Teen Set on Fire in Racial Attack; Media Silent
The New American ^ | 01 March 2012 | Selwyn Duke

Posted on 03/01/2012 10:55:20 AM PST by Paladins Prayer

“This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy.” So spewed the attackers of Melissa Coon’s 13-year-old son, as they doused him with gasoline and set him alight.

Police, they say, are “investigating” whether this is a hate crime.

Yes, and I’m investigating whether the media is biased and if hate-crime law is applied equally. I’ll get back to you on that — in about two paragraphs.

The attack on the boy took place on the east side of Kansas City, Missouri. Fox 4 Kansas City provides some (sanitized) details, writing, “The victim is a student at East High School and regularly walks home after class. When he reached his porch, two older teens grabbed him, pinned his arms behind his back and then poured gas from a gas can on the boy. They then set the boy on fire.”

Thankfully, the teen victim had the presence of mind to pull his shirt up over his head and snuff out the flames. He was treated at Children’s Mercy hospital, having suffered first-degree burns to his face and head. And police said they were concerned about possible damage to his eyes and lungs.

The concern, however, isn’t translating into national media coverage — or honest coverage anywhere.

When will the double standards end?

A good start is 10,000 liberals at the bottom of the sea.

I am sure that Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Hussein Obama will all NOT comment on this horendous act.
Also silent will be NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, et al.
No beer summit - no soda summit, and of course the police are
“looking into” whether it is a hate crime - which it will not be!!

OMG - maybe it was his name?

Seriously, though, that is awful.

We don’t need no stinkin’ “hate(sic) laws”, though. Just being serious about punishing with the laws that naturally already exist.

Everyone has their “enough” point.

When the non-minorities get over their “guilt”, that enough point will get REAL ugly.

There is no such thing as black violence, only white aggression. Any violence engaged in by blacks is merely a conditioned response which they are not responsible for.

When will the double standards end?

When there are no colors and the human race homogenizes...in about 200,000 years.

Or when one group or the other is dead. In about 10 years at this pace.

Double standard.

Hellacious double standard. We’d see it in every news outlet if the races were reversed.

But...this boy was remarkably unharmed after having gasoline “poured” on him and set afire. 1st degree burns? A few hours at the burn center? Compare that man in NC who died after splashing gasoline on himself and lighting a cigarette. He was so badly burnt I’d look at murder; this boy got off so lightly I’d look at a hoax.

The “Double Standard” will end when we end it! Whites, so far, appear so demoralized that they are unable to effectively respond to black attacks. Whites are no longer a people, but have abdicated their right to govern and are now a mere demographic not a People!

It is possible to only have 1st degree burns from this. The longer you're exposed to flames, the more damage is done.

As it said the boy had enough presence of mind to pull his shirt up to snuff the flames

You forgot to mention that it is also a "revolutionary" act that pushes history forward another notch towards a utopia of "social justice."

I don’t care if it’s a hate crime or not (just as I don’t care when the victim is black, Hispanic, or gay). This is attempted murder, and the thugs should be sentenced as adults to life without parole. With the correct punishment for a vicious and evil crime, why would it matter if there was a lesser charge included in the charging documents?

I also forgot they are not responsible for any wrongdoings, mistakes, misappropriations, malfeasance, or anything which comes up short of any standard of betterment. Their benchmark is giving us the privilege of their intentions regardless of consequences.

Good thing for them, that I'm not King.

They would be having their necks stretched.

Life without parole wouldn't even come close to an option.

Cool picture of a dude about to blow himself up by firing a load from a shotgun into a device with a teeny, tiny hole in it. Must be an Italian flick or something.

“Some folks are just mo’ equal then others..”

You can thank the “Civil Rights Act” of 1964 for that.

One of the most destructive pieces of legislation in American history.

We are reaping the seeds that that law has sown...

The assailants already have precedent for their defense. They but have to claim they are Muslims and were offended by the boy being white and Christian. Well, it would work now in Pennsylvania.

Only white people can commit hate crimes, didn’t you hear?

And furthermore, only they can be racists.

In fact, they can not not be racists. It's innate, a characteristic of the race.

It can not be a hate crime, as it wasn't an empowered race attacking a non empowered one.

Black liberation theology... the same culture 80% of city blacks are raised in, I see it everyday here in baltimore. That is what is taught in church,school and the home. “ White folks greed leads to a world in need “

Actually it is only white gentile people who can commit hate crimes, while all other religions, ethnicity, and races are fully eligible for victim hood. It is a double standard, and if you complain, you can become the bigot if you accept it. Many double standards have come to exist in the USA that are not only blatantly racist, such as enrollment at Harvard but are getting worse.

As much as the picture depicts most conservatives’ sentiments here, the thought of illustrating the righteous angst experienced (justly) at this farce of “hate crime” questioning just doesn’t sit well with me by using this sick-puke liberal as a coalescing icon. He is the very last person I’d prop up as an example. His goal in making this movie wasn’t anything near connected to conservatism.
