I really don’t see any comparison with the Brandon Miller situation and that of Tony Mitchell, unless CNS is trying to make a case that Mitchell’s association with Christophere Lewis (passenger in car) and Miller’s association with Darius Miles and Michael “Buzz” Davis we’re both “bad decisions”. And even that is an “apples to hubcaps” comparison.
Miller was on the periphery of a situation where he was a witness. And by all accounts, completely truthful and cooperative with his testimony corroborated by the facts. Clearly a situation that CAN BE accurately described as “wrong place at the wrong time” (however tone deaf the comment may come across).
Mitchell was directly involved in the action of which he is accused, in possession of almost a half pound of weed, scales and $7000 in cash. And when the stop was attempted, Mitchell (the driver) fled reaching reported speeds in excess of 140 mph. That isn’t “wrong place at the wrong time”. That is just plain stupid decisions on top of stupid decisions. No “wrong place, wrong time” analogy is applicable.
Maybe CNS was trying to send a message to his team that the “leash is short” in terms of off the field screw ups going forward. If that is the case, he sure picked one “around the world, try to connect the dots” method to verbalize it.
