FIU Running Back Kendall Berry Stabbed To Death

Posted by Media Outrage on March 26, 2010

Florida International University running back Kendall Berry was stabbed to death during an incident on campus last night.

FIU running back Kendall Berry was stabbed to death in an incident on the school’s main Miami campus late Thursday night, immediately sending shock and grief across the university community and putting police on a search for multiple suspects.

Berry, 22, was stabbed around 9 p.m., said Miami-Dade police Det. Javier Baez. Police were interviewing “several people that observed the incident,” Baez said, though he could not confirm if any suspect was in custody.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kendall’s family,” FIU President Mark B. Rosenberg said in a news release. “We are here to support them and our entire university community as all of us come to terms with this tragedy.”

FIU’s athletic department did not have further comment, and messages left for athletic director Pete Garcia and football coach Mario Cristobal were not immediately returned. Shortly after the university confirmed Berry’s death, FIU indefinitely postponed football coaching clinics scheduled for Friday and Saturday.

The football team’s annual spring game is scheduled for Wednesday. It’s unknown if that would take place as planned.

Baez said the stabbing took place just outside the front doors of the campus rec center, where he said the football team and other FIU athletes train.

Berry, from Haines City, Fla., was involved in an argument with one or more people, Baez said.

“One produced some type of a weapon and stabbed him,” Baez said.

Television images showed several students, including some identified as FIU athletes, hugging and crying later Thursday night near the spot where the stabbing took place. One student dropped to her knees in grief just inside the doorway, screaming.

Berry had 164 all-purpose yards in limited use as a freshman in 2007, appearing in all 12 FIU games that season. He sat out the 2008 season with a knee injury and then had some breakout moments in 2009, rushing for three touchdowns in a span of 13 minutes against Middle Tennessee on Nov. 7 and following that up with two more scores the following week in a win over North Texas.

Berry finished last season with a team-best seven touchdowns, despite not playing in the season’s first seven games because of continued rehab from the knee injury.

“When you put the football in his hands, that kid can do some unbelievable things,” Cristobal said late last season of Berry.

FIU officials said they did not recall another killing on the school’s campus.

Mediaoutrage–  This is beyond tragic.  His family is in our prayers.  We have to stop the violence people.

    This is very sad. Instead of making peace, some people are breaking peace! And killing people over something stupid! All of this violence has got to stop people. We as an American Nation are suppose to be loving and helping each other. I have always prayed for all violence to come to an end, because it is nothing but satan controlling minds! Mothers are killing their own flesh and blood, for no reason! If not that, you put them in garbage bags, dumpters! selling them! Everyone that does such harsh crimes deserves the dealth penalty! People molasting children! bullies attacking our children at schools, for nothing! Too afraid to ride a school bus because of bullies! this has got to stop! As far as our children, it starts at home with the parents, and I wish a bill was passed, that each and every child that are a bully. Thier parents would have to join some angry management program alone with their child, for a certain amount of time. I really fault some parents for most violence happening,now. Maybe some children parents had their children grow up in an bad environment, and if the children are around a lot of violence at home or in the household, they take it to the public and to the schools, taking their anger out on our principals, teachers, and students. You even have some teachers, that have became violent in the school systems, they as well need to join a angry manangement program, without taking their problems out on students and other staff. The Principals in the schools need to notice each of the staffs changing behaviors. I just wish all of the violence will stop.

    I read an article on this website recently where a new unmarried mother published her blow job session with some black celebrity , the rage these children must feel, hell I was feeling rage, stumbled into this website, found people here that gave that jar, you know, like soldiers in a war that are constantly looking at hideous things all around and they, hey are you ok, shake it off, regroup

    Excerpt from Cornel West, “Black people have always been in America’s wilderness in search of a promised land. Yet many black folk now reside in a jungle ruled by a cutthroat market morality devoid of any faith in deliverance or hope for freedom.”

  13. satire said

    More excerpts from Cornel West, “What has changed? What went wrong? … None of us fully understands why the cultural structures that once sustained black life in America are no longer able to fend off the nihilistic threat. I believe that two significant reasons why the threat is more powerful now than ever before are the saturation of market forces and market moralities in black life and the present crisis in black leadership. The recent market-driven shattering of black civil society–black families, neighborhoods, schools, churches, mosques–leaves more and more black people vulnerable to daily lives endured with little sense of self and fragile existential moorings. … But it must be recognized that the nihilistic threat contributes to criminal behavior.
    Definition of nihilism: characterized by inept state control to peasant apathy, The rejection of all moral principles; •nihilist – someone who rejects all theories of morality or religious belief

    Excerpts from Cornel West continues: “What is to be done about this nihilistic threat? Is there really any hope, given our shattered civil society, market-driven cororate enterprises, and white supremacism? … Like alcoholism and drug addiction, nihilism is a disease of the soul. It can never be completely cured, and there is always the possibility of relapse. But there is always a chance for conversion–a chance for people to believe that there is hope for the future and a meaning to struggle….The politics of conversion proceeds principally on a locl level–in those institutions in civil society still vital enough to promote self-worth and self-affirmation. It surfaces on the state and national levels only when grass-roots democratic organizations put forward a collective leadership that has earned the love and respect of and most important, has proved itself accountable to these organizations. This collective leadership must exemplify moral integrity, character, and democratic statesmanship within itself and within its organizations.

    Excerpts from Cornel West continues “The neglect of our public infrastructure, for example–our water and sewage systems, bridges, tunnels, highways, subways, and streets–reflects not only our myopic economic policies, which impede productivity, but also the low priority we place on our common life.

    The tragic plight of our children clearly reveals our deep disregard for public well-being. About one out of every five children in this country lives in poverty, including one out of every two black children and two out of every five Hispanic children. ….

    Most of our children–neglected by overburdened parents andn bombarded by the market values of profit-hungry corporations–are ill equipped to live lives of spiritual and cultural quality….

    Let us hope and pray that the vast intelligence, imagination, humor, and courage of Americans will not fail us. Either we learn a new language of empathy and compassion, or the fire this time will consume us all…..
