Default Sean Taylor dies after being shot in Leg at Miami Home

Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor was shot at his Florida home Monday morning, sources tell WSVN-TV in Miami.

The Redskins free safety was in surgery at Jackson Memorial Hospital where he is listed in extremely critical condition.

Taylor, who had on the Redskins' injured list for the second straight week due to a right knee sprain, was shot in the leg and the bullet reportedly struck the femoral artery. The incident occurred at his home in the Palmetto Bay section of Miami.

i wonder if he slept with someone's wife/gfriend and the dude shot him in the groin as revenge. oh man, that would be horrific.

he is a thugster though, so not that surprised. maybe one day this whole hip-hop gangsta thug BS will die and go the way of the dinosaur.

never said he deserves it. If you sleep with dogs you are just going to get fleas. If you plant corn don't expect to harvest asparagus.

Who said he deserved it? I said it was sad and it is a horrible event. But if you surround yourself with those who carry guns... then excuses can't really be made. Stop stirring.

Quoted from the Fox article link posted above...
Quote:
In 2005, Taylor was accused of brandishing a gun at a man and repeatedly hitting him during a fight that broke out after Taylor and some friends went looking for the people who had allegedly stolen his all-terrain vehicles.
"brandishing a weapon and repeatedly hitting him" sounds pretty thug(ish) to me... But I guess its all in individual's definitions?!?

Is it known that he hangs out with thugs and has weapons? I have never heard anything about Taylor that would indicate that. But I could have missed it. Either way, he was a victim of a home invasion which was similar to what happened to Dunta. He just wasn't shot.

My apologies for not being current on the history of Sean Taylor, but is that really necessary? That is why I mentioned that I could have missed it. I know Taylor is from the "U" and was labeled as a "troubled player" coming out of the draft, but I really haven't paid too much attention to what he has been up to other than on the playing field. Geez, give me a break man.

Yes, I did. I guess our definitions are different so once again, my apologies. Like I said, I didn't know too much about his past other than what I heard about him coming out of the 2004 Draft, but just because he f'd up one time doesn't make him a thug, JMO.

its been more than one thing, also FWIW - the dude got himself ejected out of a playoff game for his thuggish behavior (spitting). that seems pretty relavent.

i hope he survives and is able to rehab but i really do hope he learns a lesson that highsigning at clubs and wearing lots of diamonds and jewelry doesnt make you cool...it only makes you a target. Wearing $100,000+ of jewelry in a public club isn't fresh, its straight up ign'ant and just asking to be robbed. Does he deserve it? Not really, but you really would have hoped he would learn his lesson and do more to stay out of drama. We'll just have to wait till the story comes out about what really happened last night. It's just hard to give him the benefit of the doubt, I guess.

I wasn't flaming you or anything. It's just that a "thug" to me is someone that doesn't want to play by the rules of society. Going around brandishing a weapon and beating the snot out of someone with said weapon constitutes being a thug in my eyes. The definition of 'thug' goes way back before Tupac.
