If you watch the video, you can see the group of boys pull the Canfield student out of or off of his porch. The fact that 14 of the Mooney students even felt the need to "discuss" a situation that happened earlier is wrong. They were there as a mob to do just what they did. The entire attitude that "NO BODY MESSES WITH ME" needs to stop. I doubt that this one young man did something to EACH of the Mooney students. The dad needs to be commended. If I walked out of my house to see that a MOB of young men were beating my son--not just one on one--I would have taken a ball bat out with me. Yes, the situation would have been worse, but I live in Indiana. Here you are permitted to protect your home and person. The Canfield dad and son should have safety in their own home. The fact that they are from Mooney or Canfield should be irrelevant. A gang is a gang. This should NEVER be acceptable.
