Aren't conservatives supposed to be the party of values? Why don't you want to know who these trackers were?
Hazlnut's been all over this thread defending Etheridge and saying that he acted appropriately. In some cases he's said Etheridge should have done more, or that more should have been done to the trackers.
You're going to lose this one, which I tried to hint at earlier. Let this one go, my friend. You're about to get creamed.
Hazlnut did indeed make a pretty gigantic, partisan ass of himself in this thread. You're not going to win this battle. The posts jallman claims exist really are present.

The lack of fame of these students is not a factor to anyone except those trying to mitigate poor behavior by pretending there was other poor behavior that prompted it. In other words...you and hazlnut.

He's certainly tried to cover his bases by including things like "I don't condone this, but...." so that he can always fall back on "well I did say he was wrong!," but he's otherwise made his position on this very clear.
He claimed that these kids assaulted Etheridge and that Etheridge was just defending himself from their attack. That's blatantly false.
He's said that he likes the way the guy handled it. That's excusing him.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
