Cops: 5 in custody for Temple attacks (Hate crimes near campus)
Phily.com Blog ^ | 03/25/2014 | staff

Posted on 03/25/2014 3:50:48 PM PDT by Kid Shelleen

It's not clear why a group of high school girls lashed out at Temple University students Friday, but, with five girls in custody, police are hoping to get that answer soon.

Five girls, ranging from 14 to 17 years old, turned themselves in to Central Detectives today, Capt. Frank Banford said. The girls came forward after seeing news reports about a series of three attacks near Temple's campus Friday night, one of which left a female student bruised and bloodied after being hit with a brick.

"They saw themselves in the video, and knew that sooner or later, they would get caught," Banford said.

Maybe it was just a sorority prank. Definitely can't be a hate crime. /S

I bet it was black on white crime. That is unusual but the girls weren't from that part of town, were they?

I bet it was a hate crime.

There aren't too many people on this planet NASTIER than teenage girls...of whatever color, ethnicity or background.

Probably no dads around either. Surprise, surprise.

Hit in the face with a brick? This is no hate crime.

Being forced to look at a confederate flag while being hazed as part of a frat initiation, now THATS a hate crime.

I’ll send my old alma mater some money if they promise to pay for some serious weapons and have people who are willing to use them.

Interestingly, when I went there in the 60’s, there was relatively little vicious assault crimes against students at Temple, unless you got off Broadway by a few blocks. Then you were a targetted robbery victim (my teammate got mugged. Never got a chance to use his fencing weapons on them. John, you should have had a sabre in your hand).

Today it’s open hunting season on whites in particular, and students in general.

And Mayor Nutter the Nuts says “It’s Bush’s fault”.

Every “suspect” is black and every victim is white. So, NOT a hate crime.

I believe Temple U has one of the largest police forces in Pennsylvania. The natives are getting restless because the campus is starting to expand.

targeted robbery victim

You are correct about the viciousness of todays crimes.. It used to be that you would get mugged or have your car broken into for some loose change ..

They didn’t “Lash out”, they beat the crap out of a girl.

Nice how the lead paragraph says “bruised and bloodied,” when the injuries are a fractured jaw and displaced teeth, requiring oral surgery to stabilize.

Wouldn’t want to upset the good citizens with graphic details. Minor injuries, an inconvenience really, you can stop reading now.

It didn’t just leave some girl bruised. She lost a few teeth when she was hit with that brick.

Attacks like these should be considered automatic attempted murder, because the person doing the attack is doing it without regard to consequences to the victim.

It’s not clear why..., oh yes it is.

It’s viewed as payback. The Left catered to people to the extent that anything that could be conceived of, would be justified because of what happened to slaves brought here from Africa.

No amount of trying to level the playing field today matters.

Blacks deserve to be able to pick Whites off one by one.

What a sorry state of affairs the Left has ushered in.

And now, it seems to be institutionalized. The media, the authorities, the police, all seem to be okay with this taking place.

Yes, one of the witnesses said flash mob (was it more than 5?) and knockout game.

You should see some of the comment on the Brit site.

will anyone feel better knowing the “why”?

Probably these feral savage girls were inspired by their brothers and boyfriends who are in youth gangs and do this sort of thing all the time. The girls wanted to prove that girls are just as rough and tough as the boys.

I know what I wrote is absurd, but, if we learn any reasons for this, the reasons are likely to be ridiculous. There was certainly no good reason for black girls to attack unprovoked in this manner.

We are raising uncivilized savages in our cities.

Pretty sad that the more complete story has to come from foreign sources, including media released by the US locale.

I followed a number of [US] links last night, and it was pretty much boilerplate.

“It’s not clear why a group of high school girls lashed out at Temple University students Friday”

Further, it’s not clear why unnamed and unnameable demographics seem emboldened when the press refuses to report crimes from those particular demographics.

Also, it’s unclear why aforesaid unnamed and unnameable demographics seem to commit more violent and racially charged assaults when police forces refuse to enforce the law for fear of rioting, lawsuits, and negative press coverage.

In other news, it’s unclear why raising an entire generation of ethnic minorities with the 24/7 slogan that they’re “oppressed” and that daily atrocities are being committed against them by a racist system seems to result in lower respect for law among these demographics, increased criminality, lower drive to assimilate and succeed, and soaring rates of racially biased assaults perpetuated by the continually propagandized and inflamed demographics.

Tune in for next weeks report, wondering why it is that a race-grievance industry staffed by immoral and grandstanding idiots seems to go hand-in-hand with increased animosity between demographics. We’ll also have a sideline discussion about the mysterious rise of an entitlement class and why it’s totally unrelated to racist liberal politicians wanting to create a subservient class of professional victims.

Historically, the Negro people endured hardships. But to say that it is payback time, and all that, and that we have to surrender civilization and civilized behavior to feral behavior, because of slavery and Jim Crow, just doesn’t cut it with me. Or the vast majority of other Americans.

So, we’re at a point at which nothing we have done is enough. We ended slavery and segregation, imposed affirmative action, created numerous social programs to help the downtrodden, but, none of that matters. Since feral youth don’t learn any of their history in school, and have poor impulse control, we are supposed to give in to whatever they do to the rest of us. Does any of this make sense?

How long is a guy like Putin going to stand up under such an assault?

“I’ve heard Temple is in a dangerous (i.e., black) part of Philly.”

Presumably black, most certainly the ghetto. Of course a lot of great schools are right smack dab in the middle of the ghetto, although i don’t know why that is.

My brother went to the University of Chicago, back in the bad old 70s. On the first day all the freshman were given police whistles and told to blow them if there was any sign of trouble, or if they heard another student blowing a whistle.

I think he did OK in Chi-town, but he and my dad were mugged multiple times in NYC.

There is no need to guess about the race of the parties involved. this surveillance video -- in color shows group of seven older (15 - 17) black teens, five of whom who have been charged with the crime.

And, yes, the two victims were white ...

The great schools came first, the ghettos came later. In the case of Temple, that section of North Philadelphia was central and eastern European -- German, Polish, Lithuanian -- and then after World War II, the blacks migrated from the South. The neighborhood changed.

Because of the need/desire for student apartments and temporary dwellings. When the student population is very transient and the residential owners are absentee, the properties get run down and the streets fill with trash and beer bottles... so property values start sliding lower and lower, until it's easier for low-incomes to move in. And when the white college kids are boozing and feeling invincible and taking crazy chances, away from their sheltered environments for the first time, they are easy pickin's.

Some of the schools are on the border, in a good section known as Center City. U Penn is smack in the middle of Center City. Drexel is also in there. But, I’m told (by a son who’s lived there) that the border between the ok and the not-ok parts is unusually sharp, not gradual.

Yep, you go one street too far and you are in big trouble.

But it’s not just in Philly, I’ve seen the exact same sort of situation in Buffalo, NY, Alexandria, VA and even in Lancaster, PA.

In the latter case, what used to be very quiet & safe areas of the city proper are now overrun and quite scary — mostly due to a large shelter set up for the homeless (i.e.: alcoholics, drug addicts and/or those released from institutions who do not take their medications)

Yikes, Look at all this awful un-PC profiling. There is no need to focus on the scholastic-ness of the perpetrators like this, it puts a bad meme on high schools. Also, a despicable reference to gender profiling, just because they are girls. Awful reference to groups, as if groups are to blame.

How far have we gone!

It's pretty telling we are forced to foreign newspapers to get pictures of the thugs.

It's also interesting the thugs got into the neighborhood on "public transportation". That means we also get to facilitate and subsidize them getting there to commit their crimes.

Do you want to know why so many malls end up deserted and closed, even in "good" suburban areas? Just look up when "public transportation" hooked up the inner city to the mall area and you will discover the "when" and the "why" things went downhill fast. Nobody feels safe shopping or visiting with feral thugs running around and preying on the innocent like the predators they are.

No decent person is safe when these savages get into the area.

I grew up in Newtown Square in the 60s and 70s. My Dad grew up in poverty in West Philly during the 20s and 30s. He told me that when he was growing up, he felt safe walking the city streets at night. Consider that he was nine when the depression began. Everyone was poor, and there were few gun laws, yet crime was minimal. Wait, don’t liberals claim that guns and poverty lead to crime? I would not head north on Broad Street on foot tonight if you paid me.
