Former NFL Star Corey Fuller's Crusade Against Violence

Corey Fuller, former FSU and NFL star, says he wants community members and leaders to join him in a fight against senseless violence. This comes after the April 23rd shooting of Reshard Morrell, 15, at a party held at the Elks Lodge in Tallahassee.

Fuller is now the head football coach at East Gadsden high school and says it saddens him to think of young lives cut short.

Fuller says Morrell's killing hit too close to home, bringing back memories of his 18-year-old brother who was gunned down in similar fashion back in 1992.

"There's nothing to be ashamed about if you have any information that leads to someone being arrested for a crime they committed with a heinous act to hurt someone with no justified reason. If you tell, you are not a snitch. What you're doing is trying to protect and live in a safe environment," said Fuller.

Fuller says he has placed calls to several leaders in Leon County and welcomes anyone who wants to join him in the crusade against violence.

    To Jimmy, Puzzled and Seriously, I know Corey personally. How in the world could you be a convicted felon and work in the school system? Corey is doing a great job working at the school and he is doing something that you all have failed to do. That is stand up to theses people who are taking the lives of innocent people/ kids. How could you all have the courage to say something like that? Corey went to court and was judged by a jury and found not GUILTY. How can you pay the judge and the jury is the one deleberating on the verdict. Lets all have some sense, you have a person who is well known who decided to take a stand. How will the kids ever improve if the adults don't move forward. Instead of throwing rocks, try lending a hand and help out with this. It will take the entire community to make this happen. Corey has taken the first step for us now lets join in and help.

    Congrats Corey. Thank God for you. And when can I sign up. It's time for a change. And to all of you who are bringing up things in Corey's past, I say get a life. Because everyone deserves a second chance and its hard to lead people somewhere you haven't been. Its through our test and struggles that we learn life and can share with others. And before you point the finger at somewhere else LOOK AT YOURSELF. Because you have made bad decisions. But there are two type of people: the caught & the uncaught. And what are you doing to help the community besides being negative. Judge your own life before judging someone else. And if the law dropped the charges you should let it go too. Anyways, Corey, I look forward to working you to make this a better community.

    Great thought Fuller... for all of you who are bringing up this mans past, needs to worry about correcting there own life. thats whats wrong with the world today, people always want to remember the bad in others even if it was 50yrs ago. I'm sure most of you that are so quick to judge someone has a closet full of bad things you have did but you were lucky enough that you just didnt get caught..Mr. Fuller is trying to be positive and is making a diffrence in young kids lives as a football coach. Instead of passing judgements on someone's past, use that same energy to make a diffrence in the community.

    He's only doing it now so he can get some notoriety as his fame has come and gone. Plus, I'm sure there's a tax break in it for him too.

    Sometimes people will try to do things for attention, because if you all look at Corey's record, he was dealing drugs in his house and illegal gambling, good thing he got busted before someone got killed at his house. He had enough money to pay the lawyers and judges and got the charges dropped against him. Corey, clean up around your own front door before you try to clean up around someone else's. It's a good thing to try to combat violence, especially amongst our young kids, but you need to realize that you are still living a double standard life. When you stop dealing drugs, then you will have my support.

    I do commend you Mr. Fuller for atleast trying...however, you have a bit of a criminal record yourself. How are kids supposed to look up to someone who is begining a "Crusade Against Violence" yet has been convicted of Dom. Battery and charged with 3 Felonies? "Do as I say, not as I do" comes to mind...good luck with that.
