COVINGTON, La. —Covington police arrested two people Thursday in connection with the beating of a teen with autism

On Friday, a 17-year-old with autism was walking home from the library when two boys approached him from behind. One of the boys struck him, breaking his jaw, police said. The teen needed surgery and is recovering from his injuries.

Due in large part to the overwhelming assistance from the public, two 14-year-old boys were identified and arrested in connection with the case.

Because they are minors, their punishment will be practically zero.

It's a "If-you-choose-not-to-decide-you've-still-made-a-choice" kinda thang.

My money is on them being Laplanders. Why you ask? Because they are so underrepresented in American crime that eventually the answer will have to be Laplanders...............or Blacks, either of the two are underreported in American crimes.

It’s NOT a game!

It’s a CRIME!

Call it what it is, not “knockout game”, “Knockout CRIME”!

No not really. This happened in St. Tammany parish, which is also referred to as St. Slammany parish. We got some hangin judges over here.

I trust that this ‘sport’ - the knockout ‘game’ - is represented at Obama’s concussion symposium. Yeah, right...

“Still no description of perps.”

Yes, there is. The headline clearly said “Teens”. That word is used exclusively for Amish male between 10 and 40.

In Texas, this is aggravated assault, a felony.

That’s why you don’t press charges. I would tell the judge I want them on the street. and then just stare at them.

Justice will come when I choose.

We’re used to it now. When the media deliberately and intentionally hides the race of violent criminals, we know who they are talking about.

Probably society failed these “teens” by not providing enough “midnight basketball” or some other such BS.

Knock knock game should have life imprisonment or execution regardless of the age of the cowardly thugs that attack from behind with out-sized odds

This is not a game, and we should never refer to it in that way.

We have longtime posters who have lost jobs so that wouldn’t work. FR has always used “the honor system” where everyone who is able to contribute does so. However some rather liberal ideas have invaded and some posters think it’s okay to “let someone else” donate.
