This is gonna leave a mark.....

as i turned to my paper saturday morning i was greeted with this headline "tee-ball coach charged in assault". of course i just thought that this was a caoch fighting with another coach or an umpire or an enraged parent....etc. you can take your pick most times but this was even worse than that. seems in fayette county (one of the counties surrounding pittsburgh) a tee-ball coach was arraigned on felony charges that he bribed a 7 year old player to throw a baseball at a mentally disabled teammates face to keep the boy out of the game. state police said mark downs jr. , 27, of dunbar, offered his star player $25 to hit an 8 year old autistic child with a baseball because he wanted to win the game. this child was hit in the ear and when he didnt go down the kid then hit him in the groin. when the autistic child told the coach downs suggested he sit out the game. the autistic childs mother confronted the player who threw the ball and he ratted on the coach. the mother said she signed up the child for tee-ball in the hopes that it would help him overcome some of the social stigma he might face in the future. ok, so thats the story. it took me two days to get all this through my head. i can just picture the coach. he probably was some half assed failed athlete in his youth and now he lives vicariously through his children. hes going to make them major league players. this child will never have any memories of playing baseball besides these and now those will be of people trying to hurt him. and i'm sure the star player is killing animals around his house even as we speak. is this how murderers start? what wouls this guy get if they won that would make him do such a thing. did he think if his tee-ball team won that the pirates were going to be calling him up. "wow, mcclenndon is really screwing up, we better call mark downs jr. right away. i understand his tee-ball team just won today". he should never be allowed to coach/teach children in any manner regarding anything ever again. of course maybe in jail he will learn some lessons about how the weak get picked on.

its monday.......what a way to start the week

Human depravity knows no bounds.

I must win this ball game!!!
That I am actually not playing...

He should have taught the autistic kid to lean into the box and take one for the team... especially if the kid could take what the star player could dish and ask for seconds.

Wait, my bad.... it was tee-ball. If you get hit by a "pitch" at tee-ball, you are a moron. I really need to learn how to read betterer.

i thought it was funny as hell at first..but the fuckers in jail will probably rape his ass or something like that to teach him a lesson...

Great find, shoes.

How fucking sad is this guy? What's really bad is that he actually thought about this and created a plan. Lord, couldn't he have just whipped out his dick to prove his "manliness"?

shoes said...

well your assuming an asshole like this has a dick. i'm sure its small and thats why he needs to win at tee-ball.

That is so horrible. Who would do such a thing? Where were the other parents? He should be relieved as a coach. WHat a scumbag.

If I was the autistic kid, I would have hit the coach you know where...Or if I was the mother, I would have done so.

Wow, I'm shocked he had to give that kid $25. Most serial killers in training would have no problem hitting a challenged kid in the nuts for fun. I don't think the little kid cared, it was $25 he wants to buy some fun shit.

Hey man, I just wanted to let you know that our site moved...so you probably want to change your links. we are now "Completley Unrelated to Work" and the URL is: www.wehadnothingtodowithit.blogspot.com

God, I feel like I'm pimping out my site or something. I like pimps.

You are right, if he spends some time in jail, he will learn what it is like to be the weaker one who is picked on. We can only hope.

Damn, now I am all pissed off... I hate some humans....
