Could Former Alabama Star Henry Ruggs Get Away With Killing Woman
Henry Ruggs was doing 156 MILES PER HOUR.
I don't believe my personal vehicle will go 156mph!
Let that sink in for a moment. First off, I am a huge Alabama fan. I love football.
I think Ruggs is one of the best wide receivers in Alabama history.
His deadly combo of 4.2 speed with hands and toughness, was the best I have ever seen.
How much does that matter, now?
Before you say it doesn't, think about that. Fame matters. Athletes matter in America. Especially the big fast ones that blow our minds with their highlights. I'm not convinced that it won't play a big part in this case.
156 MILES PER HOUR.
I still can not get over that. I can't get over another fact. Several years ago, the NFL as well as major universities (I wouldn't be surprised if Alabama has one) developed a system to try and prevent what Henry Ruggs did in Las Vegas.
You receive a player identification card as a rookie in the NFL.
On the BACK of that card?
A phone number. That number, players are told, id available to you 24/7. It's a contracted security company that will babysit the millionaires.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, THEY WILL DRIVE THEM ANY TIME. ANY LOCATION. EVEN AT 4 AM!
Players have to think, nah, I'm fine. I don't need a ride.
Ruggs, really wasn't fine. He should have called the number. I lived through a similar event in St. Louis with a Rams player, Leonard Little. Leonard was a big stud. A big star.
He got drunk and killed a woman. His talented lawyer saw that he never did a day in jail. A few years later, HE DID IT AGAIN.
Another DUI that really caused a stir. His lawyer got him off again. I remember how upset the victims son and husband were after that verdict.
Nothing surprises me and I kind of expect a high priced attorney to make an argument and get Henry Ruggs off in relation to this crime.
I will not be shocked if Ruggs gets away with it, even if the facts make him look 100 percent guilty.
On the Steve & DC show, attorney Steven Mezrano explained how he might defend Henry Ruggs, if he was his lawyer.
