The vid is at the link (fair warning, it's pretty brutal stuff). I'm amazed the kid wasn't left with more serious injuries.

“...ways to end the violence.”

Unleashed CCW restrictions and the punks will have to consider that armed intervention is a risk.

Except the Chicago machine doesn’t want the competition.

I read about the beating yesterday.

I was struck by this passage from the story:

The video shows five males kicking and punching the victim while taunting him with racial slurs.

Police said Tuesday in a statement the incident does not appear racially motivated.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

Are American parents raising kids or animals these days?

I’ll bet these seven kids are amazed by the reaction. It’s probably the first time in their lives when someone actually said “NO” to them and meant it.

Not to worry, they’ll get off with a lecture lasting thirty seconds and six minutes of probation.

You can't make sense of this? If COURSE it COULDN'T be "racially motivated" if the perps were black and the victim was white. Just by definition.

I don't think they're 'raising' period. The 60's started a whole new breed. Me, me, me. IMO

They will get typical Chicago “ justice”: should they ever even make it to court, the charges will be reduced to Disorderly Conduct and they will get a Bench Trial (or whatever a trial without a jury is called) and the judge will give them 30 days “supervision”, where they will see a social worker once to register, and then never again.

I would argue they're not raising them at all. They send them off to public schools and get thoughtless gang bangin', thrill seeking youtubers back home to live in the basement.

Actually, a quick bit of Googling seems to indicate that four of them are being charged with first-degree murder.

I looked up the names given in the article, Raymond Palomino and Derrion Albert. Apparently this is referring to a case that’s actually several years old, so why this was suddenly front page news on Yahoo, I don’t know.

That was a previous incident. In the present incident the injuries were minor.

Be careful. This kid didn’t die. You’re probably seeing reports from a similar beating that did result in the victim dying.

Really? Now I’m really confused.
Authorities only say “it’s not racially motivated” when the situation is reversed.

Reread the article. There are two incidents. One current, one previous.

According to WLSAM news, he was bruised and sore, but okay. You're thinking of a beating that took place in 2009.

they are white kids and they beat an asian kid. The beating was in retaliation for a beating the asian kid orchestrated against one of them. The 15 year old girl lured him to the alley.

According to WLSAM news this morning, the victim was "Asian" and the attackers where white.

There is a visceral physical appeal to beating someone that shooting them in the back will never equal.

I remember reading an article about an “untouchable” in India who started a leather goods store. Working with leather is ‘touching the dead flesh of an animal’ and apparently a job for an “untouchable”. But he was too successful and got a satellite dish and a well that his upper caste neighbors didn't have. So they got together and beat up him and his family, burned down his house and contaminated his well.

In America that wouldn't happen because of the quite real possibility of him being ARMED.

You might counter that then the situation would be an armed standoff with ever graver consequences - but I think that situation is highly unlikely.

Beating some ‘uppity’ neighbor and burning down his stuff has an appeal to the baser instincts of humanity that even the possibility of a bullet ventilating your internal organs puts a major damper on.

Being part of a violent mob = fun.

Having bullets fly past you = not fun.

What in the hell are you talking about?

My point is that punks would think twice about beating innocents if they knew there was a risk of a CCW holder being nearby.

Because, dear inattentive reader, there was a case in the past couple of days in which a bunch of white kids beat up an Asian kid in Chicago, according to the news. The story said that this video went viral like a previous story back in 2009 when a black kid was beaten to death by a bunch of other black kids in Chicago.

You’re right. They’d never pick up a gun and just shoot whoever they were pissed at assuming that the person might be armed.

A firearm is a tool to be used under a narrow variety of circumstances. A firearm is not magical and will not solve all or even any of society’s ills.

Adding guns justs escalates. Morality, forced morality through 100% enforcement of laws, no more rehabilitation crap, or parole or pardons (Haley Barbour, what the hell were you thinking).

That is as idiotic as saying that nuclear arms just escalated the chance of war between the Soviet Union and the USA.

The idea that you may be in for a lot more than you bargained for if you start violence is known as “deterrence”, and it works.

Escalating the “cycle of violence” is the language of postmodernist squishy idealists who also tend to simultaneously entertain the historic delusion that “violence never solves anything”.

For those who didn’t read the article, the offenders were mixed Asian and white. The victim was Asian.

The video you posted is censored by the MSM.

This is the most confusing thread I’ve ever seen, the blind leading the blind.

Don’t these people know how to research anything before spouting off?

Derrion Albert was a black honors student beaten to death by other blacks in 2009 that was recorded. The story was posted here numerous times.

This latest is white kids beating an Asian student, calling him the “N” word (OMG!).

Uncensored, not for the easily frightened:

1. None of these punks were armed.
2. If they had to worry about a bystander being armed they may not have initiated the beating.
3. Where do you get this nonsense about punks picking up a gun and shooting someone, armed or otherwise?
4. I certainly don’t need instructions from YOU on when and how to employ a weapon.
5. If the citizens of IL were allowed to carry concealed, CRIME WOULD GO DOWN!
6. It works every time its tried!

I stand corrected.

“Even though the boy’s assailants used racial epithets, in a brief statement Tuesday, police said the attack did not appear to be racially motivated.”

RAYMOND PALOMINO - white guy with no mask

WESLEY WU - grey hoodie, main kid attacking the man, deleted facebook. <-—yelling the slurs.

EASLEY WU - big puffy jackey with fur hood, blue striped adidas pants

AMY HOLLY FENG — Holding Camera

TODD RAMOS - grey and black hoodie

JOHNNY J LI - blue hoodie and blue snap back on.

DANNY HUI - dressed in all black

I guess the REAL story is everybody and his brother expects the perps to be black and the victim of a different race....sad story about perception about race, and sadly, most of the perception is true....

but alas, there is hope....these perps weren't black....everyone's getting into the act....

The real story here is almost 30 years of forced indoctrination, through entertainment and government schools, for children to adopt the manners, thought processes, speech and attitude of the black urban thug culture.

Mainstreaming a violent, destructive, racist subculture until it becomes the dominant culture, ruling through PC intimidation, violence and fear.

No humility or compassion. A complete lack of conscience.

In that respect there are no racial boundaries anymore.
