Latest on Taylor

From the WPost:

Quote:
Yesterday, the Miami-Dade state attorney's office held a pre-filing conference to begin determining whether to prosecute safety Sean Taylor for two felony counts of aggravated assault with a firearm and one misdemeanor charge of battery. The procedure was closed to the public and Taylor's defense lawyer. The process is expected to last a few days. If the police's evidence is judged insufficient, the charges will be dropped. A decision isn't expected to be revealed until Taylor's arraignment June 24.

Re: Latest on Taylor

Love to see the charges dropped but at the same time this kid needs to be taught a lesson. It may be the best thing for him and our team. Thoughts?

Mike Doss was suspended two games for firing a gun into the air. FIRING A GUN.

Firing a gun into the air would represent recklessness and general public disturbance, and perhaps inciting panic. Since he didn't fire it at anybody, it's not a felony.

What Taylor did was way worse. He allegedly pointed a gun at somebody, as if to threaten them. That's felony assault. If Taylor is convicted of a felony the NFL will hit him with a 4 game suspension, per the NFLs criminal conduct policy.

Hopefully the facts surrounding the situation are unclear enough for him to have the charges dropped. I'm just guessing here, but maybe if the other guys actually shot at Taylor later in the night, the police might be lacking in concrete eyewitness accounts of what happened. It's possible that the guys who fired at Taylor were the only ones who really saw what happened, and maybe they don't want to talk so much because they stole his ATVs. I dunno, I'm no lawyer, so I don't know the chances of the charges being dropped. But hopefully the facts are too fuzzy to charge him with anything.

Re: Latest on Taylor

To bad it happened in Florida and not California. You can molest and kill people in California and not get jail. But in all seriousness, I don't think he'll do any time at all. But I agree he needs his head straightened out.

Re: Latest on Taylor

Taylor sounds like a thug, an extremely talented thug, but a thug nonetheless. If I'm in Taylor's position and my pops is the Chief of Police, then the last thing I do when my ATV's are stolen is run up on the guys with a gun and threaten them. Maybe Taylor does need to be charged and tried, perhaps the threat of prison time will slap some sense into him. But the only thing that is clear is that Mr. Taylor just doesn't get it.

Re: Latest on Taylor

If the charges are dropped I don't see how we could punish him. Doesn't the league only allow you to punish a player who's actually been charged with a crime?

Re: Latest on Taylor

Matty is correct, no charges=no punishment

I think it requires conviction, not just being charged.

I wasn't sure which it was, bottom line is once the charges are dropped the team can't punish him. If he misses some mandatory practices that's another story.

Re: Latest on Taylor

Again, I think it's the people he hangs out with in Florida. I trust Marcus Washington's judgement that Taylor is a good kid when he is with the team. I can see Taylor hanging around a bunch of thugs that didn't make it as pro football players and just hang out in the streets and cause trouble.

Re: Latest on Taylor

The fact still remains that he pulled a gun on someone...
