    On this day we were forced to memorialize a felon and be lied to all day on how this individual (despite chances in life you and I would not get), was cleaning up his act. Cleaning up (???)while running after his fiancee and jumping in the back of the p/up.

    A man who over his criminal career included:

    * DUI
    * Assault
    * Drug Possession
    * Driving without a license or Insurance
    * serving alcohol to 3 underage teenagers in his hotel room
    * charges with criminal damage
    * Multiple gun charges including concealment

    Good people like your friends and family pass every day of our lives, but I for one am offended to have to listen to this tragic waste of a life. It does dishonor to the everyday working and good human beings of the world. Because he was a football player, this somehow made him special.
