David Frost

The trial of sick bastard David Frost is underway in Napanee, Ontario.

It's a tangled, sordid mess, actually, and if it could only be about getting to the bottom of this souless, weak pervert, so much the better. Oh wait. I think I'm supposed to use the word 'allegedly' throughout this volley.

But it's not only about Frost. From the beginning of the end, when Mike Danton (nee Jefferson), a former NHLer ended up serving 7 years in a U.S. prison for plotting to kill his former coach, Frost, this has become a vortex that has claimed way too many victims. Rosie DiManno is covering the trial for the Star, and Christie Blatchford is doing duty for the G&M. With some Svengali-like control, Frost, as coach of the Quinte Hawks circa 1996, bullied and coached his young players both on and off the ice.

16-year-old kids. Let's not forget that part. The current trial is dealing with the charges of sexual exploitation regarding his young players. In a nutshell, this creep is charged with, for a period of 6 years, participating in the sex lives - indeed, entire lives - of his players and their girlfriends. Threesomes, foursomes, sexual free-for-alls, all with this pig in the midst, controlling the kids and deciding who got to do what, and to whom. To make the charges stick, the crown had to agree that the girls - 16-year-old girls - were in no way victims in this. They are now sitting in a witness box, unprotected once again, having their sex lives displayed in the public forum.

It's gross. And today in the Star, there was the first expected letter from a reader yelling that this isn't proper fare for a newspaper to be publishing. It upset her breakfast.

You know what? Follow this trial and send the columns I linked - and the backstory - to every teenage girl you know. Girls can be dumb, and make really, really stupid life-altering mistakes all in the pursuit of a boy. Usually, however, that boy isn't having his strings pulled by an alleged pervert. Far from blaming the girls - my, how handy is that? - we should be thanking them for having the spine to sit there and take all the crap that's raining down on them right now. They were used, horribly. I'm appalled by the actions of these boys (come on parents, start reinforcing the idea that your sons should respect women, and start it young) but these children were all horribly scarred by Frost. Allegedly. Just ask Danton.

Not your kids, you say? Couldn't happen? Bull. But less likely to happen if you barge into your kids lives and wonder why they're hanging out in motel rooms. Or be more careful in sending them away to live in hotel rooms, with some creep who has usurped your parental powers.

This story is frightening, from the parents who relinquished control of their sons' lives in hopes of furthering their kids' hockey career, to the girls who were taken advantage of by this jerk and his underlings. Mr. Frost, complete with his ALLEGED third testicle, should be strung up.

Hey JMD, couldn't agree with you more. This is horrifying. I wish I were sitting on this jury. Hope this creep doesn't get off.
What's with our justice system? These girls are just as much victims as the boys.
