The Pacman Charade

Well, we all knew it would eventually happen.

Several months AFTER the incident. After the DA refusing to levy charges, the powers that be have finally fabricated a case they deem worthy of pursuing.

It's interesting that in March, the DA wouldn't file the charges, the main sticking point being an unidentified shooter.

That shooter remains unidentified, but now the charges language has been changed in an effort (or more probably, a blind hope) that they will stick.

The charges now levied against Mr. Jones are two counts of felony coercion stemming from allegations he threatened to kill club employees and bit a bar bouncer on the ankle.

Coercion is the act of threatening or physically interfering with a person trying to do something that he or she has a right and responsibility to do.

The claim is also being made that "new" evidence is what has led the DA to file these charges, after previously declining to do so. However, the only new information being reported in the case is that Pacman's DNA does not match the DNA taken from the bite wound.

How this information convinced the DA to file the charges remains to be seen.

Sit back, folks. We are about to be taken on jurisprudence whirlwind tour chock full of half truths, innuendo, suppositions and certainly a touch of racial stereotyping and behavioral attribution thrown in for good measure.

We pray that Mr. Jones' lawyers receive some advice from the beyond. From Johnny Cochran.

"how long before he is turned into someones Miss Pac Man when he gets locked up."

Wow, sir, racist and homophobic. The limitations of your mind never cease to amaze.

Martin said...

"I can rhyme, too."

Yes, you can sir. If only you could reason, though.

Martin said...

"his menace who took the privelege of playing in the NFL for granted will now never play again"

Sir, I apologize, did I miss the trial already? I thought, sir, that we were all innocent until proven guilty. However, in the eyes of the NFL and YOU, those of us without the correct skin color, are guilty no matter what? How ever open minded of you sir.

Sir, we told you once.

You can post as "censored".

That is all.

How will Pacman afford his legal bills while suspended?

Denying a young Negro athlete the ability to pay for his legal counsel smacks of Jim Crow.

awww...i missed the deleted goodness

"awww...i missed the deleted goodness "


Sir, not really.

Martin's comments had quotes from the deleted posts.

The deleted commenter is free to post and will not but deleted.

But he must post under the agreed upon name, "censored".

He was the one that came up with the name. We just want him to stick to it.

Simple.

This just in....Adam Jones has changed his nickname to Miss Pac Man in anticipation of becoming bitch to an inmate named Bubba. He will keep his football skills sharp by practicing playing with another set of balls while locked up. In the end this is just payback for killer OJ being set free.

Get a second opinion next time you post trying to be funny.

I dont think it is funny...it is sad...what is funny is how you all are backing this menace. The NFL must begin protecting the image that low lifes like adam jones have been trying so hard to tarnish. Good bye Pac man...at least now we will know where this moron is...locked up.

Malcom Hex said...

"what is funny is how you all are backing this menace"

when he is convicted, then we can talk.

til then, give him the courtesy you give all the white boys that go trial. innocent til PROVEN (not accused of being) guilty.

man, you wanna spout off all this shit. say everyone should be personally accountable. talk about blacks need to take responsibility.

but YOU won't even let the damned justice system run its course. you condemn on accusation.

and you wonder why black folks get defensive? why we read the white media and find it offensive that it reports things a specific way?

man, when you scream at us and our community to be responsible. to follow the rules. to live according to the laws...and then in the next breath you don't even ALLOW the process of law enforcement, justice and the legal system to run it's course before you start applauding a man being locked up...can ya see why maybe black folk feel the way they do?

you about as racist as they come.

HAHA.

The rules don't APPLY to us. Or, i should say, the RULES apply. But the rights that go along with them don't.

Right, censored?

HA, I love that NOIS flipped the script. It's the personifaction of what we r talking about. LOL

Johnny Cockring said...

Sir, word.

And they will hate on NOISb for sayin' it. Because they hate to see how the world has changed since their carefree times.

Sir, they need to get used to it.

The demographics...they is a changin'...

It's possible that these charges have as much to do with Pacman starting a melee as the do the actual crimes.

The charges that he now faces are ones that have factual evidence and eyewitness accounts. Not only that, but its clear the prosecution can point to a pattern of this type of behavior over the course of the last two years.

Johnny Cockring said...

"its clear the prosecution can point to a pattern of this type of behavior over the course of the last two years."

Sir, Rules of Evidence state that the prosecution cannot.

That is, (if Nevada's Rules of Evidence conform to the Federal Rules, which they most likely do) the prosecution cannot point to a pattern of previous behavior to prove Mr. Jones' actions on that night.

Thusly the criminal justice system accounts for prejudice. Weakly.

oh swell, scoop jackson's alter ego is now a civil rights attorney. zipity doo dah!

Johnny Cockring said...

"oh swell, scoop jackson's alter ego is now a civil rights attorney. zipity doo dah!"

Sir, since your idea of justice seems to involve a rope and a tree, I'd be offended if your compliments were genuine.

Dave the Wave said...

"I'd be offended if your compliments were genuine"

most people would be offended by the part where i called them scoop jackson...

Johnny Cockring said...

"most people would be offended by the part where i called them scoop jackson"

Sir, true. Most people are not named Scoop Jackson, prefer to be called their own names, and would be offended to be misidentified.

I thought you were the same person as 'censored'. I wonder which of you two is more offended by that?

Dave the Wave said...

yea, while the name scoop is offense...one would think being compared too him would be even more upsetting.

Johnny Cockring said...

Sir, before taking offense, I consider the source

an insult from you is a compliment to me.

Thank you

I agree that Mr. Jones is being made an example due to his high profile, but in sympathizing with him we overlook the facts of this crime. People were injured and someone is paralyzed for life, where is the punishment for the shooter? And although far from being worthy of felony charges, Jones must take some responsibility for throwing upwards of 80,000 in cash on the floor. I can't think of one situation where this would not lead to a riot of some sort.
