Skip to comments.Tape shows beating on bus of Belleville West student (with video)

BELLEVILLE A Belleville West High School student was beaten aboard a bus on the way to school Monday, and a police spokesman said the beating could be racially motivated.
The 17-year-old victim was white and the teen assailants were black. Police released a video of the beating, which shows the victim being punched repeatedly while other students on the bus gather to watch, some cheering. It doesn't appear that the victim did anything to provoke an attack and tried only to defend himself. Police said it all unfolded in a five-minute span.
The victim was trying to find a seat and was told by two students he could not sit next to them, police said. When he did sit down, one teen tried to push him out of his seat then began grabbing the victim's neck and punching him in the face.
The victim eventually returned to his seat, but another student began taunting him a few minutes later. The victim was then struck in the face.

I wonder when Sharpton or J.Jackson will announce their outrage.
I don’t care what color they are. If that was my kid I would want them all dead. Not saying I would do it...but I honestly don’t know what I would do if I came face to face with one.
I do know that if that was my kid the rest of my life would be spent somehow trying to right the wrong that had been perpetrated.
BELLEVILLE -- A Belleville police spokesman now says an incident where a white student was beaten by teen black assailants on a bus may not be racially motivated.
It was premature on my part, said Belleville Police Capt. Don Sax. It was my personal and emotional comment after only seeing the video briefly.
Sax said police interviewed the 17-year-old Belleville West High student. However, he said he was unaware of what the student told police.
Don’t hold your breath.
Yep, and it’s time whites stop lying to themselves. Decent white folks are going to have to take a stand, and maybe an armed stand. And let the decent folk of other races join in. They can choose between right and wrong.
If we don’t do something pretty quickly our cities will be burned, no one will be able to run a buisiness without being robbed and/or killed, It’s already like that in some places.
Yes, and we are very nearly there, IMHO.
YES THEY CAN!
The poor dears who did the beating probably had a tough upbringing and, besdies, the white kid deserved it because.... well, because he’s white. Thank God it wasn’t a black student being beaten by whites. The two reverends would be all over it, elbowing each other aside for the TV cameras, and the Amateur-in-Chief would also have to weigh in on it, as he seems prone to do — whether he is prone to do on every local racially-charged issue around the country (e.g., the Cambridge, Mass. professor case), whether he has the facts or not. And they wonder why we cross the street when we see them coming....
Wrong, what do you think the hate crime charge is for?
Beat up a jerk that happens to be gay and they will charge you with a felony saying you did it because he was gay, not because he was a jerk. They try and prove that you were thinking how much you hated him for being gay while you punched him, not that he deserved it for another reason.
Hehehe, that works really well also... :)
Calling someone a socialist, opposing higher taxes, opposing big government, opposing ACORN = “Racist”
A gang of black kids ruthlessly beating their white classmate = equalitarian.
You know I was watching Beck and the others last night and one of the points made wa that the libtards response to EVERYTHING nowadays it "That's Racist!" None of the recent controversies has anything to do with race. Healthcare, Cap and Tax, you name it. However our objections to teir intentions is always "racist". The commen was that the danger they run into is that enough of this behavior on their part and IT WILL BE about race. It was pointed out that the "National Tea Party" (and ALL the Tea Parties) had been pretty white.
So who's fault is that? I think the fact that the few blacks who do choose to join us demonstrates that it is not our intolerance that keeps blacks away. Rather it is the fact that apparently blacks are (mostly) "takers" and see the gummint as their source of things to take. What happens as "it does become about race" especially as the gummmint becomes unable to pay for the stuff they take?
You all have seen this sort of thing enough times to know: keep your white kids away from black kids.
If you don’t want them beating and abused, that is.
Call me racist if you must but, damn, how much of this do you need to see?
I grew up in a black neighborhood. I was beaten quite a few times.
Fortunately, I grew to over six foot by the time I reached high school—and I was mean by then and knew how to handle them, and how to stay away from groups of them.
Keep your kids away, or these videos keep coming. Remember, there are likely hundreds of these incidents for every one video you see.
Wow. Thanks for the link - it painted a very sobering picture.
Thanks for the information and I agree with your observations.
I visited Belleville to go to the shrine of Our Lady of The Snows. I thought the area was beautiful. But I was familiar with ESL’s reputation and warned my husband about it.
Which both students is he referring to? Is he talking about the victim? Cause in this wonderful world zero tolerance means the victim is responsible if he defends himself.
Oh and no racial problems in school talk means “we do not have any cross burnings on the lawn.” The idea of black on white or black on brown crime being racially motivated never, ever occurs to them. And what about the black kid who is set upon by ghetto thugs for acting too white? Isn’t that also racial?
You are right. It was the sound the whips made as they cracked them over the heads of the cattle. The first cattle drive was in Florida.
Ahh the fresh scent of peaceful diversity, isn’t it wonderful.
Keep in mind that many law abiding Blacks are just as angry and disgusted as anyone else with these thugs. Worse they often are not able to protect or defend themselves because (wouldn’t you know it) White and Black liberal government officials have enacted the most Draconian gun control measures for high crime cities and regions.
Deputize law abiding residents of high crime areas and let them deal with such punks when they come across a crime in progress. Heck with waiting for officials. There would be a lot less crime if justice was fleet of foot and steady of draw.
I worry that Blacks are being lumped together as somehow all being responsible for the criminal behavior of such thugs. When I was in 8th grade a Black girl started to push me around. A group of other Black girls came to my defense. So please remember decent people come in all races.
Most of them are defenseless, sad to say. Also, most white kids do not come from a culture of violence, which puts them at a great disadvantage when forced to rub elbows with the dregs of society.
"...antagoniser usually has to fight in packs 5 on 1..."
That's par for the course. Keep in mind that this demographic was not raised on old John Wayne movies, like much of us here have. The concept of a fair fight is foreign to them.
It's been said that there's been a one-way race war going on in this country for the last 50 years. What we've seen here is merely a reminder that the said race war continues to this day.
Has anyone heard how the victim is doing?
Well, we are not into that whole victimology thing. That’s the problem with playing the victim. Once you start, you always get to do it.
Break a few legs and this stuff stops. That’s the way the gang bangers handle it.
This doesn’t happen often with home schooled kids. Also, the President doesn’t get to pontificate to them whenever he wants without your permission.
Just following Obama’s advise to his tribe. Heck, be glad they are not tossing us into a soup pot.
“Get in their face, if they bring a knife, we bring a gun, it is our time now.....”
Obama and creeps such as those in the video are going to bring back the “N word”, and probably already have.
I feel something building that is going to burst.
I hope to God that the family gets an attorney, files charges, demands the arrest of the kids who hit him, and sues the Sh*t out of the school bus company and everyone. And ask for additional damages because it’s a hate crime.
You are all wrong. this is not an actual bus ride. This is a video game in which the white kid doesn’t do the right things and the gangsters beat him up.
It’s just a video game.
“The... victim was white and the teen assailants were black
THAT never happens. /sarc”
LOL.....wait...I feel sorry for the white kid. He needs to move out of that damned area at once.
bump for later
Captain Sax is a lilylivered girlyman.
That’s what I kind of figured. And if they interviewed the little dirtbags that did this, how does he not know the situation....
True. In this videotape of the bus beating, I saw a group of sweetfaced young ladies (black) who looked horrified, and their body language showed that they were very upset.
It’s not the black girls so much as the black boys who instigate and perpetrate such violence.
Boys growing up without fathers. 70% of young black boys.
Although I agree with you, I put your response (and my frustration in typing this reply) in the same category as asking the good muslims to stand up and denounce the islamofacists. I am waiting for the majority of blacks who do not stand with Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, and who agree with Bill Cosby, that the problems in the black community are not the fault of whites but actually the fault of government welfare, the entitlement mentality, and black racism.
When getting good grades is bad because it makes you too white, that points to a learned racist response created by multiple generations of confusion brought on by first a demand for integration followed by a demand for segregation. If our mutual optimism is to be confirmed, we need to see a grass roots black effort to denounce the RAP and bling generation, and meaningful movement toward ending the broken record of blaming whites for all of their problems. The animals on the bus this morning were only acting out on the message they continuously receive through the so-called black leadership and black entertainment as promoted by organizations like Acorn and the New Black Panthers.
Patriotic Democrats like JFK and Harry Truman are flipping over in their graves like the positive thinking black leaders who followed Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and actually believed in his message.
I just learned something new!
I now know why he doesn’t care when Jimmy cracks corn! They’re makin moonshine! Corn Sqeezins!
There is a warning the lyrics may offend some...
“Jimmy crack corn and I don’t care”
Then googling the lyrics to that old song I found this and it makes my head hurt -couldn’t read it all...
This is what a large percentage of blacks are taught from the cradle - beat, kill, steal from, rape, hustle, shakedown, sue whitey - every day, all day. And most of these people are being supported in full or in part by hard working taxpayers like us in one way or another.
