BlackMediaNewsReport - We finally have obtained hospital photos of the Atlanta baseball coach who was charged in the 2009 rape of a 9 year old boy. The coach visited the home of the child to encourage him to join the local team. The child refused to join. When the coach left, the child repeatedly told his mother how he did not feel comfortable with the man.
Two weeks later, the coachreturned to the house with food, balloons, and a PlayStation. The child was very excited. Minutes later he joined the team. Four days afterward, the coach came back to the home. He asked the mother if he could give the child private lessons on catching the ball. She agreed.
On June 18th, 2009 Atlanta Court documents indicate that the mother heard her son sobbing. She ran into his bedroom and saw the baseball coach having anal sex with the 9 year old. The mother then ran to the kitchen and grabbed a large “turkey carving” knife, and assaulted the coach.
The question we ask our readers is:
” She should have called the police instead
of attempting to murder the suspect? ”
The police have charged the mother with attempted murder. If convicted she will serve no less than 15 years in state prison under Georgia state laws.
as a victim of sexual assault via father figure, I support this woman’s response. she should get a medal not a trial.
I bet that boy knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that someone is in his corner and looking out for him. What I wouldn’t give for that kind of visceral support and protection.
