"Parents, Have Some Guts!"

That's what the Boston Herald's Joe Gwinnell says about this story from Westboro where some angry dad beat up at 10-year-old at a hockey game, while other adults just stood around and watched.

“No one did anything to prevent this. That was very disturbing," said Westboro Police Chief Alan Gordon, and he's right.

Sure, it's easy to say "Why should I jump on the guy? I might get hurt. Let the cops do it." But who's going to jump on the next guy who's beating up YOUR kid?

Folks, we've got to grow some gonads here. What are we--Europeans?

Because this is the EU/UN theory of the proper use of force brought to a local hockey game. The UN sees a bully (Darfur, Iraq, Serbia) beating the crap out of somebody, and then stands around saying "Gee, where are the cops? Why aren't they doing something about this? I think we'll have a meeting."

Of course, if the cops are the US, the UN weasels will then start explaining why the bully wasn't so bad anyway and he probably wouldn't have kicked the little kid if George Bush hadn't made him.
