This is what happens when you raise spoiled brats. They feel they're entitled to do as they please and are riding on the coattails of their parent's fame and fortune. Luckily for the bratty thugs,in Indiana we don't send the wealthy to prison no matter how egregious the crimes they commit. In fact,BPD is probably looking at the rider the Mellencamps(and the coach) have sent to authorities demanding certain amenities and luxuries be accommodated before they allow their brutish offspring to turn themselves into police. Starbucks and Krispy Kreme? Perrier? Evian? We coddle and accommodate wealthy crime suspects in Indiana. Just ask the Speirers.

I'm sure these 18 yr old men will now spend their time hiding behind the skirts and trousers of their wealthy parents and the high dollar attorneys their parents have bought for them. I mean,golly gee,you're 18 yrs old and a supposed bad a** and now you want to hide behind mommy,daddy and the attorneys they've bought for you? Ha! Scarecrow!

If you thought John Mellencamp Cougar singing about the common man was full of irony before this incident,in the words of BTO.....You ain't seen nothing yet.

Can someone answer me this? If you're going to carry yourself as a wild party animal and Barney Bad Ass. Why do you need ---as an 18 yr old adult male that likes to fight (in a group)-- your father present to hold your hand as you turn yourself into authorities as Ty Smith has done?

Because everyone needs a hand to hold onto.

These 3 cave n!@@ers are thugs. Had they been black they would have been tried for attempted murder. Where is the outcry from white America about this attack? You mayonnaise monkeys were howling for blood when those 3 kids in Florida beat down a fellow student on a bus. Why are the Fox network cave apes like bill o'reilly and sean hannity not concerned about white on white violence? You neanderthal n!@@ers should have never been let out of the caves of Europe.

Honestly, Too bad, for you and your kind, we are out and aren't going away. I see, by your post, seems you have anger issue problems. You really should have that checked. BTW, if you'll notice, no one is defending, what these little rich boys did. But here we go, you have to throw race, into the mix.
