Pee Wee Football Player Suspended

A Kansas City pee-wee football player is on suspension right now after kicking an opposing player while down.
You can see on the upper left side of the screen, 12-year-old Maurice Martin, # 58, thrown to the ground and kicked in the head. Both players were removed from the team for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Maurice was punished for taking off his helmet and cursing. His mom says she has no problem with her son being punished, but she was shocked to see the other player back on the field.
The league's commissioner says the one-game suspension for player #5 is adequate punishment. However, after another member saw this video, the board looked into it again.
At this hour, he is out for the rest of the season.
