    Default OT: Lincoln (PA)

    Anybody see this story? Seven members of men's basketball team arrested.

    A report said the university posted their bond and they played Wednesday night.

    How bizarre. I guess we can assume that the school knows enough of the details that they decided to let the kids play...and pay for their bail. I'll be interested to see the full story, if it ever sees the light of day.

    Maybe the the coach pressured the kids to increase their steals. Lol

    I read on Twitter that the players apartments were robbed during a game. They knew who did it. They weren't real happy.

    Lincoln is state funded. Imagine how some in Harrisburg would react if IUP paid for players' bail.

    Exactly the players knew who robbed them went and kicked a&s unfortunately police were called and they were all arrested. The robbers apparently were targeting athletes from both the men's and women's BB teams knowing they would be away from their dorms during games which allowed them ample time to run in their dorms/apartments and take their personal belongings. The university had evidence and thus bailed the players out rightfully and the charges should be dropped in the near future.

    Great to hear that they are ok. Glad they kicked butt too as that will probably harshest penalty robbers will receive

    This is good to know. At first glance I though they were the ones making the thefts. In this case I hope that the charges are dropped. I'd be furious if I found the people who were ripping me off.

    How is that even legal under NCAA rules? Am I missing something here?

    There are proper ways to handle these things, and going all vigilante isn’t one of them.

    Those felony charges aren't exactly like getting caught underage drinking.

    I like the part that the basketball players are allowed back in the dorm but the non-basketball player isn't.

    I bet some away crowds are going to love Lincoln visiting. That's every student sections dream right there.

    Yep. Handle things the right way and the players are looking at no issues. Handle things like they did by engaging in felony assault and felony theft and you are no better than the scum bag thief AND you have effectively ended your basketball career. I really don't understand Lincoln letting the players continue to play. They are effectively saying that it's OK to engage in mob "justice" provided you or a friend of yours is a victim. Wonder what Lincoln would say if the players had killed the scum bag during the beat down? I wonder if they would condone other students taking things into their own hands? Somebody run into your car in the parking lot? Figure out who you think it is, nock on his or her door and kick their ass...and take their iPhone and Xbox as "pay back."

    Of course...Lincoln's basketball team is off to it's best start in history...soooooooooo...Lincoln will probably let the judicial process play out...Innocent until PROVEN guilty after all. No point ruining a historic season with the "law"!!

    Without having the time to look it up - my concern is that a lot of schools have automatic interim suspensions of students with pending felony charges. Are these students suspended from school? They can't play then.

    I have no pity for a thief and personally feel like the guy got off with an appropriate punishment. On the flip side I get not wanting to condone the mob justice mentality on a college campus so I am torn here.

    If I was the prosecutor I'd let the players cut a deal for community service and mandatory anger management classes.
