Skip to comments.Knockout: Victims of brutal Downtown Mall assault want arrests, and answers from police
Posted on 12/30/2013 3:06:35 PM PST by armydawg505
A couples late night stroll on the Christmas-lit Downtown Mall turned to terror in the early morning hours of Friday, December 20, when they were brutally assaulted by three men in what appears to have been a random act of violence.
Even though one of the victims, Jeanne Doucette, managed to take photos that appear to show the assailants as they kicked and pummeled her boyfriend Marc Adams to unconsciousness, Charlottesville Police still do not have any suspects. Doucette says there were other witnesses to the crime, which allegedly occurred just outside the Wells Fargo building at around 1am as she and Adams walked from Millers to Rapture, and she is baffled as to why the police havent shared her images more widely with people who could have seen the suspects earlier in the evening.
I cannot understand why they didnt let people know what happened, said Doucette, who still bore injuries from the assault when she met for an interview a week later. Those pictures might have prompted some tips.

Holder will be held accountable after the elections in ‘14.
Protect yourself and then keep silent about it lest the race-baiters come after you.
I’m waiting for the first white to return fire and I mean ‘FIRE’.
I live in a county that is 93% white and am unfortunately lacking in targets.
Only more and more gun control will solve our crime problems...
If the Justice department does not hold these Holderites to a hate crime after charging a white guy with that charge a lynching is in order.
What America needs is a few Paul Kersey’s walking the streets. Just imagine if all honest Americans were allowed to carry concealed, how rare these reports would be. As they say “an armed society is a polite society”. And all those liberals who don’t believe in the Second Amendment? they should have to wear a badge that says “unarmed victim in waiting”.
No. He will not.
Always scan the surroundings. Never ever go anywhere unarmed. You have an obligation to protect your family.
I just cannot believe the cruelty. Clocking innocent folks, especially the elderly.
Can you imagine some six foot dude rearing back and cold cocking an eighty year old guy? That's just freakin horrible.
Demand too much from the cops and they’ll be more than happy to come shoot your dog and body slam you in front of your children until most of your teeth are knocked out. They’re good with family that way.
Oh, you’ll have a Disorderly Conduct arrest on your record forever, and they’ll have your fingerprints and DNA for the same length of time.
Heh. Here you forgot this: “/s”
If you want justice you’ll have to get it yourself. The rule of law is dead now.
My Glock trumps their knock.
Hard to Glock-Off a sucker punch. Just saying.
Lots of interesting comments at the source. Appears this is not the first time something like this has occurred in “Mr. Jefferson’s neighborhood.” Also seems the constabulary and the chamber of commerce think it’s bad for business to talk about it.
Find em’. Kill em’. Repeat as necessary.
I’m 66 years old, I’m female and weigh 130 and have two stents in coronary arteries——I’ve had my CCW for years, but tell me, what the hell good is it going to do me if some 200 lb. teenager hits me in the head? I probably won’t be alive after the fact, and if I shoot him before the fact, I’m in George Zimnmermanville shooting an unarmed “child”. Think about this seriously folks.
If the attackers were of a different race than the victims she needs to contact the US Atty in her area immediately. Get a lawyer to do it if necessary. They’ve set the precedent in TX and they need to follow through. And her congressional representative also.
After reading the article I have to say I agree with myself, they need to take this to a higher level.
You are correct that a weapon won't necessarily save you from an attack.
Only your situational awareness will do that.
A weapon gives you a fall back/back-up position, and might save you from death.
At your age, you should know better than to go out and about in public alone./only slight sarcasm//.
You survived this long, don't relax now.
To a certain degenerate segment of society, you are an extremely attractive target.
Nothing has changed.
The physical condition you described (slight, 66 year old woman with heart stents) suggests you wouldn’t survive a stiff breeze. You’re right: If ANY 200-pounder hit you in the head you’d likely be pushing daisies. Hence my comment about situational awareness. If you see a “200 lb. teenager” or anyone else setting up to cold cock you, you are well within your right to drop his ass, especially being who and what you are.
As for your Zimmermanville coment: He lived, and was acquitted. Yeah, they put him through thr wringer. But he won.
You have to make the decision: Would you rather be “Zimmermanned” or dead?
Life is nothing but choices.
Never in a hundred, never in a thousand, never in a million years.
Looks like some of Holders people are happy navigators (HPN).....
HPN....OK whitey....lets check your voter registrations ....
HPN....Looks like you need to make a couple of adjustments here....
OK now I see it......your colonoscopy is scheduled for next month.....and the insulin will be mailed as before...
HPN Thinks...."this desk job sure beats stealing cell phones and a once a year gig patrolling voting booths with my billy club."
(He also got the message about hiding the screen image of his laptop)
I guess we will see a big drop in Polar Bear Hunting going forward.
