RE: KNOCK OUT ASSHOLE

I found this article today, pretty much makes the point that Black on Black crime doesn't matter, black on white crime doesn't matter, but let one ignorant ass white asshole assault a black man and then brag about it....


Anyway, here is the article

http://guardianlv.com/2013/12/hate-crime...ut-racism/

Hate Crime Charge For Texas Man Who Proves a Theory About Racism [Correction]
Added by Graham Noble on December 27, 2013.

Is the knockout game a hate crime or is it not?

CORRECTION: The Texas man involved in this incident was 27 years old. Although the article states this fact, the man was wrongly described throughout as a “teen.” The word has now been taken out with apologies from the writer. The point of the editorial, however, remains unchanged. The original article, with the correction, appears below.

A Texas man decided to prove a theory about the infamous “knockout game” and is now facing a hate crime charge. The brave mainstream media – in its unrelenting quest to ignore the truth – has said almost nothing about the game that has now caught on in many areas of the country. The game involves one or, usually, more youths attacking a random victim with the objective of knocking them out with one punch.

The media has largely declined to report on the game for one simple reason; in almost every case, the perpetrators have been black and the victims white or Hispanic – and, in one or two cases, orthodox Jews. This, of course, does not fit the narrative of the liberal media. So long as the nation continues to have to tolerate a biracial President posing as a black man, the media groupies have to keep stoking the idea that racism is a major problem in this country so that they can continue to accuse anyone who criticizes this President of being racist.

Suddenly, a white Texas man hits a black man and the story is one of the biggest of the day; suddenly, we are hearing about hate crime; suddenly we are hearing about long prison sentences. This “game” has been played numerous times, across the country; more than one death has been attributed to it. Now, however, the media is acting as if this is the first incident.

Suddenly, the knockout game is important. When whites where being targeted by blacks, no-one cared, but now that the table has turned, the world is about to come to an end. The man from Texas, 27-year-old Conrad Alvin Barnett, knew this. It appears he was trying to prove a theory about racism and he succeeded. The Houston man recorded words on a cell phone, prior to the attack; he allegedly said “The plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?”

White-on-black crime in the United States – although a very small percentage of all crime committed – is spotlighted far more than any other crime; When George Zimmerman, a Hispanic dubbed “white” by the media, shot and killed black teenager Trayvon Martin in a clear case of self-defense, as determined in a court of law, the nation briefly went up in flames. Had Zimmerman been black or had Martin been white, no-one outside the immediate families would have ever heard the names of either of these men. There was much talk of the shooting being a hate crime, which demonstrates how sick American society has become.

At the same time, hundreds of black youths, including very young children, were being gunned down on an almost daily basis on the streets of gun-free Chicago. They, however, were all killed by other blacks, so their deaths were simply not important or newsworthy.

Every crime is a hate crime. Skin color is irrelevant. Only in a truly sick and dying society would people choose to judge the severity of a crime by the race of those involved.

Barnett was clearly trying to make a point – and he made it. The way he chose to make the point is disturbing and speaks to a certain level of intelligence. Barnett has no legitimate moral defense for his actions and most rational people would argue that he deserves to be punished for an unprovoked physical assault on an innocent person. The case needs to be put into perspective, however; one would think that Barnett had committed mass murder when one looks at the amount of coverage this case is getting. He certainly should be punished, but only to the same level that anyone other person, black or white, would be, for the same crime.

The Justice Department, lead by known liar, racist and criminal Eric Holder, has jumped in with federal charges against Barnett. The same Justice Department that declined to bring charges against members of the New Black Panthers after they were filmed outside a polling station brandishing weapons; the same Justice Department that ran illegal guns to Mexican organized crime – headed by the same Attorney General who lied to Congress; the same Justice Department that has, thus far, chosen to ignore the knockout game.

There are several other questions surrounding this case; is Barnett actually a racist? If he is, there is actually no law against it. Is Barnett having mental issues? He is allegedly bipolar, which in no way excuses his behavior.

The real question all Americans – and particularly the cowards in the mainstream media – should be asking themselves, however, is this: Is there no longer equal justice for all? Is a crime now considered more or less serious, depending upon the race of the perpetrators and their victims? There is no question about whether or not Barnett should be punished for his actions; there is a question about why this young man is facing a more severe punishment purely because of the color of his skin. It appears that this Texas man has proven a theory about racism in America.

I'm hoping we learn more about how the feds got involved as Parnham outlines his case for unconstitutional federal charges.

IMO, there's probable cause to charge a "hate crime" at the state or fed level; that's why it stands after prosecutors presented a judge with only enough of the evidence to legally secure the charge.

BUT, whether that's actually the appropriate classification for this crime in terms of Barrett's motivation and proving it in a court of law depends on circumstance and other evidence that we likely haven't seen/heard yet.

Prosecutors in Texas seem to prefer to stay away from the "hate crime" statute altogether and go for the max on the criminal offense charge itself, even when a crime could also fall under the "hate" classification. A hate crime is so much harder to prove if there's any ambiguity at all in terms of motive.

We'll see.

P.s. the "editorial" you posted is opinion and propaganda, though I don't doubt it reflects the true views of Mr. Noble and that of a large like-minded group - heard it all before many, many times.

RE: KNOCK OUT ASSHOLE

I agree with you HOTD and Yes the article was propaganda, not much different than most print media IMHO, just the other direction
I also just quit on my "Research" on this thing.
Spent the last hour or so searching and I have not found 1 single instance of white on black knockout type of assaults, I readily found 12 separate videos or video accounts of black on white knockout assaults.
When I did a google search for "Black man charged with hate crime" I got 4 pages of referenced to the Texas case.
Not scientific research by any stretch, but it sure backs my opinion of justice in america
My point that the legal system just plain does not want to admit that the blacks are every bit as racist as the white folks ever thought about stands.
I just they don't have the stomach to pursue it.

RE: KNOCK OUT ASSHOLE

Racism exists amongst almost all ethnic groups, everywhere in the world. Still, from my observations only, acceptance and tolerance of diversity continues to increase overall and there is less blatant discrimination than there was in the past (at least here in the US).

On the other end of the spectrum, again from my observations only, there are too many cases where people are quickly labeled "racists" for certain acts and expressions of thought when those doing the labeling would have no way of knowing that, in such limited context.

People like you are why our prisons are over crowded. He punched a guy. If the man died, that would be a totally different story but 10 years for sucker punching someone? Get real.i heard recently that the US has more people incarcerated than any other country. The guy should do time but we should save space for the real criminals and set the damn pot violators go for chrissake.

I wish somebody would try to sucker punch my husband. All these years of karate and boxing and I have yet to see him get the opportunity to really beat the shit out of somebody like the good ole days. 52

RE: KNOCK OUT ASSHOLE

This guy coulda sucker punched anybody, user. He chose a 79 year-old man, not a fit middle aged dude or someone he could expect to just bounce back or put up any kind of defense. He preyed on the most vulnerable. The victim Barrett chose coulda died from a punch so hard that it broke his jaw in two places, given the victim's age.

People who abuse the elderly disgust me and I don't put much past them if left to their own devices. I'd like to see Barrett get 10 years because I think he deserves it.

However, if the "hate crime" classification won't stand up and a simple assault charge is more appropriate, a few years behind bars (if that's the max for the assault) will be better than probation or an acquittal and will have to do.

I do agree with you that too many people are put away for too long in the US. It's good to therefore see that mandatory drug sentences for limited possession have been lowered to citations in several states, long sentences for drugs and non-violent offenses are being reduced and many early releases have recently been granted, etc... Reduce the incarceration of the non-violent to make room for the violent, IMO - Barrett is violent and not a stupid kid. He's a 27-year-old man.

That was my point. He had to punch an elderly black man to get his point across, really? The guy is a fucking asshole, lock him up for good for all I care. Had he knocked out some 6'4 300 pound nigger than his theory might be a bit more respectable.

RE: KNOCK OUT ASSHOLE

I agree. He's a stupid, cowardly asshole for picking on an elderly man. Still, I don't know that the law should try to discriminate by age. What if he'd been a 185lb, relatively fit retard like MS? Should he get a harsher sentence because MS is a retard? I dunno...let a bunch of seniors run him over with their scooters and beat him with canes and then lock him up for some reasonable amount of time for the crime.

A 90+ y/o shot the hell out of a much younger intruder around here. Heh-heh.

I'm very glad the old guy he hit didn't die.

Just for the record, I am NOT 185lbs, NOR relatively fit.

You can really sling some hurtful words, User.

And to think, I WAS going to meet up with you when I come to SF.

Your loss is HotD's gain.

I'd meet you and your wife for breakfast, MS.

It's not like I'm Kate Upton or anything, but you still pant over Lindsay Lohan and probably even Octomom and Mama BooBoo.

I don't trust your wandering eyes and it would be rude to have both your wife and I laughing in your face over eggs benedict, so I'd be wearing a pancho and a flattening sports bra.

Screw hate crimes. There's no such thing.

Put them in prison for twenty years without parole for attempted murder.

If they say they were just trying to knock them out then tag on five years for terminal stupidity.
