You're exactly right! In fact, in MY OPINION, when this punk gets out of prison he would be the perfect candidate for a law "enforcement" career!

As a cop, he could just claim he was scared! He wouldn't have to hit some elderly guy with his fist then! He could just shoot him a dozen times or so.....and kill his pet too while he's at it!

Did he start the knock out game? So why are some of the responses, "welp blacks do this all the time" as if that means anything for the victim in this crime? This shouldn't have happened. And knock out games shouldn't happen period, regardless of the race of the victim or the perpetrators. Imo fixating on who started it, who does it most, etc, undermines the victim in this specific crime, and actually transforms this thread into a completely different discussion that isn't about this victim but the other victims of other crimes(in this case the whites that have gotten knocked out).



Here's the bigger observation: in threads where blacks are the perpetrators or the victims there are always several pages of people talking about every single case, statistic, or ill in black communities that portrays blacks collectively to be vicious uncivilized criminals. Another observation? When whites commit crimes in this forum rarely do people use these crimes to collectively group whites. White crimes are treated like individual bad crimes. Yet even in cases where whites are the perpetrators posters always find a way to circle these back to blacks even when blacks weren't the ones that committed the specific crime in the op. These posters will make statements that "blacks do "x" more anyway in larger numbers so what of this case where the black was finally a victim?"

Just like what's happening in this thread.
Nailed it.

I agree with you in theory. However, a hate crime shows premeditation, which can mean the difference in sentencing for the crime.

Post one case of a black person hitting a white that demonstrated it was a hate crime, since you say there are hundreds of them.

As a black person, yes, I was very disappointed that OJ got away with murder. But for every OJ you name, I can name dozens of George Zimmermans. Whites have gotten away with killing blacks more times throughout our nation's history than the other way around.

It's usually financial. They were trying to rob the white person. And in 99% of the cases, black people who rob or physically attack white people have the book thrown at them, so let's not sit up here and act like they get away with their acts.

I actually think OJ may have not been guilty of murder.

"Its usually financial" What! Don't try to rationalize or humanize a criminal. Go get an "F"ing job and stop trying to find the easy way out.

I do agree that justice is unfairly and particularly harsh on black people. But, if I were black and knowing that justice is unfair, I would stop committing crimes then...maybe its just me!

In regards to that idiot that committed the crime...a young white male ruthlessly attacking an elder black male. We disowned that fool a long time ago, so he is no longer a Caucasian, but rather an Caucidiot.
