We are on 25 pages for Mike Goodson. A scrub running back whos produced nothing in his 4 year in the nfl. There is a reason this guy is on his 3rd team in 3 years. To Jet fans, its like Adrian Pederson was arrested.
This guy should have been off the team yesterday but because its a idzik signing, he cant make this decision too quickly.
No one can condone what Goodson did the other night. Being intoxicated enough to wind up parked in the middle lane of route 80 is obviously a major issue. That alone should result in the Jets suspending and fining him.
However, until the gun charge sticks, there's no reason for the Jets to let this guy walk. Let's all take a deep breath and let the investigation run it's course.
Only clueless fans think teams care that a player is coming home at 3 am. Or that a driver would have a clue as to who is or isn't a felon. BTW, was his friend a felon?

And let's not forget that it is customary to let the legal process run its course. I am not in favor hasty action before all the facts are in. Did Goodson own the gun? Did he own the big bag of pot? Let the police and the legal system do their jobs. Then, and only then, do you take action. If he is going to be charged with major offenses, then you dump him. If he is charged with only having a joint and being stupid enough to be in a car with someone he shouldn't be with, then you take action that is more in line with the offense.
A Class 1 Felony is equivalent to RAPE! The same penalty as rape for videotaping a public official without their consent... but no penalty to the government for doing the same exact thing.
We are losing our rights in this country at an alarming rate.
We are not talking about drinking beers with the boys and banging chicks other than your wife. We are talking about breaking the law on multiple fronts.
Having fun is great, acting like an ass is not.
Reading the comments over at youtube, here's an interesting one :

Why post a 2yr old story? The charges were dismissed in Sept. 2011, with Circuit Court Judge David Frankland stating, ""A statute intended to prevent unwarranted intrusions into a citizen’s privacy cannot be used as a shield for public officials who cannot assert a comparable right of privacy in their public duties. Such action impedes the free flow of information concerning public officials and violates the First Amendment right to gather such information."

This is OLD OLD OLD NEWS... What a jacked up bullcrap thing to post...!!!
Update: It is Not, Repeat Not illegal to film police in Illinois... This was thrown out and all charges were dismissed...
It is legal to film police in all 50 states period... Know your rights...
I think this debate is hitting home on more than Goodson, its more of a morality, right/wrong issue.
Driving around drunk, with a heater, and reef rock, is not acceptable social behavior, nor should it be considered so. Whether Goodson is guilty of this, well have to wait and see.
This could have ended far worse if there were an argument, traffic accident, or confrontation at somewhere as mundane as the mcdonalds on the corner after a night of drinking. See it all the time on the news.
I to am leaning toward the " on unconditional release"'of this young man. I have my own 20 year old and
