Ray Lewis: NFL Lockout = More Crime

23 May 2011 No Comment

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis talked about how crime in the United States would increase if they are not the NFL season in 2011. He said this in an interview with ESPN on Sunday.

Sal Paolantonio, Lewis interviewer then asked, why he thought this would happen. The 36 years old male said that the people and may include NFL players will switch to criminal activity in the absence of the regular season because “nothing else to do.”

“Do this research if we don’t have a season. Watch how much evil, which we call crime, watch how much crime picks up, if you take away our game. There’s too many people that live through us, people live through us.”

“Do this research if we don’t have a season. Watch how much evil, which we call crime, watch how much crime picks up, if you take away our game. There’s too many people that live through us, people live through us.”

Lewis made this statement on the grounds that people who watch football on Sundays now have to find something to do with their time, so why not just steal and commit crimes? It was fun to do wild things with your friends.

I may not fully agree with Lewis, having seen several cases where someone got in trouble with the law when they watch football. And may remove some hours of the week would create a serious impact in the U.S. crime rate.

Even if when there is NFL football, sometimes there are people who drive drunk after watching the game at the bar. But I agree that horrible lockout must end soon, but did not think it will affect the level of criminality.
