First, Anthony Brown at Hog Heaven is in front of me on the Sean Taylor murder case update. He says maybe Michael Wilbon was right:
Florida authorities released statements by the suspects in the case that seem to confirm Wilbon's original point about the risks of trying to change your life when others around you "might not embrace such a change." You could say that Taylor died as a result of his generosity, rather than of any bad relationships.
Prosecuting attorneys released "confessions" by some of the suspects yesterday. I say "confessions" because every source goes out of its way to point out that the statements aren't overt confessions, but that kind of distinction isn't likely to interest a jury. For example:
"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.
I understand the suspects thought Sean Taylor would be with the team. But if you enter a person's house, shoot the person in it, there's a better than not chance the person shot is the owner of said residence. Even if it weren't, the rest of us will hardly sympathize with you because of your bad luck that Sean Taylor -- as opposed to someone else he let sleep in his home, someone with an equal right not to get shot to death -- happened to be the victim.
