One Of Mark Wahlberg's Victims Thinks The Actor Should NOT Be Pardoned For His Past Crimes!

Another person has taken a stand against Mark Wahlberg.

One of the victims of Mark's reported racially charged attack towards a group of African American school children in 1986, Kristyn Atwood, thinks the actor should NOT be pardoned for a hate crime he committed two years later.

When Kristyn was just a young girl in Boston, she was allegedly assaulted by The Gambler star and a few of his friends while on a school field trip. Wahlberg tossed rocks and ugly epithets at the group of kids, an experience which understandably left a negative impression on Atwood.

Kristyn's history with Mark is the reason why she feels he shouldn't receive a pardon for attacking a Vietnamese man in 1988.

She explains:

"I don't think he should get a pardon. I don't really care who he is. It doesn't make him any exception. If you're a racist, you're always going to be a racist. And for him to want to erase it I just think it's wrong."

Wow. While we definitely think the 43-year-old's actions were awful, we also believe people can change.

Interestingly enough, Kristyn's Caucasian teacher, Mary Belmonte, has a different view:

"I believe in forgiveness. He was just a young kid — a punk — in the mean streets of Boston. He didn't do it specifically because he was a bad kid. He was just a follower doing what the other kids were doing."

Considering Mary doesn't know Mark personally, we're not sure we can fully support her opinion.

So, does this revelation change YOUR opinion about Wahlberg's case?

    Once a racist, always a racist? With that type of mentality how can we expect any positive changes in the world? I think Mary had the right idea when she said he was just a kid. Is everyone proud of every moment of their childhood and every choice they've ever made? In this particular case I'm my sure if he deserves a pardon, but that's because I don't know him. If he's made strides to improve upon his errors and repent his wrongdoings on these people then all the best to him.

    He does not deserve a pardon that would only be given to him because he's a celebrity. If you want to start pardoning people then take EVERYONE who was convicted of a crime at whatever age he was convicted and if they have not done anything criminal since, then pardon them all. I believe that he is still a racist and frankly don't think wanting to have guns should be a reason for a pardon.

    Re: MiuMiu – So what you say at the bottom, is that we should all think that there are no black people or black celebrities who make comments or racial slurs against whites? Basically this was the still unconfirmed allusion of one of your next arguments?

    What does your comment have to do with anything, troll? This is specifically about Mark Wahlburg and not anyone else

    Oh he's rich AND famous? He'll get whatever he wants in the legal system. Because some judge knows him or some judge's kid is a fan etc. The legal system is so corrupt, it's all rich a-holes scratching each others backs.

    Once a racist, always a racist? that is categorically untrue. People are capable of change. I am sure that what happened to you was very traumatic, but if you don't learn forgiveness you are still giving that circumstance power over your life! I don't think he should be pardoned either, but not for the same reasons. I think the only reason he is trying to get it done is because of his stardom. Wrong answer. He did it and his record needs to reflect that. I believe only innocent people should be pardoned. Just my opinion…

    Gee Piggy, Mark should be put on Celebrity Big Brother with YOU! If he can stand it, he'd get his pardon! Lol

    I don't know or care if he's a racist or not. Do not give him or any celebrities special treatment. That's probably why they get caught over and over again doing the same thing cause they know money talks.
