The report states:
Beyond the charges filed last week accusing Beasley of aiming a rifle at a couple and their teenage daughter in an SUV outside his house, where a large stash of marijuana and other guns were seized by police, the petition also says Beasley was caught on indoor video surveillance pointing a rifle “in the general direction” of his son in the garage that same day.
The child protection petition said police seized from the home a loaded semiautomatic shotgun on an office floor and “accessible to [the boy],” a handgun, a rifle, more than 1 ¾ pounds of marijuana, three notebooks suspected of being drug ledgers, nine dextroamphetamine pills and various firearms supplies.
I had not heard the part about the loaded gun on the floor or the three notebooks suspected of being drug ledgers.
I had read that there was a notebook on the table with "rules for smoking in the house".
If the stuff about drug ledgers is true, this is going to get a whole lot worse.
Drug dealers treated a lot harsher than drug users.
If this were any normal profession, the company would be exploring every avenue to manage him out the door.
From a pure basketball standpoint, it's not a bad contract and he's a valuable piece to the team.
Hopefully Rosas knows more than we do.
Because my worst case scenario for the signing was that Rosas was desperate to recoup some value from a sunk cost,
and that's a terrible way to make any decision.
The worrisome thing is that there are many other impressionable young dudes on the team.
The worst vice they should be worrying about as pro athletes is playing too much fortnite.
Also, hopefully child protective services getting involved will force him to get clean and clean up his personal life, because no kid should ever be put in that situation. We do live in a time where child protective services and the courts are overwhelmed, and kids often get sent right back to bad homes and people get off easy because of a lack of resources.
I had read earlier that they had really undercharged him compared to the charges available to them, and if the above is true that is most certainly the case.
