Pro Athletes The Target Of Crime

Raising a bit of awareness on the situation, Chargers linebacker Shaun Phillips blogs about the very real and very unfortunate reality that pro athletes are increasingly becoming the targets of crime. Tragedy hit the NFL when Sean Taylor was murdered during an attempted home burglary and the impact of that event was felt nationwide.

Props to Phillips for shedding some light from personal perspective.

Hi Shaun,
This is your cousin Coco from Delaware. I was just talking about this last night. I think it's crazy that people kill anyone, even professional athletes. People shouldn't ever go into someone's home and do something to them.
Hope to see you when you come see your dad.
P.S. I still want to go to the game in Balt.
