Black guy is at a local pool with his son when some fool comes over and starts yelling at him and his son...screaming “white power” and making an ass of himself.

Get this: he isn’t even a resident of the apartments where you have to be invited in order to swim there. He takes a swing at the father, and gets knocked out.

But that’s not enough. He goes somewhere and comes back with some kind of a bat, swings it at the guy, and ends up STILL getting his ass knocked out a second time.

Quote:
Witnesses and police said 28-year-old Joshua Valentine targeted a black man, who was at the swimming pool to watch his kids. Police said Valentine verbally then physically attacked the victim with a closed fist. The victim, however, turned the tables on Valentine, and knocked him out.

When Valentine awoke a few minutes later, he left the pool area, then returned with a baseball bat. Police and witnesses said he swung at the victim, who not only fended Valentine off with a chair, the victim then struck Valentine several times with his fist, knocking Valentine out a second time.
What is emboldening these fools as of late? Why do they think that all of a sudden, what used to be unthinkable is NOW permissible and won’t be answered back with equal or greater force?

Anyway the guy is in jail...thankfully. SMH

In this country there is so much emphasis put on tribal identity. In really our differences are an illusion because we are an extension of our environment. We create these barriers between us. Hopefully new generations break through these molds and overcome this mad stupidity.

What do you mean "of late" and "now" permissible"? Seems to me stuff like this has been going on forever, don't know where you've been. Or are you toeing the party line and insinuating that we'd all be holding hands and singing kum ba yah if it were not for the evil orange man?

Police ended up arresting Valentine for malicious harassment based on race.
I'd go with attempted murder but the State isn't the sharpest tool in the shed (though it wrote the book on killing).

Not that it matters because it's a clear violation of the non-aggression principle and there is no such thing as a "hate crime" but what info leads the State to believe it was based on race? No info is provided in the article.

good to see the dumba$$ got his butt handed to him, he deserves it. also good that the dad didnt get into trouble as well.


as for what is emboldening them, a few things;


1: hate


2: anger


3: entitlement


and all three have been around for a long time.

Justice served and a happy ending!

Neck/face tattoos are usually the mark of a loser, so no surprise there with that idiot. And coming back with a tee ball bat after getting his ass beat? Stupid! Those must weigh 10 ounces at max.
