I wouldn't testify against a multi-millionaire famous friend with a cop for a father, either.

That'd just be asking for a rough couple of years.

Taylor is a bonehead for doing something that caused him to get charged with felony assault. That - by definition - is boneheaded.


OK ya maybe I should have phrased that differently. It was a stupid thing to do, but Im sorry, waving a gun around does not deserve 16 years in jail. I dont even think it deserves 3.


Taylor is not a bonehead for turning down the plea bargain. He doesn't want to serve ANY time in prison, so, it was a good move. No one in their right mind with his ability to hire a top-notch lawyer would accept that deal.

However, I am a bit taken aback by your comment that waving a gun around in the air in public is not deserving of three years. What should it be deserving of? 6 Months? Well, if so, there will be a lot more gun waving :-t going on.

His "Boneheadeness" is more because of what he did and not because he rejected the deal...

He will walk away from this like every other athlete, sans Big Rae.

I feel sorry for the first athlete that "gets made an example of." It will happen one of these days. Some guy is going to screw up, and he will be prosecuted harshly because everyone else got off.

He either thinks he can get off or he's a dumbass.

As someone who has had a gun pointed directly at my head, I can't tell you how much a response like yours angers me. Whether or not Taylor pointed the gun, the message is still the same; I can kill you. For the years of nightmares and terrible flashbacks I'm sure his victim will suffer, Taylor deserves much more than three years in prison.

While I dont know that the other guy will be traumatized for life from this incident, I just think it would be irresponsible of our justice system to let people make threats with a lethal weapon like a gun, and give light sentences. They should charge them as if anyone who threatens to use a gun isn't bluffing.

What exactly did Taylor do and what was his reasoning again?
