Angry LSU Fan Pens Letter Scolding DA For Dropping Charges On Alabama Players

LSU fans letter scolding DA.


On Monday, Ouachita Parish (La.) district attorney Jerry Jones dropped charges against two Alabama football players—star tackle Cam Robinson and reserve safety Laurence "Hootie" Jones—after they were arrested for possession of a stolen handgun and a small amount of marijuana. In explaining his decision, Jones said that he didn't want to ruin the lives of "two young men who have spent their adolescence and teenage years, working and sweating, while we were all in the air conditioning." That didn't fly with many non-Alabama fans, as you would expect.

Melanie Wascomb, a Louisiana native and LSU fan, decided to write to Jones as a concerned citizen, and did not hold back in scolding him over the controversial decision.

Wascomb isn't alone in her opinion here, but her decision to frame the letter as an LSU fan probably doesn't buy her a lot of credibility as an unbiased party. Alabama blog Bama Hammer made the obvious photoshop adjustments to anything going viral in 2016.

We're sure this won't be the only person Jones will hear from in the aftermath of this decision.
