Hope the jury that let him go is happy.

I hope that since Maiden was let off with a warning in Nov. '13 and clearly has shown no turn around by violating that warning just a month later in Dec. '13, will then result in the next judge being harsher on this guy. As a society we shouldn't have to put up with such soft treatment of these thugs. Of course I'm wrong and totally not PC for speaking my mind on that. Can you imagine the outcry if 30 or so white guys beat up a black man trying to help that woman caught up in a fight? It would have been all over the national news and riots would have broken out. Especially if those involved were let off so lightly. I didn't even know about this case until I noticed it in the news last month. It happened back in August and I read the paper pretty closely. Crazy times!

This individual sounds like a felony waiting to happen. A prison cell awaits at significant taxpayer expense if his thug ways persist. I would be interested in the family background; where are mom and dad and their responsibility for raising a solid kid who does not beat people to near death? They, and we have failed.

Judges will keep letting him go until he eventually kills somebody and then he'll probably be given probation.

fdrebin: it's really disturbing to see a human being refer to another human being as a "thing," regardless of the acts perpetrated by the "thing." Furthermore it's scary to see all this unbridled racism bubbling up in so few comments. This is going to be a fun one. Is this guy a recidivist? Probably, but judging by the gnashing of teeth contained in these comments, none of you would have fared too well if you received the same upbringing as this young man.
