In 2007, I, as a police officer, entered arrests into the computer of arrests dating back to the 1930s. What I found was that arrests before 1970 were done almost entirely by white people and were generally non-violent, walking while intoxicated being the most prevalent.
After 1970, after Civil Rights, the crime changed to crimes being done by black people and became violent. With that fact in mind (and you can obtain these records from the Columbus Police Department Public Records), I wondered how the NFL was going to 'solve' their problem with players committing crimes. So I researched who these crime-committing players are.
Only considering the NFL and not any other sports organization, I found a list at: http://www.utsandiego.com/nfl/arrests-database/, entitled, 'San Diego, NFL arrests data base,' which lists tons of these offending players. I used all of 2014 and a couple at the end of 2013. I also went back to the NFL in 1960 and only found one player, Jim Brown, who was convicted of misdemeanor vandalism in 1999 for damaging the automobile of his wife, Monique. Rather than participate in domestic violence counseling, community service, and probation, Brown chose instead to serve several months in jail, because, he said, "The conditions of my sentence were ridiculous." Mr. Brown is black.
Of the 42 NFL players from 2014 and a few from 2013 listed on this site, only two were white: Keiser, for a bar fight and Kilgore for public intoxication. It is obvious from my investigation that the criminal problem in the NFL is black players. How are they going to solve this? I don't believe they can because this proof is 'racist.'
When a guy named Brown was shot by an officer in Ferguson, MO, who was white, blacks rioted, looted and violently protested for a person they did not know. They only knew he was black. Obama said the solution is to 'give police officers more training.' He did not address the behavior of Brown or the other blacks. This would have been the right time, as a black president, to address the incorrect reaction to a crime. I don't think the NFL can do it either.
New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner was banned for racial comments; Marge Schott of the Cincinnati Reds said “nigger” and “dirty Jews.” In 2003, Ohio State running back, Maurice Edward Clarett was imprisoned for robbery. Even with that, I heard people say, 'Ohio State can't win without him.' I replied, 'I suppose there are a lot of guys in prison that can play football. You want to let them out too?'
There could be a couple more offending NFL white players, but I couldn't find them and in proportion, they don't count anyway. So, YOU decide what the problem is in the NFL and how they are going to solve it.
