The Brandon Miller case
Darius Miles and his friend Michael Davis were reportedly scared while meeting another group of people on the Strip.
Miles allegedly texted Miller to return to the crime scene with a gun, but Miller did not want to wait in line to enter a nearby restaurant and left the area.
Upon his return, Miller found that Miles had taken his gun from the back seat and given it to Davis, who fired 12 rounds, killing Jamea Harris’s mother and wounding others.
There is a disagreement between the defense and counsel over who fired the opening shot. Miller’s Tuscaloosa attorney, Jim Standridge, released a statement.
Acknowledging Miller’s proximity to the crime, but claimed that Miller did not own or use a gun and was unaware of plans involving guns. Miller cooperated with the investigation and provided full assistance to police.
Despite the incident, Miller is expected to play in a game between the Crimson Tide and South Carolina, according to ESPN and the Alabama athletic director. He currently leads the team with an average of 18.7 points per game this season.
Tragically, the encounter on the Strip resulted in the loss of life and injuries to others. It is important to investigate and hold accountable those who may have been involved in such violence.
At the same time, it is also essential to ensure that due process is followed and that those who are innocent are not wrongly accused or punished.
It is not clear from the statement whether Miller knew Miles intended to use the weapon or whether he knew of possible violence.
It is also unclear whether Miller could have prevented the tragedy. Nevertheless, it is important to consider the facts and evidence in this case and ensure that justice is done.
