Not too sure if this one has been mentioned but Kenners has been a naughty boy by the looks of things

"Lisburn Magistrates Court was told he was going through a mental health crisis at the time of the offence."

And that makes it ok to spit at people? Give me a fucking break. Good riddance to the arrogant piece of shit.

The courts never said it was ok, however when your in a mental health crisis and at a low point from personal experience myself you don’t care about yourself or your actions. Now that’s no excuse for what Kenners done but he clearly wasn’t of a fit mental state at the time.

On a side note I don’t ever remember our fans ripping into Dean Wells for football hooliganism in fact I remember it was praised we even created a chant surrounding the incident which was very weird.

I’ve been in a mental health crisis before and managed to not spit in anyone’s face during it.

Not saying this is what is happening in Ben’s case but sadly these days some people think they can act like bell ends and then blame it on their mental health.

I am a little suspicious as to whether he was actually in a MH crises, I would suggest his lawyer maybe used the fact that he has previously possibly had some MH issues (we don't know, it's private) as mitigation, to keep him out of jail following a drunken assault on a police officer.

Colour me cynical.

And even if he was going through an episode of MH trouble, lots of people do, the vast majority don't get pissed, breach lockdown and gob on people trying to keep them safe.

MH is not an excuse for extremely antisocial behaviour. I have enough experience of both the law and MH to know this.

So don't bother lecturing me.

It’s not a lecture it’s an opinion but when people’s first thoughts are debating wether he’s actually in a mental health crisis you start to understand why so many people stay quiet for years and don’t talk about their issues and bottle them up because ultimately a lot of society brushes mental health issues aside. Mental Health affects people differently, as I said previously his mental health issues are no excuse however because the majority behave in a certain way when struggling with mental health it doesn’t mean everyone is going to react the same. Most of the replies on this forum aren’t helpful at all and are incredibly damaging to a person’s mental health. Did Kenners do wrong 100% I’ve never said he done nothing wrong however assuming someone may of used his MH as an excuse only alienates those struggling and stops them seeking the help the need.

The personal insults towards Kenners have been plentiful on here the past few weeks from multiple users yet I’ve seen posts on here today carrying on to rip into a former player with personal insults dispute bravely opening up about his issues.

Whilst mental health isn’t an excuse it does affect people’s reactions to situations. By Law this is shown in more lenient sentences.

If you were a proper fan he wouldn't have to....

I can think of 5 players but most of the offences were after they played for us.

Gavin Grant- Murder (committed before he played for us but not convicted until after, so we didn't know)
Dean Wells - affray (before)
Efe Sodje - fraud (after)
Anthony Thomas - assault (before) and animal cruelty (after)
Tesfaye Bramble - rape (after)

Pretty sure Anthony Thomas was after us. As we’re all the others.

So we’ve got two. Potentially three players. Hardly groundbreaking.

Why would I post my view? Exactly the same reason you’d post yours.

Except with my views I don’t personally insult former players. Now your questioning wether he can read. The other day the title of your post was ‘WATN Knob edition’. despite a former player declaring his struggles with mental health issues your still looking for them little digs at them. No wonder mental health issues are growing when some people are just constantly looking for an opportunity to pounce and slate. Hopefully no one is affected by this toxic behaviour.

About a year ago I mentioned that BK had problems and asked fans to get off his back to some degree. How did I know? Well I happened to be into photography and saw evidence in a photo that was was enlarged to reveal signs. It was when he had a two week break. So please believe that he has genuine problems and may be behaving accordingly. Every mental health issue should be judged on its own circumstance.

Has Kennedy opened up about mental health issues? Or has his lawyer mentioned it during a case where Kennedy SPAT in a policeman's face?

It was called that because every time he played our fans wanted to see his knob. But that doesn't fit your agenda so pretend it means something else by all means.

Whether or not he had mental health issues at the time of the spitting I wouldn’t know, but he definitely DID have some fairly severe mental health issues during his time here. I witnessed one of them out in public (as I believe I may have mentioned to one or two on here at the time) and it was both real and serious. Let’s hope for his sake he can deal with whatever these demons are.

Two things about this story and reactions:

1. Mental illness is terrible and can have a horrible impact on people.
2. His actions in the story are disgusting and should be punished.

Both opinions can be simultaneously held.
