Skip to comments.(Baltimore) MTA looks at racial role in city bus attack
Posted on 12/07/2007 6:51:44 AM PST by Moose4
Maryland Transit Administration Police said last night that they have found no evidence that the severe beating of a 26-year-old woman on a city bus this week was provoked and that they are investigating the attack as a possible racially motivated hate crime.
Nine middle school students have been charged as juveniles with aggravated assault and destruction of property in the Tuesday afternoon attack on a woman and her male companion on the No. 27 bus.
Police said yesterday that they have determined that there were two additional victims in the case - a third passenger and the bus operator who came to his assistance.
Investigators were examining video from a surveillance camera on the bus but had not completed their analysis.

Had I not tripped over a reference to this on Michelle Malkin's blog this morning, I wouldn't have known about this incident. Do you think if nine white kids had shattered a black woman's eyesocket and thrown her off a bus, that would be the case? Right.
One does not merely ride the bus into Baltimordor.
I heard she used the N word and spat on the kids... still no excuse for violence. Assault charges should be pressed. Where is Al Sharphead?
Maybe she was wearing a Steelers jacket.
Surprisingly, it looks like the Bodymore, Murderland MTA is investigating the criminals and not the victims.
The “parents” are apparently defending the little thugs by claiming they were “provoked.” They say the woman spit or perhaps displayed a knife.
Why her doing so would constitute sufficient provocation to justify such an attack is left unsaid.
Apparently the parents aren’t too bright. What they should have claimed is that she used an “ethnic slur.” As we all know, that immediately justifies any and all response up to homicide.
Of course that’s what they’ll CLAIM in order to save their own sorry asses—immediate playing of the race card.
...Baltimore is NOT a safe city....it is a violent place to be avoided....
If she had displayed a knife, she should have used it. Those kids are animals. This is the perfect example of why concealed weapons are necessary.
Baltimore becomes D.C. more each say. Just the worst hellhole in a state which has been taken over by the lefties. I only go back to Maryland to visit family and even that scares me.
ping for update
Does anyone seriously believe that a young white woman got on a bus surrounded by a bunch of blacks in a large inner city and provoked a racial incident calling these kids “nigger”? I don’t think so. I think this is the Jena 6 all over again and that Halloween business out in Long Beach, Ca. where a teen age girl got her face bashed in with a skateboard.
“no evidence that the severe beating of a 26-year-old woman on a city bus this week was provoked and that they are investigating the attack as a possible racially motivated hate crime.”
This is very hard for the Baltimore SUN to swallow.
A white schoolgirl in New York either lost or nearly lost sight in one eye a couple of years ago after a black gang beat her up. The mainstream media buried the story.
“He probably saved this gentleman’s life”
OMG! Someone NOT the criminal scumbag thug was called “gentleman”!
I read that she tried to sit in several different seats and was told NO by these thugs. Finally, she took a seat despite being told not to sit there. And then it all began. I don’t know about the use of any epithets, but if someone were beating on me, some may well come out of my mouth.
Oh, wait, it was.
The real issue is that DC is gentrifying at a fast rate. The lower class folks who can’t afford to stay are being pushed into P.G. County inside the beltway, Southern Maryland, and north to Baltimore...
I’m suprised they didn’t claim the victims hung a up a noose.
‘Mayor Sheila Dixon released a statement saying she was “extremely concerned” about the attack.’
Yet a few weeks ago she went hook, line & sinker for the HOAX of a stupid DRAWING of a “threat” with some vague “noose” on it, and got all enraged about “racism” (you know what kind). In Baltimore, of all places.
Made by a black employee who wanted to cause trouble (because he knows the blacks WILL get all huffed up about it).
