Witness backs Leonard's story


Recommended Posts

A witness, yea, they're hard to come by. I refuse to believe that a guy like DL would allow himself and family to be mistreated like that and just walk away. This just smells like another "me too" story. BTW, Bubba is still going on with his "story", it's tough to jump down from your victim perch.

For the record, witnesses always comes out of the woodwork after these high profile race baiting cases. Look at Michael Brown in Ferguson. Witnesses said they SAW him with his hands up and his back facing the cop. Turns out they weren't even in that area, but the media just bought it..

I don't believe a lot of what the media posts/says but Darius Leonard isn't Michael Brown, he is a millionaire and I do believe his story. He has 0 reason to lie.

My point is, even though I really like DL as a Colt, his story just doesn't make sense in many ways. Maybe I'm being skeptical because of the MANY "me too" fraud cases, from the lady who spray painted swastika's on her door then claimed white men did it, or the Jesse Smotett scam to the Bubba Watson noose....plus 100's more!!

There’s always going to be people like that. Just makes it ten times worse for those who are affected. 
 

I agree with 2006, there’s really no reason for him to lie about this.

I'm giving DL the benefit of the doubt, but TMZ, and an anonymous witness does little to move the needle lol. Like I said, we'll likely get either some video surveillance later backing the manager, or an apology from Chipotle and the firing of the manager.

Yeah it will get locked. Might as well get my thoughts in.

 

I like his factual statement about what happened.. I didn’t like his opinionated statement about “knowing what would happen” if the police showed up.

 

The ESPN headline stated “Darius Leonard feared police involvement”... that’s it. That what the headline. literally making it sound this situation actually had something to do with police brutality instead of just racial profiling or a general misunderstanding..

 

As a police officer myself, stuff sucks to see sometimes. People dont like us because of some bad apples and  Media will do anything they can to make a mockery of us.

 

Besides that though Darius Leonard seems like a good person, i don’t know if he would make something up for attention.

I didn't like his statement about police either. Painting with a broad brush doesn't help.

Not sure if I smell salmon or talapia.

I can't blame him for making the statement about the police.  Especially in the current environment.  He's a black man in South Carolina who was racially profiled and tossed from a restaurant after having conversations about BLM.  Certainly not all police are the same but if I were him I would be more than nervous about seeing police cars pulling up.  He is just echoing the feelings of many black men now.  White men would not feel nervous but black men are fearful.  For obvious reasons.

TMZ actually does decent reporting and has broken some big stories.  Not sure on the resistance in believing this.  He’s a millionaire.  He has zero to gain in concocting a made up story about an experience at Chipotle.

 

The people dogging bubba Wallace, what does this look like to you?

sure looks like a noose so can easily see why any reasonable person would see a problem with this.

Looks like a noose to me. I think that liar Jussie Smollett put doubts in peoples minds to what is real and who is telling the truth regarding black people. The lie he told was outrageous.

Are you suggesting Florence, SC, or the South is just a bunch of rednecks. Again, broad brush. Leonard grew up there. Demographics are about equally split, as is the city council there. I'd guess that the PD is pretty close to 50/50 too.

 

We absolutely need reforms and change. What we don't need is assumptions and emotional instead of factual conversation. We need a willingness to have uncomfortable conversations. If you watch MSM and listen to some folks these days, you'd think 99% of LEOs and PDs are horrible evil people. And the facts just don't bear that out. They actually paint a very different picture. Less emotion and extremes please.

    • A bit of a reach you're making here.  There's no evidence that stat has anything to do with opponents fearing Rivers' ability to throw downfield.  You come off as an irrational Rivers hater to be honest.   As others have pointed out, Rivers has been pretty deadly when going deep compared to the rest of the league. You also ignore the fact that this stat is for actual JT running plays - not all plays - as well as the fact that the stat is likely skewed by the fact that in half of our games we ran clock for the majority of the second half.  Of course the D is gonna stack the box in those situations.   Do you happen to know which 4 RBs have faced a higher percentage of stacked boxes on their runs?  And if so, do you also claim it's because those QBs are not "feared"?
    • My Dad died In 2008. I made the trip back then to the Baltimore Area and saw my old room. Mackey's poster was the only poster I'd ever had. Still was hanging, more than 40 years after buying it.  Great Man!  Most kids today never heard of him. Made the absolute weirdest 75 yard TD in SB V.....   In those days an offensive player couldn't catch it after another offensive player had touched it, unless the defense touched it in between.  The game was held up forever as the refs tried to see if a Cowboy's fingernail grazed the ball...
    • Does Brady have enough footballs to keep AB and everyone else happy? If I had to guess... no but we will see.....
    • Keep in mind the Bucs are in win-now mode. They know once Brady is done, they are effectively done. Taking a chance on Brown makes sense, because Brown makes them better now. The Colts don't need to win now because we have a young nucleus of guys and a promising (imo) young QB in Eason. I know that sucks to hear, but Brown isn't worth compromising our locker-room over.
