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.

Hey guys I have been frequenting this page for years, however I never have registered until this morning.
After seeing this savage beat the snot out of a kid minding his own buisness it pissed me off. I have a 16 year old son and 14 year old daughter. We live in the burbs and my children attend a predominately white public school.
My son had a few new kids of color call him out at school at the start of school this year. My son agreed to meet with the mouthy thug after football practice. Well to sum it up my boy is a state champion wrestler and made this punk cry before it was over. His friends sat on the sideline and watched in awe as my boy proceeded to give this punk a lesson i believe he will never forget.
He came home after schooling this punk in the art of submissions and told his mother and myself. I simply told him good job son and gave him a high five.
Not all white kids are defenseless and will indeed fight back. The problem is the antagoniser usually has to fight in packs 5 on 1. According to my son these punks after the incident have went out of their way to kiss his butt. I simply told him do not trust anyone, never let your guard down.
When choosing a school for their children, my cousins would show up at a prospective school at 3 o’clock and watch the kids walk out. That told them everything they needed to know.
A principal in a heavily minority school district in Miami once told a friend of mine, in a round about way, not to send her daughter to the school. Said the girl was too attractive. My friend got the picture.
And past. I graduated from high school in 1970. Such black-on-white attacks were common in my school.
I am guessing the perpatrators (sp) come from East St. Louis. Enough said.

It's almost as if a certain group of our citizens, feeling newly empowered with the election of the current president, are behaving about as badly as did the Carpetbaggers, Scalawags and some freedmen during the darkest years of Radical Reconstruction after the end of THE War.
Might well engender the same reaction. Just might.
If white boys had beaten a black boy this would have been on the front page of the New York Times with all their "hate specialist" screaming racism. As is, they'll ignore it.
“This is a hate crime....and they cheer”
It’s only a hate crime when the victim is a minority. White males deserve beatings. /s off
This is the thing. When blacks teach their kids that white people hate them they are teaching them to hate whites. Pathetic! Why don’t these blacks who feel this way realize white people don’t hate them and quit teaching their kids to hate us???
It has to stop or it will get worse and not stop!
Wow... that link was AMAZING! Long read, but well worth it. The comments were interesting, also.
WHAT THE h*** IS THE POLICE DOING ABOUT THIS?
Where is the bus driver? Has he been fired?
Ein viertes Reich, Obama? Das geht nicht or, perhaps, Wir erlauben keinen vierten Reich.
The problem isn't Brown, the problem is the erosion of discipline and consequences for misbehavior.
The student attackers in the video should be tried as adults and jugged at hard labor for 10 years or so.
This is what your tax dollars have done the last 50 years. Racism in this country will go on forever, or until the blacks burn down all the cities.
Remember, it can’t be racism if the victim is white. It is just a case of oppressed young black men, resisting the opression of the white man. The white kid was probably one of the white environmentalists who was poisning people of color.
The sad reality is that the black racists beating this kid, probably just created another racist.
Racism COULD be brought to an end, if the racers weren’t making such a good living off of it (see Booker T Washington’s quote).
Also, if everyone were held to the same standard, or at the very least, bad behavior and choices weren’t subsidized,
everyone would start living by the same standard, and we could forget the whole skin color thing.
Seriously, I don’t see a man’s “color”, be he blue-black or simply brown, or an albino, if we share values.
There is no such thing as a hate crime. Stop using Orwellian language. It is the lingo of the enemy.
***They beat him for no reason other than looking for a seat, if it was a nerd black kid would they have not beat him for the same thing also?
Unless you can prove they wouldnt then how can you charge them for what they were thinking?***
Does it matter to you what they were thinking? They beat someone up. They deserve to be charged.
Give these scalawags to Sheriff Joe until morale improves.
That's convenient. I wonder if the same observation will be made when White people get sick and tired of watching their children beaten by gangs of black thugs protected by "hate crimes" legislation and fight back?
Hon. James David Manning, PhD gives a valid warning folks better start listening to. Things like what happened to this young man on the bus are exactly what will bring what Dr. Manning is speaking about to pass.
