Running...from the Law

Two former football Stars are back in the headlines.
OJ Simpson, Heisman trophy winner and former pro football great turned actor. On the 13th anniversary of the acquittal in the murder trial of the century of his ex-wife, he was recently found guilty of robbing dealers of all things....autographed sports memorabilia at gunpoint. In 2006, he authored the book If I Did It and now the book has been thrown right back at him. He was jailed in Las Vegas, as unlikely as probable a place for your luck to run out.
Lawrence Phillips, the former 1990’s standout Nebraska Cornhusker running back, whose troubles with the law exposed his character flaws and imploded his professional football career had his day in court.

The sixth pick in the 1996 NFL draft proved to be a statistical bust and as his football career spiraled downward from missed practices, acts of insubordination, and lackluster play, Phillips continued to struggle to be an upstanding human being. In 2000, he was charged with domestic abuse of a woman at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

In a movie scene Hollywood could script and OJ Simpson could play, Lawrence Phillips was arrested for the following in August 2005. While professional football teams prepared for the upcoming season, Phillips turned his vehicle into an assault weapon after losing both his anger and a pickup game of football to a bunch of youths with the Los Angeles Coliseum in the background. The former football great now faces the “three strike your out” imprisonment penalty for Californian repeat offenders. Striking out in life seems an ironic baseball label for a running back used to running over people.

Go to http://www.lawrencephillips.info to read the truth about Lawrence Phillips which media will not publish although they have received this information over and over.

Media spoke with Phillips’ attorney on the day of sentencing but refused to print anything she said-rather they deceptively said she did not return telephone calls!

Notice that statements of (alleged) victims are never quoted. Flores’ statement during Phillips’ sentencing was that his “leg was hurt during the ACCIDENT”!!! Selective hype comes from those (prosecutor, media, etc.) who care nothing about alleged victims, other than to use them for their own agenda!!!

Regularly read the website above to keep updated about appeals, where the cover-ups and deception that media, prosecutors and judges have gotten away with so far will be exposed–this time the end will be different!!!

Time will tell it all and California Supreme Court has opened up the process!!!

People stop being sheep!!! Stop blindly hating & seek the truth!

sports truth,
This was not the first comment I expected to see on this posting. I will reprint a retraction if the California Supreme Court over rules Phillips latest problems with the law. You are really passionate about this.

Nothing being a sports nut I have no idea who Lawrence Phillips is or really care. He doesnt pump my gas, drill my teeth, sign my pay check or even read my blog so in my book he doesnt exist. And OJ, well I just loved those Naked Gun movies!
