A Lie Can’t Stand

From a San Francisco paper a couple days ago:

A season marred by run-ins with authorities came to a crashing end Wednesday for Ray McDonald when the 49ers axed the defensive lineman after San Jose police said they are investigating the 30-year-old for an alleged sexual assault.

At this point a black football player getting into trouble isn’t news. It’s not even dog-bites-man; more like dog barks. But I thought this was funny:

[H]is mother, LaBrina McDonald said, “There is no truth to this at all.”

She added, “A lie can’t stand. The truth always comes out. Ray has taken good precautionary measures with how he handles himself.”

“Good precautionary measures.” Ah, a mother’s love. Considering that he’s predisposed to thuggery, he’s basically a good son.
