Fmr. Denver Asst. DA: Sheriff was wrong in arresting Kobe

Craig Silverman, former Denver chief deputy district attorney, said identifying Bryant as a suspect before Hurlbert decides whether to file charges was unfair and unnecessary.

"It is foolish to arrest somebody like Kobe Bryant and run his name through the mud if the district attorney is not going to follow up and file charges," Silverman said. "It serves no legitimate purpose. It signals that law enforcement is out to hurt Kobe Bryant."

He said it would be appropriate to arrest suspects in cases where they are likely to flee or commit new crimes. But that isn't the case with Bryant, he said.

In her statement Sunday, Mackey had also said the issuance of the arrest warrant "illustrates the complete bias of the sheriff's office, the law enforcement agency charged with investigating the allegations against Mr. Bryant and searching for the truth."

Hoy denied Mackey's assertions of bias, saying, "I guess I would have to know her definition of bias. She needs to be more to the point on what bias means."



LOL. This statement by the Sheriff is really stupid. If he were smart he would deny that his office has any bias against Kobe in any way. To say that "it all depends on her definition of bias" to me shows that his office is out to get Kobe for whatever reason.

Funny the thing's Cities will do to try and stop a champion. Sacramento poisons Kobe's Burger in a Hotel room to try and keep him from playing and now it seems Denver is trying to put Kobe in Jail to keep him from playing. I'm telling you guys, the Sheriff must be a Nuggets fan.

This idiot of a sheriff better start looking at the classifieds very soon, because as soon as everything gets cleared, his [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] is going to be unemployed.

This makes it even more interesting since the Sheriff said that there was no urgency in arresting Kobe. If that's the case, then how come he was arrested so soon????? Why couldn't they have gone through this case like Silverman suggested... apparently Kobe ISN'T getting the same treatment as every other case... it's like the sheriff was in such a rush to arrest a big name, that he didn't go through the DA like would usually be done. Hmmmmm.....

LOL!!! I think somebody's trying to blackmail KB to sign with the Nuggets next off-season. :man10:

Seriously, I hope this thing'll be over very soon. :smash:

hahaha c'mon guys get real...

on a serious note though, this guy could get his [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] canned after this is all settled though. he should have followed proper procedure so there's no controversy.

Slava laughed at the suggestion his skills might be affected by the down time. "Are you kidding?" he said. "Basketball is like ball. It's all a circle."
