    Obviously that's good - but it doesn't bring Taylor back. Anything short of life with no chance of parole, regardless of intent, would be a travesty.

    I was just getting ready to post this... This is from the AJC, a Atlanta based newspaper...

    It's the same article... Very little has been changed...

    Reading this really drives home the senselessness of all this.:(

    Re: Not Pats but NFL: Arrests made in Taylor killing

    So they don't believe this had something to do with Taylor's past?

    It was annoying how all the media talk after it happened centered around how Taylor's past caught up to him. I know it's naturally the conclusion people draw based on what's happened in Taylor's life, but if this turns out to be a completely random event, then all of that looks pretty dumb.

    Re: Not Pats but NFL: Arrests made in Taylor killing

    That stuff made me mad. Especially how they lumped in the spitting incident which has nothing to do with the so-called "off the field incidents" that they were trying to use in taking the "revenge" angle story. Not a very nice way to eulogize someone IMO. After spygate happened we all saw how the glare of the national media can be infuriating when malicious so I can really sympathize with how angry Redskins fans are at ESPN etc. right now.

    Two of the four have confessed, and it was random.

    I' so glad that Someone will pay for what they did. I hope that the court systems don't mess this up

    That they get the right persons is what is MOST important....because sometimes they will just grab anyone and pin things on them...senseless is just the beginning of it...

    What exactly does "random" mean? They may not have been trying to kill him, but it was his "brother-in-law" still. (The brother of his sister's boyfriend. He'd been at the house multiple times, at a birthday party, and mowing the lawn...)

    Re: Not Pats but NFL: Arrests made in Taylor killing

    Some of ESPN's coverage (as usual) was pathetic. They put together this little video covering his troubles off & on the field.

    What really pissed me off about the video was their making Taylor's hit on Brian Moorman in the pro bowl seem like one of those troubling moments.

    It's moments like that when I wonder if they employ editors at ESPN.

    Probably not. ESPN isn't a news organization anymore, its entertainment TV.

    Re: Not Pats but NFL: Arrests made in Taylor killing

    People who did it saying they didn't mean to do it
    ... isn't particularly persuasive.
    If you were on an assignment to kill ... and they caught you ...
    would you say?, Oh Yeah I Went There To Kill That Guy I Killed !



    This story is inconsistent with a random break-in of a home believed to be vacant.
    The burglary drill is they break in at night and get to keep whatever they remove from DOWNSTAIRS.
    The homeowner can listen all s/he wants, but must stay upstairs.
    If you come down, then they kill you.
    That's only fair. They gave you your chance. But you eyeballed them.

    After bursting into a bedroom you believe vacant ... why fire two shots?
    That would be inefficient and draw attention to your fund-raising activities.

    This is Florida, where most houses are ranches. There was no upstairs.

    Re: Not Pats but NFL: Arrests made in Taylor killing

    Has it been reported one way or another if it was a ranch? Even if most houses are raches, most people don't make millions every year like Taylor so he could afford a mansion if he wanted.

    Re: Not Pats but NFL: Arrests made in Taylor killing

    So, two guys who took part in the murder say it wasn't intentional and you actually believe them?

    Hey, I got some Gulf Coast property in New Mexico.. You wanna buy it?

    Burglars don't cut the PHONE line. Especially if they are trying to by-pass any potential security. Why? Because single dead line in an area is enough for any Security company do dispatch someone.

    I believe they weren't charged with premeditated murder because they wanted to ensure the conviction and I'd be willing to bet it was a plea deal.

    Re: Not Pats but NFL: Arrests made in Taylor killing

    I would say 50% are ranches.. but there are PLENTY of 2 story houses in FL as well. I've seen plenty of them.. Been inside a few as well.

    Fact is, though, you don't kick down a door and FIRE two shots if you believe the place to be vacant.

    In fact, any SMART burglar takes off if they hear something.

    This sounds like a bunch of BS to me. Who left the knife on Taylor's pillow??

    I think the GF shot him and I'm sticking with my theory.

    Re: Not Pats but NFL: Arrests made in Taylor killing

    Don't quote me on this, but I think the cut phone lines was refuted.

    Then again, there is another story every ten minutes down here, so who really knows...
