Search for Ed Reed’s brother called off

Ed Reed, Mohamed Massaquoi

Ravens safety Ed Reed will play with a heavy heart Sunday after the search for his missing brother was called off by police Saturday.

Reed’s mother confirmed that police found Brian Reed’s jacket and shoes after he jumped in the Mississippi River.  Brian Reed was being chased by authorities after they stopped him in what was believed to be a stolen car.

Ed Reed told ESPN’s Rachel Nichols he broke down crying while in a team meeting Saturday.   He is active on Sunday despite being limited in practice all week.

    Our thoughts are with you, Ed.

    My thoughts are this….one less criminal on the streets…Perhaps, your thoughts are better served for the Police officer who was killed in Baltimore yesterday, in the line of duty…

    Thoughts and prayers to Ed and his family.

    Well, if he jumped into a river to run from the cops then he must have done something wrong. Were not talking about a dime bag here…Whatever he did he must have known would result in years of jail. Either way, I hope he’s okay.

    My thought and prayers are not with the family who died while commiting a felony and running from the police. 1 less felon out there who may possibly commit a crime against me or my family.

    My thoughts and prayers are with our military service members, police officers, firemen and parmedics who put their lives on the line every day to our safety… Not this effing DB!

    There but for the grace of god go I.
    It is a tragic choice the young man evidently made.

    I have avoided reading about it, does anyone know how the Police know it was him?

    The Bal’mer word on the street differs from the official line, as elsewhere, I would assume.
    How do we know what happened?
    We do not. We must take it on faith, which is too often in short supply, exacerbated by what seems to be a bit of a deluge of improper official behavior.

    This is a predictable side effect of the “War on Drugs”. which is the coin flip of “war on the people”, increasing the adversarial nature of the impossible official role.

    My thoughts go out to the Reed family, and to all folks caught up in this deadly whirlpool.

    There but for the grace of god go I.

    Aren’t you the example of compassion, and hypocrisy. Save your prayers. People like you give Christianity a bad name.

    People, don’t be insensitive to what has occurred. Regardless of what he did, he was still a son, a brother and bevy of other things. All this talk about “one less criminal” and this, that and the third is un-called for. A man may have lost his life and he will be missed.

    It’s always sad when someone dies, it’s just tough for lots of us to feel alot of compassion sometimes when bad things happen to bad people. I can’t say I know this guys history, but based on what I read the dude was running from the cops it’s the old cliche, you are a product of your environment and parenting. Reading the mom’s comments about being kinda off and on drugs, leads me to believe that may be half the problem. Hey all of us make mistakes in life, most of us learn from them. Karma is for real. Anyways, it’s sad, and you and your family are in our thoughts Ed.

    Don’t worry. He’ll surface somewhere!

  13. jabeus says: Jan 9, 2011 3:50 PM

    you people should be ashamed of yourself!!!!!!!! It doesn’t matter what the guy did. He is still someones brother and son! Yes he made mistakes but he is a human. You sit in your high places and judge people and it’s wrong!!! imagine it was your brother or son, you would not condone what he did but you would still be saddened by his loss!! you ignorant people who leave those insensitive comments either go away or have some respect at least least for his family!

    It’s real easy to ride in on your high horse and judge everyone’s comments, but I bet if a criminal like Ed Reeds brother ran a member of your family off the road and killed them you’d have a slightly different outlook on the situation!!!

    I guess Brian Reed should have spent a little less time in the streets, and a little more time in the pool @ the YMCA.

    ===========================
    police officers have been known TO GUN PEOPLE down in the back – Sean Bell, NYC, Oscar Grant, BART, Oakland, CA

    and while the military arent shredding iraqi civilians – see Collateral Murder

    yes, they deserve our prayers that they come home safely from a war WHERE NO WMD was found and an illegal one.

    You better believe our prayers are with Ed Reed, hypocrite! Who is praying for soldiers carrying out genocide in Iraq and Afghanistan. Get off the soap box.

    Regardless of what his brother did, its not for any one of us to judge. My thoughts and prayers go out to Ed Reed, his mother, and the rest of his family. The loss of a loved one is difficult, NO MATTER the circumstance. Shame on those who feel they have a right to judge.

  18. wayupsouth says: Jan 9, 2011 8:40 PM

    “Interview the fish”? “Don’t worry, he’ll surface somewhere”? Honest to God, has technology officially divested us of our sense of decency, or does it just make immature, sociopathic little turds feel emboldened to spew mean-spirited childishness across the internet? I really have to wonder if some people who post to this site would say something like “Interview the fish” to Ed Reed’s face?

    If his brother committed a crime, fine. At least have some respect for the dude’s family.

    This is without a doubt the single worst post I have ever read here on PFT in my three years here.

    How DARE you tarnish the men and women of our armed forces who served in Iraq and Afghanistan the past eight years as “carrying out genocide”, you piece of $hit?

    Countless thousands of servicemen have come under attack and died in the service of YOUR country, whether you believed in the cause or not, and the overwhelming majority have served this country well and proudly.

    No one is suggesting you ought to be proud of these men and women, or even grateful. Without a DOUBT, you should NEVER insult their dedication to YOUR service by painting with such a broad and dirty brush.

    You obviously have never served in the military yourself, though you enjoy all the benefits of a free society -such as the freedom to express your disgusting views – that soldiers like them have died to protect the past 235 years.

    Wow,,,this is a sad commentary, when we cant show any compassion for the loss of a life…and in turn that spews more hatred towards, of all people,those who protect us and those who serve this country so we can live our lives in freedom and prosperity….

    …This aint about being on any soapbox…its about common decency….most of us have it….for those who don’t ,nobody cares about you,and nobody should!

  21. dowatuwant2 says: Jan 9, 2011 10:16 PM

    Although Reed’s brother has committed very unacceptable actions. He is still human. If he was a member of your kin, would you disrespect him then? And do not question the men and women who have served and protected this free country. If it wasn’t for them we could be under a Dictatorship government. Would you really like that? This type of World Wide Web talk is why have all disrespected this Earth. You do not need to give your prayers for this young man. But you shall not give him ugliness for what he has done.
    —————————————————
    If yours aren’t mine are.
    My prayers go out to Ed and his relatives. And to the men and women who serve this country

    Your prayers can’t help Brian Reed now. Once you leave this earth there are no more choices. . .

    Sad he went out this way, but he must have done some pretty terrible things to even contemplate jumping into a freezing cold river.

    Sad to lose a loved one, but again I compare this to Chris Henry Jumping into the back of a moving pickup truck.

    Probably not the best life choices.

  23. dowatuwant2 says: Jan 10, 2011 12:44 AM

    While very true…Your comment^ is very disrespectful to the Reed family. Ed Reed is one of the best safeties in NFL history. The hit that i witnessed on McCluster was spine tingling. But there is no reason to not pray for the family. Though he is in a better place, or the last thing we can think about, still walking this planet. It’s people like you that spit on the things we have. You don’t even recall the media pronouncing him dead. Do you?

  24. myspaceyourface says: Jan 10, 2011 7:39 AM

    Did you hear his own mother? ? ?

    Did you?

    She said, when your number is up your number is up? She wasn’t to heartbroken over it.
