Jackson acted like a thug and should be fired. Our children are suppose to look up to and pick hero's from our sports figures. And what happened to the pot charge. Had it been anyone I know, the police would have thrown the book at him. Is his money gonna buy him out of this too?

This thing has been blown way out of control and sounds a little racist to me. Like Bob said yesterday in the paper, if it was two white players they would be victims, not thugs. Basketball players should not be role models, parents should be role models. If you dont like how a player acts off the court then explain that to your childeren. Stephen Jackson should be kept on the squad, they gave Ron Artest many many secound chances and HE NEVER APOLIGIZED. You know the funny thing is that if he comes back and drops 20, 5, and 5 a game like he's capable of and probably will come close to doing so....all this crap will be swept under the rug as an incident of bad judgement. I mean he fired his gun in the air because he was hit by a car....its not like he STARTED a massive brawl at a sporting event after he threw a television camera after being ejected from games for throwing elbows, yelling at Pat Riley, taking time off to pursue a music career....then saying he's not responsible for any of it and he's not sorry....then we take the jackass back after everyone outside of Indiana says trade him....then what does Ronnie do??? He says he wants a fresh start.
On a new team.
Jack is not so bad, forgive and let go.

I don't know who Bob is, that said in the paper yesterday, if it was two white players they would be victims, not thugs. I do not agree. Two white players in the same sitution would be thugs also. Seems the only people that yell racist are the black.
