Criminalizing Abuse Of Officials?
Topic: July 07, 2019, 11:41:16 AM

Is it time to involve the authorities when youth hockey officials experience various levels of abuse? The physical aspect is obvious and should be dealt with accordingly but is verbal abuse from players, coaches and parents likely to be dealt with the same? According to top Atlantic District executive Glenn Hefferan, he thinks so. And he's got the statistics to prove why.

This should work out well. What happens with all of the miserable refs who interperet anything said to them as offensive because they don't agree? Do they call the cops?

Good luck waiting for the District! EVERY official has the right to swear out a private criminal complaint with the local District Attorney's office! This is many times much more of a deterrent than calling the police!

NO-ONE has the right to orally threaten, intimidate, or physically assault another human being, ESPECIALLY a minor! That is a crime, and if a complaint is made, it MUST be investigated!
