Talib In the Clear

Talib is now free to punch the next person that pisses him off.
According to Aqib Talib‘s attorney, the charges for assault with a deadly weapon have been dropped and Talib is off the hook as far as his legal issues go.

“I guess the district attorney, in preparing for trial, had a chance to evaluate the case,” Talib’s attorney told the Times Monday. “The bottom line is that the complainant is sitting in jail as a repeat child molester and has prior cases of the same nature.”

So it’s not that Talib didn’t do anything, it’s just that his accuser is such a piece of shit that no one cares if he got pistol-whipped. That’s an interesting strategy from his attorney. Because since the charges have been dropped, he could have said anything he wanted about the situation whether it was true or not. “My client was tending to a basket of newborn kittens when the alleged assault took place!” I wonder why he chose to emphasize the fact that his accuser was a child molester and not that Talib was wrongfully accused.

Maybe Talib doesn’t mind having a reputation of beating the hell out of child molesters. Or maybe part of the deal was that Talib not proclaim his outright innocence since that would lead to questions about why he isn’t suing the Dallas PD for wrongful arrest. Or maybe I’m putting too much thought into it and should just shut my mouth. He’s the best corner on the team and he’ll very likely be around for the whole season. I’m not going to punch a gift horse in the mouth.

I took the lawyer to be saying that the prosecutor finally realized that the witness/supposed victim is a scumbag liar.

The lawyer has been quite confident that Talib would walk from the start, and the team even Goodell seem to have been, too.

Grand jury not charging Texas dad for killing child molester. So, what’s the big deal about Talib shooting at a child molester? It should be a sport in Texas!

What concerns me is Talib will misbehave again and it will be worse. The first time it was fists, last time it was guns. What’s next actually killing someone? Here’s hoping Schiano can keep him in line and Talib has grown up enough to stay out of trouble.

I don’t know what to think anymore. Talib may be our best corner but that’s not really saying much anymore. He gets beat too much, gives up too much, and doesn’t use his brains much. I really hope he realizes he’s not above the law.
