First things first. Blame the punks.
Blame Eddie Williams, Tyler Hayes and Dennis Pettway, the three Alabama football players who’ve been charged with assaulting and/or robbing two of their fellow students.
Williams admitted to both assaults and robberies. Hayes admitted he participated in one assault and robbery and watched the other. Like Hayes, Pettway is charged with participating in one assault and robbery and watching the other.
According to police records, this is what the three players did to the first of the two victims: “Physically attacked him” by punching him in the head and kicking him in the back and ribs.
This wasn’t boys being boys or fellas blowing off steam. These were criminal acts of violence, and violent criminals have no place on a college campus, let alone a college football team.
