Please tell me why Chalkley suddenly is willing to try a defendant for their crime. Omar is of Arab descent and I feel that definitely factors into the attorney's decisions.
I think everyone can remember the preacher who left his 3 year old daughter in a car to die and received less than a year of jail time, if any, and 200 hours of community service. Shameful public behavior.

Everyone is absolutely ridiculous. You being a friend of Omar would know that he is prone to violently overreacting at times even if he is barely provoked. He should seek psychiatric analysis and obtain help, but charging a sixteen year old as an adult would be ridiculous for this crime.
Omar hurt Austin, but Austin really should not be this pitied. Believe me Life Term, if you value intelligence, Austin would not deserve this extent of defense. You obviously have never come in contact with him. How dare you fight online with teenagers expecting them to act like they have achieved undergraduate degrees! You really are ridiculous. Do something better with your time like host a Klan meeting because everyone can clearly see you are racist. However you said that you are fine with that so live your life.
Try him as a juvenile and get him help. That Austin is not going to leave Mechanicsville anyways so the scar will not be that debilitating and believe me it did not put a dent in anything attractive. He lived, did not learn a lesson and he can still chew tobacco with the hole in his face.
Despite where you fall on the political spectrum all of you are ridiculous.
i agree with you, omar should get help and not be put in prison, which would undoubtedly make things worse.

I am not defending Austin. However, I am going after the attacker with full force. He knew what he was doing. Did you not know what you were doing at sixteen years of age? I certainly did; and was ready to stand trial for my actions. Funny, I never struck anyone in the face with an ax. I did manage to get in a few fights. I lost some, and I won some; but never pulled a knife, gun, or ax on anyone. Moreover, when does one accept responsibility in this life WWW? I was taught to accept it from the start. Let me think for a secondÖI have no debt, studied hard, work hard, have a beautiful family, serve my faith and my country in the military, and have no apologies for holding others to a higher standard. Seems to me I have achieved the American dream. Wow, and to think I did it from a financially meager beginning, with nothing but two upstanding, debt free, all American parents, that demanded responsibility and accountability from their son. You know, it seems to me, I am a lot better off than the lot of you! No, know I am sure of it; I am 100% better off than the lot of you! If nothing else, I understand the definition of honor, accountability, valor, and integrity. Oh yes, and the difference between right and wrong.

Post script: Cool Story Bro: you might have to look the definition to those words up. I am quite sure you have not studied their meaning in public school. Itís alright, they didnít teach them to me in public school either. My family did. Teach your children these things parents. Otherwise, you destroy what little future we all have left; and you are left with social idiots who make excuses for everyone and their evil transgressions.

do you need attention?=(

every one of your comments has basically done nothing except describe how smart you think you are, and how dumb everyone else is.

the facts still stand: omar was provoked, and acted in self defense. even if it was not a good means of defense, it was still self defense.

i completely agree, the fact that omar is not white probably plays a large part in this case. i remember hearing a story where a man shot his wife dead in cold blood and got ten years in prison. now they have this case where an arab kid defends himself and they want to put him in prison for life. hanover county.

I cannot believe what I am hearing! Listen up you ignorant racist individuals. For clarification, I am speaking to the Black segment of our society. You are now going to defend an individual who attacked another individual with a lethal weapon, with obvious intent to kill? Moreover, you continue to concern yourselves with why normal society thinks of you as animals? The fact is, racism is acceptable as long as it is directed towards the white man. Is that it? Certainly, we have given you nothing for over 400 years right? You have your idiot in the White House now. What do you have to show for it? What have you done? Why are you people still crying wolf? Why are you still playing the race card. Shut up already!!! We are tired of hearing about it. You make yourselves out to be second class citizens. We don't need to help in the cause, believe me! The majority of your young population are a disgrace on the plight of us all. Get an education and become productive members of society.
obviously you are not a christian. this vile attack upon people of color will not be tolerated in a civilized society. you are a hater and deserve to be isolated to an island by yourself. your comment do not impress at all. you need Jesus along with some professional counseling. hate breeds hate and that curse has followed you into adulthood. you have a deliberate "darth vader" persona.

Ok, Cool Story Bro:
Can you form a collective sentence with substance? I am hesitant to ask of you any further effort, as I am quite positive you are incapable of formulating structured text. Do you have any deep intellect at all? Or is it you are defending a friend? Either way, please refrain from looking like a total idiot when trying to confront an intellectual. My suggestion to you is as follows: Stay in school, and graduate with a standard High School Diploma. Moreover, try not to play with those who have earned a right to participate in civilized society and discussion. Translation: Grow Up Son!

To what degree to you find that I object to a vocabulary word idiot? I am sick and tired of engaging in an open debate with you. You want to call me a racist; I am fine with that. I judge the actions of a group accordingly. The difference between yourself and I is quite simple. I take responsibility for my actions. I hold others accountable for their actions. I care not what sterotype others may place on my person. The fact is, I judge accordignly. If you think that I am damaged by such commentary, you are a larger moron than I initially judged you to be. When you damage the reputation of your family, you damage the reputation of generations of your offspring. Listen up idiot; you are nothing but a vile disgrace to your own family.

BTW, Life Term, you are not the majority. Have a little respect for the office of the presidency. Virginia is a purple state. The problem with you far right,conservative extremists is that you are supposed to be Christians. You neither act christian-like nor do you speak intelligently. Fine to disagree with current policy but stop spewing hate. I bet you watch Glen Beck and believe everything he says. Try listening to both sides for a true "fair and balanced" opinion.
Shame on you. I watch all of the shows too. What I see is that liberals like you use every opportunity to politicize everything you can. Why bring Beck or Fox into the discussion? I'll tell you why; you have an axe to grind. Fox has destroyed the liberal domination of news dissemination in our country and liberals HATE that - and Fox - and its viewers.

This case is about a bully who was hit with an axe by the victim. The bully was of course very wrong, but the victim was also very wrong in how he reacted to it. Our laws still apply to all citizens. Even though I feel sorry for the victim of the bullying, he can't hit someone with an axe. If the racial roles were reversed, would you still feel the same way toward the kid who used the axe? Maybe you need to examine your own conscience.

My child overheard the victim talking about it at Hanover. He knows who is to blame in this one. Too bad the kid is now at Hanover. When parents approach the adminisrators about bullying...it should be "0" tolerance and if it continues the police should be involved. This child was not raised with decency. Why are parents consistenly pulling away from saying "no" and trying to empower their kids with everything or nothing. Take them to church once in a while... parents teach your kids the bacics like politeness, kindness for others and respect. Although I do not at all believe what Omar did was right - I wonder how many kids the bully provoked?
