Twitter torches DA for not prosecuting Cam Robinson, Hootie Jones
Earlier today, Monroe (LA) District Attorney Jerry Jones made the decision to drop the case against Alabama players Cam Robinson and Hootie Jones after the two had initially been hit with some tough charges.
Though it is surely a relief to Crimson Tide fans — along with coach Nick Saban — the announcement didn’t sit well with many others outside of Tuscaloosa. Here’s a compilation of Twitter reactions following the huge news:
Remember kids, if you’re good at football, you can get away with literally anything.

I mean really if you think about it, as long as you work hard you should be able to do illegal things.

My classmate went to prison for having like two ounces of Coke. Alabama players broke multiple laws and won't be prosecuted. How lucky.
