The Campus and Kent Police need to do some very proactive policing. Make Kent an unpleasant place for these thugs to hang out. I went to Kent State, and it was a wonderful place. It's time to reclaim the city and the campus.

The 'Urkel' makeover didn't help this thug either. But, he will look good to Bubba when he arrives at the big house!

Maybe if he didn't do the freudian slip of saying liar instead of lawyer while he was on the stand he might have had a chance...LOL

Who am I kidding, he didn't have a chance either way! So much for a bright young man defense...lol..nice Erkel suit.

2 down 1 to go! Keep your thugs out of Kent please. We will throw them to the dawgs...in this case Bubba and the rest of his horny friends.

Glad to see that some folks saw through their lies and have given the parents of Chris some closure. The two "smart black boys" are going to prison for a long time. Maybe they should have though of the consequences before they stopped the car and went back.

The night Christopher Kernich was so ravagely beaten in Kent, many people stood around. Why didn't any of these witnesses step into help out? As I understand the location of this brutal assault took place in front of some frat houses. Where were the frat brothers? I cannot believe no one helped Chris K. and his friends beat off these murdering thugs. Was everyone just watching this happen? Maybe, it has come out in the stories but I don't recall reading anything.

Additionally, and most importantly, my prayers to the kernich Family for their horrific loss. There is no reason that this young man should have been beaten to death. The downtown Kent area, bars, etc...are nothing but seedy dumps and you don't read about all of the fights that break out. You would be shocked to know what really goes on down Water St. I think that Jefferson needs to pull some hard time, too. He isn't innocent...he was the driver, he made a choice to stop the car and is an accesory, in the beating death of Chris Kernich. I hope and pray they are all tormented for the rest of their lives with taking another persons life. This is sad for all families involved. This story is so sad on many levels. I noticed that there was no national attention, to this story, or the beating death of J. White another Kent State student beaten to death in January 2010 again in Kent, Ohio. The local news barely mentioned any of these stories. Why?

Why? Because it was black on white crime and not white on black. I think you knew that answer before I ever gave it.

Why no national attention? Maybe because in this NEW day and age the people in all parts of the country and the world are becoming Numb to these acts of violence.
The national TV media only spends less than a minute on each story. This story is AFTER the story and doesn't splash all over the News broadcast. Its yesterdays news, which never was the case years ago when the Newspapers that are now down to a few sections because they don't have the paying advertisements to cover the expenses to cover these stories or the paper to print it on.
