Re: “A hazy hazing case at Arkansas Tech

I am glad, too, that DeShawn is still with us, even after being hit hard in a football scrimmage on April 18th, the day after he was supposedly beaten up so badly on April 17th. Now that he is well and featuring himself on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, it is time that he thank the One who really saved his life by telling the truth about his activities on April 17, April 18, and April 19. Coach Mullins states in another article that DeShawn was hit in football scrimmage at Arkansas Tech on April 18th, the day after he is said to have been beaten by Kappas. Is Coach Mullins telling the truth? Did DeShawn scrimmage or not? How was he able to scrimmage on that day, if he was so badly beaten on the day before? Has Torro Benn reviewed the footage of the scrimmage? What did DeShawn do on April the 19th? What did he eat? What did he drink? What else did he do? Were there 16 Kappas present on April 17th or were there only the four who are charged? What Kappa actually ran the meeting on April 17th and why is DeShawn trying to protect him? What about all of the text messages back and forth that really reveal who was present and who was in charge? Were there not alumni present who were supposed to supervise the meeting?

Re: “A hazy hazing case at Arkansas Tech

Tony Walker says that DeShawn Scoggins does not recall what happened at the Kappa meeting on April 17th? Why not? If DeShawn does not recall what happened, then who said anything happened at all? Didn't he sign a statement to the effect that his injury was related to football scrimmage on April 18th? Does DeShawn remember going to the Waffle House with members of Kappa Alpha Psi after the meeting on April 17th? Does he remember going to class, to football scrimmage ( and being hit so hard that he did not return after participating in at least seven plays), and to lab in the evening of April 18th, the following day? Why did the state police special agent obliterate any mention of the events and circumstances of April 18th and suggest that DeShawn was with members of Kappa Alpha Psi on April 21st? That was no mere error in transcription. If so, why hasn't the agent revised his report, as he has been asked to do? Indeed, how does one transcribe "17" and end up with "21"? It is one thing to oppose hazing. It is another to manufacture dates and ignore facts in order to contrive a battery charge against innocent young African American men and attempt to make felons out of very decent and honorable young men. One thing your story gets DeShawn Scoggins to acknowledge that is not acknowledged in the affidavit that led to the arrest of these young African American men: DeShawn went voluntarily to the meeting on April 17th. Indeed, he went eagerly and enthusiastically. Reading the affidavit, one would think that DeShawn had been kidnapped and abducted and taken somewhere against his will. Furthermore, why is DeShawn attending parties in Atlanta and New Orleans with Kappas, and displaying the same on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter if he was treated so badly at their meeting? When is DeShawn going to name all 16 Kappas who attended the April 17th meeting and the other Kappas who attended similar meetings with him?
