Something tells me if the races were reversed in this incident it would be a national story. This is one of the biggest cheap shots I've ever seen. This guy better be doing some time for this.
The victim stated that he did not know the attacker. He did not see him coming and did not know he could be hit. Does it get any lower than this? A 16 year old blindsiding a 12 year old with brass knuckles, breaking his teeth and putting a hole in his cheek.
