Hey kids, hope everyone is getting ready to head out to the rinks this weekend and take in some games. If you happen to be going to a junior game, how about taking a friend who hasn’t been to one?! Growing the game comes from exposing new people to it, not just playing it.
As an update though, the sex tape case of Thomas Carey and Brandon Smith is pretty much over now. Both these guys started serving their jail time on Tuesday and will have completed it by the time they are formally sentenced in January.
Along with the jail time though, both got TEN YEARS probation! Ten years is a long time kids. Not too many people get that long of a rope to hang themselves. Seriously, ten years for these boys to stay completely out of trouble. One hiccup and boom, back comes the threat of the potential for more jail time.
Not that ten years is forever or anything, but for “first offenders” its not what most people would expect. Its almost like someone thinks these kids cant go ten years without screwing up. But hey, they have that chance now.
I wonder how long it will take the girl involved to get rid of the feeling of humiliation and embarrassment these public proceedings have put on her? Ten years? A lifetime? Who knows, and who cares as long as the boys don’t have to register as sex offenders, right defense attorneys?
Oh yeah, and for all you douche bag assholes out there who have a problem with my opinion on this case, I hope you never have to explain your thoughts to your own daughters some day. Its called respecting women you scumbags. It shouldn’t matter if the offenders are hockey players or not.
For those that said I didn’t know the whole story, what else do I need to know? They plead guilty! Which means they did it and they admitted to it in court. Now what else do you need to know? Yeah, that’s what I thought, you don’t need to know anything else because you knew nothing to begin with.
