As much as I like to bash Goodell:

Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement: "This is such a tragic loss of life. Our thoughts are with Will's wife Racquel and their three children. He will be missed by many teammates and friends."

Re: Ex-Saints DE Will Smith killed; wife shot after traffic accident

For those misinformed, mistaken gun-control idiotic liberty-abandonment liberals, be informed of the following:

Will Smith's alledged shooter's (Cardell Hayes) father (Anthony Hayes) was fatally shot by NOPD in 2006 while charging Lt. William Ceravolo with a knife; Ceravolo, now in private security had just been celebrating with Will Smith, Pierre Thomas and family; coincidentally, attorneys representing the Hayes family were able to secure a settlement from the City of New Orleans (wow, imagine the surprise) who had been seeking four million dollars (Cardale was rolling in a Hummer2 that hit the Smith car)...

Source(s): New Orleans reaches settlement over police shooting | NOLA.com


So those of you thinking 'road rage' and 'gun control' can stow it away as this 'may' have been premeditated...

Most shootings in New Orleans are locals on locals anyways as most of the Landreiu-sheltered thugs know that people from the outer-lying parishes (counties) are usually carrying while visiting or conducting business in the city and know not to **** 'with someone from the bayou parishes' so you can abort hijacking this story as another opportunity to assault second amendment rights that our Founding Fathers sought fit in their wisdom to weave into our Constitution...

Re: Will Smith of the New Orleans Saints shot to death in car, wife wounded



That mofos is 6ft 6


Cardell Hayes, suspected of killing former Saints player Will Smith, sued city of New Orleans after police killed dad in 2005





Cardell Hayes, the suspect in former Saints Pro Bowler Will Smith’s fatal shooting late Saturday, filed a high-profile lawsuit against the city of New Orleans after police officers killed his father in a December 2005 incident, his ex-attorney confirmed Sunday.

One of the defendants mentioned in that lawsuit had dined with Smith shortly before the former football pro was killed.
Hayes’ father, Anthony, was mentally unstable and had gotten into an argument with an employee at a St. Charles Avenue pharmacy while holding a pocket knife when officers first pepper-sprayed, then shot and killed him, officials said. Hayes, now 28, sued for damages, alleging that officers should have used non-lethal force -- such as a stun gun -- to subdue his father, but none of the cops had such a tool.
The litigation was settled in 2011 for an undisclosed amount of money that could be described as “large,” said attorney Ike Spears, who represented Hayes in that matter but is not involved in the Smith case.
One of the defendants named in the lawsuit Hayes filed against the city was Billy Ceravolo, who retired from the New Orleans Police Department as a captain in 2013 after 25 years on the force. The lawsuit accused Ceravolo of being among several officers to fatally shoot Anthony Hayes.

More On This Topic

Officials claimed Anthony Hayes threatened Ceravolo with his knife after the officer repeatedly told him to put it down.
Ceravolo on Sunday said he was eating dinner with Smith and former Saints running back Pierre Thomas at a restaurant in the Lower Garden District shortly before authorities said Smith was rear-ended by Cardell Hayes, 28, on a nearby street.
Police allege that Hayes fatally shot Smith and wounded his wife, Racquel, during an argument that erupted after the collision.


Ceravolo, who called Smith and Thomas personal friends, said he was not at the scene of the shooting when it occurred and was not aware that Hayes had named him in his federal lawsuit.
Police detained Hayes on Saturday night and booked him with second-degree murder on Sunday morning after questioning him.



Aside from his wife, Smith’s survivors include three young children

Don't know if this ahs been posted. Ahhhh, social media where the story gets to the bottom before the police and media.

Seems to me. Premeditated murder. Revenge killing.

Re: Ex-Saints DE Will Smith killed; wife shot after traffic accident

Keep it together, New Orleans.

Guys, its all gonna start now. Just like after the Storm.
All kinds of people saying all kinds of things.
Lets dont do it this time.
Lets dont turn on each other.
Lets dont try to make this into some sort of piece of the bigger picture.
Im sure a certain Other Site is melting down right now.
Lets dont do it.
Lets take this time to mourn a man, a Saint, and his family.
Let everyone else politicize.
And lets see what we can do, just as people, one on one, to preserve
the great beauty of New Orleans, and so many good people.
You can live in Acadiana, Shreveport, MS, TX, or the world, but our heart
is in New Orleans.
You are the Good People of New Orleans.
Lets keep it beautiful.
