Dean College Students Expelled After Beating Video Surfaces Online

CBS Boston, December 6, 2011

Nine students at Dean College have been expelled after a student was beaten up in an attack that was recorded on video.

It happened on the campus in Franklin Friday.

The disturbing video posted online shows a young man confronting another man. Moments later, the first man punches the other, knocking him to the ground and the beating continues.

While the attack goes on, a group of men yell and laugh at the victim as he is knocked to the ground and pummeled with his own sneakers.


Students say the altercation was over sneakers that the attacker believed the victim had stolen from him. They are limited edition Nike sneakers that sell for $200.

The victim’s roommate tells WBZ that the victim did not steal the sneakers from his attacker and that he brought them from home. He says the victim is not an aggressive person and never fights, and is now recovering from the one sided attack. {snip}
