Peyton Manning is among the athletes cited in a lawsuit filed by a group of women alleging that the University of Tennessee has violated Title IX regulations and created a "hostile sexual environment" through a policy of indifference toward assaults by student-athletes.
Understandably wanting to prevent himself from being locked in a cage for carrying a plant, Massey thought about how he could get out of the situation.
The Tennessee lawsuit references a USA Today article about the matter; however, on Saturday, the New York Daily News published a more detailed description of both of Naughright's lawsuits, including her "facts of the case" filing in the 2003 defamation lawsuit.
There have been several sexual assault complaints made against Tennessee student-athletes over the past four years. The latter two were indicted on aggravated rape charges in February 2015 and have separate trial dates this summer.
Unfortunately for Phillips and Conner, there was a witness, Garrick Hall, who stated in a court declaration that, “Phillips had control of his body the entire time as the car was moving forward.
At no time did I see Officer John Phillips fall to the ground or appear as if he was falling to the ground.” This was officer Phillips first killing as, at the time of the shooting, he had only been on the force for two years.
The Tennessean first reported the lawsuit and Manning's involvement.
The federal suit filed Tuesday in Nashville states Tennessee's policies made students more vulnerable to sexual assault and had a "clearly unreasonable response" after incidents that caused the women making complaints to endure additional harassment.
The suit also states the university interfered with the disciplinary process to favor male athletes.
The Tennessee lawsuit alleges that in 1996, when Manning was the Volunteers' quarterback, he placed his naked genitals on the face of a female athletic trainer while she was examining him for an injury.
In 1983, Conner shot 22-year-old Bobby Joe Sales in the back after Sales fled from an attempted police stop, the Associated Press reported at the time.
Shooting an unarmed man in the back was not enough to get this cop charged, nor was it enough to even end his career as a cop, and 30 years later, he would shoot another unarmed black man who posed no threat.
One of the most disgusting examples of cops claiming to fear for their lives as cars drive off is the case of Officers Derrick Stafford and Norris Greenhouse, Jr., who, in November, opened fire on a car occupied by 6-year-old Jeremy Mardis, killing him and severely injuring his father.
