EXCLUSIVE: Mob of teens attack man in downtown Cleveland
19 action news ^ | Feb 11, 2014 | Ed Gallek

Posted on 02/13/2014 10:06:01 AM PST by moonshinner_09

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.

~~~They were saying, ‘Knock that white boy out.’”~~~

Sons of Obama? So, when will he be claiming them as his sons?

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.

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.

Cleveland bus riders need to have concealed carry permits.

Don’t step onto a bus unless you are heavily armed.

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

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.

“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?

Like in racist public schools where too many minority students are being punished..

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.

Probably they were Lithuanian and thought he was Polish. They weren’t saying “Cracker,” they were calling him a “Krakower.”

The left is so truthful when they cry out that there is still rampant racism in America, the problem is that they omit the fact that the most overt and physically brutal racists are BLACK people.

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.”

"The victim said not only did the group taunt him with racial slurs, they also videotaped the incident."

Video taping would indicate a need to provide proof of their worth or loyalty to a cause or group. That suggests to me centralized organization and planning, which would go a long way towards explaining why the MSM and local law enforcement consistently attempt to trivialize these incidents.

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.

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.”

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.
