For the record this went above and beyond calling someone names.
Meyer-Crothers is the young man who at an Ohio junior high school in 2016 was given a lollipop that Miller and another boy, Hunter R McKee, rubbed in a urinal. The boy wanted to be friends with Miller and McKie, so he accepted the candy and had to be tested for hepatitis, HIV and STDs, according to a police report. The abuse didn’t end there. For years he was the target of their taunts, which included racial slurs. At
Its a bit more complicated than name calling.
Wiping a push pop in a urinal and forcing a kid with downs syndrome to eat it, while being on video punching and kicking him and knowing that was just one incident he was caught for is sociopath territory. Apparently this abuse went on for years before intervention.
I went to a high school of 1000 and I can think of 3 kids who would pick on someone with the mental abilities of a 10 year old in such a fashion. All 3 are in jail
For the Coyotes, the "PR move" was signing on to the Hockey Diversity Alliance. It was, from what we can see, a meaningless gesture where they can virtue signal in all the right ways. Where they failed was when they turned right around drafted a kid who spent years abusing and racially denigrating a mentally handicapped black kid.

I absolutely HATE political talk on this board. In this case, it IS hockey related so i am going to make an exception and say my piece.
I don't like woke culture myself because I see lots of good people accused of stuff and things taken out of context ruining people for little to no reason or a mere accusation. If someone made a family guy style joke on twitter 15 years ago and gets condemned for it with 2020 youth eyes because family guy is considered extr
Ummm. Absolutely workplaces can implement their own form of justice on employees.
Otherwise background checks after interviews and codes of conduct employees are forced to sign now would be meaningless.
This guy had a record. They assumed they knew how bad it was based on their info. The mother of the kid he bullied and tormented has decided to very vocally make further details of the tormenting of a boy with down syndrome known since the jerk never apologized and by all
