http://news.yahoo.co..._dorm_stabbings

Biology student Jason Vassell was in his ground-floor University of Massachusetts dorm room hanging out with friends when two drunken strangers tapped on his window, asking for directions. An argument began.
One of the white men hurled racial slurs at Vassell, who is black, before both took off.
Vassell then put a black cloth over his face, armed himself with a clothes iron and a folding knife and left his room. Surveillance cameras later show Vassell stabbing both men in the dorm lobby.


Hundreds of professors, students and community members continue to rally behind the former student, believing he was the victim of a hate crime and that the two men who set off the chain of events were not held fully accountable.


But in a motion to dismiss the charges, Hoose argues prosecutors ultimately made the decision to charge Vassell because he is black and the two men he stabbed are white.

"When it's someone you know, when you see their life being ruined, it isn't easy to forget it," said sociology professor Dan Clawson, one of Vassell's supporters.


So Vassell's life is being ruined? Couldn't be because someone called him a name (or names) and then he went and stabbed them?

I guess he didn't CHOOSE to do that right?

Hell the guys probably deserved to be stabbed, but it's AGAINST THE LAW.

It'd be different if he just jumped at them right there and beat the crap out of them with an iron....I have a problem with the premeditated putting on the mask and grabbing weapons part.

Yes, but only if you first don a mask, then you're all good.

So the burden of proof whether he stabbed two guys, but if he was the victim of racial slurs?

Cool.

Next time I'm talked to in a degrading manner by whoever...(yes...I'm talking to you Mr. preaching to the bench at the Lincoln Community Health Center, Alston Ave., Durham, NC)...I can simply go to my car where I have my pistol...retrieve it...and gun the guy down? Then I too can get marches and vigils from community and educated leaders alike?

Unfortunately not, there are standards for goodness sake. You have to be a minority first. And the person you gun down must be a racist white person. Well actually just being white will probably do at this point.

i'm sure the thousands of black men arrested or harassed for walking down the sidewalk every day will be glad to hear they can choose not to be.
