Hi Guest,

Just a note to point out our TBP-initiated drive to raise funds for the Bulls Football IPF - doing our share, and more.  Please consider donating at least $23 to the effort, and passing on to others as well.  You can read more about the project at the link above.

this is an ideological difference that just isn't going to be resolved in this discussion, especially without knowing what the original offense was that got his license suspended in the first place.

i don't believe taking someone's freedom for a non-violent, victimless crime is justified or moral. it's really that simple to me. 

if it's a matter of taking one's freedom for a procedural violation, I will always choose to err on the side of freedom over tossing someone in jail. I'm *NOT* saying there should be no consequences, but jail isn't simply the right & moral consequence simply because HCSO says so.

He had 3 "procedural" violations.  How many until he is held accountable to some extent.

I can tell you what happens when the answer is "never."

That's what I love/hate about this place.  6 pages of arguments for and against before anyone knows actual details.

semantics. you and triple b all over it

it's dumb to put people in JAIL over unpaid traffic tickets.

God forbid someone should be held accountable for their poor choices in life.

When you’re 19, you should be allowed to buy a gun. But not be expected to comprehend how dates and a driver’s license work.

he shouldn't have been brought to jail by the cops for failure to appear regardless.

take him directly to the magistrate to appear, not to jail.

smh.

Maybe they should make him breakfast and help him get dressed each morning while they're at it.

He won't be the first person to go to jail and he won't be the last person. It hurts a little more because he's a USF football player. However at some point, we have to take responsibility for our actions (or in-action) - say forgetting about a parking ticket and throwing it in your glove box. Yes, it sucks... but that is part of adulting (some people do it better than others).

When I was 18, I was in the military. I can imagine seeing the look on the commanding officer's face if I missed movement. But sir, I'm only 18. I didn't realize I had to be at the pier in time.

I bet he wouldn’t have said, “Don’t worry about it, sport.” and tousled your hair.

This is a great sign. Let's hope he stays on the team and is as productive on defense as Mike Ford was running the ball.

When are we going to bring Ford back to campus to do scared straight seminars on drivers license? Until that happens, I see this continuing.
