I guess you saw the story last week about JJ Redick’s bizarre encounter with a New York City courtesy car driver who had some sort of cage in the back of his vehicle. Redick explained what happened on his podcast and Phil wrote about it here.
The long and short of it is that JJ thought a human being might have been inside the cage, but he wasn’t sure. He took a LOT of heat from random folks online because they don’t think he did enough to address a problem that they thought could have been serious – human trafficking, child abduction, something along those lines. Redick was with his wife and sister-in-law at the time and asked the driver to pull over. They got into a taxi instead.
He responded on Friday to people who were criticizing him for not getting a picture of the driver and/or calling the police immediately:
Redick’s Twitter account no longer exists, so I’d assume he just had enough of dealing with the people in his mentions.
As for whether he did the right thing or not, I don’t know.
