    The casual, everyday use of the word, "involved," vs. a legal definition of how a person may be "involved" as either a perpetrator, a principal, a victim, or as a witness, is often discussed with the venire in my jury selections.

    That is because the State will often attempt to make the usages equivocal . . . when they are not.

    For instance, one can merely be present at an event wherein a crime is committed by others, and even know that it is going to be committed, and without more, that person is not guilty of anything.

    Luckily journalistic style is not dictated by legal definitions.

    It's the off season. It's either stupid journalists or indoor practice facility. Your choice. ;)

    From the ESPN update:

    Initially, the GPD reported that Debose had thrown another person through a window, but police spokesman Ben Tobias posted a correction and an apology to Debose via social media, saying Debose tried multiple times to break up a fight.

    I think the writer of that piece missed out on an opportunity to use a really cool albeit little-known word. The headline should have read, "Debose Absolved of Defenestration Accusation."

    :D

    On a positive note, it was nice to hear that Debose was doing walk-throughs at yesterday's practice. I'm thinking he, like most fans are really anticipating fall. I pray he has a healthy 6th year to show Gator fans and opponents his athleticism.

    If nothing else, the guy can flat out return kicks as good (perhaps better) than anyone we've ever had in that role. Alone, that would be a huge contribution for the 2014 version of the Gators.

    For sure. I really hope we can get him the ball in space on offense though.
