Texas LB Malik Jefferson Mocks Situation Regarding Alabama’s Players Not Being Prosecuted

It is pretty clear that those from around the college football world are not very amused by Ouachita Parish (La.) district attorney Jerry Jones' decision to drop charges against two Alabama football players earlier this week. Cam Robinson, a star left tackle for the Crimson Tide, and reserve safety Laurence "Hootie" Jones were arrested last month on charges of possession of a stolen handgun and marijuana, but had the charges dropped by Jones, who said he didn't want to ruin the players' lives.

The story has raised the question of whether the players received preferential treatment because of their status with the Crimson Tide. The players' lawyer argued that it is the exact opposite, but one angry LSU fan's letter to Jerry Jones began to go viral on Tuesday, and now Texas star linebacker Malik Jefferson has weighed in.

Would Texas players have received the same treatment? It isn't quite clear how Jefferson feels here, but it doesn't seem like he thinks the same would happen for two of his teammates.
