Video of man beaten, stripped prompting anger on Internet
Baltimore Sun ^

This week, a video was posted online of a seemingly lost and disoriented man being swarmed by a group of young people, then sucker punched, robbed, and stripped naked of his clothing on a downtown Baltimore street. It's not clear where the video was first posted, but it made it to the now typical stops for such shock clips: Worldstarhiphop, LiveLeak, YouTube, Twitter.

What could have been just another tantalizing video turned into something else: outraged viewers say they have tracked down the identity of the man who threw the first punch, and police have connected a victim - who had reported an assault and theft to police but couldn't remember where it occurred - to the incident. Police say an investigation is moving forward.

Local TV news stations started off with this story at the 10pm news which I thought was strange, they usually bury black on white attacks.

"Black on White, where is Jesse and Al?"

Jesse and Al are high fivin' in the back room just like Barack, Eric and gang. Racial animosity and class envy are the strategies at work for the reelection campaign.

Did you watch the video. Glad I have my CCW. I will never be in a position to have someone do that to me.

Was going to ask, color?

But then I remembered there was no point.

Of course they were black, who the Hell else would behave like this ><

I was down in Baltimore about six years ago at a convention, and around 5PM, I thought I would walk on the Skywalk back to my hotel.

As I walked through the areas with stores to get to the Skywalk, I noticed several things. First, what had been bustling during the day with scads of people was now nearly deserted with only a few people scurrying quickly. Secondly, all the busy and prosperous looking shops during the day were closed, and there were bars down.

This was 5PM. I thought the place would be bustling.

I also noticed everyone was walking on the street below. As I opened the door to the Skywalk that went over one of the main streets in Baltimore, there were five young black guys standing in the middle of the Skywalk about halfway across. They were all wearing the cloths over the head with the large, flat brimmed baseball caps (with the brims pressed completely flat) baggy pants, the whole nine yards.

I got it then. Nobody with any knowledge of this area was up here, and you didn’t have to be a genius to figure out why.

I hightailed it out of there.

If the President had a brother (that didn’t live in a hut) he would probably look like this guy.

Yep, no mention on the local news that the perps were black, just that a man was beaten stripped by a group of people.

I live in the outskirts of Cleveland and love to go downtown, however, I must run the risks of the surrounding neighborhoods to get there. Life is a gamble, and to get to downtown Cleveland is one of those gambles.

To bad he wasn’t wearing a hoodie. That’s what it takes to get Al and the President involved.

Years ago I was helping out a Christian woman who had no family and became paryalized. She was in a Rehab center in Baltimore. It was absolutely miserable back then with black hate and violence.

Good move on your part. Your lucky to have gotten away. When I used to go downtown, I would always leave by 4pm before the sun went down.

Whenever I board the subway and I know full well that Freepers don’t like illegals but guess which “group” of people creates havoc on the subways in L.A.? Even the latinos are pissed that blacks act like idiots. Had so many conversations with passengers of their stories with the homeys..

Then what?

Your best best in such a situation is to use it on your family and self.

The repercussions to fighting back are far worse than giving up.

I agree with all of our collective decision- to do nothing but complain about Jessie not helping us.

No doubt ,one day, we will reach him.

I care for the future of our country. Obama and his minons are creating a race war and the thin skined congress is not doing anything about it.

I disagree that the repercussions are far worse when fighting back. I’d ‘fear for my life’ in that situation and would rather be tried by 12.

Is Jessie in Congress?

Al Shaprton?

They know how to help their people better than we do.

When I first got out of school in the mid-80’s, I was a chemist at a company in a predominately black light-industrial area on the southeast side of Baltimore city. I had to drive through the area to get on 95 to get to home in the evenings. I was spit at, called names, screamed at, the amount of blind racist hatred was shocking...

Yep. Know it well. Outback drover’s coat, unlined. About $130 at Cabala’s. You can easily conceal a pistol-grip pump shotgun (like a Mossberg 500) or a collapsible stock CAR 15 variant of which there are many.

Surprise, surprise, surprise.

Pfft. That was a surprise to me. I am from Boston, and comparatively speaking, I wouldn’t have felt that level of threat up here until around midnight.

That was 5:00 PM, and that was what really threw me. That was lax on my part, for certain. Talk about not adjusting to your surroundings.
