I'm with you, she is a hot little number. I'd give her a thunderous 32 seconds of pure pleasure.

IPS isn't a high school fella! Maybe you should consider attending your urban employer for the next 15 years!??? If Jack hadn't got his gun to do WHATEVER, maybe...just maybe that guy wouldn't have run over a jerk firing a gun that he was in conflict with...not to mention possibly trying to save the life of the handicapper from being stomped to death by Jack's party! Obviously you just don't get it.

Oh, you're a teacher. Now we understand. No bigger racist apologists than teachers. I was one once. They're pathetic, condescending, clueless and ALWAYS see things in terms of race.

They also call others racists and bigots when they have no argument. Professors are the worst. A danger to society's progress.

I'm currently reading a book "Out of Bounds" by Jeff Benedict. It documents what a cesspool of thugs that are in the NBA. Over 40% of the players (this was in 2004) had some sort of battery, assault, domestic violence, or sexual misconduct charge filed against them at one point or another in their career. Guys like Jackson just add to the laundry list.

OK, I am originally from the inner city of Indy and still talk to people there regularly. I can tell you that Stephen jackson has lost any ghetto card he ever had which wasn't much because he is an arrogant a-hole. It is common knowledge that Stephen jackson was traded partly for his own protection. He and his Pacer friends believe they are above the law, able to pull out guns and point and shoot them at people during disagreements. He admits he had out the gun. He admits he fired shots. A guy is in a vehicle trying to get away with an armed angry gunman (that would be stephen) close enough to the car to be brushed back as the car sped away. This guy goes to prison for 2 years and jackson gets off free! No justice in that!

Now before all of you-cant-do-no wrong-people begin to slam judgment on Stephen Jackson---he was just doing what most any person in that precarious situation would do!---defend humself against a bunch of thugs and gangsters.--Any comment to the opposite of my always astute ones are from-racists,bigots,and profilers!---so here is a valid piece of advice for you JACKSON haters-Quit meddling! and find something else to do!
get a life and knock the chip off your shoulder. I guess its a free pass if your black. If the man gets in trouble stop playing the race card to get him off. Hope you all cheered like the day OJ got off

<quoted text>mr astute could quite possibly be a Greenfield High student who failed to graduate! By supporting the moronic activity of a 'ROLE Model' and millionaire that has put the reputation of his employer in question as to it's moral fortitude of keeping and tolerating 'thuggery' and put the lives of himself and others in jeopardy at a place you would not take your family(shouldn't go there ever in the position Jack and his colleagues are in, in the publics eye) shows the siccessful implementation of our schools to "DUMB-DOWN" the average Joe in America to this level of thinking! I agree this guy can bite me also!!!!!!
I will tell you now that asstute did not go to school in Greenfield , he moved here like a lot of other idiots!

This is a tough situation and it goes beyond what Jackson did. We are now finding out that justice has at least some sense of being able to be paid for less than what a crime owes.

This is not Jackson specific - just look at the fall out over the LA City Prosecutor! If I were an attorney, it would seem to be somewhat negative to suggest that the more a person can pay determines that they can get a "better" attorney. I was not aware that pay determined the ability of an attorney. Secondly, it is amazing how people with money get less or reduced penalties and time, while many people who have nothing get the book, kitchen sink and the bed thrown at them.

Do the crime - do the time. At a minimum, the legal system is now getting a brighter light in the wake of Hilton, Nifong, Jackson and many others!

There is some validity to your statements; however, the manner in which you present them indicates that you need to deal with the fact that the original comments caused you, too, to play the race card. No sense in two justice systems. No sense in acting like there are serious inequities in the system!

Sounds like you should run for Chief of Police!

No apology necessary Jumping Johnny. I knew you'd see it my way. Obviously Mr. Astute is the moron. He probably doesn't even think Gene Rodriguez is hot!:)
