Many times small incidents are escalated into something much more because of the inability of parties invloved to maintain a sense of discipline. Words and mannerisms' often change what a normal outcome would be.

Take the case of Henry Louis Gates for example: Asking the Police, do you know who I am? Well, in reality the Police do not give a .... who you are if they think you're in the process of committing a crime. A situation that could so easily be rectified winds up spiraling out of control all because of attitude.

I think they should be profiled. The crime and complete disregard for living a proper life is ridiculous. Its getting out of hand. And 99% of it is because of this bullshit "Thug Rapper" Mentality, yo. Fucking Dirtbags. I am getting tired of players and ex players in the headlines committing crimes on a DAILY basis. Our kids are being taught, conciously and subconciously, that these sort of actions are to be expected and are run of the mill if you are an athlete, and that is a sad sad situation.

I hope Goodell can start cracking some fucking heads.......

Re: do cops chase criminals?

Let's chill with the F word.

The NFL is just a cross section of society in general. For every bum that makes the headlines for driving drunk, assault, etc., there are many, many more GOOD stories out there that we don't hear about. For every bum there are probably 10 really good guys in the league. Guys that are strong family guys, strong community leaders, etc. Don't let a few bad apples spoil the bunch.

Well said.

And as I've said before when there is a good story, no one cares.

Case in point, look how few responses these stories got:

http://www.thewarpath.net/redskins-l...os-on-one.html (Chad Ochocinco gets kudos on this one.)

Re: do cops chase criminals?

Do cops chase criminals? Hmm, it depends on the county and possibly the state. Like DC supposedly has a no chase policy. Fairfax and Prince William have a no chase policy. Stafford will chase you to Cuba if they have to. These are just examples.

Now is the more appropriate question... do cops do their jobs they get paid to do? Lets look at it this way.... was the Bengal player breaking the law and did he get caught? if so then the cops are doing their jobs.

Let me ask you this, if I told you that every time you go to a specific fast food restaurant you will have spit in your drink, would you check your drink every time after you ordered from them? yes you would. The same can be said about people. If a cop stops you and finds drugs or after he stops you and runs your info and learns that you have had previous drug arrests what would be the chance you might have drugs on you at that very moment? greater then the average citizen. So logically when a cop stops someone and the info comes back that they have had a previous drug arrest the cops are gunna want to search you and your car. It's not their fault if your stupid butt gets caught with drugs again. Get caught once and your red flagged basically. Either don't get caught or don't break the law it's your choice.

I thought there was a statistic somewhere that said more white people get stopped and charged for offenses, but more black people go to jail for their offenses? This is not the cops fault for this statistic its the courts.

Re: do cops chase criminals?

Are the Bengals innocent of the crimes they're accused of committing? This guy makes it sound like the only people populating Cincinnati jails are Bengal players.

I like to think it's more about character. Clearly the Bengals have character issues.

Do cops chase criminals? Only if you run from them.

You can check your drink all you want I'm not even going to go to that place if I know that happens. LOL

Who cares as long as you have taught them the difference between right and wrong what these guys get in trouble for should not have any influence over your child. If it does then you have other issues going on. Maybe you should only let them watch golf or bowling. Also when I say "who cares" I'm don't mean I don't want to see sports cleaned up I mean it does not affect my family.
