Wednesday on the Dan Patrick show Marvin Lewis threw out a bit of a bombshell. He feels the Bengals are targets for the Cincy police.
"I think there's profiling, no question," he said. Lewis went on to say that a Bengals player had been pulled over for not activating his turn signal before making a right turn. If it was Chris Henry, I think we can rule out racial profiling.
Of course on Thursday, Lewis apologized to the Cincy police. But he's probably right.
The Bengals had nine players arrested, some multiple times, in a nine-month time period. Considering that there are 53 players on an NFL roster, that means 17% of the team was arrested in under a year. Imagine if 17% of your office was arrested in a year. The police would probably be waiting every day at the building's exits. Sure that's illegal, but it helps the cops reach their quotas a lot faster.
Truth be told, the Bengals should probably just hire some police to keep tabs on the players all the time. Otherwise, they may not have a roster for this next season.
