Thumbs down Iverson's fear of police: I could be dead tomorrow

Iverson's fear of police: I could be dead tomorrow

Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia 76ers guard Allen Iverson is afraid police are targeting him and he might want to leave the city, according to published reports.

"I want to be in Philadelphia, but I'm scared to be here," the NBA star told The Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News in Tuesday's editions.

They were Iverson's first public comments about his off-the-court troubles last summer.

Police commissioner Sylvester M. Johnson has ordered his department to look into the matter, according to reports out of Philadelphia on Wednesday.

Johnson has directed deputy commissioner John Norris, the head of internal affairs, to contact the Sixers "in an attempt to interview Mr. Iverson or his family regarding his allegations of police misconduct," William Colarulo, chief of the department's public affairs unit, told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

I assume you're joking, Sam, but don't ever joke about that.

It was just a foolish thing to say by AI. If he ever gets into trouble, he can always say, "See, just what I was saying..." -- it's almost as if he's protecting himself for the future.

I don't really know, Marc, but I hate Iverson... I don't really want him to die... I guess I'm just mad.

He has no fear on the courts. He scored 37 in leading Philadelphia to their 10th win and beating Toronto.

I think its a paradoxic statement made by Iverson. One would think that if cops are crooked (I wonder what the answer to that one is...) then they some of them might target Iverson for the same reasons he is so highy exulted/criticized (lifestyle, fame, money, etc). So I think its a fair statement in that regard. However I don't think being a bad-ass is the same as being a good citizen. He appears to many of us as the same, spoiled American athlete that we have seen over and over again.
