We have previously seen parents who appear less mature than their children in responding to sporting events. We would have to add a father of a student with Vancouver (Wash.) Skyview High basketball team who responded to a contentious game with a call for someone to massacre students at Camas (Wash.) High. There are calls for criminal charges and the father, who has not yet been identified, is barred from the school grounds.
Skyview High School beat Camas 44-42. However, that was not enough for the father who went to Facebook to post the following statement: “Camas fans!!!!! Worst in the league!!!!! I hope someone shoots up their school real soon!!!!!!!!”
Parents were understandably a bit peeved at the suggestion of a massacre to address a basketball disagreement. Camas police have launched an investigation.
The man later reportedly sent a message downplaying the comment and, while I find the comment uniquely stupid and reprehensible, I do not believe it should be treated as a criminal matter. What do you think?
