Danny Kanell Cites "SEC Justice" For Dropped Charges Against Alabama Football Players


Roll Tide, roll.

The controversial decision by the Monroe district attorney to drop the charges against Alabama football players Cam Robinson and Laurence Jones sent a shockwave through the sports world. The two players were taken in on charges of possession of a controlled dangerous substance, while Robinson had the added charge of illegal possession of a stolen firearm.

DA Jerry Jones said his decision was due to "insufficient evidence" and not wanting to ruin the players' lives.

"I want to emphasize once again that the main reason I'm doing this is that I refuse 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," Jones told KNOE-TV.

Former Florida State quarterback Danny Kanell claims the reasoning was basically due to "SEC justice."

Kanell may want to steer clear of Tuscaloosa for the foreseeable future.
