9 Blacks attack white woman – don’t ya just love tolerance?

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1936792/posPosted on 12/08/2007 5:46:05 PM PST by freespirited

BALTIMORE – A white woman beaten by a group of black students on a bus has prompted a hate-crime investigation, attempts by transit officials to reassure riders of the safety of the system, and radio talk-show chatter over comparisons with the Jena Six case.

The uproar prompted two leading black politicians to issue statements decrying the attack.

Sarah Kreager, 26, suffered broken facial bones and other injuries after she was punched, kicked and dragged off the bus Tuesday afternoon. Kreager’s companion, Troy Ellis, was also attacked, but not beaten as severely. Kreager has an unlisted phone number and attempts to reach her Friday were unsuccessful.

MTA police said evidence has not been found to support claims by the students’ parents that the children were provoked.

“We are at this point investigating it as a hate crime,” MTA spokeswoman Jawauna Greene said.

The attack immediately drew comparisons on talk radio and Internet blogs to the Jena, La. case in which a white student was attacked by a group of black students, leading to demontrations by black activists who alleged local authorities were prosecuting blacks more harshly than whites. Many callers and web site posters questioned what they considered a lack of outrage over the latest attacks.

But Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon and Rep. Elijah Cummings, both black, issued statements condemning the attack.

“The physical assault of any human being, regardless of motivation, is conduct that is unacceptable. As police continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding this terrible crime, we must rise together as a community to take a stand against violence toward any of our neighbors,” Cummings said in statement issued Friday.

Dixon said after the attack that she was extremely concerned about the beating, which she described as “deplorable.”

“I will not tolerate intimidation or violence anywhere in our city,” the mayor said. “I have offered the MTA whatever assistance they need to investigate this incident and to do our part to ensure the public transportation system is safe for everyone.”

MTA Northern District Capt. David Marzola said the middle school students, three females and six males 14 to 15 years old, are also accused of menacing an elderly white passenger and assaulting the bus operator, a black male who defended his passenger.

“He probably saved this gentleman’s life,” Marzola said.

The driver was not identified because he is considered a witness to a crime, the MTA said.

Video from a surveillance camera on the bus is also being analyzed as part of the investigation, the MTA said.

The students, who ride the bus to Robert Poole Middle School, have been released into the custody of their parents, Greene said.

Col. John Gavrilis, deputy chief of the MTA Police, said MTA Police have stationed an officer on the line since Tuesday and the city school police force has assigned extra officers to the Hampden school.

Greene said the nine students have had their bus privileges revoked.

“Riding the bus is a privilege,” she said. “Public safety is our primary concern.”

MTA officials noted the system is safe with a total of 381 crimes this year on the transit system, which carries 250,000 riders a day, with property crimes accounting for the vast majority.

However, the attack was the latest in a string of high-profile crimes to have taken place on or near MTA facilities.

Nicole Edwards, 17, was fatally stabbed near a Baltimore light rail station in November, 2006, during an armed robbery of Edwards and her brother. Lataye S. King, 17, was sentenced to 25 years in prison Thursday in the case, and a 15-year-old co-defendant is to be sentenced in February for robbery conspiracy and aggravated assault.

In October, a twice-convicted rapist was accused of attacking a woman at a light rail station in Linthicum. And an MTA officer shot and killed a robbery suspect late last year at a Reisterstown Metro station after police said he pulled a gun.

Not that I believe that such provocation occurred.

“Attack of white woman by 9 black kids a possible hate crime”

Not possible [sarc]

Maybe she “looked funny” at them and shouldn’t have or didn’t “look funny” at them and should have. I would wager the real reason for her savage beating is either this or something equally ridiculous.

They will probably drop the hate crime charges if local authorities in Baltimore have anything to do with it. The mass transit in Baltimore is a cess pool.

Evenn if she did, it does not justify a physical attack upon a woman, or even a man.

We saw this on TV last night. The poor woman had to be taken to shock-trauma. They showed a phot of her face, and the reporter said her face will never be the same again. This is not the first time vicious little thugs from this middle school have caused horrible damage to someone.

Unfortunately (sarc) for the parents, there is surveillance video from the bus. Police say there is no evidence of provocation. Also that initially the kids made NO claims of provocation.

Sounds like the parents came up with it after the fact to defend their little darlings.

A 26-year old woman “spitting” at a gang of teenagers (mostly boys) and using the “N” word in the presence of an African-American bus driver? Doesn’t sound likely.

Yes, it was a “hate crime” committed by the white lady. She smashed all of their fists and feet with her lips and eye sockets. I’m sure she attacked them all with her face and hurt their knuckles.

If the authorities had not been afraid that it would deter whites from riding the buses, they would have done nothing. And they still might do nothing, other than talk.

…..well they’ve certainly reached a critical mass in Baltimore City….majority black population, black mayor, black city council, black school board, black state’s attorney ect….that’s why nothing much will happen to these kids….

“Possible”?!!! Ya think?! If this were 9 white men on a black woman this would not be a question. Jessie and Al Sharpton would be ALL OVER THE AIR blaming the white man for oppression, and CO2 and hillary clinton…all things evil.It was a hate crime, pure and simple. There is nothing that woman did to justify what was done to her. NOTHING.

Ugly situation. This takes me back a lot of years. I endured threats from groups of girls in the early 70’s, long before diversity became so “correct”. Even in those days, school officials were reluctant to assert authority over thuggish young people who relied on strength in numbers to threaten caucasian kids. It ranged from threats on the playing field to taunts, intimidation in the classroom, and sawed off shotguns in school. Girls with whom I sang in choir, and with whom I thought I was on good terms, would gang up mercilessly when the opportunity arose to intimidate individuals. It makes me angry all these years later . . . it was just plain wrong, and the administrators were so overcome with “correctness” that they permitted ongoing injustice to continue.In some areas, little has changed, or certainly not for the better. Fortunately, in other communities, the situation has improved greatly. In our upper-middle class community, there are a great many inter-racial marriages and families. Our church is a pleasant mix of racial backgrounds, and people seem to have genuinely transcended many of the differences of the past. If all our communities could achieve this, America would indeed benefit greatly from its diversity. These hate-filled episodes are a sad reminder of the lowest behavior among us, whichever group initiates it.

Speaking of critical mass – in Charlotte, NC the sherrif resigned and the local Democrats had to ‘elect’ a new one. Instead of picking the current Deputy Sherrif who has been running the jail for years they chose a guy who ‘resigned’ from the police force right before the fired him for falsifying work records and who filed bankruptcy for 375k.

BTW the jail has a budget of over 100 billion and now it is going to be run by a guy who can’t balance his own check book. Oh yes, he was also charged with 3 speeding tickets in the last 6 months (2 have already been dismissed and you know the other one will be too) and he had sexual harassment or assault problems when he was a policeman.

However – he had one characteristic the local Democrats wanted. Guess what it was.

The tragedy is that they don’t walk… Because of the race-baiting poverty pimps and certain well publicized incident like that in Jena, La, they THINK they can do this kind of stuff and uncle Al will get them off. Chances are they’re looking at hard time, and they’ll just see it as more evidence of an inherently racist system.

Why is it that as more time goes by since slavery and Jim Crow the racial problems seem to be getting WORSE and not BETTER???

This same garbage happened just about Halloween in Long Beach, California. Several blacks beat a white girl who was out trick or treating. One of the little animals used a skateboard on her face. Broke 18 bones in the girl’s face. Then there was the white couple in Tennessee. After she was raped they were murdered. Where’s the outrage.

Whenever there is an attack, all the the attackers have to do is lie and say the victim used the N word and a lot of people will immediately consider the attack justified or at least understandable–that happened in the case of Reginald Denny during the Rodney King riots, and later in the case of the Todd Co., KY, man who was murdered for having a Confederate flag on his pickup truck (Michael Westerman?).There was something on Fox News this morning about 4 girls attacking a man on a subway (must have been in NYC) after he accidentally stepped on someone’s foot–the girls all appeared to be black, but it wasn’t clear what race their target was (maybe black or Hispanic, possibly Middle Eastern…anyone probably not non-Hispanic white).

Nicole Edwards, 17, was fatally stabbed near a Baltimore light rail station in November, 2006, during an armed robbery of Edwards and her brother. Lataye S. King, 17, was sentenced to 25 years in prison Thursday in the case, and a 15-year-old co-defendant is to be sentenced in February for robbery conspiracy and aggravated assault. Only 25 years and perp walks free, meanwhile a young lady lies dead, what’s wrong with this picture? Even at 42 that’s a relatively young age to still enjoy life after taking someone elses.
