Soprano', he is not laughin' at all...I saw him...Look, that felony that he commited early that morning is ridiculous! Ok, he could fight and beat that guy, it's not that hard when u are that big (210cm and 130kg) but repeadetly kick someone in the head when he's down?! I know him very well, he doesn't do stuff like that and if he did it he didn't do it without a GOOD reason!!! Ask urself why do you need to kick someone in the head when u beat someone?! He don't do stuff like that, i know him...

Someone watch tv too much, and he watching bed amirican mouvies.
If you think that he is bad guy, you are stupid, very stupid.
Minja is great guy, but you americans, do not have feelings (you parents wonts that you go to work with 16 years, what is not case in our county), for you only what is imoprtend is money.
I am happy becaus I am from Serbia, and i am proud because i am frend of Minja.
At the end you, and you county will pay to Minja because he was in jeal with out reason. In that bar wos camera, and Bryan was drunk and drog. In hospital wher was Bryan have good doktors. Tru is caming...If you want, came to Srbia, see what is life, i mean wrily life... Frends, family and all what you don`t have in USA

serbians, i believe that your feelings are sincere but youre unfortunately misinformed. minja has been a violent person and a drug user for awhile. in fact, you probably know about some of it if you are his friends. you must ask yourselves a question. if he is innocent, then why would he flee the country? i apologize but its hard to doubt that you are simply defending him because he is serbian. and just let him know that its going to be hard to disguise all that muscle when the FBI comes looking for him.

Nobody is putting Serbia on trial here. Minja is an individual who obviously does not represent all Serbians. You're attempts to discredit the victim while demonizing all Americans are laughable. This has nothing to do with Serbia and the United States. If an American supposedly put a Serbian in a coma and ditched the country, you can bet that our law enforcement would turn him over.

That's true I must admit... It's not that we put Minja infront of Serbia, but I don't know if you read other comment's (other topics related with this topic) but it's really insulting...
I don't know Minja but my brother does and he has only nice words for him they played basketball 2gether... Just don't know what to say... It's not right but it's ok (ok in the sense of defending your girlfriend).
I must comment (even we are on the opsite sides) thaat I'm glad there are reasonable people who can discuss in civilize way.

The man's party was attacked by a drug addict in a stupor, and he defended himself and his friends.
..........
It is specifically said in many reports that the drug addict is in a coma not because he was slapped a couple of times by the attacked Kovacevic but because he was intoxicated with drugs and booze.
..........
People jump bail all the time, especially when they are rich so that a 100 grand makes no difference to them. I see no problem here whatsoever.

Minja is NOT a good guy. He has basically killed someone with his hands and feet. He is a bigot and all day long he looks at White Power websites. He uses drugs and should spend his life in jail regardless of what country he is from!
get him

anone involved in this crime should be punished and that includes the serbian government for helping this criminal escape...... serbian consulate in NY posted $100,000 bail for a criminal and issued a passport for him to leave the states..... who knows what else this government can do to hide criminals .... now we wonder and go back during the wars that serbian governement has caused.....that country should be punished even more and suffer this is not right

I know for a fact that Minja was coked out of his mind that night, I heard him say it to one of my friends when we were standing next to him at this bar where the beating happened. I had left the bar right before it happened, but a few of my good friends who happened to be right next to the fight as it occurred saw Minja repeatedly kicking the kid IN THE HEAD when he was on the floor, long after this kid stopped being a threat to him.
Regardless of whether not he is a nice or a good person (and I have heard many other students say that about him), he made a mistake that completely ruined another person's life (you dont just get up and start walking around after coming out of a coma, he will need medical assistance for the rest of his life). He should be in prison serving time for his crime, even if he is a 'good guy' and this was an 'accident' and a 'fluke incident'.

no a surprise really. MOST (not all) Serbs are vicious animals without a regard for others who do what they want, when they want. I've lived with many cultures (Bosnians, Serbs Croats, Germans, Italians,Arabs and now Americans) and the Serbs take the cake for the most ruthless and vicious animals who have no regard for others (even more than most black Americans).
This guy will rot in hell.
