Talib In the Clear

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.
