Having experienced a situation years ago where plain clothes policemen burst on a scene, the observer can identify with the situation in which Terrence Jennings and Jerry Smith recently found themselves.
You’re there having a good time on a football weekend. Maybe a couple of people are arguing, a little shoving is involved. But all a sudden, a bunch of burley brawny guys appear out of nowhere, shoving people around, pushing men and women against walls or down to the floor, treating friends like dirt.
Who cares what the words are on their shirts. That doesn’t make them special or cool. You’ve got an FBI hat and a Police shirt yourself. You either freeze or fight back.
Jennings fought back, and Smith came to his aid.
What’s with the plain clothes stuff, anyway? They look and act more like mobsters than police. Whatever happened to treating people like human beings?
There are two sides to every story, of course, and college kids will be college kids. The players aren’t necessarily angels either.
Jennings and Smith are scheduled to appear in a Jeffersonville Court on Monday to respond to charges of resisting arrest.
Oh, and you might want to have the party in Louisville next time.

Basketball practice begins in earnest for the men’s and women’s basketball teams on Friday. For some, it is an escape from a challenging football season. For others, it is a return to their first love. Sonja has a take on the Lady Cards here.

Anyone else share the opinion that the “Bag Krag” outbreak is the lowest form of redneck taste? You can want Steve Kragthorpe gone, but you don’t have to hide your face in a barf bag.
