    Ok so Marvin Harrison shot at someone with armor piercing bullets and actually hit the man in the hand, injuring him. He also injured a child when broken glass struck him after Marvin fired one of the shots.

    Why is this still ignored?
    If Pacman shot at anyone, he would be thrown out of the league.

    I feel that what Marvin did is worse than anything that Pacman Jones has done. Yet there is no punishment and it seems that even the police aren't going to arrest him.

    I'm pretty sure if i shot at someone running out of a bar, injured 2 people with armor-piercing rounds, and then hid the gun at my car wash, i would be sitting in jail right now.

    How many people does he have to shoot before something is done about this?

    I'm really confused about the coverage on this story. The last thing I heard was a couple of weeks maybe even a month ago when the said that Harrison was able to produce a gun in his home that was similar to the one found at the car wash. Am I wrong about that? It definitely seems like the media is ignoring this story. I don't care one way or the other how it turns out, but it seems as though some of the details about that night need to be released.

    You sound like the bafoons who come on our site and spout off a bunch of lies about spygate. Most of your post is not even accurate - ( in regards to what happened with that situation). I believe the police are still investigating the issue, and I dont think they have said for certain Marvin is the shooter. We need to wait for all the facts.

    I disagree. Lets judge now, wait for the facts later, and then judge some more. Anyone with a forehead that big must be guilty. Also I heard that he plays for the Colts. That's G-U-I-L-T-Y in my book.

    well then tell me what is inaccurate.

    it should be easy, i'm a baffoon.:cool:

    Do you honestly believe that he didn't shoot the gun?

    Either way, it was his gun, he was involved, and i'd be willing to bet a large sum of money that he was the one who fired the gun. But i guess they are still "investigating"......

    But i'll rephrase it so everyone doesn't jump down my throat: If Marvin Harrison was the shooter, than this is worse than anything Pacman has gotten in trouble for

    This happened a while ago and he hasn't been charged, and the police said he wasn't a suspect. It's a non-story. Obviously whatever information initially came out turned out to be wrong. Unless, of course, this is all part of the big pro-Colts, anti-Patriots conspiracy, involving even the Philly DA.

    Ok here is what PFT wrote in the first article about this incident:

    Harrison was involved in an argument with the victim at the ironically-named “Playmakers” bar. As the victim left and was walking to his car, Harrison was following. Shots rang out, and the victim was struck in the hand. A young girl was struck by broken glass from a car that had been struck by a bullet.

    Ballistic tests showed that the bullets came from a custom-made Belgian gun. Harrison owns one of the guns in question.

    Questioned about it at a Philadelphia car wash that he owns, Harrison admitted that he owns such a gun, but that it has never left his home.

    Later, the gun was found in a bucket at the car wash. Tests revealed that the gun was the same gun involved in the shooting, and that seven bullets were fired at the time.


    so what part of this did i miss?

    The part where the police interviewed him and found no basis for charges.

    So, you're saying that the story is a made up lie.

    The part quoted by Keegs leaves plenty of basis for charges.

    Man seen following a woman.
    The woman is shot in the hand.
    The shots came from a very rare Belgian handgun.
    The man seen following her owns a Belgian handgun.
    The man is questioned at his car wash where he claims the handgun never left his house.
    Police find the Belgian handgun at the car wash and determine that this is the gun used to fire at the woman.

    Keegs is asking a simple question. Is this information all false? Because if it isn't, then I agree with Keegs that he whole Harrison situation has been swept under a rug. Pacman was tossed for being at the scene of a crime (i.e. he didn't shoot anybody). Nor was Pacman convicted of anything in Las Vegas. So how is Pacman's case different from Harrison's?

    Just did a little research.

    despite what people are claiming about the police letting Harrison off, that's not the case at all. The latest on the story is this:

    Police sources said a witness has come forward claiming Harrison shot a man in the hand at a garage Harrison owns.

    Police have said Harrison's gun was used in the April 29 shooting.

    Police sources said investigators recovered Harrison's gun in a bucket at the scene.

    Investigators said just days before the shooting, Harrison was involved in an altercation with the victim at a bar Harrison owns.

    Those sources also said Harrison told detectives he was at the garage at the time of the shooting and the gun used belongs to him.

    The Indianapolis Colts football player has not been charged with a crime.

    Currently, a special prosecutor is still looking at the case.

    Police sources said investigators are waiting for DNA tests to come back before they move forward with the case.

    Also the part where the shooting took place outside the bar. It was at the carwash. And the part about the gun in a bucket was wrong too. Marvin turned his gun over to police. And the part about Marvin being at the shooting. He showed up to the carwash shortly after the shooting.

    Pretty much everything that radio guy said on ESPN was incorrect in some way.

    also the way you wrote it makes it seem like 2 seperate incidents....where they???

    I don't know I havent really followed the story. But I think the guys point is a good one how annoying was it to read all the unsubstantiated stuff about spygate and than while spygate is still warm pats fans shouldn't be so quick to point fingers.

    excatly which parts are wrong so we can all be on the same page. I do think the story is not getting the coverage it should compared to other ones i think all coverage among althletes should be equal and in this case it is clearly not. and you seem to know the most about it.

    i doubt that is true i think any "superstar" fottball player would get talked about here I don't really have an opinion eitherway but I still think there should be ewaul coverage and there is not. When PacMan was being investageted ever new detail that came out what a fairly big story in this case hardly anyone knows anything

    Marvin Harrison DID NOT shoot anyone, it was his gun, but he did not fire it. Plus, Marvin would never do such a thing, he needs a gun to protect himself..Hec, every player does...people are gonna try to rob you if u make millions a year..

    nowhere in that article does it say that Marving was not there.
    Marvin himself said he wasn't involved. That's all..... There is a big difference.

    The carwash is outside... the shooting took place outside the bar. Unless it is an indoor carwash, and the guy was in his car washing it at the time, i am right. The article you provided said "The shooting occurred about 5 p.m. Tuesday up the block from a garage and car detail shop that Harrison owns at 25th and Thompson streets, police said."

    The only thing in the article that is any different than what i've read, says that Marvin handed the gun over to the police. (which we can't be sure that's even accurate).

    You tried, but failed. Stop defending Marvin.

    As of right now...

    Marvin owns a bar and a carwash.

    About two weeks prior to the shooting the guy that was shot got into with Marvin at his bar and was kicked out.

    The guy that was shot went to the carwash and was involved in an altercation and was shot in the hand. He initially tried to hid the fact that he was shot when he went to the hospital and then lied about the location where he was shot.

    A little boy was injured by flying glass.

    A third "victim" hired an attorney to contact police to say that Marvin shot him in the shoulder. (There hasn't been anything more about this since the initial reports. This may be where the witness part of the story came from, the media reports since have said there are no witnesses.)

    Police determined that the gun used was a unique Belgian handgun.

    Marvin owns this unique gun and turned it over to police. Police did not find the gun in a bucket.

    Marvin claims that he was not at the carwash at the time of the shooting and that he showed up shortly after.

    Police have questioned Marvin about the incident.
