Former NBA'er Javaris Crittenton

Charged With MURDER

Former Washington Wizards player Javaris Crittenton -- the other guy in the Gilbert Arenas gun incident -- has been charged with murdering a 22-year-old woman.

Crittenton -- who has been bounced from the league -- is accused of shooting the mother of 3 on August 19 in Atlanta.  Investigators don't believe she was the intended target.  According to AJC.com, authorities believe Crittenton was gunning for someone who robbed him back in April.

The victim was shot in the hip and died in surgery.

You'll recall the famous incident in the Wizards locker room in 2009, when Arenas and Crirttenton pulled guns on each other.  Crittenton pled guilty to gun possession and was placed on 1 year's probation.

Crittenton is currently a fugitive and cops are looking for him.

This is what happens when you turn a blind eye to criminals. They re-offend.

This is the problem with people and guns. For some reason, they think they will only shoot and kill their intended targets. They do not think or care that an innocent person can be harmed or killed.

"is accused of shooting the mother of 3"

Why do they always do that?Has anyone else noticed that whenever a woman is the victim of a crime, they always have to mention that she's a mother and how many kids she has when it usually has nothing to do with what happened.

Does anyone know why?When a man is harmed or killed, they rarely put "father of 3".

im tired of reading about people who commit violent crimes or any other type of crime and then get paid millions, if the NBA NFL NHL MLB made a joint policy to not hire these criminal and instituted a no hiring policy on persons with any type of crime on persons, not speeding, but robbery, dui, dwi, assault, fraud etc id star*****ching but the entire deal is becoming a joke, watch criminals make millions is what they should be calling it the criminal sports league, im really getting tired of this but im sure you could tell!

"Crittenton is currently a fugitive and cops are looking for him."

That's what cops do for fugitives -- they look for them, so it should go without saying "...cops are looking for him".

Q    

Affirmative Action is alive and well in every business, organization and entity in this Country except professional sports. There is an abundance of Blacks who exhibit criminal tendencies, yet no one is shouting for more whites, hispanics or asians to have an equal chance at filling the rosters in a more balanced way as they do everywhere else. Pro Sports is the only place apparently where talent is truly hired. Unfortuantely in the NBA that "talent" brings too much of this nonsense with it. Shame on what David Stern created out of greed and power. Time for the Feds to step in and give equal opportunity to all Races in professional sports, regardless of their ability--just like they do in all federal and private employers.
