I think that it is very unfortunate that it happened but it has and it is how adults handle the aftermath that is important. All choices that we make in life have consequences. There is no need to turn this into a racial issue.

An assault was committed and those players still dressed out for the game. Unbelievable!! Since the leadership obviously doesn't have the courage to suspend them for the season it most likely will incite another incident and for what? to salvage an already lousy football season? Truth is 100% correct, its how the adults handle it that is important and the Alma community is watching.

Curious to see if Bacon County officials, and the Board of Education, do the jobs they were hired to do. This is a felony. Action needs to be taken. Were watching and waiting.

The board has no authority to press charges. That is up to the victim. Some people believe that because it happened off campus the school shouldn't get involved.

The victim doesn't want to press charges, so there is nothing that can legally be done as far as filing charges.

The leagal auth can press charges without the victim when a crime occurs and there is evidence.

If this happened where I think it did, then there has been other incidents at this property as well. Perhaps we should look at the people that own the property and allow underage drinking, drugs, parties and fighting. The same people that sit in church with you on Sunday mornings are often the ones that bought the alcohol for your underage teenager the night before.

Here's the deal: The victim CHOSE NOT TO PRESS CHARGES. NOTHING CAN BE DONE IF HE WON'T PRESS CHARGES!!!! The school isn't able to do anything to them since it happened off campus and there were no charges filed, so they made them sit the game out to send a message to them, something that pissed off some of the parents of the players. I think they did everything that was LEGALLY in their power to punish them. But there is always someone who thinks they know what the law is. Bottom line, if the victim doesn't take action, no one else CAN take action.

This is the Alma feed, but sometimes the posts cross for some reason. Not sure why

Not necessarily. Sure, if a murder took place, THAT victim can't press charges, obviously. I happen to know THIS victim personally and he didn't WANT to press charges. He has his reasons. I worked as an investigator and have responded to too many calls where people didn't want to press charges. There were many times I had to let someone go I wish I could have locked up.

If you go to work high or drunk should you not be fired?
A truck driver can loose their licence if caught speeding in their own means of transportation, no licence no job.
A nurse that doesn't come to the aid of someone in need of her training can loose their licence even if she isn't at work.
Let's all make excuses for them and tell them how they are not in the wrong.

If it had been white on black the whites would already been in jail. And if in school uniform it should be school issue.

Charges can be filed , by the district attorney if he sees that a wrong was committed, and I,ve just learned that charges have been filed, go to WTOC news, the video is there along with the story, judge for yourself, these students represent ALMA on the field and off, there are rules that high school athletes , cheerleaders and band members have to abid by at school and away from school,suspend the players and cheerleaders, action has to be taken.
