Oh my goodness, that’s horrible. I’m so glad they’re okay. Not that this is much consolation, but better rocks than guns… maybe it was some kind of dare or initiation ritual. How awful.

ETA: Definitely report it to the police if you haven’t already.

Holy crap!I hope hes ok and they find out who did it. I dont understand why people just lash out like that, with no reason or purpose. I hope your FIs friend is ok and has a speedy recovery!

@chippybee:  I can only relate with you Bee.

The same thing happened to my SO and 3 of his friends almost two years ago.

My fiancé had a fat lip and a black eye but one of his friends had a broken leg (those bast*rds jumped on his leg while he was laying on the curb), a broken nose and two black eyes.

It was awful and for absolutely no reason.

I’m sending positive thoughts your way as I know it takes a while to recover and overcome that feeling of fear and sickness to the stomach.

Good luck to all of you.

At least they are all alive, that’s always the main thing, after all.

But how traumatic! I can’t believe someone lost an ear. It’s barbaric. It being such a large group of kids, society must have failed them in a major way (if it was just one, I’d wonder if he was born with a damaged brain and prone to senseless violence). I’m guessing this relates to the economic situation and their families have it pretty bad…this is their frustration relief from what they may correctly feel are lives with little hope of anything but a dead end.
