The world of professional sports is a more screwed up place than we may have known.
The events of the last several years have proven as much.
Race riots and the Black Lives Matter movement exposed the corruption of the NFL, the NBA, and other major sports several years ago.
The COVID-19 pandemic, and the subsequent vaccine mandates did even more to bring attention to the tyranny of these leagues.
A bizarre story is now unfolding of an NFL star who claims he was forced into a mental institute and injected with an unknown substance.
Raiders player Chandler Jones claims that he was forced into a mental hospital against his will and injected with an unknown substance.
Jones shared several handwritten notes on X (Twitter), claiming that “a group of 5 to 7” people showed up to his home with an ambulance, injected him with the unknown substance, and then transferred him to a mental hospital where they tried to force more medication upon him.

The New York Post reports on Jones’ claims:
Las Vegas Raiders star pass rusher Chandler Jones has claimed he was taken against his will to a mental health hospital by the Las Vegas fire department last week and “injected” with an unknown substance.
“I was taken in by the Las Vegas fire department last week against my will,” Jones shared in three handwritten notes posted on X, formerly Twitter, with the caption, “First day out but I’m still aligned.”
“I was injected with I don’t know what,” the four-time pro-bowler, who hasn’t played in a game this season, claimed.
Jones said “a group of 5 to 7” showed up at his front door with an ambulance and he was injected with the mystery shot and taken to Southern Hills hospital with “no cell phone or no communication.”
He then says he was transferred to Seven Hills Behavioral Health Hospital where staff allegedly “tried to force” him to take further “meds and injections.”
Jones shared the notes on social media:

Daily Mail sheds more light on this bizarre story:
This place is NOT a place for high profile athletes. My first night I slept on the floor and was not offered a bed.
‘My brothers had to bring me decent meals to eat and clothes. My dad comes and reads me bible verses. Every day that I miss is one million dollars. I’m still confused on what I did wrong. I’m still here. I’m very sane.
‘I workout in my room every day. Even down the hallway at 3am if you ask the staff here.
‘All I know is whoever put me here had bad intentions. I’m to (sic) strong of a person to be mentally broken. For all of my friends that know me, THEY KNOW!!!’.
Jones also shared a picture of a document, with a sub-heading titled ‘patient rights’ that had lines highlighted such as ‘you have the right to refuse treatment and medication’, ‘you have the right to be treated in the least restrictive environment’ and ‘the right to receive an explanation of treatment goals, methods’.
The Raiders put Jones, who plays as a defensive end, on the non-football illness list last week, ruling him out for the team indefinitely.
‘It’s a personal situation and a private matter,’ Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels said at the time. ‘We have dealt with it, and I am not going to talk about it.’
This was the “official story” from the Raiders:
So many Raiders fans log on here and dunk on Josh McDaniels, Dave Ziegler, and Mark Davis every single day—how about some kudos for handling a highly delicate matter with Chandler Jones.

What is actually going on here??
Wow!! who forced him? what was he injected?

I don’t understand how the Chandler Jones situation has lasted this long. He clearly needs immediate help. How has nobody intervened yet? Doesn’t he have a lawyer? It doesn’t make sense to me.

While this is the craziest story I've read so far today, I fear that we will see a lot more medical tyranny in the future. This story is a "private matter" but once whomever put this football star in this place and he spoke publicly, inquiring minds will want more details.
