Re: Coach jailed for beaning autistic player
Anything more than about 3 days in jail is a complete waste of resources. Prisons are already overcrowded as it is, I'd rather have those spots used for actual criminals - you know, murderers, robbers, rapists, etc. - as opposed to just knuckleheads. This isn't to condone what the guy did, he's a slimeball and should be punished. Give him a whole bunch of community service, something that's actually useful, and ban him from coaching kid's sports in the future. But tossing him in jail is just overkill.
