Ex-NFL Player Saw Siegfried, Roy As Threat

Quote:
LAS VEGAS - A former pro football player accused of shooting at the compound of Siegfried & Roy wanted to "warn the world" of the threat posed by the illusionists, according to a psychiatric report.

The evaluation was performed by psychiatrist Norton Roitman after Cole Ford was charged with firing several shotgun blasts at the Las Vegas home of entertainers Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn.

Ford, 32, a former kicker for the Oakland Raiders, has been ruled incompetent to stand trial and sent to a mental health facility for treatment.

Ford maintained he never intended to harm anyone and his actions were intended to "warn the world of the illusionists' unhealthy danger to them and to animals," according to the report published in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

"While watching Siegfried and Roy, he had a sudden realization that what was wrong with the world was linked to the illusionists' treatment, dominance and unhealthy intimacy he saw them having with their animals," Roitman wrote.

Ford told Roitman that he thought the entertainers' contact with their animals was sexual and related to the development of viruses such as AIDS.

"He felt they threatened (the) world, and he began to figure out how he could stop them," Roitman said.

No one was hurt in the Sept. 21 drive-by shooting, but police said shotgun pellets shattered windows and left a hole in an outside wall at the magicians' home.

Roitman said Ford was not paranoid schizophrenic but had shown symptoms of the illness. Ford had been working as a laborer in the Las Vegas area before he was arrested.

Is it a coincidence that he's a former Raider? I think not.

Their home is probably bigger than a city block and having seen their home from a distance and the inside on television, I'd say it is big enough for 2 families of four living there and never seeing or knowing the other family is there.

So saying they live together in that doesn't mean much..... hell, I'd share a house like that with even my worst enemy.

As for the article, could be worse..... could have been Mike Tyson shooting....lol....

Hey, wait a minute!

I am reminded of Rdr4evr's sig...

Quote:
"In football, I root for the Oakland Raiders, because they hire castoffs, outlaws, malcontents and fuck-ups. They have lots of penalties, fights, and paybacks. And because Al Davis told the rest of the pig NFL owners to go get fucked! Someday the Raiders will be strong again and they will dip the ball in shit and shove it down the throats of the wholesome, shitty, heartland teams that pray together and don't deliver late hits." - George Carlin
Hmmm....maybe it's not a coincidence after all....

I love my Raiders, but it's true, they do manage to draw a lot of "fuck-ups."

its becoming a disturbing trend on TFP to put words in peoples mouths and then put quotes around the word as if the person actually said said word

So.....Carlin didn't use the word "fuck-ups?"

I'm confused, cause I'm looking at the Carlin quote (it's right there in the box) and I clearly see the phrase "fuck-ups." It's right after "...malcontents and..."

Did I misuse the punctuation? Or did you misread the post and subsequently not understand the intent?

Either way, thanks for bringing your cup to the conversation.

haha
