Skip to comments.MSU Student's Mouth Stapled Shut In Horrific Hate Crime.
Posted on 09/25/2012 3:38:43 PM PDT by Morgana
Zachary Tennen, a 19-year-old sophomore at Michigan State University, was at an off-campus party when two college-aged men approached him and demanded to know if he was Jewish.
When Zachary said he was, the men made a Hitler salute, said they were part of the Ku Klux Klan, and beat him unconscious, breaking his jaw in the process.
While he was knocked out, one of them stapled the boys mouth shut while guests at the party watched. No one intervened or called the police instead, the other guests kicked Zachary out of the house the moment the 19-year-old came to.
Zachary is scheduled for surgery this week, but his trials are far from over. As East Lansing police try to find the men who assaulted him, department spokesmen claim they dont believe the attack was a hate crime, and are refusing to investigate it as such.

Since the KKK was chartered as an arm of the democrat party I would say the first place to look for the suspects is the local union and democrat party headquarters.
This wasn’t a hate crime. It was a bunch of drunks at a party.
Motive is not an element if crime. We may now punish it, but that doesn’t make it a crime. That merely makes the legal system u just.
I think this was from some time ago and there are a lot of questions regarding a lack of witnesses and such.
Journalism sophomore, off campus party, unidentified party... Why does this smell like yet another fake?
Good grief, if it wasn’t motivated by hate why would they ask him if he was Jewish?
Ever get the feeling something in the story is just a little too pat, like that Professor who claimed she was getting death threats and a video was found of her hanging a noose on her own door? I get that feeling in this story. Something’s fishy.
Police also have no evidence that Tennen's mouth was stapled as he maintains, Murphy said.
Murphy said Tennen felt a wire in his mouth that he believed was a staple.
"We haven't found anything about staples. ... This was one punch to the mouth," the police captain said.
The KKK was ALL DEMOCRATS!!!!!
I’ve been watching this one in the news and there doesn’t appear to be any there there.
My impression is that the kid got drunk and got his butt kicked and needed a cover story and is now afraid to back down.
On the OTHER hand, Michigan has a sizable population of Muzzies.
Amish bishop Samuel Mullet Sr. was convicted yesterday of federal hate crimes and conspiracy for exhorting followers to forcibly shear the hair and beards of those who opposed his breakaway Ohio sect. Mullets three sons, his daughter and 11 other family members and followers in his ultra-strict Amish order 100 miles southeast of Cleveland also were convicted of conspiracy and hate crimes after a trial that attracted international attention. The 66-year-old bishop could face life in prison for his crimes.
Why not give this kid the benefit of the doubt unless and until the investigation reveals he made the story up?
For starters, who was at that party? Among all of them, they should be able to find at least one witness.
If it really went down as he claimed, then I think Tennen must have been an unwelcome guest at the party. If so, it was probably something he said.
Don't interpret my speculation as condoning what happened. Furthermore, someone should have intervened -- no matter how far out-of-line they thought Tennen might have been.
Thanks, I was wondering how soon someone would try to score political points over this story, if true.
KKK or sons of pig f’n dogs; what is the difference? Still democrat supporters with like views.
He apparently just got his ass kicked.
I believe this story was shown to be half BS. He got punched at a drunken party, but police did not find evidence of many of his claims.
If anyone actually did beat this kid up, they were likely Muslims and certainly not Republicans nor right wingers.
Michigan does? How much?
May be made up; yet to be seen. Don’t bet that if true it won’t be promoted as an attack by “right wing” (read GOP) extremists.
Meanwhile in Ann Arbor a judge just handed down a restraining order against a kid who got his ass kicked by several members of the UofM hockey team.
Yeah he got his butt kicked but good but then he shouldn’t have been stalking the ex girlfriend he beat up a few days earlier.
There were competing KKK operations in the 1920s.
The KKK in the immediate post Civil War period was dedicated to corraling Negroes and murdering Republican politicians. The KKK in the 1920s was dedicated to supremacy over Negroes, Catholics and Jews ~ giving it an entirely different flavor.
Today's KKK is mostly irrelevant.
I'm betting nothing . . . your comment simply was like "blaming it on the "local union and democrat party headquarters."
“Police also have no evidence that Tennen’s mouth was stapled as he maintains, Murphy said.”
Well,,,, with my experience with staplers,,,, the kid would have to have really, really thin lips for them to be stapled shut.
Michigan ranks about 6th in the muslim population of the USA. I believe NY tops the list.
A little web research revels that this article is a little over board. The police investigation states one punch no hitler salutes no witness to the mouth stapling etc. One suspect questioned but not arrested yet.
I would agree with that, mostly irrelevant, except when the democrat party ties them to conservatives.
Knee-jerk reactions are just that, just sayin’,
even the ADL says not a hate crime. now the kid and the parents are silent.
clearly someone punched him, but witnesses and that he (zach) was drinking and knocked unconscious could have tinkered with his memory.
the news media can’t find him, but he’s twittering away
“I am a self-proclaimed NBA expert. Don’t compare me to anybody else.”
If that kid acts like that every day I imagine its not the first or last time he gets his butt kicked.
These police are effing stupid.
This was his tweet about the incident. (aug 26th)
“I’d really appreciate a retweet. I got my jaw fractured by 2 kids as a hate crime and they stapled inside my mouth.”
“@mcuban tweeted me? No way! One of my biggest supporters is @DirkRoberts, but what about Nowitzki? I’d like to hear from him! “ (aug 29th)
Someone started a support FB page for him, but the lasts posts are around the time (Sept. 6th), that witnesses were saying something different, a lot different and apparently he was walking party row, and no one in that house knew him. It happened out on the sidewalk in front. Plenty of more differences than Zach’s recollection. His father was very vocal, now they both have shut up.
He was apparently assaulted (while drinking underage), with one punch. That punch could have killed him. The alleged perp is 18 and hasn’t been arrested yet. The media of course, hyped the story and when the investigation to a hate crime turns up no Nazi-hate-crime, the MSM has moved on. The MSM has a duty to follow up.
When I go to off-campus parties to drink, I always carry a stapler. You never know when you’ll have to prepare a report.
I was just wondering what the Septuagint said to do in the case of a Jew being shown to be a lying p*ssy:
16 If a malicious witness takes the stand to accuse someone of a crime,
17 the two people involved in the dispute must stand in the presence of the LORD before the priests and the judges who are in office at the time.
18 The judges must make a thorough investigation, and if the witness proves to be a liar, giving false testimony against a fellow Israelite,
19 then do to the false witness as that witness intended to do to the other party. You must purge the evil from among you.
20 The rest of the people will hear of this and be afraid, and never again will such an evil thing be done among you.
21 Show no pity: life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
I’ll believe it when I see the police report and photos. Sound legit to me so far. Really I do kinda believe it because kids have gotten so out of control anymore noting surprises me.
Moreover, imagine using a Swingline stapler to staple the lips shut of someone resisting it being done to them. It takes both my wife and I to administer one single pill to an 18 pound housecat, with me pinning the little bastard down like I'm an NFL outside linebacker trying to strip the ball fat the bottom of a dogpile, so you know trying to staple the lips of a grown man intent on preventing it from happening would be harder than trying to pour a whole bottle of Robitussen down the throat of a harbor seal.
Police also have no evidence that Tennen's mouth was stapled as he maintains, [Lt.] Murphy said.
"There's a lot more to it than what is on the surface," he told The Associated Press.
He said something to the effect that hed been stapled, but theres nobody that saw anything like that," Murphy said. "And the witnesses that watched the assault happen didnt see a stapler and indicated to us there was no way the suspect could have done anything with a stapler because it was one punch to the face and the suspect left the area. We havent determined how he got that piece of metal in his mouth. But it was not put there by the suspect."
It is never a “HATE CRIME” if a muzzie that does it. I expect more of this in Michiganstan.
“It takes both my wife and I to administer one single pill to an 18 pound housecat,”
Big cat! I usually wrap mine up with a bath towel, with just their head sticking out. Saves a lot of wear and tear! A pill shooter is a must! Years ago, a friend in Milwaukee had two “Super Cats.” One weighed 42 pounds, and was not fat at all! Was as big as a medium-sized dog! They used to knock over furniture when they were playing with each other! The little one only weighed 30 pounds, and, again, was not fat.
Maybe you should think more and expect less. Many states have far larger muslim populations.
Because "they" didn't......look for the original thread. His lips weren't stapled shut either, he was drunk and was punched out while at a party over some chick.......
Regarding the stapling, in the news interview he stated that he found a staple lodged in his gums......
Name them. No other state kotows to the muzzies more than Michiganstan!
Maybe you like sharia law?
