Myron Rolle Compares Jameis Winston "Slander" to Emmett Till's Murder

Maryland v Florida State

Earlier today, the New York Times released a feature on the Tallahassee Police and Florida State’s Jameis Winston investigation — or lack thereof — highlighting everything that could have been done, but wasn’t. The story’s comprehensiveness led some to wonder if these missteps were a result of incompetence, a cover-up, or both.

Myron Rolle, who played at Florida State from 2006-2009, and won a Rhodes Scholarship at Oxford University for his academic achievement, responded with a rather out there analogy:

Emmett Till was a 14-year-old African American boy who was murdered in Misssissippi in the 1950′s after allegedly flirting with a white woman.
