Sounds like a hate crime, they were yelling "we're going to kill you white boy"... If it were a group of white people yelling that to a black guy, it would definitely be upgraded right away to a hate crime. So I think there should be two charges here, attempted murder and hate crime.

that piece of crap should rot in a prison cell for life & someone should cut & stab him & cut off his man hood. if hes not man enough to fight like a man than he doesn't need it. he needs to suffer & be tried as an adult. there is too much bad & negativity in this world & not enough discipline for peoples actions.

I woke up hearing what had happened on the news and thought there is no way that's the same Shawn, but when I looked it really was you. I am very sorry for what happened to you, and would just like you to know that you're in my thoughts and prayers, and I hope justice is served.

I must agree this was definitely a hate crime and if it does not get treated as so, we are surely looking at reverse discrimination.

This guy better be charged with a hate crime and what about the other 10-15, how about we find and charge them as well.

The greater majority of people in prison are black yet the complain that is not fair. Mexicans are right behind them. Learn not to do the crime fool and your numbers will go down. There are good people of all colors but the stupid idiots make it hard on the good. The white and the veteran is sadly the minority now so where is our help. We supported others when they came to the forfront as minority, it is our turn.

stabbings dont happen for no reason yes this man did get the worst of it but what did he do to cause this kind of and out come as he said in the video his friend was getting the best of another kid and if you see you friend in danger being beaten by someone else its is common for you to stick up for your friend on the news they point all the fingers at the stabber but i think it should be some what considered self defense as for all you thinking it was a hate crime think again the victims were not the only white people there

So, 14 stab wounds takes care of that problem? Is that how you deal with strangers walking through you're "HOOD"?

He and his brothers were there just walking the dog with no problems and then he saw The gang of kids starting shit with their friend and one of the brothers took the dog home and came back. The fight was taking place when he came back. And for all of those that don't know the true story the gano's don't even own a bat!!! The gang brought two bats with them. Who brought the kitchen knife? So that goes to show you that the gang came intentionally trying to cause harm. Kids under 18 why are they affilliating themselves with gang members? And where are those kid's parents? Thats why these kids are crazy and don't care who it is they hurt or kill. They probably grew up without a father. Gano boy's father was there to rescue his son before he bled to death. That is the truth. It may hurt sometimes.
