Allen West on white boy’s bus beating: Where’s Jesse Jackson?
Washington Times ^ | 8/12/13 | Cheryl K. Chumley

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, 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.

The boy suffered a broken arm and two black eyes. And the three 15-year-olds, identified in Sunshine State News as Joshua Reddin, Julian McKnight and Lloyd Khemradj, fled but were later caught by police and charged with aggravated battery. Joshua also reportedly faces unarmed robbery charges, Sunshine State News said.

Now Mr. West wants to know why Stevie Wonder — who announced a boycott on concerts in Florida to support shooting victim Trayvon Martin and repeal of “stand your ground” gun laws — isn’t speaking out against the three assailants, demanding justice for the white victim. And he wants to know where Mr. Jackson and Mr. Sharpton are — given especially Mr. Jackson’s slam of Florida as an “apartheid state” for the acquittal of George Zimmerman, Sunshine State News reported.

“Three 15-year-old black teens beat up a white kid because he told school officials they tried to sell him drugs,” Mr. West said, earlier this week, Sunshine State News reported. “Do you hear anything from Sharpton, Jackson, NAACP. Stevie Wonder, Jay-Z, liberal media or Hollywood?

Amazingly, the..Revrund...Jacksuuuun responded, his lame statement is here, from Breitbart. All he could do is deflect, in a subconscious way trying to justify this beating. In other words what can you expect from a pig other than a grunt? Hey Stevie, how's the FLA boycott working? PLEASE! Bring it on!! It's crowded enough down here.

Why would Jesse Jackson address this incident? There’s no one to shake down. What kind of money can he extort from a bunch of teenage thugs. Jackson and the rest of his race-hustling crew is only interested when they see dollars.

This writer did not report all the facts. According to Fox News, the White boy was 13, small for his age, who told school authorities that the three criminals were pressuring him to buy drugs. They found out and were going to teach him a lesson about thug rule.

It sounds as though the Reverrrend is disappointing the victim didn’t die,.

“Where’s Jesse Jackson?”

Where’s the FBI ‘hate crime’ investigation? Oh, the kid was white...never mind.

snitches get stitches . . . isn’t that the MO for Team Obama, too, as it goes after leakers and whistleblowers? The White House itself is all thug rule.

So are there no Blacks on the White beaches of Miami thanks to the boycott? Sounds nice.

Pray for America to Wake Up

doesn’t fit the narrative...

Black beating up on white just doesn’t happen, isn’t possible. Jesse himself has NEVER beaten up a white person.

At least not physically.

I guess those kids are too young to remember those southern trees with the strange hanging fruit.

He would gladly show up but here is a small problem, the difference in price between black and white customers for his services.

Mostly we Southerners call the local Sheriff nowadays, before taking matters into our own hands. Or in a real pinch, we just kill them, and then call the law.

Except for certain inner city gangs and rural area non-english speaking “hard working immigrants just looking for a better life” types.
They “do” drive by shootings or throat slittings/body burnings, same as they do everywhere else in the nation.
