Thank goodness this is over. The Van Dusen family should be ashamed of themselves for dragging this on as far as they did. And their little p*sser of a son should have his butt kicked for his behavior. I guess the apple doesn't fall from the tree afterall!

Thank the Lord, the "hockey dad" is free from this insanity the offender's family has put him through.

All that 10-year-old had to do... was not shoot pucks at this man and his kid. He chose to shoot those pucks, though, and got what was coming, and richly deserving of same.

When I was his age, ANY responsible adult was within the right to grab me by the shirtcollar if I did anything remotely close to this. Today, we call it child abuse. WHAT?!?!

Iím 64, so it was a long time ago, but back when I was in high school.
I always had long hair, even back in the early 1960. The coach in my school didnít like it, so one day after Jim, in front of 25 other kids he grabbed me at the shoulder along the neck, and squeezed, I just looked at him.
He was waiting for me to cry out in pain, so he squeezed harder, I just looked at him. So then he had other boys hold me while he cut my hair. Not just cut my hair, but cut in only on one side, the other side was still long.
So I went to the office, and said I was going home, they said I canít!! I walked out of school!!
I was expelled for leaving school?
My mother was fighting mad, but did nothing, but I had to get a hair cut. I just let it grow out longer again!

The best part, the school thought he was right to cut my hair????

That little unattended brat should have been kicked out. Poor excuse of a mother, did she even slow the car down before she made him jump!! the other man was playing with his child, he is a good example of a family man

This is old news people. The case was dropped last summer..... can't anyone read?
Turns out it is the kid and his Mother that are the jerks.... also liars and scam artists.
The boy is only ten but has alredy been in trouble numerous times in school and activities due to his attitude and mouth.
