Family attacked for "being in wrong neighborhood"
WAFB ^ | 5/13/13 | Kiran Chawla

Posted on 05/14/2013 6:34:56 AM PDT by jwb0581

Stubbs said a man wearing a pink shirt was in line trying to pay for gas when Donald Dickerson, 41, started making fun of him, leading to an argument.

"The defendant (Dickerson) approached the white male victim," the police report stated.

It went on to read, "the defendant told him he was in the wrong neighborhood and he was not going to make it out." The victim said that's when he "was punched and knocked to the ground."

At this time, his wife got out of the car and ran to help her husband. The victim said, "he continued to struggle with the defendant and was eventually knocked unconscious, which later he awoke in the hospital."

His wife told police, "after running to help her husband, she remembers falling to the ground and (being) knocked unconscious."

According to a close family friend, that's when the couple's teenage daughter got out of the car to check on her parents and, "observed a female punch her mother in the face, when her mother then fell to the concrete, hitting her head on the surface."

The daughter was also punched in the face.

"There were only three suspects but there were multiple people in the parking lot," said Stubbs.

Of those three, Dickerson was arrested and charged with second-degree battery. The other two suspects, Devin Bessye, 24, and Ashley Simmons, 22, were released on site after police wrote them each a summons for simple battery.

“Simple Battery?”

This is the reason I have a CCW and always carry a 1911 wiht backup magazines. The rounds in the gun are PP hollowpoints and I don’t intend for anyone threatening me to get up from the first hit.

Again the racists don’t get charged with a hate crime. Thought crime is only for the scapegoats, I mean white people.

Project ‘Floating Sheep’ has determined which parts of the country hateful tweets are originating. Maybe their next project will pinpoint where unprovoked beatings based upon skin color are occurring.

Yet we’re told by liberals that there’s a disproportion number of minorities that are imprisoned.

How many white neighborhoods in USA are there where a black person will be afraid of walking down the streets at night time? How many black neighborhoods are there where a white person will NOT feel afraid walking down the streets at night unarmed?

Even with CCW, I still I have some rules:

1. Stay out of dangerous areas especially when the family is with me.

2. Avoid confrontation and certainly escalation.

3. If #1 and #2 fail, and life/safety is at stake, attack, evade and escape to call 911.

White people being attacked in black neighborhoods happens everyday in America, and it doesn’t matter if the white people are old or young, male or female. The reverse (black people being attacked in white neighborhoods) almost never happens. All rational people know this, yet the PC propaganda machine known as the media continues to roll with the lie that it’s the other way around.

Don’t act like food.

There are parts of town I do not go into unarmed, for that reason.

The perp was right. They were in the wrong neighborhood. Doesn’t excuse what happened, but they needed to be aware.

If you are from out of town, ask. If you can’t ask, pay attention to the area.

Or don’t go.

I recall all the hoopla around the Trayvon case, black parents warning their kids about walking in white neighborhoods.

OK white person! Soledad O’Brien must be bursting with pride...

Unfortunately GA got almost as many as Texas, and the crime stats in DeKalb county (a mostly chocolate county) climbed abruptly. There were a large number of (black) criminals (turning their lives around) shot and killed by police, and after that things calmed down a bit. As of two years ago GA still had 60,000 welfare "famblies" from Katrina still sucking the life blood out of the taxpayers.

This thought occurs to me every time I hear whining about white racism in America.

I'll be disproportionate when the percentage exceeds the percentage of Obama Rat voters for that minority.

I’m not buying it. When a black guys says “you’re in the wrong neighborhood”, we all know what that means and it’s not about a pink shirt. Also, all those other random black folks didn’t jump into the melee over a pink shirt either.

“The defendant (Dickerson) approached the white male victim,”

Notice how it gives the race of one but deliberately and intentionally omits the race of the other.

Hate crime laws were created for the express purpose of criminalizing anything a White person can say or do, or not say or not do, while setting free any non-White who does a similar action against a White.

Unfortunately, no. It washed many OUT of New Orleans, but a lot of them landed in Baton Rouge,and they never went back. The area around Perkins Road and Scenic Highway has sections of "Martin Luther King Boulevard" territory nearby.

“Martin Luther King Boulevard”

A few years ago the wife and I took an overnight trip to Savannah GA. (we live 3 hrs south in NE FLA) After spending a nice day in downtown Savannah we headed to the hotel I booked online. The directions contained necessary travel on the local MLK blvd (you can imagine the view). At one traffic light my wife turned to me and calmly said “if the scenery doesn’t change soon, keep driving until we get home” to Florida. I turned to her and said “roger that”.

Yes, the New Orleans vs. Baton Rouge "groups" (they don't like to use the word "gangs") and the post-Katrina struggle for power and territory in Baton Rouge was a non-story that didn't fit the MSM narrative.

In that part of town, from what I understand, even a CCW wouldn't help you. And if you did manage to survive, expect to be imprisoned with the family and friends of the people who attacked you. The high crime keeps chasing those who might vote against the current Powers That Be out of the city.

Your Rule 3 is irrelevant, immaterial and hardly germane. Given the preponderance of force (outnumbered), imposition of serious injury, reasonable fear of death - the daughter should have exited the vehicle with her shottie chambered, once on her feet and hostiles identified, the safety off goes off and her trigger finger is inserted into the trigger guard.

Reporter to Public - "We are looking for a man wearing cloths in connection with the attack of an uptight, wealthy, white family, driving a REALLY nice car at a neighborhood gas station."

I went to LSU and got a job at a local chem. plant biggie. I lived close to the University Lakes (between the lakes and Perkins Road)for many years. Moved to Washington state 1995 (job-related reasons). Even back then the crime "edge" was beggining to creep in our direction. I don't like to think what that area is probably like today.

What I want doesn't matter. What you want doesn't matter. What is does.

There are parts of town you don't go into. They went there. That doesn't mean they deserved a beating, but you need to be aware of where you are.

If you honestly believe that you can go anywhere you want to and not expect a challenge and or attack, you are a fool. Go walking at night in the Ford City part of Chicago. Let me know how well that works.

The cops won't do anything. If they did, you would have a riot, lawsuits, and the NAACP attacking you in the courts. So the de facto result is containment.

It is the unspoken rule in many areas.

If you travel a lot, be aware of where you are. If you are local, then you had better know what places to go, and how to get the heck out of the "bad" places. In certain places, you don't go to anything "free" (like where I live) as you are pretty much guaranteed that there will be at least an assault if not a shooting or two.
