Censored: White Newspapers Ignoring Black On White Crime

May 15, 2012

US – When two white newspaper reporters for the Virginian-Pilot were driving through Norfolk, and were set upon and beaten by a mob of young blacks — beaten so badly that they had to take a week off from work — that might sound like news that should have been reported, at least by their own newspaper. But it wasn’t.

The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News Channel was the first major television program to report this incident. Yet this story is not just a Norfolk story, either in what happened or in how the media and the authorities have tried to sweep it under the rug.

Similar episodes of unprovoked violence by young black gangs against white people chosen at random on beaches, in shopping malls, or in other public places have occurred in Philadelphia, New York, Denver, Chicago, Cleveland, Washington, Los Angeles, and other places across the country. Both the authorities and the media tend to try to sweep these episodes under the rug.

In Milwaukee, for example, an attack on whites at a public park a few years ago left many of the victims battered to the ground and bloody. But when the police arrived on the scene, it became clear that the authorities wanted to keep this quiet.

One 22-year-old woman, who had been robbed of her cell phone and debit card, and had blood streaming down her face, said, “About 20 of us stayed to give statements and make sure everyone was accounted for. The police wouldn’t listen to us, they wouldn’t take our names or statements. They told us to leave. It was completely infuriating.”

The police chief seemed determined to head off any suggestion that this was a racially motivated attack by saying that crime is color-blind. Officials elsewhere have said similar things.

A wave of such attacks in Chicago were reported, but not the race of the attackers or victims. Media outlets that do not report the race of people committing crimes nevertheless report racial disparities in imprisonment and write heated editorials blaming the criminal-justice system.

What the authorities and the media seem determined to suppress is that the hoodlum elements in many ghettoes launch coordinated attacks on whites in public places. If there is anything worse than a one-sided race war, it is a two-sided race war, especially when one of the races outnumbers the other several times over.

It may be understandable that some people want to head off such a catastrophe, either by not reporting the attacks in this race war, or by not identifying the race of those attacking, or by insisting that the attacks were not racially motivated — even when the attackers themselves voice anti-white invective as they laugh at their bleeding victims.

Trying to keep the lid on is understandable. But a lot of pressure can build up under that lid. If and when that pressure leads to an explosion of white backlash, things could be a lot worse than if the truth had come out earlier, and steps taken by both black and white leaders to deal with the hoodlums and with those who inflame them.

These latter would include not only race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson but also lesser-known people in the media, in educational institutions, and elsewhere who hype grievances and make all the problems of blacks the fault of whites. Some of these people may think that they are doing blacks a favor. But it is no favor to anyone who lags behind to turn their energies from the task of improving and advancing themselves to the task of lashing out at others.

These others extend beyond whites. Asian-American schoolchildren in New York and Philadelphia have for years been beaten up by their black classmates. But people in the mainstream media who go ballistic if some kid says something unkind on the Internet about a homosexual classmate nevertheless hear no evil, see no evil, and speak no evil when Asian-American youngsters are victims of violence.

Those who automatically say that the social pathology of the ghetto is due to poverty, discrimination, and the like cannot explain why such pathology was far less prevalent in the 1950s, when poverty and discrimination were worse. But there were not nearly as many grievance mongers and race hustlers then.

Former Detroit Michigan Police Chief Robbed At Gunpoint While Mowing His Lawn

May 9, 2012

DETROIT, MICHIGAN – On a well kept Detroit block, mowing the lawn on a Tuesday afternoon is nothing out of the ordinary and, sadly, either is what happened next.

“They stopped and asked if that was Curtis down there. I said, ‘Yes.’ And then they started walking back towards me. Then they [sped] up and with a gun in his hand,” said Stanley Knox.

The two young men were getting ready to rob a former Detroit police chief.

“I was never afraid. I don’t know what I was thinking about,” he told us.

Did he feel that there was a chance they might shoot him?

“I thought about it at one point, yes.”

He wasn’t armed, so Knox tried to physically fight the bad guys off and in the process fell back over his lawnmower.

“They pointed the weapon at me and just gently took it off,” he said.

With Knox down on the ground, they took what they could see, his gold necklace and gold bracelet, and then took off running between the houses.

Neighbor Althea Roberts arrived home just as police converged.

“It’s scary. He’s out here cutting his grass. School was still in. They were picking up kids. I guess they went on a field trip. The church parking lot was full of cars, and then you can’t be out here and taking care of your lawn and somebody [pulls] a gun on you?”

Nearly a dozen officers responded to this crime of opportunity. One noticed the thieves left one thing behind. In the middle of the driveway, Knox’s gold Detroit police chief medallion that apparently had fallen off the chain and has now been taken into evidence.

“They got lucky, though, because they caught him off guard,” Roberts said. “I’m pretty sure it could’ve turned out a lot differently, and I wish it would’ve.”

“Hate for things like that to happen in the city, but it does, every city,” said Knox.

Knox was the police chief in the early nineties. He said he got that medallion for his service. At least he’ll be able to get that back.

The suspects are described as black men about six feet tall, 175 pounds, around 19 to 20 years old.

Moron: Chicago Illinois Savages Attacked And Robbed White Teen Due To Shooting Death Of A Stranger 1200 Miles Away In Florida

April 26, 2012

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – An black 18-year-old suspected of a violent attack on a white teen told Chicago police the beating was motivated by his anger over the Trayvon Martin case in Florida, MyFoxChicago reports.

Alton Hayes III was charged with a hate crime after he and a 15-year-old attacked the 19-year-old man at about 1:00 a.m. on April 17 in Oak Park, a Chicago suburb.

Police say Hayes and his teenage partner, who has not been named since he is a juvenile, picked the man apparently at random and pinned his arms to the side.

Hayes allegedly then picked up a tree branch and demanded the victim give them his belongings, saying, “Empty your pockets, white boy.”

The suspects then rifled through the victim’s pockets, threw him to the ground and punched him numerous times in the head and back. Both suspects are black and the victim is white, according to police.

MyFoxChicago reports Hayes told police he decided to attack his victim because he is angry over the death of Trayvon Martin. Hayes said he chose his victim because he is white.

Hayes was charged with attempted robbery, aggravated battery and a hate crime, all felonies. His teenage comrade was referred to juvenile court.

Trayvon Martin, 17, is the unarmed black teenager who was fatally shot as he walked through a gated community in Sanford, Fla. on Feb. 26. George Zimmerman, who has been charged with second-degree murder, went into hiding Monday as he awaits trial.

Emotions have run high across the US over the incident, in large part because six weeks passed before Zimmerman was charged — leading many African-American community leaders to decry what they perceived as racism in the justice system.

On Saturday night, a white man was beaten by a throng of African-Americans in Mobile, Ala., after telling a group of children to stop playing basketball in the middle of a street — with one witness claiming she heard an assailant exclaim, “Now that’s justice for Trayvon,” WKRG -TV reported.

However, the Mobile Police Department said the assault on Matthew Owens, 40, was not being investigated as a hate crime.

Crimes In New York City Subways Skyrockets 20 To 30 Percent Since January

April 25, 2012

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is reporting a major surge in New York City subway crime.

The agency said pick pockets and other thieves are bumping up the crime rate by more than 20 percent this year compared to last, reports CBS 2’s Dave Carlin.

On her guard Wednesday was East Village resident Mariam Figueroa. She said she doesn’t wear any visible jewelry and her electronics are hidden every time she steps into a station and on to a subway train.

“I’m not showing anything, you know, in the train because I really don’t feel safe,” Figueroa said.

Crime is way up in these areas, to the point where straphangers can be left vulnerable and trapped.

There were 232 robberies in the first quarter of 2012, according to the NYPD. That’s a bump of 31.8 percent.

In addition, there were 393 grand larcenies, mostly iPhones and iPads, during that same period, an increase of 23.6 percent.

Almost a third of the victims in these cases were reportedly asleep when they were robbed, the NYPD said.

“I guess it’s up to you to know not to fall asleep. [Some] can’t really help it, though. You fall asleep you fall asleep,” straphanger Freddie Cantillop said.

As the MTA continues with its “stay awake and stay alert” policy of 30-second public service announcements, some MTA board members want more than just increased patrols. They are pushing for a new prosecutor appointed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to specifically handle subway crimes.

They point to the rap sheet of 69-year-old Thomas Coles, who is heading back to jail for attempting to rob a straphanger. Board members argue his nine-month sentence is too lenient for a repeat offender.

Former NYPD detective and security expert Sal Lifrieri told Carlin no matter what the government does to try and make people safer so much of it is up to the people, themselves.

“Pay attention where your valuables are. Don’t flash money. Don’t show your wallet. Don’t go through your wallet. Don’t make yourself an easier mark,” Lifrieri said.

And it’s not just gadget thieves straphangers have to weary of. On Tuesday, police said they were looking for two suspects in two unrelated crimes on the subway.

One man is wanted for allegedly taking an upskirt picture of a straphanger while the other is wanted for public lewdness, police said.

But at the MTA’s monthly board meeting on Wednesday, Chairman Joseph Lhota insisted crime has decreased month-by-month since January.

“Crime stats are down from March of 2011 to March 2012, so I’m a little bit taken a back by the amount of reports that keep talking about crime increasing on the subways,” he said. “I think the NYPD is doing a very good job monitoring crime.”

Last month, Lhota said he would be meeting with the city’s five district attorneys to discuss the possibility of banning repeat subway crime offenders from the underground system.

Earlier reports Wednesday said NYPD Police Commissioner Ray Kelly was set to meet with Lhota to discuss subway crime, but officials said the two regularly hold meetings and that no special discussion was scheduled.

Baltimore Maryland Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld II Says Attack On White Tourist By Pack Of Savage Black Beasts Wasn’t A Hate Crime

April 11, 2012

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – Baltimore’s police chief today said that the videotaped beating of a white tourist does not appear to be a hate crime, but rather “drunken opportunistic criminality” on the part of a gang of Charm City assailants.

In a radio interview, Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III urged Baltimore residents to “distinguish between criminality and racially motivated crime.” Bealefeld, who is white, warned against “race-baiting” and “fear-mongering” in light of the Trayvon Martin shooting and other recent racially charged incidents.

“There’s no doubt it’s a crime,” Bealefeld said of the March 17 assault. “We need to vigorously hold criminals accountable, and we have to be careful not to be pulled into this race-baiting.”

As Baltimore cops investigate the videotaped beating of a tourist on St. Patrick’s Day, a second clip showing the brutal attack could help police identify members of the mob who knocked the victim to the ground, stole his belongings, and even tore his pants off.

The video, seen above, was shot by an onlooker outside a downtown courthouse, where the tourist was sucker-punched by an attacker. The victim, wearing a Mountain Dew shirt, crumpled to the sidewalk and hit his head.

While on the ground, the man was set upon by about ten attackers, who stole his Tag Heuer watch, money, iPhone, and keys to his Audi, according to police. The dazed and defenseless victim is also punched, kicked, and even hit with a shoe by several assailants. In a final indignity, the man is “teabagged” by a male attacker.

The 1:26 cell phone video–shot by a cameraman who cackled as the beating transpired–was first uploaded to the WorldStar Hip Hop web site on March 30. It was included as part of a 14:22 “fight compilation” of 12 clips showing assorted mayhem.

In a TV news report Friday (which included another view of the Baltimore attack), a detective pledged to hunt down the man’s attackers. “We want to bring these people to justice,” said Det. Nicole Monroe.
