Nothing good happens after midnight, especially among people you don't know(the sk_anks) or have issues with. Could have been a setup, but who knows.

Why do we act suprised when an industry that actively recruits criminals is riddled with criminal activity?

More good news for the NRA. The more people get shot by guns, the more people will live in fear and buy guns.

"The entire Jaguars family is praying for Richard and his family at this time." What a great way of saying "they're not doing anything."

yeah like that guy who turned down his NFL contract so he could serve in Iraq and ended up getting killed by friendly fire.

You're a fu˘king idiot. Why do you people avoid the glaringly obvious and instead blame an entire corporation who had absolutely nothing to do with the event? I bet you blame drugs too, instead of the poor choices of people who are on them.(Let's not even get into illegal drugs, there are 25,000 vehicular manslaughters EVERY YEAR because of DUIs. All illegal drugs combined kill less than 20k.)

I was thinking either Reid and the Eagles are really desperate to win a Superbowl this year, or the Bengals will recruit him after he recovers.

Most of the people on the streets who have guns are cowards, that's why they buy guns, so they can steal, and kill if need be. Which is why I can't wait til I can afford a gun so I can defend myself.

No look of surprise on my face. Only a chuckle and a comment, gee, imagine that.

the exceptions prove the rules. And I have argued repeatedly on these forums for legalization.

Probably had nothing to do with beiing NFL players. Probably because the two sk_anks were probably trolling for robbery victims for their b/fs, and saw these two flashing wads of money & showing off. THAT will get you killed.

Wow, that response is spot-on, you're probably right. the shooting probably had nothing to do with their celebrity status but to be duped into a robbery while lookin' for some secks.

Doubts, i'm not sure what you mean when you say 'pro sports do more damage than drugs and alcohol combined,' firstly, alcohol IS a drug, so instead of saying 'drugs AND alcohol' just say 'drugs and more drugs.' Sounds stupid, doesn't it?

Personally, I was fuming by the end of the night last night watching the 'skins and the bears, every other commercial was for bud lime. Alcohol kills countless thousands of people every year, it makes people aggressive and argumentative and combative and you can overdose on alcohol (remember the Rowan student who overdosed on alcohol a few years ago and caused an investigation into fraternity hazing?) but you can't overdose on pot.

Absolutely not, where do you get this flawed information? Cannabis is much safer than alcohol, and cannabis even causes your brain to make MORE brain cells:

it also cures at least 3 different kinds of cancer:

it also doesn't make you a drunken belligerent idiot like alcohol, and it has the opposite effect as alcohol on driving; people (and i'm not endorsing it, i'm just saying) people who drive tend to be aware of their intoxication, and attempt to take corrective measures. They drive slower. Everyone who drives drunk absolutely thinks they're ok to drive. That's what I thought when i wrecked myself and my brand new motorcycle back in 2001, causing 2 broken ribs (which punctured a lung), broken collar bone, broken shoulderblade, and 5 skull fractures. Alcohol is the most dangerous drug i know. coke and shrooms and pot are childs play compared to the danger alcohol imposes, none of them make you a clumsy, belligerent fool.

That's not the original picture they had with the story, though. Here's the one they had with the original story:

Oh yeah, i momentarily forgot that the federal government purposely lies about illegal drugs on tv all the time, they constantly spread lies about it to brainwash the ignorant public into supporting their unconstitutional war on drugs. Being arrested simply for carrying a certain substance?

You used to be able to pay your taxes with hemp. Try that today.
