A disturbing cheap shot during a California basketball game left a teen girl concussed and her mother “in shock.”
At an event in Southern California, 15-year-old Lauryn Ham was sucker-punched by one of her opponents. According to her mother, she’s still recovering from the brutal punch over the weekend.
“Of course I was in total shock,” the victim’s mother, Alice Ham, told ABC7. “Just couldn’t believe that could happen to my child.”
Ham said her daughter was disoriented when she came home after the game.
“The person in question went down the court and shot a 3-pointer, landed, fell backwards into my daughter,” Ham said. “As they got up and turned and were walking back down to the other side of the court, her mom says to her, ‘You need to hit her for that.’ And the child in question sucker-punched my daughter.”

It was a vicious assault.
I agree with the victim’s Mom it was criminal.
At the very least, there should be public outrage.
What are we as a society coming to?
[JR: New mother told her to hit the girl? Sounds like the mom needs to go to jail too. What are they teaching children these days?]
