What is society sinking to now? A pro basketball player choking and threatening his coach's life?

I've seen and heard just about everything rotten in this world through television and newspapers, now this sad incident.

Some of us learn to control tempers through maturity and listening to elders' advice. Evidently, Mr. Sprewell has not learned to settle disputes through talking or reasoning. His frustration spilled over to violence of which there is so much permeating through society.

What kind of message does this incident send to our young and impressionable?

The league should make Mr. Sprewell an example and ban him for life.
