Laundry List — Add another name to the lengthy scroll of ex-trojan Football players who’ve gotten busted: This time it is former Tight End Owen Hanson, picked up in relation to International Drug Smuggling, Money Laundering, and Perverting Justice
Usually when you hear a form of the word “pervert” in relation to U$C, you think about the trojan professor who was molesting little boys in his house under the guise of “karate lessons,” or maybe the guy who got busted in Asia for soliciting underaged boys for sex, or the Girls Gone Wild guy who was accused of exploiting minors, or maybe even the rape allegations against so many prominent trojan players.
But this time, the word is all about perverting Justice, in a grand scheme to smuggle huge amounts of drugs, and to launder a shipload of dirty money. Of course, 33-year old Owen Hanson is INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY, having at this point only been arrested, not convicted. So please infer the word ALLEGED into any headline I write, or joke I make.
That being said… Hanson’s apparent connection to Chinese Crime Figures doesn’t bode well for his future. Maybe he can wind up as O.J.’s cellmate, and they can decorate the cell in cardinal and gold. That may be unlikely, since the crime involves the U.S., Mexico, and Australia, and it is the Aussies who are trying to get him extradited, to face charges Down Under. Now I was going to make a joke about Hanson being sore Down Under after he spends a night in prison, but I don’t want to offend the guy who complained about the “deflower” headline!
Anyway… It’s just another day in the World, 9/11 actually, where crime is rampant, and there just happens to be a trojan Football player right in the middle of it. Go ahead and be shocked — SHOCKED, about this, and about the fact that there is gambling going on in Casablanca.
