Lucky they weren’t mobbed or gunned down waiting on BRPD to arrive. Happened close to victim’s house and you know people came out to check out the scene.

If Scotlandille had a battalion of properly trained HOA citizen patrolmen, who could police the area with the intrinsic knowledge needed to infiltrate the criminal element amongst this population, you’d never hear these stories again. This isn’t about Les, or Ed, or Joe. This is about a partnership between the community and the sheriff’s department in which arrest authority is given to citizens, along with the ability to search and seize large caches of US currency for any reason. No question asked.

They were victims dumbass. I know as an Alabama fan to see a gun related incident and not think the players were the ones with the guns.

From what ESPN says they called 911 and waited for police to arrive. Doesn’t sound like suspects to me.

Kelvin Joseph went to Scotlandville Magnet. Nothing has been confirmed that it was football, unless I missed. Ja'vonte Smart went to Scotlandville Magnet as well.
