Father of teen charged in Florida school bus beating says son is 'sorry'
The father of one of three Florida teens charged in a vicious school bus attack said his son is “sorry” for taking part in the July beating that made national headlines.Now, you have to read to the bottom of the article to find out that the three attackers were black and the one (younger) victim was white. Probably explains why there is no *other* coverage of this story anywhere else, either. I wonder when Hollywood stars will start making PSAs for the 13 year old beaten unconscious by three older thugs? Don't worry; I won't hold my breath.
As the trio headed to court on Tuesday, Julian McKnight said his son Julian, 15, has also suffered in the aftermath of the July 9 attack on a Pinellas County school bus after it left Lealman Intermediate School in the St. Petersburg-area community of Gulfport.
Here's the kicker, though:
“All I can say is that he had his consequences already, you know?” McKnight said. “This is life. I am sorry what happened to the victim. It's just the way it is. My son ain’t never been no bad person, he just got mixed [up] with bad people, that’s all … He’s sorry.”He's had his consequences already? Really? This is life? Excuse the living fuck out of me, but if three older boys jumped my son because he dared tell the school resources officer that they tried to sell him marijuana, the goddamn court system would be the very fucking least of their problems. Your kid is selling marijuana to fucking 13 year olds and committing assault and battery. He most fucking *IS* a bad person.
Naturally, I expect the three to walk and be personally apologized to by the mainstream media. The 13 year old will have to go into hiding and change his name. Imagine the fury if three older white boys had put a younger black kid in the hospital and then gotten slaps on the wrist over this. Tell me how racist we are when we look the other way when the victim is white.
As long as there is money to be made on racial strife, it will never end.
That is all.
