Cont..Mr. Malvasi had every right to step in and try to save his son from this immature and thoughtless torture. Those of you who have bashed the Malvasi family and their name better think twice and put yourselves in their shoes. The funny thing is the Malvasi's had no intentions in pressing any charges even though they had a video tape from the get-go to prove the whole fiasco! They had class and were friends with some of these parents so didn't want to bring this out to be a huge case in this town. Karma really does come back around to those Mooney parents who decided they should press charges on Malvasi. The Mooney boys deserve a harsh punishment to wake them up of what they did and had absolutely no right to do. I hope all of you out there who praise the ground these Mooney boys walk on and think their parents are doing such a fine job in raising them now see this all from a different perspective. Someone should seriously look further into this case, because so much is left undone and undiscovered.

I can tell you this house has been a party house for years! After these boys drank and got some alcohol to combine with that testosterone they decided to go to Malvasi's house at 1 in the morning, trespass his family's property, and they had every intention in giving them a piece of their minds. How dare anyone say these boys are good kids making a "wrong decision"? They clearly knew what they were doing! The sad part about all of this is because this town is so scandalous and covers everything up due to your status here or the money you have, these kids, two of them having doctor's as fathers, will probably get a slap on the wrist. If only all of this information was actually put out there on the paper. Another point, is why didn't the Canfield police have these boys take a breathalizer? Being the well-known tough police force they are that really doesn't make sense at all..these kids were out past curfew right after a school dance..no doubt the police probably had to have an idea that most of them were drunk! As for the rest of the comments I have read regarding the Malvasi family and Mr. Malvasi getting involved in the fight..if your son was on the cold snowy ground, without a shirt, getting the life beat out of him, wouldn't you step in?
Cont..Let's say you are a 18 year old boy, someone is blocking a cold-a-sack for no reason what so ever and you could not go through to pick up your girlfriend..Then, this person continues to use vulgar language to provoke Malvasi. .who wouldn't punch this kid in the face? After Malvasi just wanted Jackett to move out of his way. Then as for Jackett, why didn't he fight him right then and there? Aren't you supposed to fight your own battles? As for the part of the story that the Mooney kids just wanted to go "talk" the fight out at Malvasi's house, I think everyone knows that was a complete and utter lie. Does anyone have any idea that the night this happened was coincidentally the night of Mooney sweethearts? And after the dance these 14 Mooney boys went and drank at a well-known family's house that is so "highly-respected" throughout this town..little does everyone know they condone this drinking every weekend without a problem! Does anyone also know that a girl almost died that night and had to go to the hospital to get her stomach pumped after drinking so much?

I will not reveal my name, but I am a person who knows the whole story and what really happened. Let me start off by saying that I am an Alumni of Ursuline and I had many friends that went to Mooney due to attending St.Christines grade school with me. I can tell you that from my experience, there are both good and bad kids in both schools. However, there is one thing I noticed with Mooney's student body. Every year there were a group of certain boys in each grade that thought they were better than everyone else due to the fact that they were football stars.To be perfectly honest, most of them slid their way right through high school because teachers basically handed grades to them. You wonder why Mooney football players get so much more offers than Ursuline or any school around? Well, that refers to 1. Grades, which are hardly accumulated on their own 2. Steroids, which are easily covered up because they do not drug test! and 3. Their building school reputation in football which is not rightfully earned. With this all being true, let me start off the story by saying Malvasi had every right to hit Jackett in the face on the day of Feb. 22. cont..
