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."
There have been a couple of articles about the attacks on the Denver website over the past months.
Anyone paying attention knew that something bad was brewing in downtown Denver.
“Personally, I think that some of the worst lowlife black hoodlums have been emboldened by Obama being elected. He’s a living affirmation of their belief that they’re owed something by the majority culture.”
Probably true. Me? I don’t care what color you are. If you come after me,and threaten my my life, you get a bullet. I already had one life threatening experience 34 years ago when I was junior in college. I was unarmed, and survived only by the grace of God. I have been armed ever since.
These packs of feral dogs just simply need to be “put down” like, well, a pack of feral dogs.
We live in central PA, truly the middle of nowhere, at least to my formerly Manhattanite thinking. Very rural, very white. But there is a downtown nearby and people are in white flight like somebody set off a chernobyl incident. Gangs, ethnic Asians and muslims and hispanics, are causing major havoc and the street drugs are gotten like shells on the beach. The old timers all have guns but they are still intimidated, and they see their property values declining fast, meanwhile the national economy is tanking...and their young are not sticking around to clean up.
Which is why I don't see revolution happening. I'm in a redstate region full of old folks who remember what America meant, and they're letting punks push them out like the Indians got pushed, only 1000x faster.
Not one in a hundred will stand his ground, unafraid of being labeled intolerant. Not one in a thousand will actually shoot when attacked by someone darker than himself. We've all been taught for a generation or more, that can only be an act of racism. And racism is worse than killing babies, medieval heresy, horse thieving, torture, and sodomy all put together.
If there were awards for dumb and dumber hate crime victims, this guy could receive an Oscar. Yo clown, the over the shoulder look can only help you see it coming from the rear. It won't prevent you from getting your lily white a$$ kicked again. Since while you're looking back over your shoulder more often, you will be hit from the front.
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.
You are not alone.
In the mid 80’s, I worked for three summers during college at a semi truck facility in East Louis with all black guys from the half way house. Many were career criminals, drug dealers,ex gang bangers out on parole and I was the first white guy they ever worked with.
Long story short, I taught many of them how to survive in a work environment along with helping them pass their GEDs(parole requirement) while they taught me, a skinny, white college kid how to survive on the streets. Basically, it was always be ready to fight, never look away and know where you are at all times along with some ‘street skills’(fighting).
Every black guy I worked with said that they feared other blacks much more than whites but getting their asses handed to them by a white guy was a HUGE way of ‘losing face’ in the hood.
I got a great life lesson on black culture and became friends with quite a few. Many appreciated a white guy helping them and they were eager to repay anyway they could.
Most left the truck facility, re entered society and were drawn right back into the criminal life. Sadly , most are also dead.
The feral will turn on each other when they can’t get to someone outside of their group.
Now, we just have to figure out a way of separating ourselves from them - removing their “natural prey” so to speak.
Well, I feel a lot better about this story now. What you said makes it all OK.
And those headlines will include the words "racist" and "hate crime", referring, of course, to the white man that defended himself.
“Not one in a thousand will actually shoot when attacked by someone darker than himself. “
You must be joking. The vast majority of people will shoot ANYONE if their life is threatened.
I’m not joking, FRiend. First of all, not many, even in this conservative region, pack heat to shop downtown. Second, those who do carry, will do just about anything to avoid shooting a “yoot.” The law, even in these parts, gives you a lot of grief when you do that.
Now, if the yoot breaks into their house, that’s different. Then it’s shoot, stuff and mount. Proudly.
But we’re talking about racial strife on this thread, and city street crap, not house pests.
Worst mistake this country ever made (other than electing Obama) was to bring slaves here.
“You basically just had to protect yourself and hope they didn’t kill you.”
Law of the Jungle.
They were here before this country was.
Only if those who are atacked refuse to stand and fight. If the perps have the ability, the opportunity and place one’s life or others in jeopardy,(One may use deadly force to stop the attack)
If this were reversed, the feds would be uriniating in their pants to lock up those hate mongering white racists.
Carry concealed, eliminate the threat and the POS sub-human garbage perps that engage in these domestic terrorist crimes.
in the words of Jeremiah Wright, “America’s chickens have come home to roost.” Not what he meant, but it sure is true. Why in the world would anyone go anywhere that could happen unarmed? It’s just stupid.
“and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.”
No way — Hate crimes are only committed when it is white on black crime. Also remember this, hate crimes exclude attacks on whites. That is why the “whitey” liberal Democrats who pushed this crap through Congress love it so much. It punishes whitey (which they so believe he should be righfully punished)for the treatment of the darkies 100 plus years ago.
White people keep voting in the Kennedy, Clinton, Schumer,
etc. politicians and this is what they get.
Please: let's not go there...doing so gives legitimacy to the phrase "hate crime", which is a creation of the political Left -- which, IMO, is blatantly unconstitutional. Why don't we just get rid of the idea of "hate crimes" altogether & severely increase the penalties of the actual crimes that were committed?
I concur with you in this matter, hope they all voted for Odumbo, as well. Probably the white-guilt syndrome crowd receiving some of the “been kept down for too long primates.”
I believe this domestic terrorist tactic is often referred to as “Polar Bear Hunting” in the BET community.
One day those POS are going to cross a person, who will rain heavily on their racist domestic terrorist parade.
