Drug abuse has been a pervasive problem in professional sports for many years. The public learned of the latest arrests of Jaguar team members: Brian Williams (pled No Contest to drunken driving), Bobby McCray (arrested for possession of a controlled painkiller), Khalif Barnes (arrested in November for DUI), Charles Sharon (UP IN SMOKE marijuana coming from his SUV and a stolen ABT handgun under his seat) and now DUI arrest of Khalif Barnes.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states there are about 17,000 alcohol-related traffic fatalities each YEAR, that 57% were killed in crashes where the driver's blood-alcohol concentration was .08-or-higher, that 21% of children aged 14-and-younger were killed in alcohol-related crashes and that there is 1 alcohol-related fatality every 31 minutes.

So, I have to say,(a) thank you to law enforcement for protecting our families from people like Khalif Barnes,(b) Barnes should realize that substance abusers' tactics of denial, guilt, shame and blaming everyone for his drug use is nothing new - GET HELP,(c) the Jaguars' owners have more problems than a losing team and (d) when will the Al Sharpton/ NAACP protest to raise awareness about racial slurs by Barnes begin in Jacksonville???
