So she reports it to the police, then chases the guy down with a bat and beats the crap out of him while he pleads for her to stop.

She really should be prosecuted, as I would be if I found out someone molested my daughter.

The flew into a rage

The what?

she began beating him repeatedly with the bat, causing as he begged for her to stop.

Causing what?

Charged with aggravated assault, Richmond said she is sorry for beating the coach but insists she did it in defence of her children.
'If I don't protect them who will?'


Um, why not just pull your kids out of little league and wait for the police to do their work?

'During the beating he was saying he didn't do it and that he was sorry. If you didn't do it then why are you saying you're sorry? What are you sorry for?'

from the mouth of bat wielding crazed mother
 
2012-08-21 01:19:51 AM
Sorry lady

I feel bad for you, I do. But we live in a nation with laws and you, too, must follow them.

I understand that you were enraged due to his actions, but taking the law into your own hands never works out right. For instance, how many blacks in the US were lynched over a whisper of rape when at the end no rape had occurred and they found out the white female made the story up?

Justice needs to be righteous

cman, we live in a nation of laws, and those laws have to be guarded by women with bats. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. namatad? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Tony Massey, and you curse the little league. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Massey's beating, while tragic, probably saved balls. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that bat, you need me on that bat. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a bat and ball, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.
 
2012-08-21 01:28:35 AM
BTW, she needs to be arrested.

Sometimes you're the bat. Sometimes you're the ball.

A man becomes preeminent, he's expected to have enthusiasms. Enthusiasms, enthusiasms... What are mine? What draws my admiration? What is that which gives me joy? Baseball! A man stands alone at the plate. This is the time for what? For individual achievement. There he stands alone. But in the field, what? Part of a team. Teamwork... Looks, throws, catches, hustles. Part of one big team. Bats himself the live-long day, Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, and so on. If his team don't field... what is he? You follow me? No one. Sunny day, the stands are full of fans. What does he have to say? I'm goin' out there for myself. But... I get nowhere unless the team wins.
 
2012-08-21 03:20:23 AM
Did she tell him that there's no crying in baseball?
 
2012-08-21 03:37:25 AM

Well, we know for certain that at least one of the people in this story deserves jail time...

/reserving judgement against the coach until after the accusations are investigated,
 
2012-08-21 05:41:13 AM
10:1 he made the poor, poor little tykes run a few laps for mouthing off and it hurt the poor children's sensibilities so they went home crying to mama with the way to get back at him. I mean, this lady obviously has some anger issues, and I bet the kids knew it.

During the beating he was saying he didn't do it and that he was sorry. If you didn't do it then why are you saying you're sorry? What are you sorry for?

Let's see.....you are beating a man with a baseball bat as hard as you can.....that might be a pretty good reason.
 
2012-08-21 05:41:27 AM
Eh. Can't say I probably wouldn't have done the same if I was in her position.

If you can't believe a couple of kids, who CAN you believe? You go, girl.

2012-08-21 05:45:25 AM
Hmm some of these stories make me wonder if the kids are telling the truth. I suppose I should hope they are lying which would mean they weren't groped. Kids can be easy victims, but then can be vicious little bastards with no understanding of the scope of consequences as well.
If the guy did fark with kids then the law will deal with it. Off chance the guy was just of extremely poor judgment and was checking the kids to make sure they were wearing their cups.

Carl Lee Hailey would be proud.

Maybe she can hire Jake Brigance

kids never lie
 
2012-08-21 05:51:23 AM
Or better yet, let Penance have a go at him. Penance is a character created by furry artist Jim Hardiman. She is a demon who takes the form of a small child to bait child molestors. She then gives them what they deserve by using her mind power to inflict severe mental trauma on them.

I never understood why Jack Nicholson's character was so adamant about "freedom" when he was parking in farking Guantanamo, Cuba.

WTF does he think? That Cubans are going to invade the USA?

Movie was prescient anyway, since watching it after GITMO went full blown made it much more relevant than it was in the early 90s.

She'll be sorry if the boys just made up a story, or if there was a legitimate reason.

Not sure if serious....Kids have been known to lie on occasion. And sometimes they will lie and claim someone else did it, to protect their abuser.

I was thinking about coaching my future step- sons soccer team, but in today's day and age...if you look at someone the wrong way, or you say something you interpreted one way and someone else takes offence, it could ruin your life in somany different ways....it's sad

I was not being serious. What you said, that's what I was playing off of.

Hopefully the state will raise her kids for her, while she serves a lengthy prison sentence. What kind of fool risks her kids' future like that?

But I am quite skeptical of the story, since no legitimate source has published it, and the three sources that I could find all published the same story. No legitimate journalist would publish the name of an accused molester in this manner. The accused wasn't charged. He should sue TV 3 and Lakeshia (WTF ?!?!) for already calling his character into question. I don't care what the crime is, if we live in a system where we are innocent until proven guilty, names should be kept out of the media until after sentencing. It is a simple principle. A DA hasn't even weighed in out this... or a grand jury.... or anyone. How would you like to be publicly labelled a pedo on the basis of two kids statements to their mother?
 
2012-08-21 06:09:27 AM
If he actually did it, and there was conclusive proof apart from small children (who say all sorts of crazy shiat and will agree to literally anything if you prompt them with the right tone), that'd be fine. We don't need child molesters.

...but she didn't have proof or a conviction or anything. Just two kids.

Has anyone found a better, more informative article? Surely something better than mom going, "Did your coach molest you? Did he touch your no-no zone?"

I definitely understand it's extremely difficult to be rational if you think your children have been violated but I've had children also try to tell me things like how they're also dragons or how their dads are the Wiggles or that at night they turn into race cars. Christ. I hope to hell those kids weren't molested but at the same time they damn well better have been if you're going to put a guy in the farking hospital without doing any research first.

She didn't take that man's advice and hide her kids because, you know, they're raping everybody out there.

It's the Daily Mail, people. It's either made up or exaggerated to the point that it might as well be. Haven't you figured out that *all* they do is troll for page clicks?

Good point. That would explain why they listed the guy's name - can't slander the name of somebody who doesn't exist.
 
2012-08-21 06:40:00 AM
I like to consider myself a mostly rational person. If presented with evidence, I objectively research it so that I can develop an informed opinion and take proper actions. That said, having just found out I'm going to be a father, I'd say "fark the bat" and just use my fists.

While the answer is "Too many" if it's more than one....
It was nowhere near the commonplace occurrence you're trying to make it out to have been.

I played center back in the day. That means the back of the quarterback's hand touched me in my no-no place on every play (albeit with a cup). Sometimes the coach would need to take a snap to demonstrate something. So yeah, it's possible for the coach to touch you in your no-no place.

maybe she's telling the truth, maybe she isnt

calling someone a pedophile is the 21st century equivalent of calling an old crone 'a witch!'...... the simple act of accusation drives out any regard for truth or due process.

she has admitted her crime and deserves to be in prison

he needs to have the allegations against him investigated under due process of law
