SeeBS ^ | 4-27-12 | Matt Snyder

Posted on 04/27/2012 8:11:46 AM PDT by TurboZamboni

Tigers outfielder Delmon Young was arrested for hate crime assault in New York City early Friday morning. The Associated Press reports that Young attacked a group of men while yelling anti-Semitic epithets.

From the AP: Police say Young was standing outside of the Hilton New York, not far from Times Square. A group of about four Chicago tourists staying there were approached by a panhandler wearing a yarmulke. As the group walked up to the hotel doors, Young started yelling anti-Semitic epithets. Police say it's not clear who he was yelling at, but he got into a tussle with one of the Chicago group, who sustained scratches to his elbows

The season began with such promise, now the hits keep coming.

Just another proof that the black segment of our population continues to be the most racist component.

I thought that in Holder’s testimony before the Judiciary Committee, he made it clear that blacks could not commit hate crimes because of some contrived historical BS. Does anyone else remember that.

Oh, and also, i think the whole verbal hate crimes business is all BS. As far as I’m concerned, as long as you are not directly threatening another person’s life or limb, you should be able to pretty much say what your darn well please.

Frankly, there are some people I hate, and I should be free to tell them how much and why.

This detail is far more shocking than the Delmon young stupidity.

“a panhandler wearing a yarmulke”

Think about that. That is a rare sighting. Is there another racial/religious group that has fewer panhandlers?

FYI - crooked lawyer not the same as panhandler

Full release of Brandon Inge, yesterday. Not the bestest of infielders but you cauld tell he “left it all on the diamond” every game.

He will be missed by my family.

Man...the Tigers season is going south fast...funny how the two teams (Angels are the other) that shelled out staggering amounts of money for players are both tanking right at the moment...

I hope Tiger management has the brains to keep him out of the line-up in New York over the weekend.

No kidding, Inge was the real heart and soul of the Tigers. He's been there longer than all but the owners.

Sorry to hear that. The last survivor from the Tigers' historic 119 loss season in 2003, I believe.

Considering the fact that he's doing all the hitting of late, I wouldn't count on it.

A hate crime AND his race wasn’t mentioned. For those of us not into baseball it means one thing: he’s black. If he had been white his race would have been mentioned - or the color of his hair - or a picture would have been printed....

I'm a Yankee fan but was always impressed by Inge's hustle.
This will help ease the pain ...

There’s no such thing as a hate crime. I refuse to give it credibility even if the left does.

Fact is that young was drunk and got into a fight, the end.

Age is starting to catch up with Brandon Inge but he’s been a great all around athlete.

I know people who have met him and they say he doesn’t carry himself like a pro ball player. He’s just a regular guy who loves playing the game.

That could probably be said for 95% of all players until the 70s/80s when they all became overpaid prima donnas.
Can you imagine Lou Gehrig or Ernie Banks being arrested for an assault/hate crime?

I agree, cripplecreek. I’ve never believed in thought crimes - and shouldn’t have used their language...

I could imagine Ty Cobb being arrested for an assault/hate crime. He was one of the most despicable human beings to ever play MLB.

He looks mean. I don’t want him near Derek. Is he in jail for the rest of the series?

I agree and there were a few others as well. But as I said in my post - 95% were not like that.

Alan Trammel “negotiated” his own contracts with the Tigers management. For the last few years of his career, it was on a yearly basis usually the first day after the end of the season.

Cobb was no angel, but I don't think he is quite the monster people made him out to be.

On the bright side.

When there is a movie made about the incident, Delmon Young will be played by Mel Gibson.

I agree. Some people should just never drink.

Especially if you’re already prone to being a moron when you have not been drinking.

It is because they have been taught that they are victims of whitey their whole lives.
