Jayson Williams

Okay okay so at first you're thinking..what the heck does he have to do with pets.... well I thought if you hadn't already heard about it, this is an interesting read.

Background, Jayson Williams former pro basketball player on trial for killing a chauffeur. (supposidly accidentally while playin around with a gun)

Read this:

Before the trial began, Judge Edward Coleman ruled that prosecutors could not tell the jury about two previous shooting incidents allegedly involving Williams.

In 1994, a handgun Williams was holding in the parking lot of the Meadowlands arena went off, striking the hubcap of a vehicle. Williams completed a diversionary program of community service and charges were not pursued.

Prosecutors say the second incident occurred at Williams' mansion just six months before Christofi's shooting. Williams allegedly bet houseguest and former pro basketball player Dwayne Schintzius $100 that he could not drag Williams' Rottweiler guard dog from the house. Schintzius pulled the dog outdoors, but instead of paying up, prosecutors claim, Williams shot the dog twice, killing and "almost decapitating" it, and then pointed the gun at his friend, telling him "get this f---ing dog off my porch or you're next."



Another article indicates that a friend buried the poor dog Zeus in the yard behind the home.

Since he denies it, I'm wondering with this testimony why someone hasn't decided to get a warrant to dig up the yard to look for the remains.

Ahhh but then again... a dogs life isn't important right!

Yes Luba,I read about that and was horrified,but they are not making a big deal out of it,it's only a dog
The man is a monster and I am hoping he'll rot in you know where
He probably will,since it is in the US,but then again,there is O.J Simpson......

He certainly has some stability issues doesn't he Anita.

I can't believe how this trial is going, I've been watching some of it on Satellite and its' not as bad as the OJ trial but there are some 'Hollwood' drama's goin on.

Can you believe a cop on scene took a roll of film from a throw away camera that the victim supposidly had used, and the cop had it developed at a 'quicky' one hour photo lab. This, instead of having it done at the forensic ident unit DUH!

LMAAAAAOooo

I wonder why this issue with him killing the dog wasn't investigated in more detail?

"Just a dog"

The dog being killed and not made much of will lead to a person being killed!

I wonder when people will say "Oh, it was just a person. Make nothing of it."
