This incident has just made the news. Speaking only for myself but I am certain other people will agree, this is the most dispicable thing I have witnessed in some time.
Water Agency Director, Anthony Sanchez, of the Imperial Water District was caught on film whipping his step son because he failed to catch a ball during a backyard game of catch. A neighbor filmed the episode and admonished Mr. Sanchez for the abuse of the young boy. What is disturbing is that Mr. Sanchez showed no remorse or sense of embarressment, but shouted a flip comment back to the shocked neighbor.
Let it be known that Mr. Sanchez coaches T-Ball and soccer, and parents should be aware of his behavior and lack of moral concenience. Someone like this should not be around ANYONES children.
I would think that swft action should be taken by CPSA to investigate what other abuse this boy has most likely recieved at the hands of this poor excuse for a father figure.
Also a comment to the 'Imperial Irrigation District', that you should not have someone of this low charachter, in the position he retains as an employee. There are pleanty of men out there with families, out of work, who would set a far better example to the community than this moron. The video is provided below:
Make your voice heard and demand this man get some counseling and that this child be protected from this abusive individual.
