Another Case of Favoritism for Florida State Athlete?

November 17, 2014

The New York Times has published another investigative report detailing special treatment for a Florida State University football player, in this case with the favoritism coming both from the local and university police forces. The report concerns what appears to be an open-and-shut case of hit-and-run by P.J. Williams, the football player, who left the scene of an accident. The Times compares his treatment -- traffic tickets -- with that received by another hit-and-run driver, who faced much more serious charges.

Sports Illustrated reported on how Florida State fans responded by tagging the article as spam, resulting in Twitter briefly blocking links to the article.
