Marvin Harrison Has Gun Confiscated

Police confiscated a 9 mm handgun from former Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison during a traffic stop Wednesday. Harrison was stopped three blocks from the Philadelphia garage he owns where, you may recall, in 2008, three people were injured in a shooting. Harrison’s name came up in that case, but he was never charged. Police are testing Harrison’s gun to see if it is related to the ’08 shooting.

ESPN the Magazine’s Shaun Assael described Wednesday’s incident:

"The 37-year-old former Pro Bowl receiver was driving the wrong way down the one-way street in a Cadillac Escalade when the patrolman stopped him along with the driver of a second car that was trailing him, the sources said.

According to the law enforcement sources, the patrolman saw Harrison place something that appeared to be a weapon in the seat console of his car. When the officer asked him to step out of the vehicle, Harrison produced a car registration and a permit to carry a weapon, both of which were in order. When he was asked whether he had a weapon, however, he answered no, the sources said.

At that point, the sources added, the officer said that he had probable cause to search the vehicle and found a weapon in the seat console."

C'mon dude, get real.  Did you even read the story? If someone voluntarily handed you a CCW or its equivalent, then denied having a firearm on his person, wouldn't you then automatically think, 'then why the hell did you hand me this CCW?' When is it time to stop pulling the race card anytime a black person is involved in anything, be it positive or negative?

I would lose some of the inflamatory remarks from your blog, but over all you give a descent discription of some possible inconsistancies. I enjoyed reading your post.

However, he failed to mention that he had a handgun in the SUV, which he was required to do by law, the source noted.

The cops took the gun, which is registered to a man who lives in Philadelphia, the source said.

 

1) He failed to mention that he had a handgun in the SUV, which he was required to do by law .

 

2) The gun is registered to a man who lives in Philadelphia. NOT EVEN HIS GUN .

 

End of Story!

Wah the police won't let me commit crimes because I am black.
Wah they are picking on Black people that commit crimes.
Wah I should be allowed to shoot people without being bothered.
Wah they don't bother White people when they shoot people.

If you think about, if you hand a po-po a gun permit you are telling him (yes i have a gun) why else would you give him your gun permit?

so it could of been NO IDIOT I DONT HAVE A GUN BUT I JUST GAVE YOU A GUN PERMIT!!!! WHAT THE LLEH DO YOU THINK?

That is my take on it. But who knows?
