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."
He said to get-in-their-faces. I guess they are.
Hate em back. Works for me. Never been attacked by a black, had more than a few of them try to sell those loud mouthed woof tickets....never worked. The thing with most of the thug/punkassed element is that they prey on what they perceive as easy targets. If they see you see you arnt scared and actually welcome their stupidity...they dont even try. As Ive gotten older I avoid areas where I know problems exist. Its easier, I hate dealing with morons.
Indeed! They keep pushing, I fear one day we will wake up to a full blown civil war.
“Did you read/hear about the OK woman that shot an intruder the other day? The audio of the 911 call was posted on here. Its really hair-raising...anyway she told the 911 operator that she didnt want to shoot him but she would kill him graveyard dead if he broke in...and she did.”
Thanks for posting that information, Outlaw Woman, I love stories like yours that have such a happy ending....does my heart good it does.
It'd never fly in this pc-mad country. There would be lawsuits and press conferences by Jackson, Sharpton, etc. flying all over the place.
Benelli M1 8 shell capacity, semi auto. 18.5 inch barrel.
It can handle a crowd, if necessary.
I simply didnt feel like listening to her remorse, although I can understand it...
she did well, may the Lord give her serenity...
beyond that, good shootin and good riddence...
Inevitably, somebody is going to draw the conclusion: might as well hang for a sheep as a lamb. If you're white, you're going to be accused of racism anyway, so why should it make any difference?
Nice tag line.
Am thinking about the Ruger LCP as my next conceal weapon.
I live in NYC. Shotgun permits are easier to get than pistol ones. I was thinking of a Mossberg .500 or Winchester Defender, but this is sweet.
I sick to bleeding-gums death of those kind of headlines. Like you I got jumped and worked over (BOW) by a bunch of ignorant punks. They were pretty outspoken advocates for racial harmony. A mild concussion was all I got, but it really played hell with my previously friendly attitude. I think two legged animals of every hue just use race as an excuse to pull that crap, and they really do make life miserable for normal human beings. Politicians, and 'community leaders' who egg them on should go to jail for it. I agree with you that the Obama presidency has emboldened a lot of black thugs, and racial tensions have been exacerbated greatly as a result. Personally I'm running out of optimism. Our country is perishing for lack of real leadership, and a functioning moral compass.
What is the conceal carry law in the city?
Happy ending for the OK woman as she walked away with her life. The intruder probably would have torn her apart had she been unable to defend herself. But she is/was obviously distressed over having to shoot him.
The truth is, most black people don't commit these sorts of heinous crimes. Blacks may be kicked-in-the-head, politically, as a general rule, but most are law-abiding citizens.
This sort of gangster thuggery has plagued the black community for a very long time, and in much greater depth than it has on the rest of the culture. You don't hear about the atrocities that occur in "the hood" too often, but there's a near epidemic of violence occurring there.
Your post, “It’d never fly in this pc-mad country. There would be lawsuits and press conferences by Jackson, Sharpton, etc. flying all over the place. “
If that would be the case, then I say bring it on. To do nothing as it seems the Denver PD is doing is just giving in to the thugs. Wimping out in the face of threats gets us nowhere, and never will. These (gang thugs) know only one thing and respect only one thing and that is FORCE. New York city had a huge gang violence problem until the PD there (backed by the mayor and DA) severely reduced the crime element using very much the same tactics....
It shoots the .380. Better than nothing but I prefer somthing with a bigger bite. Stay safe.
You’re right, Windflier. In Atlanta they are just as vicious to black folks. I lost a good friend from Kenya, a coworker, to some POS who shot him for less than 50 bucks.
She’s actually quite strong and level headed during the break in. She didn’t hesitate because it was necessary but it was obvious how distressed she was over having to do it.
You’re right......she did well......and I also hope the Lord grants her serenity.
And Amen...another piece of sh*t off the streets
Obama is a rabble rouser. This can only lead to nothing good.
I don’t care what color anybody is.
I’ll blast any MoFo who tries to eff with me...
That's the attitude I took when Obama was elected. No more pretending that skin color doesn't matter. No more soft-pedaling my opinions out of fear of being called a racist. Now I say exactly what I think on the subject of black-white relations in America.
And there are consequences. I have several friends who will no longer speak with me. It hurts. The pain is real. I'll eventually be banned from FR, I suspect. Someday I'll probably be a convicted "hate criminal" as well. But I'm done denying reality. Speaking the truth is never a sin, and it's time for the truth about race relations in America to be spoken.
I have a young son. We are raising him to be a Catholic first, a Texan second, and a person of European ancestry third. I would never dream of teaching him to hate anyone. Nor would his mother and I ever preach that white supremacy stuff to him. But I damned sure am going to tell him the truth about how whites and blacks get along in the real world before I send him out into that real world. He is going to learn the easy way what I had to learn the hard way: that outside of Christianity we can't all just get along.
And if that makes me a "racist", then I'm prepared to live with that.
I have a Mossberg 88,,,8,2 3/4,,,OO buck,,,20”bl.,,,
OO=9 balls each=72 rounds on target Chop,Chop,,,
Wow, that’s interesting. Had never heard of that. What a horrible deal.
M1 Super 90.
Newer version is the M4, made for the Marines & now available for civilian use.

NY City's gang problem got so bad that it temporarily suspended the political correctness among the citizens and the city government. That's why it got done. Everyone concerned was in agreement.
Los Angeles also broke the back of urban gangs back in the 50's and 60's. The city government was ruthless about it, and directed the LAPD to stomp it out with the correct amount of force.
The problem didn't rear its head again until the early 70's, when the Crips and the Bloods were born in Compton (a suburb of LA). By the time the city got around to trying to suppress it, gang membership had grown to gargantuan proportions, and couldn't have been put down without a war.
Times had changed, as well. Political correctness had already infected the city government, and the will to stamp out the gang scourge just wasn't there. Besides, it was confined to the ghettos and barrios, so it was allowed to fester and grow even larger.
In time, these gangs grew to infect communities across the country, and thousands of other urban gangs sprang up wherever the contagion of aberration reached. It's now an problem of epidemic proportions that spans the breadth of the nation.
What to do? Do what works, of course, but that will take a tremendous amount of political will.
Ping to #67—the Zebra murders.
What's even worse than that sort of murder is the senseless drive-by shootings. These used to be gang-on-gang, but in time, the gangsters began shooting innocent citizens as a way of initiating new members, and even for the sheer hell of it.
My sister lost her future brother in law to a drive-by shooting when she was in high school. He wasn't even involved with gangs. Just standing in the wrong place at the wrong time. A convenient target.
It's much easier to let a "chump" do all the work......then you can take it away from him ...with just one hit in a period of a few minutes...
The kind of real leadership this country needs is rising out of the turmoil as we speak. I've said it before, and I really believe it... we've got some real pain to come, but beyond that, sunrise is coming.
Sorry to hear about your incident. I can definitely relate.
I've used it for many years now. It's a truism that has never failed me.
I was very honored that Rush stole it from me once.
Miss ya, Charlie!
If I had the bully pulpit like Obama has, I'd sure as hell point out to as wide an audience as I could that 1)only a bunch of pansies would use the kind of chicken-shit tactics gangs use, and 2)their members must be really stupid to not realize that they are as responsible as any "oppressor" might be for causing grief and suffering for their own people!
Gangs are just a bunch of cowards who trample on the rights of anyone they choose--and then run and hide behind the apron strings of "CIVIL RIGHTS".
Black racist hate crimes have exploded since the Obama became President.....hhmmm.
Hell, my incident happened back during the Nixon administration. I guess it was just one of what Shakespeare called "the thousand pricks the flesh is heir to." Times were pretty tumultuous back then, and for a while after it seemed like things would improve. Now...well, I admire (and perhaps even envy) you for your faith in a better future. I'd like to see that sunrise. Take care.
***Another goal: to drive whites away from their downtown turf, including a hip-hop nightclub, ***
Didn’t blacks used to have their own section of town? I think it was called SEGREGATION and they didn’t like it! Sounds like they are wanting it now!
The utter contempt for life is what really is disgusting, and just as with terrorism, the only "measures" that will get any attention or "respect" from these bullies is what every coward fears--someone with something bigger and stronger than them!
Blackwater’s AA12 would be a nice weapon for crowd control.
This would be a case where a fire arm would have come in handy.
That's just it. LoDo is not a "black thug area." It is an upscale shopping and dining area. Or it's supposed to be.
Personally I consider the whole of Denver a liberal slug area.
I wonder if he was really like that. He could have been like something else. Because people are sometimes mistaken about what they're like.
Yes. But not because of skin color.
I would like to remind everyone of how many times we have seen dozens of police officers jump a single unarmed citizen, and proceed to beat and kick and stomp that person.
They may have different justifications, but it still is a return to pack behavior, and just as wrong.
Looks like the police better get there & start doing their job. Doesn’t sound like a upscale safe dining /shopping area to me from this article.
Here is a detailed article on the AA-12
Have you shot one? I’m in the market for a good shotgun. Preferably something I can use for 3-gun competitions as well.
If they were, it's sweet justice in the face of injustice.
It's really their fault because they practice race mongering against their own race and degrade it because of their own twisted sense of guilt.
Thanks. Was toiling with the purchase of another shotgun. This one clinches it. I can put the others away.
