Allen West on white boy’s bus beating: Where’s Jesse Jackson?
Washington Times ^ | August 9, 2013 | Cheryl K. Chumley

Posted on 08/10/2013 2:45:56 PM PDT by neverdem

Former Florida Rep. Allen West had harsh words of criticism for nationally known civil rights activists like Jesse Jackson and the Rev. Al Sharpton, who have remained silent on a video showing black teens beating a white boy, 13, on a school bus: “Ya’ll just make me sick.”

The video, which went viral this past week, depicts a July 9 assault on a Pinellas County school bus. Three black teenage boys, all age 15, beat a white boy, while the bus driver — who has since resigned — tries to verbally halt the altercation but does not physically intervene.

The beating, it was later reported, was due to the victim’s report to school authorities that one of the videotaped assailants tried to sell drugs to him...

Report at Fox News site, and (based on this posting) Washington Times website. NOTHING (that I can find, anyway) in the local Tampa Bay area media.

Maybe they expelled the victim so it can't happen again.

He also did not do nothing. The moment he became aware of what was happening, he was on the phone calling for help.

I don’t personally blame the bus driver for what happened.

“Maybe they expelled the victim so it can’t happen again. “

If he were my kid, he wouldn’t be going to a school within 20 miles of that one!
Home school, even better, of course.

I agree with you, and that was my first thought about the bus driver. He was an old guy, and scared.

He called the police, which is what they constantly tell people to do instead of intervining themselves.

I hold more at fault the school administration that did not act immediately when informed those 15-year-olds were selling drugs at school, in effect allowing three more Trayvon Martins go from bad to worse. Early hard intervention might actually save some of these young men their lives later on down the road.

What is Allen West doing in 2014? I know he got slammed down in 2012, but he needs to pick himself up again and announce he is running for the seat again.

The problem with your theory is that President Obama has told schools not to do anything to a black child unless they can railroad a white child to keep things even.

That is what killed Trayvon. Instead of calling the law when they found him with stolen goods they called the Jewelry a recovery and not a theft. The hid the thief, and he went on to bigger things.

That is now the policy in schools. Let the blacks go , hang the white. We want better numbers. Crazy???? Hell yes it’s crazy, but look at the President, It’s his idea.

I call BS on that. The old boy was scared. Plain and simple. As a bus driver nowadays, you don’t DARE raise your voice at the little “darlings.”

Okay, let's take a look at this. He was doing his job.

Suppose the driver knew what has already been disclosed, that the three assailants were alleged drug dealers. What happens if he intervenes? First off, he's fired. Second off, he and his employer are liable if he hurts someone. Third, if he gets hurt himself, which is more likely, he runs the risk of leaving a bus full of kids without adult supervision with assailants on board.

Bus drivers are told not to intervene in altercations for good reasons. They're responsible for everyone on the bus, not just one unfortunate child. Does it suck? Damn straight it sucks. But is it what has to be done? Equally sadly, it is.

In thinking about wildings, flash mobs, gang violence, polar bear hunting and other urban terrorist activities like beating white kids on school buses, I’ve come to the conclusion that black thugs are cowards. There is power in numbers, but they use that power to prey on weaker victims. It’s almost enough to make me think better of Trayvon for having the grit to assault someone by himself. Maybe that’s why Trayvon has become an instant urban legend amongst hip hoppers, gang bangers, gangsta’ rappers and race hustlers. He did his ground and pound by himself.

Sadly, I have to disagree. There is NO level of intervention now that can reverse the path of these SMs*. They have already been hard wired.

Intervention in these things need to start at 5 or 6. (If that's what you mean by "early intervention," then I really agree.)

After that, the animal has already metamorphosed.

The school admins, police and local newsies scum will glom onto this like a pit bull on a chew bone. It excuses them from calling it what it really is:

AN EFFIN ANTI WHITE HATE CRIME.

Bet me.

Here’s what West had to say: “Yes, Trayvon Martin shooting was a tragedy which the usual suspect race baiters and progressive media are using for political gain. Where is the outrage for the recent killings in Chicago of a 6-month-old black baby, 16-year-old black honor student, or 17-year-old black teenager who refused to join a gang? The focus is on the symptoms which promote political gain, not the disease which now afflicts the black community. And I am tired of white liberals invoking the heinous memory of lynchings.”

"BC fraud"

Because that's the most important issue facing the country by far...much more important than crime, education, foreign policy, energy, etc. Yeah, let's put all our energies in trying proving Obama is a foreigner. Good idea pal.

Don't know what the School has done but the three pugilists have been charged with aggravated battery.
Reddin is also charged with unarmed robbery. All three have been released from police custody.

Jessie is afraid of blacks:

“There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”

I just got to say this.
WHY is it always 3 to one in these situations?

When I was a kid if you had a beef with another kid it was always one on one even if all your buddies were on your side.
It was a point of honor.

3-1 is the baseline ratio for predatory attacks. Doesn’t matter if it’s wolves, killer whales or da’ hood. The only way that gets broken up is if the intended target is bigger and badder or someone or something intercedes.

I caught less than a minute of CNN around 545 pm and they were discussing this news. There were 2 libs bashing West and his comments. They claimed, oh no this wasn’t a racial crime. No evidence. But I’m sure these 2 thought different about the Zimmerman case tho there’s no evidence race was an issue.

Not that it makes much difference but these punks probably didn't even have 'real' pot to sell the 13 yr old. They play the age old hustle and try to get younger kids to buy a fake bag of weed so they can take the money and get themselves some real stuff. That scam is as old as the hills in the hood when it comes to cheating whitey for money.

To think this little white kid was horrifically beaten because he did the right thing and told on them. He did exactly what all the parents and teachers and authorities told him to do in such a situation. And look what it got him. These little coward thugs should never be allowed back in that school.

There’s a lesson to be learned here. If you are white and you don’t want the force of the race baiters bearing down on you and you’re getting the living snot beat our of you by black people, you simply take it like a man. Do not fight back. Do not defend yourself. The evidence is apparent.

Could you imagine what would have happened if the little white kid had a weapon of any kind and it was used defend himself? What would Jesse say? What would Al say? What would Oprah say?

We’ve seen the evidence and we know the lesson.

West isn’t making any sense.

The kids got beaten for telling the school administration that the black kids tried to sell him drugs. I think a black kid trying to do the right thing would get beaten too.

The kids were arrested right away.

Not everything is about race all the time, and the constant PC games of how everything is racist all the time is getting old.
