(NYC) Cops make arrest in hateful ‘knockout’ spree
NY Post ^ | 1/04/13 | Natasha Velez and Kirstan Conley

Posted on 01/04/2014 2:54:45 AM PST by Libloather

It was his turn to get knocked out.

The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force busted a Brooklyn man for at least seven “knockout” assaults, cops said Friday.

Barry Baldwin, 35, punched out the victims between Nov. 9 and Christmas Eve in Canarsie and Midwood, police said.

All of the victims were white women and most were Jewish, a law-enforcement source said. At least two of the attacks occurred on the Sabbath.

Seems ever since the young white man was accused of a knockout punch, this has been taken more seriously, the way it always should have been taken. There is no justification for this brutality.

Thirty-five years old. Well, this ought to keep him in prison until he’s too old to be a threat.

From the article: "Baldwin, of East New York, has no prior arrests."

Translation, the thug just wasn't caught sooner. I seriously doubt that this was his first foray into the criminal world.

No hate crime, he didn't yell Nigger while attempting to break his victims necks.
Nigger must be yelled loud enough for Eric Holder to hear, and since the perp
is the same Color as Holder he's exempt anyway.

“... your use of the N word is offensive and has no place on FreeRepublic..”....

I agree with you, the “N” word serves no purpose in describing the perp. I didn’t need to hear the “N” word to consider who the assailant might turn out to be, the lack of any photo or physical description told me all I needed to know.

I believe the word “nigger” was used as a quote, not as a description of the alleged perp. Or do you think the word “nigger” should always be banned? Isn’t arbitrarily banning a word more offensive than the word itself?

It will be crickets at NYT and NPR of course. Even in my fantasy world, they would run an “update” to their original stories only to declare that now they are certain that all the other “knockout game” attacks in NYC must have been this guy too, and it’s not a widespread thing.

This is Saturday morning: If you can goad the miscreant into arguing with you about his/her use of the censored word, the Mod will be more than happy to suspend the posting privileges of the poster for a week (maybe forever if you do a good enough job) in addition to getting the offending word removed. A twofer!

We can’t have people posting censored words all willy-nilly, can we?

I gave the poster advice, I didn’t suggest censorship. Many posts with that particular word have been removed, not by me but by the owner appointed moderators. Like it or not, F.R. has rules governing language.

Had the usage of that word, used in context offended me, (It did not), I would personally hit the abuse button and let the mod make a decision, I don’t have the power to “censor” anyone but the mod does.

I have no intention of engaging in a “flame war” with you, I respect your opinions, I don’t neccessarily agree with all of them.

Fair enough. And I saw there have been plenty of comments from others on the subject.

But we are being taken advantage of by the enemy because we choose to self-censor too much. Where’s the line? I dunno. Probably somewhere before somebody calls somebody else “that word” as a means of ad-hominum attack, but after quoting the Hip-Hop people who use “that word” all the time, as a means of illustrating what we’re up against in the culture wars.

I don’t think the original remark by MaxMax was over the line because it was part of a reasonable explanation for the behavior of DoJ, and it’s apparent the Mods don’t either.

(I didn’t want a flame-war either. This is Saturday morning, and the last several times I got burned by the Mods were Saturdays, so I was making a sideways comment about the fact there is a Mod who works Saturdays who is a bit of a jerk who doesn’t like Cyber Liberty.)

The anonymity of the internet shouldn’t be an excuse to be offensive. The liberals and media are doing everything they can to paint conservatives as racists. Don’t give them any ammo. I want FreeRepublic to represent conservatism at its best.

No. If we allow them to decide what is “offensive,” we give up control of the language, and then we lose no matter what we do. I am tired of making nice and losing. Maybe I’m just getting old or something, but the older I get the more I believe George Orwell was on to something.

It means something bad according to the leftists, and we should not say it so the leftists will hate us less, maybe even come to love us so much they give up trying to demonize us. At least, that’s the reasoning I see going on in posts 14 and 42.

I believe I’m fairly mild in my comments, been here a little over 10 years and never been suspended. I’ve had several comments removed by mods and once on the religion forum had a comment deleted by the mod and a warning not to use that language on the religion forum. My offensive comment? I used the term, “My B.S. meter”, in a sentence, using the abbreviation, not the words.

I’ve since seen worse than that on the religion forum.

Stay warm.

Liberals hate us and we hate them. But we will not win the hearts and minds of the people if we stoop to levels of behavior which is more consistent with the left. We are better than that. We must police ourselves.

The word means different things to different people. Conservatives should be able to find better ways to express themselves forcefully than using the N word.

I’m not talking about “stooping to their level.” I’m talking about not letting them control the language. I don’t personally use the word in question, both on and off the forum. I discourage the use of it by others, because I know it’s a hurtful thing that diminishes all involved. But, when describing bad behavior, sometimes bad-intention words must be used because it’s part of the behavior, which was what the poster did whom you called out.
