Skip to comments.Mayor & Police: Delmar Beating Not A Hate Crime
Posted on 04/25/2012 8:35:14 AM PDT by chessplayer
(MOBILE, Ala.) - It started with a game of basketball. Kids in the Delmar Drive neighborhood play almost every night, and Saturday their ball found its way into a yard down the street where Matthew Owens was staying.
Neighbors say Owens confronted the kids as they chased their ball.
"We said we're sorry," says David Dinkins, one of the kids playing. "He said 'get the F out of the yard!'"
Dinkins says that's when Owens started spewing racial slurs and pulled out two knives.
"It was like kitchen knives," Dinkins says. "They were long."

Black on white crime. Nothing to see here. Move along.
They must have a special flow chart like the “Not My Problem” one to help them deal with this, without specifically saying “Thou Shalt Not Charge a Black Person With a Race/Hate Crime”.
Don’t you love how they can pick and choose hate crimes?
Black racists know that all they have to say is that whitey said n@@@@r and to police, bad words justify black racist violence. Whitey made the racist mob hate and lynch ‘im.
One thing is certain. Both the press and the government are unreliable when it come to crimes involving race.
The subtext of these stories, which is almost never challenged, is that if someone uses (or is believed to have used) the only truly taboo word in the language, any level of violence against him and those around him is thereby justified.
I wonder when this notion worked its way into the collective mind?
It’s just a word. Why is its use considered worse than violence in response? Why don’t those offended by a word retaliate with words rather than violence?
Remember Omar Thornton?
So 20 people beat the crap out of a guy, one supposedly says it is “Justice for St. Skittles”, and that doesn’t qualify?
Frankly,.I think the entire concept.of “hate crime” is bogus, but if you’re gonna have it, this qualifies.
Whites need to start taking a page from the black mans protest book. If they beat one of ours then we gather in mass and start screaming and demanding justice. If they treat us with violence then we fight back with more violence. They are getting away with murder and it’s only going to get worse because nobody, including us, does anything about it or will do anything about it.
They want war it’s time we give them one including their so called leaders. When the war starts it is our duty to fight back and take out the leaders first.
Thou Shalt Not Charge a Black Person With a Race/Hate Crime.
or hispanics or muslims or anyone in the human race who is not whitey (even if you have 1/2 hispanic you’re a whitey).
then there’s really no such thing, is there?
More generally than just that one word,
any sort of “dissing” of a young black man
is justification for at least a beatdown, if not a homicide.
That word is just the pinnacle of “dissing”.
“Whites need to start taking a page from the black mans protest book.”
Ok, well, you try to organize a “White people protest” and see how many show up. White people can’t be bothered to stand up for themselves, for fear of being called racist. If you try this, you’ll be socially lynched by the very people you want to help.
Just keep pissin off white people, sooner or later you will drive virtually all of them away while your cities can continue to rot and they will vote against you
“Frankly,.I think the entire concept of hate crime is bogus, but if youre gonna have it, this qualifies.”
The REASON for the crime really doesn’t matter except perhaps in establishing motive. However, in and of itself, it definetely should NOT amplify the crime/punishment.
“Hate Crime” is just another form of institutional racism directed against whites.
“spewing racial slurs “
NO greater crime on earth exists if you’re not “ a person of color”.
“I have personal insight into this incident.
It had nothing to do with kids playing basketball or racial slurs.
Several neighborhood kids were going into his neighbors yard and carports who were away.
He told the kids to put the items back and get off the neighbors property.
The kids left.
Several minutes later, numerous cars pulled up and the occupants set upon Mr. Owens.
The group consisted of adult male and females and children.
As they were leaving they were overheard sayin This is for Travon
The press has their stories wrong and need to correct it and stop trying to paint in a way to allow for justification of attempted murder against Mr.Owens.
African-Americans are now a protected species. Much like gray wolves. they can kill and maim each other. They can kill an maim other species, including other protected species. But they cannot be harmed or insulted by a non protected species. For example White folks.
Not till I looked it up. Horrible story, complete with subtext that the killings would have been “sorta” justified if the racism of the victims could be proven.
I am about as anti-racist as it is possible to be. However, racism is not the worst crime in the world. In fact, it isn’t a crime at all. It’s stupid and evil, but the belief system or attitude isn’t criminal.
And there are certainly much worse crimes. Over 100M people were murdered in the last century by people who were, at least in theory, anti-racist, and whose ideology is still respectable in much polite company.
So the kid who started this is giving his side of the story.
And I should believe him?
There is no excuse for this.
And if these people aren’t charged with lynching, there will be problems.
Mayor and police chief covering for their own people. Mobile is a hopeless city going down the tubes in an increasingly fast spiral.
Thank God we got out of there when we did.
There is the General Rule of Hate Crime and the Special Rule of Hate Crime.
I’ll give you the Special Rule first:
A Hate Crime can only be committed by a member of a Bad Race against the member of a Good Race. The member of a Good Race can never be charged with a Hate Crime, under any circumstances.
And now, here’s the General Rule:
A Hate Crime can only be committed by a member of a More Preferred Group against the member of a Less Preferred Group. The member of a More Preferred Group can never be changed with a Hate Crime against a member of a Less Preferred Group.
I hope these two Rules clear things up for everyone on the subject of Hate Crimes.
I don't believe this for a minute. TWO knives, not just A knife but TWO of them. Who in the he** carries two big kitchen knives around on them and how do you hide them and keep from stabbing yourself with them?
This is a BS story they cooked up after beating this guy half to death in order to convince everyone he is a racist cracker and needed to be killed.
The kids ran off, but an angry group returned. Police haven't confirmed how many were in the crowd, but they beat Owens so bad he landed in the hospital.
Hmmmm, I wonder why Owens didn't try to defend himself with his two long knives? Did the police/medics/hospital find the knives on his body? Maybe one of the mob saw that they were finely crafted kitchen knives and took them home as a valuable addition to their kitchen?
Whisenhunt says police are often called to the house where Owens stays, and recently arrived with an ambulance.
I guess the reporter didn't feel it was necessary to verify this statement with the police and the ambulance company.
That gets trotted out all the time...like with Reginald Denny and Michael Westerman.
It's like Aesop's fable of the boy who cried wolf.
