More Detail Emerges On Vicious University Of Minnesota Beatings

I've twice previously reported on the violent assault of two students at the University of Minnesota; a story the MSM, save for Fox 9 News, is ignoring. More disturbing detail is emerging via the University's newspaper, the Minnesota Daily: "Two U students assaulted".

A visit to a friend's house early Sunday turned into a bloody trip to the hospital for two University students.

A group of five or six men attacked the students about 2:15 a.m. Sunday on the 1000 block of 12th Avenue Southeast in the Southeast Como neighborhood, witnesses said.

University senior Michael Murphy was first punched in the face and then beaten with what looked like a board, said witness and friend Sara Jensen.

Murphy underwent reconstructive surgery on the left side of his face after he suffered three skull fractures, she said.

Gary Antilla, a sociology and law and criminal deviance junior, said he too suffered a fractured skull and received stitches on his head and hands. He also had abrasions on his arms.

Previous reports underplayed the tremendous amount of violence involved.

Inexplicably, there are no suspect descriptions. Should we not demand more of the MSM, including the Red Star?

What will it take to suppress the criminal element in Minneapolis? Is the beating of University students not sufficient for action to be taken?
