This is a hate crime...

As opposed to a "love crime"? Let's not perpetuate this liberal language reconstruction crap. It's a crime, plain & simple. Unlike the IDIOTS that Hah-vud is pumping into our government cesspool today, I don't care whether they did or did not "hate" him. Just put these animals in a cage.

. . . a police spokesman said the beating could be racially motivated.
The 17-year-old victim was white and the teen assailants were black.

Gee, ya think? I guess they have to go the "allege" route in public, but it is time for the authorities to come down HARD on this crap. If they don't they'll be complaining about "vigilantes".

I don’t believe in hate-crimes label. 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 wouldn’t then how can you charge them for what they were thinking? Charge them for assault and battery, expel them, and turn them loose to enter the great big game of catch and release they practice as justice nowadays.

A racially integrated community is a chronological term timed from the entrance of the first black family to the exit of the last white family.

If the victim ‘dissed’ Obama on the bus, he could be the one charge with the hate crime and we would need to understand real and perceived injustices that led these peaceful children into acting out in a socially inappropriate way.

I wish I could say I am being sarcastic.

By the way, dissed is not a word. It pains me to type it.

We have an obligation to protect our children from physical attack. Are the courts and law enforcement going to protect them, or do we have to do it ourselves?

I have seen animals like this before, all it takes is for them to think someone disrespects them by not doing what they want to trigger violence.

It doesn’t matter if they are black or white most times, remember blacks have more to fear by their own than they do by whites statistically. My point is unless you can somehow prove they did it because he was white, like them telling him they are going to do it because he was white, then how can you prove this?

The fruit of turning schools in the glorified juvenile halls. The content is dumbed down for the sake of the lowest common denominator, schools are sued for banning problem students (often on the basis of arguments akin to “disparate impact”), and the schools adopt brain-dead “zero tolerance” policies (equal infliction of the iron fist upon the guilty and innocent alike, instead of bringing the hurt down only upon the guilty) to compensate.

Yes, we are homeschooling - at least until we find ourselves within close proximity to an affordable private school with a strong science and mathematics curriculum.

I would not have my children in a school where they were so outnumbered by a hostile and violent culture. Even if they were not beat up regularly (like this), they would be constantly in fear of it happening.

My sister was re-zoned to a bad elementary school (many years go), my parents moved us before school started. We did not have the money for something like that, but my parents ALWAYS found a way.

Yes, because they would have accused him of "acting white" and being a "sellout".

I think that may be true. I certainly hope it is true. I think this country has changed very much in the past year and I can tell you that although I wouldn't say I've had an awakening (I've been awake for awhile), I would say that I see things with new eyes now. I call a spade a spade a lot more often.

***The 17-year-old victim was white and the teen assailants were black.***

Sad. A kid made a made a racist for life. I have known several white people who were never raised to be racist. After some altercation with blacks, brought on by the blacks, they became the worst racists I have ever seen!

I remember something way back in the 1960's in the military. Several of my friends were gathered around talking about racism.
One Yankee man said he was not a racist and had no quarrel with blacks.
Another Southern boy said (and I will never forget this) “You have two more years of military service and you will be a racist when you get discharged, because THEY, (the blacks) will teach you to hate them!”

Two years later those non racist Yankee whites were the most racist people I have ever seen, even putting to shame those southern boys. I never found out details what happened but something changed them.

But then, it also works in reverse.

When I was a kid our family just happened to be driving down the wrong road. Black thugs threw glass coke bottles and rocks through the windshields and windows of cars with white drivers. There were several families at the police station while we were there, I remember some had glass in their eyes and cuts. When the cops told my dad that they couldn’t do anything, my dad said he would go take care of the thugs himself. He was then told that they would have to put him in jail if he did anything.
And sadly nothing will happen to these new thugs.

Actually, he would just be another defenseless victim. I found that kids focused on the consequences more than the demographics.

We had a kid in high school who was an Italian guy from New Jersey. Everyone thought his father was in the Mafia because the Godfather had just come out. The bullies left him alone. Why didn’t they go after him? One word: The Fear of Consequences. OK, four words.

These bullies on the bus are not afraid of the consequences. If the nerdy smart black kid has a brother who is a leader in the Crips or Bloods, the bullies will leave him alone. They are afraid of those consequences.

I would say it is called sarcasm. Every time a black is a victim and the assailant is not black, it is termed a hate crime. I have said it before, time to use their tactics. Claim racism, hate crime, sexism etc. any and every time you can. I do not believe that crimes should be labeled hate or racist, an assault is an assault, the color or sex of the victim should mean nothing but the left is using it to further their agenda. By using their same tactics we rob them of the exclusive use of them. When a person who does not look like you claims they are a victim of you because of their color, sex, race religion, etc. you are immediately put on the defensive, even though in most cases you should not have to be.

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.

That's raaacciiiiist, you can't say that.....

< /sarcasm >

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.

It's a hate crime. And the kids who cheered were just and criminal as the kids who did the beating.

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 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!
