While the details are still unfolding on Javon Walker apparently getting robbed and having significant injuries in Vegas. I just wanted to chime in on the situation.
I think it is terrible that something like this happens in society, and it seems like we always want to blame the NFL player the victim of such crime.
It isn’t Walker’s fault this happened, but he didn’t use good judgement.
I remeber seeing an interview with Walker about how he had learned his lesson after Darrent Williams died in his arms. You would think the guy learned not to make himself a target for this type of crime. Anytime you go to a nightclub in Vegas an drop $15,000 you have to expect some low lifes to take notice. When your a high profile athlete, you have to take precautions like having body guards when you go to nightclubs or just not going at all. You also have to learn to lay low. The guy was on stage spraying Dom Perignon on the crowd. That is terribly stupid for the guy to do. What makes him think he should then be alone ANYWHERE after that.
Walker may have learned a lesson, he learned to ditch his entourage to avoid getting shot up in a car, but he didn’t learn that is wasn’t smart for him to drop $15,000 spraying the crowd with champaigne from the top of a stage with the club spotlight focused on you.
Hopefully Walker is okay, but it just goes to show you how stupid some of these athletes can be. I only pray that he is okay and he also has learned the whole lesson this time.
