Connor, a friend, was beaten up.
Connor - is one of the fabulous young people from my St. James's Cambridge days. He was beaten up on Friday night.
Connor's Mum (Tess Pope) writes thisregarding what happened:
"And so summer begins. At the ER with Connor until 5 a.m. A joke about the relative merits of one exam school over another can lead to this? 5 kids kicking Connor in the head???
What is the mind set here? How do you justify kicking another person in the head? Or being part of a group of 5 kicking 1 person in the head? The kids who did this were not lacking in privilege or opportunity, most of them growing up in West Roxbury."
