    Re: These kids should go to JAIL!

    Not only should the six beating the guy get lengthy sentences, but so should the guy filming. He may not have laid a hand (or foot) on the kid, but he certainly wasn't just an innocent bystander afraid for his life if he interfered. The one kid handed him a pair of gloves to hold then went back to the beating. That's just messed up.

    I'm sorry, but this just really makes me think of the Jena 6 case. I have to wonder about how those who viewed the Jena 6 as being charged "harshly" feel about these 6 beaters, who seem to be white and possibly other races, beating on an Asian kid? (Personally, I seriously hope these guys are charged with attempted murder, since it was 6 on 1.)

    Send them to jail. As a libertarian, I've never felt more in support of hate crime laws in my life. Though I don't necessarily support the idea behind hate crime legislation because I'm worried it may come with unintended consequences, I do find the idea of mandatory prison sentences very appealing in this case.
    I still don't think that hate crime legislation is necessary. This sort of assault is not OK in any circumstance. They should go to jail though, I hope they catch the ones responsible.

    That was kinda hard to watch. I got beat down like that by six guys when I was 13. They tried to cap the beating by carving me up with a hawkbill knife; I broke loose and ran, possibly the only thing that kept me alive that day. Bad memories.

    The thing is, on a scale of brutality that wasn't even close to the worst. I've seen far and away worse when I was in LE. The evil that ordinary-looking people are capable of never fails to amaze.


    And some people wonder why I carry a gun and keep a suspicious eye on my fellow man.

    To bad there was noone around to find the closest piece of metal or thick wood and start swinging away until they dispersed. This is why you at least keep a pocket knife on you and when they let their guard down you start wide slashing at neck level. Score a hit on 2 necks and I garentee you they will start running. People that get caught fighting more than 1 on 1 need to be kicked in balls hundreds of times.

    I guess the Orange Country (at least thats where I heard it) myth of asian people falling over in 1 hit to the head is unfounded.

    I'm not sure if this is even a hate crime. Just looks like a bunch of kids who think they're the ****.

    We call each other that when our black friends aren't around. But for anyone wondering about the race of the perpetrators - yes it was a bunch of asian kids beating up a Chinese man. That's probably why the authorities said that it wasn't racially motivated.
