BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) - Three people, including a teenager, were sent to the hospital on Mother's Day after they were attacked at a local gas station. Officials say the incident was unprovoked and do not believe it was a robbery attempt.
Officials say a family - a 36-year-old male, a 41-year-old female and a 14-year-old female - stopped at a gas station located at the intersection of Scenic and Plank at roughly 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 12. As the man was waiting in line to pay for his gas, he was approached by the suspect.
Investigators with the Baton Rouge Police Department say the suspect, Donald Ray Dickerson, 41, walked up to the man and said "you're in the wrong neighborhood and you're not going to make it out." Dickerson then began to punch the victim in the face.

Where are the federal hate crime charges?
When good old fashioned street justice returns to prominence in America, and it will, I am not going to feel bad in the slightest.
If that POS had done that to me he would have gotten his head blown off.
“I was with the family today Unfortunately, Yes it is a hate crime. To tell someone “you’re not going to make it out”, is a death threat either way you slice that cake. The 14 year old bit a chunk out of one of the attackers shoulders and pulled hair out to try to save her mom who is currently recovering from breast cancer and been through hell the last 18 months.”
The family’s ‘crime’? Being white in a black neighborhood.
If a group of whites were to have assaulted a black family, it’d be national, no INTERNATIONAL news.
This happens and the largest local media source (The Advocate, Channel 2 WBRZ-ABC affiliate) doesn’t even cover the story.
Not even LOCAL news covers this story because they are afraid of ... what? Justice?
Why even bother to comment? Their prezzy is alright with this as is the msm and half of congress. The other half is gutless.
The charges should be upgraded against the person who knocked the wife down and caused her to hit the concrete and be knocked unconscious...
Good grief...do these fools really think those dreadlocks do anything but make them look ridiculous! He looks like he has a whirly-bird on his head or a tarantula!!
....”All three defendants, Dickerson, Bessye & Simmons have had run-ins with the law prior to Sunday’s incident”...
Are we surprised?
And I would do it without blinking an eye.
These savages need to be dropped without a second thought, it's past time.
Just watched an older flick called “Falling Down” with Michael Douglas......he did just that....didn't give a crap any more and simply went on a spree whenever any of the thugs harnessed him.
He looks like he has a whirly-bird on his head or a tarantula!!”
...the ladies love it! ~sarc
>>”Where are the federal hate crime charges?”
Two guys assist a primary 41-yo perp in engaging in felony assault...
...a hate crime at that...
...leaving one of the two female victims unconscious (the article doesn't say which female victim was unconscious, but does say a 24 yo & 22 yo each physically assaulted a female)...
...and yet they are treated almost like "Here's a speeding ticket...be on your way?" ????????????????????
(The article says...and then ends with: "The 41-year-old female attempted to intervene and stop the attack. When she did, she was allegedly attacked and hit by Devin Bessey, 24. The 14-year-old victim also attempted to intervene, but she was then hit by Ashley Simmons, 22. Both Bessey and Simmons were charged with Simple Battery...Bessey and Simmons were both released at the scene with a criminal summons for their misdemeanor charge.")
Shame on the Baton Rouge P.D.!!!
More evidence people need to lawfully carry a weapon to protect themselves!!!!! (Because the P.D. won't -- even when they have the felon-perps in their presence! They will just slough off felony assault like a moving vehicle violator!)
Had it happen to me ...alone..on my bike...
Only had to flash my shoulder rig and say “I will get gas where ever I want”...
had em looking at me ...but they didnt say shit while I pumped my gas and left..
“Bessey and Simmons were both released at the scene with a criminal summons for their misdemeanor charge.”
It would be ironic if they failed to appear in court. Ever.
gotta have the wife pump the gas while you cover security detail these days.
I pumped gas with my left hand while I held a .357 in my right once... while thieves literally circled my truck. One wrong move and it was BBQ time.
Looks like that already happened by th epic... bullet exited the top of his head however no brain matter was encountered on the way through.
It is Black Ku Klux Klan racism to not charge these blacks with hate crimes
Need to Trayvon those dudes
This needs to be sent to every major news outlet, cc’ing each one so that it is clear to them that everyone else knows they received the story. Holder was right, we have been ‘cowards’ about addressing racial issues. The arrow of racism points in all directions, and racism can’t be addressed by blaming one race.
Well, I guess if I looked like that I’d be angry at the world also.
“Not even LOCAL news covers this story because they are afraid of ... what? Justice?”
This is journalistic malpractice; report it so at least whites know they are in danger if they are in that area. I live next to Newark NJ, and while everyone in my town knows you have to get out by sundown some people in wealthier suburbs to the west don’t know how bad it is (because of the “bad-news blackout”). They are the ones who get mugged/carjacked/etc.; at this point I assume (as does the NEwark police department) that any white person in Newark not visiting an entertainment venue is looking for drugs, prostitutes, or both.
Make that “any white person in Newark AT NIGHT...”
Aside from the cloying kumbayah-ness, that statement is both subtly disingenuous and spectacularly naive.
Lets try this:
Open Season on street thug 'reparation' practitioners.
One/several approach you, putting you in rational fear for your own or your family's safety, it's OK to drop 'em where they stand.
Dial 000 for a Street Dept. crew for pick up and hose down.
Then, when the knock out game seems miraculously to have lost its appeal to that subset, we rinse/repeat with the next group of ambush kings.
What's that ??
No Swedes or Austalians or Inuit or Asians seem to be playing that 'game' with innocent passers-by ??
Curious, that . . .
Yeah then the victim of the hate crime would become the perpetrator.
My solution, conceal and carry.
Get a carry permit,
Learn to shoot,
I can't walk the streets were I grew up, actually can't really drive a car through there without risk of being shot. I've seen race riots up front and close, and gang bangers have killed people right down the street from my childhood home. I'm not naive.
The reason I phrased it the way I did was because the majority of blacks, including the many who are my valued friends, don't think the way these POS think. There are likely plenty of black FReepers who are as angry or angrier about this than you are. I didn't want to paint with a broad brush, but that doesn't mean I don't know the realities.
What I really think is that anti-minority racism in this country, and indeed throughout much of the world, has been supplanted by a seething resentment-filled hatred against whites. I think this has been fed by politicians and the media by pushing simplistic politically correct narratives for decades, while avoiding a real examination of the truths underlying racism and economic disparity.
Obama is the ultimate example of this. He truly believes that black children are being shot in inner city Chicago because ‘the privileged’ (mostly whites) have not paid their ‘fair share’, have suppressed blacks, and have held-back minorities from prosperity. In my view, Obama holds that belief, accompanied by a lot of resentment, probably near to the same degree that those who did this to that family do. He is a destructive ideologue, and has done much to hurt race relations in this country.
Having said that, I have also personally witnessed egregious white against minority racism, although truthfully I have not seen much of this overtly for a long time. That it isn't seen much overtly doesn't mean it doesn't exist anymore. The point is that we will never be able to address these problems and overcome the racial distrust, resentment, and sometimes hatred that exists without the ability to openly discuss the issues in a no-holds barred manner. Everything, and I mean everything has to be on the table - no matter how offensive some may find the comments made. The very fact that this story has gotten little airplay is a perfect example of how the truth in race relations has been buried.
Oh, in general I agree with you that there is plenty of kumbayah-ness going around - and much of it is propagated by those who have never personally had real experience with race.
Paging Soledad O’Brien for the Black/White race talk YOU don’t want to have honey.
I've chores to tend to this morning, so won't tarry long here, but would like to toss in two short observations, neither of which are mine, but both of which I endorse wholeheartedly.
The first was posted by our own Swampsniper earlier this morning, while the second has been around since at least 1866 :
1) It isn't about color, it's about culture
2) We shoulda picked our own damned cotton
Cheers to ya, and thanks for your measured reply.
Blacks can do no wrong. Shame on us white folks for even thinking that they can. /s
This incident is just one of many examples of white Americans being violently attacked for being white on a public street;
“663 different, documented attacks for being white on a public street, 427 innocents murdered”
The news is now afraid of the IRS. Report the wrong news, get audited.
Years ago a friend of mine was being robbed at knifepoint while filling up at a service station when he sprayed the assailant with gasoline and threatened to light him up. The punk took off crying.
The wife is as good a shot as I am with a handgun; I guess we could do rock/paper/scissors to decide who works the pump.
BTW, this is the second "pumping gas while white" attack reported in the past week. Must be that "new civility".
I wish that monkey would have tried that with me. The results would have been drastically different.
and yet they wonder why there are no grocery stores in some neighborhoods. If people refused to gas up in the inner cities and these businesses closed, it’d be called racism
I’ve received the same treatment twice right after the Saint Trayvon incident ( I live in central Florida) - the black aggressors were looking for a fight both times and were hurling all manner and form of racial whitey, cracker, honkey m***f****r, boy, etc at me.
Nothing like textbook racists.
However - must have been my look or stance.....pumped gas w/ one hand and kept the other hand free and my eyes on the ball.
Both times their intuition told them to approach no nearer than the 8-10 feet where they stopped. They’re smart enough to know if hurt is coming their way.
Going to be a long hot summer if/when Zimmerman is set free. Ignorance cannot be reasoned with - it must be shown.
Wonder if whites will ever wake up? Whites are under attack from all sides and many just sit like a deer in the headlights even though it effects their families and communities. It will ultimately be directed at our children. We are under attack on the streets, from the MSM, from our educational institutions and last but not least from our own government.
Just who are the real slaves?
You’d think by now everybody would know better than to drive into obviously hostile areas. Let alone stop.
What kind of gang wears pink shirts as theri “colors”?
Youd think by now everybody would know better than to drive into obviously hostile areas. Let alone stop.
No everyone does not know because the media wont do its job. And the monolithic government ed system spouts PC lies.
