A Driver's Bloody Run-in With an Angry Detroit
NY Times ^ | April 21, 2014 | Monica Davey

Posted on 04/24/2014 5:31:52 PM PDT by Bon of Babble

As Mr. Utash drove his pickup truck on the city’s East Side, a 10-year-old boy suddenly stepped into the street, the authorities said, and Mr. Utash’s truck hit him. Mr. Utash pulled over to check on the boy, whose leg was broken and whose mouth was bleeding. Soon after, a crowd descended on Mr. Utash, 54, beating and kicking him until he lost consciousness and was left in critical condition.

KEYWORDS:
CNN, MSNBC, the rest of the alphabet networks and national newspapers are all over this case, right??

//sarc

Didn't see it reported in the West Coast Press.

"Mr. Utash’s relatives have been holding vigil at the hospital, where, they said, he is conscious but still struggling and uncertain of what happened. Mr. Utash had no health insurance, but money has poured in from across the world, they said, after family members issued an online plea for help. As of Monday, they had raised $180,912. But his condition, they said, remained bleak: 'He is still unable to distinguish reality from his delusions,' an online family posting said over the weekend. 'It is hard to explain in words what he is talking about. And very sad for us to see him this way.'

Fortunately it appears that Kim Worthy is a good prosecutor.

BTW still nothing more on the Ypsilanti hate crime attack on the lesbian after 24 days.

It ain't against the law of the jungle to beat a white man to death.

Killing someone of another tribe (i.e. murder) is a Judeo-Christian concept. It most certainly isn't an African tribal concept.

“”a judge found probable cause to send to trial four of the men accused of assault with intent to murder and assault with intent to do great bodily harm. A fifth person, who is 16, was also charged with ethnic intimidation — the only overt nod to a racial element to the case,””

ETHNIC INTIMIDATION? That’s a new one. Anything except labeling it a HATE CRIME.

WRONG.

UNJUSTLY killing (or beating the crap out of) someone of "another tribe" has NOTHING to do with Judeo-Christian anything.

The place must be a pit-—it’s becoming Johannesburg.

The lady who offered assistance to the victim has had 2 children murdered.

No. I was trying to be truthful...not sarcastic.

These young men have rejected the Judeo/Christian culture of America for that tribal, feral culture of Africa.

That is their option.

That culture doesn't seem to frown on killing someone of a different tribe...and, in America, it certainly doesn't frown on killing Whitey.

In fact, that culture admires and honors those who attack Whitey.

I am not passing judgment on that culture...I am just describing its nature.

A sad business. He got out of the car to help the little boy. It wasn’t his fault that the boy ran out in front of the car, but he didn’t want to just leave the kid lying there.

And he paid a heavy price for his decency and kindness.

I used to drive into Manhattan through a couple of questionable neighborhoods, and one of the things I never would do would be to stop the car, let alone get out of it, among a bunch of black youths.

I would be really conflicted if something like this happened, to just drive away and leave the kid there, even though there were plenty of people who saw it and could help him, and I could stop a few blocks away to borrow a store phone and call the police.

Things are certainly not getting better under Obama and Holder.

Something was lost in translation. I meant to say that murder (even killing someone of another tribe) is a crime in Judeo/Christian culture.

Beating the crap out of a person of a different color has everything to do with Judeo/Christian culture...it (the act, the crime) exposes the complete rejection of Judeo/Christian culture.

If this happened to me, I would be thinking of driving away and calling police from a safe place, not stick around in a mob and risk getting killed.

I do pass judgement on their socalled “culture”.....cultures are not equal....some cultures exist at a higher plane than others and these attacks prove it beautifully....

*********************************************************************

I do believe the mainstream media is being INTENTIONALLY OBTUSE on this whole thing.

A review of the gas station video shows that “the boy” suddenly darted into the street and into THE SIDE of Mr. Utash’s truck. He hit Utash’s truck (and bounced back about 2 feet); he DID NOT dash in FRONT of Utash’s truck and WAS NOT hit by the front of the truck.

A review of the COMPLETE gas station video shows that small group of boys a few minutes earlier were PRACTICING running into the street as cars approached and immediately back to the sidewalk. I think it likely they were intent on playing the ghetto liability lawsuit lottery.

The mainstream media (and possibly also the local authorities) are covering this all up. Why, I don’t know for sure.

And the boy’s leg was NOT broken.

I will the leave the judgment of their culture to God. I don't want to invite anger into my heart about their crimes.

Yes, they are criminals of the lowest order...and if I were an officer of the law or merely a member of the jury, it would be my job to bring them to justice and/or pass sentence on them, respectively.

But as to the judgment of their souls...that is most certainly above my existential pay grade.

I ask God for forgiveness of my sins. And I sometimes pray that he will awaken these stupid young (and old) people who are so consumed with hate.

I am sure He tries...but to no avail.

Hatred/anger is a powerful force. And man has free will, of course.

A Driver's Bloody Run-in With an Angry Detroit

Don't lefties always lecture us that talking about "angry" people of color is a racist stereotype that should be condemned and banned?

I guess that it's OK (in their thinking) for the NY Times to use racist stereotypes, huh...

Your quote: “Killing someone of another tribe (i.e. murder) is a Judeo-Christian concept. It most certainly isn’t an African tribal concept.”

Then why didn’t you just say that in the first place. Sheesh. Good night.

Don’t forget that in their “moral outrage”, the accused also took time to rifle the mans pockets, robbing him as he lay beaten and bloodied in the street...

Yup, and the older boys were coaching him on the one to run into. They waited until they saw a business owned truck coming.

I have no doubt it was on purpose , and said so the first day.
