Redskins safety Sean Taylor dies

Recommended Posts

So by Sean hiring someone to mow his lawn he associated with him? Because one of these kids was at his sister's birthday party he associated with him? Check out one of the suspects myspace page and look at his pics http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fusea...endID=105813923 Think he has a motivation for money? Again, countless of innocent victims associate with people who they don't expect to kill them. Based on your premise you'd blame Laci Peterson for her own murder. I'm really done with you because you're awful responses are not deserving of a response. I used to respect your posts man.

I'm saying that his relationships with these people go far deeper than them mowing his lawn, or one of them at his sister's birthday party. It all goes to who you let into your life. If you let these types of people into your life, then bad things can happen. My guess is that he knew exactly what kind of people he let into his life. I'm done with this subject. I apologize to everyone I offended, but I believe what I believe. Again, RIP Sean, and I'm sorry this happened to him.
You sound anything but sorry. Your posts demonstrate a position that he deserved everything he got. Like I said, this is all really poor ### form on your part.
I thought I had posted my last thought on this, but I must defend the fact that I never wanted to insinuate that he deserved what he got. I'm very very sorry this happend to him and his family. I just tried to instill the fact that you are who you associate with, and it is my guess is that his death was caused by his associations, whether directly or indirectly. Again, I apologize to everyone I offended by my posts on this subject, and this is my final post on it.
Ok. So everyone be sure to hire detectives to watch everyone who went to your sister's birthday party in case they come after you. Johnny, make sure you frisk your landscaper before he comes near your house and report him to the police to let him know he mowed your lawn . In the mean time, shoot an email to laci peterson's mom and tell her that she should have done a better job of associating with her husband who would eventually kill her.
I say hire a lawn service and not someone from the hood.
:D

Yeah cause everyone knows that gang bangers are out there looking for part time jobs like delivering newspapers and mowing lawns.

Has it ever been more obvious that someone switched mid-stream to an alias to avoid his main getting banned than JohnnyU switching to mantle's liver?
:eek:

They can IP check, I say IP check and if it's true give him an extended time-out. Trashing dead people isn't exactly a sign of high character. :rolleyes:

MIAMI (AP) -- The alleged shooter in the murder of Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor told police he and the other suspects burned their clothes in an attempt to cover up the crime.

The statement by 17-year-old Eric Rivera Jr. and those by two other suspects were released Wednesday by state prosecutors at the request of The Associated Press and other news outlets. All three statements are heavily redacted on a judge's orders, and do not contain outright confessions to the crime.

But there are hints throughout of what happened and what led up to the Nov. 26 shooting, which authorities say took place in a botched robbery attempt at Taylor's Miami home. Taylor, an All-Pro safety for the Redskins, died the next day from heavy blood loss.

Rivera, like the other suspects from the Fort Myers area, told detectives there were five people on the trip that night, although only four are charged. All five burned their shirts, gloves and other clothes after returning home following Taylor's shooting, he said.

"And why did you guys do this?" asked Miami-Dade police Det. Juan Segovia.

"Nobody can find out who did it," Rivera replied.

Another suspect, 20-year-old Jason Scott Mitchell, said he thought about coming forward when he found out it was Taylor who had been shot. Mitchell said he was told the day after the shooting by another suspect, Charles Wardlow.

"It's like when I found out who it was, it's like, I mean, I just felt like turning myself in," Mitchell told police. But he did not, and added he wasn't sure why.

Mitchell's statement also provides new details on a birthday party he attended in September at Taylor's home. Mitchell said he stayed at the house for several days, helping Taylor cut the grass and make other preparations for the party -- tasks for which he was paid $300 in $50 bills by Taylor.

The party was for Sasha Johnson, who was Taylor's sister and who was dating suspect Wardlow's nephew Christopher, Mitchell said. He said Taylor gave Johnson $10,000 in a paper bag as a birthday present, and that he saw other large sums of money in the house.

Mitchell also said he thought Taylor would be with the Redskins, who played a game that weekend in Tampa, even though he was out with a knee injury. And, he said, the group almost ran out of gas on the way back to Fort Myers but managed to scrape together $2 in change to make it home.

The third statement released Wednesday was from Venjah Hunte, 20, but it provided almost no new details. Hunte's attorney has said his client never went inside Taylor's house and did not take part in the crime.

No statement was released from Charles Wardlow, the fourth suspect.

Defense attorneys and prosecutors are barred from discussing the case with news media under a gag order issued by Miami-Dade County Circuit Judge Dennis Murphy. All four defendants have pleaded not guilty.

It was especially funny when Johnny U got a 2 day ban, so Green Apple Splatter comes in and creates a new thread asking why Johnny U was banned and the mod replies, Johnny U AND Green Apple Splatter now get a 2 week ban. Classic!

I heard from a friend who works at a Miami hospital that Sean Taylor was shot last night during an attempted home invasion. Apparently, he was shot in the groin and it is serious.

One year ago today. :useless:

For some reason it seems longer than that. That all seems several worlds ago.

The shock over his death.

The Buffalo game, a tough loss, playing with 10 men on defense, Gibbs calling 2 timeouts.

The winning streak.

The abrupt end in the playoffs.

Gibbs quitting in the offseason.

The clown show that called itself a coaching search.

The draft.

Getting beat down by the Giants in game 1.

The wins over Philly and Dallas.

The tough losses.

Seems like a long time ago. I miss seeing the guy play. I wish he was around for his kid.

Oh wow. Seems longer ago. Many lambasted him as a punk, but he was young and seemed to be turning his life around.

Was reading his Wikipedia entry (not sure how up to date it is) but apparently the shooter is finally due to go to trial April 5th.

Crazy that it's taken this long.

Seeing him on the defensive side of the ball and RG3 on the offensive side would have made this Skins fan happy. What a talent he was, and how much he is missed.....

MIAMI — A new August trial date has been set in Miami for the alleged shooter in the 2007 slaying of former Washington Redskins star safety Sean Taylor.

Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Dennis Murphy said Tuesday that 22-year-old Eric Rivera Jr. will stand trial Aug. 12. The case has been delayed numerous times since Taylor was killed during what prosecutors say was a botched robbery at his Miami-area home.

Rivera and three others, all from the Fort Myers area, have pleaded not guilty and are being tried separately. Each faces a possible life sentence if convicted.

A fifth man previously pleaded guilty to murder and burglary charges and is likely to testify against the others.

Taylor starred in college at the University of Miami.

Nice sentiment, but the Skins probably wouldn't have been in position to draft RG3 if they'd had Taylor back there for the past however many seasons.

Excerpt from the Greg A. Bedard MMQB Column today:

Sean Taylor, the late Washington safety who was murdered in 2007, would have turned just 31 on April 1. It’s amazing to think that he’d still be in his prime. With free safeties in such great demand now thanks to the rise in spread offenses, it sort of boggles the mind to think of what Taylor would be worth on the open market now. Some might not remember, but Taylor, at 6-2 and 212 pounds with speed and instincts, was ascending to be the equal of Ed Reed, Taylor’s predecessor at the University of Miami.

“Sean Taylor was THE greatest player I ever personally scouted, watched grow up within an organization, and became good friends with,” tweeted former NFL scout and player Louis Riddick, now an ESPN analyst. “Happy birthday Sean.”

Jury convicts man in Sean Taylor trial

MIAMI -- A Florida jury has convicted a man prosecutors called the ringleader of a botched 2007 Miami-area burglary that ended with the fatal shooting of Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor.

The 12-person jury deliberated nearly four hours Tuesday before finding 25-year-old Jason Mitchell guilty of first-degree felony murder and armed burglary. Trial testimony indicated that Mitchell hatched the plot for five Fort Myers-area men to burglarize Taylor's home near Miami after previously seeing large amounts of cash there.

The man who authorities say fired the fatal shot, Eric Rivera Jr., was convicted last fall of second-degree murder and sentenced to 57 years behind bars.

Two other men await trial. A third has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and burglary.

Taylor was Pro Bowl safety who also starred at the University of Miami.

Such a terrible shame. Sadly I remember it like it was yesterday since he died on my birthday ironically. I still do a lot of "what ifs?" about #21 and Len Bias.

That young man was destined for greatness and the HOF.

R.I.P Sean.  

Passed away on my birthday. 

Will always remember where I was when Sean Taylor and Len Bias died.   Still stunned by both tragic endings to two young men.
