When you think of SEC football what do you think of? The answer mostly depends where you live. South of the Mason Dixon you will be mostly get the answer of excellence, the best of the best, greatest show on turf. Here in BIG10 country the answer tends to be the following. Thug ass cheaters.
With that I give you this story.
Alabama left tackle Cam Robinson and safety Laurence “Hootie” Jones will not be prosecuted , according to a filing from the Ouachita Parish (Louisiana) district attorney’s office.
The filing cites insufficient evidence, for Robinson, on charges of possession of a controlled dangerous substance and illegal possession of a stolen firearm and, for Jones, possession of a controlled dangerous substance. Both were arrested in their hometown of Monroe, Louisiana.
I guess being caught sitting in a car smoking marijuana with a bag of more weed and a gun in plain sight along with a stolen handgun under the passenger seat is not sufficient evidence anymore? All happening according to the police report.
So why were these Bama players given a pass? Because the DA of Ouachita Parish (Louisiana) is obviously a football fan. Here is what he had to say about the case.
“I want to emphasize once again that the main reason I’m doing this is that I refuse to ruin the lives of two young men who have spent their adolescence and teenage years, working and sweating, while we were all in the air conditioning,”
Hey asshat, just do your job. It is not you that will be ruining the lives of two young men it was they who chose to make those bad decisions leading to their arrest. Did you ever think that maybe letting these guys off will lead to more crime? Violent crime?
Once again, the SEC wants to know why they have an integrity problem.
