Mass arrests made in downtown Denver beatings, robberies
Denver Post ^ | 20 November 2009 | Jordan Steffen

Posted on 11/21/2009 3:38:11 PM PST by Bob017

The Denver Police Department announced today that they have made 32 arrests during a sweep to end a four-month spree of what police said were racially motivated assaults and robberies in downtown Denver, including the LoDo entertainment district.

A task force comprised of the Denver Police, FBI and the Denver District Attorney's Office investigated 26 incidents in which groups of black males verbally harassed and then assaulted white or Hispanic males, according to Denver Police Chief Gerry Whitman.

Many of the victims were robbed after being assaulted.

Three suspects, Allan Ford, Torrance McCall and one juvenile are still at large. Suspects are being held on $1 million bonds for each count.

Is there more of this kind of thing, or is this some sort of Obama entitlement phenomenon?

It’ll be curious to see whether or not they’re charged with a “hate crime”.

Gee, I wonder why I did not see any of this reported in State-run media. If this were a bunch of white guys hitting up on blacks, it would be the lead story on every network news for at least several nights. Hmmmm, just wondering why this was not on the news — cannot understand why.

Dang!

Looks like a rampant case of Willie Hortonism to me. You know, publishing their photos and all that.

And the paper even said the crimes were racially motivated. Gotta be a racist paper too. All good “liberals” know that only whites can engage in racist violence.

(Sarcasm off)

The hate and the anger that is stirred up by community organizers is amazing. We are seeing it now, with our local Indian tribe. They opened a branch of the SEIU for Indians and we have a local right here for the county tribes.

We don’t have ACORN in this area, so the SEIU does the same job.

“Is there more of this kind of thing, or is this some sort of Obama entitlement phenomenon?”

If it’s a violent crime involving a black and a white, the safe bet is on a black perp, about 90% of the time.

Yeah, I’d say there is “more of this kind of thing”.

It’s not racism, but a practical matter of self-preservation, to avoid groups of young blacks.

I grew up in a black neighborhood and I’ve seen it over, and over, and over.

Don’t care if you think I’m racist. You’re free to call me that. Just don’t call me, or my loved ones, laid-up in the hospital, or dead.

If you want to be that “nice-guy”, guilt-ridden white person, that ventures near this type of scenario out of sense of duty to ‘fight racism’, then, by all means, make sure you have health insurance and all your affairs are in order. It’s just a matter of time.

They can’t be charged with a “hate” crime. They are Black.

The “hate crime” laws were enacted to get Whitey.

Everyone knows that “Hate crimes” are only committed by white people against anyone whom the democrats deem are in need of protection from the “Evil Christofacist Fundies”, ie. minorities, queers/pedophiles, dykes, enviorwackos and such.

Well, I grew up outside of NYC, and there were places I knew not to go when I was a kid.

And there were occasional black muggers who came south from Harlem and did their bit.

But black gangs beating up whites in the good parts of town, or black thugs gang raping and murdering whites in the South, seem to be on the rise.

It’s hard to tell, because it’s just an impression, not a statistical analysis, since no one is about to give us statistics.

You’re not a racist, you’re a realist.

Fortumately, we don’t have this kind of problem in my state.....it’s 98% white. (The State of Maine).

We do have a couple of dingbats for U.S. Senators, though.

Where are the “hate crime” charges?????? Maybe they were beating and robbing people because they loved them. Where is the ACLU? Where’s our courageous Atty General?

So are the confiscation of guns, Politicians can’t control illegal guns so they confiscate legal guns

We lived there in 1953. My dad made sure we had our car doors locked when driving downtown but he still had a pistol stolen from his glove box one night.

I know what you mean. I think the problem with cities the size of Indianapolis is that they are not big enough to keep the thugs isolated to certain parts. It only takes a few minutes to go from one side of town to the other, thereby, spreading the thuggery to every corner

Blacks learn race blame, hate and pride doctrines from the time they enter the first grade. Diversity is the racializing of people - whitey excluded as whitey is targeted.
