    From what I heard on the video report, they found 2-1/2 ounces & that was on the guy they hauled out.

    That hardly warrants a raid of that magnitude. They waited until he was at practice & then busted down the door. IMO they were either hoping to find a lot more drugs or a pooh-load of guns.

    Keep in mind these were not guns he was collecting in cases, locked & stowed away, these guns were out in the open & fully loaded.

    Why if you are on probation for gun iolations, do you have fully loaded seli/automatic assault rifles lying around in the open, fully loaded?

    I still think there is more to this story than we have found out so far!

    Why do you have guns lying in the open fully loaded?
    Because you think you will need to use them, which makes me think that there is more than a couple of ounces of weed going through that place.

    Here in Canada we think most Americans have fully loaded guns laying around

    Re: Tank Johnson of the Bears house raided

    Incident at night club this morning involving Tank being reported on the radio.

    A person that claimed to be the body guard of Tank Johnson was shot to death at a night club at 2:00 am this morning.

    Reports are sketchy if Tank was involved or if he was the target.


    Leads to more speculation that there is more going on here.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Police: Johnson was at club during fatal shootingAssociated Press


    CHICAGO -- Troubled Chicago Bears nose tackle Tank Johnson was at a nightclub early Saturday morning when a man who called himself the player's bodyguard was shot to death, authorities said.





    Johnson

    The shooting occurred about 12 hours after Johnson offered a public apology to teammates and family for his third arrest in the past 18 months. Johnson, the Bears' starting nose tackle, will be inactive for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.


    Willie B. Posey, 26, was pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital about 2 a.m. The shooting took place following a fight at Ice Bar, a club in the city's trendy River North neighborhood, said Chicago Police spokeswoman Monique Bond.


    Bond said police did not know whether Johnson was involved in the fight or the shooting.


    "He was at the bar," Bond said. There was "no information to link him to anything that occurred at the bar at this point in the investigation."


    The Bears issued a statement Saturday saying the team was aware of the shooting, but didn't mention Johnson by name.


    "We are currently gathering information to learn more about the situation," the statement said.


    Johnson and Posey were arrested earlier this week following a raid at Johnson's home.


    Posey was arrested Thursday on a count of felony cannabis possession. He was released after posting the $10,000 bond set by a Lake County Circuit Court judge and had been scheduled to return to court Dec. 21.


    Johnson was not at home during the search, but later turned himself in and was arrested on misdemeanor weapons charges because six unregistered firearms were found at his residence, police said. He was released after posting 10 percent of his $1,000 bond.


    Two of the weapons seized from Johnson's home were assault-style rifles, an AR-15 and a .223 caliber, said Gurnee Police Chief Robert Jones. Three were powerful handguns -- a .44 Magnum, a .50 caliber, and a .45 caliber -- and one was a .308 Winchester hunting rifle, Jones said.


    Johnson practiced Friday and afterward offered a public apology. He is scheduled for a court appearance Jan. 9, which would be several days before the NFC North champion Bears play their first postseason game.


    In November 2005, Johnson was sentenced to 18 months probation and 40 hours community service after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge stemming from an arrest in which a nightclub valet reported seeing Johnson with a handgun in his sport utility vehicle.


    Johnson also was arrested last February after a confrontation outside a Chicago nightclub, but the charges were dropped after the police officer he allegedly scuffled with decided not to pursue the case.


    Posey said in court Friday he was Johnson's bodyguard, the Chicago Tribune and (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald reported on the newspapers' Web sites. Gurnee police could not confirm Posey's relationship to Johnson.

    [size=13pt]Bears DT Johnson suspended for 1 game after 3rd arrest[/size]

    CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Bears suspended defensive tackle Tank Johnson for one game Tuesday, almost a week after he was arrested on misdemeanor weapons charges.

    The day after Johnson was arrested, his third arrest since the Bears drafted him in 2004, he was at a night club when his friend was shot to death.


    General manager Jerry Angelo said Johnson was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team and will not play Sunday against Detroit.


    ``I don't believe the team has to tell me it's my last chance, I know the opportunity that I have in front of me and it's great, it's immense and to squander that opportunity would be a tragedy at this point and that's not gonna happen,' Johnson said at a news conference at the Bears' practice facility in Lake Forest.

    Angelo said the organization felt it was not the right decision to cut Johnson.

    ``He crossed the line and we acted on that,' Angelo said.

    He said Johnson would undergo counseling.

    ``We feel he has taken active steps we feel are good,' Angelo said.

    Johnson was arrested after a Thursday raid on his home in north suburban Gurnee in which police found six unregistered firearms.

    A day later, Angelo had issued a warning to Johnson and the player publicly apologized. That night, he went to Ice Bar in Chicago's River North area with his friend and bodyguard Willie B. Posey, who was shot to death.
