    unfortunately I was the one doing a lot of the "whipping" at school as I fancied myself as a bit of a thug and was constantly in trouble. However I grew up and realised the error of my ways and have become a pretty decent member of society. If you don't allow kids to learn from their mistakes we are royally ****ed as a species.

    Had the races been reversed, the 15 year olds would probably never see the light of day again. Much less be given 9 months of juvi probation.
    Seems like crimes that involve money are the ones that get toughest sentences; take Bernie Madoff for example (the guy's a loser, but that's besides the point). However, you can beat or rape someone and get off fairly lightly. Shows what's REALLY important in our society.

    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?
    I'd be willing to bet that father has been making excuses for his spawn all of his life.
    I've dealt with lots of parents like that. "My child is good, he never lies, he was just led astray by bad boys, oh, he would never do anything like that, you're just making it up, let's hear his side of the story, etc.,etc,.

    why are some many trying to make this a racist incident? these were three older kids who brutally beat up a younger kid. the victim reportedly told authorities that one of the three was dealing weed on campus
    the only racism involved is from a few board members who attempt to frame any incident where the participants were of different ethnicities as racially motivated
    is there anything to suggest the victim would not have been beaten for ratting them out if he had been black? if not, then this is not a racial incident
    The brutal incident made national headlines, in part because video of the attack captured on the bus’ surveillance camera went viral online. It also prompted critics to question why civil rights leaders did not speak up about the assault.
    looks like faux news is coaching the wannabe racists, positing that civil rights groups should involve themselves in a matter which has no racial basis

    this is confirmed by the police chief's assessment:
    The attackers were all African-American and the victim was white, although Gulfport Police Chief Robert Vincent told Fox News the attack did not appear to be racially motivated.

    The race of those involved should not be an issue. The motive for the attack was not racial; it was a (premeditated?) revenge beating for reporting alleged illegal activity (soliciting drug sales). Trying to make race into an issue detracts from the real issue which is a violent beating being given to those reporting crime. The lesson to be learned, by all reading this story, is that reporting crime can get you seriously beaten (or worse) so it is wiser to let crime go unreported. The punsihment for juveniles selling weed is likley about the same as for juveniles severely beating up those that report it, so why not keep on beating up anyone that dares to interfere with your drug sales?

    no, this is not about race ... at least until the race baiters show up

    i suspect many of us have already formed our opinion based on racist drivel we have seen in posts

    Sounds to me like the guy is not that articulate. "That is just the way it is" could be an attempt to express, "I wish I could change the past, but I can't" or "No matter how you try to teach your kids to be good people, they meet up with bad people who have greater influence in getting your kid to do bad things."

    I really cannot judge him one way or the other on the quote. My parents were the same people who raised both straight A students and kids who were holy terrors. What went on behind closed doors to try to get the holy terrors to not be that way was no lack of effort on their part. There are just limits to how much parents can do, especially with kids are who easily swayed by peer pressure or are inclined to be rebellious no matter how you punish them or how often.

    "My son ain't never been no bad person. Holy****. That's like a triple negative right there. Mind blown.
