Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather is not considered a suspect in a shooting he was allegedly witness to this offseason, according to Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald.

At one point, two men who were shot on the night in question accused Meriweather of shooting them.  The police believe Meriweather was present at the time.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department says the case is now being “inactivated” but it could be re-opened if more information comes in. Meriweather reportedly declined to tell police what he saw.

    “Meriweather reportedly declined to tell police what he saw.”

    Makes sense, BB HATES cooperating with investigations. It’s the ‘Patriot Way’.

    If they had anything thing on him I am sure they would have considered him a suspect.

    So extremely lame people that feel the need to hate Patriot players still try to make this into something that the police say doesnt exist.

    Its so pathetic it makes me feel sorry for them.

    We really need to change the definition of Hindering Prosecution and Obstruction of Justice to end this “no snitchin” and “snitches get stitches” mentality. He really needs to ask himself if it was his brother, sister, mother, father or grandparents that took a bullet would he snitch? I know first hand that some police can’t be trusted but that is absolutely the wrong mentality to have.
