexual violence', often beating and burning the girls as they raped them

It was claimed the girls were often given so many drugs that they were 'barely aware'
One victim was forced to miscarry after her attacker used an 'instrument' on her in a home abortion, the court heard

The abuse was alleged to have taken place over eight years

One alleged victim had lied to the accused so she did not have to have sex with them, but when she was found out she was driven to woods at night and threatened

She was told: 'You know what we do with pigs, slit their throats’, a jury was told


How do people treat others in such a detached, sick way? I hope the jury does right by the poor girl.

i really hope these is some form of educated/sound vigilante justice out there.

to paraphrase elvis - "you think a cop gives a **** about a pimp? listen, every pimp in the world gets shot. 2 in the back of the ****in' head. cops'd throw a party, man."

Re: The Best and Worst Of Our Future

What a REAL shame....Love Stuart Scott. My nephew is his.....white "twin". Shocking resemblance.....and mannerisms.
I wish him all the best in his fight and will have to follow him to see how it's going..
He'll get a few prayers as well.....
