but to survive 14 shots, the man is a warrior

I wish him all the luck in the world

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars offensive tackle Richard Collier, who was shot earlier this month, is paralyzed below the waist and has had his left leg amputated, his doctors said Monday.

They said Collier, who had 14 bullet wounds, is now in stable condition after being previously listed in critical condition.

OMG - that is just awful news. I send Rich Collier my prayers and good vibes that he will survive this tragedy and live a long life. I hope they caught the perps and nail them to the wall.

Just nice to see he survived because 14 gun shots is pretty crazy. An Angel touched him that day.

Damn shame.

My prayers to him and his family. An angel was definitely with him that day for him to survive all of those gunshot wounds.

How do you know it was his fault? Innocent people get victimized all the time.
