Teen arrested in sucker-punching of Pa. teacher
Associated Press ^ | Oct. 10, 2012

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- A teenager who sucker punched a schoolteacher in a downtown alley - an attack caught on surveillance video - apparently picked the victim at random, police and school officials said.

The attack happened last Thursday at about 3:30 p.m. The surveillance video, which Pittsburgh police used to make an arrest Tuesday, shows the 15-year-old suspect walking with several other youths past 50-year-old James Addlespurger.

It’s Pennsylvania, so it must be one of those violent Amish teens on a rumspringen.

These random attacks perpetrated by "Amish" youths are spreading.

We recently had an incident where a city bus rider punched out the "non-Amish" driver for no apparent reason as the perp was exiting the bus. Fortunately, the bus had cameras on it, and his face was clearly shown. The slimeball has been arrested.

Another incident not too long ago involved a bunch of "Amish" youth in a car who shot (and killed) a 60 year old "non-Amish" man who was jogging. They're still trying to track down those murderers.

I’m just guessing here but due to what I can see as zero videos that this is the work of our wonderful amish youts in Pittsburgh.

Whadday mean, “no apparent reason”?

The “non-Amish” guy was white, wasn’t he? What more reason did the kid need?
What more incentive did he need other than the implication from the president and the chief law enforcement officer of the nation that he’d get away with it because of his skin melanin content?

Call me racist if you want to, but no way i could have passed the half dozen Amish youths in an alley without getting ready for mortal combat. I may bave even turned around and gone the other way. My apologies to the good Amish.

My hand would have been on my pistol, and the first “Amish youth” that made a move would have been found at that same spot dead by supersonic lead injection.

lock the POS up and throw away the key. The punk has this kind of behavior bred into him and there will be no changing it. Spare his future victims.

The suspect attends a school for troubled youths...

The suspect needs to attend a different sort of "school", but probably never will.

I'm sure you realize it already, but if you do that, just be fully prepared to strike decisively and disappear quickly, because law enforcement will be seeking you out with all the means at their disposal.

"We don't know the mind state that that young man was in, but there's something very terrifying about it," said Pittsburgh Councilman R. Daniel Lavelle, whose district includes downtown. "In the video it appears he was laughing afterwards, which is very disturbing."

Not sure what the details of this case are, but I'm pretty sure you'd have a definite opinion of what the motive is, Mr Councilman, if the attacker were white and the victim black.

Just my guess.

Charles Bronson became a major international movie star in the 70’s for some reason.

And it certainly wasn’t his good looks.

The right hand is concealed. Is it holding a weapon? I hope the guy in the green T (blondie) has a CCW. Even so, this is a tactically precarious position to be in. I’m heading back the way I came looking for cover.

It's called "KNOCKOUT GAME!"

Yes, this is certainly a Knockout Game attack. The investigating police must have recognized that too.

The police have a duty to call it as such, and the media has a duty to report it as such. They can avoid mentioning race if they must, but the public must be made aware that the Knockout Game exists.

Subsonic lead injection via .45 ACP is pretty effective as well.

apparently picked the victim at random

The media is continuing to slide to oblivion. The white elephant in the living room is not blocking the view from the rest of society.

The "Knock Down" game is part of the racist black youth culture. It's victims are innocent whites. How about calling the crime what it is? A hate crime committed by blacks against whites.

As the Gaul said to the Roman “Woe to the conquered!” Whites are well on their way to being a conquered people and as such will suffer injury or death for black amusement.

The slime sitting on the curb to the chick gawkin!
We know who the perp is because he is in the lead of the
Amish street gang!
Good thing the Vic did not have a beard to be cut off for this to be a hate crime!
Good thing is the young man now has a credential to be in a local street gang when juvie hall releases him!

Let;s stop the Amish joke crap. It’s worn out. Let’s ID them as the black, 30 IQ savages that they are. They’ll murder you and your family in your bed and not lose a minute of sleep. The black, racist commie cowards will send a wall of 10-year-old kids out to kill you, and you best be psychologically ready to kill them all, because they will kill you, your sons and your daughters. The commies like obuma will exploit your honor to murder you. Hesitate and your family is dead.
