MSU Student Knocked Unconscious, Mouth Stapled Shut In Alleged Hate Crime
CBS Detroit ^ | August. 28, 2012

Posted on 08/28/2012 10:52:52 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

EAST LANSING (WWJ) - A Michigan State University student is recovering after he was beaten up and had his mouth stapled shut during what investigators are categorizing as a brutal hate crime.

Zachary Tennen, a 19-year-old sophomore in MSU’s journalism program, said he was at a house party on the 500 block of Spartan Avenue early Sunday morning when two men approached him and asked if he was Jewish. When he responded “Yes,” the two men raised their arms into a Nazi salute and said “Heil Hitler” before knocking him unconscious, according to Tennen’s mother, Tina.

About 20 people reportedly watched as the men proceeded to staple Zachary Tennen’s mouth shut at the lips and gums. His jaw was broken in two places during the attack.

I am sickened by the description of this event the 20 soulless people standing silently by and watching this happen. How can even one decent person remain silent?

No idea what’s behind this incident, but it sounds like a really weird incident, or was reported oddly.

Why was he attacked? Why were there 20 people there? Why did they kick him out of a house after the attack? Did people help him or not? Why would attackers even have a stapler? Don’t think I’ve heard that one before.

He has a broken jaw, so something happened.

About 20 people reportedly watched as the men proceeded to staple Zachary Tennen’s mouth shut at the lips and gums. His jaw was broken in two places during the attack.

And then the crowd of 20 intervened and beat the attackers to a pulp. Oh wait, no, they just stood there then later kicked Tennen out of the house.

What the *$&# ?!?!

This does not have the usual hallmarks of a hoax - multiple potential independent witnesses, injuries that are very difficult to inflict on yourself.

There is something strange here. Twenty people witnessed this and not one dialed 911 on his cell phone? What kind of people wouldn’t call the police when this happened?

Doesn’t Detroit have a large butt-sniffing muslime population?

If so, perhaps these 20 people were mostly muslime.

If you are a muslime you can’t help a “Jooooo.”

I am curious about the ethnic breakdown of the 20 people and the criminals that did the deed.

The police say others helped him to the hospital, contrary to his quoted statement.

Also from the article:

“They knocked me down really hard … and I assumed someone would help me,” Zachary Tennen said in a statement. “But after some guys at the house basically kicked me out, I had to get a cab.”

What house is he talking about that kicked him out? Maybe bad reporting or more to this story.

My girlfriend had her mouth wired shut one time, she had to carry a pair of wire cutters with her in case she got sick and had to throw up.

Hope they catch the SOBs, they can continue their studies from a jail cell for a nice long time.

Thank the Lord for gun-free campuses. This is a savage act, and if there were truly 20 people watching it unfold, it’s much more disgusting.

Just saw the report was in the Detroit Free Press and the incident was in East Lansing. Regardless, I am still curious as to the description of the criminals and the 20-witnesses. . .no description provided of either. . .odd.

Since this was reported as a “hate crime”, we’ll have to assume that the perps were white.

If they were any other “race”, it could not have been a hate crime.

East Lansing is almost 100 miles from Detroit.

It is a university town of less than 50,000 people and most of the local population are German/English/Irish by background.

Well, I'm sure most of them did use their cell phones - but only to videotape the beating for a quick upload to YouTube.

By this time tomorrow, the two attackers will be ex-military Liberty University graduates and Tea Party/NRA members volunteering for Romney who once worked at Chick-Fil-A and worshipped at a nearby Catholic Church and once lived next door to Sarah Palin and dated her cousins.

Apparently from his twitter:

“I’d really appreciate a retweet. @thegame @myfabolouslife I got my jaw fractured by 2 kids as a hate crime and they stapled inside my mouth.

@myfabolouslife I feel like Frank Lucahhhh, except I’m further uptown in the Heights smoking hookahhhh (NIIICCCEEE).”

He was at a late night party somewhere and says after the attack they threw him out of the house. The people in the house say police told them not to comment.

Also, from another article he says the attackers stated they were “part of the ku klux klan”.

Possibility: Something happened but he made up part of this story

The “20 witnesses” are what the victim reported. The police only said that they had uncovered “some witnesses” and were going to be taking statements from them. It will be interesting to see what these witnesses say and whether they cooroborate the victim.

You might assume that, but since they don’t identity the race of the perpetrators, I’d bet that they are not white. If they were white, the media would definitely report that.

Too bad cell phones don't have a camera built in, or they could have recorded the incident.

“I just heard from our detective bureau that they had found some people that had witnessed it. They were going out to get statements from them, but we haven’t heard anything that there was people standing by that didn’t do anything to aid him. In fact, just the opposite, that after he was assaulted, some people helped him to get a ride to the hospital. Unfortunately, nobody called police or an ambulance or anything,” East Lansing Police Capt. Jeff Murphy told WWJ’s Marie Osborne.

Something very off about this whole deal. He's talking in the video, doesn't look like he's bad off at all. The staple - he said he found it between his teeth coming up from his gums once he woke up. This story stinks.

No it means that the perps were no white Christian males and therefore could not be blamed on T Party activism,

Muslims for sure. Religion of peace.

The party was muslims and they wanted to get the Joo kicked out of the party. So call some friends to come over and do the deed.
