Skip to comments.Tape shows beating on bus of Belleville West student (with video)
Posted on 09/15/2009 6:23:49 AM PDT by blueyon
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.

Unless and until the stupid “hate crime” status is eliminated through repeal, we suffer an uneven playing field by shunning “hate crime” status for the epidemic of violent black-on-white crime. Until then, we have to fight fire with fire. “Hate crime” status brings enhanced sentencing, so it’s more than just “crap.” Until blacks are punished for attacking whites for their skin color, they aren’t going to get the message that they can’t attack whites for their skin color. I don’t care what their reasons are or how many excuses the sociologists make for them. They choose to violently victimize whites because they are white. This has happened in every African country where blacks have gained power and it’s happening here. Their reasons for victimizing whites, to the extent that they have any, irrational as they are, are completely irrelevant and of no interest to me nor should they be to anyone else.
Your Dad made just one mistake: He told the cops.
I’m not talking about the decent ones, there are many, of course. That goes without saying, or at least I thought it did.
The fact remains that if you allow yourself or your kids to get near groups of young, poor black kids you are asking for medical bills.
I’ve seen too many people get hurt.
There is battling racism, which I support wholeheartedly, then there is suicidal behavior.
Take my advice, or call me racist, I don’t care, really. But don’t call me or my kids layed-up in the hospital, or dead.
The Davies J-Curve is an uncanny way of perceiving social movements: they are the result of empowerment rather than deprivation. Those supressed have no power to weild; as power is gained, impatience for desired outcomes increases, and power is wielded to obtain it. The Civil Rights movement was just so.
I’d say that any J-Curve we might be heading into now with the black community will be one with a conservative bent: expectations for the Obama presidency flatly and already fly far above reality, so whatever of his agenda he passes will not meet those expectations, and the J-Curve gap will explode.
Just think about the black middle and upper classes, and how much their daily expectations diverge from the socialist outcomes Obama is pushing. They will no more like the higher taxes, crappy health services, and flat or inflationary economy that Obama is pushing than conservatives.
If the races were truly “equal” the press would be calling this what it is: A HATE CRIME!
Its ironic because whites for the past 40 years have had reduced expectations with the onslaught of quotas, affirmative action, and the belittling of western civilization in general.
The next ten years will be interesting.
The Police are trying to prevent a riot, so they changed their story and say it was not racially motivated. Although everyday, the blacks on the bus won’t let this white kid sit on the bus. What do you expect from animals!
Is that you buckwheat?
Your generalizations are not borne out by the facts.
Crime, single mom families, welfare dependency,failure rates are heavily skewed minority on a per capita basis.
Some is racial (a few percentage points) but the big problem is that the nanny state has bred blacks to expect failure, to admire the gangsta ethic instead of the work ethic, and to partayyyyyy instead putting away for a rainy day.
Your check is in the mail....
This recently happened in Bowie, MD. Blacks jumped a little white kid out riding his bike and beat him to death. The story was quickly hushed up and nary a cry of racism from the local media.
Looks like someone got to the captain....
Great point. And, indeed, interesting times await us.
Happens ever day.
And it doesn’t have to be racial.
When Malcom X, I mean, Obama, gets his civilian paramilitary comprised of the youth of this nation which is just as large, just as well-funded and just as well-armed as the military what will he make of these angry children? Angry youth with a ready-made paramilitary peer group indoctrinated into Marxist/Leninist/Communist groupthink with access to weaponry and empowered to quell opposition to Malcom X, I mean, Obama? Or, are we looking at the next generation of ACORN/Community Organizers International? We need to stop excusing this kind of ‘reverse racism’ because it excuses criminal behavior based upon race.
I saw and felt it to in the 80’s. In a new school and got attacked in a crowded hallway. Attacked from behind without provocation and did not know the boy who did it. That boy just hated whitey and I was happy to have gotten away as quickly as I did. I was always aware of my surroundings after that.
I did or do not think you are racist. I was just concerned that these thugs were being seen as typical of all Blacks. And I agree with your points.
It’s good to know you had a bright student who was able to get out of the quagmire and into a private school.
Your description of her experience in the public school and her torment by other blacks does little to dispel the stereotypes you find racist and offensive.
You’re not a racist & you’re 100% right. 0bozo has accelerated black/white/hispanic racial tensions 1000 fold. He is the epitome of racism & hatred. The kids on the bus doing the beating & harassing of the lone white kid, should literally have the stuffings kicked out of them...and I hope they do some day. We are fast approaching this day of reckoning in Amerika. Be ready to protect & defend yourself with all available means.
No, actually there is such a thing as hate crimes, but they are covered under laws already existing for rape, murder, assult, etc. In reality the overwhelming majority of “hate crime” assults, rapes & murders, are perpetuated almost entirely by hate-filled black racists against white people. It is time for whites to stand up and fight back with any & all means.
Is this what the liberals call “white privilege?”
of course its not racial.....
after watching that bunch of animals attack the lone kid and the bus driver simply telling them to stop...those parents ought to sue the pants off the kids and the school district....that kid will be wealthy...
Something is either a crime, or it is not. Hate is both irrelevant and not a legal term.
where is the leadership?...
the difference between white animals and black animals is that the blacks attack in packs.......thus, much more dangerous....
“The last few months, we have been witnessing the face of black racism and rage, all the while proclaiming their victimhood...”
In the cities you mean? Out here in the country, we will stick to our guns, and if they show up with all their angst and hate, well..if they step foot on my property I will introduce them to Mr. Smith and Mrs. Wesson. Dont care how many of em there are.
“the difference between white animals and black animals is that the blacks attack in packs”
- And hence, the extreme inter-dependence on the Democrat Party.
Nowadays people realize that they don’t have to do anything; everyone knows where “they” are, and all commerce has naturally migrated away to safer areas/neighborhoods (while you can completely avoid the “bad” areas). Urban blacks have been reduced to the status of “trading post Injuns”, dependent on the good graces of others for the most rudimentary existence while watching the world (and numerous incoming waves of immigrants) pass them by.
However violent Africa may seem at times, I must say that the people involved see a world in which they intend to play a part.
We have to update the lyrics on the song you posted:
The white man is my master
but Jesus is my Lord
The White man talks all day
Oh Lord do I get bored!
Updated for 2010
The black man is my dictator
but Jesus is my Lord
The black man talks all day
Oh Lord do I get bored!
Use their own rules against them. ( Saul Alinsky)
I guess the kid deserved it, since whites are inherently racist, according to “Newspeak”.
Some schools in the U.S. are so morally corrupt that it would be better for a child NEVER to attend! I **really** mean this!
Even if the child were to remain illiterate and innumerate, this is a better situation for them than to ever step foot in some of the schools the government runs. I *seriously* mean it.
I have witnessed young people and adults arrive at the community college with less than third grade reading and math skills. Many held graduation diplomas from the local high schools. By attending remedial courses at the community college, I have personally seen how motivated adults can learn in 2 years what their government schools failed to teach them in 13. These are the same kids who just weeks or months earlier were attending a government school. The community college taught them but the government school didn’t.
So....Yes, I **seriously** mean it. There are schools that are so dangerous and morally corrupt that it would be better for the child to **never** attend. If they are motivated ( and chances are better that if they don’t attend they will be better motivated) they can always find an education if they want one.
I attended a Jr. High School for a year before my dad moved us out to the country.
It was freakin horrible.
The school was about 65% black, approx 15 to 20% white.
I didn't even know what racism or prejudice was, until I went to that school.
I grew up knowing that black people hated white people...not the other way around.
Took many years to work through that and to realize the truth about what was going on.
To watch that dorky little white kid get savagely beaten by a “crowd” of blacks....just brought those emotions back to the surface.
Man that pisses me off.
Anyone gotta cigarette.
Just where do you come up with this nonsense? Both science and Scripture agree that all of humankind comes from the same single source of two original parents; so human race, if we are to stick to the animal kingdom as you suggest, can be said to be like breeds of dogs--as like humans, they come in different shapes, sizes and colors BUT ALL SHARE THE SAME KIND OF DNA.
I don't disagree with a lot of what you've pointed out, however it should be emphasized that where there are strong two-parent nuclear families involved and parental interest in their children's education, that race really doesn't matter much when it comes to achieving success.
My experience with high achieving African-American students found them to mostly be involved with their churches (in choirs, youth groups, etc.) and in school activities which promoted good citizenship (junior ROTC, etc.).
Low-achieving African-American students mostly came from large single-parent, non-involvement families where drugs and violence were often occurring. So, IMO, it had nothing whatsoever to do with race and everything to do with socio-economic class.
It’s a hate crime. Where’s Janet? And Holder? What’s Maureen Dowd hearing - “fair or not” on this issue? Eff the biased hateful liberals.
hate crime bump
I’m glad that isn’t my kid and if it was, he would be riding the bus the next time with a .45 hidden under his shirt. Chicken shits. One of one they run like little mice eee eee ee eee. Let the get 4-5 against one and they are real bad asses. They will be damn lucky if that kids father or one of his relatives doesn’t catch them out one night and show them what a baseball bat can do.
Indeed, too bad that kid wasn’t carrying. One bang and they would have run like the chicken sh*t they are.
Yes, they do and they are getting out of control I’m really not liking their snotty as+ attitude. One came in and applied for a job last week. Sent him right back out the door. He has an attitude and I’m not even putting up with that crap. No damn way!
Political correctness is over! OVER! I will appease no one. We had the nicest black guy that worked for us. He was married to a white girl, a Jehova Witness white girl. He was a nice looking guy, strong, well spoken(none of the ebonic crap), a really nice guy. They came to company parties, we had them over for dinner, a very nice couple.
However, I can assure you racism is alive and well. First we got a call, ready for this? from the president of a local bank. He said don’t send him to the bank of to my home. The receptionist asked why. She thought maybe he had done something wrong. The bank president said tell the owner to call me. When I called, he said, “No offense but wrong color”. I could make an issue out of it and lose a good client or just send one of the other guys, which I did. It irked me no end, because we all really like him, but whatever. A motel manager did the same thing. I guess 2 out of the 6 years he worked for us isn’t that bad.
