Hate fueled weekend beating says elderly man
FOX Toledo News ^ | April 3, 2012 | Jennifer Steck

Posted on 04/03/2012 5:23:07 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

TOLEDO, Ohio (WUPW) - Saturday afternoon around 4:45 p.m., 78-year-old Dallas Watts was walking home from the gas station at the corner of Starr and White in East Toledo.

He was confronted by six juveniles between the ages of 11 to 17, and for the next three or four minutes was nearly beaten up to death because of the color of his skin.

Watts is calling the weekend attack that occurred a block away from his Mason Street home a hate crime. During the attack, Watts says he brought up Trayvon Martin, the Florida teen killed by a block watch member Feb. 26.

"Why me? Remember Trayvon! Remember Trayvon!," Watts recalled. "I meant it as a peaceful way. What happened to Trayvon, I was not responsible for, I live 1,000 miles away! But they kept saying, 'Kill him! Kill Him! Kill him!' because I'm a white man."

Unfortunately this story will get as much traction as the white man on life support because he was car-jacked and beaten with a hammer by two Black thugs I can try to bring it to the attention of the networks but I suspect since it’s not sensational enough a sell to promise a ratings boost, they’ll pass. Makes me ill.

The victim appears to be Caucasian, so do we have to guess what race the little thugs were? Did I miss it in the article?

Three of the six youths alleged to have been involved in the attack have been charged, Sgt. Toney said. Two of the unidentified youths were charged with one count each of robbery while another youth was charged with disorderly conduct.

He should have carrying one of these.....as I do; would have been an entirely different story.

Truth is, in today's society, I see more than one young black male approaching me....this beauty is coming out of its holster. I'll let fate decide what happens next....and yes, I'm perfectly serious.

Jesse, Al, Spike, da Black Pamper boys and a bunch of two bit hookers and pimps posing as politicians have got the hatred stirred up. Good job boys and girls! Hey Holder! What are you going to do about it? Things are about to get out of hand in this country! The blood will be on YOUR hands if you and that dumbass Napolitano don’t act quickly!

Because of animals like this, and Trayvon Martin, and the race pimps who urge them on, every state should have a “stand your ground” gun law and every citizen should have a gun and know how to use it.

This is why the Founders gave us the 2nd ammendment.

If these animals want a race war they are in the wrong part of the country to start it.

Someone came to my door today and said that she couldn’t speak above the dogs barking and wanted me to step outside. I told her I would get my husband. She walked across the street to bother a sunbather. My hubby went over to talk to her. He said she seemed to be on drugs.

Now that NBC has admitted and apologized for the editing of the Zimmerman 911 call, he can used it as evidence what their manipulation of truth has caused. Good for FCC to see,also.

This society is well on its way to becoming a bunch of BS. I don’t know if decent people with good intentions are enough to hold it together.

And do the BLACK kids that did this get a free pass from our wonderful society?

Or the elderly couple in Tulsa, both beaten (wife raped, died the next day in the hospital). Nor do you hear any more about the black teens who doused a white boy with gas and set him on fire saying the white boy got what he deserved.

Paging Jesse and Al.

Of course, the text above should have read: "He should have been carrying one of these..."

The S&W is a great weapon. I opted for the Glock 30 due to its size; I have small hands. Biggest surprise was the lack of any serious recoil. Amazing gun to shoot.

You are right, they don’t mention it. I think I just jumped to the conclusion when I saw 10 against 1 - pack mentalitiy. ;)

Just another lie by omission from the media.

Stupid cretin.

And the NBC & ABC coverage is largely responsible for inciting the idiots. The damage they cause should be blamed on the media, race pimps and Obozo. Sue the bastards. Impeach the Liar-in-Chief.

Were these the charges for two of these thugs BEFORE this incident, an earlier event?

Why do these wicked freaks single out the elderly to gang up on? They are the worst of the worst and deserve absolutely no leniency.

Remember the murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom? You don’t?
It was ignored by the national media.
It was not a hate crime.
The kids were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Disgusting at what the media will play up these days.

It appears that blacks have declared war on whites. And how long, again, do whites have to pretend it’s a random thing?

THAT a-hole needed a 55-gr sleeping pill, too. Exactly. But for those nights when it's really tough to nod off permanently, I recommend the 185 gr JHP in the convenient .45Cal dispenser size.

If you think that's bad try doing a Google search using "Black Crimes Against Whites" for other crimes the media has failed to report

Black Crimes Against Whites
