No one get me wrong, it is highly possible that Taylor was being a bonehead.
However, I'd hate to blame him for something that he had no significant involvement with.

I can't blame people for wanting to be around the people they grew up with. The very cautious (and some would say intelligent) players (i.e. Arrington) stop going to clubs and hanging out in their old neighborhoods with their old friends once they become famous football players.

Antonio Pierce is from SC LA and he goes back there all the time. I'm sure he's not constantly surrounded by the most upstanding citizens 24-7. Moreover, I'm not sure that I would stop hanging out with old friends in old dive bars etc. if I became a famous football player. If I came from a rough neighborhood or had good (but dumb) friends, I don't think I would simply turn my back on them once I "made it."

I don't know where exactly Taylor is from - perhaps he's from a very upscale, low-crime neighborhood. But, I can't say he exercised poor judgment. I don't know where he's from, who (if anyone) he was with, his relationship to the shooter, under what circumstances the shots were fired, or anything really.

All we know is the police want to question him about a shooting. It sounds bad and it could be very bad, but right now, we just don't know squat.
I'm pretty sure the "bad peeps" aren't allowed in the Redskins weight room, which is where he should have been... not in Miami with his friends from The U. If he's in DC working out with his teammates, he's likely not putting himself in the position where he's a person of interest.

...unless, of course, one of his teammates is having a birthday party.
