Four members of a teenage gang have been charged under a state's lynching law after allegedly beating an 18-year-old student so badly he required facial reconstruction surgery.

As I recall, Republicans pushed hard for a federal anti-lynching law back in the 1930s, but Democrats blocked it from passage.
I saw the video on tv here in South Carolina right before they turned themselves in. It clearly showed their features as they walked down the sidewalk before the attack, so it’s no surprise that they decided to turn themselves in. They would have been easy to catch.
The report at the time said that the attack itself was captured on video too (of the parking lot where it occurred), but that part wasn’t going to be released to the public. I assume it wasn’t released because it was considered too inflammatory (a gang of blacks attacking a single white). Yet I don’t recall there having been any similar restraint in showing the beating of the black man Rodney King by white policemen — the part that made them look the worst, that is (and omitting the part in which he got up and lunged at the police. I didn’t see that part until the night of the riots themselves, when it must have occurred to somebody that maybe they’d better stop omitting it, and try to calm things down.)
Though there are some drawbacks to having cameras in so many public places, I do like them when they help capture thugs like these.
Let me add that I support treating people as individuals, whatever their race. Treat the thugs as thugs, and the decent people as decent people — individually. As a teenager in the segregated South, I reached the conclusion that the racial discrimination against blacks that 80% or 90% of my fellow white Southerners were supporting back then was wrong.
That was a long time ago, but I still have essentially the same beliefs about the rights of the individual. Nowadays, though, I think the double standard is more often being applied to the detriment of whites. It’s still wrong, no matter what the color of the victim.
Please cut it out with the “Amish” thing. The perps are black. As usual.
Don’t be afraid to identify them correctly ... even if the MSM are complete ball-less wonders.

People on the left call us racists, but we don’t have problems with peoples races anymore the problem we all have is with cultures, especially cultures that are corrupt and value the “thug life’ over earning a honest living, cultures that don’t value protecting the weak and being honorable.
When i get someone calling me a racist for calling out crime in the inner city I say this: “I want this country to be a multi-racial country, but I also want it to be uni-cultural, that culture being the American culture, one that respect other people and acts with honor and dignity, culture is in part behavior, people cannot change their DNA, but they can change their behavior”
Usually this silences them rather effectively.
“It is going to take vigilante patrols to put a stop to this.”
Last month, the South Carolina Supreme Court “liberalized” the state’s castle doctrine and gave more legal protection to citizens who kill thugs, even if the thugs are unarmed.
There’s a 19th century law in SC that allows citizens to “stop” thugs who commit a felony after dark. I won’t go into details because I’m still researching this law and don’t want to give people bad info. The legislature, I’m told, is tidying up this law to help citizens protect themselves and their property.
From the legislature and the court, the message to both citizens and violent lawbreakers is very clear...
The Liberal media will not cover this, either.
If this were reversed, fuc$;/ng Brian Williams and Jesse Jackson would be in Columbia doing interviews.
Then Eric Holder is really the one you differ from.
Holder: Focus On Black Panther Case Demeans "My People" (Live Leak)
... to describe it [voter intimidation by The New Black Panther Party] in those terms [Bartle Bull said it was the most serious act of voter intimidation that he had witnessed in his career] I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line, who risked all [a couple decades before Bull's career began], for my people.
Somebody left the irony on.
You won’t see it on the evening news.
If a bunch of white youths similarly beat a black youth, it would get wall-to-wall national TV coverage.
The problem is, the media narrative is not going to be “Carter Strange should have been Constitutionally carrying, and he might’ve had a chance,” or “those thugs with a prior record should not have been breathing the free man’s air.” The media narrative will be “CCTV works, see?” And soon downtowns and bar districts all over the country will start looking like the UK, where *everything* is covered by CCTV cameras. Hundreds of thousands of them, constantly watched by the police, all over shopping districts and city centers and pub areas. Everywhere.
Yes, the cameras made it possible to catch the perpetrators, but they didn’t prevent the victim from being attacked in the first place.
Never forget that when someone calls you a racist for pointing out the truth,
they are doing so IN LIEU OF
offering a valid counter argument. Point this intellectual and moral bankruptcy out to them and ask if they’d actually like to discuss the topic at hand, or have they admitted, by calling you a racist, that they HAVE no argument.
The MSM may be “ball-less”,
but there’s something else at play here.
This civil unrest and black thuggery further the cause of communism, and that’s the only moral good worth pursuing as far as they are concerned.
You both make very good points. Thank you.
