The investigation into what happened between LSU football players and others at a bar fight last Thursday night continues, and on Wednesday police were at the homes of four different LSU players, including Jordan Jefferson, searching for evidence. This after the Baton Rouge police interviewed the players on Tuesday, though no charges were filed.

What exactly were the police looking for in the player's home on Wednesday? Well, if Jordan Jefferson's bare feet are any indication, they were looking for some shoes. From our LSU Rapid Reporter Glenn Gulibeau:
Baton Rouge Police took the shoes off QB Jordan Jefferson's feet and 48 other pairs from his apartment during a search Wednesday night in relation to the ongoing investigation into Jefferson's and three other players' involvement in a bar fight last week, police spokesman Don Stone said. "Police seized 49 pairs of (athletic) shoes," Stone said.
That is a lot of shoes.

Police spokesman Don Stone would not comment directly on why the police were so interested in Jefferson's shoes, but he did say that the police usually look for blood stains on the clothes. There have been reports that one member of the LSU football team kicked a Marine in the face during the fight, though those reports have not been confirmed by the police.

It is a very funny thing that the sleepier you are, the longer you take about getting to bed; especially if you are lucky enough to have a fire in your room. Jill felt she couldn't even start undressing unless she sat down in front of the fire for a bit first. And once she had sat down, she didn't want to get up again. She had already said to herself about five times, I must go to bed, when she was startled by a tap on the window. She got up, pulled the curtain, and at first saw nothing but darkness. Then she jumped and started backwards, for something very large had dashed itself against the window, giving a sharp tap on the glass as. it did so. A very unpleasant idea came into her head - Suppose they have giant moths in this country! Ugh! But then the thing came back, and this time she was almost sure she saw a beak, and that the beak had made that tapping noise. It's some huge bird, thought Jill. Could it be an eagle? She didn't very much want a visit even from an eagle, but she opened the window and looked out. Instantly, with a great whirring noise, the creature alighted on the window-sill and stood there filling up the whole window, so that Jill had to step back to make room for it. It was the Owl. Hush, hush! Tu-whoo, tu-whoo, said the Owl. Don't make a noise. Now, are you two really in earnest about what you've got to do? About the lost Prince, you mean? said Jill. Yes, we've got to be. For now she remembered the Lion's voice and face, which she had nearly forgotten during the feasting and story-telling in the hall. Good! said the Owl. Then there's no time to waste. You must get away from here at once. I'll go and wake the other human. Then I'll come back for you. You'd better change those court clothes and put on something you can travel in. I'll be back in two twos. Tu-whoo! And without waiting for an answer, he was gone. If Jill had been more used to adventures, she might have doubted the Owl's word, but this never occurred to her: and in the exciting idea of a midnight escape she forgot her sleepiness. She changed back into sweater and shorts there was a guide's knife on the belt of the shorts which might come in useful - and added a few of the things that had been left in the room for her by the girl with the willowy hair. She chose a short cloak that came down to her knees and had a hood,a few handkerchiefs and a comb. Then she sat down and waited. She was getting sleepy again when the Owl returned. Now we're ready, it said. You'd better lead the way, said Jill. hyd

Police take 49 pairs of shoes from Jefferson

 

As recent economic reports fan fears and paint a dim jobs picture in the US and Europe, economists are predicting the worst economic recovery in the post-World War era. Policy-makers around the globe have put creating jobs on as their top agenda. It was also a hot topic at the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Latin America, held last week in the beautiful seaside town of Puerto Vallarta.At the Young Global Leader (YGL) Annual Summit that took place alongside the WEF meeting, President Felipe Caldron of Mexico, himself a YGL from the class of 1997, shared his vision on channeling long-dated pension assets into infrastructure investments, with an aim to create economic growth and jobs.In the aftermath of the global crisis, advanced and emerging economies diverge in many areas. The Euro zone has been dealing with banking and sovereign debt crises. In the US, the government and private debt, as well as slow-recovering job market dominate the market sentiment. India is dealing with its perpetual poverty and income disparity challenges, while uk is trying to beef up its domestic demand.In all these countries, however, infrastructure development is seen as a key driver that could create jobs in the near terms and build a platform for growth in the future. McKinsey projected that $8 trillion will be committed in Asia over the next decade to infrastructure projects to remedy historical underinvestment and to accommodate the explosion in demand. The World Bank put the annual infrastructure deficit in Africa at $93 billion.So why is a major global infrastructure expansion not happening?At a well-attended WEF lunch discussion on infrastructure investments chaired by my good friend Reuben Abraham from India School of Business, I shared with the audience some of my views on this question.The biggest challenge today is the lack of long-termism and excessive reliance on liquidity in capital deployment. Take Asia as an example. In developing Asia, the savings rate is about 37%, far above the level of infrastructure investment that is needed at 20%. Asia's sovereign wealth funds manage over $1,200 billion of assets, and government pension assets in Asia exceed $1,500 billion. However, infrastructure project finance receives very little funding from these sources. zby

Police take 49 pairs of shoes from Jefferson

Most of the Marines I have ever met or knew were the biggest losers/holes I have ever met. They would always start fights for no reason just because they think they are tough. Stupid bullet-stoppers! The only people who join the Marines are morons. The smart ones join the Navy or Air Force.

the numbers of shoe pairs is really not even close to the most important issue here. there's a MARINE (with a record? oh, THAT never happens) got WHUPPED by a QUARTERBACK. in what universe should that EVER happen? watch out "semper fi"s... they have a real touch kicker too.

Police take 49 pairs of shoes from Jefferson

I do not think there will be any sort of coverup on anyone's part related to this situation.  This issue has become to high profile for the police to look the other way if real evidence is found.  I really want it resolved prior to the season opener.  From what I have read, as usual, there is a female involved and she was somehow involved with both Jefferson and one of the victims.  So, that does not sound like someone just blowing a horn and then taking a beating.  There may have been some bad blood there, and that would make it more likely that Jefferson did the kicking.  I am not accusing him, but the whole random beating thing just did not make sense.  Fighting over a female, while not bright, is much more common.

Oops. Looks like they DID release injury reports of the victims today. And the most serious injury is 3 fractured vertebrae. That's seems pretty serious to me... considering he could have been paralyzed. Jefferson has some locals assisting in what seems to be a cover-up, but the DNA won't lie. We'll see...

Police take 49 pairs of shoes from Jefferson

Really? How many cops do you think it takes to carry a box of shoes? Baton Rouge isn't that big of a place. I could hit all 4 player's houses within an hour and I'm guessing they probably sent 2 cops to collect the potential evidence. Whoa! That's a LOT of resources. And they haven't released info about the injuries in the fight, so who says this wasn't a serious crime? But they did kick a U.S. Marine in the face. You're not likely to get much latitude with the law when you kick a serviceman while he's on the ground (many cops are ex-military). I would normally assume that you're an LSU homer with that type of defense for Jefferson, but an LSU fan should know that Baton Rouge isn't in Tennessee (actually, I'd figure any American would know Baton Rouge isn't in TN). I guess you're just a F'n idiot...

And in regards to the shoes, I have about 20 pairs of shoes that were given to me by a friend that runs D1 track. (he gave me the ones he doesn't wear and still has over 100 pairs) It's a common NCAA violation that usually goes overlooked. Adidas, Nike, New Balance, Puma, Under Armor, Reebok, etc all give shoes to NCAA atheletes. LSU probably wasn't involved but he could still face some personal sanctions if they can prove he didn't pay for them. They actually might investigate that further if they are suspicious, like if the shoes are all brand new and in the box and of the $150/pair variety.
