Police: Soldier fatally stabbed; may be hate crime
KOMO News ^ | 6 October, 2013 | Staff

Posted on 10/06/2013 8:51:15 AM PDT by Errant

LAKEWOOD, Wash. - A 20-year-old active-duty soldier was stabbed to death in a parking lot at the 12500 block of Pacific Highway Southwest around 2:30 a.m., officials say.

Three soldiers were walking from Joint Base Lewis-McChord along Pacific Highway SW when a group of men in a car drove by and someone inside shouted a racial comment toward the white soldiers, the Lakewood Police Department said.

"One of the soldiers yelled back something about the suspects treating combat soldiers with disrespect," Lt. Chris Lawler said.

The vehicle turned around, and five black males got out of the car and confronted the soldiers, according to reports. As the verbal confrontation ensued, the driver of the vehicle realized the men were actually combat veterans and called his friends off. While the men headed back to their vehicle, one of the suspects appeared to have bumped into the victim, witnesses say.

The soldiers saw their friend fall to the ground as the car sped away. The victim was bleeding profusely from a stab wound and died at the scene.

I’m about to faint that they actually called it a “hate crime”, even if allegedly. existential

So 5 men thought they outnumbered 3 Marines enough to start some crap.

They realized they were in over their heads so they begin to slink off like the Cowards they were, and when the Marine lowered his guard he got stabbed and killed by this yellow bellied black POS.

But it isn’t a hate crime. Come on. These things are happening with more ane more frequency as blacks find that they are immune to hate crime laws and that they have the backing of the White House, the Justice Department and the Courts.

...investigators were exploring whether the killing should be classified as a hate crime. "We are certainly considering it, for sure," Lawler said.

Don't worry, they are only considering calling it a hate crime. Higher-ups will ensure that it is not actually prosecuted as a hate crime as the victim was...well, you know.

When it is this blatant and fatal, I believe that it will be prosecuted as such. THEN forever after cited as PROOF that black on white hate crime is prosecuted. SOP from so many times before.

I’m sure the d.a. will find that the soldiers started the issue and that the stabbing was justified. One of the 3 probably used the “N” word or something. I mean, how else would they find the issue. There’s no such thing as hate when it comes to b on w uh, incidences. Yeah, that’s it. Incidences.

Marines are soldiers, but not all soldiers are Marines. In this case, these soldiers were members of the U.S. Army.

14% of the population. only a portion of that 14% of the population keep all the rest of us on edge and stirred up. They have done it for at least half a century and have been given trillions of dollars in direct benefits and have been favored over more capable people all in the name of equality. It has not worked.

A portion of the 14% are always mouthing off, talking smack, and inciting riot. They are led by their hero in the white hut who does the same thing they do and he makes them more bold by the day. He postures, he struts, he runs his mouth, he can’t be reasoned with, he has a huge chip on his shoulder, he feels inferior and is inferior so he overcompensates for it. He knows he did not earn his place but that it was given to him... typical of the portion of the 14%.

This faction is like the mooslem extremists... there is only one way to deal with them, there is only one language they understand and until that language is spoken they will not quit their assault.

I’m shocked it was characterized as a hate crime. That is a first.

“So 5 men thought they outnumbered 3 Marines enough to start some crap.”

Just a point of clarification...these servicemen would not be “Marines” —they’re Army. The 2nd Infantry Division has at least one Brigade at JBLM.

There is a small but growing group out to start a race war in this country. I'm not sure the extent, but seems large and has tentacles even inside our government.

DHS Official Behind Gun and Ammo Purchasing Calls for White Genocide, Race War

His website (checkout the free download materials): http://waronthehorizon.com/

Then there are the ever growing gangs and the Mexican cartel extending operations into the US.

Yea, our government sucks at protecting its citizens. But then, what would they use as justification for all the funding they're recieving?

Marines are not soldiers, not once was I called a soldier while I was in the USMC. Marines are Marines. I have great respect for the men in the US Army. But just as sailors are not Marines neither are soldiers.

I think bringing back speedy trials and public executions might help stop this senseless violence. This is a heart breaking story, our young soldier deserved much much better. I hope the murders are found and justice is gone.

According to Jackson and/or Sharpton, blacks are incapable of racism. Racism is about power and according to Sharpton and/or Jackson, blacks have now power. Of course we all know this is bullshit.

If you let someone get close enough to stab you, your weapon isn't going to be of much help - except maybe to stop them from getting away with it. Do what you must to maintain a safe distance.

Keep your guard up, stay aware of your surroundings, and never let one of these thugs get close to you - period. I've have personal experience. They are explosive, fast, strong, will out number, and attack when you have your guard down or least expect it.

Correct. The PC definition of racism makes it impossible for a member of a Designated Victim Group to be racist towards a member of a Designated Oppressor Group.

Oddly enough, the most common dictionary definition of racism has a similar effect, though from a different angle.

“a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others.”

I think most black racists hate white people, but don’t really think of their own race as superior, so they wouldn’t technically fit this definition.

The more inclusive definition of racism as antagonism/hostility towards members of other races appears to be gaining ground, but most dictionaries still list it as second or third.

“Marines are not soldiers, not once was I called a soldier while I was in the USMC. Marines are Marines. I have great respect for the men in the US Army. But just as sailors are not Marines neither are soldiers.”

There’s no disrespect meant in what I’m about to say, sir: as a Corpsman during Vietnam, I’m well aware of the Marines’ esprit de corps and its importance - but please, give it a rest. It’s not fitting for the proud tradition you represent.

“Troops” and “soldiers” are just generic terms, and the people who use them should be cut some slack when they use them respectfully for anyone who put themselves in harm’s way. I was as far from being a “soldier” as you can get, but I’m never upset if I’m called one when I’m lumped in with all those who served in uniform. I don’t think you need to get upset either. There’s enough else going on these days - real insults and attacks - where we can can better focus our energies.

Targeting Trayvons is ok

After proper profiling of course to separate the wheat from the chaff

the driver of the vehicle realized the men were actually combat veterans and called his friends off.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Interesting line. WHICH I believe is very true.
I used to make a run from DC-PHILA-NY every night, to ‘swap’ material from a guy making a run from NY-PHILA-NY.

Anway on occasion I would have to go on into NYC and would end up in LI City and meet another guy by an all night cab stand/gas station with a bar right there and it was frequented by mostly Spanish ‘types’. (NOT profiling, but not deaf nor blind).

I would feel ‘uneasy’, sitting on the street near the bar and was always aware of the possibility of a confrontation with me being the only ‘White Bread’ in a newer Ford Van amidst a group of Hispanic revelers.

I mentioned my ‘concern’ to the NY driver @ Philadelphia and he pointed to my VN tags, VFW etal stickers and said “You just sitting in your truck NOT bothering anyone and YOU have a lot more help in that crowd than you can imagine.
Now, get in somebodys face etc and you are on your own”.

Possibly, in the WA case, one or more of the perps were combat Vets ....

Though I really can’t imagine the three Soldiers that were accosted would have made that statement of their being combat vets etc...Ribbons on chest, stickers on cars etc give that message...

I disagree: The argument seems to have escalated verbally for a while. The Marines were obviously outnumbered and in danger. If they had been carrying, the man with the knife should never have been allowed to get anywhere close, and probably would not even have tried.

When the five blacks got out of the car it would have been reasonable for the solders to pull out weapons. They needed to keep them away.

A black thug here did the same walk away then attack on a bar bouncer a while back. Knocked him out, his, head hit the pavement and he is paralyzed for life.

About to faint, yes, but they keep their liberal cred by describing in great detail the attackers clothes. . .but omitting the race of the attackers and the victim.

Have to listen to the video report to find out that important piece of information.
