Coach Hollenbeck seems like a good guy that made a terrible lapse in judgement. How could you think this would go over well? The principle from Camas was fired for saying, “Not gonna lie, seems to me that karma caught up with a rapist today” about Kobe's death. Many other examples across the state and nation about these off the cuff comments will come back to bite you. |
I don't see how he could remain a coach. I think it was a thoughtless post, insensitive and for as much experience as he has in grappling and wrestling he didn't do anything close to what was done to George Floyd. It seemed more mocking and making light of a man that lost his life.
You gotta think before you post people.
The lady in Central Park that called the police on a black guy for no apparent reason. After the video was posted, her name was found in a few hours, her employer was bombarded with calls, messages and emails. Within three days of the incident, she was fired, I heard she might lose her lease and her dog was taken away from the place she rescued it. Yeah, people found out where she got her dog and that rescue organization contacted her and got the dog back.
I'm not against public shaming for somethings. I think it was the only call to make in firing Coach Hollenbeck, but that should be the end of it. I don't like how it becomes a witch hunt and the public is looking to destroy every facet of someones life.
I don't know Coach Hollenbeck's thoughts on things or what motivated him to do this, but yeah, he's done with school wrestling. Maybe coaching altogether. I have mixed feelings about that.
