Jesse and Kyle didnt touch the guy.
So everyone needs to stop saying nasty comments going towards them 4 boys.
Yea it was wrong they didnt tell the other two boys to stop beating on the guy.
But seriously everyone needs to stop leaving rude comments and acting like they know the story when they dont.
Only family and friends of the four boys know the story.
"Only family and friends of the four boys know the story."

How about the victim? Doesn't he know the story also? It sounds to me like these kids lie to their parents, wouldn't they lie to their family also about their part in this crime?

Wow we sure have some spirited comments on this subject.
I too got into a lot of trouble as a teen, but never beat and robbed anyone.
I wish i would have been there to help that man.
The kids need to have someone make them realize how serious this is, and it is !
And then to admitt to what they did and accept the punishment.
And then counselling and maybe this wont happen again with them.
Goll I hope they never do it again.

Every time you post you are an insult to your community and to your school. Not to mention making a laughingstock of yourself with your ignorance and outright stupidity. But keep posting... We are all enjoying the laughs at your expense, although I'm sure a few of us are shaking our heads that our tax dollars go to try and "educate" and ignoramus such as yourself. LMAO...
AMEN!!!!! What an embarrasment to the family!!

I'm sure that this has made for some really proud parents. Anyone want to take a guess as to how many of these guys are from single parent households?
Why is it always the "single parent" that the blame is set on? Talk about a generalization! Many of us do not choose to be single parents and many of us raise upstanding, honerable children.

The single parents comments are uncalled for and placed by ignorants, or someone that wishes they were single. lol
As far as attacking the teens for their grammer,
it is done to us adults also, just teens cant take it.
Grand Haven is not becomming too dangerous, come on that was overkill.
If we all watch out for eachother a little more it would sure help.
Were there people standing by and watching and doing nothing that night?
Teens, if you're going to voice your opinion on here, act like adults and stop the whinning, it shows your age.
Have a good day all.

NORMAL people don't make these kinds of "mistakes". If you're defending these losers, then you're just as low as they are.

NORMAL people do not "have fun" this way. These losers deserve what they get. You're only as good as the people you hang with.

Ladle out the punishment generously, Judge...

Question:
Do they have any surveillance video of this fight?
Just wondering.
The press can only print the initial report and has very little other info.
Sometimes there is more to the story that cannot be released until after all the evidence is released.
Not saying these boys are guilty or innocent but just elaborating that there could be more to it.
We are innocent until "proven" guilty and that is ofter worked out in the court.

There was a fight at GH HS right at the end of the school year and the press reported a gang assault of one student.
That was the "initial" report.
The video was an entirely different scenario however.
That is why I ask if this was recorded.

Jake Leister has always been a super jerk to me in school. All he ever does is grabs at my penis all day, I mean seriously Jake I don't like u. And even if I did it could never be because my true love is the army. And we all know that the army doesn't except gays. So all your sexual urges towards me need to stop, because I really want to take after my dad and brother, they were super important to us winning the war in Iraq. I mean my dad and brother told me they would wait till the Marines kill all the terrorist and then they would go and collect all of their bodies. But enough about how my family is full of extremlly brave war heroes. Another one of the kids was a big drugy that was always trying to get me to smoke. Jesse Barranger was always tryin to get me to smoke pot with him. I mean seriously Jesse I want to be in the army, I obviously can't smoke with you that would ruin my whole future. And smoking pot is for losers because it super bad for you, it kills all of your brain cells. How am I supposed pick dead bodies up after the Marines kill everyone if I can't be super tactical and think geez seriously. But enough about Jesse. Kyle May is just a week little girl, he couldn't ever take me,I mean I am goin to be in the fricken army of course I am stronger than you. And Nick looks like he got beat in the face with a shovel. I hope these kids get punished for their super stupidity, but I got to go now I have to research about the army.
