I had said in previous comments that I would not let Ray Lewis fail. I am good at what I do. Besides, I gave Ray Lewis the same Power that I give President Obama, that is the Power to succeed in all endeavors. This has been a great month for Baltimore. The Ravens winning the AFC championship, going to the second inauguration of Obama, and now winning the Superbowl.

I took a break from politics to do this but now back to work on my main goal. That is the defeat of Lapiere and his NRA crowd. I watched his sick performance on Fox News
Sunday and cannot wait to go take down this FOOL! Everybody get ready this is going to be FUN.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  Ray Lewis failed years ago when he (8+ / 0-)

    was involved in a murder with two friends. He got off by making a deal with the prosecutors to testify against the two others, and by pleading guilty to a lesser charge of obstructing justice. I don't know if he served any time, but I don't think he did. I watched the trial from start to finish and it was a travesty. The fix was in. The goal was not to identify and punish the murderers, but to make sure that Ray Lewis would be able to continue his football career. The trial was disgusting and he is disgusting. What a sorry example for our children.

      His only punishment has been the need to fend off slobbering fans.

    •  Not only Mr. Lewis, but (0+ / 0-)

      his companions were also acquitted of the charges. No one has ever served jail time for the deaths of Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar.

      Still, it sure was an exciting game last night, wasn't it? Plenty entertaining, right?

    •  Actually Ray Lewis sat in jail a couple weeks (0+ / 0-)

      prior to being released on bail. The reason nobody was convicted of murder was because the men who died were the aggressors in the fight and their deaths were considered self-defense. They attacked members of Lewis' party at a night club and hit one of them over the head with a champagne bottle. It only took the jury 5 hours to reach their decision.

      During the trial, Lewis agreed to testify against other men in his party who were involved in the fight. What you call a travesty was simply the way the justice system works. The prosecutor knew that Lewis wasn't guilty of murder, but he used the threat of the murder charges to get him to testify against his friends.
      Here is a timeline of the incident and the trial.

      all the negative perceptions about himself around. Only the die hard racist continue to drag up past run-ins with the law. But you are not a racist, right? Just objective?

      •  You should have seen some of the comments (0+ / 0-)

        on NFL.com the past few days. It seems an awful lot of people are very concerned with the number of children he has fathered and by how many women. Many of these same folks felt the need to call him a thug. One even called Anquan Boldin a thug. I left quite a few comments asking these folks if they had been to any cross-burnings lately.

      •  So,let's see. He was involved in two murders. (1+ / 0-)
        Recommended by:

        He had information that would assist the police in identifying the murderers and bringing them to justice. That is beyond dispute. But for some reason he didn't give the police that information as any good citizen should. He lied about what he knew and ducked his responsibility. So the prosecutors, knowing that he was lying, resorted to the usual hammer that works with sorry men like Lewis and gave him a choice. And of course Lewis wilted and finally told some story. But who knows if that story was true or not. So Lewis pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice. In case you don't know it that is a crime.

        Now, years later, Lewis has taken advantage of the hero worship that football players receive and taken advantage that people forget things over time and he has improved his image. And you seem to think that proves somehow that he was a victim in this whole sordid mess.

        I watched the trial from start to finish and he was no victim. He was orchestrating much of the testimony that ultimately was presented.

        And out of all this you had the nerve to ask me if I am a racist. How insulting, but that kind of crazy logic comes from people like Lewis and his sycophants like you.

    He's been making Tim Tebow look like an atheist of late. I'm glad he's done, good riddance!
