More on Stinson Evidence

UPDATE: You can now read the court documents HERE, courtesy of the C-J.

The Courier-Journal has filed another story on the prosecution's evidence in the Max Gilpin case, and it is pretty damning stuff. The paper reports witnesses hearing Coach Stinson calling players "cowards" when asking for water. The evidence made available seems to confirm the suspicion that the coach was utterly negligent. Judging by what I have read, Commonwealth Attorney Dave Stengel presided over a thorough investigation that, I believe, shall ultimately convict Jason Stinson. No mention was made of JCPS's pathetic attempt at an investigation.

In related news, the Kentucky House passed HB383 yesterday, the so-called "athlete safety bill", after eliminating the requirement that pools of ice be on site during games or practices during hot weather. The bill only requires the Kentucky Board of Education review and look at revising it's "hot weather" policies.
