CLEVELAND, OH - There's evidence of more violent teens running around the heart of downtown Cleveland.A disabled Army vet spoke out about the latest attack that happened Friday, Feb. 7, 2014.
Matthew Robinson told our Ed Gallek he was riding RTA's Healthline when six to eight teenagers surrounded him on the bus, and then started following him. Cleveland Police hustled and found three of the suspects running from the scene.
They apprehended an 18 and 19-year-old guy, plus a 16 year-old-girl who had the video on her phone.
Violent teens and even mobs have been a problem around Public Square recently.
Last month a teen was brutally beaten on the square, and at times the power of a massive police presence was needed to take back the square.
Matthew, a disabled Army vet, wants his story to be a warning to everyone living, or venturing downtown.
"Your mother or sister could be on the bus, and the same thing could happen to them," added Mr. Robinson. Then, he said they attacked, took his stuff, and videotaped what they were doing.
The incident went down at 6th and Euclid, and the crowd scattered when cops showed up.
Robinson told 19 Action News, "What they were saying was, 'Knock that boy out!' 'White boy.' 'Cracker.' They were saying, 'Knock that white boy out.'"
The victim said not only did the group taunt him with racial slurs, they also videotaped the incident.

Were the perps Holder’s people?
Riding Healthline sounds dangerous to your health.
Since the article didn’t say anything I assume this mob was Amish?
Nah. I believe the correct PC term meant to lessen the hate crime charge is “ethnic intimidation”. They’ll walk and they know it. After all, their boys are large and in charge now with pens and phones.
There will be pressure from the fed DOJ to drop them.
I think I’m just not gonna even read these abridged stories anymore. You know, the ones where they refuse to identify the race/ethnicity of the ‘alleged’ perpetrators? It is just too cumbersome to have to search for it only to find out what was likely is true.
I’m so proud of this man for speaking up, instead of mouthing the usual platitudes about “I don’t know why they did it, it was just a random thing”.
Cleveland bus riders need to have concealed carry permits.
Don’t step onto a bus unless you are heavily armed.
The parents of these feral thugs have failed miserably!
police are unsure if a racial hate crime occurred. you know because the attackers were black.
whites attacking black with racial slurs == definitely hate crime
blacks attacking whites with racial slurs == cops unsure if it’s a hate crime
well they did have quotes with white boy and cracker in them, wasn’t too hard in this case to confirm what we all correctly assumed.
There. Fixed it.
Yeah...I know but if the words were changed to “N-word, etc.” you can bet your a$$ the lead would be “White Right Wingers......” and there would be a quote from Holder saying how he was gonna prosecute on Federal Hate Crime laws.
I thought hate crimes were federal? And anyhow, the current administration at "Just-us" has said that hate crimes happen when a minority or protected class is victimized, not the other way around. Handicapped white veterans may qualify but it's not clear if it still applies when the haters are also a protected class.
What part of Liberia is Cleveland in?
“Teens” is a code word used by white racists just like the word “thugs.” The headline writers have to find a new word. /s
Nope they won’t be charged. Last year everyone was wondering why no one was going to Jacobs field(refuse to use its bastard name) even thought the Indians were good and made they playoffs, maybe something to do with being killed by feral blacks?
the Obama/Holder Dept. of Just Us and Our People must take action to see to it that at least a minimum of five times as many whites are arrested on hate crime charges for what they are surely thinking about these rambunctious youths. It's the new normal.
I am shocked, SHOCKED I tell you.
The last time I was in Downtown Cleveland I did not
see another blessed soul.
stop patronizing the above in droves, and we'll finally see action....loss of money talks....
folks....you just can not go to any of those areas...
Who do you think is egging them on?
No go anywhere that there is a large percentage of same.
Is this why blacks were forced to sit in the back of the bus?
Probably they were Lithuanian and thought he was Polish. They weren’t saying “Cracker,” they were calling him a “Krakower.”
Let’s face it the mentality of many of these half wit thugs is that they are carrying on their own little race war.
Holder has said that black white crime can NOT be racist.
I was going down to Bo Loong for Dim Sum. Had to park on a side street. Got out of my car and saw a bunch of fugs walking away from me. Three or four saw me and turned around. I jumped back in my car a split. Waved down a Cleveland cop, and informed him. He quite rudely told me “Find another restaurant.”
Maybe people knew something more than they were given credit for, back then.
I’d have to say, I’ll find another city in which to spend my money.
Thing is,,, every time I eat there, there are uniformed cops there eating. I thought about telling the owners, but then realized that they probably liked the police presence. Even the Good Harvest Asian market often has armed guards outside the front door. Chinatown is mixed into the ghetto in Cleveland.
Black youts in my old hometown are sure behind the technology curve. I haven’t seen anybody videotaping in a long time.
Baraq needs to get them to the other side of the “digital divide”
The highly-tanned Amish again, huh?
“Teens” must be the PC term for black criminals.
I follow Derbyshire rules on this, and the 30 ft rule. Even carrying, you can’t see a sucker punch coming. I can’t remember all the stories I’ve read just this year of some innocent victim being put into a coma or even killed by a sucker punch, then falling to the concrete. My life and that of my family is more important than someone’s feelings. When/if this situation is dealt with, I might care again. At this point, probably not. If the ones responsible cared enough to deal with it, they would be speaking out and dealing with it instead of covering it up or trying to deflect from the situation by hollering rayciss at whites for breathing.
I am always on situation awareness mode now, even going to the grocery store in broad daylight, and I don’t even live or operate in a “bad” area. but IMO, things are really that bad.
It is. Some “teens” who were recently arrested at another mobbing event, were in their 30s. Their age is not the common denominator, and we all know it. It is quite easy to decode the msm’s coding terms.
“Teens.” That says the same thing as “Holder’s people.”It is the current eupheism for “Negroes.”
Lost an opportunity to cleanse the gene pool of some garbage, didn't you?
Most assuredly. But if in this case it were white-on-black, they’d be eviscerated
“Lost an opportunity to cleanse the gene pool of some garbage, didn’t you?”
I would prefer to not have to shoot someone.
I cannot find fault with that answer. I would prefer to keep it that way as well. But my firearm is only a danger to anyone who attacks me. I won't be going "Brown Bear Hunting", if you know what I mean.
