MOTHER OF BULLIED BOY NOT KEEN ON COYOTES STATEMENT REGARDING MITCHELL MILLER

The mother of a boy Arizona Coyotes draft pick Mitchell Miller was convicted of bullying four years ago is not at all appeased by a statement released by the team. In the statement, the Coyotes said 'we are willing to work with Mitchell and put in the time, effort, and energy and provide him with the necessary resources and platform to confront bullying and racism', while adding he wrote a letter to every NHL team in advance of the draft apologizing for his previous actions. Joni, the mother of Isaiah Meyer-Crothers--the boy Mitchell admitted in court to bullying with some reprehensible actions--has released her own statement saying this isn't good enough.

"I respect you stating he sent all the NHL teams an apology," said the mother. "But wouldn't it make sense if he was truly remorseful to send a letter to the kid he brutally bullied both mentally and physically?"

"I guess as an organization and NHL team I would expect so much more and hold them to a higher standard..."

"As much as we pray Mitchell will eventually see the damage he did to our son, we have seen no remorse," she continued. "The other gentleman had a sincere apology to our son and our son forgave him. The magistrate said it best: 'Mitchell, I don't think you are remorseful for what you did more than you are upset for the negative attention you are getting.'"



Earlier this week, it came to light in a report that Miller admitted in an Ohio juvenile court to bullying Meyer-Crothers when both were 14. One such incident included tricking him into licking a candy push pop that Miller and another student had wiped in a bathroom urinal. As a result, Meyer-Crothers had to be tested for hepatitis, HIV, and STDs, though the tests came back negative. Meyer-Crothers said Miller often called him “brownie” and the “N-word” repeatedly while hitting him growing up in the Toledo suburb. Other students have backed up these claims to local police. Meyer-Crothers has developmental disabilities that his mother has said puts him around four years behind most people his age.
