Federal authorities charge white ‘knockout’ suspect with hate crime
The Washington Times ^ | 12/26/2013 | By Stephen Dinan

Posted on 12/26/2013 9:21:55 AM PST by Carbonsteel

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.

If it was a white man hitting a black man; then it wasn’t a case of the knockout game.

Bzzzzt!

But nice try to the Lame Stream Media for trying to confuse the issue.

Get used to it. Soon, they will allow black animals to hunt us down like dogs with the encouragement of the liberals.

First, they will have to take our guns away but hey! They’re working on that as I speak.

An evil crime like this is evil, no matter who perpetrated it. Who cares what race it is? Attacking a 79 year old man is just plain evil.

These charges make sense. It’s exactly the same charge that is filed against black thugs who target white victims in the same game. Isn’t it?

I take it that the knock out artist was of the white persuasion? Regardless he should spend a good length of time in the poky.

“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.

Apparently so. Blacks play the knockout game and its no big deal. Let a white guy do it,  and it is National News AND a Hate Crime.

When you look at the incidents in isolation they are just crimes.
Like the way the left wanted us to look at Muslim terrorist attacks on Americans...

But, when you tell the truth about it, the “knockout game” is a semi-organized, Executive Branch-encouraged race war.

is it fair? no way... but i only feel contempt for this creep attacking anybody, let alone a 79-year old... how disgusting... i do feel for the white victims whose black assailants are not being charged with hate crimes... that is not justice...

p.s. the whole idea of hate-crimes is stupid in my opinion...

If I'm ever on a jury that's considering any kind of “hate crime” charge I'll vote “not guilty” on that charge..regardless of how despicable was the crime that brought rise to that charge.Nobody has the right to physically harm another except in cases of self defense.That includes white people assaulting blacks,normal people assaulting perverts...and so on.So if the evidence justifies it I'll vote guilty on any assault,attempted murder,etc charges but not guilty on the hate crime charge.

Yes it is in at least one case; a Muslim in NYC was charged for an attack on an Orthodox Jew back in Nov.:

Is it applied proportionally by race and or creed; probably not.

Totally agree. Very well put, MrB.

The pattern is obvious. Individually, the crimes are heinous no matter who commits them. But clearly most are black-on-white and various governments, law enforcement agencies and the press are covering that up.

Blacks do it, ok. Or more like “it’s not an outbreak” But when one white man does it, the full weight of the Imperial Federal Gov’t falls on him.

Oh he’s wrong to do it! But everyone who does it does wrong!

Good. They should.

Now let’s see them arrest all the black knockout perpetrators and charge them with hate crimes.

Every single one.

Aside from the the video of Barrett committing the attack and commenting that he wanted to see if he committing such an attack would get national attention, there does not seem to be too much evidence to make it a hate crime.

It’s worthy of note that it was the city who charged him with a “hate crime”, not the feds (as is the case of the Texas suspect).

Actually, all polar bears are black. They just look white because of their fur, which, oddly enough, isn't white but transparent -- some trick of light.

(Don't know how this applies to the topic at hand, but thought it interesting.)

Part of it is that the media is so in the tank for Obama. The media scarecly report stories of knockout games, but when they do, never report that it’s almost always black perpetrators.

In other words, it’s all right for a black to attack a White.

Hate crime laws were created to put White people in jail for anything they say or do, or don’t say or don’t do, and to set free non-Whites who physically attack Whites.

I’m being proven right every day.
