Sean Combs, the famous rapper, is sponsoring a new charter school in Harlem that will open this fall. It will be dedicated to the theme of social justice, a worthy goal that is missing from many lives today.


If making money and becoming a celebrity is your definition of success, then Sean Combs is a huge success.


But he apparently has a serious anger management problem.


Last June, he exploded at a UCLA coach of his son’s football team, swung a weight at him, and was arrested on a felony charge. Being rich and famous, he got a super lawyer, the charge was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor, Combs was released on $160,000 bail and the charges were eventually dropped.


Diddy said the coach had yelled at his son during practice and was riding him. Apparently the coach didn’t know who the young man is or how important his father is.


The New York Daily News reported:


“Hot-headed rap mogul P. Diddy was arrested Monday after being accused of attacking his son’s college football coach in Los Angeles with a kettlebell weight.


“The 45-year-old Diddy came unhinged after he angrily confronted the UCLA assistant coach for screaming at his son, Justin, who plays defensive back from the Bruins team, according to


“Diddy, whose real name is Sean Combs, was arrested about 12:30 p.m. by UCLA campus cops after the violent encounter at the school’s Acosta Athletic Training Complex.
“He was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon, the kettlebell weight.


“Combs exploded at assistant coach Sal Alosi after he confronted him about riding his son during an on-field strength and conditioning session, sources told the gossip website.”


What can be learned from this encounter? What are the social justice lessons?


A father must always stand up for his son?


If you are rich enough, you can escape the consequences of your actions?


There is one law for the rich, another for the poor, so get rich?


What is the teachable lesson here?
