Pee-Wee Coach Accused Of Shooting Player's Dad For Pulling Son
Pee-Wee Coach Accused Of Shooting Player's Dad For Pulling Son

MONTGOMERY, Ala -- Police are looking for a 20-year-old pee-wee football coach accused of shooting the father of one of his players because the dad pulled his son from the team.

It happened shortly before 11 a.m. Tuesday at a housing project near downtown Montgomery. Lt. Huey Thornton, a Montgomery police spokesman, said Timothy Campbell, 32, was shot in the lower back during the altercation.

Thornton said the unidentified coach apparently was upset that Campbell and his wife pulled their 12-year-old boy from the YMCA-sponsored team as part of a punishment.

1. America's weak gun laws make this almost a folk crime.
YMCA? I guess it was the white "Christian" gun owning thing to do.

3. What in the story
do you base this claim on?
"America's weak gun laws make this almost a folk crime."

2. Sure sounds like a Repiglican to me!
Think about it: resorting to violence because he didn't get his way? That's pure Repiglican phiolosophy.

4. I run a youth sports association, and what I want to know
is: why is a 20 year-old head coaching a pee wee football team?

The most a 20-year old would get is an Assistant Coaching position - more likely just a "qb coach" for "line coach" - to young and untried - no way.

10. The answer might be in the story
the shooting happened at a "housing project near downtown Montgomery".
Sounds like an inner city thing. They may have well taken any volunteer. OTOH- they don't say whether he was the head coach or not.

11. there are several inner city teams in our league
and they all have adult coaches. I don't know what the YMCA criteria is for coaches, maybe it is different.

And you are right - it doesn't say he was the head coach - my bad - but if it was my assocation, I would make darn sure that the fact that he was just an assistant was out there in the media.

5. "A YMCA spokesman said..."
"...the coach was a volunteer and will be banned from pee-wee football." :freak:

9. Wow, a parent actually punishing a kid and not letting them play football
tell you what, MY parents were strict and would have done such a thing to myself or my two brothers if we screwed up real bad.

Nowadays, parents just let things slide.

aybe cause they feel guilty they're both working or
they can't seem to get the role of disciplinarian right or
they're more interested in being "friends" rather than parents or
it's more important for little Johnnie to get that sports scholarship or
my little johnnie doesn't do anything wrong EVER
