I know these people and this is absolutely ridiculous that she had to contact the local news station (that many of us told her to do anyways) so that maybe the police department would take this seriously! The fact that adults were involved with his major injuries infuriates me! Takes time? really? I bet if Jake would have cause this damage he would have been arrested immediately!!

Wow!! That is so sad :(!! It's so scary that a teenage issue gets so out of hand. I think that takes bullying to a new level.:( I'm sorry Jake, even though I don't know you, I'll keep you in my prayers.

Okay it takes 30 to 60 people to settle a dispute between 2 teens and the big brave adult knocking him to the ground so the rest of these parasites could beat him to a pulp. What a frigging joke! I don't care what Jake did or didn't do, this mob lusting for his blood need to have the $ h ! t kicked out of them and have the keys thrown away on all of them.

Absolutely insane! Where are the photos of these mobsters? Ugggh!

The subject doesn't look like the perfect law bidding citizen, or is that just me?

Are you kidding me? What are you saying? His looks give these arsholes the right to beat him half to death! He "looks" like a typical teenager, or does he have to have a particular look to save his ars from these thugs. Geezus Krist!

Wonder if some of the adults who attacked the 16 yr old are friends/relatives with any of the police dept. personnel? Does Chief Kish send every case through the prosecutor and grand jury? Have to wonder why the hesitation to effect the arrests in this situation?

As always, not enough information to make a judgement - "adults" could be some 18 year old friends of the other faction; might even be high school students themselves, and NO - this crooked-hat, pants-sagging punk doesn't look all that innocent himself - without rushing to pre-judge it sounds like two groups of gang-bangin' wannabes had themselves and good ole' fashioned rumble.... this kid just came out on the wrong end... lesson learned? Not likely....

More than likely it was his mouth or ridiculous posturing, not his clothes. As one who kicked some butt and had his kicked on more than one "football night" in high school many years ago, the problem isn't the fighting, its the parental response. My parents responded by kicking my butt again for fighting, not running to the po-po because their "poor little boy" was wounded - PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY - that's what's not being taught here..... and BTW, a busted jaw ain't "half to death".....

Okay, point well taken! Where does it say 30 to 60 thugs have the right to jump him for his posturing? How about 1 on 1 or is that just old school? Absolutely ridiculous.

Earlier in the year this same kid got hit by a drunk driver on darrow rd in may and this is the crap u people have to say about him, he is a good kid at heart, and somebody needs to stick up for him and his rights. Shame on all of u whom think jake deserved this in anyway. Shame on the family who did this to him. Most of all shame on the city for not doing there job and protecting these kids better. kids will be kids and they will fight but it is time to say enough is enough when full grown adults get involved in a battle to the extent they did. Some of those adults r the same adults allowing and providing local teens with drugs and alcohol in this area and it is well known and yet police do nothing , what is this city comming to???

For all we know Jake could have been bullying this kid all year and the kid being bullied took revenge! The real problem is Jake's parents! Maybe its time to become real parents and teach your son whats right and wrong in life and how to act like a responsible human being! I'm sure he just wasn't some innocent victim in this whole thing!

you know what, the little bad a.. got what he deserved. these kids are out of control today, and it't time for the parents to take control back instead of cry like this woman when her
"baby" got more than he bargined for. he knew he shouldn't have been there and know his mouth is shut!!! you want to be a bad a.. and think your a man, than take your beating like a man!!! and mama shut up, you re why he is the way he is stupid little a..hole i m sure he didn't respect you. be glad he took a whopin maybe now he ll change.

My son is constantly being picked on and don't think for one second he will not defend himself. I've called the authorities to alert them of the bad apples in our neighborhood only to find that my son is not to go down to that end of the street. Is this what our system is coming to??? The bad kids can rule the streets, but make the good ones that are excellent students stay at home like a prisioner...Great job to the way that we have to wait for the justice system to work :)

see parents fail to realize today to teach their kids, that you get respect with respect, you get out of pocket i'll put you back in my pocket, you act your age, i'll treat you your age, you act like your grown, then you'll be treated like your grown. take responsiblity for your actions, and today kids think they are free to do whatever say whatever, act however without consiquences. If my kid did this, his worry would be when his wounds healed and what knew wounds he'd have once he came home to me!!!! it s all about respect, and that starts with yourself. they see no respect, they have no respect, you get no respect!!! mama should bash his mouth in when he comes home

Jodi, why should he stay home like a prisoner? why would you want him to go into harms way? there are plenty of postive activities to involve your son in, so don't blame the police, they didn't father or mother these animals, blame yourself if you put him in harms way, and blame those who don't provide these little animals with the proper guidence. You know commen sense plays a big part here. my kids are in sports, music, theatre, they don't have time to worry about going to the end of the street to find the trouble it may hold
