    I'm just sick of hearing about the thuggery in Pro Football. It's really that simple. I'm not trying to make any other judgement calls here, at least not in this thread :)

    I be wrong to think that I could suppose that DB's will be the 9ers main focus with those 6 selections in the first two days of the draft.:(

    Gotcha. I read it as "football players are thugs", which rereading it is not what you said.
    Sorry about that.
    I was having an argument with myself.

    You don't see that players are treated differently than the rest of us?

    We have all kinds of real stupid laws in this state. In the last couple of years alone they have made it illegal to fish recreationally in vast parcels of some of the best areas of the ocean. These closures will last FOREVER.
    Want a clue as to how ass-backwards crap is around here? The humane society runs our Fish and Game department, true story.

    Treated differently? In most cases...yes. In that case? I don't know. It was his first offense so I wouldn't be surprised if a normal person with a really good lawyer could have gotten the same sort of deal. It sucks but it's life.

    Chris Culliver charged with a felony, two misdemeanors in hit-and-run case
    Posted by Curtis Crabtree on April 9, 2014

    San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver was arrested on March 28 after an incident where he allegedly fled the scene of a hit-and-run accident with a bicyclist.

    According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, Culliver was officially charged Wednesday with one felony and two misdemeanors by the Santa Clara District Attorney’s office. He is scheduled to be arraigned at a hearing on Friday.

    The felony count stems from illegal possession of brass knuckles that Culliver allegedly used to threaten a witness that attempted to keep Culliver from fleeing the area.

    The misdemeanor charges are for hit-and-run causing injury and hit-and-run causing property damage from the accident with the bicyclist.

    If convicted on the felony charge, Culliver would face a prison sentence of 16 months, two years or three years, though a judge could elect to impose probation with no jail time or up to one year.

    Culliver missed the entire 2013 season after suffering a torn ACL in August.

    A lot of these kids don't come from good homes. Plus when you give a young guy a lot of money (and fame) bad things are bound to happen - no matter what his background is.

    Using brass knuckles IS a felony - unless the other person is applying a comparable level of force and you can claim self-defense. In this case - because it was just a threat, and they we're NOT used - he won't be convicted, on that particular count. Remember, you can charge anyone with anything. It's often done for leverage as most of these cases go to plea.

    We're not completely crazy in CA. :barefoot:

    I love the ballsiness of the guy that prevented Culliver from fleeing the scene. Must have been a Rams Fan that saw an opportunity to get Culliver off the field and hurt the Niners roster!

    The family shunned him and makes no secret of the fact that they loathe Little. And they have plenty of reason because of what he did and how he handled the situation. The amends he made were a small settlement and that was that.

    FYI it wasn't a young girl that was killed it was a wife and mother. IMO if that type of thing happened today the punishment would be significantly harsher, Little essentially got away with murder, a normal person like you and I would have been in jail for at least a few years.

    You could well be right about that Les. I have a cousin who struck and killed two cyclists while driving under the influence of alcohol. He is currently serving a 24 - 30 year sentence.
