Here's a new side of the story about how Kirby and his staff has some sort of inappropriate relationship because we have Football staff who intercede when police are involved with our players.

Here an idea to what the author is trying to get at in the article:

Shame on the school from protecting players! I hate when universities protect their students! /s

    Who called the police chief? And what did he do?

    I don’t have AJC subscription

    I have zero problems with the article or reporting. None whatsoever.

    Newspapers report, not "ambulance chase". That's a totally different thing.

    Too much unknown to make a call one way or another. A few new facts that were interesting. Still tragic nonetheless.

    Everything they reported is factually correct. If you guys want to live in a place where those being reported on control the reporting maybe go live in Russia or North Korea.

    Pointing out that having someone from the University so chummy with local police is kind of the media's job. Because anyone reasonable can assume that does make for a conflict. Or at least the appearance of one.

    Thank God for the First Amendment huh?

    To not question the media is downright unAmerican.

    To question it blindly. Frankly because you have been told to. Is the most un American thing I can think of.

    It could have something to do with the Athens PD knowing that Gantt was employed by the football program when the crash happened. If I remember correctly, Gantt negotiated Jamie Hood's surrender when he killed the APD officer. Gantt was employed by the football program then as well.

    For those critical of the media doing its job. Please point out what they got wrong.

    Ill wait.
