Black Gangs Vented Hatred For Whites In Downtown Attacks

Black Gangs Vented Hatred For Whites In Downtown Attacks

'I Hate You F---ing White People,' Woman Shouts At Victim

Black gangs roaming downtown Denver often vented their hatred for white victims before assaulting and robbing them during a four-month crime wave, according to interviews and court records obtained by 7NEWS.

"I hate you f---ing white people," said a black woman in a large group of black men, according to the victim who was beaten up as he and three buddies left a LoDo bar after midnight on Aug. 30.

"F---- you, white boys," the woman added, according to the 25-year-old Westminster victim, who spoke to 7NEWS Friday.

"Why do you hate white people?" the man recalled asking. "That's when I got hit. They beat the crap out of me," he added, saying that 15 to 20 men beat him to the ground.

"They just swarmed you," said the man who curled up on the ground to shield his face. "You basically just had to protect yourself and hope they didn't kill you."

The victim, who suffered bruised ribs and a cut head, said he was protected by a padded motorcycle jacket. He asked that his name be withheld for his safety.

A couple dozen arrest warrant affidavits unsealed Friday offer chilling insights into the 26 racially-motivated "blitz attacks," which stretched from July 17 to Nov. 17.

One unidentified suspect told police "that the members of his gang earn status in the gang by beating up 'white dudes,'" according to court records. He added that the gangs targeted "drunk white guys," exiting bars and nightclubs in the entertainment district.

The suspects allegedly bragged about knocking out white victims with one punch to the head. Victims lying on the ground were "stomped" and even tossed through glass windows.

In the more than two dozen attacks, victims' injuries included a skull fracture as well as broken noses and eye sockets when they were blindsided by punches that often knocked them unconscious. One man was so savagely attacked that he was hospitalized in a coma for a while, police said.

Several of the 35 young male and female suspects arrested by police recently said the gangs often targeted lone white and Hispanic men because they didn't "fight back" and they had money, iPods and other valuable gadgets that attackers coveted.

Another goal: to drive whites away from their downtown turf, including a hip-hop nightclub, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

The gangs "own that area," one suspect told police.

7NEWS exposed the crime spree in early September when a law enforcement source said the police department was keeping the public in the dark about a series of downtown attacks. The source added that a special FBI task force had been called in to help identify the assailants.

When 7NEWS made a public records request Sept. 3 for crime reports in the area, a police spokesman confirmed the department was investigating a "pattern of assaults and robberies in central Denver" that began in July.

Police spokesman Sonny Jackson denied that police delayed warning the public for seven weeks to avoid frightening visitors to the popular and lucrative downtown entertainment district.

He said police had to confirm "a pattern of behavior" before going public.

But police reports say the gang attack pattern was identified during the summer as the department deployed uncover teams and used surveillance cameras to identify the assailants.

"During the summer months of 2009, a pattern of criminal conduct was identified which included multiple suspects identifying a solo Caucasian or Hispanic male and completing a blitz attack against this party," an officer wrote in an arrest affidavit for a Sept. 4 robbery on the 16th Street Mall.

"Part of the MO involved the group of suspects, usually African American males, sending a party, possibly an African American female, to identify the victim," the officer wrote. "This is done by (the woman) talking with or standing with the victim. A suspect, generally male, from the group will step forward and hit the victim hard, knocking him down. Other members of the group will then emerge and begin participating in beating the victim."

The Westminster beating victim said if police had warned the public earlier, he and others could have better protected themselves

"I'm kind of upset that (police) didn't make it public," said the Westminster beating victim. "I would have been more vigilant. It would have made people a lot more on guard."

But, he added that, "I'm very pleased that they responded the way they did." Within minutes of his 911 cell phone call, uncover officers flooded the scene. He recalled listening to police radios crackling with reports of two suspects being arrested that night.

"I was like, 'Wow, finally they did something,'" the man recalled.

Prosecutors have charged two men and a woman in his attack.

As police pursued the massive investigation involving 35 suspects and dozens of victims, investigators asked the young blacks why they targeted whites.

"Because they got a lot of money," suspect Allen Ford, 18, allegedly told police. Other suspects echoed that simple rationale.

Ford, who was the last suspect arrested in a major police sweep in the past two weeks, allegedly told investigators earlier that he was upset how the robbery spoils were divvied up among members of the Rolling 60s Crips gang and the Black Gangster Disciples gang, according to the arrest affidavits.

Ford, who was arrested Thursday, allegedly griped about "other people getting bigger stuff than me that I would really like to have in my life," according to the records.

At times, older men would chastise young gang members, saying, "Y'all make it seem like a big deal for y'all to be knocking out white people," suspect Denita Mayfield told police. "They all brag about beating up white people."

But the attackers used more than their fists. "The series of crimes has also involved the use of a gun and knife," a police report said.

One male victim recalled a black woman approaching him on the street and saying something he couldn't hear.

"As he was attempting to clarify what had been said to him, a black male came up and stated, 'What the f--- did you say to my girl?'" a detective wrote in an arrest affidavit.

Instantly, the victim was punched.

As he was pounded with blows, the victim said he heard a woman voice shouting, "Get that white boy!" according to an arrest affidavit.

Kendall Austin, 18, allegedly told police that the street gangs "own that area," referring to the 1400 block of 19th Street.

He said they were especially possessive of the Bash nightclub at 19th and Blake streets, saying their purpose was to "keep white people from going to 'The Bash' and to 'let people know not to come downtown without their friends for protection.'"

During an Aug. 2 attack, suspect Allen Ford told police his alleged accomplice, Xavier Francis, tossed a white man through a glass window behind the Bash nightclub.

"I seen him pick the little white boy up and throw him through the glass," Ford told police, according to court records. Police obtained security camera video showing the victim fly through the window.

The Westminster man said after he was attacked, he avoided downtown for a while.

Now he's returned to his favorite LoDo tavern, but he added: "I'm a lot, lot more cautious. It makes me look over my shoulder a lot more."

Sorry, this doesn’t meet the definition of a hate crime. The victims were white. It would be problematic if they were gay & white, unless the perps shouted that they hated fags.

This is an excellent opportunity for the local Federal prosecutor to go after these gangs on the basis of the hate crimes bill enacted in late October.

Without the will to use the Stopper, the weapon itself is useless. And white people don’t have the will. The average white person won’t admit out loud that white people as such even exist. “I don’t look at skin color,” he or she will say, even as the all-black gang is throwing them through the plate-glass window. The terror of being called a racist trumps everything, even here on FR.

Besides, the first whitey that fights back will be accused of racism. Cue the riots.

"I'm kind of upset that (police) didn't make it public," said the Westminster beating victim. "I would have been more vigilant. It would have made people a lot more on guard."

That would have required a description of the individuals and their racist behavior. The PC Police in Denver see no reason to warn White people of black racists for fear of being labeled 'racist' themselves or scorned for 'casting stereotypes', etc.

The same thing happened here, in my hometown, only White people actually got MURDERED by Black suspects:

Natural instinct....however, living in the Denver suburbs, the only reason I go downtown is for pro-sports or restaurants.
Neither are conducive to 2A/CCW rights....
So, now I have to depend on my basic self defense skills.

I’m happy to take my chances, but at some point numbers prevail.

Just an observance I’ve made when this type of race-based (black on white) crime occurs...

Has anyone noticed that when a white person is beaten by a black person, there are usually quite a few of the latter participating in the crime.

What is the reason here?

Are these black hoodlums so afraid of one or two white guys that they have to gang up?

This sounds so incredibly gutless to me.

Looks like so far they've been targeting liberal white people. I wonder if they know the difference?

I also notice they like to attack as a pack picking on an individual as a victim. Does the regular terrorist hunting license apply to these subhuman animals?

Against a PC government, you would be stupid to fight back in the open. That is why some people in the world strike back using terrorism as a weapon against their tormentors. I don’t advocate it, but human beings are human beings. Imagine a parent losing their son to a beating and the government hesitates to prosecute to the maximum. Dead kid, anguish parent, PC government, black kids laughing over a slap in the wrist. Government officials unwilling to deal with it one day will wake up to a police report of a bomb going off at a crowded supermarket or store commonly used by blacks in a neighborhood where the thugs came from. After that, it ain’t going to be pretty.

They hate you because your a white man! I mean how obvious do these savage pack of animals have to be? On an aside note: Blacks have been perpetrating this kind of planned savagery against whites since the 1960s. I've seen it.

My favorite carry weapon is a Para Ordnance P12 1911 A1. Second choice is a Smith & Wesson model 19. They haven't made the latter since the seventies if I'm not mistaken but it is still a good weapon.

Bombing marketplaces really isn't an American style. I would think something more along the lines of a "Death Wish" kind of vigilantism. Basically, we'll just start finding dead gang bangers lying around with a few bullet holes in them.
