The Humanitarian's compassion for a convict over victim

In news that will surprise no one, another Trojan is going to jail:

A Compton jury on Wednesday found USC linebacker recruit Maurice Simmons guilty of two felonies and a misdemeanor in connection with a street robbery in March.

Simmons' codefendant, Lamont Lee Hall, was also found guilty. 

Simmons, a Compton Dominguez High graduate, had been charged with felony robbery, assault with a firearm and a misdemeanor charge of allowing someone to bring a gun into his car. He will be sentenced Aug. 28.

Instead of feeling sorry for the victim of the crime who was robbed and assaulted with a gun, Peetie is feeling sorry for his recruit:

USC Coach Pete Carroll called it "the most unfortunate news we could get for Maurice and for his family. We feel sorry for everything they have to go through."

In Peetie and SuC’s world the victims of TrOJan’s perpetrated crimes don’t matter. It is all about showing concern about the tragedy of not having an athlete available for the next game.

No one should celebrate a kid going to jail. It is sad for everyone involved. Still the way these jerks across town continue to show a total lack of perspective is disturbing but not shocking.
