Plus, you know, it damaged someone's wheelchair.

I hope this piece of garbage doesn't get harassed every time he goes to a party or bar. That would be terrible.


Aggravating_Foot_528 t1_jd09f22 wrote

It's actually worse if he is just ignored. If he gets harassed a lot of people in his position turns this into a "me against the world" situation. Ignoring is far more painful.

There's another option where this kid learns from his mistakes and actually it turns out to be okay. Let's hope for that one

While I was not an asshole to this guys level, few are thank God, I was once a 20 year old knucklehead. Him facing fair and just consequences for his actions and learning from his mistakes is truly the ideal outcome.

Hazel1928 t1_jd3h69l wrote

Way back in the 1980s, a medical college where I was a student had “stacks” This is where all the previous editions of all the medical journals were stored. There was a way to search by topic, but it didn’t pull up the whole article, just the journal and date of publication. So for research papers, you had to go and dig through these stacks. It was all very tight, minimal space to move around. The stairs were narrow. A couple male med students were caught placing 2-3 chairs at the top of the stacks area, so that if someone opened the door to enter the stacks, these chairs would tumble down, possibly injuring someone on their way up the stairs. Noone was seriously injured. When these guys were caught, there was a lot of debate about the appropriate punishment. Finally it was decided that the guys would lose a year. So if this happened during the spring of their third year of med school, they were out for the rest of spring semester, all of fall semester, then they could join in the class a year behind them when the following spring semester began. During their time out of school, they had to do community service, including tutoring undergrads in biology. I thought that was a fair punishment. Severe enough that they really paid for their youthful indiscretion, but not as severe as expulsion.

monkeymerlot t1_jd1z5vg wrote

People here think he is 19 or something. He is 23 years old which is very much an adult. Most people will have graduated college and started their career at this point. His actions should be evaluated fairly, taking his past behaviors into consideration.

I don’t know anything abt this kid. This just seems like a dumb thing a kid does, is there a history?


SophiaofPrussia t1_jd2uivm wrote

Do you understand how evil and violating it is to take away a person’s wheelchair? Their means of getting around in the world? Their sense of independence? It’s absolutely reprehensible behavior. I can’t even think of a good analogy to convey to you how disgusting his actions were. I’ve known a lot of dumb kids and I’ve even been one myself and I’ve never ever seen any of them steal someone’s means of mobility and damage it.


jsdjsdjsd t1_jd3qnuc wrote

I wasn’t defending the dude, I also didn’t know where he got the wheelchair-it didn’t say he stole it from someone in yeah article. I was honestly looking for context because I have never heard of the kid before.


whatisevenleft t1_jd2o21e wrote

He’s 23 and was already kicked out of one college for partying too hard. He has already been given a second chance by his second college. I’m guessing since daddy is rich and famous he’ll get several more chances.


saintofhate t1_jd3oxgw wrote

It's also worth noting you know how hard it is to get kicked out of ASU for partying? Like it is a party school according to people that I know who have gone there including my wife.


SeptasLate t1_jd4ejpn wrote

He was kicked off a team, not out of a school.


whatisevenleft t1_jd5dmj6 wrote

He was only there to be on the team. You think he went to ASU for academics?


SeptasLate t1_jd5f9zd wrote

This is true but I just think if we're going to drag the kid when there's obvious things he did wrong that could be focused on.

I also think we should avoid tarnishing ASU's name by saying you can get kicked out for partying.


whomp1970 t1_jd3j1bh wrote

Are you kidding? There are far too many dude-bro guys who think what he did was hilarious. He's probably a celebrity among many, depending on the kinds of bars/parties he goes to.

From the article:

Patrick Carrozzi, listed as a senior member of the school’s lacrosse team, faces the same three charges, according to documents filed with District Judge Sue Mack.

Dudes gonna get a fine and that's about it. His daddy will pay it and he'll learn nothing from this.


glipglop106 t1_jd0gn4f wrote

With daddy’s connections he probably had a shot of playing pro hockey at some level. With lady karma doing her thing, those chances hopefully went down the stairs too. I believe he will have his consequences.


pooptits2 t1_jd2ihax wrote

He doesnt have a shot of playing pro hockey. Hes like 23 and not a star player at the college level. Chances are slim and none. Hes already near his peak


HogwartsKate t1_jd1ybv4 wrote

Hopefully the judge makes him do community service with disabled. Hes a young guy, drunk no doubt and he needs to learn its not the thing to do.

owleealeckza t1_jd2hmu6 wrote

Why punish disabled people for this guy's actions? They shouldn't have to spent time with someone who likely won't respect them so he can rehab his image, cuz that's all that would do. Give him a fine & a week in jail or whatever instead. Don't punish more disabled people.


ANAHOLEIDGAF t1_jd1ndlg wrote

Released a fucking statement through the Flyers org, the franchise should've slapped daddy with a fine for that shit.


Sweet_Sprinkles_4744 t1_jd3fd6b wrote

Why fine Danny Briere? Did you advocate for punishing Andy Reid when Britt Reid was caught dealing drugs, or any of his other law enforcement encounters?


ANAHOLEIDGAF t1_jd7pdph wrote

Because they released a statement from an NHL organization because some shitty kid did a shitty thing? Not saying to fine him just cuz. He used his position to try and give it weight and made himself, the org, and the NHL look like dumbasses. It was unrelated to the flyers and should've stayed that way.

He probably wanted to have flyers fans harass the woman.


IamSauerKraut t1_jd2i47f wrote

Frankly, if this is the first charge filed against him, he will get fined and maybe restitution, plus 25 hours of community service. If he behaves for a certain amount of time, his record will be expunged. Not what everyone likes but fairly typical.


glberns t1_jd0rehs wrote

I guess I'm the only one who thinks that he doesn't need to die if he pays for the damage he caused and did some community service?


time-lord t1_jd12bpd wrote

The kid made a bad life choice. The supposed purpose of our justice system is to rehabilitate, nit destroy, lives. But he's the flyers gm's kid, so the pitchforks came out.


Revealingstorm t1_jd0y5gc wrote

It's a shitty thing what the person did, but people are acting like he did something unforgivable here. Just a stupid college kid that hopefully learns from their mistakes.


R15K t1_jd1cgre wrote

My daughter is 23 and graduated college last year so perhaps I feel closer to it than I should but I just can’t imagine trying to ruin this kid’s life like half of reddit is trying to do right now. There’s people in the thread on /r/news calling for felony charges, making death threats, trying to get his father fired, organizing campaigns to try to get him suspended and other ridiculous shit.

It’s kinda scary quite honestly.


saintofhate t1_jd11w3v wrote

Wheelchairs are often several thousands of dollars. Losing your wheelchair can completely destroy your livelihood. It's not a mistake.

You think he's a psychopath who set out to destroy someone's life on purpose?


saintofhate t1_jd1pwdd wrote

Let's find out why he was kicked out of ASU considering you really have to fuck up to get kicked out of there according to the ASU graduates I know.


owleealeckza t1_jd2huyi wrote

No, but he clearly didn't give a fuck what danger he could've put others or the wheelchair owner in. She or others could've gotten seriously hurt. He shouldn't just get a warning over this.


Revealingstorm t1_jd12m4e wrote

Well he'll be punished accordingly, but he rightly won't have his future taken away from him like a lot of the people here want. If he shows no remorse and does something like that again then that's another story.


negativewishingwell t1_jd346do wrote

Destroying a few thousand dollars worth of property is probably like a 3rd degree misdemeanor. This is a less serious crime than getting a DUI but due to the intersectional politics of the people involved Reddit wants nothing less than this kid’s head on a pike. 3/10 on the scale of college athlete misdeeds considering Aaron Hernandez probably murdered people while at Florida.


Grapple_Shmack t1_jd3lrcb wrote

From all accounts, this wasn't some one-off lapse of judgement. This one just got caught on camera

So I'm guessing you think he should just get a warning then & be sent on his way.

It is rather annoying that very little information was reported on the young woman, Sydney, and how the young men's actions effected and will affect Sydney's day to day life until she can get the wheelchair repaired and/or replaced. But we sure did learn a lot about Carson and his hockey career as well as dad's position with an NHL team.

There has been pretty much non stop coverage of this "event" by local news. At least 10 updates by each station.

Apologize, pay for a new wheelchair, and then make him do community service somewhere that works with handicapped people. Hopefully it opens his mind up to how dumb his actions were and makes him a little more empathetic.

Hope he never ends up on my team. A lot of you are acting like he jaywalked or cheated on a test, instead of endangered lives. But it's usually still acceptable to fuck with disabled people or their medical property, so I understand why most of you don't care.


Sasha_sarah t1_jd4prl1 wrote

Wow, that's terrible! Pushing someone in a wheelchair down the stairs is not only dangerous, but it's also incredibly cruel. I hope justice is served and that Carson Briere is held accountable for their actions. No one deserves to be treated this way, especially someone who is already dealing with physical limitations.

This won’t be the last time he gets himself into trouble.

Plea deal incoming. Will be interesting to see if he gets probation or if that's only what the poors get. Probation may be what keeps him on the straight and narrow until his frontal lobes mature.
