Former saint office assuming former saints linebacker Scott Shanle for into the program and former teammate of Will Smith Scott when you heard this news. Sure it was it was one that bedrock you're so pretty good. No question devastating and it's still hard process and get it over eyes were on though. About 1230 it's not long after it happened now and and its police burst closed up Vilma. Even uttered those words and am. It was all that elegant contradiction that. It was indeed true could roll and hope that one bit. Well look thing never. Envision happening I mean things like the capital around the country and ultimately and you never clicked gonna happen. Or your former team mate has much ago met did you ever expect. Public that's what happened to and so it's been. Was was Will Smith a confrontational guy Scott. Now I mean it will look comp additional on. You know it will blow those guys you know opted. Will close where people who had the ability. To sit down with a copy. And Dunlap and powers which were deeper hours and gore appealed. And be one of and that if guys on the field liquor most aggressive guys on the field and he was a special person. I wouldn't call woke up that he wasn't gonna raise an issue if there was very should be raised. But you know it just like anything happened last night a small and burger turn into you know product yet arguing. It was late tonight. But who have potential to act like this happen over and over from the burner. It just it it raises issues with what we're a conference. And and humanity. Scott you lived in it's in New Orleans when you're playing here for the saint sin. Will only human you professed your love for outreach the city is. But at some point did you ever we ever concerned about than the some of the murders in some of the crime in this city when you're playing here. Oh there's no doubt about it. And I I know people who who live there on crow there and I don't want them feel like I'm taking a shot of the reasons one of them play in remote. I was concerned about are concerned about my kid growing up. In a place where. Look we live now Robert we lived away from the city but still my kids turned six and took me in the -- quote not being caught him in better. And I didn't want that for them and and I don't want people to take a shot at it but it would answer and I love my time there I love adapting to. That tradition and culture and you'll always be like home to me a bit. That was a major concern I had when I knew I was compliant problem. So yeah. The violence that happened there you know when we move you know their. The violence level like remove them what what's in New York intentional killings and she was just ago but. Felt like that got better over the years from post six as we live there. Com never has never gone there a point where it should be good. You know that she is. But the degree murders has too many simple act of violence that they don't need to have and so they answered question and don't concern me. Even with all over the country several other NFL cities I mean. The crime was that. Comparative to in the Saint Louis and Dallas coming at them except the Aston. And I know. But it all people that do it independent and I know crow there upright in the city and I April apparently anger out there. The just like in city if you go to the longer the count you're gonna play intro there's going to be people who bill frequently com. What people don't think clearly have gone bad things happen to me what it looked at doubt we live murderers sprawling area. Non violence cannot selectively greenery it is and that's what in the settling here and we live. He lit my lips blocks away from what will lived in my neighborhood Alley tenor. We will go up there because we have a kid at wide and one we wanted to say it was safe out there. I'll Alex. When my kids what that's like who are older and are able to drive there will be there for an. I don't want to be closed areas that being caught in trouble com. It and and you know I had no point oh were islander or more world of ore where we will bring it is apparently it was the greater equipment. Scott what kind of person was Will Smith in terms of I just gather from being in that locker room for media perspective that he was one of about three guys that. You know when he talked when he carried himself when he was in that locker room everybody was he just brought a different kind of edge to that locker. They're about the line. Will not lose our defense waiter and our team captain your career. Will that it's called demeanor to him. When he spoke everybody it was and what an acute rock rock guys when he spoke you nuke it from art and go out there wanting. That's separate well a lot of people will have the ability and here's a guy who grew up in New York. I agree right in new York and I'm a guy who grew small apartment progress. And we could sit and talk for hours we can talk politics we talk anything in the world will have that ability. To relate to everybody element what they're background was where they came from. And Arctic go to the planes that. People that don't know well the great. Achievement and it registered. There's so many other things that. Make this tragedy worse than that that is sort of. Scott Shanle former saints linebacker teammate of Will Smith. Former states that president shot and murdered last night in new worlds and Scott it had didn't ask that you like to add them for which room. Not I think a lot of control. Our panel to review the outpouring of support from around the capital community. Is is is great and in the fraternities. But they also lose. When pavlik as a result some support for saints fans. India. Prayers were obviously the most important political situations will like some pretty young kids on they'll be affected by the for the red lights that. You don't keep it will why is it your thought emperors and and try to get news that the cup the mixed emotions. Sadness anger. And though we wanted to review with what director alive and so we need people start thinking sensibly. And a stop. Stop random acts of violence and over. Scott thanks Manuel them. Thanks for Lee that's. Which got murdered last night after traffic accident road rage in the city new worlds final four to 60187. You feel right now text 8787. Robert real quickly. On line to your on to be at it robber. Yes I don't sort out what happened that terrible way to wake up what a great. Terrible loss. You know this tool that receive. Much has been at all and so everywhere in light Scott is that the start Mary which she spoke little boy. Well that we built which order are we played in a. It'll always in this case though last night he was on top ten companies up to this was a traffic accident. In this was money he get caught wrong neighborhood the wrong time. And it seems like while that might be true across overseas. The wrong neighborhood at the wrong time it just seems like it happens with way too much frequency. In the heart of some of the seat quote unquote safe zones in the city in the world. You know to shape for the citizens we will be talking about it there was some audio you know our point. Of very prevailed. It's been you know there was somebody at tourist boat tour is Dutch island catch them at night. Terrorist if you will turn to be talking about this is an average New Orleans. You know wasn't professional athlete it would have you know chalked up as another second degree murder. But you know we we we we we can't just sit there and this is that's part of the reason why we've become numb to it we've become. Kind of apathetic to allow its new Wallace is gonna happen. But look road railways. You know that we go week went out he would. All issues to walk the streets everybody knew all these Ireland and a student always. We gotta get out communicate and we got out at people all the east back on the streets. And where people you know. And they all took communicate. It got there and areas in the city. It is in a bad area. You know what JP cops played enough that says that no only try to get some light traffic ticket. Why can't we clean up the habit which we look anybody did mode that marriage problems that put them back out great. With seven to roll ups that we got ago properties spectacle. No I agree you're sitting at the wrong message but those those policemen in those bad neighborhoods. And they're fighting a war that they'll never they're never going to win because of the ways Senna. It's just that's an uphill battle. For policeman to go into some of these bad neighborhoods and try to get any information. Whatsoever because we're all gonna protect themselves nobody because they're all they all fear for their lives in retaliation. It's a really. It's bottle law this lawless. Little pockets. Of the city not just the city and other cities have a two. But it's got to lawlessness. Those areas it's really difficult for the police to put their hand on it. And the gravity thanks for the phone call 504260187. Text 8787 issue of sports on W to annually about a 3904. Attacks like an 8787 mean nothing will happen nothing will change the mayor rule the crimes oppose him from books in. Hey new world what about those races statutes. So now children's ears. Well. We we are partly to blame for. That we hold them accountable. As a voter base and the citizenry. Then they kick it off that east. This is this should. Grab the attention of all and it's unfortunate that. A former professional football player. Was gunned down on your streets. And murdered. By. A criminal a twenty year old who had a pretty extensive history of possession of firearms and other. Arrests. But it's unfortunate that it's going to be highlighted because of this but that's the way to start to that he he kind of have to. Taking advantage of the momentum that you have built here and I hate to say it like that but. As soon as a citizenry. You've got to figure that out and hold them accountable don't let them get off the it's it's it's a concern I've taken I don't know 8910 phone calls and expressing just that. One in which is a current saint player is actually. Who raise some concerns that he's got to think about as two. Building a family as to where they're going to live weather inside the city limits or maybe to the suburbs. Words may be a little safer as back that. Jefferson Parish residents her.

Any senseless killing any won't do it that I know take that that you know that that stuff. Trying to in answering that like that you know. You know it is that it. It's it's not meet every time that the law that. Our goal we talk about the compensation that that need to be what we deal. It's just reported in the call about ago. Rule meaning. You know part of American folks at parked out in a row and at. And I'll. But it was one of you know one of the back story that figure out bought out what in the news quote did make it moderate and there it. At the belt that you know apple as a group called eel all round shape Sadat at American. Eight talk well. Solutions. You know there are things that need to take action they're out in the community. That there or their tutoring you know. With but it. Yeah it. You know that that none of that so. All right right now I instantly become appropriate treatment. In those focus groups those. Those the ills they can be brought into the conversation they can help. Come help city leaders come up with a solution. And may be the day they had they should have a seat at the table. That would help. Patients that it they called it respective. Counsel persons in in the that district and they do. That we went in both the spotlight on politics policies and that. It. And what about Portugal. Made just resources that other groups but why is that it should opted for a and it's not. It is that these individuals is acting group oh caught it and couldn't just call. A call but. That like. Because people tend to believe some things here at all what newspapers that. I thought they don't work well you can go out and you sir. Because we're out.

Yet it is I just don't want anybody become numb to it anymore we've been numb to it for awhile. And maybe this rule. I guess bring back some Phelan some emotion to it. And it is I'll just be willing to start the conversation. As to how you can fix. A very rural very real cultural problem in the city in the world is that as a just been acknowledged by the guests here today on the show callers on the show. But the city leaders have acknowledged in the past and we've got to get that point to were were ready to have very real conversations. As to how we can remedy it. And and I just don't like the notion of let's just give up now it's it's gonna happen they're gonna beat them the thugs are going to be thugs I can't. I can't just succumb quickly how he should. It's I think it's incumbent upon you if you love the city to fight for your city. At that he's getting results go to the results go finding answers helping a part of the solution not the problem.

And that is in and Portland law passed them out and seeing it happen and unfortunately. Situations like this. You make more awareness and hopefully that you're city leaders. I that you leader of Washington DC. In the Baltimore area you know take action arguing. That problem because that is getting worse and getting worse by the day. And increasingly. So you know one bit of an. Album. Don't engage the senses that cause an accident because a situations exactly like what happened to fortune equals. What are they doing up there order leaders doing up there that try to stem this. And the state of Maryland. Has really gone to war. I have seen the state politicians. Enactment of the popular gun laws in the country. Where they're at and oh what year. They are fingerprinting every single person. Out once the Pentagon. They're talking about issuing yeah mark.

The amount of that are on the street it's just not acceptable in within a decade well now. You know we get there by. I'm gonna control need to be a compromise that that nine out of the primary people what to say that I know that. At the same time we have right there in the entire country orally and not be the Miami which was murder capital opened the and he. Okay and the apparently is now when your when he took out of control now and debt and violent occurring. In our street and unfortunately. The creek on probably like. To read out that. So. You know they're the from way they would recommend that they aren't there need to be control situation. And in lot of heat in your city if not control and there's a lot of anger. From other. Locations outside of Maryland. Quarter you know de Maryland out of out of control when you have all these killings going on. And it was absolutely a killing them and we're not. And you know did he need to take something like that they may not enough. You know you've got a lot of politicians that are very pro NRA very croak under crow not. You know background and background check and opting and it's easy to go I wanted to go he now. If it it it's gonna pay culture of the united stay in an urgent to make them change. And there's no Indian court. Scott Bergen Terry attorney at law also felt PH or like contract. Advisor here on the readable well it's just sports and Scott wants if yours quickly Fukuda and get it done in terms of the conversation about the ultimate tragedy in and what's going on in other parts of the country by a Europe present a large number of guys and get ready for the NFL draft and they're they're not a household things to be out of Iraq and the other is ability and the underdog so. And it's apart you relish wise that you relish the underdogs. Well one I need to get in becoming an Egypt and we did that a few years ago and round in the world for very long time with an attorney pat on. Not a Tunisian and with that many times. By people with in the NFL guy like you become an agent and help change yet. It is to be an agent the judiciary. To the players helping players grow young again and pictures that. They shouldn't protected due to him what color or why. So after after being notably permitting any year and we yet but I'm my condition that I wanted to go underdog. That ha. And immediately it. And yet he called the hire well there be room in each year. And we go very well be higher guy. No you they money. And the coal money. And they. And on the bench and they say. Big guys out there doing our work eat Turkey is it action. And then the EPA green it matters what eleven. I thought the agreement at all and part two players. There between tort like. The middle I wrote it in America that wrote it in the and now you have this area ha ha have. We're getting extraordinary. Unconscionable. Amount of money. I think you have the one particularly heavy. We're getting. Good money but no weird year what the top brass getting in oh you have lost it is that the all these that was going on so well parity in the NFL that's why he did last year you saw how many teams were losing compared that he would. It was it was not an even situation. An important Batman continue and all things changed with the you know so I read that table. I certainly Butler on. All over the country. Dating to. They play as well if not better than them at the ones that are just being groomed for the draft. But they don't have the attention so I operating table because these guys. The attention that he and hopefully shop where they could prove themselves worthy of being on. Scott birdman attorney at law NFL PA certified contract advisor and Scott any of those clients that that they might have a might have drawn some interest recently from. From eighteen down near the world's. Yet back chuck Johnston had drawn some interest from the being I don't know where that wind up. Shock is the as they used RD quarter year. Did a lot of great great work as a view from the Mississippi area. Egypt Saturday Miller wrote today were used to. Great to be up in mind on promote the out and player directors and they're. I had not put it revealed an in person that was New Orleans. At least the discussion there. And welcome the Portland would be interest did it bring it on the at least in the mini camp initially. I'd I would put that shot against them and it. Saturday quarterbacks are being thrown around for the first and second round draft picks. And not be very well the EP. Higher tech. To achieve a more worthy. They. All all in it challenging. Or easy that area. And as a result. You know. Now when I was on the road we. Pretty much at the GG there. Annika bear at a very day. Trader over those and Rachel Michael for example and didn't back in regular flat here. All the trainer or. Just on them. And you know the video that. On FaceBook and Twitter. And it brought out all rookie. We definitely gotten responses from like the brown the jets but again they were showing an interest and support by other players. It is part of it certainly the year looking. They're you know what did you understand it. And they're looking up for the undrafted free agent. But the teams really don't like to show what they're most interest that it what you really need only play poker game. So you have to get educated get what you think between me and he and tried to deliberate. Two and a if you questions about John there was Bentley the one that they've had on their radar at that point. Scott birdman attorney at law also NFL PA certified that contract advisor Scott before lecture on how can post a key W on social media on Twitter FaceBook. I use the pretty much the name Burton law that me Archie and in an Alley you know. Pat on Twitter mining company. Got a law that burden. It's the grand Portman. So in my web site the beeper and dot com and making an equity arm. I unlike other agent I fully disclose who Wear that. So you'll see the tape is that being in school where my content from our web site yeah agent you're not disclose. They are that. Berry and spare a life where. Scott thanks so much I appreciate it go into the rest your Sunday. I mean. And then again excitement in that the news of what happened will benefit and oral statement that he knew Portland man that. Are indeed it is it is things got it done yet I steadily on back here it's just Portland W him well enough and I welcome back it's just sports though. Reacting to tragic news that Will Smith shot last night full seats that that's in the city in the world after area. Traffic accident. Very very right on line you're on the nation's. Thanks Christian but a privilege. I mean by Jack it up. All the way back grade now that it. Hate to hear that it paid. All that bad crime problem but our crock pot certainly competent on. He did so. Our problem comes from apathy. Eat out at the table and I can. Add that bank last night and again art Sheila Butler. And wrong message to believe in it right next to criminal immoral. Now out. There right that it apple. All of this. All that is was right right that the year of the voters last night in an accident. That so there's a tie it this year. Yet the dot dot you know about public giving out batters all on it and it's better I'll get better Barack. In camp but are apt is not the way to do it. Yeah I'm hoping it's better because. We eat our neighbors in Mississippi were rely on you guys to come to the city and feel safe when you wanna vacation or has come down for weekend in. Taken some of the great season festivals and all the great food culture we have in the city we want we want that image to be pure pristine clear and in the it's safe. And a situation like this doesn't always speaks of that. Mohamed on line online when you're under B Demille him on it. I urged her home. I personally greet. All your other. All that. Whole league gold on the planes are appropriate. Cheap Oprah ER air current. It is an outrage swing we re righty. They really. And McCain guy. Or exit network belly.

A Third World this whole system the court system that is it's been a bit of an eye out for some of these criminals we've seen it.
