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 MSUs 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 Tennens mother, Tina.
About 20 people reportedly watched as the men proceeded to staple Zachary Tennens mouth shut at the lips and gums. His jaw was broken in two places during the attack.

Socialists. Same everywhere.
20 people watched? Disgusting.
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?
As opposed to a "I Like You As A Friend" Crime.
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.
Happened in E. Lansing (huge lefty area).
MSM: We know nooooothineeeeng!
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?
A future Danny Pearl has an opportunity to cease being a liberal idiot.
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.
It was only 20 who stood by an did nothing... it not like millions of Germans looked the other way or something. < /s>
The world-wide rise of anti-Semitism is a sure sign of demonic powers rising. Things are close to getting a whole lot worse, very quickly.
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.
And I'm sicken by the lack of a dicription of the perps!
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.
... and do you know how hard it is to call for a cab with your lips stapled shut????
It is a university town of less than 50,000 people and most of the local population are German/English/Irish by background.
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.
I am only dreading the “see, other schools in this conference are bad too!” finger pointing coming from Penn State.
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
Something about this story does not ring true.
“About 20 people reportedly watched as the men proceeded to staple Zachary Tennens mouth shut at the lips and gums. “
AND... these college kids are the future of our nation.
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.
Good thing they did. Otherwise, how would they be able to staple his broken jaw ?
Too bad cell phones don't have a camera built in, or they could have recorded the incident.
Just a daily KOS/CAIR meeting. Someone pointed out the kid’s yellow star.
I have a feeling that it will get a whole lot worse, but it will still be slowly as usual.
That is Dearborn...lol. Wrong city.
20 people stood around and WATCHED!?
Right THERE is a MOST SERIOUS PROBLEM !!!!!!
What the HELL was wrong with them?! For goodness’ sakes!
Pray for America....
” If they were white, the media would definitely report that.”
My belief as well.
There is a lot missing here.
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.
Sounds like B.S.
One DECENT person could NOT watch this attack.
That is the problem-not one decent person out of 20. And we ask God to bless our nation?..disgusting
“As opposed to a “I Like You As A Friend” Crime.”
Really. Lot lighter sentences for love crimes.
Post 13. . .caught it.
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.
