I was reviewing the arrest reports on Fetchyournews, appears they are selective a little possibly on who they show and report on, why would that be. It could possibly be an oversight but I am a little suspicious of ommitting some arrests! Has anyone else seen this?

I just looked at both reports and they seem identical to me except that the FYN report is missing all of the arrests on March 23rd. I doubt that that was deliberate, but why don't you call and ask them?

That is the exact date I was referring to! That was also the same day of an interest, I don't look at it on regular basis but there was a albeit small interest on that particular day I was trying to confirm on a specific person. Looks like could be honest mistake
Just ask me

I reviewed the arrest reports too- saw someone else's picture missing - I called them and they are posting anything previously missed - sometimes it happens I guess

So I'm not the only one, who peruses the arrests page for fun?

Quite entertaining.

What I noticed is that they post them once a week. They sometimes skip the day in between the last posting. I was looking for a certain date and of course it was they day they missed. I don't think they realize they are doing it.

I seriously hope that if I'm ever arrested, I at least look my best.

Some of these people look like they just rolled out of bed.

What's funny to me is when they smile real big like they are taking a family picture or something.

Was that asked of me, Not a fan?

I don't know, there are a few!
But now that I found myself looking a second time, I'm wondering what 'terroristic threats' could mean.

Now I want the details. Some clean cut looking older man, was arrested for terroristic threats.

No, he didn't look the type and yes, I profile.

Whoa! Not a fan, are you talking about the man I was describing???

He sure doesn't 'look' like someone who should be arrested for anything. Dang.

And again yes, to anyone who would call me a profiler....I profile :)

Well he is one of the biggest problems with GHS Baseball and sports in general ! He got 10,000% of what he derserved! My hope is the other Daddies take notice ! Let your kids talent earn his position and quit trying to make yourself feel powerful by threatening coaches wether it be physical or employment .

CONGRATULATIONS to Baseball Coach who had the BALLS to put a start to stop the BS! Hope the other Coaches take note!

It appears you are all talking about the same individual as he was the only listed for "terroristic threats" on the site.

Not knowing all the nitty gritty details so will not pretend to and will only provide what I now to factually true, knowing that would be strange for this website!

Parent (President of Dugout Club) did not like the way his child was not getting to play (not sure on this one but his child is either Freshman or Sophomore) and he threatened bodily injury to Coach in text message and phone call.

Total class act! I too want to thank the Coach for standing up to this very common practice within especially the baseball program!

heeheeheee

Ok. Since we don't know if this is factually true or not, I will comment on the possibility.
The possibility of "a" parent acting in such a manner at their kids sports games.

My comment is this~~~~ Feasible, Believable & Expectable.
The last 20 years has shown a downward spiral in parents.
I've known kids who've asked their parents to NOT come to their games. For the reason that their parents are too darn embarrassing. I cannot imagine the humiliation.

Heck, kids of a certain age, don't even want to be seen with their parents, let alone have them screaming and swearing in public.
If my parents behaved like that, I would have left home.
What a shame.

EgoBrain,

I know the act to be factual just not the exact details of what was actually said or text. I agree that the way some parents act at a game is disgusting.

It is acts like these though that are even more repulsive in threatening physical harm to even some that have threatened in the past to make sure some specific coaches get fired, because of people they know on the current BOE or past BOE.

And for some reason Baseball here is the absolute worst program for this. It would not hurt 90% of the folks in this County if they just shutdown the program! But again that is taking it out on the kids as opposed to the parent.

I suppose we'll know how serious the threat was, sooner or later.

I am guessing, if it was "Ima gonna punch you in the nose" threat, then his sentence (or whatever) will be lighter than....

"Ima gonna ____ you, sucka."

Dang. Parents.
