Did he make the comment before his arrest or did his friend?
I have not gotten a clear answer and neither have the Heisman voters.
Someone he was with made racial slurs to another guy then the altercation happened. That's all I know.
You realize the voters have alreay voted don't you?
probably not, because you're clearly a dumbass
Exactly, Cam was crucified for his past. This kid got in jail too and no one says a damn word.
System QB's and all.
From what Ive read a friend of his was using racial slurs and JF was just trying to break it up, nobody said JF himself did or said anything racist.
He can't ask a question?
All your fvck buddies start threads all the time. Wish you said the same chit in those threads

Johnny was dropping N bombs all day
I would ask in what context but it would just start a lot of trolling.
Cam stole someone's laptop and chunked it out a window.... Manziel got in a fight. I think Cam's offense was a little more serious and that's why you hear about it a little more.
and? last time i checked stealing a laptop is a crime, but using slurs is not.

Wrong. Damage to the person is and has always been a more serious criminal offense than damage to property. Always. Without exception. But continue to think that way. For example, if someone steals your property, you cannot kill them to get it back. Conversely, if someone points a gun at you and you reasonably believe your life is in danger, you can kill that person in self-defense.
If you can somehow fill me in on your logic of how receipt of stolen property and tampering with said property evidence is more egregious than physically assaulting someone preceded by the use of racially charged language to incite the aforementioned physical assault, I would love to hear it.
F-ing tBB armchair attorneys....

Started at the bottom, now we here.....better get used to it.
People get in fights all the time, it just so happens in this case he was arrested. People don't steal laptops and throw them out windows very often, which IMO is why it was a bigger deal.
A players character has nothing to do with winning the heisman. If it did Scam Newton wouldn't have been invited to New York. It should annually go to the most outstanding player in the SEC anyway. In the SEC #5 for Notre Dame would be just another face in the crowd among a lot of great defensive players. Johnny Football should win the award hands down.
Not picking sides because I honestly couldn't care less, but on my way home from the bar tonight i'll probably walk past 4 fights and zero laptops being destroyed...take it for what you will.
You forgot Cammy's academic fraud.

Wrong. Check again. See Brandenburg v. Ohio, 395 U.S. 444 (1969).
I stole a snickers bar when I was 5. I am a thief period.
Did not read, but no one is going to jail for dropping a N bomb. But laptop thieves on the other hand..that was my point.
Cam Newton bought stolen property, tard. He didn't steal the laptop himself. He bought it from the guy who actually stole it. I know that is really legally nuanced for you, but try to keep up. Once the cops busted the seller of said laptop, the tracked it to Cam. Cam panicked, tossed the laptop out the window of his dorm, which then added another charge.
Cam was charged with receipt of stolen property and tampering with evidence/hindering a police investigation. Cam was not charged with theft.
It literally cannot be spelled out for any of you more simply than this. If you, instead, continue to believe "Cam is a thief" after this explanation, then you simply cannot be helped. Believe whatever it is you believe and be lumped in with rest of the ignorant mob.
Which one would you be more ashamed of yourself for: Getting in a fight, or stealing a laptop and throwing it out the window?
Probably wouldn't have helped anyway. First Amendment jurisprudence aside, you will believe whatever is convenient for your retarded world view on Cam Newton, Auburn, etc.
Continue to wallow in the ignorance of your own statements. Hope it works out for you.
