    ‘Plaxico’ sounds like it could be the name of some sort of plastic used to make cheap purses or children’s toys.

    Let this be a lesson to all my AAs.. They are making examples out of us now.. We HAVE to be more careful about how we do things. First we saw what could happen if we didnt have protection (Eddie Curry & Shawn Taylor) and now we see what happens when we do (Plaxico & Vernon Forest)

    Reading comments from black people that are happy another black person who is successful is failing or losing his success over a MISTAKE sometimes makes me HATE being Black…………..(its depressing)

    “Reading comments from black people that are happy another black person who is successful is failing or losing his success over a MISTAKE sometimes makes me HATE being Black…………..(its depressing)”

    Umm family there is no “mistake” here nor anything to hate being black about thats simply asinine – most people are commenting because irregardless of Plax’s success there is a minimum mandatory charge which KNOWN throughout this country in NY , especially New York city there are no unlicensed handguns ALLOWED – period. This is mainly residual from Shyne/Puffys shootout and couple other instances in the city involving guns. The Giants every year host a seminar with the Police regarding Handguns and not to have them in the City – Now how long was Plax with the team …? SMDH

    Is he an actor also because he looks like this guy from an episode of Law & Order Criminal Intent (my favorite show)

    Plaxi did not shoot himself in that context as he was aiming at himself or anyone else. He was carrying a gun for protection. As we see from current history that Athletes are now targets for criminals. Plax is not a criminal, he just made an ill choice to carry the gun, and proceeded to injure himself in the process. He did not intentionally take out a gun to shoot someone, No one else was hurt. He did not have the gun with the intention of hurting people.

    P.S. regular people get caught with guns all the time. It’s just not going to make the cover of the papers.

    P.S #2 It’s hard being black.

    Another athlete who’s as dumb as a can of paint. I can’t front though–the boy is finer than frog hair! lol

  • TeeRockJelli

    @Ms Littlejohn

    his license to carry the gun expired in the state of Florida. He did not make an illegal purchase of a gun.

  • Ms. Littlejohn

    @ TeeRockJelli

    Unlicensed is illegal to the police. Same as driving with a suspended/expired license, fishing with an expired license, boating with a suspended/expired license (etc)…

  • Michelle

    Wow…..everyone is so judgmental. Plax is not a thug. He is a nice person, who has made a mistake. I knew him personally in college, I went to Michigan State while he played there. I don’t know the circumstances (other than whats in the news) of htis situation, but I do know that he does not deserve 3.5 years in jail. We all make mistakes.

  • TeeRockJelli

    I see your point. But keep it real, fishermen, drivers keep their boats, fishing rods, nets, cars until they renew their license. How are we to know he wasn’t going to renew his license?

  • TeeRockJelli

    everyone makes mistakes including police.

    it is what it is.

  • NoooooooBoo

    And before I forget…and what?

  • TeeRockJelli

    @ NoBooooo

    You are taking this issue to the left I see…

    So I will too

    Until we address the issue of as you say: black men killing themselves over colors, for it is that very reason he had the gun in the first place. Now because they are rich they cannot enjoy driving their cars, putting gas in their cars, or even being in their homes… {oh how I can go in right now on this topic but it would take too long)

    maybe it’s time for us to really look at our laws and check for flaws because a person selling illegal drugs should not get more or equal time to a rapist or child molester…

    here we go…
