What a shame that Mr. Malavasi finds it necessary to make these Mooney students look bad when his son is the one who started it all. These boys were just trying to defend a friend that was assulted. This is something all boys do when one of their own is assulted.Malavasi should own up to going after these boys first.

Wow!It does not matter what school these kids are from!They went to the Malvasis with every intention to cause trouble!This is not a Mooney-Canfield issue.Does anyone know if these kids were drinking prior to having the nerve to go up to the Malvasis door?I bet you they were!Ask why they were parked on the street and would not let Mr.Malvasi around.I am sure they were at a party on that street where alcohol was being consumed.And as far as Mr.Malvasi interfering on his sons behalf,i w know i would on my childrens behalf if 14 kids stepped foot on our property!Look at the disgraceful video of those kids that came over to "Talk".

These children should be ashamed of themselves. Rumor has it that prior to this altercation, they were doing massive amounts of adrenochrome (makes pure mescaline seem like gingerbeer) and mescaline methadryne. The Frangopoulos boy, he's the ringleader. No doubt he comes from some sort of Horatio Alger rags to riches background. Clearly their plan was to chase this boy down, beat him like crazy, cut his head off and bury him somewhere.

Jesus, did I say that? Or just think it? Was I talking? Did they hear me?

What went on prior to this doesnt make them going over to this house in force any better than it is!!! Is this what it means to be a student at MHS? Kids dont go over someones elses house in force to talk. I cant beleive the person that made the first post is actually thinking strait?

ytownsfinest... The rumor you heard was wrong, one. None of the kids took part in any drinking before the incident (common sense would tell you this because nobody got chared with underage comsumption Einstein). Two, you accusing the Frangopoulos boy of being the "ring leader" is slander, and you don't want that, and he isn't just to let you know. Three, the canfield kid struck the mooney kid first, reading the article and fully understanding it would tell you that one. You're on a date with your girlfriend, and a man comes up punches you, then hits your girlfriend, and takes her purse. Are you going to say too bad, or are you going to run after him and get it back, but don't strick him cause then you're going to get charged, and coming on here and commenting about it without fully knowing the facts makes you look like such a smart, intelligent, intellect. And as for the killing the kid and burrying him, well anybody who reads that would know you're a moron as it is.

The main thing about this altercation is it can't considered trespassing because according to both parties the boys were invited to come in by Mrs. Malvasi. I would be embarassed if my father had to come out and defend me. It was offered multiple times for it to be a 1-1 fight but Malvasi wasn't having it. He got what was coming to him. He initiated the fight, don't feel bad for him because he was on the losing end of the out-come.

He got what he deserved??? Really?!?!?! Since when does one teenage boy deserve to be attacked by ten others?? I agree that what this kid did was wrong, and he probably deserved a confrontation fom the boy he hit, but only by that boy. The rest of those kids should be ashamed of their behavior and I certainly hope that our justice system gives them exactly what THEY deserve!!!

Haha look at Dave Stanna, are u kidding me?! Look at him going crazy on the back of mikes head. Are u seriously going to try to stick up for these kids? Oh yea and hey Mooneyman2009, how bout i give u alittle history lesson. Last year mike did go 1 on 1 wit ur boy dave, remember that, im pretty sure mike wasnt on the losing end of that out-come, since it was a fair fight instead of a 12 on 1 massacre. Haha and ur saying it was "offered" to be a 1 on 1 fight, just like the mooney kids iust came to "talk" about the situation in the first place, haha why dont u try to tell the judge that while he's busy putting u guys behind bars...

** i love how people think they know exactly what's going on with everybody elses business. Not sure i agree that dave lost that fight, mainly because I saw it in person...yes i am going to stick up for my class mates. yes. i said it. I'm a senior at The Cardinal Mooney High School and i have spent the last four years with these boys. They're good kids, granted they make mistakes, but who doesn't?...if you knew anything about brotherhood you would know that when one of you is hurt, you all hurt. You stick up for your friends regardless of possible jail time. Those are true friends that Dominic has and people need to see the big picture...not that it was an unfair fight. The same thing would have happened if it was the other way around.

Hey MooneyMan2009 you say that the same thing would happen if it was the other way around? I can stay out of trouble just fine unlike some neanderthals, and i do this by not being an idiot. If the situation was turned around the other way i bet you it wouldnt have been the same result. because the canfield kid is smarter than that, and would have just filed a large lawsuit. if you dont believe me then look at the video, of course the kid knew he was gonna get his world rocked and that is why he went onto his property. You can challenge the fact that the mooney kids arent idiots all you want, but for them to travel to canfield of all cities, and march onto some random family's property, move in plain sight in front of a clearly visible camera, and then assault a defenseless, outnumbered person; that is just screaming look how idiotic we are. you say your "brotherhood" is supposed to stand up for each other even if it leads to jail time. well how does it feel to know that that's exactly what the Mooney Meatheads are going to get?

All fifteen of these kids were in the wrong: The ten Cardinal Mooney students were wrong for beating up the single Canfield student on his own lawn. The Canfield student was wrong for provoking the Cardinal Mooney students. Even the observers from Cardinal Mooney were wrong for just being in the wrong place at the wrong at the wrong time. Lastly, the father was wrong for participating in the fight, whereas he could have remained in his house and prevented this entire scenario from occurring.

Cowardly! 12 Mooney boys show up to beat up one kid. Worse yet, they pulled him out of his house in front of his mother. Worse yet, they fail to put him down. Better bring another dozen next time. I retired from SOCOM. The last few years of my career I work with underprivileged (i.e. poor) kid to train them to become solders. I would have taken any of these men against these Mooney boys. Not in a fight, but in character, morals and honor. Oh, and since it will make a difference to these Mooney Students, If you would have come after 12 of my graduates, they would not have had to send police for you, but ambulances.

Sweatpea, If the father would not have come out of his house, and had enough sense to keep his son inside the house, there wouldn't have been any scenario. Instead, he decided to go after the fifteen drunk Mooney students, and caused an even bigger issue involving his son.

Think logically. There are only 5 or 6 kids that hit the malvasi boy. I keep my head out of my ass and look at the evidence. On the video the malvasi boy attack johnson to the ground more than once. If you idiots watch the video it was not a "helpless boy" being attacked. Even after the fight is broken up the stupid malvasi kid is begging for more. Put a damn shirt on!!! as for white, he is being charged when he was attacked my Mr. malvasi. I think it would be self defense to hit a father that is attacking you. An adult around 50 yrs old attacked and 18 year old boy and isnt in trouble. How could Jackett be tresspassing when he is invited in by the dad after the fight is broken up. And if none of the kids were charged with underage consuption of alcohol it only makes sense that they werent drunk. I dont even go to Mooney and i feel bad that this is giving that school a bad rep. And bringing up the stana-malvasi fight before this just shows that the malvasi has a prior record of startin fights. As for the mooney "thugs" to "travel all the way to canfield" if your jackass knew anything about this night you would kno that they were already in canfield when the malvasi punched jackett unprovoked. I think its funny that the canfield students are gonna call them thugs because there is two black kids. wow... everyone is so anti-mooney that you dont see the problem. THE MALVASI KID AND HIS FATHER PROVOKED A FIGHT WHERE ONLY 5 OR 6 KIDS WERE IN. AND THE KIDS THAT DID NOTHING WRONG ARE GOING TO LOSE THEIR FUTURES OVER NOTHING.... This is all just a shame.

im sorry. when did 18 year olds become juveniles? you keep saying he is 18 and malvasi is 50; according to the laws in america you are an adult when you turn 18. which means he should be treated as an adult with full responsibility. mr malvasi was defending his son and himself. that kid is lucky he only choked him.

32footballfan17(8 comments)posted 5 years, 9 months ago

If mr. malvasi was defending his son than he should of went over and hit scott or dave not kyle, but if he was any kind of parent then he shoulda came to the door apologized for his son punching Dom and asked those boys to leave not let his adult child run out the house shirtless and tackle scott. but clearly canfield parents have perfect values along with their perfect houses. A fight in canfield has made bigger news that a girl being shot walking on the south side... good job vindy!!

33Moon84(14 comments)posted 5 years, 9 months ago

footballfan17, you are the most ignorant person in this conversation. did you ever think the reason for the canfield fight making bigger news was because idiots like yourself would get in a fight on private property with video cameras. the girl being shot doesnt have as much accessible information to write about and that's why it isnt big news to report on. had the fight never happened and mr malvasi did apologize for his son, the mooney kids would still be in trouble for trespassing on private property. and now i notice that you called malvasi jr an adult, well he is the same age as the other aggressors and you made it a good point of yours that 18 year olds shouldnt have their lives ruined for being dumb. it also sounds like you are jealous of the canfield kids because they are the ones going to win this case.

i might be ignorant to the justice system but not to this situation because you werent there and i was. im not trying to make you that upset that you turn this on me honestly im just trying to get people to understand that you dont know everything that happend. the boys getting charged with assualt should get in trouble and they probably will tomorrow. and i wasn't on the private property i was sitting in a car on the street. what the 5 boys did was wrong but so are the two malvasi's and it wont be fair if they dont get in trouble. And unlike you im still proud to say i go to Mooney and that im attending college next year. Mooney is a really great school and a couple of kids made a bad decision and thats it... theres nothing more than that and since you made this personal i really dont feel comfortbale discussing it anymore

35buckeye768(2 comments)posted 5 years, 9 months ago

All I have to say is WOW! We are dealing with some seriously immature behavior, both between the MEN involved and the seemingly BOYS on the internet talking about it. This altercation has nothing to do with what school these kids attend. If I work at Hollister and I fight someone who works at American Eagle it doesn't make Hollister workers thugs and American Eagle employees jealous of Hollister. Yes there is some bad blood in the valley toward Cardinal Mooney but this fight has nothing to do with that and neither should our discussion. It is wrong for either side to make any comment generalizing the students/people from either school/community.

Suggest removal:

36buckeye768(2 comments)posted 5 years, 9 months ago

With that said....Malvasi Jr. was wrong for hitting Jackett in the first place. Had Jacket been smart, since he obviously knew who Malvasi was, he should have notified police. End of story and we wouldn't be on-line ranting at 2:00 in the morning, but much to the vindicator's pleasure he didn't. He made the decision to come after Malvasi, and his friends made the decision to come along too. Now not only has Malvasi Jr. broken the law but any of the boys who hit him when they arrived at his house are also legally wrong. And all of the boys deserve to get in trouble for that. As for the other boys watching, although not legally wrong, they are morally wrong for watching it happen. As for Malvasi Sr. he has every right to stand up against these other MEN who came on his property with the intent of attacking his son, whether his son provoked the fight or not, he still has the right to protect him on his property.

buckeye768 i agree fully with both of your statements about how everyone is responsible and all deserve just punishment. as for footballfan17, your statement about me getting personal with you is very inaccurate. calling someone ignorant is not getting personal, its simply a statement of fact since you admitted to your ignorance. and you should be proud to be going to college next year and living up to the expectations of an average american.

So this whole situation got out of control! I am a Cardinal Mooney graduate and it's amazing how people are so quick to pass judgement when it involves "mooney " kids! Had it been any other kids this wouldn't have been such a big deal. The canfield kid should not have provoked the fight, and the Mooney kids should not have gone to his house. However, the father jumping in was very distasteful and immature. All of you making comments about how Mooney is a bad school and has bad students can go to hell. Just because our parents care enough to invest in our education doesn't make us spoiled nor brats! It's not a thing of taking sides,it's more of an ethical issue! People make mistakes and the important thing is to learn from them. Some of you feel that their futures should be taken away?? What are you saying? Everyone deserves a chance and I really think people are jealous of
ooney kids for no reason other than pure ignorance. So all of you anti'mooney people, continue to pass judgement, but just remember you all are not God and he has the final decision. Further more all of you adults or supposedly adults on here name calling and mooney bashing need to get a life and take some lessons on maturity. The Mooney motto is "for Mooney and against no one"

You people whining about how Mooney kids are being picked on is priceless!
To say that the only reason this is newsworthy is because it involved Mooney kids shows your true immaturity. This is a strory of 10-14-whatever people going to 1 persons home to settle whatever issues they have/had PERIOD.
To bring schools or financial status into this story is truely asinine.
Once this is sorted out later today you'll probably find that even if Malvasi did throw the 1st punch it can most likely only be verified by the other guy's friends....hardly credible witnesses. What is damning however is the video showing several people involved in a brawl. That's the only thing the judge will have to go on unless there's a hidden witness NOT aquaited with the ones charged.

Everyone in high school picks fights. It just so happened that Mooney is a high profile school in this area, and one that this community is all-too-quick to judge...not to mention tear down its credibility. BOYS WILL BE BOYS. (Malvasi Junior AND Senior included...)

44proud1(6 comments)posted 5 years, 9 months ago

Ok... let me re-write this story for you. My scenario on this whole thing.

1st of all: Those who were just standing around... lucky Malvasi or even your friend didn't have a gun. You may have been shot in the crossfire. Its stupid onlookers who get hurt.

2. Jackett should have filed a police report at the scene of his incident.

3. Malvasi/ His Mom/ His Dad/ the dog - whoever it was, shouldn't have opened the door. They should've called the cops.

4. The dad had every right to clean house! Stay the hell off my property and don't attack my kid. I would do the same. Actually, see #3. I would've called the cops. But if someone answered the door first and my son was outside fighting, I'm there. He's my kid! Sorry!

5. I sleep in shorts and a t-shirt. I've answered the door the same way. Maybe thats why Malvasi is in a tshirt.

6. The Mooney students should not be suspended. They did not fight at a school function or on school property. This is a legal system issue. Not a school related one.

7. Just because they weren't charged with an alcohol offense doesn't mean it wasn't involved. It also doesn't mean it was either.

8. If you think its ok to put keys in a fishbowl and let under 21 people drink... read this: http://www.publicsafety.ohio.gov/link...

9. I don't care how many prior fights Malvasi was in... 14 people showed up at his house... big mistake.

10. The video skips for a minute. Watch the time closely. Where is that footage? Let us see the other cameras.

11. Mr. Malvasi doesn't have to be shady because he has security cameras. I have them too. Its to protect belongings in my home. Rob me and I know who you are idiots! Plus I know who is at my front door when the doorbell rings which makes me think that Malvasi was dumb because on the video you can clearly see 14 people outside.

I hope Judge Hunter lays down some smack!

Not only do we have the "missing minute", which someone explained as a feature of a camera operated by motion sensor, but has anyone else noticed that the VIDEO SKIPS FROM 50:12 TO 50:19 even though there are people and a cat walking and moving around? There's blame all around in this entire incident, but the fact that this video clearly was edited prior to it being given to the police raises my suspicions about what REALLY happened.

Mooney will do anything to make their wonderful students look good. HA this is a joke! I do not even know the Malvasi family but I am on their side 100% I hope all these kids get what they deserve! Im almost positive that alcohol was involve haha but noooo not with Mooney kids! Even the minors should pay! These boys think they are so hard...how hard is it to beat someone up 14-1? NOt even like they did a good job..he got up and walked away didnt he? Mr.Malvasi should do whatever it takes! I am absolutly ashamed to say that I am a graduate of Cardinal Mooney!

I graduated from Boardman a while back. So i am familiar with the area. I never had any reason to fight anyone so i don't want to be ignorant to the situation. The only thing i would like to know is what are we teaching our children, and have we taught our children self control?? Our men need to act more like gentlemen. A true gentleman's self control is equal to all emergencies. I don't think these children, and i say children because they definitely are not men yet, deserve some type of punishment. I don't care to know how fair or unfair the fight was because nobody should ever have to fight unless you are protecting your family.

The father did the right thing, by defending his son. The Mooney boys did the wrong thing by adding fuel to the fire. There was an easier way to solve such a conflict. This isn't what boys do, and if that is continued to be taught to your children then you are making a terrible parenting mistake. 18 year old men should realize if they hurt this boy to the point where he was seriously injured then that could have resulted in a felony. That means good luck in getting a job with such a top notch education. Think before you act, and realize that life is too short to do such a violent act.

There has got to be more to this story. Something else had to happen leading up to the events of the entire evening.....from both sides. Eventually, all will be revealed. The speculation listed in several posts makes our area sound rediculous and uneducated. I am confident that the outcome and punishment will not please all. The entire incident is unfortunate for all involved and the fuel of the community side taking fire is not good for any of us now. Mistakes were made. Things went to far. Reading all of the posts, it seems that the incident has turned into a massacre of the Malvasi and Mooney reputations. We need something positive in this time of unrest....focus on something else....please.

I heard that some of the Mooney kids had scholarships. I hope no one sends that video to those schools.

I have read most of the comments made on this subject and I know one thing for sure... most of the people who have posted comments need some serious help with their grammar and spelling. Put that tobacco in your academic pipe and smoke it!

My personal opinion on the whole situation is that these kids need to start growing up. i am only a college student but who acts like this with any self respect on either side of either party. As for the Malvasi boy, what was he trying to prove? you see 14 boys outside of your house, you do the responsible thing. you call the cops. of course he was probably worried the mooney kids would rat him out on his assault from the confrontation earlier before, but how bone headed do you have to be to choose a mob of your peers all ready to turn you into mince meat over doing the obvious. The father did the right thing by coming out and try to defend his son. whether he struck one of the mooney kids, i do not know. if he did, and it was necessary for his defense, alright, but if he took the offense, shame on him. he as a grown man should know that would only escalate the situation. although the Malvasi party was at wrong, the real situation is this mob mentality brought into this fight by these mooney kids. i know of a number of these young men, if you could call them that after this incident, and i know that some of them are pretty big headed, but for them to involve themselves in a situation like this and escalate it just by showing up with the shear numbers they did was just a pathetic display of character.

This is what we try to teach our children, isn't it? character. from the family room to the class room, it has, or should have been, a constant molding of ones character from their parents to their school teachers. I'm sure some of these kids have been getting an earfull from their parents, and truly did just allow themselves to become involved with the peer pressure and feeling of involvement that strikes us all in high school. but being at the wrong place at the wrong time, and directly involving yourself in the confrontation are two different things. those kids that were convicted with assault should face the penalties that any citizen of this country would have to face, no matter what their social stature. this includes the malvasi boy. The truth is, this situation could have turned out much worse. Maybe after the boy bled enough, those mooney boys allowed their strong religious morals get the best of them and backed off. thank god for that, right? People can say that this should not be a mooney issue. lets make a comparison. if a large group of men that all just so happened to be white supremacists lynched a black man, would that not be a white supremacist issue. an issue between blacks and whites. let's get real, representatives of cardinal mooney high school with a joint of the parents of the kids involved should be making a public statement of apology for this instance. not for their own good, but the good of this community, to show these kids that acts of violence like this one is not to be tolerated, not in the confines of ours homes, schools, or streets. It's the responsible thing to do, and responsibility is what was lacking in the first place to allow these kind of events to take place.

I think there is a lesson here to be learned; Poland has the best students. One Poland student was also victim to an outraged CMHS student. He was hospitalized (if you do not remember) I think that the Mooney students need to lay off the steroids. Well that settles it, Poland the best!

mpc that was the worst comparision ever. Those two things aren't even close. Comparing a lynching to this is distastefull. I read some pretty dumb things, but that is a winner.

Quite honestly I think this whole situation is ridiculous. The Mooney boys got suspended for what they did, even the ones who never threw a punch. Was Malvasi suspended? People say that Cardinal Mooney is such a horrible school, why hasn't Canfield taken any initiative towards Malvasi? Mooney has great values with great students, and just because a few of them were involved in a bad situation doesn't change the impressive characters of the other students at Cardinal Mooney. There is a young man trying to break up the fight that got suspended and 2 others in the back who ran away that got suspended also, absolutely unfair. Some of these guys may be guilty, but taking away the futures of the ones who did nothing is cruel. Taking away anyone's future over a stupid high school fight is pathetic. If this video wasn't edited you would see Malvasi Sr. strangling a high school student.. Everyone saying that these Mooney kids are stupid, immature, meatheads should be able to say the same about both Malvasi men. They look just as bad as the others.. Defending your son or not, be responsible and do the MATURE adult thing by calling the police, not going out of your house in leather gloves to beat the hell out of a bunch of high school kids. Both sides are at fault but really, anyone who punches someone unprovoked should be prepared for something in return. Regardless of the fact that there were 14 to 1, if you know that theres a whole mob of angry, hot headed high school boys at your front door waiting to fight you, why would you answer? Yeah, because you want to prove your a man. And you definately look like a COMPLETE man on the snowy ground, shirtless, getting your ass kicked Malvasi. And then asking for more when everyone leaves... Okay.

I'm a little late here but, I'd like to point out that the defense of "we were going there to talk" holds no weight. 12am, snow on the ground, half of those kids walk up in t-shirts and shorts. I remember being young. When the tough guys were looking for a fight they always shed their bulky clothing. One of them has his fists clenched the moment he appears on camera. This was a planned attack. Aggravated trespassing and assault on everyone who showed up and threw a punch. I do believe that if it can be proven that the boy punched someone earlier on in the night he should be charged also.

these kids in the video are idiots and some insider info,rumor has it john simon was at this fight standing in the background out of camera sight. but thats a rumor and i think that none of these people should get off easy like most mooney kids. there is no reason why they shouldnt do time for there actions,I give the win two the malvasi. and kyle white is an idiot for leaving boardman to go sit the BENCH at mooney

boardman is going to kill mooney next year bye the way because boardman is bigger and stronger, how many times have we won the lifting meet now?
