Delonte Case: We don’t know, what we don’t know

With still no answers forthcoming in the Delonte West arrest as to what he is currently using to transport his guitar why he was racing down the freeway on a three-wheeled motorcycle strapped up like Rambo, speculation is abuzz.  Bloggers to blame for that?  Not necessarily.  His father said there was someone coming for him.  Others assume he stopped taking ‘medication’.  But what is it your mother always said about people who assume?
