The fact that everyone makes this exact joke about the Browns whenever any football player gets in trouble for anything kinda feels to me like how people think that Catholicism is the only religion that protects sex predators. It really lets everyone else off the hook, despite the fact that they all have the same problem.


SayNoToStim t1_jak481w wrote

Except both the Browns and the Catholic church have made managerial decisions that essentially protect sex offenders on a very prominent stage.


Sweatier_Scrotums t1_jak5tgr wrote

Yeah but my point is that that's happened many times in the NFL before. Hell, for 17 years I watched us lose every year to a rapist QB, and our other rival's best player was a murderer.

People have made jokes about Big Ben for almost 2 decades.

Ben and DeSean aren’t in the same tier of predator. Also do you remember how awful it was when fans of those teams played what about and minimized the suffering of victims?

Yeah that’s the murderer, the rapist QB is Big Ben. He’s obviously a Browns fan so rivals being Ravens and Steelers make sense.

keister_TM t1_jal4ald wrote

Personally, I’m not convinced there is or ever was a conspiracy against Kaepernick. I’m not going to outright deny that possibility though. No doubt he faced ridiculous backlash from fans/media for speaking out on his beliefs within a very important conversation, but there have been enough former players to suggest Kaepernick messed up a lot of potential contracts in the nfl behind the scenes that had nothing to do with his protests.


NotYourDude t1_jaln7kc wrote

Yeah idk about that one…. I don’t really like Kaeprnick myself its pretttttty objectively obvious that he was blackballed from the league after all the political and racial injustice stuff.


keister_TM t1_jam577b wrote

No it’s not. He had opportunities with other organizations that he didn’t want to take. Then he sued the league and afterwards, reportedly had a terrible workout to try to comeback. Why didn’t he have cameras at the workout? You’d think if he felt he should be in the league, he would show the public just how good he still is.

Again, this is just one person saying this but it makes sense. On top of that, warren sapp and Michael Irvin have given similar accounts

He only got charged with misdemeanors. He’s going to be drafted in the first round before the good teams even get a chance to consider him. The NFL has no problem employing pieces of shit if they’re good at what they do.


neddiddley t1_jam3887 wrote

Call me crazy, but if I even had a shot at getting drafted, let alone was considered the best player available, I’m wrapping myself in bubble wrap and barricading myself in my house until the draft rolls around.

the AJC story has more info, Carter got 3 tickets just in the fall semester, one of which was for 89 in a 45. this guy has zero education and virtually no socialization outside of football - that and the promise of a large NFL payday has made him into a complete sociopath. any state that lets this person keep his drivers license is asking for more people to be killed.

You’re right. We are all dumb.

Swerving out of the lane at high speeds in an illegal race that resulted in 2 fatalities is pretty minor.


Actaeus86 t1_jajbcpz wrote

Yes I understand that, but they aren’t felony charges or even anything related to the deaths. I expected felony charges if anything


Kidfreedom50 t1_jajcg8z wrote



Actaeus86 t1_jajfyya wrote

Good point, I’m sure they can always up the charges. Be interesting to see if he gets the “Ray Lewis treatment”


kilroy94 t1_jaifrmw wrote

Misdemeanor charges. He left Indy to deal with these issues and will most likely be back soon.

He made a dumb decision, something he hopefully doesn’t do again and learns from, but unfortunately the driver of the car in the accident had a .2 BAC and was driving over 100 mph. Jalen didn’t do any of that.


Merpninja t1_jairnye wrote

If Jalen Carter wasn't also intoxicated and racing the driver who crashed, why did he flee the scene? why was he at the scene of the crash in the first place if he weren't also going 100mph?


[deleted] t1_jaiwbyc wrote

None of that helps prove charges against him


Merpninja t1_jaiwpnf wrote

Your point? He is lucky to only be facing charges this minor. They are likely to get more severe before they are dropped.


BUDDHAKHAN t1_jaj9yec wrote

I guarantee they are going over tons of film at the clubs, checking credit/debit card purchases. If he was drinking they'll find out


Wayyyy_Too_Soon t1_jakd2ug wrote

It’s pretty strong circumstantial evidence. There are also reports that there are numerous cameras that captured both cars racing.


[deleted] t1_jakdac8 wrote

The latter is real evidence potentially if math works right. The former wouldn’t be enough


Wayyyy_Too_Soon t1_jake660 wrote

It’s all real evidence. Just because a single piece of information is not enough to justify a conviction, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t add to our overall understanding of what happened and would contribute to an eventual conviction, along with other pieces of evidence.


[deleted] t1_jaketd4 wrote

I meant the former wouldn’t be enough on its own. I am a lawyer


kilroy94 t1_jairzff wrote

Because he did a dumb thing, like I mentioned. Imagine the terrifying nature of all of this though. Going from the best day of your life to seeing what he saw. I won’t make excuses for him, but legally, this won’t have huge repercussions.


Merpninja t1_jaiscmx wrote

I hope he feels awful over this, but denying it completely after he fled the scene shows little remorse. And his other teammate that ALSO fled was charged with racing in a separate incident just last week. Don't act like they're learning anything from this.

Great players have dropped in the draft for far less.


kilroy94 t1_jaishe8 wrote

Who am I to say they haven’t? I understand your point, but again legally, these are misdemeanor charges


Merpninja t1_jaiu2r2 wrote

This isn't about the charges. It's about him seeing his teammate die in front of him, and his first reaction is to flee, lie to the police, and act like he wasn't there.

Stop with the "imagine your best night ever being ruined by your own actions :(((" type shit. I do not feel bad or sorry for him at all. The only thing this proves to the NFL teams scouting him is that he is a POS. It doesn't matter what he gets sentenced with in the end.


EminentBean t1_jaj8y2g wrote

He incentivized and participated in the horrific death of his two friends.

It’s a time to take full responsibility.


kilroy94 t1_jaj9bxb wrote

I didn’t say a dang thing about his career or his talent. I simply said that that the charges aren’t as severe, right or wrong. The headline makes it sound like he’s going to jail, but he only has two misdemeanors against him. He’ll get a fine, and a slap on the wrist. The scrutiny will remain on the car that crashed and the people who lost their lives.


SinCityNinja t1_jajhkeq wrote

I'd like to hear a lawyers response about whether or not he could be held liable for the other cars deaths if it's proven he was drag racing them. I know from other crimes if someone dies while you're committing a crime with them you're held liable


fwo75o3jh t1_jak2s61 wrote

Check those three articles. All three are cases in Georgia where street racers died, and the other racer was charged with vehicular homicide. Carter can and likely will be charged with vehicular homicide, along with a host of other charges.


Teantis t1_jb4ifzc wrote

Yeah but were any of them star football players from UGA? Because idk if I have so much faith in the execution if blind justice from a Georgia DA office.

Yeah I considered mentioning that actually. That's a hopeful sign it might actually get charged. Dunno if it's enough to overcome cynicism about an SEC football star though


angry_slav_esq t1_jak4gvh wrote

Lawyer here! I too would like to hear the response of a Georgia lawyer who practices criminal law. First, it appears that the defendant has just been charged with misdemeanors. Without a felony charge, the Georgia felony murder statue does not come into play.

Here is the Georgia murder statute. Look at (c). Takeaway from this, obviously, have to commit a felony and cause a death.

Here is a succinct blog article on felony murder in Georgia. Takeaways from this, you can get a felony murder charge from the death of a co-defendant.

Here is a recent article in which a Georgian defendant was charged with felony murder and vehicular manslaughter in a case where street racing occurred. The person who died was the opponent driver. A key difference in this case is that both the defendant and deceased fled the police prior to the crash that lead to the death. Fleeing or attempting to elude may be the felony used to charge felony murder in this analogous case. It could also be an instance where the prosecutor is overcharging.

I’ve spent too much time thinking about this and should eat dinner…so…

Tl; dr: maybe? There is a recent analogous instance where someone was charged with felony murder stemming from a race where the opponent racer died. I’m not sure what felony they’d charge to get to felony murder in the present case. Reckless driving and racing appear to be capped as misdemeanors in GA. I think you should ask a lawyer.
