Student's mouth stapled in 'anti-Semitic attack' [Michigan State]
Jerusalem Post ^ | 8-28-12

Posted on 08/28/2012 4:13:35 PM PDT by SJackson

Michigan State Jewish student attacked at party, knocked unconscious; ADL "horrified by violent assault."

A Jewish student at Michigan State University said he was attacked at an off-campus party in what he is calling a hate crime.

Just before the assault, which broke his jaw, Zach Tennen said his attackers asked him if he was Jewish, according to reports.

Tennen, 19, a resident of suburban Detroit, said he answered in the affirmative. He told WDIV-TV in Detroit that his attackers also "were making Nazi and Hitler symbols and they said they were part of the KKK."

Tennen was knocked unconscious during the attack, which took place early Sunday morning near MSU's East Lansing campus. The assailants stapled his mouth shut through his gums.

Others at the party watched as Tennen called a taxi to take him to the hospital. His mouth was surgically wired shut.

His family has called the Anti-Defamation League regarding the assault.

ADL responded to the parents of the victim and were in contact with local law enforcement and university officials.

“We are horrified by this violent assault and allegations that the student may have been viciously attacked because he was Jewish,” said Betsy Kellman, ADL Detroit Regional Director.

“We are confident that the East Lansing Police will thoroughly investigate this deeply troubling case and, given the allegations, treat it as a possible hate crime. We hope the perpetrators will be swiftly brought to justice.”

The university in an email statement referred all questions about the police investigation to the East Lansing Police Department, as the incident occurred off campus.

"Michigan State University's Student Affairs and Services office has reached out to the family of the student who said he was assaulted in East Lansing to provide the academic and other support the student needs," the statement also said.

Tennen plans to return to classes in a week

ADL Expresses Outrage and Horror Over Attack on Jewish Michigan State Student

Following a vicious attack on a Michigan State student on Sunday, in which two men beat a Jewish student unconscious before stapling his mouth shut, the Anti Defamation League has reached out to the victims family, and released a statement on Tuesday condemning the incident.

“We are horrified by this violent assault and allegations that the student may have been viciously attacked because he was Jewish,” said Betsy Kellman, ADL Detroit Regional Director. “We are confident that the East Lansing Police will thoroughly investigate this deeply troubling case and, given the allegations, treat it as a possible hate crime. We hope the perpetrators will be swiftly brought to justice.”

Zachary Tennen, a sophomore at Michigan State University, was approached by two men at a party early on Sunday and asked if he was Jewish, according to Tennen’s mother. The men proceeded to raise their right arms in a Nazi salute and said “Heil Hitler”, before beating Tennen unconscious. According to Tennen’s mother, 20 people watched while her son had his mouth stapled by the two suspects.

The ADL “has spoken to the parents of the victim, Zachary Tennen, a sophomore, and has been in contact with local law enforcement and university officials since first learning of the assault, which took place in the early morning hours of August 26 and reportedly was witnessed by other students,” according to a statement released by the group on Tuesday.

Michigan State has approximately 3,000 Jewish undergraduate students on campus, according to Hillel’s website.

Something tells me that the ADL & the SPLC are becoming a little nervous that the deluge of Black-on-White crime could lead to a resurgence of the KKK.

If one looks closely at the details given, this young man’s claims don’t quite add up. (One item that might not be well known is that the Heil Hitler salute is the right hand & the KKK salute is with the left hand)

I have a feeling this is gonna blow up in the kid’s face. I believe he got beat up by a couple of punks, but I’m betting the hate crime angle is BS.

Maybe his mom got the arm wrong, it’s irrelevant. Whether kluckers or neonazis, no difference. The nature of the assault, and the silence of the witness’, is reported in numerous sources.

I’m not believing this story until we have WAY more verification.

His injuries are accidental and/or self-inflicted.

Why would this blow up in the kids face? Are you suggesting that if they weren't kluckers, or even if he wasn't a Jew, it's OK? I see no circumstance at all that this could "blow up" in the kids face.

Yup. Michigan is a concealed carry state. Whether the assault was triggered because he’s a Jew which most articles state, a girlfriend or a couple drunks or whatever, you need to be able to defend yourself, because 20 bystanders won’t do a thing.

Agreed. Superficial anti-lesbian slurs carved on places where the ‘victim’ can reach and a story that doesn’t add up is nowhere near a broken jaw, unconscious with a mouth stapled shut.

The perps need to be put down. I am sick of the breakdown of our society by these animals. Cleanse the gene pool.

I’ll try to explain this in very simple terms. My theory: The kid went to a party where he didn’t know anybody. His friends left, he stayed. Two drunken punks, attacked him and nobody at the party helped. The cops interviewed people at the party and learned it was just a couple of punks who beat up a defenseless kid. This happens all the time and the punks would probably be charged with a misdemeanor. The Jewish kid was pissed (and rightfully so). He made up the part about the Nazi salute etc to really nail their asses. Unfortunately for him, the story went viral. When it’s revealed he made up the hate crime part, it will blow up in his face. Think about it. He didn’t know anyone at the party and two guys come up and ask if he’s Jewish? Was he wearing a yarmulke? Was he spouting Yiddish? Did he say he was a Hollywood producer?

According to Tennen’s mother, 20 people watched while her son had his mouth stapled by the two suspects.

This part is strange.... 20 people watch and don't so anything?

I was a bouncer at a bar for a year while in uni. Seen stuff like this before. I suspect he was drunk, lipped off to the two wrong guys(possibly he started it), they beat the crap out of him and they stapled his mouth shut and the two guy out of being angry at him used the anti Jewish slurs after the fact.

I don't think they were out looking for Jews to pick on but it just progressed into bad language

See my post #19.. 9.9 times out of 10 when I worked at the bar fights never just happened. Always a trigger point...usually by someone lipping off, insulting a gf, walking into somebody and not apologising etc.

I never did see two guys just start beating on someone.

The story has been posted earlier where the cops say they don’t believe it was a hate crime after interviewing people at the party. Admittedly, these are the local cops and not the university police. But it’s a liberal, college town that lives off the student body. And how did the punks know he was Jewish? It just doesn’t smell right.

Police say attack on Mich. student not hate crime

By MIKE HOUSEHOLDER | Associated Press – 2 hrs 45 mins ago

DETROIT (AP) — Police say an attack on a Michigan State University student at an off-campus party is not being investigated as a hate crime.

Zach Tennen says he was at a party when two men asked if he was Jewish, and when he responded “yes,” punched him in the face. Tennen says his attackers also stapled his mouth.

The 19-year-old sophomore from the Detroit suburb of Franklin was recovering Tuesday from jaw surgery. He says the assault took place early Sunday at an off-campus party.

East Lansing police said in a statement Tuesday that the assault was “not likely a hate crime.”

The statement also says police have identified a potential suspect.

Police did not return calls Tuesday from The Associated Press asking for more details on the attack.

Yes, the facts need to be sorted out, but a rather serious assault. As a bouncer I wouldn't necessarily expect you to intervene, but wouldn't you call 911? What was wrong with the bystanders? I admit to being a bit surprised at the number of people, not you, who seem to imply this is the victims fault.

Whether or not it’s a hate crime is largely irrelevant. When a Muslim looking to kill Jews strolled into a Jewish community center in Seattle shooting six, killing one pregnant woman, it wasn’t a hate crime either. The perps should be prosecuted, the bystanders should be ashamed.

Malicious wounding. A vicious, violent assault like this should be met with the maximum punishment allowed by law. Such a callous disregard for another individual bespeaks an extremely dangerous criminal mind. Such people don't belong in a civilized society.

Whether this incident is a hate crime or not is purely a semantic dispute. Regardless, the perpetrators deserve no mercy. I hope these pieces of shit spend many years in prison contemplating just how evil they are.

IMHO, the death penalty is entirely appropriate for such sadistic animals...

I don’t know, in my younger days on the infamous Rush street, every now and then, there was a drunken jerk who, for whatever reason ( didn’t like my looks, was pissed I was with a girl and he wasn’t) would do something to start a confrontation). I was always out there for one reason- to meet women so I ignored it. Luckily, I always managed to avoid a fight. But I know for a fact there were some real losers out there who just started a fight no matter what.

It’s not that were anti Semetic, or anything like that.

It’s just that, this ain’t our first rodeo. Now I’m not into keeping stats and all, but we ALL know “stories” that have “changed” as the details come out.

Excuse me, no one here likes attacks against Jews, or is slow to condemn such things.

This story contains contradictions and some implausible elements. No one is being antisemitic because this particular story might be exaggerated.

The story was his mouth was “stapled shut”. Apparently he found a staple between his teeth. He said no one would help him, police said that’s not true. He said he was thrown out of the party house he was at after being beat up, which was just weird.

The story happens to sound fishy, that’s all. No need to get all angry at people for it.

How do you call a cab with your jaw broken and mouth stapled shut, in a daze after being knocked unconscious?

Why would you call the cab and not 911?

There are violent white supremacists or anti-Semites, organized or wanna-be. But there seem to be more fake incidents than real ones.

In a withholding judgment mode here.

His picture does not show any staple marks and not even any bruising that would be associated with a broken jaw. I suspect this whole story has been badly garbled, and that is probably understandable. I also saw that the police said they hope to learn more when they can speak with the victim.

I would like to know what the emergency room doctor's version of the story of the mouth stapled shut through the gums?

According to all the accounts I read, he had surgery.

His lower jaw looks swollen and discolored to me, do you know when this picture was taken?

The caption on the picture said this was the boy describing his attack. It sounds to me like a drunk kid got punched and made all the rest up.

He described a crack in his lower jaw between his front teeth, yet the first hospital did nothing about it. Then later on he went on his own to another hospital and had his jaw wired shut.

I wonder how anyone could unquestioningly believe one word of this farce. How many kids get punched in a bar or party every night? It is a non-story if he does not embellish it.

About the broken jaw, (ok the story could be fake), I broke my ankle, as well as sprained it.
I walked into ambulatory ER, told them what happened and they said, “well you are walking on it so its not broken”.
Told me to come back the next day, if I was still bothered.
I did, that doctor begrudgingly took an xray, my ankle was broken it two spots.
So it’s possible that his jaw was broken and the docs missed it, also several of the articles said he had surgery.

When I broke my ankle it looked like a football but anecdotal comparisons are not much use.

I found this Zachary Tennen interview which confirms my belief that this kid wants only to make the other guy pay, despite the truth otherwise.

Understood and frankly if this hate crime reported by a Jewish guy proves to be made up in any way, that also will be unusual. Hey, maybe the attack happened exactly as he said it but there some strange aspects to the story.

Where to start?

The posted news report at Free Republic has no statements by Police, no statements by medical personnel, and no statements from the 20 people who witnessed the crime.

Do I really need to explain to you two that America gets duped at least twice a year - EVERY year - by some 19 year old college student who presents himself/herself as a victim of a political hate crime?

According to Google, the New York Daily News has the most recent update on this story.

In that report, the Police Chief states that the PD has “not been able to interview” the victim.

Almost three days after the alleged crime the alleged victim has not even made a written statement to Police.

The Police Chief also stated two witnesses have been interviewed.

They state the victim was in the front yard arguing with two males, one of whom punched the victim.

The witnesses heard no racial slurs and saw no mouth stapling.
