Second racist attack in recent days.

Post  fshnski on Tue Sep 10, 2013 4:42 pm

Police in New York City on Tuesday were seeking to arrest a black man in his 30s on assault charges, after witnesses reported him smashing in the face of a white male victim and shouting a racial slur as they rode a bus through Harlem.

The suspect, captured on bus videotape and described as 5 foot 11 inches and about 185 pounds, reportedly passed a rider on the M60 bus as it traveled through Harlem. He then shouted the racial slur and punched the victim, a 31-year-old man in the face, The New York Post reported.

The victim suffered a broken nose and eye socket, and was treated at a nearby hospital, The Post said.
The incident was most notable for its racial overtones.

It’s the second such random black-on-white crime in recent days to make city press sit up and take notice. Last Wednesday, a 62-year-old man, Jeffrey Babbitt, was punched and pushed to the ground in Union Square Park. He subsequently fell into a coma. The Post reported that on Monday, he was taken off life support and died.

He was attacked by a 31-year-old black suspect who screamed that he was going to “[expletive] up” the next white person he saw — and then grabbed Mr. Babbitt and slammed him so hard that witnesses say they heard his skull crack, The Post reported.

That's terrible when it happens to anyone, and I don't like Sharpton any more than you do. I remember the Tawana Brawley fiasco very well years ago, and Sharpton should never have been given any legitimacy after that.

Federal authorities charge white ‘knockout’ suspect with hate crime

Post  fshnski on Thu Dec 26, 2013 2:14 pm

Federal authorities said Thursday they have arrested and charged a Texas man in connection with the “knockout game,” accusing him of a hate crime for targeting a black man for a vicious street attack.

Most knockout victims that have appeared in news reports have been white, but the Justice Department said in this instance the victim was a 79-year-old black man, and stepped in with federal charges.

“Suspected crimes of this nature will simply not be tolerated,” said Kenneth Magidson, the U.S. attorney for the southern district of Texas. “Evidence of hate crimes will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted with the assistance of all our partners to the fullest extent of the law.”

The Justice Department said it filed a criminal complaint against 27-year-old Conrad Alvin Barrett on Tuesday and arrested him on Thursday.

According to Justice officials, Mr. Barrett recorded himself on his cellphone attacking the 79-year-old man, laughing and saying “Knockout” as he runs away.
The 79-year-old man had his jaw broken in the Nov. 24 attack.

“The plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?” Mr. Barrett says in the video, according to the authorities.

Knockout, in which someone decides to attack a random victim and tries to knock him or her out with one punch, has been in the news after a spate of assaults in recent weeks.

The “game” has spawned a fierce debate since many of the reported victims have been white and their assailants have been black, but hate crimes charges have been all but non-existent.

Last month New York authorities did charge one person with a hate crime, saying the assailant targeted a Jewish man.

Hundreds of teenagers stormed and trashed a Brooklyn mall in a wild flash mob that forced the shopping center to close its doors during day-after Christmas sales, sources said on Friday.

More than 400 crazed teens grabbed and smashed jars of candy, stole cheap items such as baby balloons and beat up security guards at Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Mill Basin between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., merchants said.

A violent game of “Knockout” also broke out on the upper level of the mall — and one teen may have been carrying a gun, sources said.

The teens used social media to plan the mass looting, vowing to put the mall “on tilt” – or to raid it, according to posts on Facebook and Twitter.
Clerks, who scrambled to close up their shops, said they were terrified.

“I’ve been here seven years and I have never seen anything like this before — I’m so scared. I know they will come back,” said Abu Tabel,31, a clerk at Candy Plaza 2.

“I was begging them to stop. There were a lot of kids hundreds of kids… [Security] would chase them out one door and they would come back in another door.”

Clerks at shops such as Macy’s, Victoria’s Secret and Mac quickly rolled down metal gates as security guards tried desperately to break up the mob. The mall was closed for roughly an hour around 7 p.m., sources said.

Violent fights also broke out in front of McDonald’s and Best Buy, sources said. Video footage shows a pack of teenage girls punching each other and screaming as security guards struggled to break up the brawl.

Other teens were even more violent, sources said.

“You know they were playing the knockout game yesterday,” said perfume merchant Shante, 21, referencing a game in which teens try to knock each other out with a single punch.

“People were getting really scared. A tall white guy with a grey bubble coat was wearing a ski mask and a skull cap and he had his hand under his coat like he was holding a gun,” she said.

Some teens took to Twitter to brag about the trashing the mall.

“Kings Plaza was on tilt today,” Ray Rat Sextana wrote on Facebook.

Another teen, Mark Wallace, added, “Sh-t was crazy at Kings Plaza. So the security started shutting down the mall and kicking all teens out but it was so much of us they couldn’t get control.”

Police sources said it’s unclear what prompted the mall madness but some of the teens incorrectly believed the rapper Fabolous would be performing at the mall, according to social media posts.

Video footage also shows two security guards carrying a teenage boy out of the mall.

Other teens bragged on social media about beating up security guards and breaking bus windows on the ride home.
“Teens rioting at Kings Plaza. They just shut the mall DOWN …. Rrowdy teens fighting and running through out the mall. It was crazy!!!” one mall-goer posted.

No arrests were made.
