According to Springfield, Mass. news network WWLP, 34-year-old Timothy Forbes was charged with mayhem, assault and batter and disorderly conduct on Monday in Springfield District Court after turning himself in to police. The charges follow Forbes’ attack on an unnamed fellow middle school basketball coach at Springfield (Mass.) Holy Name School following his Springfield Heat’s loss to the Sprinfield Migs in the Springfield Catholic Youth Organization middle school basketball finals.
I am including this because this happened to coaches of two CATHOLIC schools.
I am really shocked and am beyond words. May God have mercy on our souls.:eek:
I would like to ask------what is the “acceptance” process for coaches in Catholic schools nowadays?:rolleyes:
Also-----what does this say about our nation and what we are passing to our children moral and spirituality-wise?
If I had been the prinicpal of that coach’s school charged with instilling Catholic Christian morals into our youth, I would have seriously been ashamed and felt like I had failed to live up to my mission as a Catholic Educator.
Sorry if I seem so “outraged,” but I’m sorry----that is the way I feel.
Through the prayers of the Mother of God, have mercy on us and save us.
