    Hockey Coach Trips Player Sparks Outrage

    Unbelievable that a coach would do this:



    Shocking footage of a hockey coach tripping a 13-year-old player after a game Saturday afternoon, leaving the boy with a broken wrist, has sparked outrage in the minor hockey community.


    “I don’t ever want to see that coach on a bench behind kids ever again,” said Richmond Steel team manager Tammy Hohlweg of the man coaching the Hornets, who won Saturday’s game 5-4. “It’s just horrible that a coach would go after a child like that and what’s even more horrible is that team won.


    “We were the losing team and that guy still went after our kid.”
    The footage, shot by a parent of a Steel player, shows the two teams preparing to shake hands following the game at UBC’s Thunderbird Arena. The coach, wearing a black jacket and beige pants, can be seen moving down the line before sticking out his right foot.

    Well, does this 13-player have the right to put his skates whereever he wants on the coach's body now? Hope the skates are a bit rusty then

    But seriously, what kind of idiot does that?

    According to RCMP Sgt. Paulena Gidda, the coach, who has not been identified by police, was arrested Saturday but released.
    “Charges will be forwarded at a later date, pending the results of the investigation,” Gidda said.


    Hohlweg said the boy’s family is keeping things low-key and the boy is now wearing a cast for his broken wrist.

    I wonder what investigation they are talking about? It's all there in the video...

    I'd hope at least a count of assault.

    About a year ago an amateur football player kicked an elderly guy (who was watching the game) in the stomach here. That guy did never recover and died of his injuries. 20 years in jail should be what we are looking for. Such idiots have no place in society.

    I wonder why it takes so long to hand out the punishment?

    Over a year ago it's been since the Vancouver riots, and all the punishments are still not all handed out.

    Political point scoring. The justice system becomes increasingly politicised. In good and bad ways. If the powers that be had any interest in addressing the problems, they would actually make an effort.
