We either should be treating kids as adults for all purposes or we should treat them differently from adults. It is nothing short of hypocrisy to say well...in some cases we will treat them one way and treat them differently in others based on the same rationale.

    Really? YOU just implied that he should have expected the beating. That sure sounds like "the white kid started it" to me.

It's sad really that so much negative has to come out of the ignorance that people like you display.
    no, what is ignorant is refusing to adopt the predominant language of one's community
    what is ignorant is pretending that a failure to adopt the predominant language will likely not stymie one's opportunity for economic success
    that failure to adopt the predominant language is a handicapping condition. a handicap which can - and should - be eliminated, not embraced

    Agreed, so can we focus on the thread topic?

    You have GOT to be kidding here? The father saying "I'm sorry for what happened to the victim, but that's just the way it is?" What the hell is that?

    Sorry, but these kids, all three of them should be charged as adults, and serve time.

    What say you?
    Complete agreement.

    These three kids are not "kids", but hardened thugs who seem willing to kill. Lock them up, and throw away the key. "Sorry" doesn't begin to absolve them of their pathetic behaviour.

    He was speaking English - that is the predominant language of his community. Are you confusing dialect and language? Those are two separate things.

    what is ignorant is pretending that a failure to adopt the predominant language will likely not stymie one's opportunity for economic success
    Again, he was speaking English. What are you talking about? This does not apply to him.

    that failure to adopt the predominant language is a handicapping condition. a handicap which can - and should - be eliminated, not embraced
    See above. It strikes me that you are ignorant about the difference between a dialect and a language. That's a pretty serious problem, particularly when you're attempting to have a conversation about how people speak. I would suggest that when it comes to calling people ignorant you not throw stones living in that glass house.

    yes, you have proven that to us

    Just notating the color of the attackers is racist to alot.
    identifying the race of the involved parties is NOT racist
    but it declines into racism when their ethnicities become the focus of an incident which was not itself the result of racial differences

    They need to be prosecuted...and "I'm sorry" doesn't mean you shouldn't face the consequences of your actions...but why should they be tried as adults? Kids get beat up in school all the time. Even group beatings aren't out of the ordinary extreme crime.
