Preview Clip

A teenage rugby player from Mississauga, Ontario was found guilty of manslaughter in the death of an opposing player. Crown attorney John Raftery said the May 28th verdict sent an important message that there aren't two sets of rules for what happens during a sports match and what happens in ordinary life. (Fifteen-year-old Manny Castillo died from a head injury suffered in a high school rugby game in May, 2007. The Crown argued that the accused committed manslaughter when he lifted Castillo into the air and then drove him head first into the ground.)
