Pushed him over and kicked him in the testicles. The kid may have been out of bounds, but the minister's reaction seems unjustifiable. Not a sissy here; I just don't think getting hit in the face with a dodgeball justifies kicking the person in the balls, especially for someone who's 25.
Oh, I agree. There is plenty of blame to go around here.
Ministers have to deal with difficult and selfish people all the time. It's part of the job. For him to blow up like that indicates he has no business in the ministry.
