17 year old kid kills referee during a soccer match with single punch

LINK

quote:

Ricardo Portillo of Salt Lake City passed away at Intermountain Medical Center where he was being treated for a punch he received after whistling a 17 year old player for a foul and issuing him a yellow card. The player, who has not been named because of his age, reportedly through a single punch at Portillo. The punch caused Portillo to suffer swelling in his brain, landing him in critical condition. While no cause of death has been released, a planned autopsy is expected to confirm the punch as the proximate cause.

Following the incident the player was booked into juvenile detention on suspicion of aggravated assault. With Portillo’s death, the teen will now be charged with homicide, likely manslaughter. The major determination of the player’s punishment will be whether or not he is charged as an adult. In Utah, there are several circumstances under which a juvenile may be tried in adult court. These include cases where the juvenile is fourteen years or older and has been charged with a serious felony.


Actions should have consequences.

Yeah, that ref should have thought twice about making that call.

re: 17 year old kid kills referee during a soccer match with single punch
Article opens with "punching him in the face" then this...

quote:

The player immediately began arguing with Portillo before unleashing a punch to the side of the referee’s head


If he hit him behind the ear, it's the back of the head, not face.

If he hit him in his ear, that is the side of the head, not face.

My money is on the ref getting sucker punched in the back of his head, which resulted in his death.

Jail for the criminal....life.

I really hope you aren't serious.

The kid will likely be charged with man slaughter, and have to serve some time.

Punching the man once out of frustration does not show intent to kill. I'm pretty sure this kid will be pretty messed up from this for the rest of his life.

It does not how intent to kill, but it does show that the kid is a worthless piece of shite. What are the chances this isn't a fricked up, violent kid? You think this is the last incident he'll have? Who the frick punches a ref in the head over a call?

Have you ever been in a fight? Have you ever thrown a punch?

I am not defending what the kid did, but to jump to conclusions about the kid being from the dregs of society is sad.

Freak accidents happen. He will be punished, but he doesn't deserve the chair as someone above suggested.

I heard on TV the other day, the state has a law that if you are 16 or older and kill someone, you get tried as an adult.

re: 17 year old kid kills referee during a soccer match with single punch
This happened because soccer players are used to the magic spray, that's used during matches, they can take a player that had horrible injury we have all seen this on tv, they spray it on the injured part and like magic they recover and continue to play.
The Thug probably thought they would just use the magic spray on the ref and he would pop right back up and everything will be fine.
Kids today are so immature (mommy and daddy do all the problem solving and decision-making for them) and when something goes really wrong Magic Spray a juice box and orange slices from mommy wont fix it.
