Extreme Cardinals Fan Stupidity

In the days before the Arizona Cardinals and Philaldelphia Eagles were scheduled to play in the NFC title game, the home of Donovan McNabb, who lives in Chandler, Arizona during parts of the off-season, was vandalized by two of the biggest idiots in the known universe.

CBSSports.com has obtained the police report of the incident and portions of the report follows.

McNabb told police that there was $2,000 worth of damage to his property as a result of the vandalism. Police say they arrested two men for the incident, Ryan B. Hanlon and Rex Perkins.

How did the police find these two dopes? In one of the acts of vandalism, according to the report, Perkins used a cardboard box. But he forgot that printed on the box were his name and address. So police went to the home of Perkins where he answered the door wearing an Arizona Cardinals hat.

You can't make this stuff up.

Isn't there a show called "The World's Dumbest Criminals" or something like that?

One last word: What the criminals did wasn't just stupid and insensitive. Burning things in the front yard of a black man has horrific connotations and shows a lack of historical perspective.

Also, why this incident has received such little attention is amazing to me. If Eagles fans had done this to Kurt Warner, it'd be front page news everywhere.

Anyway, here are portions of the police report. It begins with the officer describing his arrival at McNabb's house:

"On 01-17-09 at approximately 1703 hours, I was dispatched to (address redacted) regarding a criminal damage report. When I arrived, I contacted the reporting person, Donovan McNabb, who is a professional football quarterback employed by the Philadelphia Eagles franchise. McNabb stated unknown suspects had damaged yard.

"The Philadelphia Eagles and the Arizona Cardinals are scheduled to play in the National Football Conference (NFC) Championship Game at 1300 hours on 01-18-09. According to McNabb, someone had hung an Arizona Cardinal flag in a tree in his front yard on Thursday 01-15-09, and he left the flag there until the next morning because he thought it was humorous. On 01-17-09 at approximately 0200 hours, McNabb said his family returned to the residence and noticed a cardboard sign had been staged in his driveway. The sign read "Go Cards" on one side and "Beat Philly" on the reverse.

"The next day McNabb said they noticed the smell of fuel emanating from the lawn and saw that someone had used fuel to scribe messages all over the his lawn. The western most areas of the lawn had a message reading, 'Go Kurt' referencing the Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner. Adjacent to that message was another that read, 'Go Cards.' The patch of grass just south of the driveway also had a message reading, "I [heart] AZ." McNabb estimated the cost of replacing the sod in his front yard at approximately $2,000.00 dollars. McNabb stated his residence is equipped with surveillance video, but he was not sure when he would be able to access that video."

Later the report talks about the officer tracking down one of the perps and the perp immediately admitting to the alleged crime. The funny thing is, according to the report, Perkins immediately sold out his accomplice. The report states they used diesel fuel to burn the grass and that the fuel was put into a canister normally used to contain pesticide.

This is a scary part. According to the report, the two men read in the newspaper that McNabb lived in Chandler. Then cooked up the idea to vandalize his home. How'd they find his address? According to police, they looked up McNabb's personal info on the Internet.

It was that easy finding and vandlizing his property.

The report concludes with Perkins allegedly telling officers that they knew their acts were illegal and that the criminal masterminds "didn't think it through." Hanlon allegedly told police, the report states, that he "understood what he did was against the law, but because the 'grass grows back,' he thought the situation would be looked at as along the lines of 'toilet papering' someone's house."

Has Freeman ever wrote an article that didn't have to do with racism. Seriously, can he write something that don't involve race. Would he have written this if it happened to a white athlete. I think not! Freeman obviously hates white people and continuously has to spew his garbage on this website. Freeman, Do us all a favor and take your racial hatred and your racial agenda somewhere else. Everybody is sick of it.

Maybe we just enjoy watching you make a fool out of yourself.  Keep the replies/rebuttals coming, it's impressive to see someone's emotions so gracefully prepared.  I especially like the eloquent use of !!!! and ?????.  The point of this article, if you can call a copy and paste of a police report as such, should be about the stupidity of the offenders but goes way off topic when race was brought in. 

As for the ease of finding Mcnabb's Chandler residence, I live in Nashville and don't even need the internet to know where a lot of the Titans live.  They are, like you said, professional athletes and public figures.  They tend to stand out a little more than the average citizen.

Yet it's everyone else that's wrong here and not you...
