No hate charges in Center City cab attack (Philadelphia)
Philly.com ^ | STEPHANIE FARR

Posted on 02/03/2012 6:42:59 AM PST by yank in the UK

THREE JUVENILES accused of assaulting a cabdriver and his passenger in Center City Saturday night while shouting racial slurs will not be charged with a hate crime, the District Attorney's Office said yesterday. The teens, who are black, were not charged with hate crimes because there was no evidence that the assault had been motivated by the race of the victims, who are white, said Tasha Jamerson, D.A. spokeswoman. Just shouting racial epithets during the commission of a crime doesn't rise to the level of ethnic intimidation, she said.

I was lead to believe that shouting racial abuse during an assault on a person was the definition of a hate crime. I suppose this only applies to certain people of a certain race, this doesn't apply to Holders people

Simple test,

ask if the races were reversed, if it would be a “hate crime”.

You simply can’t tell me they wouldn’t be agitating for “hate crime” status if 3 white kids attacked a black couple while shouting the “n” word.

Yelling the “N” word would clearly make it a hate crime. Calling somebody a honky or a cracker or a white mother-blanker is the equivalent to New Black Panthers’ brandishing weapons in front of a polling place. Holder: “Compared to what’s been done to my people, this was nothing.”

You wouldn’t even need the assault if the races were reversed, the words would be enough to classify it as a hate crime.

Is this another case of Obummer DOJ justice?Vain speculation suggests had the teens been white and the cabbie a black Muslim there would be no end to the news stories.

The Fort Hood murder, Col Hussan (yet to be charged with a crime) was yelling Alha Akbar (God is Great) during his murderous spree and that was deemed by the DOJ as no more than work place violence. We must be in the latter days where up is down, wrong is right, crime is good, good is bad ..........

“said Tasha Jamerson, D.A. spokeswoman. Just shouting racial epithets during the commission of a crime doesn’t rise to the level of ethnic intimidation”

Certainly not in the case of blacks under the dictates of Holder’s Dept. of Injustice, where he has put the word out that no minorities are to be prosecuted.

Zero, the one who was going to unite us.

seems Philly has a big problem with racism in their black community, this is not the first time this crap has happened.

Of course the DOJ thinks his people have been treated worse so he overlooks it, he puts in all like minded folks in his DOJ and now Romney would be no better as he will not clear out the DOJ or do an investigation into Holder.

I was going to send Seth Williams an E-mail questioning his judgment, and would he feel the same way if the roles were reversed, but if I did that I would immediately be called a racist, and probably investigated a hate crime.

Just do away with that stupid law already. Can anyone tell me if a person of “color” has EVER been charged with a hate crime committed against a white person? We didn’t need it law to prosecute those white boys that dragged James Byrd....the jury sent 2 of ‘em to death row and the other will be in prison for the rest of his life and we did it WITHOUT a dumb-ass, one-sided, racist law! Philadelphia needs to be under martial law, imho. And people wonder why the general population are getting concealed handgun permits. Just DAMN!

From the “Color of Crime”:
Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery. When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.

Interracial Crime
Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.

Gangs
Only 10 percent of youth gang members are white.
Hispanics are 19 times more likely than whites to be members of youth gangs. Blacks are 15 times more likely, and Asians are nine times more likely.

Incarceration
Between 1980 and 2003 the US incarceration rate more than tripled, from 139 to 482 per 100,000, and the number of prisoners increased from 320,000 to 1.39 million.
Blacks are seven times more likely to be in prison than whites. Hispanics are three times more likely.

agree, hate laws are so stupid and only designed to defend the left while they spew their hate and bigotry towards Christians, whites, and straight people. If a homosexual picks a fight with me and I smack him , then he goes down , well all he has to say is that I attacked him due to him being a homosexual. This is why this next election is so important. Hate laws need to go , we have laws already and everyone is as important as the next. Openly serving homosexuals , that survey was bogus and never did ask serving men and women on the front lines, most were to family members and no combat troops like marines were asked about any of it. Holder needs to be investigated after this and those records which are sealed by his royal highness should be looked at and made public. Was the MSM working to get obama elected, that needs to be looked at. fast furious needs an investigation and some charged if found guilty. Govt HEALTHCARE, needs to be stopped, I read the bill of rights, constitution and the declaration yesterday and there are so many passages in those document which state obamacare is unconstitutional. Then there is the judges appointed. The green energy pay off to donors by obama with our tax money needs to be investigated .\\\ I'd also say affirmative action, the program is racist and MLK said he wanted a nation which bases the person on character not color but we have affirmative action which does give priority to others based on color, religion and how they like their sex We cannot afford another 4 years of him and certainly if Romney gets the white house then NOTHING WILL CHANGE so long as he and his business men are raking in more money and we're just pissed on and ignored.

Seth Williams, the District Attorney’s Office, and the Philadelphia media are encouraging violent, racist attacks on white residents by black youth with their refusal to call these attacks “hate” crimes. They are obviously promoting a “separate but equal” standard for “hate” crime enforcement.

trust me you do not want to hear my singing LOL.

If the GOP could use those points then they would connect to the average guy and gal in the rural , burbs and some even in the city.

The average guy and gal has had it but the GOP never connects.

Look at 2008
All they had to do was to show a video of the area where obama was a community agitator, sorry organizing, drive around and show the streets, boarded up stores and house, then end the AD with crime stats and then end the whole AD with the banner saying

“is this the change you want to see?”

Real videos or people and areas with a question at the end gets people thinking.
Instead their AD’s are like for pansies and fairies, they’re boring to see and hear and never connect.

The left are great at gettign their message out and attacking , we are not because those boys up in the north east and the beltway establishment have no clue who the average person is and never will while they stay up in their elitist cocktail pro homo, pro cross dressing parties

No , we’ll being or another crap usual kind of campaign, you know the get out the vote in the last 72 hours.
someone needs to tell the RNC that early voting goes on and millions have already voted before that 72 hours.
what dopes we have

Anyway I’m ranting so I best be off, LOL

Have a good weekend and maybe Monday the establishment will wake up, FOX might stop being biased and oh I will win millions

YEA RIGHT!!!

Hub and I were talking last night and it will be the dumb-assed Republicans that give BO a second term. I wondered if they got super majorites in the House and Senate, could we depend on them to do what needs to be done to start straightening this country out?? I had to say no.....no because there’s too many RINO’s in the joint and no because none of ‘em (except the women) HAVE B@!!s to stand up and do what the American people want. It’s all about THEM and their power! I’m fed up with all of them!!

I’ll be honest and don’;t want to piss any good conservatives off up there but having been up in the north east to live for a small time then it feels like a different country to the rest of America and certainly down here in the south.

If the establishment got out of the north east and DC then they would know this but they seem to think that their elitist circle is America and that we should accept how they live .
Also
I don’t get how on earth a guy who has lost the last 3 states.
Never won one county
never won one voting block
is coming last in NV
Has very little money but uses to attack a guy in second place.

Surely if he wanted to win this he would be attacking the guy in first place not second unless there is something going on here.
Of course when he stated he had God tell him to run then maybe he believes that and does not see he has no chance and is only helping to give Romney and obamacare now the nomination and the future of America.

How did we ever get to this point people cannot see what is right in front of them?
How did we get to the point where people sit there and think now they are told the truth off the MSM and that does include FOX.

I have 3 small kids and I really do despair at their future

Par of the reason I am no longer a liberal is how my liberal friends reacted when I told them of being attacked (more than once) by gangs of “inner city youth.” They called me racist and said they thought I was a skinhead. Neither was remotely true, but they couldn’t handle my bland, objective recitation of facts.

You nailed it. They live in their own little inside the beltway world and don’t see us peons out here who are suffering and being threatened everyday with the possible loss of medicare or Social Security and yes some of us have pensions that are being threatened. Hell’s Bell’s they’re not gonna do without their old-age safety nets and their big pensions. There are those up there like our Congressman as well as those like Ted Poe who really carry the non politically correct banner and are true Conservatives but they’re in such a small minority the bloviating noise from the rest of those worthless clods drown them out. God bless you raising 3 small children and I just hope a good amount of Americans will wake up to what we’re doing to THEIR futures........even our grandkids who except for 1 are teenagers. My heart hurts for them too. Hang in there my friend. Maybe God will hear our prayers after we once again acknowledge him in the public arena.....but that’s a whole other thread. :)
