If it was my 19 year old getting a ticket for driving that speed, their a** would not see the inside of a car for two years.
And sorry, but God doesn't run the traffic court. If He did, you'd be in trouble.
The God reference is not in regards to the ticket. It was in reference to the unfair judgments made by many of the posters on this board.

I am a 46 yr old female and I admit that I have a lead foot and have had a couple of tickets in my lifetime for excessive speeding (90-105 mph).
There are just as many 19 yr old white kids that have gotten a speeding ticket and they are not categorized as thugs and gangbangers.
Derrick came from humble beginnings and has made something of himself. Im proud of him and would be for any child that has had such achievements at such a young age. The Bulls did extensive background and psychological tests. He came back squeaky clean. He made a mistake. He admitted he did something dumb. How many of us have not done something dumb as a teenager and as an adult. Its amazing that there is so much blatant racism about a young BLACK male who overcame the odds. Youre ready to imprison him for a speeding ticket. I just think you would be singing a different tune, if it was your 19 yr old son who got a speeding ticket. Some of you act like you are perfect. Only GOD is his judge.
Your so stupid! It's not about him being black.. its about him being a high profile athlete (well actually not yet since he has not stepped onto a professional court) and he is already in trouble with the police! No one cares what color he is! They care for the safety of others.
Yes, it is about him being black. Black males are oftentimes stereotyped as thugs, gangbangers, etc. I beg to differ, people care what color he is or stereotyopical comments would not have been implied in this post.

The only one making it about race is YOU! Typical... It is well known that the most racist people are blacks. And dont jump all over me.. I have plenty of black friends they just are not racist like you.

Won't jump all over you; will ask for evidence of that--beyond the tired Jesse-Sharpton refrain we see all to much here.

Will also ask how that reconciles with:

And no need to deny the thinly veiled bigotry in some of these comments here, by people who act as if this kid's speeding ticket confirms their unfounded suspicions of him due to his background.

Ghetto IS as ghetto does.....THIS BUFFOON is going to BURY the Bulls with his ghetto mentality and IGNORANT, IRRESPONSIBLE AND IMMATURE attitude.

For "his" sake, I HOPE that they give him the MAXIMUM penality and he learns to GROW up and live life like a "professional"....

Too bad Michael Jordan isn't able to TEACH this buffoon how to act and live like a mature professional MAN.

Are you serious! You are a JEALOUS RACIST!!!Please! Please! Please! show me a 19 year old YOUNG man (black or white)that is not IRRESPONSIBLE and IMMATURE. HE is far from being a buffoon. Michael Jordan has his own sons to raise. Why does everyone in the world think that Michael Jordan is "Captain Save an Athlete". I am pretty sure that Derrick's parents raised him to be a proper gentleman. It was just a speeding ticket DAMN!!!!! HATERRRRRR

wow after reading everyones comments, i would have to say that most is under the impression that anyone comming from a bad background is going to be a criminal. There were so many ignorant comments on here it disgusts me. Wonder why other countries hate america because we think our own crap dont stink. If anyone ever hear his interviews you can tell this kid is no where close to a thug or a criminal. He may not be a great speaker but he shows that he has been raised to be humble and respectful. so many people are haters that they cant face the fact that another human being is doing well. Cant hate on a brother when he came from nothing. He was probably thinking he was invincible but at least now he knows. Also it would have been different if he was drunk but he wasnt. But wait after the Bulls start to turn heads, then youll see all this bigots hopping the bandwagon. Geez

A 19 year old getting a speeding ticket? Wow, never heard that one before. Pretty much everyone I know has gotten a ticket before. Your government officials get tickets. Your priest gets tickets. Big deal. He'll figure out what not to do like everyone else does. This is news worthy how exactly? Oh yeah, the Trib and the rest of Chicago like to think they have thugs on their NBA team that need to be put in their place. Makes me think you all haven't seen a real thug before. Rose isn't trouble no more than you were when you got a ticket at age 19. Get over it.

Bet he had his thuggish buddies were in the back seat. Go Jason, Go Jason, now we will have a car crash instead of a motorcycle crash.
He's not from Memphis. He is from the Chicago area idiot.
