Group Nearly Beat Teen To Death - Walking Free For Horrific Reason

The 18-20-year-old men who assaulted a 17-year-old high school student have been released on bond. The mother of the victim says that the bond should have been higher.

Quartez Lamar Walker, 20, was charged with first-degree assault in the beating of high school student Brian Ogle. His bond was set at $20,000. Bobby Ronchea Brown, 19, La Noah Grant Ealy, Jr, 18, and Daveon Shamareya Nix, 20, have been charged with second-degree assault. Their bonds were set at $15,000 each. The town has mixed reactions to the men being released on bail bond.

The four black men, former students at Sylacauga High School in Sylacauga, Alabama, sought out the white victim, Brian Ogle, after the school's homecoming game. Ogle had apparently offended the men after he voiced his support for police officers in an online Black Lives Matter discussion.

“It seemed to be a planned incident. They planned it, this kid was singled out for some reason,” said Sylacauga Police Chief Kelley Johnson.

According to the district attorney, the crime did not meet the statute for a hate crime.

Ogle suffered from a severely broken skull in multiple places, and brain bleed. He remains in the intensive care unit. His condition has gone from critical to fair, according to the hospital.

"I feel that our District Attorney should have made the bond higher. I mean, obviously, people get charged with lesser crimes every day and their bonds are way higher than this. I know our [police] chief Kelley Johnson done all he could possibly do," said Ogle's mother, Brandi Allen.
