Police: Suspect Called Black Man N-Word, Threatened Him & Encouraged Pit Bull to Attack
KATU ^ | 9/26

Posted on 09/26/2017 5:30:55 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Court documents say a white man called a black man the N-word, and told him he's "in the wrong neighborhood."

According to court documents, Mathu Dwain Karcher was with his pit bull when he began closely following a black man, who told Karcher he wanted to give him space because he didn't like pit bulls.

Karcher is then accused of telling his dog, 'Get 'em!' Because of a prior leg injury, the victim couldn't run away and the dog didn't end up attacking him.

Police say Karcher then told the victim, "N-word, you're in the wrong neighborhood!" and said something to the effect of, "if the dog wasn't willing to get him that he would kick the victim's ass]."

The victim then walked into a nearby Plaid Pantry, and Karcher tied up his dog outside. Documents say Karcher continued to threaten the victim inside the store, and was eventually asked to leave.

The victim then called police and waited for officers inside the store. Karcher was arrested moments later, and told police he didn't use any racial slurs or threaten the victim.

Karcher is facing intimidation and menacing charges.

It’s OK - if he’s another black guy.

Documents say Karcher continued to threaten the victim inside the store, and was eventually asked to leave.

So apparently there were witnesses to these threats and harassment, and this guy Karcher will get what's coming to him from the legal system.

I thought we had freedom of speech? Isn’t that what the NFL is telling us?

So he was arrested for calling someone a name and threatening them. okay;
The dude with the pitbull is denying everything, though.
Is it a crime to call someone the N word on the street even if you don’t touch them?
Just curious. I know it’s a vulgar thing to do but a lot of people get called names especially in traffic.

“Karcher was booked yesterday on the two misdemeanor charges and plead not guilty. He’s got an extensive criminal history—three felony and 13 misdemeanor convictions, per court records—and made the news in December when he “he crashed into a Portland police car, fled to his mobile home and initially refused to surrender after being hit with a Taser.””

This sort of thing seems totally opposite of what Wil Armisen’s show “Portlandia” represents.

This story must be fake. The police would have shot the black guy and the dog. </s>

This story is probably at least half fake news. But, if there indeed were credible witnesses who confirm this story then I would be the first cop to slap the cuffs on him!

This is exactly the kind of bs that takes us backward.

If this story is as told, then definitely white guy with pit bull terrier (another minus for me) is an ass.

But I’d think the only reasonable charge would be “stalking”, or “harassment”.

What words he used (unless about killing/beating) should really not matter, except to show hostility.

How many on here have ever been in a distinctly minority neighborhood after dark, and the “brothas” hassled you, called you honkey, whitey and catcalled “you are in the wrong neighborhood cracka”? It is a common occurrence, believe me.

Stupid and reprehensible behavior.

LBJ reportedly used that term all the time. The only person I’ve ever heard mention it was one of the founders of BLM. MSM seemed to ignore her when it comes to that statement.

I actually recently told a black person more or less the exact same thing, about being in the wrong neighborhood.

They were attempting to loot in my neighborhood after the hurricane, and the police would not make an appearance for several more days.
