Yahoo Sports- As reported by The Oregonian, Portland TV network KATU and a variety of other Oregon outlets, the father of a boys basketball player for Vancouver (Wash.) Skyview High was involved in an altercation with fans of his son’s opponent while leaving Camas (Wash.) High. Apparently spurred by that incident, the undisclosed parent in question took to Facebook to air his grievances against the Washington high school. More specifically, this is what he wrote on the social media site: “Camas fans!!!!! Worst in the league!!!!! I hope someone shoots up their school real soon!!!!!!!!” Though the man later added a second message intended to dispel concern about his initial post, Camas police quickly launched an investigation into the comment. No charges have been filed against the parent as of yet, but he has already been handed a no-trespass warning by the Camas School District, effectively banning him from stepping foot on any school property in the area again.
There’s a few ways you can approach things when it comes to outdoing your crosstown rivals. Obviously the best way to do it is to win on the court and have that be the end of it, but when all the white kids live on one side of town and have to match up against the school named after a leader in the civil rights movement, victory isn’t always in the realm of possibility. When that’s the case, there’s other ways to make yourself think you have the advantage, like having the shitheads of each respective school fight each other in the parking lot, or my personal favorite, being from the richer town. But by wishing for a massacre at another school you’re just asking for trouble. It’s not just the short term negative publicity you’re going to attract by wishing probably the worst thing possible on another school in a country where gun violence is currently the hot button issue; it’s the potential long term complications you’re looking at if it actually comes true. By wishing for a school shooting you’re just asking for a emotionally riveting comeback story that ends with a stunning victory over the Cobra Kai of high schools on the other side of 8 Mile. Just start a fight with another alcoholic dad like a normal person and call it a night.
PS- If he’s really serious about this he should just move to Chicago and pick a random high school team to root against. Based on the history there it should only be a matter of time.
