Knock-out killer charged with misdemeanor
DailyKenn ^ | 7/31/14

Posted on 07/31/2014 10:50:58 PM PDT by grandpa jones

A grieving Bronx family is stunned that the teen accused of sucker-punching their father and husband is being charged with a misdemeanor that could result in the suspect doing less than a year in jail.

Ildefonso Romero Jr. died days after a teenage boy allegedly sucker-punched him outside his home on Thieriot Avenue in Soundview on June 21. Witnesses said Romero had been protecting a girl from local teens who were apparently causing trouble in the street, and one of the teens punched Romero.

Romero fell and hit his head on the curb, and his son found him unconscious on the ground.

To say it's open season on white people is no exaggeration.

A black teen can kill you and do less than a year in jail.

The coarse reality is perplexing a Bronx family whose husband and father was killed by a black teen 'playing' the knock-out game.

Ildefonso Romero Jr. was killed by a single punch while attempting to rescue a girl from a mob of black thugs. - See more at: http://dailykenn.blogspot.com/2014/07/knock-out-killer-charged-with.html#sthash.FeFY6LWP.dpuf

The victim seems to have a Hispanic name; they are displacing blacks in all walks of life, and will eventually encounter them as infrequently as most whites.

The good news is that the kid will be out in a year and the victim’s relatives can hunt him down and kill him. I wouldn’t vote to convict. When the system breaks the compact, what else is there to do?

Why haven’t we taken steps to make sure these awful hate crimes never happen again?

Where the Hell is Diane Frankenstein on this?

Where the Hell is Babs Boxer on this?

Where is Sheila “Garage Nose” Jackson Lee on this?

Where the Hell are all of the usual suspect bloated gasbags on this?

Why are these hate mongers being allowed to terrorize innocent people?

“My experience says that your explanation is the best justice there is.”

I disagree. Our system was designed to prevent vendetta by requiring the state to assume the awful burden of execution.

It wasn’t perfect, of course, but it worked pretty well.

I learned as a boy in 1970 that blacks were prone to sucker punch

Never forget

Things get hostile I don’t let them get close

Likewise....most folks who talk a lot like they are gonna fight don’t really want to fight but if they are quiet and clenched fists walking purposely straight at you then u better get ready

But a black guy talking himself up with his buddies when he’s confronting you is trying to geek them up into joining in

So listen up kids....

A white boy fights back hard and fast it scares them like a pickup with gun rack and redneck bumper stickers

Most black guys think....rightfully.... that younger white guys are soft

Its a different world than when I was a boy....black guys are a lot bigger

Used to be on average they were no bigger than average white boy

I guess one day squatty Mexicans will be over six foot too

Then again, a white Hispanic can shoot an unarmed, tea drinkin, skittle eatin black kid and skate.

/s

Truly, this knockout thuggery should be charged the same way a bar fight, with tragic results is.

In fact, it should be charged higher and harder as there is no synchronous interaction.

Just ferals hunting innocent people, who have no idea what may befall them and are just as defenseless as being gunned down in a drive by shooting that has no natural enemy and no reason to wantonly attack the unsuspecting.

Just as much manslaughter but, in my mind, murder.

all the people you mentioned are pretending that the ‘knockout game’ (now being “played” with baseball bats) doesn’t exist, and is a figment and lie of the white man’s imagination. The “players” are the equivalent of Putin’s little green men in more ways than one.

Agreed, much worse.

The only way it is going to get fixed, is extreme vigilance.

when these judges are faced with the fruits of their actions then things will change... the outrage of the people take out their anger on not only the perps, but the treasonous judges who, and make no mistake about it a blatant usurpation of the Constitution, that is to say, attempting to overthrow the Republic, by fostering a willful disregard for the law.

But a white thug with a Jewish-sounding name can kill a black child and spend no time in jail. How is that justice?

I think they’re Eye-Talians, if I had to take a guess.

White guys life ain’t worth a 2 cents.

The victim’s family are probably law abiding folks, so the system is going to screw them. If they want the thug to pay for his crime, they’ll have to go outside of the system.

“Not if the person he attacks has a gun and puts two in him.”

In many of these incidents the victim being armed wouldn’t have made a difference. If the victim is knocked out or killed as a result of the first blow, the concealed or open carry firearm is of no use. In this particular I case the victim was struck, he fell down, his head hit the curb and he was unconscious. A gun could have only provided some protection if he saw his attacker coming at him. If he was hit from behind, the gun offered no help.

Consider today a middle aged white male walking alone to his car in a parking lot. Three teens approach and surround him. If he waits to be physically attacked before pulling out a concealed firearm, he may be rendered unconscious by the first blow and that blow will likely come from behind. If he pulls out his gun because he feels threatened, and the teens back off, the gun serves its purpose. If he pulls out his gun and kills one of the teens because he sees a movement and perceives he is in imminent danger, he will be tried and convicted. Even the best defense attorney in the country won’t be able to sell a jury a story of self defense if the two surviving youth testify it was a cold blooded unprovoked racist attack. One can only imagine the media firestorm.

Given all of the guns being carried by average citizens for protection, the increasing number of attacks by “teens”, and the desire of some politicians to stoke the fires of racial hatred, it is only a matter of time before we see this type of spectacle play out.

Most of what you wrote is “past tense”. Back in the good ole days, the system DID work but unfortunately that is no longer the case and liberals have turned our entire system of laws around and ignore the obvious. Guess I have to support the “an eye for an eye” resolution and shoot the bastard!

It doesnt matter how many guns you carry if they knock you out with a sucker punch. However if the knockout fails they might do you some good.

“I learned as a boy in 1970 that blacks were prone to sucker punch”

And if there are multiple of them and one of you they are all going to jump in when the first punch is thrown.

“Likewise....most folks who talk a lot like they are gonna fight don’t really want to fight but if they are quiet and clenched fists walking purposely straight at you then u better get ready”

Right. Lots of bluster and posturing is typical even in non-serious situations. The talk is for show and doesnt mean much.

“Most black guys think....rightfully.... that younger white guys are soft.”
Most white guys try to defuse the situation rather than fight. Its a cultural thing. Black guys like to amp things up and fight more frequently. In a fight experience matters.

If the KKK was still killing black people, I bet they would get more than a misdemeanor!

No extra penalty for committing a race hate crime?

No extra penalty for committing a cowardly sneak attack?

If I was in a group that comprised about 10% of the population, I would be stirring up a race war.

Exactly. The key is Intent.

What is the intent of those "playing" the knockout game?

Who/What are their targets of opportunity and what do they want to do to them?

Whatever the result, it sounds premeditated to me, in the first degree.

And, if one believes in the concept as we are told to, it's also clearly a racially motivate hate crime.

Well that scenario is certainly plausible. That said, you are still alive which is a good deal better than to have died at the hands of black thugs. The other thing that decent people need to do is train themselves to be “situationally aware,” and to not go where black on white crime exists. Don’t travel alone except when absolutely necessary, and don’t go to the gas station in the bad neighborhood, or the convenience store, because you are just asking for trouble. And FWIW, the mere “pulling” of your weapon is very likely to sent your would be attackers heading in another direction immediately

Several well-publicized cases of citizens shooting some of these punks would do wonders to deter more attacks. But liberals do their best (or worst if you like) to make sure innocent citizens do not have guns or be able to arm themselves. Hopefully, these assaults by the feral punks will force things to change.

We had a white guy here in Houston pull that crap on an 79 year old black man while filming it on his cell phone.

He’s now claiming insanity.

He should be charged with every possible indictment and removed from society. He should be forced to pay costs for the injuries inflicted on his victim.

As for his insanity plea ? So f’n what ? Who gives a rat’s rear end ? It’s a scam and immaterial.

It’s unfortunate he wasn’t spotted by a concealed carrier, who could have shot his sorry ass and permanently removed him from society. As one talk show host here called it - “permanent rehabilitation.”

The same with the rest of these punks, black or white, or pink with purple polka-dots.
