Geez... I feel bad for the victim and hope everyone involved pays for what they did, but contacting the FBI? Seriously?
They're trying to say his jaw was stapled shut at the hospital, right?
Remind yourself. Nobody built like you, you design yourself.
Pretty much this. If what is described by the victim is exactly what happened my sympathy goes out to him and hope the assailants are brought to justice. I will say though I do want to hear more facts and details come out before we rush to judge every part of the story. So far we haven't heard a word from the police or from anyone else at the party and based on the victim's statement it shouldn't be too hard to find that house and witnesses.
Yeah, that paragraph makes no sense.
No, according to the Channel 4 article, the kids stapled his lips shut after he was knocked unconscious
I think some of you mis read the story. His mouth was stapled at the hospital not duri g the fight. I'm curious to hear from other sources. Too many times have I seen similar situations where the kid fvcks up and makes a lame excuse to his parents whether it's an owi or this. Hey, it may have been a hate crime but if no one corroborates it with that many witnesses then I would hesitate to believe him.
The 2011 Birmingham Groves High School graduate says he was knocked unconscious. When he woke up, he says, he found a staple in his mouth.
"It was coming up in my two bottom teeth and it started in my gum, so, somehow they managed to staple it," Tennen said.

Something just feels fishy here. Almost unbelievable...
"Tonight, we show the world what this program is made of!" -- Brian Ellerbe on Mar 4, 2000, the night of scUM's 51-point loss to MSU.
I got jumped at a party in cedar village, only time I was ever jumped. Hooked up with hot chick at the bar, we leave to a party her "friends' were throwing. We were drunk, all over each other. Turns out the party was with everybody in the area from her hick small town, and there was history I didn't know about. I was only non-towner there. So we go to back bedroom, pass a bong, and the racism starts. I don;t stand for it, start talking a ton of shit. Am "escorted" out of the party, whole time, I know it's coming. Sure enough, get to the door and a bunch of dudes jump me. I know I connected on at least 5 big shots, only took two little bruises to my face, my knuckles were swollen and discolored the next morning, cops got called and fight broke up.
Bottom line, racists of all types are pussies who attack only when they feel they have the advantage. And I fucked up a couple of them, small town boys didn't know I know how the small town brain works.
"And they were making Nazi and Hitler symbols and they said they were part of the KKK," he said.
... What? And no one called police when they saw these kids kick the shit out of him? He had to take a cab, not an ambulance?
I smell bullshit.
Horrible story, if true.
I've seen people beat up before. His face looked remarkably good in that channel 4 interview after something that supposedly happened early AM Sunday
This is absolutely horrible. I seriously hope they get these m#therf#ckers. There is absolutely no room for that any where, any time. This may be the worst incident I have ever read about on MSU's campus.

How many fights happen after 1 am at party where people call the police?
I don't. This shit happens in EL, and sadly in a lot of college towns. Kids watch and let things go down. Do I think it was actually a hate crime? Probably not. But assholes sometimes like an excuse just to be their assholish selves.
“But after some guys at the house basically kicked me out, I had to get a cab.”
So he gets savagely beaten by KKK "Nazis" and has his mouth stapled shut. He then gets escorted out of the house and calls a cab?
Who the fuck does not call the police to:
1) Come to his aid.
2) Nail whoever was inside that house.

Might've been scared to get an MIP
so Cousin's is back in town?
This, in all honesty, could be a very realistic possibility.
Not according to the DetNews link.
I agree that we shouldn't jump to conclusions based just on the victim's side of the story. I'm not saying the victim isn't telling the truth, but we just don't know yet. Let's not forget that the Duke lacrosse case was originally called a hate crime.
That's a pretty huge bummer, if true. I would like more details, though. It seems unusually bold and savage.
Definitely an unusual story. Stapling somebody's mouth closed is an unusual form of assault that might intend to carry a specific message . Sounds like there is more here that we don't know.
Read some of the posts under the State News story. I learned that there is a category of people I didn't even know existed: "rape-craving homeless guys." WTF!?!
" Darko • 5 hours ago
... The guy was afraid to tell the truth about why he got beaten up so he concocted this ridiculous story.
Hitler symbols? That is hilariously fabricated. Can't remember ever seeing that, and I party with everyone on this campus from Lou Anna K Simon's girlfriend down to the crazy homeless dudes that crave rape.
There are no victims in this story. One idiot was stronger than the other idiot. That is all."
