It's not the umpire's job to impart lessons ... by CJC

no matter how badly the lesson may be needed.

The umpire was completely out of bounds. If you want to talk about emboldening people, anything less than a suspension arguably would embolden other umpires to administer "tough lessons" any time their delicate egos got bruised.

Whatever may or may not be an appropriate response to the kid has absolutely nothing to do with determining the proper response to the umpire.
