I don't feel like you know the whole story. Your comment about the house Dominc Jackett and his friends were on their way to was irrelevant. However, the house is in a dead end culdesac and when there's a party at anyone's house in that neighborhood traffic is so backed up. It wasn't just the night of mooney's sweetheart either, it was also the same night as canfield's sweethearts dance. So because of all this congested traffic I could see how Michael Malvasi could become a little impatient and let his road rage kick. Now we've gotten to the point when Michael Malvasi steps out of his vehicle then comes up to Dominic Jackett's window. Words were exchanged and after Michael Malvasi strikes Dominic Jackett in the face. I'm sorry but if there was traffic backed up on the freeway would you go to the source of the problem as strike in the face? No. It's not logicial. Concerning this video tape, it makes those boys look so terrible, because what they did was indeed wrong, but people just assume that Michael Malvasi was grabbed off of his porch and tackled. There is no cold hard fact that can prove that that was what had happened. Don't go bashing on people. You preach about karma. Practice what you preach. Thank you.

this is absolutely insane. i truely do not understand the extent of this problem. look at what our country is going through and we are more concerned with what a group of high school students are doing, particularly mooney high school students. it's wrong to hope for anyone or anythings demise. i don't see anyone in the youngstown (boardman, canfield, poland, etc.) area complaining when mooney brings home a state title? people are proud to say they live in a community with such tremendous athletes. however, it was high school students who got into an altercation with one another. people walked away with cuts and bruises but no one left concussed or with broken bones. it is completely unfair to think that these mooney students should act a certain way, and that they shouldn't be getting into this type of trouble, granted they shouldn't, all because they go to a catholic school. however it seems that the canfield boy (a public school student) is permitted to act in such violence? private or public both parties should take the heat for what had happened, not one over the other. some of these boys are being charged as an adult. completely put aside the fact that these boys are 18 years old and think this way : they are all (mooney boys and the canfield boy) seniors in high school. their senior year is coming to a close and they should be stressing over college, and graduation. not court dates and possibly jail time. the bottom line was it was a minor fight.
