Let us not forget about the athletes/former athletes from Lebanon who vandalized a house and other property on Halloween weekend. They should have been taught better also.

haha, I can't understand why you are defending these guys to such an extent. There is no denying what they did. Five of them attacked one with a baseball bat and planned on robbing him. They need to be put in jail. Don't make this a racial thing. I acknowledge that white people have done things similar to this in the past and I will not defend them. I believe that they should be incarcerated as well. It has nothing to do with ethnicity; these guys committed a violent crime and should be punished.
uh huh

black white purple orange or yellow what the hell difference does it make.... Those kids made a mistake and what they did was wrong, and yes they should be punished for what they have done. If you want something that bad then get a damn job and make money if it's money you want or if it's some material thing you want then get a job and buy it!!!!

You're right, they should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. It was a heinous, senseless crime. But what I can't stand is when people get on here & make monsters of these kids. If you've ever had any interaction with Bob, you'd know that's not how he was raised. He made a mistake, now he has to pay for it. No need for anybody to get riled up & pull up just short of calling him any n!@@3rs or thugs, that's when I get lil defensive. No blood, no foul? It is just Topix, right?

Okay, I'm glad you're sensible unlike other people I've seen on here.

Regardless of what race or color they are, they should be tried for Criminal Assault. Five on one sounds a lot like they do here in KC.in certain areas. The victim could be more involved than we know also, maybe not, but I am sure it will come out when these guys go to trial. Really sorry to see such a fine University that has grown so much and done so much for so many locals get a Rap like this because of someones "Attitude". JM of KC

Yes, I'm sorry for the student that got hurt, and the players should have never done what they did but let's let the court system seal with it and keep our noses out of it. It isn't our place to speculate or ridicule or call names. It has nothing to do with color....it has to do with an assault on a fellow student and nothing more.
ROTFLMAO at this statement. Believe me if it had been 5 white guys beating up a black guy it would have been all about race. The laws are on the books for a reason and YES these 5 should be tried for HATE CRIMES.

I will agree it's a very sad day for UVA Wise, overall they are a great college.

There would have been a call to the NAACP and SCLC for protests and federal investigations. It would be on national TV. Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton. Obama would be called. Justice Dept. FBI. Lawmakers in Richmond would be flooded with calls for justice. Football coach would be asked to resign along with president of the university. A call would go out for all recruits that are black to boycott this university. And on and on and on..........

Color is not the issue, but the act itself.
What a shame that these young men who had the opportunity of a lifetime to get a quality education to make a better life for themselves have now thrown that opportunity away and if convicted will have this stupid, useless act follow them for the rest of their lives. Everytime they go to apply for a job they have jeopardized another opportunity. Stupid!!!!

SAD DAY for UVA Wise---not really, nobody pays any attention to this wanta-be school. UVA-Wise is a disgrace to UVA. I mean anybody can get admitted to that school unlike Charlottesville where you actually have to be intelligent.

Ya'll are some segregated and discriminated people! Ya'll are worse then the people that committed the crime. The victim of what happened isn't an angel. If you knew the people involved, they were good guys and caught up in the wrong time and place. Now if it was white on white crime then ya'll wouldn't say shit. Yes it was wrong for what they did but race and color had nothing to do with it. Not real mature
