Sheriff looks to black leaders for State Fair help

Hillsborough County's sheriff is reaching out to local African-American leaders after "unprecedented incidents of violence and disorder" that forced deputies to shut down the Florida State Fair early on Friday night.

Deputies say dozens if not hundreds of teens were involved in a "wilding" event at the fair's opening night, fighting with each other while assaulting and robbing other fairgoers. The chaos got so bad that the 200 deputies on hand could not contain it, Sheriff David Gee wrote.

It’s racist to ask black leaders to restrain black teens.

They are the beneficiaries of the ongoing “Third World” conquest of America. As such they justly feel themselves entitled to a little fun. Many people will be injured and some die all to provide such amusement for these little Negroes.

The sheriff's office came under scrutiny for its response after one of the ejected teens was hit and killed while trying to cross neighboring Interstate 4.

Figures. The "Black leaders" only get involved and whine when one of their own gets his just desserts.

"reaching out to black leaders"

Wonder why they'd do that? We all know that race is not the issue! /s

This will be futile. As Colin Flaherty described in his book White Girl Bleed a Lot, the response of black "leaders" and the media will be to:

(1)Deny the violence is happening, and

(2)At the same time offer "justification" for the violence that they say isn't happening.

The bane of our existence is the ghetto dwelling felonious urban black. Starting at birth, they are conditioned to accept and embrace chaos in their homes and criminal behavior reflecting a unique lack of impulse control. There is nothing to compare this mess with, except, to a degree, the behavior of white trash of the Maury Show variety. Liberals who have never been exposed to the urban negro in its natural habitat except in abstract terms shoveled into their minds in their social justice classes in college only start wising up when they are on the business end of a savage pack beat down. How does it feel you liberal ass hats, to come to the realization that wearing an Obama button ain’t gonna save you?

Here in NJ at the Meadowlands Fair they simply charge enough admission so no significant number can infiltrate it (even though it is close by some urban welfare hives).

Rethinking mob mentality, a state fair tradition

Okay, so dozens, or maybe hundreds, of teens were involved. But 200 deputies could not handle the situation. It would seem to me if it were 200 teens vs. 200 deputies, it would be a slam dunk for the deputies.

This reminds me of an old story told about the Texas Rangers. A town was experiencing a riot, so the mayor wired the Texas Rangers for help. Shortly thereafter a Ranger rode into town.

"What!", the mayor cried, "they're only sending one Ranger?"

"You only have one riot," the Ranger replied.

I live in the metro area. Incident(s) happened Friday night. N-O-T-H-I-N-G in the media here about it/them until mid-afternoon yesterday, and then when stories came out, most of them led with the “14 year old killed in traffic accident” angle. Very, very strange (to me, anyway).

They like to keep these racial incidents quiet, lest the stupid people see a pattern. Not good for business. Every now and then someone dies and the media is forced to look.

I have the solution!

Okay, so I can’t prevent the thuggery from entering the fair (lest we be called racists), nor can we really even report there is a problem or deal with the problem heavy-handed (lest we be called racists), but there is something this Sheriff (or any sheriff with a pair) can do:

1) post a new rule: No Caucasians, Christians or Heterosexuals are allowed in the fair, unless you receive an exemption from the Sheriff’s office (You see, no one will complain about banning those types. But here’s the catch:

2) This exemption will only be granted to those that have been deputized by the office for the purpose of fair security after passing the CCW certification course. All deputized persons must attend the fair with the own personal firearm, and are allowed to bring their children with them.

3) These rules will be posted at all places where gun buy-backs take place, along with the fact that background checks will be performed on all deputy applicants.

Yup, that should do it.

I would not. Not trying to run your business, but it puts you in a no win situation. Should one of the hoodlums injure you or one of your grandchildren, you could expect no help from the law. However, should give one of the hoodlums as much as a dirty look while defending yourself and grandchildren, the full force of the law will descend upon you. A/l/a George Zimmerman. Let the people who attend and spend money to support them stop supporting them and then you will see some changes.

If it is “teenagers”, “youths”, “wilding”, or “partying” they are Blacks. If it is “hoodlums” , “rioting”, “gangfights”, “robbing”,”melees” or “stealing” it is either Whites or Mexicans.

There’s quite a bit of money involved and revenue to be lost with the state fair. Something might actually be done about this.

This kind of activity has been going on at the Florida State Fair for more than 20 years. But this particular event was the worst, most likely exacerbated by social media or cell pones to get kids to all rendezvous at one location to start their “wilding”. I am 46 years old today, Tampa native and I haven’t been to the state fair in probably 25 years because of exactly these events.

And don’t get me started on the Fair Day/no school thing.

I was there, and it was heartbreaking. Most of the kids involved were between 12 and 15. And they got into the fair for free, without their parents, because of those free student passes that were foolishly passed out at the local schools the week before the fair. After the cops finally got control of the situation and threw all the teens out, they scattered. And one young boy got run over and killed crossing the nearby multi-lane highway.

Having been born and raised in Tampa, and never having missed a State Fair during those years, I wanted to verify my first reaction to the article. After all, I have been away for many years. So, I made a call to a friend in Tampa who is the owner of the famous Prophet Parrot.

We chatted a minute or two and then he switched on the sound in Prophet Parrot’s cage. Having known this parrot since it was an egg, it recognized my voice at once, “Awwwk! How’s the Guru”? When I responded “How’s Prophet Parrot?” he said, ‘Awwk - too many Liberals!”

I asked “What’s wrong with Liberals?” and immediately came “Awwwk, there are like Harvard men, you can always tell one, but you can’t tell them much!”

“Tough being a prophet?” I asked. “Awwwk, You got no idea.”

“What do you think about the Yutes ‘wilding’ at the State Fair?” and back came Awwwk! Lucky Ferals!”

“Explain” I asked. Back came “Awwwk! Didn’t meet your 82 year old friend! Lucky Ferals, Lucky Ferals”.

My friend likes a double stack S&W 9mm and carries three extra magazines. Total of 61 rounds. Parrot knows said friend’s brother was a cop who was on the Police Pistol team. Parrot also knows fiend was waaaay better shot than his brother, so much so that he was listed as a cop so the brother’s department could win the local PD competitive pistol matches.

Lucky Ferals, indeed. In Tampa, there are many CCW permitees, many of which could account for a Feral or three if pushed to defend life or prevent serious injury.

The real issue is what will happen when a crowd of Ferals threatens a disabled person like my friend. He can’t take any beating for fear of his life. Unfortunately, he may be surrounded by a perimeter of dead/dying Ferals if he is ever swarmed by “Yutes wilding” as they did at the Florida State Fair.

What a waste of future Rap stars, drug dealers, and expensive self defense ammunition.

Cops hands are tied. They get too rough on the little darlins and the black leaders will call for a Civil rights investigation.
Back in the old days this would have been handled differently. Cops would have cracked a few heads and threw some in jail.
