Things to do Before Going to Campus Part II

Continuing from Anthony DiLoreto's arrest in the previous post. Photo from South Philly Review:

Marcus + Markieff MorrisI'd forgotten to post about incoming Kansas freshman Markieff Morris and his BB gun incident:

An incoming Kansas University basketball player is accused of shooting an Airsoft rifle BB gun out of his university dorm room, possibly hitting a woman in the courtyard below, the KU Public Safety office said.

Markieff Morris, 18, was issued a notice to appear in court after the incident, which the KU Public Safety office said occurred about 11:15 p.m. Saturday at Jayhawker Towers. According to a report from the KU Public Safety Office, Morris was suspected of using alcohol.

Kansas Coach Bill Self responded:

"We take this matter very seriously. Poor judgment was used by ever bringing an Airsoft gun, (one) that can be purchased at Wal-Mart, on campus that can shoot plastic BBs," he said.

"I would say concerning any alcoholic consumption, we do not condone that either. I am still gathering information to see if that actually occurred."

I understand that Kansas is boring, especially in comparison to Philadelphia, where he and his brother Marcus are from, but don't drink and shoot BBs. One or the other, and watch your aim, kid. This is the kind of dumb thing that college freshmen... okay, college kids... okay, lots of people accidentally do.

But when you're a high-profile athlete on a high-profile team, try not to beat the piss out of people, and try not to shoot BB guns. The urge overtakes all of us, I am sure.

Are these rifles popular? Not my area of expertise, here.
