I think we need to not focus on the firefighters superb backround because every dog has his day. I'm tired of reading how cops and fire fighters are super duper in the community. Many of them are not. So leave it out. One person beat another person, case closed.

So three tough guys jump out of a car to teach an old man walking with his wife a lesson. I don't care what he said - we have three tough guys who wanted to be bullies - they wouldn't have pulled over if it had been a crowd of firefigters or if it had even been three, but one older guy, sure - lets kick his ass and teach him a lesson about yelling at us to slow down. Well now you will spend the next few years in jail and society will be better off without you on the street teaching people lessons. Its too bad we have to pay for your vacation, but its a cost that is worth paying.

Wait - so you've never drank / gotten drunk? Being drunk once in a while means you are not an upstanding member of the community? I guess running into burning buildings to save lives of people you don't know just can't trump being drunk, huh? Get real.

Justice ?
For the same crime, a black man gets life and a white man gets probation.

Hard to believe blacks make up the majority of inmates in our jail system.These guys said they're innocent but even their lawyers said they did it. Public defender?

Its tough to believe that these guys would get out of a car and beat a single man walking with his wife. Their calm courtroom demeanor, when they had to be restrained and taken from the room, is only proof that the verdict was correct. Animals belong in cages.

hmm, NY,NY, when jenna 6 beat a WHITE guy, the entire black community protested. Is it ok to beat people within an inch of their lives if your black? Is that the message? It's not ok no matter what color you are. Where is the humanity in this world? Why are young kids beating the hell out of each other? This is what the topic should be about. And what we can do to stop the hatred. Period.

knock it off. these kids nearly killed this guy.

if you make this statement EVERYTIME a black kid gets arrested/sentenced it undermines your argument. not everyone deserves your sympathy. these kids are an example of that.

I guess they didn't know that payback is a bitch! These three thugs will now spend some time in the hooskow! Thank god his wife got the plate number! Otherwise it would have been another senseless attack by babboons! Like one other commentor said: They would not have attacked if there were three firefighters present!These animals were out of prison for 24 hours prior to the beat down! Let's not be hasty about letting them go in the future!

Did not matter what he said or if he was intoxicated. You do not have a right to put your hands on some one else, little alone beat him within a breath hair of his life
