And this was 6-7 year old football league.
Another fine example of "People Who Never Grew Up."
From the article linked above:
[quote] Derkotch was charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment. He did not immediately return a telephone message left at his home Monday.
A referee who allegedly threw a punch at a man was also arrested on assault charges, but it was not clear if that fight was related to the first altercation, police spokeswoman Lisa Rotolo said.[/quote]
My gosh, sounds like a wholesome place to send your kids for a grand afternoon of healthy sports activity, huh?
All this in the City of Brotherly love.
There are nutty sports parents everywhere.
The word they need is
Now, if only ALL the parents had been packing heat, well, none of this would have happened..
Perhaps it WOULD have been a deterrent... you never know. Had he thought that, he may not have pulled out his gun. Then again, crazy people are crazy and there isn't much you can do about them except institutionalize them. Don't try to use this as an example of why responsible, law abiding people, should not be allowed to pack heat. That's like saying that because some people drink and drive, nobody should be allowed to drive a car. WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY more people are killed by motor vehicle than firearms each year.
Then again, crazy people are crazy and there isn't much you can do about them except institutionalize them.
That sums it up very well. There are some peoplle who simply should not be running around loose.
More parental sports insanity.

Let's ban baseball bats from the game, after all it was used in a manner threatening like the dad with a gun. Can't have responsible adults going around swinging bats. If one nut case does it, they might all do it. This according to the way LL believes.
