Jordan Love and the UGA cops: What the what?

This Jordan Love arrest is just chock full of unnecessary stupid.

The report says Love couldn't or wouldn't spell his middle name. And yet, there it is, on the same report (download from The Red & Black). It's Lawrence. Yet the chief of police acts like it's some family secret.

The report says Love wouldn't give his date of birth, and it's not on the report at all. Does this young man not have a drivers license? At some point in the training process for UGA cops, do they not say "Ask people for their drivers licenses?"

Officer Kevin Thompson confiscated a lighter and at least one firework from Love and took them into evidence, but Love wasn't charged with shooting fireworks, just this obstruction thing. Now Love's family has hired not just one, but two attorneys (8th paragraph)?

And who the hell calls the cops because someone's lighting off fireworks at 9:40 p.m. on July 5?

Apparently, a guy named Stephen C. Rogers who, interestingly, spells his middle name "Christophe."

Update: The AJC reports that this case is moving forward. If I'm Love's attorneys I think exhibit A for me is one of the numerous newspaper articles where the chief of police basically said there was no case.

Good time to sue for false arrest. Last time I checked, Athens was still in the United States of America.... Some cops shouldn't be cops!

UGA cops have always had a chip on their shoulder. I graduated in 1985 and had a run-in with them a time or two (and not because I was a firecracker 'splodin' rabble rouser). Campus police take everything to the Nth degree because of some strange inferiority complex. I think they view themselves as pseudo-cops and try to over compensate. Some things never change.

Federal agents.
State Police.
County Police
City Police.
Rental Cops.
Stadium Security.
UGA Clown Circus Cops.

In the pecking order the UGA cops are as low as you go. They have been this way for years, yet nobody gets fired. The Chief is a moron and apparently gets retained through some Americans with Disabilities Act provision. This department's training videos are reruns of the Andy Griffith Show with the role model being Barney.

There is not a case on Jordan Love.

This, however, is ALL we read.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg County School System has ruled that Christian LeMay cannot attend any Summer Workouts with his team. He also must miss 8 regular season games through Mid-October, more than half the season, Suspended. Any appeal cannot be heard until late August, and he has no hope of his suspension being removed. No, preacher, he didn’t beat anyone up, nor have a weapon or drugs – he had sex on school grounds in front of the Principal of said school, Butler. As for how you determine that does not affect his commitment to UGA, there are 2 fronts, 1st and foremost, Christian said if nothing changes – which is not a commitment and 2nd his offense is exactly the same as Michael Grant’s offense, and UGA Admissions wouldn’t allow Michael Grant in. How can they now allow Christian LeMay in ? Because he is the # 1 QB in the nation according to Sporting News ? Michael Grant, was and is a very good football player, too.

We also learned over night that besides our Athletics Director being run out of town on a rail for disgracing The University of Georgia, the Athletics Department, his entire family, but not the football recruits - that the Magistrate Judge has moved forward with the charges against Jordan Lawrence Love, DOB 12/31/1990, whom the Judge said yesterday would not provide his full name, nor his Date of Birth. This is not a Police State, but those are the 2 items everyone MUST provide. His sister and mom can say all they want, he was obstructing the officer in his performance of his duties. Let’s also be very clear about this, it was the day AFTER the 4th of July, he did have fireworks on his person, he did have a lighter on his person, and he was the 1 shooting off the fireworks. But, he is either too stupid to know his own damn birthday and middle name, or taught by his mom to ignore his middle name because it is in fact his father’s name and she does not want to associate with the child’s father, and taught to be uncooperative in an investigation which would have been dropped onsite by providing his middle name you and I both know he knows and his birthday, you and I both know he knows.
