Re: Cody Latimer arrested for assault and firearms charges - WHOOPS

We should be living in a civilized society. The appropriate response to a crime (real or perceived), whether that be someone running from an empty house under construction or the alleged abuse of a child, is not to get your guns and confront someone. The appropriate response is to call the police and let them deal with it. Vigilante justice has no place in Our society, especially when the behavior could harm innocent people nearby.

From the teams perspective, Latimores not a good football player. His role here was as a 5thWR/veteran leader. We have a lot of young players on this team and latimore has proven heís not role model material. As a human being, i can relate to a degree and and I hope the criminal justice system allows him some leniency if warranted, but I donít want guys like this on my team.

Good post

I was thinking this same thought this morning after reading the Codyís case update. But still, Iím willing to give Cody more of a break than the clown show in Georgia. Also, I probably would have applied a more physical approach if I was Cody...than a gun. He probably would have enjoyed it more as well and probably wouldnít have been charged. Iím hoping Latimore gets the charges dropped.
