PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A Vietnam veteran who lost his eye while serving his country was violently beaten during a random attack by a group of teens on a Philadelphia street earlier this week.

The attack happened shortly after 6 p.m. Tuesday in the 5000 block of N. 5th Street in the city’s Olney section.

“These animals are specializing on our elderly people out here and a gentleman who served our country,” Lt. George McClay said.

According to investigators, 64-year-old Edward Schaefer was walking to meet his wife at the bus stop when he was approached from behind by six males.

RANDOMLY? RANDOMLY!?

Can anyone honestly say that if 6 white thugs had so visciously attacked a 64-year old black vet we would have seen a headline including:

"Randomly Attacked"

And not

"Racial Attack"

During the 1960"s black gangs were responsible for a lot of brutal attacks on people. My husband and I were victims of an attack. Not really sure what changed to make black neighborhoods safer or whether we just were clever enough to avoid those neighborhoods.

Today, when I'm in the city, I make sure that I never leave my vehicle without checking around me for gangs of youth of any color.

It's important today to be proactive as well as reactive.

We haven’t seen anything, yet. This country is going to become so ugly. Bet their lawyer gets them off with the “the victim was racist and asked for it” defense. If they do go to jail, I hope they become someones wife very quickly.

Oh hell, don’t exert yourself.

There’s nothing wrong with those punks a half an ounce of led wouldn’t fix.

I don’t advocate that either of course, but frankly that’s what they deserve in spades.

This report makes my blood boil.

I don’t care what the color of the perps or the victim was, those perps deserve the full treatment.

Frankly, I’m tired of this crap. How much are citizens supposed to take? If the government doesn’t defend it’s citizens, replace the people in power with those who will.

Eerily similar to what happened to one of my father’s best friends some years ago. Harry was in his sixties, minding his own business while waiting at a bus stop in SF. Four black males set upon him in a “random” attack, after beating him they splashed gasoline on him and set him afire. He spent many months in rehabilitation and skin grafts, and lost the use of his left arm. Random means he was white, his attackers black. BTW, my dad left Philly because of bad conditions there.

whites need to stay completely away from wherever black yutes tend to be.....its sad, and a sorry state of affairs but whites must wise up...they are risking their very lives with their liberal white attitude of being meek and mild.

It’s almost like those old, evil, southern segregationists had some valid points. These types of attacks occur constantly. We had three black-on-white several-on-one beatings on the Portland transport system LAST WEEK !

I wonder how difficult it would be for one individual to tase then tranq one of the “offenders” in order to take a sharp knife and emasculate him.

Of all these attacks I’ve yet to hear of a victom producing a concealed handgun and plugging these thugs. It seems statistically improbable. If it ever does happen, I’m sure we’ll never the end of it from the leftist media as they paint the victom who shot in self defense as the “true thug”. Sickening.

The law means nothing anymore, at least for the new privileged class.

Wonder what that kind of creature will do if we have really hard times.

There is no longer any sense of reality in many of the cities.

TV breeds this nonsense.

They think they are “road warriors”.

None of them have seen what war is about. They have no respect for anyone or anything.

Enough said. Some thing are better left unsaid, but understood.

Does not play out that way in TX.

Too many citizens are armed. Many concealed carry.

This is not the place to attempt this type of crime. TX executes murderers. (admitted it takes a while)

I went to Temple Un. in the early/mid 60’s. The black thugs just used to rob and beat you. Now they have joined forces with the Hispanic “yuts” to promote the slogan, “The City of Brotherly Love”, aka “The City of Bloody Love”.

Blame it all on Eric Holder, AG and his asslicker Perez, AAS, Civil Rights Division, for not prosecuting the two Black Panther thugs at the election polling place.

They opened the do for a street war on whitey which has been claiming more victims everyday (Just save crime accounts of black on white attacks that show up on FR, and after a couple months, the pattern becomes very clear).

We have the most anti-American, racist President and AG (and other Obama appointees, EPA, NASA, etc) in the history of the country. They make George Wallace seem like an amateur.

Unless Obama and his marxist/racist minions are ousted in November, we can count on more of this anti-white violence and more bodies in the street, like Mexico.

This is also an opportunity for those of us who support a sound, pragmatic Concealed Carry law, and reciprocal CC recognition across state lines law, to hit our state and local politicans to support our right to self defense.

Ask them if they want their wife or son to have to face these thugs without a means of defending themselves.

Where is Goetz now that we need 1,000 of him?

Just a taste of what is coming. Entitlement payments, which are what is keeping the lid on the slums, are rising with the CPI, but their value is dropping inversely to the expansion of the money supply. They’re almost half of what they were when Obama got in, in real value. The flow of money in the ‘hood is getting sparse, and new sources of revenue will be sought. There will be piles of bodies before this is over.

“White America’s” revenge is that a huge number of such “youths” end up in dumpsters behind abortion mills. They’re being displaced by Hispanics (who are certainly no allies), and are slowly but surely going the way of the Native American. The reservations are urban housing projects instead of rural ones, but most Americans will never see or encounter any of the characters described in these stories. BJ Clinton’s Welfare Reform of 1996 was a turning point in America’s confrontation of it’s Civil War contraband dilemna; the end of “Cash For Kids” had a marked effect by the 2000 census (where Hispanics had passed blacks in number, despite projections that this wouldn’t happen until 2010). Whereas black mayors would turn a blind eye to this violence, the Hispanic mayors replacing them know they spell the death of a city, and handle them accordingly.

Why continue to live in Philadelphia? Concealed carry is big with both the blacks and whites in my area, folks are a little more cautious in my city. Sure a white looking guy gunning down those kids might spark a riot anywhere but it would be worth it, besides that the idiots rioting tend to burn down their own neighborhoods. By rioters I was referring to the relatives and friends of the good Amish kids shown in the video of course.

I'm an old fat fart... I wouldn't mess around with a baseball bat. I've got plenty of tools for dealing with scum like that. I wish the "good samaritan", who also appears to a veteran, had had my G3 or AR, or even my SKS. They wouldn't be looking for the perps if he had, they'd be scraping them up off the sidewalk.

PA is a "shall issue" state. They also have a preemption law that forbids cities or counties from enacting stricter laws than those of the state.

This man could and should have had a concealed carry license, and a handgun on his person. Maybe after this he will, and hopefully the Good Samaritan too.

PA even honors my Texas CHL.

The suspects are described as six black and Hispanic males, between the ages of 16 to 18. Authorities say all of the suspects have been identified.

Good, they have been IDed. And FOP have $1,000 reward offered. Time to clean the streets of such human excrement.
