Body camera video obtained by WBIR shows the arrest. Banks was cooperative for the majority of the video -- which included a phone call to Pruitt. Toward the end of the video, Banks appears to threaten a woman who was riding along with the police officers. Y'all would've never caught me," Banks said while sitting in the car. Pruitt can be heard on the phone during the arrest video speaking with Banks and the responding police officer.
Pruitt, who sounds very weary in the audio, seems to suggest that police in Knoxville treat players a little bit differently than other places that he has worked. And that's something that we have to do a better job, to focus on our players so you don't have a speeding ticket or anything that turns into something like this. So we have to do a better job as a staff to know what's going on and that's something we have to have a relationship to get it figured out. Banks' dismissal will have a major impact on the depth at linebacker for Pruitt's Vols.
He only has seven tackles on the season but was being counted on as the primary backup behind middle linebacker senior Daniel Bituli. Tennessee will take on No. Barrett Sallee has been a member of the sports media in various aspects since Full Bio. Up next:. Tennessee dismisses LB Jeremy Banks after troubling footage of arrest surfaces. If they accept payment, the NCAA might impose restrictions on post-season play. A number of years ago Sports Illustrated had pictures from around the preseason college football landscape.
One picture showed a black tight end from the University of Alabama and dozens of starry eyed white people surrounding him to get his autograph. I thought that strange and disheartening since Southerners always claim to be the most racially conscious white people in America.
Sets a bad example for this young man by giving the police a bunch of crap. Both of them should be given the door. No wonder the young man gave the Police a bad time. Very poor example and PR for the University from both of them. Exact same thing here. Matter of fact I comment a LOT less because of the comments sitting in limbo never to come out.
Negro basketball worship by whites is even more repulsive at northern schools because of the larger student following during winter. He is Considered an adult by law. So why did the officer call the coach.
More coddling of a football player. I f-ing hate cops. We shoot cops. That is all. Written by the same person s who do his homework.
Even the white players can be assholes who think that they are entitled. Scholastic football is a training ground to get people to be loyal to their team, no matter what. It says something to the effect of in the future we will all wear orange. It sums up the SEC Football culture quite well.
Football first, academics third. None of the schools are actually bad, but sports is such a huge revenue stream that it casts a shadow over the institution itself. So first this gentleman demands they call his adult chaperone coach , then he starts being threatening, then he starts singing and giving compliments, and finally he presents a note written by an adult chaperone.
A number of years ago I worked as a tutor in the athletic department in the UT system. They could not read, some of them at all, and this included some of the white boys, which I discovered when I had the very bad idea of making them read the text out loud. I felt bad for them all, but like I said, I was still a liberal then. They had never heard of Anything. Not the Protestant Reformation.
Not the Renaissance. The world they lived in was like a continual dawning day with no past and no future. I never said it was but am shocked that negro footballer worship is as bad if not a little worse South of the Mason Dixon line than it is anywhere else. Well yes. The article makes it fairly clear that this is an adult nikker.
A white mental age of 12 would be about normal for an adult nikker. He is operating at full throttle.

If your supposedly homeless brother needs help, selling drugs is, of course, your only option. One night when I was over at her apartment, she was showing me some of the quizzes in her Poli-Sci class. Any attempts at an answer literally made no sense…as if they were just throwing up a word salad of things they heard while sitting in class.
It was beyond embarrassing.
I could easily have aced this quiz when I was in Middle School. As could most whites I knew at the time. KenH———The major problem,as i see it,is that the stadiums are located at the colleges. Give the sponsoring university a big sign and merchandizing rights. Everybody wins.
The sad thing is that I remember learning all this stuff in school. With all the talk of explorers, sailors, adventurers of history I want to ask a simple question. If sub-Saharan Africa was first discovered by Arab slavers, then onto the Portugese and the others who entered uncharted territory and explored it, who the hell are the Africans who sailed the oceans, trekked across continents, mountain ranges, forded rivers… to discover something other than Africa? Who are these great explorers? I do several crossword puzzles a day.
Only 4 of the top 25 are SEC schools in the Afro jumpball pre-season poll. Yes but he is probably about six foot and weighs about lbs.
There are no 12 year olds THAT big. Grown adults with child minds walking the streets among us. I have never seen a White 12 year old act this way. If I was drunk enough I can imagine myself saying some pretty stupid stuff and greatly regretting it the next day.
