And I thought the thug football players were just in the larger colleges and universities.

thug?? I really wouldnt call him a thug he is not one at all just got put in a bad situation
Tony Ballew September 16, 2011 at 10:04 PM
He wasn't "put" anywhere. He went voluntarily ...
Taja September 18, 2011 at 02:53 AM
He didnt "go" anywhere...the person came to his apartment shows how much you know.....so like i said he was PUT in a bad situation....he is not a bad person and he is far from a thug.
Tony Ballew September 18, 2011 at 03:13 AM
Hold on.someone came to his apartment and forced him to stab the victim?
Taja September 19, 2011 at 04:34 AM
the victim came to his apartment do you read the paper watch the news anything???? clearly not
Tony Ballew September 19, 2011 at 04:53 AM
Yes I do. Did the victim pull some sort of weapon..threaten him in any way?!!!
Tony Ballew September 19, 2011 at 04:55 AM
I take it you're a friend of the suspect? Significant other? Related? Were you a witness to the incident?
Taja September 22, 2011 at 07:08 PM
yup i sure am....and no i was not there... neither were you so you shouldnt be making judgments about someone when for one u dont even know him and for two you were not even there
Taja September 22, 2011 at 07:38 PM
clearly the victim threaten him if he started the fight....if the two didnt get along from the jump why would the so called "victim" even come on jamie's property??? the victim went over there to fight and jamie defended himself.
Tony Ballew September 22, 2011 at 10:38 PM
Taja...how do you know the victim "clearly" threatened the suspect and "went there to fight " if you weren't there?
Ashley September 23, 2011 at 06:37 PM
Why do he have to be a thug because he was in a fight that ending badly?
Tony Ballew September 24, 2011 at 05:38 AM
Unless you were there and saw it with your own eyes its all heresay.
Taja September 24, 2011 at 04:48 PM
so why are you making judgments??
MARK September 25, 2011 at 02:31 AM
After a long thought process, I came up with maybe a Theory of what happen. 1.Jamie gets cut from the Team 2. Team member brings his stuff from his locker to his Apartment. 3. Jamie gets mad and fight begins. 4. Jamie is losing fight and gets a knife. 5. Jamie stabs victim multi times out of anger. 6. Cops charge Jamie for att. murder. 7. Taja and girlfirend get pissed because MAYBE Mark finds out truth what happen? 8. Maybe Mark runs for Sheriff!!!!!
Taja September 26, 2011 at 03:26 PM
lol mark your funny.......MAYBE mark shouldnt be making comments and mark doesnt know what he's talking about. :)
Taja September 26, 2011 at 03:32 PM
????and maybe the teammate didnt bring anything to the apartment if they are saying Jamie ALLEGEDLY stole something from him rite???? maybe your just ignorant and making a joke out of a situation thats not funny at all
MARK September 26, 2011 at 05:19 PM
We shall see what really happens. Lets see if i'm Rite????Not funny at all, just the faxs, just the faxs Rite????
Tony Ballew September 26, 2011 at 05:29 PM
Rite Aid has faxes?

College of the Desert has a lot of English classes. Obviously more people need to consider signing up. I work with software engineers in China, India and the Ukraine and receive about 100 emails a day. I see more spelling and grammar errors on this Patch thread than I receive in a week of email from these guys. My worst co-worker is in a small town in Zambia; his punctuation is bad, but his spelling and grammar would put these people to shame. Or at least they should be ashamed.
MARK September 26, 2011 at 09:36 PM
That's funny Roland. You did have a humor side rite? Of course or should i hope you know that i'm only being a bone-head and messing with people. I'm fixing to git now to those COD classes. See yal! Okay Tony, I'll stop that southern bs

Taja and Ashley: Let me give you some unsolicited advice. Your initial reaction might be "he's just being racist". Frankly, I don't care what you think because I'm not. I hired, trained and mentored hundreds of young people in my broadcasting career. Among the things I taught them was how to get along in the real, adult world. Here's my advice to you both on how to get along in the real, adult world, a world you're going to have to make a living in. Learn how to write with proper spelling and proper grammar. "Why do he have to be..." is wrong. "Why does he have to be..." is correct. "wouldnt" and "didnt" are incorrect. They're called "contractions"...two words put together, "would" and "not" with an apostrophe (this: ') "Your" just ignorant is wrong. "Your" means it's yours, you own it. "You're" means "you are". This: "the victim came to his apartment do you read the paper watch the news anything???? " is called a run on sentence. You've combined two different thougths into one long sentence. Separate the thoughts with a period. If you weren't taught this in high school or college, I'm sorry. get your money back.
Taja September 27, 2011 at 07:38 PM
lol how do you go from calling someone a thug to trying to correct ppls spelling??? right...it has nothing to do wit it...i know grammar trust me....but who are you???? right so i really do not care what you think of me.....but im done wit all the commenting there's no point. You don't know me, i don't know you, and you don't kno jamie. You all are JUDGMENTAL and are getting off topic...:) have a great day.......Jamie your in my prays keep your head up and stay strong...Love you!!!!
Brooke Eldridge January 28, 2012 at 01:07 AM

MARK January 28, 2012 at 01:58 PM
Your kidding around rite! Come on Man!
Tony Ballew January 28, 2012 at 05:04 PM
One of the great things about our country is the legal system. As flawed as it is a judge and jury will hear all the evidence and decide.
Sharell November 15, 2012 at 04:31 PM
Free Jamie...miss u homie
Sharell November 15, 2012 at 04:32 PM
You're not a thug your an athlete whom was threatened & had to defend yourself....Wish you wouldnt have went so far around people who dont know you and who are jealous of your skills!
