Yeah, those comments at the bottom are pretty disgusting.

Sad but true.
Did you actually read the article past the headline? The title is very misleading.
It didn't happen on campus.
I have a very hard time believing a large number of Spartans would stand and watch a hate crime in progress without calling the cops or stepping in to break it up. Even if the kid's story is BS, it takes some really tough guys to to gang up and beat the crap out of a wimpy kid.
The title of this thread is inaccurate and unfortunate. The incident didn't take place "at MSU" (or "on campus" as several others have posted). The 500 block of Spartan is more than a half mile from campus. It's the first block south of Burcham, in the heart of East Lansing. It would be just as accurate to say that an MSU student was attacked at East Lansing High School.
That comment section is despicable.

A large majority of East Lansing north of Grand River to Burcham is occupied by MSU students. In fact I lived in apartments on Burcham for a year as a student. No, it's not on campus but it's a very good bet there were MSU students involved and of course the victim is a student.
You're not being fair. Read the article and then make up your mind about this judge. Stupid post, phenomenally unfair to the judge.
The closer you get to Burcham, the less that's true. Regardless, time will tell if other students were involved. I don't know if I'd call it a "very good bet."
I think the strangest thing about this is that the kid, unconscious after a beating, was able to get a cab to the hospital at 1:00 in the morning on the 500 block of spartan. I would have to wait at least 45 minutes to grab one from grand river and that's when I am even conscious. Try calling a cab at 1:00 am during welcome week, youre gonna be waiting a while. Something seems strange about this, and the writer for the state news is total garbage and the details are hard to understand. Obviously, if true then this is beyond terrible. I guess I want for it to be false because I hate to think that these things happen at msu.
These are my principles. If you don't like them, I have others.
Yep. This part of the story is pretty strange. If he was beaten that bad, an ambulance is called for.
Have you ever considered a career in writing?
So, there isn't a police report in EL. Sparrow says that if they see assault they call the cops. Does that mean they didn't call the cops?
If this is true, I hope those kids are found and put in prison for a long time.
Still, there's a lot of weird details to this one. Staples? Someone would have to go back in the house to get a stapler and then did they open his mouth and staple his gums? It doesn't seem like they went through his lips. It seems unlikely.
Sparty is our mascot, we are Spartans.
The staples were at the hospital. The writer is an idiot.
He was knocked out and had his mouth stapled, came to and called a cab, with a jaw broken in two places all while being showered with KKK insults and Nazi salutes? Something doesn't add up here.
Remind yourself. Nobody built like you, you design yourself.
If you were knocked cold forget staples. I'd just cut your stupid fucking tongue out of your head. Maybe take some fingers too so we wouldn't have to put up with your inbred rantings on here as well.

I think the kid might be unclear as well. The article from channel 4 seems to state that it was done at the party.
Either way, there are plenty of racists and assholes in every college, so it seems possible. But I'd think they'd be a lot more subtle about it than what this kid is claiming.
The details of this story are all very odd. It'll be interesting to find out what actually happened.
I'm most interested in seeing the overall reaction to this incident. I'm completely confident the MSU community will respond in the best way possible. Obviously I hope for the best for the injured student.
Players play, tough players win.
why have the mods not added "alleged" to the title of this thread?
another example of being asleep at the wheel and ngaf about MSU
We've got depth. We've got numbers.
I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
I never understood what there is to hate about Jews. I mean sure, they like the money, but who doesn't? amitrite?
THEY KILLED JESUS!
