Give credit where credit is due. I believe in that principle. The Detroit Pistons featuring Ron Artest have in no small way contributed to the Miami v FIU game incident, and the many other cases since their ruckus two years ago. But that’s the small-time now. Rioting on the field? No problem. Now its guns. And where else but Philadelphia at a football game for 6 and 7 year olds. On Sunday morning.
Gee honey, lets go see the kids’ football game today. Pack a lunch, and don’t forget the bullet-proof vests.
What ever happened to zero tolerance? You know, where an honor student would be expelled for having an Excedrin in her locker. Given that, these idiots that carry on in the stands and start fights should go directly to jail for disturbing the peace if for nothing else. But a weapon? By a kid or a parent? Go to jail.
Schools everywhere need to get a grip on this because, remember, they are the ones setting the example. So far I haven’t seen any good ones.
There is even group called the Citizenship Through Sports Alliance that gives grades based on parent’s behavior. They give Philly a D. I wonder if you get an F for pulling a gun?
