ALL OF THE INVOLVED WERE THUGS. ANY DECENT,SELF RESPECTING,WORKING MAN WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN AT THE STRIP BAR IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.

Heard the Pacers on the radio while driving home late from work this week. As soon as it came on, I immediately switched the channel to music.
These last two seasons have made me so disgusted with this group....First Artest, then O'Neal and Jackson, now Jackson again and Tinsley? Who is hiring this filth?
They are all thugs...I don't care how good they are I just can't cheer for them anymore. Tickets? HA! I wouldn't spend a dime on those guys...not for another few seasons at best.

The Pacers should waive all of the "Rio boys" are take the salary hit. I am a huge Al Harrington fan but Uncle Reggie Miller nailed it on ESPN Radio. Your starting point guard and 2 shooting guard should be in a strip club @ 3 in the morning anyway and Reggie also stated he doesn't carry a firearm at all. I have a shovel in my truck for snow & protection. But if the Pacers want to be the Portland Trail Blazers of the Eastern Conferenc that is fine with me. I will be watching the Bulls, the Cavs, and the Heat on satelliette. Thx for your time. Joe C. of Indy

I absolutely agree with the attorney who said there are teo types of justice one for the haves and one for the have not's, seems a lot like a Bush Rally... What about Carl Brizzy and his crap, let's see justice at it's best... If it where me who discharged a weapon within city limits... let alone the fact it was done in a high traffic, public area like Lafayette Square... shame on me, my butt wouldn't be worth the pants covering it. Jackson lied up front to cover his butt and needs to face the music like any other thug on the street looking for special privilages.

Shows that there really is a "core" problem with a certain fraction of the Pacers. One of the "Goldern Rules" according to my experiences in life. "If you have a bad apple in the midst, get rid of it.....FAST!"

If Jackson was treated like any other defendant then why was the automatic seven day jailing waived.This goes to show that you can be above the law if you are somebody and have money. This sets a negative example for our young people. Way to go prosecutor.

My stepson was placed on non reporting probation a few years ago. I read in the conditions of probation that there was to be no firearms on the premises where he lived.

Shame on all of them. And shame on the Pacer staff for luring the little kids to the Conseco Fieldhouse last weekend for free give aways to make themselves look better.Pull the million dollar salaries and send them packing.They should all be banned from sports and being role models for our children. Real men don't patronize at those so called "Gentelmen Clubs". There are no Gentlemen in those places,only animals. Indiana Pacers Clean Up Your Act or go somewhere else! We don't need TRASH!

There is absolutely no excuse for the actions of the Pacers recently at Club Rio. The vast majority of NBA players are thugs and the sad part of it is, they are not the only ones to blame. They are paid ridiculous amounts of money to play a game, pampered and catered to like they are royalty and given special treatment on every occasion. This needs to stop NOW!! I am an avid sports fan and I am absolutely disgusted by the behavior demonstrated by these supposed "role models"! What a joke. I hate the fact that after years of pride I am embarrased to be represented by the Pacers. How sad the small percentage of athletes,in ANY sport, that conduct themselves professionally. This should be a way of life, not just because you are in the public eye. The fans need to start to take control of this situation. DO NOT pay to see these felons. They take their way of life for granted because we let them. Make them earn back our trust. Playing for empty arenas with no ticket sales will make a lot of people take notice very quickly!!

I don't care who he is, throw his butt in jail where he should be until he is proven innocent! He is a prior offender. Prior offenders should not be freed early!!!

Why was Deon Willford's bond set at $80,000 and Stephen Jackson's at $10,000? I don't think $8,000 would of been a problem for him to come up with either!(i just hope D.W.'s attorney does not get intimidated by Stephen Jackson's)

Why do we keep Jackson? He has been trouble ever since the Artest case. He was supposed to be in training, why did he go to a strip joint, he's a married man. He is supposed to be someone the children look up to. He is sure not a role model in any way. He is a good player unless he gets upset then he shows his butt. He cannot control his temper and that has been proven. We need role players someone we can all be proud of, not a jerk.

They are all a bunch of "thugs" - not just one group of them. Seriously, why are they out at a strip club and all carrying guns, when they are supposed to be in training camp. These are the people that our young kids are looking up to??

I'm not saying what the Pacers did was right at all. Stephen Jackson went too far. But let us remember that in the beginning Jackson was looked at as a victim. The people they were "fighing" with are convicted fellons with rap sheets as long as my arm. Who really knows what they may have done to instigate this. Let's not forget this is the day of "sue them for everything they have" and this scum may have been trying to get a payday.(It was said that the Pacers tried to leave when being harrased inside)
