According to the story, this foursome has a history of beating up others. Would a little jail time or counseling help these four? 15 years old and already throwing away any chance at a future. If I had done this, my father would have let me sit in jail and think about what I did.

Since it was the school athletic festival there were more than likely someone from the local board of education or police that were invited. Were there not other parents present, possibly the injured students' parents. The fact that they (BOE officials) witnessed this and only gave him a 10 percent cut in pay is absurd. What, did the injury to his vertebrate cause a 10% reduction in movement. Teachers can be canned for DUI but not for abusing a student in front of other students and teachers. What a joke.

At the moment, it is our understanding that he did not do anything wrong - Rakuten Eagles public relations director Yoshiki Sato .
We received a report it was a domestic fight which escalated, Eagles president Yozo Tachibana told Japanese media. Unless there is any more big surprises, we intend to go ahead as planned with his contract.
Really?!? So that is the company line. What about the visible injuries she sustained? So let me get this straight, it's OK to beat your wife, tell her you want to kill her and then act like nothing happened. I'm sure that the Eagles are more concerned with filling seats than with more important issues, like supporting the victims of domestic violence. Just last month NFL player, Javon Belcher shot (10 times, yes you read that right, 10 times) and killed his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, before taking his own life, leaving their three month old daughter without a mother. I am sure Nicole Jones was scared: From CBSSports.com: Jones grabbed her by the ankle, pulled her down and put his hands around her neck and said, "I want to kill you, I want to [expletive] kill you."
They should take a stand by terminating his contract and sending a message that domestic violence is not to be tolerated on any level.
