This is definitely not the kind of poster NBA players dream about being on.

Via TMZ, police in Atlanta have issued an official "wanted" poster for Javaris Crittenton who is a suspect in the murder of a 22-year-old women. According to the poster, Crittenton is considered "armed and dangerous." Also, the poster lists "cash reward" as part of helping to locate Crittenton's whereabouts.

The most recent information suggests Crittenton is in Los Angeles, but obviously it's not exactly known where he is. The FBI division in Atlanta issued this release:
Special Agent in Charge (SAC) Brian D. Lamkin, in conjunction with Assistant Director in Charge Steven M. Martinez, Los Angeles FBI, requests the public’s assistance in the following matter:
Javaris Crittenton, age 23, of Fayetteville, Georgia, is wanted by the Atlanta Police Department on murder charges stemming from the August 19, 2011 fatal shooting of 22 year old Julian Jones. On that date, officers responding to a shooting found Ms. Jones with multiple gunshot wounds. She was transported to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead. Witnesses in the matter stated that a dark colored SUV vehicle drove by the location firing an assault type rifle.
Crittenton, a former National Basketball Association (NBA) player, is believed to have traveled to the Los Angeles, California area where he is known to have family and friends. Investigators learned that on August 24th, Crittenton purchased and traveled on a one way airline ticket to Los Angeles.
On Monday, August 29, 2011, the Atlanta Office FBI obtained a federal Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution (UFAP) arrest warrant for Crittenton.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of this individual should contact their local law enforcement agency, the Atlanta FBI Office, tel. (404) 679-9000, or the Los Angeles FBI Office, tel. (310) 477-6565.

So far I have read 3 articles on three different days about Javaris Crittendon and none of them gives any substantial evidence that would incriminate him.  I do know that the police and the judicial system are not fair nor are eihter one of them unbiased so I can understand if someone does not want to be found it's understandable.  Personally I have been stupid enough twice in my life to stand up for what is right only to get financially screwed by the system that couldn't take my freedom but certainly they did find a way to crush me financially.

Is this the new way the National Basket Ball League is going to use mug shots for rookie cards ? If so Javaris Crittenton is their poster child. What is with these folks they think the law does not pertain to them like civilians. The shooting of this woman in a drive by is just Horrendous to say the least. Why do all these athletes need to be carrying firearms to begin with. Look at Plaxico Burris as one. Then there is all the fights and they run away hide their heads in the sand and think there will be nothing happening to them. Do not allow your kids to use athletes as a roll model in any shape or form.
