I hope AP doesn't get the hammer, and really that he takes a minor plea and lets PB deal with his own stupidity. But we will see.
Right. I mean if thats the case and they want to persue that against AP, than go ahead... but to try to charge him for picking up the gun with the same crime as Burress I think is just assnine.

2) not his gun.........and the person who did own it was right there how is AP to know if it is or isn't?

I think your painting the best possible picture. I know that when it happened, the media I saw sure made AP sound like he had tried to hide the weapon, and took a while to be "forthcoming". I was, at the time, surprised charges had not been filed.

As to it not being his gun, if I hand you a gun - after having it go off in a crowded bar, and you don't give it to the cops immediately, I am pretty sure you are going to be looked at as an accessory after the fact, regardless of if it's registered or not. It's not quite the same thing as two guys at a hunting club saying, hey Joe can you take my rifle back to the club for for me.

Thank you. This is a hand gun, not a spit ball shooter.
An ambulance and the police should have been called immediately. Since when does a gun going off in a club and someone getting wounded not warrant a criminal investigation? Regardless if the gun was registered or not and the circumstances of this 'accidental shooting', the police should have been notified. The truth is the players were trying to cover it up to avoid trouble.

To Antonio Pierce: Keeping idiots nearby as friends will allow idiotic circumstances to follow you, even if you didn't do anything idiotic yourself.

1) We all know what should have been done but the fact we are dealing with ...it wasn't.
2) #1 ...and most important the welfare of Burress,that was what AP was thinking
3)You don't know what the tuth is...the jury will decide it,and on a side note...those two were so well known they couldn't have coverd it up.

Hiding what you know is probably an illegal weapon would be considered idiotic for most of us, but your point is well made nevertheless. The problem of course is this: when there are no repercussions for keeping idiots nearby, why wouldn't you continue to do so?

Very stupid what AP allegedly did...just as stupid as what Burress did. Well hopefully things work out for them.

Going after Pierce was just a way of getting Burress,who will "never" play in the NFL again.At 31 and most likely to get 2 years and then suspended by the NFL,nope.

I just heard the official news...Pierce will not be indicted for anything. If anything, he was just being a loyal friend.

He may never play again and will not be the same Plax if he does play. Bye bye Plax.

What a shame, he could have been a great one. Now he will just be one of those guys who was just pretty good.
