Posted on 12/26/2013 9:21:55 AM PST by Carbonsteel
Federal authorities said Thursday they have arrested and charged a Texas man in connection with the knockout game, accusing him of a hate crime for targeting a black man for a vicious street attack.
Most knockout victims that have appeared in news reports have been white, but the Justice Department said in this instance the victim was a 79-year-old black man, and stepped in with federal charges.

No double standard there. Nope, not at all.
The Obama administration is down for the struggle./sarcasm. :-)
Good men do nothing...
It’s all a matter of “whose peoples” get clocked.
If it was a white man hitting a black man; then it wasn’t a case of the knockout game.
But nice try to the Lame Stream Media for trying to confuse the issue.
Get used to it. Soon, they will allow black animals to hunt us down like dogs with the encouragement of the liberals.
First, they will have to take our guns away but hey! They’re working on that as I speak.
An evil crime like this is evil, no matter who perpetrated it. Who cares what race it is? Attacking a 79 year old man is just plain evil.
These charges make sense. It’s exactly the same charge that is filed against black thugs who target white victims in the same game. Isn’t it?
Revolution is coming. Obama and the Thugocracy has overreached.
I take it that the knock out artist was of the white persuasion? Regardless he should spend a good length of time in the poky.
“The plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?” Mr. Barrett says in the video, according to the authorities.
Apparently so. Blacks play the knockout game and its no big deal. Let a white guy do it, and it is National News AND a Hate Crime.
Simply asking Professor Henry Louis Gates if he lives at a house: Racist
When you look at the incidents in isolation they are just crimes.
Like the way the left wanted us to look at Muslim terrorist attacks on Americans...
But, when you tell the truth about it, the “knockout game” is a semi-organized, Executive Branch-encouraged race war.
They are Marxists which the Marxist propaganda machine posing as our fair and impartial media does everything to protect.
p.s. the whole idea of hate-crimes is stupid in my opinion...
Smarten up!!!!.... The Feds have never pressed charges on a black playing knockout game against whites. The Ubungu regime could care less and most local authorities remain in denial about black assaults on whites which vastly outnumber white on black assaults rape murder etc
Wait. What? I thought it was white hispanics that had a license to go out and ambush skittle totin’ young black dudes who weren’t casing apartments to rob and acting like they had a chip on their shoulders. Weird huh?
When we do it, it's an urban legend ... when you do it, it's a hate
crime ... and there's nothing that you can do it as long as this
racist clown is responsible for enforcing our laws!
Che white guy needs to be prosecuted, but maybe get a sentence overturned, for reverse racism. Selective prosecution!
Let’s form the “Conservative Caucasian Caucus” to agitate for OUR rights!
Yes it is in at least one case; a Muslim in NYC was charged for an attack on an Orthodox Jew back in Nov.:
Is it applied proportionally by race and or creed; probably not.
Don’t expect Equal Justice Under the Law in America, not now, not ever.
We have seen such inequality throughout our history and I would not expect it to end any time soon.
What “Knock-out game”?
You know some how, some way, this guy will be tied into the Tea Party, I can just smell it.
Totally agree. Very well put, MrB.
The pattern is obvious. Individually, the crimes are heinous no matter who commits them. But clearly most are black-on-white and various governments, law enforcement agencies and the press are covering that up.
Well, at least we know what it takes to get the Feds’ attention....
I understand that completely. Setting race aside for a moment, I am sickened by ANYBODY beating up any elderly person.
I didn’t know there were “Black Polar Bears”.
Blacks do it, ok. Or more like “it’s not an outbreak” But when one white man does it, the full weight of the Imperial Federal Gov’t falls on him.
Oh he’s wrong to do it! But everyone who does it does wrong!
Aside from the the video of Barrett committing the attack and commenting that he wanted to see if he committing such an attack would get national attention, there does not seem to be too much evidence to make it a hate crime.
I say, "Bring it".
This guy didn't do too badly. And he had no gun.
Sometimes it really does seem as if Obammy and Holder are trying to push whites into a violent confrontation in order to use more government power over us.
I guess he doesn’t look like one of Obama’s sons, so they can charge him with a hate crime.
The DO”J” continues its hunt against whites
by its flash MOBs and by its cherry-picked Lawfare.
THIS will be the News (along with imagined weather)
for the MSM for a week.
It’s worthy of note that it was the city who charged him with a “hate crime”, not the feds (as is the case of the Texas suspect).
Actually, all polar bears are black. They just look white because of their fur, which, oddly enough, isn't white but transparent -- some trick of light.
(Don't know how this applies to the topic at hand, but thought it interesting.)
Part of it is that the media is so in the tank for Obama. The media scarecly report stories of knockout games, but when they do, never report that it’s almost always black perpetrators.
I am not setting race aside until the Feds prosecute both the same.... black assaults on white and white assaults on black. You can notify me when this happens.
Have hate crime charges been filed in any of the black-on-white cases?
You seem to be double posting today...
More racial profiling from the most racist and bigoted administration in U.S. history. It’s only a “hate crime” if the perp is a honky.
In other words, it’s all right for a black to attack a White.
Hate crime laws were created to put White people in jail for anything they say or do, or don’t say or don’t do, and to set free non-Whites who physically attack Whites.
I’m being proven right every day.
DOUBLE STANDARD ON STEROIDS!
Thanks! You made me look it up.

Does this have any bearing on Nancy Pelosi’s looks?
