HIGH SCHOOL ATTACK: KERRY TAUNTS TIED TO FIGHT
Wed Nov 10 2004 09:55:52 ET
Three high school students face charges for using a bat to beat another student who taunted them about being John Kerry supporters days after the contentious election.
The 17-year-old Apple Valley victim was assaulted Thursday in a Minnesota Zoo parking lot near Apple Valley's School of Environmental Studies, better known as the zoo school. Chad McKay, also 17, stood over the victim attempting to protect him.
"It's a good thing to see young people interested and excited about politics," said Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom. "It's obviously very disturbing to see this kind of violence over it."
The SAINT PAUL PIONEER PRESS reported in morning editions: The argument began earlier in the day Thursday with a discussion about candidates the minors had supported for president, Backstrom said. The two victims supported President Bush.
"We were sitting in the computer room at school, and there was kind of a political debate," said Chad McKay of Arden Hills. "Some people said only gay people vote for Bush." Chad said the victim said "only gay people would vote for Kerry because he supports gay marriage."
Backstrom said the victims then "called the other guys some names."
Chad said later in the afternoon when he and the victim were walking to their cars they heard their three senior classmates yelling at them, according to the police report.
Chad got to his car, but the three 17-year-olds attacked the victim, he said, hitting him in face, including with a baseball bat and kicking him. One boy had a padlock wrapped around his finger, Chad said.
Such nice tolerant liberals, huh? Typical bitter Kerry supporters, quashing free speech with a baseball bat.
You must remember Bush supporters outnumber Kerry supporters so they needed the baseball bats to make it a fair fight.
Well, the libs are just getting the kind of world they desire for our young people - if somebody disagrees with you, they deserve to be beat upon (kind of like the fat DJ guy wanting to slash tires when seeing a Bush-Cheney bumper sticker).
If you preach hate and remove prayer, this is where you land. Way to go, liberal fruit cakes! Another amoral victory!
Add this to the story about the sixth grade girl who was attacked by a seventh grade girl in North Carolina because she said that her parents voted for the President.
Must be part of the "Peace thru nonviolent means" crowd! The party of love peace diversity and tolerance!!
"It's a good thing to see young people interested and excited about politics,"
Yeah, so were the Union and Confederates.
demoncRATS = Zero tolerance for others opinions
Obviously members of the FUTA (Future Union Thugs of America).
Ah, the party of tolerance...
Guess the victim learned a valuable lesson... never discuss politics with left-wing fanatics.
What the H-E-Double Hockey Sticks kind of quote is that!!! It's more than disturbing, Mr. Backstrom. This guy must be a Democrat. If the kids with the bat were for Bush, this District Attorney would be calling it a "hate crime" and asking for life imprisonment for the perps.
DEMOCRATS appear to be the most violent and mentally unstable in this election. Very few, if any, of these incidents have involved conservatives as the perpetrators. Most conservatives know better. There's that right and wrong thingy. Moral values, ya know.
Yeah, the DNC and the Left are just chock full of tolerance and peace--NOT!!!
I hope they are okay. The people responsible for this need to go to jail.
this is what the left has alway been and always will be about. we kicked *ss at the polls, it's time to do it in the streets.
Goodness. Just think what will happen when these kids are old enough to actually vote.
Assault with a deadly weapon - put 'em under the jail.
Democrat = Criminal
Readin', writin', and animal husbandry?
Aggravated assault. The assailants ought to be certified as adults, prosecuted, and sent to prison to do hard time.
It sure has become that. The Clinton's made associating with criminals and criminal behavior socially and politically (at least on the left) acceptable. So glad that I left the Left behind.
Either this gets under control, or we are going to have to do something serious about it.
It's a complete failure of our media and the school systems.
South Carolina. Rock Hill.
I sure hope these Oh-So "Tolerant Teens" enjoy being the bitches of some oppressed, under-educated, bench-pressing Inner City Thugs.
Ooops. You're right. Thanks for pointing that out.
Nice tolerant liberals ... the party which yells "Tolerance!" in our faces every chance they get .. the meltdown of the Left continues.
And where did these kids learn the rabidness of support for the dem?
Those libs better be careful...they come after the wrong person with a baseball bat and they'll end up full of holes.
and there it is...
Even during the "taunting" phase, the Republican gets it right (or at least has a better grasp on what their party stands for).
You left something out...."without carrying a firearm or a decent weapon"
I'll bet the orders for the hit came directly from Clinton.
Liberalism is a political alignment of peace...
I agree - it's a very disturbing reaction to this news.
ends do not justify the means, but try telling that to the 'liberal' folks who think incinerating flags, throwing pies at speakers, ripping up and stealing yard signs, and breaking windows at Starbucks are all valid forms of political expression.
Is this a story from 1930's Germany.... these are heart breaking history lesson. Can you imagine having Nazis in our society that would beat others up and break the law to push their socialist agenda?.... imagine if democrats in this country acted like Nazis... by the way, what is the date of this story?
More like the Party with a Piece - although I guess bats will have to replace guns as we all know guns are bad, bad, bad!!
It's not surprising when you see how the leaders of the party act. Hilary's famous screeming rant, Howard Dean, Al Gore, and how about Lawrence O'Donnell"s total meltdown. Then you have Carville, Bugala,etc., not a civil person in the whole lot.
And don't forget the vandalism/intimidation, tire slashing of voter cars and vans on election morning, and rocks and incendiary devices thrown threw the windows of Republican headquarters across the nation.
Democratic cheerleaders like CarVILE, Lanny Davis, Maureen Dowd, Paul Begala, Lawrence O'Donnell, Paul Krugman, Michael Moore (Moore is a DEM according to the Smoking Gun site) are the instigators of this hate, condecension, and dehumanizing of conservatives. They can deny it all they like, but I hold them personally responsible for inciting the unstable lefties to hate so much they committ these acts of violence.
Yeah, there's a few idiot right-wingers, but the majority of conservatives denounce and then shun the criminals, corrupt and morally-bankrupt politicians, ultra-conspiracy looneys, racists and bigots among them. We hold them accountable for their actions. (Gee, what a concept!)
Not so with the lefties. The Left always finds an excuse (society and those evil, stupid Christian Bushies made them do it) to shrug their shoulders at lefties being bad. However, should a conservative so much as say what's on their minds politically or dare to believe in God and a defined sense of right and wrong, it's a hate crime, punishable by the harshest judgement available.
Said it before and we'll say it again, stupid people don't have much to base their political opinions on. Whereas they could not beat up the president, they certainly could take out their anger on one of his supporters.
Wouldn't surprise me in the least to learn that they also painted over campaign signs, threw stones in businesses' windows, keyed cars, or otherwise sought to intimidate conservative voters through violence and vandalism.
They'd better be careful when the Silent Majority break out the guns in self defense of life, liberty, and the American government. The left is anti-Constitutional government. The radical left is at least honest about wanting to overthrow the 3 branches for a anarchist-socialist Utopia.
I defer putting down the left to law enforcement, but I advise them to shoot violent rioters "to kill".
The ACLU wouldn't have remained quiet if the roles were reversed an Republicans were spray painting swastikas on signage and homes, let alone smacking up teenagers, shooting up campaign offices, vandalizing offices, and stealing computers.
I wonder how much DNC leadership had in this national campaign of violence. RICO? Where are you???
How do you including wtith a baseball bat?
I understand the hitting but the including with a baseball bat gets me.
Hey, give them Hillary's number She'll be looking for some help for her next campaign.
Them rats are it again.
HEY! I resent dat in-sin-ewe-ation! I'll have youse know dat I busted my hump dis past election, ya no-good bastid. I'd beat da crap oughta ya, if I wasn't on a friggin' break.
