Pacman: Did He Actually Make Threat?

New Development on the Pacman front:

"A Minxx topless cabaret bouncer (Henry Jenkins) places Adam "Pacman" Jones in the middle of the violent melee Feb. 19 that resulted in the shooting of a club security guard, but fails to say the troubled NFL player made a death threat, according to his statement to police.

This is a different account than what was provided by another bouncer at the bar early on in the investigation.

But Jenkins' memory was different. Although he made it clear he felt threatened by Jones, and at one point incorrectly believed the football player was hiding a weapon behind his back, he noted that his co-worker Aaron Cudworth wielded a baton-like weapon in an effort to break up the fight."And then Cudworth's like, 'Don't even,' you know, 'Don't even try to bring that out,'" Jenkins recalled. "'Cause, 'cause see Aaron was pretty close. He goes 'I'll whack you in the knee.'" Although the bouncers implored Jones and his friends to "relax," they failed to quickly break up a series of hair-pulling skirmishes between Minxx dancers and women who had accompanied Jones.

Clearly, while Jones' may have been wrong for being involved in the melee, this paints a different picture. Threatening to beat the knees of a pro football player with a weapon? That certainly doesn't sound like a threat that will calm the situation, does it?

"We've never once said he wasn't in the middle of the melee," Langford (Jones' attorney) said. "I'm not saying he's pure as the driven snow in all this. But Jenkins heard him say, 'Stop disrespecting my women.' That's not a death threat. He heard it all. This is their employee's statement to the police the morning after the incident."

So, essentially, we are getting two different accounts from bouncers involved on what happened that night.

The real question: Why is this just coming out NOW?

wait a second...

do you mean to tell me that we maybe shouldn't believe everything you hear from VEGAS STRIP CLUB EMPLOYEES!?!?

I thought people like that told the truth all the time?

Guess that whole "due process" idea isn't so crazy, after all?

It's just a shame that this cheap publicity stunt by some seedy night lounge is predicated on the destruction of a young man's career--nay, life.

The "Minxx" owes young Jones an immediate and heartfelt apology. That is the first and most important step to reconciling this mess.

Why? dont you know it takes time for Pacmans people to get in contact with this guy with an acceptable dollar amount for him to say what they want him to say?

Sir, again, you can't read.

Did you see the part that this came from the police report filed the morning of the incident?

Well done.

You keep your streak of insufficient reading comprehension in tact.

Sirs, this is off-topic but I need your advice.

The Harlem Book Fair is this weekend. Is this the sort of event I should attend in celebration of the literary and cultural accomplishments of negros in America? Or should I stay the hell away as the powers-that-be might decide this would be the perfect time to engage in a little genocide?
