Plotting to take revenge on someone for making racist remarks by robbing them? Probably not what Martin Luther King Jr. would have recommended. But if that’s the route you’re going to go, at least make sure that you rob the right people. Otherwise, you just look sloppy. That’s the hard lesson that the SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE is reporting that Cal fullback R.J. Garrett and former teammate Gary Doxy allegedly learned.
According to police (and nothing good comes after that phrase), the two had heard about racial slurs made by a white member of the Cal crew team to a black female student and friend. So their solution was to break into the guy’s dorm room and rob the place. Which might have served some bizarre form of comeuppance if they had in fact targeted the right person.
