Thread Name: BS: Violence in sports.
Subject: RE: BS: Violence in sports.
Ironically, how ever well planned life is... plans fail, either through our own lack of care or someone elses. Life has become cheap... respect minimal for others, not just on the rugby/soccer field... things happen frequently which seem beyond peoples control and people die through anothers action (whether deliberate or not) Each case should be considered carefully to decide what action needs to be taken.... but to my mind.. there is no such thing as an accident... we all use the word with abandon... but someone is always to blame through lack of care..... If someone had died in this manner thirty years ago... what would have happened then??? It would have been dealt with severely....... Everything is being watered down..... offences that I booked people for whilst a cop are now obsolete as the cops have to spend time on 'more important issues'..... The other side of the coin says... who is actually guilty of a crime??? Those who are guilty in our society now are those against whom enough evidence can be found....... if there is not enough evidence.. they walk free... no criminal record..... even for murder/acts of terrorism... etc. I would not condone it as such but we will soon see vigilantes dealing with criminals where others have failed.... it happens to some extent already.. but it will get worse.
