Justice for Erik Meza

Robert Erik Meza was killed while playing flag football. He was deliberatley hit from behind by a player from the opposing team. The other player was not defending the ball or playing the game he was trying to start a fight because his team was losing. He pushed Erik so hard from behing Erik flew in the air flipping and landed on his head causing him to die. Erik never seen the other player coming, he was playing a non contact sport where pushing/tackling is not allowed. The prosecuter will not prosecute the person who pushed Erik because they can not find a sporting event case where a death was involved that was chargeable. If precedent in this matter has not been set maybe it time to set a precendent. How many people do you know that have died from flag football I can only think of one. The prosecuter says that because Erik was playing a game in an arena he put himself in harms way. Flag football is a non contact sport; you do not go into the arena thinking you are going to die. The line has to be drawn when it is no longer considered a game.
