5 members of the tough community of Bird Rock, La Jolla, California were [lightly at best] sentenced to jail time and probation for the beating death of San Diego pro surfer Emery Kauanui, Jr. in May 2007.
Ah yes it's the privileged mostly white boys that have nothing better to do than get wasted and pick fights around an upper class community, because they want to be tough like Brad Pitt and Ed Norton in Fight Club or want to have some gangsta street cred like the rappers they see on TV.
Only difference is that they are trying to terrorize an upper class community. They wouldn't dare go down to Logan Heights or Skyline and pull the stunts they've been pulling around their community. I bet they wouldn't even get out of their car.
Clearly a privileged case...they got what their parents paid for. A slap on the wrist. They send people with lesser crimes to do hard times in prison. These 5 get a few months in JAIL and some probation. Just goes to show, class and social status gets you a long way in life.
Let's all just pray for Emery that the Civil Lawsuit that follows taps the families dry and tarnishes and crumbles all they've built. Revenge is sweet when you do not kill someone but destroy their life slowly.
