    Default GQ publishes alleged 1st-hand account of Marvin H shooting

    http://www.gq.com/sports/profiles/20...arvin-harrison

    ..."Nixon was across the street and thirty yards away when Harrison started shooting. Pop pop pop pop pop pop—a great staccato gust of bullets. Steadily, Nixon says, Harrison unloaded both guns into the fat man's car, stippling the red Toyota Tundra with bullet holes as the fat man ducked in his seat. Eventually, the fat man sat up and sped off, heading straight toward Nixon's position as Harrison darted into the street and continued to shoot...."

    While I'm not saying its impossible for this to be true how come Marvin isn't in jail right now if so?

    One would think if all this is true the DA would've been able to have a conviction.

    I just find it suspect he's telling a magazine this story and not the police.

    He didn't.

    From the bottom of the article --

    *Re-created from interviews, court filings, and police reports, and told through the eyes of Robert Nixon.
    It was just the way it was written that made it seem that way. Silly writers, tricks are for magicians!

    Isn't Nixon dead? I thought he was shot down by an unidentified assailant recently. If so, maybe that is why when you see something, you don't talk, and you don't let anyone convince you otherwise at some later date.

    A re-creation of a possible truth, that's all. Nobody will ever know for sure, but the whole situation has always seemed creepy.

    Still I find it suspect because its been what two years and we're hearing about this now? And how can any of this be proven one way or another?

    Nixon was a witness who happend to be shot in the back as he ran from the scene.

    Dixon was the one shot at and then murdered later.

    Eh, good player, crappy person, no surprise.
    You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....

    There's a pretty big damn gap between "crappy person" and murderer.

    I don't know if he is either one of them, but if he's the latter I hope he gets what's coming to him.

    Agreed, maybe someday I'll be able to enlighten my thoughts on one Mr. Harrison more thoroughly. Lets just say I am not a big fan of his so my opinion is clouded.

    Looks like the FBI is joining in on the probe.

    They better have something legit to base this on and not some article in GQ I'd hate for this to be for political reasons...


    If Marvin is guilty he should be in jail.

    Its always the quiet ones. Sitting by hisself on the end of the bench on the sidelines. Its all makes sense now.
    Fire up that tank and drive it to the lottery then to the draft
