"Itís simple," Lewis said when Sharpe asked him what he would say to the families.
"God has never made a mistake. Thatís just who He is, you see. And if our system Ė itís the sad thing about our system Ė if our system took the time to really investigate what happened 13 years ago, maybe they would have got to the bottom line truth. But the saddest thing ever was that a man looked me in my face and told me, ĎWe know you didnít do this, but youíre going down for it anyway.í To the family, if you knew, if you really knew the way God works, he donít use people who commits anything like that for His glory. No way. Itís the total opposite."
If Sharpe asked any foll0w-up questions about what Lewis did know about what happened, or who told him he was "going down for it," they weren't shown. The next question was Sharpe asking about a financial settlement Lewis reached with the families.
"He was involved in a double murder and Iím not so sure he gave us all the answers we were looking for," Esiason said. "He knows what went on there. He can obviously just come out and say it. He doesnít want to say it. He paid off the families Ė I get all that, thatís fine. But that doesnít take away from who he is as a football player. I appreciate you going down there and asking him that direct question. I'm not so sure I buy the answer."
