This is odd.

There has to be a family-based circumstance surrounding this.

BeerBaron
05-02-2008, 02:58 PM
apparently he got in a fist fight with a trouble making patron at a bar he owns in philly. the guy fled, and harrison gave chase.

some time later, gunfire errupted, this guy was grazed in the hand and some broken glass from a car they shot cut a girls face.

the police went to question him at a car wash and they found a gun, registered to him, in a bucket at the car wash.

apparently the gun matched the one that fired the bullets at teh crime scene

It's with a freaking .50 cal. They found it at his car wash, with 7 shots fired. He owns the weapon. They got a guy who got winged in the shoulder that police are waiting to tab Harrison as the shooter.

They were saying that he was involved in a fight, and that he took out his belgian gun and lit up a car. It is said that one of the guys was grazed by a bullet and that a little girl was injured from falling glass. THESE ARE SERIOUS ACCUSATIONS! In Pennsylvania law, if the owner of the gun in a crime is automatically charged even if he wasnt involved in any activity.

I was gonna make a thread on this, but I saw this one so I'll put my little write up here:



I just heard it on Outside the Lines on ESPN.

There isn't any link on it yet per google, but I'll find something soon.

Harrison was spending time in Philly which is where is family is from. Apparently there was an altercation at an establishment and Harrison got into a fist fight with him. He later then followed him to his car and they exchanged bullets. A bullet supposedly grazed a mans hand, and shattered glass hit a young girl. The gun was later found and per a ballistics test, 7 shots were fired. The gun was legally registered to Harrison and he owns 25 weapons, all legally.

but what really sucks from him is that even if he didnt do it, it was his gun. and under PA state law, if your gun is used in a crime, charges come to you too.

I think if there is proof that Harrison was the shooter, he has to be suspended for a year. It would be a double-standard to do anything but that.

Police then went to a Philadelphia car wash owned by Harrison to question him about the gun. Harrison admitted owning such a weapon, but claimed it never left his suburban Philadelphia home.

However, the source said the gun was discovered in a bucket at the car wash, and tests showed that it had fired seven bullets that matched those found at the scene.

That depends on the powder charge. The DE has more kick than usual because it has a AE round, if this thing used a .50 GI, then the kick is more manageable, along the lines of a .40 SW.

You have to remember, recoil is energy dissapation. And Energy is mass time velocity squared. so if you cut down the muzzle velocity slightly, you drastically reduce the recoil. The .50 AE routinely hits at 1,400 ftlbs. The .50 GI rarely breaks 500. A 9mm NATO hits at over 350.

Then, Joseph Addai will be driving around drunk hitting pedestrians.

Seriously though this is pretty bad. I always though Marvin Harrison was a stand-up guy. There was a trade rumor a while back saying Marvin might go to Cincy and I was thinking..."That would be a standup receiver, he wouldn't get in trouble or complain." Guess I was wrong.......

There were three people injured. The guy Harrison got into a fight with got shot in the hand. However, that guy has already served 10 years for a homocide charge, so I don't think he wants to do anything more than forget this thing happened and avoid going back to prison. The girl got injured by glass shards, and there was a third victim who was shot in the shoulder. The third victim's said that he will testify against Harrison.

In regards to the kickback gun fire discussion. Even if it wasn't that hard. Shooting off a .40 cal 7 times in rapid session doesn't seem smart. You don't even have good to great accuracy shooting a 9mm 7 times in rapid session. If he did blast of his .50 cal 7 times quickly he is dumber than any one could have imagined. **** with a .50 cal chasing someone he probably sprayed some good 60-70 feet of area. Thats too dangerous. It suprised the hell out of me to hear this.

There were three people injured. The guy Harrison got into a fight with got shot in the hand. However, that guy has already served 10 years for a homocide charge, so I don't think he wants to do anything more than forget this thing happened and avoid going back to prison. The girl got injured by glass shards, and there was a third victim who was shot in the shoulder. The third victim's said that he will testify against Harrison.
The Philly officer who was shown on ESPN, at a press conference or whatever it was, noted only the guy with the hand and the girl when asked about there being two guys involved.

In regards to the kickback gun fire discussion. Even if it wasn't that hard. Shooting off a .40 cal 7 times in rapid session doesn't seem smart. You don't even have good to great accuracy shooting a 9mm 7 times in rapid session. If he did blast of his .50 cal 7 times quickly he is dumber than any one could have imagined. **** with a .50 cal chasing someone he probably sprayed some good 60-70 feet of area. Thats too dangerous. It suprised the hell out of me to hear this.

The accuracy depends heavily on his firing stance, if he does the stereotypical one handed sideways idiot thug stance, then you couldn't fire a .38 special with any degree of accuracy. If you've got a solid two handed stance, you can empty a .50 GI with pretty good accuracy. I've put a whole clip from an M-9 into an Ivan at 15 meters. Hitting a car in an urban environment with a .50 GI is cake if you know what you're doing, and given that Marvin Harrison owns 25 liscensed firearms, I've got to assume he's had some training at a range.

I just watched that, the cop said nothing of the sort. Literally the only thing he acknowledged was that Harrison lived in the area, and was spoken to.

ESPN showed more of the presser when they originally aired it, earlier.

I can see Goodell know:
"We are still waiting to hear from Marvin about this but I'm looking into beginning a Marvin Harrison Award for Hardwork and Dedication to Justice and protecting the community in the offseason for his vigilante efforts today. Marvin Harrison is a true American hero."

Everyone assumes cause Marvin acts nice on the field and doesn't celebrate and actually speaks clearly that he can't do these things off the field. Ya never know....

If Harrison did it or not, he will not be as heavily scrutinized as Vick.


I know, and this amuses me.

But Mike Vick hurt dogs, cute little killer pitbulls! He hurt man's best friend instead of man! HE'S EVIL!

Marvin is a nice guy and the other guy had it coming.

What kind of .50 cal handgun has that many rounds?

To fire 7 shots with that kind of gun, someone had to see something. 7 shots would cause a ruckus. Maybe there are some witnesses resulting from the aforementioned ruckus.

Marvin Harrison involved in a conflict? I'm surprised that he didn't just avoid physical contact and go out-of-bounds like he always does.

Most will carry at least that many rounds. And as for how loud, it depends on the round. The fact that it's a .50 cal only tells you the diameter of the round. It doesn't tell you the length or grain of the round. A .50 AE differs greatly from a .50 GI, which differs greatly from a .50 BMG, which differs greatly from a .50 Beowulf.

You can make a .50 cal round that has very little recoil and little noise, relative to other rounds. Given that the pistol is custom made, we really don't know what kind of round it fires, aside from the diameter.

Doesn't surprise me... Everyone knows Marvin Harrison is a dangerous man on the field, makes sense that he's also a dangerous man off it

I'm not inciting Marvin, but if Goodell doesn't suspend him for this he losses all credibility in my eyes.

Thought it is being said its actually a boy not a girl.

A source told the Philadelphia Daily News that a 2-year-old boy suffered a cut under his eye from glass that shattered when an errant bullet hit a car windshield, according to police. Originally it was reported that a young girl had been injured.

This isn't the Colts wide receiver who's been called "a real nice guy" etc by just about everyone on earth.

I can relate, I mean hell I've been in my share of bar fights, but I'd never pulled a gat and tried to shoot someone.

But have you pulled out a .50 caliber cannon?

I've never fired anything above a .308 nothing above that is legal out here. I can tell you that thing makes a nice BOOM, I'd hate to hear a .50 going off.

Oh btw, Gat was a slang term picked up by American soldiers in the vietnam war and has since been adopted through pop culture. It was originally used by British soldiers in the boer war and then by proxy Aussie soldiers.

I'm taking it back.

The confiscated pistol was a FN Five-seveN (as in 5.7mm).

This is also the same caliber that the P90 fires, I'm sure you recognize this puppy from a video game or two.
