    Yep but i will not throw stones. You often do not get a true story on these kids till they get on campus.

    Also, the kid might have been a model citizen and scholar-athlete if he had gone to a different school.

    Wasn't he the one whose dad and/or coaches were with Coach Williams when he got popped for DUI?

    Exactly the same way I feel. Just bc a kid gets caught up in a passionate spur of the moment type incident doesnt mean that it would have happened here.

    USC receiver Joseph Lewis was arrested Monday on suspicion of corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant. Lewis was arrested at 2 p.m. by the Los Angeles Police Southwest Division.

    Beating up your gf would qualify as a passionate spur of the moment incident that an 18 year old kid reacted to a situation poorly. Just because it happened once doesnt make the person a bad guy or given different circumstances may have never happened

    How do you know this is the only time he's done it? He learned the behavior somewhere. That's more than reacting poorly. Think of it as being your daughter.

    We don't know if this was a "once" or the continuation of a pattern.

    Regardless, the young man needs a message so loud and so clear that this crap stops once and for all. It will improve his life.
