This fight was purported to be racially motivated, however, did anyone notice that there were some cool headed students who attempted to break up the fight. I know I did, but that gets lost amongst the cheers of those students who were excited about the fight on the bus.
Rich Miller noticed it at least:
Dear Belleville police spokesman Don Sax,Let me just say the excitement of those students, not much different than my time in high school. There were some students who were excited about and flocked to the fight. Perhaps that was better than being at school I suppose!
Announcing to the media that a fight between teenagers on a school bus was “racially motivated” after simply reviewing a videotape was obviously a stupid thing to do. Didn’t you notice that it was black kids who broke it up? Drudge, thankfully, took down the gigantic, blaring headline after you corrected yourself.
