Coleman Will Suffer, So Enough Already

September 05, 1993

So, Robin Abcarian is jumping on the bandwagon of disgusted, outraged, lynch-mob reporters who want to crucify Vince Coleman for throwing a firecracker ("Guilty Your Honor--Can I Go Play Now?," Aug. 18).

Yes, he hurt someone. Yes, his actions were foolish. But enough already. He will pay dearly for this through lawsuits and public hate.

Frankly, it is difficult to understand Abcarian's point. The article was written as if Vince Coleman had denied or in some way sought to excuse his conduct when, in fact, he did just the opposite.

It seems to me that Vince Coleman had only two choices--try to evade responsibility or accept it. He chose the latter and although commendation for such an acceptance may not be appropriate, neither is chastisement.
