They prolly do target them.

I think Benson was harassed by the police with his boating thing a while back, but Travis Henry and Odell Thurman were legit big name trouble makers (I do think Henry was on the right path before his tragic death). As much of a retard as Ocho Cinco is, you never hear about him getting in trouble with the law and I would think if cops were targeting Bangle players you would win your police office pool putting the cuffs on Ocho Cinco. But why in the world would you try target your hometown team? Its not like Cincinnati is a mixing pool like DC, I feel like if youre a cop in Cincinnati you probably grew up there. But Marvin Lewis also said cops target Bangle players and I look at him in pretty high regard. Also I generally distrust cops so I have a bias towards them.

Just call a "Beer Summit" and get to the heart of the matter. Profiling is as common in America as breakfast, it's a problem that lame efforts have been made to address for a long time.

Its the job of the police to target criminals.

Well, I don't know. And I've never been to Cincinnati (other than the airport), but I've heard too many people say that there have been tense issues with the police and athletes in Cincinnati (and African-Americans) for so many years for me not to think maybe there is something to it.

That said, Bucher does acknowledge that Benson's arrest has nothing to do with that since he wasn't arrested in Cincy.

And 'do cops chase criminals" seems to have nothing to do with what Bucher is saying, but whatever

Travis Henry? The running back in the pen with 9 kids who was caught trying to sell cocaine in some town in Minnesota (I think)?

I'm pretty sure you meant Chris Henry.

Not so much target...just keep their eye on them because of their track record.

I'm sure the Dallas Cowboys are watched too...but it's not harassment...just monitoring a group known to be criminals.

seems like he is saying the Bengals are getting treated unfairly. all im saying is that police chase criminals. do you thing Thurman, Henry, and Benson are model citizens? may Bucher should stick to talking about Lebron, and the NBA. because he is talking out of his ass here

My bad, i meant Chris not Travis. Also ole Travis is up to 11 kids, he [I]celebrated[/I] the birth of twins last year. He is now 11 for 10, which is pretty remarkable.

If you keep your nose clean...it should not matter if you are being watched or not.
These guys get paid enough money where they can afford to take a cab or hire a driver when they are going to go out and drink or do whatever. The problem is they also need baby sitters to keep them out of trouble.

I believe 100% there is truth to this story. Cinn is a very conservative city and outside of the athletes there are not very many black people there. However it's really not that hard to keep your nose clean and not get arrested.

Ok, whatever you say.

Even if they are profiling you still have to be breaking a law for them to arrest you. Now if your talking about handing out speeding tickets and stuff like that profiling is easier to do. I love the argument by someone who say's they were profiled but still had a bag of weed on them.

Ive spent some time in cincy. small small small city. I imagine an athlete driving around in an expensive shiny benz or hummer draws alot more attention in Cincy than if he was driving the same car in DC.

They had race riots about 10 or so years ago b/c the black community felt the police dept was racially motivated.
