‘Knock That White Boy Out’: Arrests Made After Mob Of Teens Attack Disabled Vet
WKRK-FM ^ | February 14, 2014

Posted on 02/14/2014 7:42:06 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

CLEVELAND, Ohio (CBS Cleveland) - Cleveland authorities have made several arrests following the mob beating of a disabled Army veteran by a group of teenagers.

Last Friday, the victim, Matthew Robinson, was surrounded by between six and eight teenagers while riding the RTA Healthline. Robinson told WOIO that he was attacked by the teens, then robbed of his possessions.

During the attack, the teens made several derogatory remarks about Robinson.

“What they were saying was, ‘Knock that boy out!’ ‘White boy.’ ‘Cracker,’” he was quoted as saying about the incident. “They were saying, ‘Knock that white boy out.’”

This week, three suspects – Kenneth Matthews, Ronald Reid Williams and an unnamed 16-year-old girl – were arrested by Cleveland and RTA police. The latter filmed the attack with her cell phone, and was said to still have the video at the time of her apprehension.

Despite the arrests, concern remains as other attacks of a similar nature have happened in the area, most of which are said to have been perpetrated by other young culprits, according to WOIO.

Added Robinson of the danger, “Your mother or sister could be on the bus, and the same thing could happen to them.”

Time for an Anti-Knockout Solidarity march through the Hood by Reverends Jackson and Sharpton.

They did for Obama’s look a like “son,” so now they can do the same for the Vets!

BTW, isn’t one of those Reverends always talking about rainbows, and equality and Justice?

Just because the author bent himself into a pretzel making sure he didn't say 'black boys' doesn't mean they were 'black boys'.

Well.... yes it does, but that just involves things like facts and how can you get anywhere with facts ?

I think the ‘yutes’ see Obama and Holder and their criminality and figure they can do whatever they want also. This comes from the top down. Lawlessness will reign until we have Leaders who have respect for the Constitution and the Law.

Oh really! You know, as “melanin challenged person,” I always go around calling other white folks “crackers.” I mean it’ just the thing we all do while attacking our own.

I have begun carrying a Browning Hi-Power with a 15 round Mec-Gar mag which protrudes only a tiny bit below the pistol butt. My spare is a 20 round also by Mec-Gar. This is mostly because of all the stories of outrageous Black conduct since Obama and Holder have emboldened them.

I wish I still had a Sig Sauer P226 but the Browning is just as reliable. I wish it was double action but carrying it cocked and locked is not really as dangerous as it sounds.

I also keep a 30 round mag of unknown make in my car, tho it is probably Argentine military. It is of very high quality or I would not keep it.

Ii do keep a look out as everyone should.

And...

There is a special place in the infernal regions for the likes of this mob. (They deserve to have an all-veteran jury, n'est ce pas?)

FEEL FREE TO SEND THIS TO YOUR “REPUBLICAN” CONGRESSMAN

What is your opinion?
It baffles me that the republican leadership whom I call GOPES (gop elite snobs) running the party don’t understand that Obama created the Zimmerman episode just to solidify his black base .

That they stand around and say nothing about this glaring injustice.

Let alone said nothing as the radicals in control of the democrat in name only party turned it into what many would call the demo-com party.

A strange marriage between crony capitalists and 70’s radical academics (radacs)Whom in the good old days when true communist believers actually existed would call
them and the polit-buero-crats that support them communist pigs .

Obama was facing a drop in confidence there was Bengahzi, Fast and Furious.

He needed victims

He did so by using the proven good old fashioned political tactic used by God denying;

Oh by the way Congressman . Sir Did you know the democrats tried kicking out any reference to God at their last convention ?

But put His name back in booing the decision as the party chair stuck it back in like they did Obamacare. They sure don’t believe in the 10 commandments especially when it comes to lying and there seems to be a bunch of other commandments that don’t apply to them either.

Well following socialist/communists like Stalin and Hitler when they decided to achieve a political goal. They used an relatively innocent eposode which could be manipulated. When along comes this case in Florida

And created a needed “incident”.

Take a bl-racial part black security guard working security in a gated integrated modest income housing complex where blacks also live.

But are being victimized by black youths committing burgalries and thefts .Which is why the area is gated and has people working security

Where on a errand the security guard spots a youth acting suspiciously and decides to observe the youth’s activity Calls in his report to the local police and breaks off his surveilance and while returing to his vehicle is attacked

He is knocked to the ground with his head being beaten on a a private concrete walkway and his attacker is struggling for the guards pistol

The guard manages to get to his pistol first and with one shot at close range kills his attacker in self defence

As everyone knows this was turned into a white security guard working in an exclusivly white housing complex That was stalking a pre teen black child because he was wearing a hoodie that he shot and killed because he was black. Then the President of the United States issues not one but two statements. One comparing the youngster to a child he could have had and later exclaimng “that could have been me”

The questions I have for you and for black members of your audience sir are

What I’d like to know is does any of your black audience know the facts? But believes the garbage I just cited that continues to show up

Do they think it’s right for Obama to have used his office to appeal to blacks and promote civil strife? .

Do they actually believe as President he did not have the facilities available to determine the facts or that before he made any utterance on this subject he was not apprized of the facts in this case ?

Do they wonder why as many killings of whites, hispanics, and asians are motivated and attributed to the Zimmerman case by black youths continue. Why Obama has done nothing to distance himself from his actions ?,

Lastly What has Obama done for them ?

This week, three suspects – Kenneth Matthews, Ronald Reid Williams and an unnamed 16-year-old girl – were arrested by Cleveland and RTA police.

After their felony convictions, incarceration, and release, the current Attorney General of the United States says that these people should be able to vote.

Absolutely right, Black folks feel they have the green light to be lawless, and nobody’s going to stop them. It's going to be up to us, those especially who conceal carry, to even out the thug playing field. Recently saw a video of three black boys in the act of holding up an off-duty Chicago cop at a gas station, as he was filling up his car for the trip home that night. The three mutts run up to the cop, one with a gun in his hand and tell him to give them his money, while one of the other guys is rifling through the cops car for booty. The cop pretends to slowly reach for his wallet and instead pulls out his gun and shoots the gunman in the head..the punk was 16 years old. The other two run away, and the cop runs up to the dead gunman on the ground and kicks his gun away from the man's body. Good work by a good cop. They caught the other two men. One more thing...the mother of the dead gunman said she holds no grudge against the cop...she acknowledged that her son was committing a crime, and that the cop did what he had to do. This is one for the books. Usually momma is sobbing about how her baby was a good boy, etc.

There are millions of us out here that are also Vets and NOT disabled. There are also a few more things that need to be considered, we are Armed and Trained. We just may be called upon to use those skills in the near future unless the fire under the pot is turned down, its close to boiling over.

It would surprise me none if her son physically beat her up and was abusive numerous times.

Stories like this are infuriating. Lawless kids — black kids — beating up innocent people. We should be angry with these kids and the parents and system that produced them. But please let’s remember that there are a lot of young black men in the military and in other parts of society who don’t do this. Who are a credit to the country. The police need to pursue the thugs who did this and others across the country who do this aggressively and throw them in jail for a good long time.

The Vets are already trained.

I fit at least two of those categories.

My understanding, and this is from a self-defense course taught by a law enforcement officer, is that disparity of force (e.g. a gang against one person, or an able-bodied person against a disabled or physically weaker victim) constitutes deadly force, and can be answered with deadly force, even if the attackers are unarmed.

For various reasons, I can’t always CCW, but I always have a knife (legally, of course). And I have taken the time to learn how to use one. Hence, they BLEED.

Your way works too, of course.

Yes, you are correct. I cannot carry when in a northeast city, Washington, DC etc. I carry a tactical flashlight in that case.

Most of these young thugs do not want a fair fight. They pick on easy white people; disabled, elderly or unsuspecting. I try to avoid being in a vulnerable position and would flee to a safer place to take them on in the light and in public, if absolutely necessary.

Would hate to fight them hand to hand without my CCW, but if I have to, certainly will. They are without conscience, and totally ruthless; yet they are cowards.Best thing you can do in a city where you cannot carry is profile and avoid trouble by keeping your distance.

Yup. Situational awareness is key. Was taught that by my Dad, who grew up in a tough place. Gentlest man alive unless someone threatens his family. Do that, then he brings the wrath. Only seen it once. Was a BAD day for the fool who crossed that line.

PS I also always have a tac light. Aluminum frame. Funny, you can bring those on a plane...
