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.
