That was my first thought too. You can take the Hurricane from the Orange Bowl, but you can never take the criminal out of the Hurricane. Or something like that. Playing college ball in the sunshine state makes you a harder criminal than 4 years in Rikers. I hope I'm wrong...I hope that he wasn't putting his life and his family's lives in danger by still running his life Florida-style. But I gotta admit, given his past, that was the first thing I thought.ohiobrewtus said:I feel for his family and those around him, and especially his child.
I have a sneaking suspicion, however, that he hadn't quite turned his life around as much as the media is reporting and that this was in no way a random shooting as a result of a burglary.
Hopefully I'm wrong.
Maybe they were just looking to end his career and not kill him...Evan! said:Then again...if it really was a gang-related "hit", why'd they shoot him in the thigh? They couldn't have known they were going to hit his femoral.
Well, why'd they shoot twice and miss once, and hit him in the thigh once? I have a feeling he was coming towards them with a machete, and that was the best they could do. Again, this is just my guess. I don't know any of this for a fact at all- so I could be 100% wrong. And I wonder if they might have been aiming at the groin?Evan! said:Then again...if it really was a gang-related "hit", why'd they shoot him in the thigh?
