Josh Brent Manslaughter

How tragic. NFL linebacker Josh Brent was arrested on Dec. 8 on charges of intoxication manslaughter involving a car accident where a teammate died.

Josh Brent and a Dallas Cowboys team member of the practice squad, Jerry Brown, were allegedly involved in a car accident at 2:30AM where Jerry was killed.

Josh was speeding when his car “hit the outside curb” and flipped over, according to TMZ.

Josh was given a field sobriety test on the scene and failed. Jerry was unresponsive and declared dead at the hospital.

The report adds that Josh was booked on a second degree felony charge at 4:14 AM and is currently being held without bail.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones released a statement saying, “We are deeply saddened by the news of this accident and the passing of Jerry Brown. At this time, our hearts and prayers and deepest sympathies are with the members of Jerry’s family and all of those who knew him and loved him.”

This incident happens one week after Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend and himself.

Someone choosing to drive drunk (after already having a DUI charge and arrest in 2009) that kills a man, is a person being completely reckless and irresponsible. Someone choosing to get a gun and murder a woman while the family including their 3 month old child are present, then going and committing suicide in front of more innocent people (who will need therapy to cope with those events) is much more then being reckless and irresponsible. That is not the same crime. While in both situations innocent people lost their lives at the hand of another, The latter was a vicious, malicious, violent, pre-meditated MURDER. They can NOT be compared to one another. The NFL has a lot to change in their policies regarding DUI’s and suspensions and fines from games when players violate the policy. There also needs to be Policies regarding weapons in the NFL facilities. It is their right to have guns, but there can be rules to keep them out of the players facility. It was not the gun who chose to shoot that innocent 22 year old mother. The evil man who chose to murder her was.

I hope people don’t start comparing this to what happened to Jovan Belcher! There is nothing the same about this accident! Just a very bad decision!
