New Bronco T.J. Ward's arrest warrant for strip-club assault -- and 37 team busts since 2000

T.J. Ward. More photos and information about 37 other arrests below.
Safety T.J. Ward, a high-profile free-agent recently signed by the Broncos, is wanted for misdemeanor assault in relation to a reported May 9 incident at PT's Showclub, a strip joint. (See correction below.) And for those keeping track at home: No, he hasn't played a single down for the Broncos yet.

When Ward is formally cuffed, he'll join a long list of Broncos who've had brushes with the law. Back in 2012, we compiled a list of 34 team member arrests since 2000 -- the third most of any team in the NFL over that period at the time. Since then, that number has grown to 37 and will hit 38 after Ward's booking. See the updated roster below, published in chronological order and featuring photos, information about each allegation (some players turn up more than once) and links to incidents covered by Westword.

By the way, the specifics about each incident come courtesy of an amazing database created by the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Most charges seem like 'petty' drama.  Craps?  Stalking?  Domestic violence that was dropped?  DUI can endanger others, high degree of severity, but the penalties for these players were very *light*.  And because 75-85% of these 37 were African-Americans...the tension regarding racism ensues...

@fishingblues @fishingblues_mama Yes, yes, you're so big and strong and tough, sweetie; and not a pathetic lonely old man, shaking with impotent rage like a chihuahua, talking trash to people who you know will never take you up on your offer, because it's a felony to hit a crazy little old man. 

You're still my little pants-wetting Draft Dodger. Or would you like to lie to the nice people some more?

@fishingblues @fishingblues_mama Still more on the cults messiah: 

8. Reagan illegally funneled weapons to Iran. Reagan and other senior U.S. officials secretly sold arms to officials in Iran, which was subject to a an arms embargo at the time, in exchange for American hostages. Some funds from the illegal arms sales also went to fund anti-Communist rebels in Nicaragua — something Congress had already prohibited the administration from doing. When the deals went public, the Iran-Contra Affair, as it came to be know, was an enormous political scandal that forced several senior administration officials to resign.

9. Reagan vetoed a comprehensive anti-Apartheid act. which placed sanctions on South Africa and cut off all American trade with the country. Reagan’s veto was overridden by the Republican-controlled Senate. Reagan responded by saying “I deeply regret that Congress has seen fit to override my veto,” saying that the law “will not solve the serious problems that plague that country.”

10. Reagan helped create the Taliban and Osama Bin Laden. Reagan fought a proxy war with the Soviet Union by training, arming, equipping, and funding Islamist mujahidin fighters in Afghanistan. Reagan funneled billions of dollars, along with top-secret intelligence and sophisticated weaponry to these fighters through the Pakistani intelligence service. The Talbian and Osama Bin Laden — a prominent mujahidin commander — emerged from these mujahidin groups Reagan helped create, and U.S. policy towards Pakistan remains strained because of the intelligence services’ close relations to these fighters. In fact, Reagan’s decision to continue the proxy war after the Soviets were willing to retreat played a direct role in Bin Laden’s ascendancy.

@fishingblues @fishingblues_mama  Thank you for once again being such a fine example of how defective conservatives are.

Once again, you aren't on the topic....while we're off topic, consider:

1. Reagan was a serial tax raiser. As governor of California, Reagan “signed into law the largest tax increase in the history of any state up till then.” Meanwhile, state spending nearly doubled. As president, Reagan “raised taxes in seven of his eight years in office,” including four times in just two years. As former GOP Senator Alan Simpson, who called Reagan “a dear friend,” told NPR, “Ronald Reagan raised taxes 11 times in his administration — I was there.” “Reagan was never afraid to raise taxes,” said historian Douglas Brinkley, who edited Reagan’s memoir. Reagan the anti-tax zealot is “false mythology,” Brinkley said.

2. Reagan nearly tripled the federal budget deficit. During the Reagan years, the debt increased to nearly $3 trillion, “roughly three times as much as the first 80 years of the century had done altogether.” Reagan enacted a major tax cut his first year in office and government revenue dropped off precipitously. Despite the conservative myth that tax cuts somehow increase revenue, the government went deeper into debt and Reagan had to raise taxes just a year after he enacted his tax cut. Despite ten more tax hikes on everything from gasoline to corporate income, Reagan was never able to get the deficit under control.

3. Unemployment soared after Reagan’s 1981 tax cuts. Unemployment jumped to 10.8 percent after Reagan enacted his much-touted tax cut, and it took years for the rate to get back down to its previous level. Meanwhile, income inequality exploded. Despite the myth that Reagan presided over an era of unmatched economic boom for all Americans, Reagan disproportionately taxed the poor and middle class, but the economic growth of the 1980′s did little help them. “Since 1980, median household income has risen only 30 percent, adjusted for inflation, while average incomes at the top have tripled or quadrupled,” the New York Times’ David Leonhardt noted.

4. Reagan grew the size of the federal government tremendously. Reagan promised “to move boldly, decisively, and quickly to control the runaway growth of federal spending,” but federal spending “ballooned” under Reagan. He bailed out Social Security in 1983 after attempting to privatize it, and set up a progressive taxation system to keep it funded into the future. He promised to cut government agencies like the Department of Energy and Education but ended up adding one of the largest — the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, which today has a budget of nearly $90 billion and close to 300,000 employees. He also hiked defense spending by over $100 billion a year to a level not seen since the height of the Vietnam war.

5. Reagan did little to fight a woman’s right to choose. As governor of California in 1967, Reagan signed a bill to liberalize the state’s abortion laws that “resulted in more than a million abortions.” When Reagan ran for president, he advocated a constitutional amendment that would have prohibited all abortions except when necessary to save the life of the mother, but once in office, he “never seriously pursued” curbing choice.

6. Reagan was a “bellicose peacenik.” He wrote in his memoirs that “[m]y dream…became a world free of nuclear weapons.” “This vision stemmed from the president’s belief that the biblical account of Armageddon prophesied nuclear war — and that apocalypse could be averted if everyone, especially the Soviets, eliminated nuclear weapons,” the Washington Monthly noted. And Reagan’s military buildup was meant to crush the Soviet Union, but “also to put the United States in a stronger position from which to establish effective arms control” for the the entire world — a vision acted out by Regean’s vice president, George H.W. Bush, when he became president.

7. Reagan gave amnesty to 3 million undocumented immigrants. Reagan signed into law a bill that made any immigrant who had entered the country before 1982 eligible for amnesty. The bill was sold as a crackdown, but its tough sanctions on employers who hired undocumented immigrants were removed before final passage. The bill helped 3 million people and millions more family members gain American residency. It has since become a source of major embarrassment for conservatives.

creepy guy calling breast pump sellers 


http://denver.craigslist.org/bab/4437757038.html

Ladies please beware. A man called claiming to want info about my breast pump for sale for his wife. Asked lots of detailed questions about breast size, nipples and aereola sizes to "compare" to his wife. Took me a few minutes to catch on. It was obvious after a few minutes because of his breathing and him not being interested in anything except how the shields fit. 

Beware ladies!!! What a creepy asshole

But then he'd run away again, I think.

You are both scum, go for the scrum.
