This probably belongs on the George Floyd thread where certain things are allowed to talk about. Having said that, I never thought Darius was lying. He has nothing to gain from lying in the position he is in.

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.

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.

    • Dude...   This was THE BEST post I have ever seen from you.  I wish there was a way to use multiple reactions, because I laughed, I cried, I liked, and I thank you for posting this.     Every single sentence was perfect.  ^This^ is the REAL @Jared Cisneros we all know and love!  
    • I don't see him coming back but then again I was sure he wouldn't retire before the 2019 season either. Luck is hard to figure out.
    • I appreciate it Lucky. Nothing wrong with being Dodds, he still has a lot of say and has his voice heard. Decisions can be tough sometimes and it takes someone willing to accept credit and blame for them, especially at an NFL level. Ballard has done that exceptionally, and most of the things he's done deserve a lot of credit, and I'm happy I get a little peek at what the guys do in scouting players every year.    I should give Reich a break though, he's trying to do what's best for the team. I just wish he was more of a risk-taker sometimes. However, I understand with Luck retiring it was tough on everybody. I think this year we can at least compete and with some luck (no pun intended), possibly make or win a SB. Our team has a lot of great talent (starting and depth), and that's something we haven't been able to say since the Polian days!
    • I guess that explains some things.  And I don't mean that as an insult, I just didn't know that about you.  I'm realizing I might have been looking at some of your previous posts over the years in the wrong light.  No judgement.  Sorry if I ever came across as harsh (or a straight-up donkey) in the past.  I just didn't know you as well as I thought I did.    I'll try to be more understanding going forward, even when we disagree about something.   (maybe @coltsfeva feels the same, I don't know.  If I'm not mistaken, there's been some back-and-forth between you two in the past...  I might be thinking of a different member, if so: apologies.  )   I was speaking kinda specifically about Ballard vs Dodds, ie: General Manager vs Assistant General Manager.  If I had a choice, I would choose Assistant General Manager (and not Assistant TO the General Manager for all you Office fans) ev-er-y time.  Being the General Manager is just not my gig.     And hopefully you'll be more understanding going forward of people in Ballards' position where dealing with people is basically the whole premise of their job.  If they didn't draft the guy you wanted or sign the FA you wanted, or even achieve the goals you wanted record-wise, please realize how much else they had to deal with on an inter-personal level that you don't have to deal with on a day-to-day basis.  Because I've been there, and it's beyond stressful trying to get 10-20 people to do their job, much less trying to get 50-100 people to their job better than the the other 50-100 on the other sideline...  
    • Why are you only going by last season?? Of course he was bad last season but he is now 47 years old. In 2006 with us he made 89.3% of his FG's and 100% of his extra points. He was also 5-5 in the playoffs at Baltimore and we won the SB. I am taking that kicker over anyone. Using last season as a gauge makes no sense. Vinny also had a few years in NE where he made over 90% of his FG's and 100% of his extra points. Using last year is nonsense.
