Victim Speaks After Violent Attack Inside Germantown Restaurant
CBS Philly ^ | 07/02/2012

Posted on 07/08/2012 8:25:46 AM PDT by Kid Shelleen

--snip-- The video shows the 72-year-old male victim, who we are not identifying, enter the store and approach the counter to pick-up his order.

As the victim was waiting at the counter, two males, who police believe may be as young as 14 years old, entered the restaurant and acted as if they were customers.

A short time later, one of the suspects stood next to the victim and without warning, threw a blind-sided punch that struck the elderly man in the face. The victim immediately fell to the ground

Race of perps in article, how unusual. Perhaps it’s only because the victim was brown (assumed because he’s from Barbados).

"I cannot tell you, honest to God. If I tell you I may get charged for that," [the victim] said. "I believe that is the height of ignorance."

I wonder what prompted that remark.

While white liberals continue to make excuses for these savages, they continue to rob, rape and murder theur own people.

What excuse this time? Slavery? Disenfranchisement? Poverty?

Perhaps the truth would be refreshing. Laziness, arrogance, greed, sloth, ignorance, racism, jealousy, bigotry, and downright hatred of people who do better than they do.

There are no excuses worthy of these inner city jackals who will kill their own kind. Messy Jackson is to busy lining his own pockets, Al Charleton is to busy beating the race drum to care, and the liberals are to much into pandering for votes. There are good people dying, children being murdered by savages. The fault is in the black communities and nowhere else.

I noticed at around 42 seconds into the video the “so-called” victim was wearing a Yankees cap, in Philly?!? How dare he! He should’ve known better. Maybe these thugs were hard-core Phillies fans who felt dissed./sarc. Seriously, I grew up near Spring Vly, NY. it was always largely Black, around the early 70’s a large influx of Carribean Blacks moved in. Once in a while there are problems between Blacks and Whites, usually nothing more than a fist fight at the local high school, but I have seen and heard of more animosity between these groups of Blacks than across racial lines.

Oh for God's sake, it is black on black crime. That doesn't count. The only crime that is worthy of outrage is white on black crime.
These were just two young princes of the urban ghetto showing off their manhood.

Not one armed citizen in the whole bunch, nor was the owner of the facility armed.

“Willfully vulnerable” means my Give-A-Damn program will not be clicked on. They are supposed to be Americans, after all.

Sheeple deserve the predation visited upon them by the black Urban Ferals.

Since the left is now considering all kinds of ways to cutback on unnecessary expenses, a Section-8 Housing or prison cleanup action might be promoted. Heck, we're already killing unwanted or deformed babies the womb, and considering Death Panels for seniors "no longer able to contribute to society". If you have a segment of the society that is a detriment, why tolerate them anymore? Why continue allowing them to "Not contribute to the greater good"?

C'mon Zero! Where's the retoric? What's your solution?
I know! Side with the UN and take away EVERYBODIES GUNS!

True. This was feral lo-IQ yoofs attacking an elderly black man. If same had been done to a older white man the reporting would have been deceptive because the media loves to cover up black on white crime

So what excuses are we offered for 14 year olds doing something like this? They’re not victims of anything, they’re violent criminals.

The libs have no choice but to defend the blacks no matter the atrocities they perpetrate on themselves or others. They simply cannot afford to alienate them because if they loose the black vote there is no way they ever get elected to national office again.

Same with the Hispanics.

You forgot "Victim-hood", you see a 'victim' has no responsibility of their situation - it's always someone else's fault. They believe that because of the color of their skin, they are all 'victims' - and hence are not responsibile for their lot in life. It's the fault of "Whitie", who bears all responsibility - and now owes them for the perceived "victimization" they have suffered.

That is so much easier than standing up and taking responsibiltiy for their actions. Like, how is it that a US population of only 14% can represent the dominant race incarcerated, on welfare, dropping out of school, are illiterate, on welfare, with ~75% unwed mothers, instigators of violent crime and cause of most drug related activity.

The kids are merely acting out what they have seen their adult models do. This is not something that occurs naturally to a 14 yr old, this required "coaching", and probably some "rehersals".

Whitey has "Little Leage" and the "Boy Scouts" and other programs for teaching kids acceptable practices, how to interact in society. I guess the Black Kids have other groups, such as ex-Cons, "Mommy's Boyfriend", the local Gangsta leadership and the "Black Panthers" to instill their values in their children.

What you say about victim hood is correct. They feel no responsibility for the fact that they have not graduated from highschool or attempted to go to college or worked hard to improve their lives. The same can be said of young whites who have been taught that they are poor because the rich have held them down. My husband has been in discussion with some younger liberal relatives and like many blacks they think it is the governments duty to save them. I have no time to waste on them.

If that was Philly City Limits, there’s a whole different set of so-called CCW Laws in that hellhole, quite apart from Pa’s. If you get caught carrying/defending, you’re history. I won’t go near/in/thru that lib-dem sh*thole ever again. How they get away with it vs state law, is beyond me. The many articles I’ve read about what’s happened to those defending themselves is way past just scary.

This is nothing unusual for Philadelphia or even Montgomery County. My nephew had the same thing happen to him when he stepped out of his car to get gas. No one did a thing to help.

Between inner city thugs, Planned Parenthood and your friendly meighborhood narcotics vendor, Blacks will reduce their numbers in a manner only dreamed of by the Klan and various White supremacists.
Kill off your people, Black America.
Don’t you feel so proud of what your adherence to liberalism and race identity has done for you?

Looks like I was wrong in my previous post; I found comment #4 in an FR search:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2849788/posts

after turning-up lots of Philly prosecution stories (for open carry) on a Google search:

https://www.google.com/search?client=opera&rls=en&q=philly+prosecutes+concealed+carry&sourceid=opera&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&channel=suggest#q=philly+prosecutes+concealed+carry&hl=en&client=opera&rls=en&channel=suggest&prmd=imvnsfd&ei=XcP5T92IN-L00gGZt8iNBw&start=0&sa=N&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&fp=3dc057bc79fded2c&biw=1737&bih=969

A friend just reminded me that Philly used to have a very zealous anti-gun mayor, DA & prosecutors, but that’s changed over the past few years. He says that state law trumps Philly’s ordinances/laws, but they can still cause legal/financial problems if you’re arrested for a simple ‘perceived’ firearms infraction by LEOs.

That error corrected, I still won’t go there.

“Blind-sided punch” and “sucker punch” are euphemisms. The people that are infamous for throwing them have a defining characteristic.

"I have a feeling lots of people are afraid to respond with lethal force after the Zimmerman scam. "

My defense...

I'm 68 years old and any attack on me could be fatal. Consequently, If you attack me I will kill you for attempted murder.

Leave old men alone...every one of them that I know are carrying guns in their pockets and many have additional guns (all legal) in their vehicles.

I carry a Ruger 380 LCP in my pocket and a Ruger P89, 30-shot, 9mm in my truck.

Comment at the end of the article; at first, I thought it was satire/sarcasm. Instead, it’s just a Liberal White Guilt Obama Voter.


Lady Freedom 2 hours ago
Well, I see the racists and hate mongers are here in force today spewing the venom they’ve been told to repeat by Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. I think most tolerant people would agree that the two children were only acting out a symbolic reparation in solidarity with the plight of all oppressed peoples throughout the earth.

Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh have been inciting their followers for years to violence against minority communities. Those communities now react with fear and anger and this is the predictable result.

The racists and white supremacists posting here need to crawl back to their bibles and their AM radio and leave the rest of us alone.
