They did not want any trouble, they said on the video. To the black mob that confronted them, threatened them, beat them and robbed them, it was no trouble at all.
So they grabbed their iPhones, but not before the girls fought back to retrieve them. Unsuccessfully.
All the while one of the members of the crew was rolling video.
Members of this mob call themselves the 44th Street Crew in Southeast Washington. For those not familiar with the different sections of Washington, that is not the lobbyist/media/functionary dinner-party part of town.
Reporters at the Fox affiliate in Washington seemed surprised at the mob violence. But to people who ride the Metro, it was just another day.
Metro police have seen so much of it they are ready with instructions for riders who encounter it: Resistance is futile:
Theres nothing worth fighting over and getting assaulted for, said Deputy Chief Ron Pavlik of the two women defending themselves. There are lot better ways to fight back. Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2012/12/black-mobs-take-over-washington-metro/#bHaCd2hKzoLxXx8V.99

>> Where are the police officers?
Uh... union meeting?
Youts also know the gun laws protect them not the victim
Washington, D.C. is simply the worst-run municipality in the nation. Yes even worse than Baltimore, Philadelphia, or Detroit (other nominees accepted too!)! The main difference being that as the seat of the federal government, there is a permanent built-in recession-proof fairly affluent class. But many parts of DC are absolute hell-holes, the public schools are a disgrace, and all branches of the local government are riddled with incompotence and corruption and cronyism.
If Washington city doesn’t want its citizens to protect themselves, than its the responsibility of the city to protect its citizens.
If I were a smart lawyer, I’d be looking to launch a class action lawsuit against Metro and the city.
They can’t keep a cop in each and every car that runs through the eight or nine Metro routes in DC. If you are lucky....there might be one cop on the entire train....for one of each three trains running through DC in the evening hours (that’s being real optimistic).
Having ridden the Metro...I can offer these observations. It’s a ‘playground’ for the punks. They avoid the morning rush-hour period entirely, and there’s never any trouble during the evening rush-hour. The more people in a car....the less likely they are to make a mob scene....they like to enter a car with less than ten people in it.
So far, no one has shown a gun in the three years that I’ve been in DC. I’m waiting for the day that someone draws a weapon and shoots one of the punks. Course, there are video cameras and with DC’s gun laws...you’d face a fairly big mess in saying you were defending yourself.
The Metro cops and DC cops are useless. If you want to see a worse situation...go out into southeast DC...into Anacosta and drive around after 9PM at night. No one....not even the people who live there....takes that risk. People will talk about community and how the area was back in the 1960s....but they will tell you to stay indoors after dark. It’s like some third-world zombie-land where your life is in peril.
And the best part....you are never more than 5 fives from the Capital building or the White House. One of the most dangerous places in America....all within a thirty-minute walk of the capital.
No, but they could allow each and every law-abiding rider the option to carry a licensed concealed weapon.
Yeah don’t fight back says the Police officer that carries a gun mace and a taser and has a radio to call for rapid back up..
Sewer rats. Where is the Aum Cult when you need them? (/s,sorta)
D.C, across the Anacostia River is like a third world country. Wards 7 and 8 are the worst.
Good people and there are a lot of them over there are living in a war zone. They can't even sit on their front porch in summer for fear of a drive by shooting.
Home Rule in D.C. is a failure (as it has been every time it has been tried) and the Feds need to stopmessing around and re-instate the old city commissioner system.
Sowell did say that the media were trying to keep the lid on a burgeoning race war. The lid cannot be kept on forever, and the media are abrogating their responsibility to the public and to the peace. Never mind the authorities . . .
Just more of the Black Ku Klux Klan Racism no one in the media (even GOP Talk Radio and Media) wants to talk about.
If large groups of Blacks are comitting crimes against whites and other races, it is Black Ku Klux Klan Racism. Lets call it for what it really is
Shoot the bastards!!
Would you want to go through what he did?
Paging Paul Kersey.....
Yup. I was stationed at Bolling AFB in the 80’s. Used to go to the Mac-Donalds on Martin Luther King Jr and Malcom X avenues up by St. Elizabeth’s mental hospital, sometimes at night.
Even the street names said you were in the wrong part of town.
I used to work part time at night out on 14th Street at the VA. Took Metro back and forth from the Pentagon, up to 11:00P PM.
Nothing ever happened to me. Guess I was lucky, or it was a different era back then.
There are lot better ways to fight back.
Really? Pray tell.
Call you guys on the cell phone you no longer have? try to pull a gun maybe?
Just what are these better ways to deal with savages?
No, they aren't. They're slanting their news coverage to fit their political agenda--as with the recent union violence in Michigan, which only Fox News covered.
I lived in S.E. in the mid 60s, it was a crap hole even then, I imagine it's worse now.
I was referring to the stuff that the lib media doesn’t cover. I don’t recall seeing these WMATA incidents in the news, never mind a slanted appearance therein.
I suspect the amount, and types, of drugs being consumed has a lot to do with the sharp increase of black crime. Prior to 1980, only a relative few went harder than marijuana, at the very least, because the other stuff was just to expensive.
Than came crack, and other cheap but highly addictive drugs. My experience, through observation, is that drugs are at the root of probably 90% of all crime.
Bernie Goetz please pick up the white courtesy phone.
I was in Lebanon and Israel during the 1983 war. I felt safer there than in DC.
Commonplace in “the Age of Obama.” There is no doubt that the policies and pronouncements of the 0bumble administration has emboldened the criminal element among the black population.
“No one knows what the two white women were doing on that Metro in that part of Washington, D.C.”
This is how the story leads off, because they have made this the story. If DC is anything like Newark NJ, then the only time whites (usually men) are there after dark is to buy drugs or prostitutes.
Whatever their motive is, I’m glad the media wants to know why 2 white women would ever be near such animals.
It took 15 Posts until someone pointed out the problem.
It’s the same in every large city run by blacks.
It’s what the news ignores.
“Prior to 1980, only a relative few went harder than marijuana, at the very least, because the other stuff was just to expensive.”
NYC was much worse than that, at least 10 years earlier (kids starting out sniffing glue, etc.). The white flight from the related crime made the city unrecognizable by 1970.
I agree DC needs CCW.
I have written, twice, to both of my Senators and to my Congressman asking them to introduce legislation for this purpose. I've even been in a situation, right in the District, where I would have drawn my weapon if I was not such a law-abiding citizen. It is a DISGRACE that Congress won't deal with this, using one of their few ACTUAL constitutional responsibilities.
That having been said, a ten-on-one assault in a crowded subway car is a tough shoot any way you look at it. No matter what, you still own the bystanders.
Washington DC Metro Transit Police have arrested two juveniles after an alleged cell phone robbery led to a fight on Metro. The incident was captured on camera.
The suspects call themselves the 44th Street Crew. The fight was filmed by one of the gang members.
The video, which was posted on Facebook, shows the suspects intimidating several young girls on a Green Line Metro train.
One of the girls whose phone was grabbed fought fiercely to get it back.
Metro Transit Police Deputy Chief Ron Pavlik says if passengers are confronted with this type of situation, they recommend giving up their property.
Theres nothing worth fighting over and getting assaulted for, says Pavlik. Be a good witness at that point, adds Pavlik. Call 911.
There are a lot of ways to deal with this situation better.
BAng-bang will cure a LOT of ills.
Then make them FREE!
The sooner they OD and disappear the better!
I call it ObamaViolence.
They got it covered.....
“The MTPD has an authorized strength of 420 sworn police officers, 106 security special police, and 24 civilian personnel. Officers provide a variety of law enforcement and public safety services on the Metrorail and Metrobus systems in the Washington Metropolitan Area.
MTPD police officers have jurisdiction and arrest powers throughout the 1,500 square mile Transit Zone that includes Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia for crimes that occur in or against Transit Authority facilities. It is the only tri-jurisdictional police agency in the country “
“No one knows what the two white women were doing on that Metro in that part of Washington, “ — they need permission to be there???
Even with a weapon, one against 10 in very closed quarters is an almost guaranteed end result for the victim. You may take a few out with you, but it's not gonna end well.
My money would be on avoiding this environment altogether.
I had the misfortune of visiting DC on business one summer. Not realizing how close the airport was to my hotel, I got a rental car and ended up lost like an idiot (before the GPS days). It was a real scary place to be at midnight...
You've all heard that old story about running red lights because you were afraid to stop... well that's exactly what I was doing. If you stopped at a red light, as soon as you stopped rolling, the group of thugs on the corner would start to approach your vehicle. There was a reason the area had little traffic and I knew it.
I swore to never return and I haven't. I wouldn't even drive through that place again without a tail gunner and a navigator.
As Capitol Hill has gotten expensive, Anacostia is just one of the close-in areas that is attracting new interest. Capitol Hill is also expanding north, across H Street up to Gallaudet. Even Trinidad (between Gallaudet and Bladensburg Road) is changing. A coworker bought a house there last summer, and I just dropped off one of my daughter's classmates there last night. Not scary. Not that I'd want to hang out at the convenience store late at night ....
One by one, the old housing projects get shut down, and areas start to come back. But I don't want to get started on LBJ's madcap experiments that Great Societied the cities near to death. That's a debate for a later time.
My point about Anacostia is that we need to stop stigmatizing the whole area. That means burrowing down into sub-neighborhoods and learning a new urban geography. There are still plenty of rough spots, but they're starting to shrink as the improving sections expand. Like any city, you need to know where you are and have situational awareness. Suburbanites don't want to get lost in Anacostia late at night, or downtown Baltimore, Philadelphia, Chicago, LA, or any other big city either, but there's no reason to invent mythologies about these places. A lot of good people live in these areas, and are fighting to reclaim them. Situational awareness.
I moved onto Capitol Hill more than 30 years ago when housing was a bargain and surburbanites thought we were crazy because the neighborhood was heavily melanin enhanced. (Even at the time, there was more street crime in Old Town Alexandria than on Capitol Hill, but Alexandria was considered chic. Go figure.) A new generation is continuing to press the urban frontier. This is one of the purposes for which God created young people.
Ten or fifteen years from now, we will be seeing stories about how people got rich on Anacostia real estate. That first ridge east of the river commands sweeping views of the river and the city; it's heavily wooded; it's highly accessible to downtown yet quiet and not traffic clogged; and it has a great built-in local park network (the fort circle parks). In any reasonably healthy major city, this should be premium real estate. It took massive bad planning (LBJ and the project fetish again) to wreck it. It WILL come back. In the mid-term, the recycling of the St. Elizabeth's complex is a big story to watch. That alone could flip a big part of Anacostia pretty fast.
P.S. A simple example: I've played a lot of football and softball, and my daughter has played a lot of soccer, in Anacostia Park. It's an idyllic location: open, grassy fields right on the river across from the Navy Yard and boathouse row; scads of little kids playing soccer; family BBQ's and birthday parties in the picnic grounds; the high school crews doing their thing on the river on Saturday mornings. You couldn't ask for a nicer place to play, aside from the (slight but noticeable) slope down towards the river. Yet it's part of Capitol Hill lore that surbuban teams from time to time would actually forfeit games rather than come into dreaded "Anacostia." This is cluelessness on steriods. It's a mistake to stigmatize the whole area.
When seconds count, police are just minutes away...!
So, not only are the cops not protecting the people, the cops are telling people to surrender to these hoodlums. Brilliant. Great way to encourage more attacks. If the damn cops and government weren't so pathetically PC and they would say, "We suggest all citizens arm themselves. You have the right to defend yourselves against these vermin. They must be exterminated." But, no. These attacks will go on until some politically connected person gets killed by these vermin; then all hell will break loose.
Concealed handgun: Because it weighs less than (a) a police officer, and (b) the guilt of not defending my family.
