Linesman Death: Dutch Amateur Footballers Convicted of Manslaughter of Richard Nieuwenhuizen

Six teenagers and father of youth player sentenced for beating linesman to death.

Six Dutch teenagers and a 52-year-old man have been convicted of the manslaughter of a football linesman after they kicked him to death at an under-17s match.

Richard Nieuwenhuizen, a 41-year-old father of three, died from severe head injuries after he was attacked by the footballers in December.

Judges in Lelystad, the Netherlands, sentenced the father of a player identified only as El-Hasan D, to six years in prison for his part in the attack.

Five teenagers were given two-year sentences and a sixth was sentenced to a year. A seventh player, aged 15, was sentenced to 30 days' detention for assault.



My word, I have heard of guys taking football seriously, but this just rips the backside clean out of it...!!

Imo, Those aren't sentences they're slaps on their wrists. I'm sure their harsh (NOT) sentence learned them a lesson (NOT).  Sickening that that is all they got. Our world is messed up, they should be looked at as adults who killed a man, a father.
And sent away for a good long long while.

Keep your eyes wide open and don't run!

P.S. Just to be clear, because sometimes I am not. I do not believe...
in the existence of a large previously unknown undiscovered hairy biped roaming North America.
But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.

It is sickening, those aren't sentences they are nothing compared to the death of a person.

One need not be a house;
