WBZ-TV ^ | February 16, 2014

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

CAMBRIDGE (CBS) — Police are looking for a man who was apparently throwing sucker punches at random victims on a Cambridge sidewalk where one of the assaults was captured on video.

A witness says a man and woman were leaving a store on Massachusetts Avenue near Dana Street when an assailant approached from behind and punched the man in the head Saturday afternoon.

The man was staggered by the punch and both he and the woman fell to the ground, suffering minor injuries.

Cambridge Police said the suspect punched another man in the face earlier in the day.

I will bet even money that the assailant is black one of Holder's people, before I even watch the video! [The reason I struck the word and inserted Holder's people is because only a few black people are voluntarily reducing themselves to the jungle-ape mentality of this idiotic knockout crap condoned by Holder and the other racist pricks in this current racist regime.]

Unfortunate that the camera was able to “capture” one of the assaults but was not able to “capture” any information regarding a description of the assaulter.

I noticed some unwarranted assumptions about the “gender” of the three.

It’s a tad presumptuous to say that a “man” sucker-punched another “man” and that the “man” and the “woman” he was with fell.

How do we know that the puncher isn’t actually an androgynous-female-identifying lesbian trapped in a “man’s” body? How do we know that the couple weren’t actually a pre-operative trans-gendered male-female, and zir’s companion is a male-identifying genderqueer?

The author needs to educate humself STAT. Check the link for more urgently-needed information:

Given the location, the victim was likely in denial about these fictional attacks. He will likely forgive the attacker and blame himself.

Well, I can’t get the video to play, but I assume the perp is black because the news outlet refuses to report his race. Is that what the clever people who write the media stylebooks want us all to take away from these stories? ‘Cause it’s working.

Isn't Cambridge MA one of those loony places where the Ivy Leaguers and tech gurus bask in the local color of the homeless and minorities, ever patting themselves on the back for being so diversity oriented and enlightened?

Put me on the jury, I’ll give the guy 3-5years in a split-second.

I'd ask if the victim is a liberal first. They voted for a lawless nation and I'll be glad to help them with that.

Not that I am against carrying firearms but how can being armed protect from a sneak attack from behind like this? After the hit the man was down and out on the ground and unable to respond. Even if he were not, if the perp disengaged after one hit and tried to leave the scene would it still be legal to shoot him in the back?

The response to these attacks require other measures.

If this had happened to me while walking with my wife, the next thing you'd see after me hitting the ground is a muzzle flash and the perp lying on the sidewalk besides me...

How about 'come back here you %$# coward and do that while I'm facing you' then bang bang when he obliges.

Hopefully your female friend will corroborate your account of how you begged him not to come backhand hurt you again.

The details are included in another article by CBS Boston:

"The assailant is a black man in his 20’s wearing a black coat, dark knit cap, and blue jeans with a black sling-style backpack. His motive remains a mystery."

“There’s nothing I could have done differently, really,” said the first victim. “There was no time to react.”

“To me he just seemed mentally disturbed,” she says. “He seemed under the influence he was listening to music really loud and he was just walking around yelling.”

Kudos to CBS Boston in the second article:

"Cambridge Sucker Punch Victims Speak Out"

http://boston.cbslocal.com/2014/02/17/cambridge-sucker-punch-victims-speak-out/

The assailant is a black man in his 20’s wearing a black coat, dark knit cap, and blue jeans with a black sling-style backpack. His motive remains a mystery.

Draw your own conclusions. Inset is from a few seconds prior and at 90 deg to the camera position. Victim is ahead. I mistakenly covered it with the inset but his fist is clenched and locked for a punch.

Here's one for 'contrast'; inset of the victim & his gal in the frame of the prior inset.
