does anyone else find it stupid that our government focuses on the stars of sports teams, movie stars and so forth. but can not seem to focus on matters that really do harm to our country. tank johnsons house was raided and they found weapons that where not registered there. well they trashed his house destoryed his stuff and for what some weapons he was not useing. Why do they not go and get our drug suppliers and trash there house? they know who they are but yet do nothing. Why not go after gangsters on the street? once more they know who they are but dont do anything. it seems to me that they are now focusesing on things other then the real problem. can you all give me some insight on what you may think about this please. thanks a bunch

They had to have some reason to be concerned that he had illegally obtained weapons? How many were there? I didn't see the whole news report, just a blurb on the ticker at ESPN. He won't get in trouble until a key game next year though like that other Bears defender was during the Pats game. The NFL is good at that. As for the government chasing the little guy... If you can't find terrorists, you need to put something out there in the news so people know you are doing something. : )

Everyone loves gossip and to be in other peoples lives. People tend to forge tthat they are people just like us and mess up in the same manner. The only difference from them and most fo us is the money and fame.

I really think its a bunch of bs. They had surveillance on his house for OVER A MONTH. That to me is pointless. I would rather have those police officers or detectives whatever they were, patrolling the streets rather then to have them observing Johnsons every move. I still dont understand how the police knew he had weapons inside his house. When the police want to obtain warrants they must already know exactly what they are going to find in the place they are going to search. The Bears coach said that Johnson will not play in the next game against Tampa Bay. It sucks that theres a possibility that the league or the Bears organization might suspend him, especially with the playoffs around the corner.

Thank-you for bringing u this point. I totally agree it never seems like the police are in the right place. For in stance I live in a small village where people usually drive extremely slow through and there have been no accidents that I have heard about. For some reason the police think it's a great idea to have three to five police officers have a seat belt check early in the morning at least once a week in this small town. There is a large highway close to this village where about 2-5 accidents happen a day. Semi trucks jack knife while speeding and the majority of cars on this highway speed. People constantly get killed on this highway but where are the police that should be catching the speeders and neglectful drivers? In a small village because heaven forbid someone make a conscious decision, that will only harm themselves, to not wear their seat belt.

I only have my opinion. I don't know why they give a big deal to those in the spotlight. When there are better things that they can focus on. I think that ratings are a big part of what the media reports. You've got a lot of questions, some of them I've asked my self. We won't know unless it cam from a reliable source.
