LiveLeak.com - Man robbed and knocked out while being sexually harassed

Quote:
Shocking and disgusting. The video was leaked a couple of months ago on twitter and the perpetrators are yet to be identified. The event took place outside the United States Post Office and Courthouse on Calvert Street - Baltimore, Maryland.
Could someone outraged about the Trayvon Martin incident explain to me the following:

1. Why isn't this being addressed by the race hustlers (Jesse Jackson, Sharpton, Obama, etc.)

2. Explain to me why the world wouldn't be a better place without each and every one of these kids in the video.

Thanks in advance.

I saw this on worldstarhiphop earlier this week, and i said to my co-worker, "please don't let this be in Baltimore," but I knew they were as soon as I heard them talking. Honestly, that was ****ed up. That's why people of other other races see us as a bunch of low-class, uneducated thugs. That's why black people don't wanna be around other black people most of the time. All of them deserve what they get.

I'm not particularly outraged by Trayvon Martin although I think his death could and should have been avoided.

The white guy in the video should have racially profiled and got the hell out of there.

Apparently, this looks like it happened on by the post office on N. Calvert st. right near city hall.

I heard about this, and was outraged by the video going viral. My question is this: when someone is obviously in distress, aren't we supposed to be civilized human beings and at least call for help? Did that happen, or was everyone just gawking and doing nothing? Regardless of race, this is just plain wrong. The fact it became a viral video causes me to take pause and wonder if we are now getting some kind of entertainment from watching people getting beaten, robbed, or worse.

Civilization is going backwards.

Baltimore already has a reputation for violence in the US. What's another video?

I usually tell anyone who asks that I'm from Delaware. That saves a lot of explaining.

I also "googled" that site for videos and wow. They have a ton. Yes, Baltimore does have it's violence but the videos were filmed everywhere, leaving no city unscathed. I was especially surprised with the DC films, thinking that those times were behind them. I know most Black youths are good kids trying to do well but those images and videos make skeptics hard to believe that.

Those fools definitely don't represent the majority of us. Worldstarhiphop is the reason alot of this stuff happens nowadays.
