They were “bored” and admitted to authorities that they would of continued the violent assault had neighbors not stepped in. The neighbors intervention likely saved Pat Mahaney’s life.
Sucker punched from behind, then the mob swarmed and struck repeatedly; kicking and punching Pat while he was down.
(New York Daily News) –Six teens were arrested Sunday [August 12, 2012] after beating a man unconscious in a Cincinnati suburb – because they were bored and looking for something to do.
Pat Mahaney, 45, of North College Hill, landed in the hospital after a vicious attack that left him with a black eye and severe internal injuries. He was hurt so badly that his stomach filled with blood that required a tube down his throat to drain.
“I find this whole thing appalling and despicable,” North College Hill Police Chief Gary Foust told the Daily News. Foust added that the 13- and 14-year-old boys were arrogant and that he believes the attack was pre-meditated.
Mahaney was returning home with a six-pack of beer when the juveniles walked by him on the sidewalk in the opposite direction, according to an incident report obtained by the Daily News. The boys then turned around and began to follow him. One punched Mahaney in the back of the head, knocking him to the ground.
The teens then took turns kicking and punching him in the head and face repeatedly, the report said. One of the delinquents took a beer can and threw it at Mahaney’s head. The attack only came to an end when a neighbor, witnessing the attack, intervened and said he was calling the cops.
It did not take long to find the suspects – five were arrested that night, the sixth the next day. They told authorities they only stopped beating Mahaney because neighbors intervened.
All six of the boys were charged with two felonies each – aggravated riot and felonious assault.
‘If Obama had a son…’
Update: Premeditated, ZERO remorse, ZERO hate crime –the victim is white.
(Cincinnati.com) –The first five arrestees were: twin brothers Tyree and Terrell Mizzell, Lamont Champion and Daquan Cain, all 13-year-olds; and Michael E. James, 14.
The sixth and final suspect was arrested Tuesday. His name was not immediately available Wednesday.
All except one have been released from Hamilton County’s juvenile detention center and are on house arrest at their parents’ residences, court officials said.
The teens are scheduled for trial Aug. 24.
“It was a heinous crime but it was not a hate crime,” North College Hill Police Chief Gary Foust said. Several residents called police, noting the suspects are black and inquiring whether Mahaney was specifically targeted because he is white. He was not, the chief said.
[Riiight! Because violent black flash mobs are constantly targeting other blacks to get their vicious jump on. *Roll eyes*]
But police were struck by how cocky the boys were for their age.
“They were pretty arrogant in the interview with us,” Foust said. “It’s appalling. I think it’s despicable. This appears to be premeditated and there was no remorse on behalf of any of the assailants. Thirteen-year-olds ought to be playing basketball, not running the streets looking for ways to entertain themselves at the expense of somebody.” [...]
