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.

Totally agree both from a legal and "what the team should do" standpoint.

From a moral standpoint though... I ain't judging. I have no kid but if somebody was to do something like that to my wife, and I get an opportunity to find the man, he's not taking a bullet in the head, he's spending a month in my basement getting tortured Liam Neeson style. Not saying it's right, not saying it wouldn't deserve a severe judicial punishment, but my guts tell me that's what I'd want to do.
