MUNHALL, Pa. — Munhall police have charged four teens in connection with a robbery and assault of a 26-year-old man.

Rahim Jamel Gene Thomas, 19, of Homestead, a 16-year-old male from Homestead, a 17-year-old male from Homestead, and a 16-year-old male from Munhall are all charged with robbery, aggravated assault and conspiracy.

The victim, who was lying on the sidewalk Friday about 8:30 p.m. at Farragut Street at Main Street, flagged down a patrolling officer.

The man claimed he had been robbed of a Subway sandwich, Munhall police Chief Pat Campbell said.

The victim described the robbers as four black men he didn't know. He was then transported to UPMC Mercy for his injuries.

In case people don’t know, Homestead and Munhall are in the Pittsburgh metro area. Homestead is a former (famous) mill town.

Clearly a WASP.

A 4 on 1 brutal beat down of a probable white victim?

To quote Jamie Foxx of Django fame: “How Black is that?”

And the take was one (1), Subway Sandwich. Next they are going to start staking out the local McDonalds.

OTOH the Dunkin donuts is still a safe place to pick up some calories.

I especially liked the way they treated it as a laughable lark perpetrated by some innocent young kids.

Hey, it's the media that is the flaming bag of poo, not the crime.

Correction: The victim was white, not probably white.I did not see the video before my first post.

Although,it was a sure bet from the get go.

And now is home to high concentrations of Amish...

The objective was to beat up the guy. Taking the sandwich was an afterthought.

A short jail sentence = “Ain’t no thing.”

Twenty lashes with a cat o’ nine tails, on the other hand, would be an attention-getter.

When I was growing up, in the Amish enclave of South Oakland, Munhall was a beautiful suburb. If I get to move again, I’ll just keep going east (love, love, love Ligioner)...so maybe...if I live long enough, and move far enough east, I’ll finally have REAL Amish as neighbors:)

I have friends in Munhall, and yes, it was a nice area once. People thought the Waterfront development would improve things a little but I don’t know.

All too many across the Nation haven’t any clue there is a thing called the Knockout Game thanks to the PC MSM.

I have advised everybody on my mailing list about it, and advised them to do a search for “The Knockout Game” on their computers.

http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=what+is+the+knockout+game&ei=utf-8&fr=b1ie7

The more people know about it, the safer they are as they know their communities, and where to be most on the alert, or those places to avoid if possible.

“I try to think the best of people. I didn’t think I was going to get beat up,” the [victim] said. “It’s senseless. There’s no call for it.”

They didn't take his wallet or cell phone. They just took the sandwich and beat him. The "reason" for it was entertainment. The sooner people understand that, the safer they will be.

Why is such a punishment considered barbarous today? It would be over in a few minutes, and the criminal could then resume his life rather than spending weeks or months in detention. And the recidivism rate would probably be lower.

Investing in expensive infrastructure won’t make a community nice once it passes a certain percentage of “teens”. Look at the money poured into Baltimore’s Inner Harbor or the Kansas City School Experiment, and those cities and those school systems are crap because of teens.

“Teen” is a word they use to make us think it’s about children. The perp is 19. That’s legally an adult. They do this deliberately to minimize the seriousness of the crime.

Now you know why they are disarming innocent, productive, normal, non-violent people. (So the underclass can waltz right in and take what is “rightfully” theirs)

Assaulting a guy for a Subway sandwich? Now, I could understand if it was a Jimmy John’s Gargantuan.

Encyclopedia Britannica (1798)

NEGRO, Homo pelli nigra, a name given to a variety of the human species, who are entirely black, and are found in the Torrid zone, especially in that part of Africa which lies within the tropics. In the complexion of negroes we meet with various shades; but they otherwise differ far from other men in all the features of their face. Round cheeks, high cheek-bones, a forehead somewhat elevated, a short, broad, flat nose, thick lips, small ears, ugliness, and irregularity of shape, characterize their external appearance. The negro women have the loins greatly depressed, and very large buttocks, which give the back the shape of a saddle. Vices the most notorious seem to be the portion of this unhappy race: idleness, treachery, revenge, cruelty, impudence, stealing, lyng, profanity, debauchery, nastiness and intemperance, are said to have extinguished the principles of natural law, and to have reproofs of conscience. They are strangers to every sentiment of compassion, and are an awful example of the corruption of man when left to himself.
