Pittsburgh police get arrest warrant for juvenile in Downtown teacher assault

Just another racial attack in Obama's America.

(Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) -- Pittsburgh police are investigating a vicious, apparently unprovoked assault on a teacher last week in a Downtown alley that was captured on video.

Teacher James Addlespurger of the Pittsburgh High School for the Creative and Performing Arts was walking down Tito Way near the Benedum Theater on Thursday afternoon as six young men walked in the other direction.

Suddenly one of the men -- not even the closest one to Mr. Addlespurger -- stepped over to the teacher and socked him in the face, knocking him out with one punch.

If this were reversed, if 6 white kids knocked out a black teacher, Wolfie Blitzer, Soledad O’Brien and the chorus of Left Wing MSM would have another Trayvon to screech about...

It would be 24/7 news, Jesse and Al giving interviews and Obama and Holder making comments on how the assaulted man looked like their uncle or father.

Oh, another B on W crime...the Media is silent.

Dog biting man, for the 1,000-th time.

Look like Obumbler supporters to me. I guess this is what Obumbler meant when he said that he would bring the races together!

Jeez, how did I know that the group of white teens loitering around at the start of the video was not the group of teens I was supposed to be looking out for?

If Obama had a son he’d look just like the thug who hit the teacher.

The video was on our local evening news. They would give no description of the perp even though it was obvious from the video. The teacher is just walking by, minding his own business. The pack with the perps goes strutting down the alley as if it is a big joke.

Three guesses on the races of the people who rush to the teacher's aid.

3 1/2 years ago, knowing what to expect from an Obama Presidency, I figured there would be stories like this
every week. This happening now with 4 weeks to go before
the Bama gets thrown out of office, is like Michelle getting
in all her expensive, staff-heavy taxpayer funded vacations and spending sprees before the inevitable happens and she and the hubby have to go looking for new digs.
Having said that, I didn’t know there were Amish in Pittsburgh!

I attended an inner-city school in the mid 90’s. I learned very quickly about raw unprovoked violence. I also learned that some folks only understand violence as a means of communication and expression. You simply can’t communicate or negotiate with these subhumans.

How is the fact that he is a teacher relevant to the story? Since they haven't made any arrests yet they don't know if he was knocked out by a student who didn't like him or if it was just for the fun of it, totally random. Would the attack have been any less vicious if it were on a sales clerk for Walgreen's coming back from lunch?

If you read the comment under the article, this is apparently a new “game” called “Knockout King”.

I’ve read about this happening before...where for no other reason a group of “youngsters” likes to go around knocking random pedestrians in the chops.

Good Lord, what is wrong with you? I am asking how this man is because he got punched in the head and I am concerned as a fellow human being. I referred to him as “the teacher” I was not asking how this man is because he is a teacher.

You need to check your attitude.

You are obviously a racist. You should be asking how that poor young man's hand is after that government agent slammed his face into it.

Might not be new, but it’s certainly deadly. What if that guy would have landed the wrong way on that curb or street? He could be dead and that “nice, young boy”, as I’m sure his mother would have called him, would be up on a murder charge.

Black-on-white hate crime.

Rich Lowry and “National Review” - are you watching?

Any chance you will un-fire John Derbyshire?

How many more white skulls have to be crushed before you guys at least apologize to Derb?

This crap has been going on for at least 20 years.

I have a good friend in Austin - male, blonde hair, blue eyes, perfect white skin.

Early 1990’s, he's sitting on bus reading, some Black dude walks by exiting the bus, slams a left hook into the side of my friend's face.

No one on the bus did a thing, just watched the Black guy get off and slowly walk down the street.

I'm surprised the black boys didn't gang rape the white woman walking by, following the assault on the teacher. IMO this is a death penalty case; Attempted murder. The victim could've easily died upon striking the pavement.

The assailant should be thrown into a lions cage at the zoo and force his gang to watch.. I hope they catch that disgusting animal before it attacks more white people.

There’s another popular game, called Polar-Bearing, where they look for grey-haired men to knock out.

Just like this kid just a few weeks ago. Hard to find any info on the race of the perp but you don't need to guess.

If you watch the video, they show a photo of the suspect—17-year-old black high school student (already accused of an earlier assault).

No, the article referred to him as the teacher and gave his entire resume out. I see no other reason for that information than to show the world how dangerous the teaching profession is when it comes time for the next salary adjustments.

You need to check your attitude.

My attidue checks out A-OK. Your concern for your fellow human beings is commendable, even if in their misfortune they are placed on a pedestal regular human beings don't qualify for.

Parents have turned the perp in. From the article: "Authorities said if the attacker knew Addlespurger, he could be facing up to 20 years in prison. “If he was attacked, because he is in a protected class which a teacher is in, it’s an automatic felony,” defense attorney Frank Walker said.As it is , he is only being charged with simple assault.

Earlier that morning Timothy McNerney, running back for Washington & Jefforson College and another White football player were attacked by, wait...6 black males. McNerney was beaten to death. This happened about 25 miles from this attack. The police said the same thing " A random attack".
