The police say they have arrested the two Einsteins involved in the beating of the black Mulsim on election day:
Two Staten Island teen-agers have been arrested this morning in connection with the beating of a black Muslim teen, allegedly at the hands of a carload of white men furious over Barack Obama’s election victory.
Ralph Nicoletti, 18, of Wadsworth Avenue, Fort Wadsworth and Bryan Garaventa, 18, of Maryland Avenue in Rosebank, were arrested yesterday and charged with second-degree assault, a hate crime, and criminal possession of a weapon, according to police.
The only thing that stops me from writing some philippic about these idiots is the fact that they are, in the eyes of the law, innoncent until proven guilty. I guess we’ll have to wait.
And here is one of them now!
At the St. Patty’s Day Parade. Remember though, still only accused. However, something that is completely unrelated to the accused/convicted distinction is the level of intelligence/tolerance displayed in the article’s comments:
1) WTF5197, I think this is only the beginning…Remember how bad it got with dinkins as the mayor ?? Now they’ll have the chance to screw the whole country….I’ve never seen anybody that got beat up with a bat, and have as little injuries as he did…somethings FISHY !!
2) two stitches to close the “gash” in his head.. and now we hear about a concussion..get real, two stitches are used on a cut of less than a half inch, hardly a GASH, I hope that if the guys in custudy are found guilty they are punished to the fullest extent of the law, the bottom line is Ali sure is getting a lot of sympathy for injuries that most working people wouldnt even think twice about and most children get worse in the playground and dont bother to tell mom about.. play it up Ali… some lawyer will figure a way to get a jackpot out of all this.. but it could still be a drug deal gone bad… someone trying to rip someone off ? there’s two sides to this story. Maybe, just maybe the Advance will print the other side.
Just read them on the article’s page. I mean, does the Advance have no shame? If they had any sense of how stupid the seemingly unedited comment section makes the Island look then maybe they’d exert some control over it.
