How can he be charged with armed robbery when he didn't steal anything and didn't attempt to steal anything?

He was charged with burglary not robbery. Go gators should be considered a racial slur by the way.

Disagree :)

But what possible racial slur could someone get from 'Go Gators'? sounds like the guy made an excuse up to try and justify what he did.

Racial slur may be a bit much. You're right krono. Crime against humanity is much more appropo.

Use of the term should definitely result in mandatory sentencing.

Living within earshot of a Gator fan should be punishment enough.

True but it's not pronounced, Gat-ors. It's Gat-ers. And if you hear the G-ers only, it's conceivable it could be mistaken for a racial slur. Not that I think this guy's in the right but you could make a case that the two words have similar sounds in them.

I'll have to keep this article in mind when the Steelers come to Cincinnati next year.
