This was nothing short of criminal assault in both cases. Why hasn't he been charged?

All of this would've been prevented if the organizers of the event would've blocked/taped off certain areas from the public to prevent interruptions.
Now we have a man making excuses for his action! SMH

I feel so sorry for this Craig. The child was not hurt, the children were displaying poor and potentially dangerous behaviour.Craig, acting as a parent and chaparone, was obviously left unsupported by the organisers to deal with this part of the competition on his own.A collection of bad circumstances, that led to a cocktail explosion.Leave the poor chap alone. He has sufford (I think unjustly) enough. This man was doing the right thing for good reason. It just blew up in his face and

There is no excuse for assault or abuse of any kind. He shouldn't have assaulted that teen,period. It's disgusting. Well done to the ADULT who stood up to him. Shame on YOU.

"I was being verbally attacked, so I reacted."
Shite... hope the police don't take on this line of attack!!! "The protesters were rude to us, so we bashed their heads in!"... or teachers: "The kids were cheeky and annoying me, so I smashed them over! " god help us

"I'm sorry, BUT..."
All the organizers should be locked up. That is just sad to watch. "100$ for the cutest kid under 6" omfg.

What caused the situation, and why was there a group doing there own thing at cross purposes with the organised event? Answer: Badly organised event run by someone who shouldn't have anything to do with skating. (rehab plus lids??? C'mon ACC!@!!!_This guy was definately put on a spot between two opposing factions, unbeknown to him. he broke the law, fact, but he was in a lose lose situation, all the while why he thought he was there to help. He's definately the fall guy here.
