      LAPD: DeSean Jackson not involved in gang-related killingsBy John Breech | CBSSports.comMarch 29, 2014 1:42 pm ETDeSean-Jackson-LAPD_final_zpsc8795506.jpgThe LAPD says DeSean Jackson has not been involved in any gang-related homicides. (USATSI) The Philadelphia Eagles still haven't specified why exactly the team cut wide receiver DeSean Jackson on Friday. According to a report on NJ.com, the Eagles were concerned with "Jackson's continued association with reputed Los Angeles street gang members who have been connected to two homicides since 2010."In a statement released on Friday, Jackson denied having any gang-ties. The Los Angeles Police Department backed up Jackson's statement by saying they don't necessarily think Jackson has any ties to gangs and they definitely don't think he's been involved in any gang-related killings. "It's kind of like 'Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.' When people grow up in neighborhoods where you have gang involvement, you don't have to look too far before you find a connection to a connection," LAPD Homicide Det. Chris Barling told the Philadelphia Daily News. "Now, how sinister that connection is, our position is that's for others to judge."The NJ.com report noted that Jackson is close to Theron Shakir. Shakir, reportedly a member of the Crips, was charged with murdering 14-year-old Taburi Watson in 2010 after Watson flashed a rival gang sign at Shakir and co-defendant Marques Binns. During that investigation, the LAPD reached out to the Eagles, who didn't respond. However, Jackson did respond when authorities reached out to him, "[The Eagles] didn't return the call, but we came across a number for him and had a conversation," Barling said. "It was nothing confrontational; he answered our questions."In 2012, a gang-related killing took place in front of a property being rented by Jackson's sister. Detective Eric Crosson told NJ.com that 'investigators found several documents belonging to Jackson, including a car title, a gun permit issued in New Jersey and credit-card receipts.'However, Barling noted that Jackson is not being looked at in relation to that homicide or any others, "There's no other investigation that I'm aware of where Mr. Jackson's name has come up," he said. "It's clear he was not involved in the homicides."Jackson was the victim of a crime in January though when his home was burglarized. In that case, authorities believed that the perpetrators made off with $250,000 in cash. However, a Philadelphia police spokesman told the Philadelphia Inquirer that only $20,000 was stolen from Jackson's place. "This was a genuine mistake on our part," the spokesman said. "His mother was giving police what she thought was in the home. Once, they interviewed Jackson, he knows what's in his house, and he said, 'No, that's wrong.' He told them what was missing."That case is still open. Richard Sherman stands behind former Little League teammate DeSean Jackson By Nick Schwartz    USA Today Sports    7 hours agosherm_zps4c61cb29.jpgsherm_zps390507c0.gifThe Philadelphia Eagles strange, sudden release of DeSean Jackson has quickly become one of the biggest stories of the offseason, and Jackson’s friends and colleagues are lining up to offer their support. Long before his release, the Eagles were shopping Jackson on the trade market. According to reports by NJ.com, there were behind-the-scenes issues, and the Eagles were concerned about Jackson’s relationships with gang members. Shortly after those reports were published Friday, the Eagles cut ties with the Pro Bowl wide receiver. Jackson released a statement afterward denying any involvement in gang activity, and the LAPD confirmed that he was not a target in any investigations. A number of fans and fellow players have come to Jackson’s defense following his release. Former Giants running back Derrick Ward wrote a passionate series of tweets ripping the Eagles and ESPN for the way they handled the situation. Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, who also grew up in Los Angeles, shared an old photo of his little league team, which featured two future NFL stars. Sherman’s message: “No one should be judged by the actions of others.”

      That's good advice if you care what idiots think. If you're really going to judge me based on what my friends are wearing then I don't think I could count on you to take my fast food order correctly.

      This is BS.  I don't know and care about 99% of the peoples "character" I see every day, so I judge them with my senses.  Humans are wired to judge based on our understanding of our environment and you have not evolved.

      That's what grade school idiots do. Assuming things without finding out the truth. When you want to join the rest of us in adulthood, I'll be glad to give you your man card.

      Always a good idea to walk down the street and refuse to make any assumptions about the lethality of the MF coming at you.  Don't judge him by that hand hidden behind his leg or in his pocket, the fact that he is looking past you or may be blocking your path.  Stop a while, have a chat, talk to him to see what he really intends with that knife - maybe he is just a butcher on his way home from work or seliing ginsu knives.Good strategy.  You go with your sophisticated, educated high school kumbaya - this PhD will go with an analysis of behavior every time.There are times to test assumptions and there are times to trust a rapid impression - sterotypes do not come from nowhere.

      Why throw a crip sign at a player during a game?Absolutely stay away from this idiot. He is another dummy. Thought he was a good dude. Watched the show about him and his father. Saw the article about him doing seminars at his old school about the stupidity of bullying. Diva who throws gang signs but says he isn't a gang member. Welp...he's fake as hell if nothin else. Throwing crip signs all over the place and saying I'm not a gangster? Get outta here you punk ass.

      The Eagles cut him because he is an azz (bad in locker, all about money, inconsistent effort, clashes with Kelly) making $10 million and Kelly is a system coach. The team floated the record label/gang stuff to give the team and Kelly cover

      My thoughts are "let's find out more". You know what happens when we assume, right?

      Stereotypes? Oh jeez. A guy with a "PhD" believes Jews are greedy and Germans are angry. It would also be convincing if you could actually spell the word. The only PhD you have is the one that you printed out from the internet.
