ok this is off the subject... BUT
oh yes his past is everyone's business when he is dealing with children...
He has no sordid or criminal past that has anything to do with children... So no, it is still nobody's business. How many people walk around worrying about the negative influence of the outside world on their children all the while they are exposing their children to equally damaging behavior in their own homes or families? To many. It's a "glass houses" judgement thing again. The people that know, love, and respect Kirk see him for the good that he has exhibited in the loving care he gives his children and the terrific community volunteer he has been.

Since I am not a prosecuting attorney or a defense attorney, I have no idea what the facts behind Kirk's past are....nor do I care and yes, he does work with my child.

There are 2 sides to every story and the 3rd side is the actual facts. I have yet to see any documented "facts" be listed. It is a bunch of mean, finger pointing.

The great thing about being a parent is that you have options. If you do not want your children on the team, pull them off. It is really that simple.

There are still plenty of parents who will proudly allow their child on the team.

Maybe a better option is to actually stay at the practice instead of dropping and running off for time alone. This way, you can observe the great coaching skills and know that your child is safe.

You are absolutely correct.I will stand behind kirk totally.If other parents would stay they too would see what kind of man kirk is and that thier child is SAFE.Kirk is no threat to anyone.Again he is not the accused so please everyone leave him alone.

His past is he shot and killed his unarmed father, Michael Kontir. He spent time in prison and a psych facility. That whole Kontir family has screws loose. Just a bad lot of people all of them.

Oh yeah, it is all true. Happened back in 1987. Shot his unarmed father in the head in his house then hid his body in the cellar for over a week. He reported him "missing" until his brother found him decaying in the cellar!!! Look it up folks. Like I said the whole Kontir family is a bad lot including all Kontir siblings!! What a mess. That is just a part of the Kontir messy saga.
Ok How Can I look it up, Got a web Site or A news paper article, or are you just blowing smoke.

Not to mention multiple times money has disappeared during sports events (at conecssion stands-how ironic, right?) and her neighborhood "friends" homes. Debbie's name is all over it and she would be the one to always place blame on other people, including innocent children. She needs serious help!

I didn't even finish reading all these blogs, but there are alot of naive people out there! I worked with Debbie and saw first hand her slick ways. Single moms beng stolen from! She didn't even need the money. Kirk, boo hoo. She worked part-time almost minimum wage. Are you trying to tell me that he never noticed the over $1600 worth stuff she came home with? He had to have known! And to those who think his past doesn't matter and we should all forgive, I'm sure you wouldn't be so forgiving if it was your loved one he stabbed or shot. They are both very unstable people and child services should get involved.

Exactly what I'm talking about!!! I mean come on...your wife comes home with $1600+ worth of new stuff in a couple of weeks and you the husband dont think something is suspicious?? Come on give me a break. In these hard economic times we know how much we can and can not spend, right? So if all of the sudden that much new stuff appears I'm asking questions. Yeah Debbie Kontir is a thief and her husband is a convicted murderer. The other members of the Kontir family are a drain on society as well.
Well, my ex racked up 30,000 in credit card debt in about 2 years and I had no idea until he was gone and the credit card companies started calling. When I asked him what he spent 30k on, he said, "life".

Normally, you'd be right on, but let me tell you why even a picture won't work.
On the back of ALL of my credit cards, on the signature panel, in big, black, Sharpie written letters, is written "ASK FOR ID"
You would be baffled and amazed as to how many people even look at the card. It's even crazier when they turn the card over, flip it back and hand it to me. You'd love the dirty looks that I get when I say, "Are 3 words too much for you to comprehend?"
Nobody cares about credit card security anymore until they get hit, period.
I never signed the back of my card. The cashiers look at the back and hand the card back to me and proceed with my transaction.
uhhuh

My son's ex girlfriend did the same thing to my son. Also opened credit cards in his name via the internet. He never knew what she did until she was long gone and the companies started sending late notices and started calling him. She also forged his signature to have her nails done among other things. A thief is a thief and hopefully they'll all get what's coming to them.

Fortunately for me the cards were only in his name.

I will keep it short. You can say whatever you want about Debbie, she messed up and will most likely do jail time but running your f**king sucks about her husband is just bad manners and that can get you in trouble. Not only does it show how ignorant to the information you are but it continues to harm the truly innocents ones, the children. All you fat nasty fathers writing in, get on the treadmill and let go of the beer cans and your wives might stop daydreaming about other men. As for you fat, nasty piglike women, drop the HoHos, start exercising, stop embarrassing your kids by looking the way you do at their sporting events and keep your nose out of other peoples business.
Now that I have got your attention, Kirk is really good with kids and not just his own kids. Kids take to him and he enjoys spending time helping them in sports.
Basically, on a pyschologically standpoint, most of the negative statements probably come from insecure fat, beer swizzling, miss the ole highschool days auto mechanics. Spend less time watching football on tv and spend it throwing a football with your kids. Drop the beergut and make your wife find you sexy again instead of the way she looks at you now. You women who wrote in, man I could go on for days about your profiles. Lets see, well you always say "You dont have two kids, or three kids etc. You don't know how hard it is to raise kids. Haha, like nobody in the WHOLE world has never had to raise any kids. Oh, yeah the little Johnny was an accident excuse, haha you really are funny with that one, like you dont know what makes babies or how babies are made and how to prevent yourself from getting pregnant. Oh, every since my last kid I got all the extra baby fat and blah, blah, blah, push back from the table fatties, get out and exercise, stop using oh, having kids as an excuse for being 200+ pounds. Brush your teeth, gargle, comb your hair, loose weight, exercise, eat right, spend time with your kids and stop watching Opera and shut the idiot box off. Getting involved with your kids does not mean all of a sudden writing crappy comments on the internet about someone. Look in the mirror first. If you dress and act like white trash guess what, you are white trash. Oh, by the way, I forwarded all your blogs to my co-workers and they are for good reading and lots of laughs when we get done profiling all of you.

Well two things I must bring up. I am glad someone who stole credit cards is going to rot in jail while the drug dealer down the block who is clearly involved in a number of murders is running free doing what he please. The only true victim is the credit card company, and quite frankly, they get what they deserve. Giving people credit cards knowing full well 99% of the money will never be paid back.

Secondly, being a current employee of the Target Corp, we are encouraged (verbally of course) not to question anyone paying with a credit card unless a code comes up to review the purchase. All that matters to the management here is that he gets his sales figures so he can get is bonus. The theory is, Target will get paid more from their insurance than they would have stopping the purchase. So next time you spend your money in that store, just keep in mind, you are just a sales figure to the store. I won't even get into how poor the employee's are treated.
