Racist Footsteps is picking on "white people" again... :giggle:

The black man seen on video during the Charlottesville incident being attacked in a parking garage by a group of six white supremacist thugs who beat him with metal poles and a wood plank, causing a spinal injury, has been charged with a felony for trying to defend himself. A judge issued a warrant after a guy who runs a white supremacy hate group asked him/her to.

Cue the bull**** from the usual morons...

Black man attacked by white supremacists in Charlottesville faces felony charge

By Ian Shapira and Derek Hawkins October 10 at 6:44 PM

The black man beaten in a Charlottesville parking garage by white supremacists after a “Unite the Right” rally has been charged with a crime in connection with the incident, even as police continue searching for some of the people who kicked him to the ground and pummeled him.

A local magistrate issued an arrest warrant Monday for DeAndre Harris on a felony charge of unlawful wounding after a man, identified by Harris’s attorney as Harold Ray Crews, reported that he was injured by the 20-year-old during the August brawl. Crews, who describes himself as a “Southern Nationalist” and an attorney on Twitter, did not return phone calls seeking comment.

The magistrate’s charge against Harris, who suffered a spinal injury and a head laceration that required 10 stitches, came less than 48 hours after a second rally by white supremacists and white nationalists in Charlottesville and caught the city’s police department by surprise.

“We were not expecting this. We were expecting to do our own investigation into the man’s allegations,” said Detective Sgt. Jake Via, who is supervising the parking garage case.

But alleged crime victims can go to magistrates for warrants after they’ve filed police reports.

Harris’s attorney, S. Lee Merritt, denounced the charge and said it was orchestrated by the League of the South, an organization labeled by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group. Crews, who runs the group’s North Carolina chapter, was not injured “in any way” by Harris, Merritt said.

“We find it highly offensive and upsetting,” Merritt said, “but what’s more jarring is that he’s been charged with the same crime as the men who attacked him.”

Exactly. They love to deflect by making it not about what happened but who reports it....because in their world, racism is all about bothering white men by telling them what's going on. This is actually how they see themselves, as the VICTIMS of white racism by other whites who want to change things.

Let that marinate in your brain a moment.

The new victims of racism are white men who have to hear about what black men and women go through. These same people scoff at unarmed black people being murdered in the streets by cops who the system protects no matter how much evidence there is against them.

These are the real snowflakes.

This guy was fortunate he was next door to the police station (sarcasm). Otherwise the thugs might have felt free to really do some damage. He's beaten within an inch of his life by six terrorists and he's facing a felony for swinging at one with a flashlight.

Just imagine if this guy was a Muslim. He'd probably be in Gitmo by now getting water boarded. This is the America these asswipes wanted. Is anyone fooled by this feeble reply that "It's wrong but what should we have to say about it?"

This morning we learned two new things about these nincompoops;

1) They're "too alpha" to be victims of racism. Why? Because "they" all share the superior genes necessary of course.

2) Their little feelings are hurt when one of their own goes off the reservation.

I have to admit. I didn't read the article before posting. The reason? Because you guys are always crying wolf.

Yesterday one of you nimrods posted a link trying to say that 95% of food stamps are used by white people. I thought, "oh wow, not what I expected. I better read this. Sounds like a liberal actually posted a useful fact" I clicked and spent 10 min reading it...only to find out that the moron cherry picked a stat from a tiny trailer park town in Kentucky and used it to say that was the make-up of food stamps usage for the entire country.

Just the same, each time another poor black innocent kid with his hands up gets shot, I click the link to my shock and horror until i see that the headline was false and the kid legally had to be shot because he was threatening the cop.

Stop crying wolf and we'll respect you more.

Riiiight - all the cases of extrajudicial killings of unarmed black men by rogue cops that appear in the news every time you turn around (Philandro Castile being probably the most high-profile and egregious case) are just figments of our collective imagination. ::)

That's the ticket, Jethro.

Yesterday one of you nimrods posted a link trying to say that 95% of food stamps are used by white people.



:bs:


It was a link to an article that showed that the county with the highest rate of food stamp use in America was ~95% white and ~95% Republican.

I posted the link in response to your efforts to broad brush black people (blacks who identify as liberal and who are not your "friends," that is) as a bunch of lazy, shiftless bums who are unable to accomplish anything in life without affirmative action, welfare, food stamps, etc.

You know? The usual racist trope.

All it took was one counterexample to blow your stupid generalization up.


Just the same, each time another poor black innocent kid with his hands up gets shot, I click the link to my shock and horror until i see that the headline was false and the kid legally had to be shot because he was threatening the cop.

Then either your reading comprehension sucks or you're just flat-out in denial.

Or maybe you're one of these right-wing half-wits who only reads Breitbart and Infowars?

Well you made the right choice. Fake news racesteps making up a headline that doesn't represent the actual facts the article is presenting. Which is that the dude got jumped and got his ass beat by 6 racist white guys but he's being charged because he assaulted someone before that ass beating.

I used to doubt that a 12 year old boy playing with a toy gun would be gunned down by cops 2 seconds after they arrive on the scene when a dispatcher is told by the citizen who reported it that it might be a toy. I used to doubt a cop would shoot a man in the back who's fleeing and 20 yards away from him. I used to doubt a cop could pull up to a scene where a woman just reported a rape in her alley and he'd shoot her through the door of his cruiser without provocation. I used to doubt a cop would broadcast to the entire world on video his intention to murder someone and five seconds later do it.

Sounds like the white supremacist found a loophole in order to get this guy arrested. The magistrate clearly didn't do their homework or didn't care to. Should definitely be looked into. Maybe the magistrate's hands were tied due to the writing of the law. Dunno but nobody should be able to file a false police report and get someone arrested solely on that testimony. Hopefully the prosecutor tosses this out asap and charges the jackass who filed the complaint. At least the police department isn't responsible in this case. I will be stunned if this goes any further. I'm stunned it got this far.

That's correct. According to the story the law allows charges to be filed if a police report was filed, which it was. The prosecutor has discretion on whether to accept the case, and you would think this will get tossed...but who knows?

This guy runs a hate group. One would "assume" that's enough to provide enough skeptism to avoid this case being accepted.

This was the word that gave me pause while reading it. "Allows" would indicate some leeway for the magistrate. If this is correct then the magistrate is either incompetent or racist. If the law referred to in the article used "compelled" or "mandated" then it's just a poorly thought-out law cited that was abused by a racist. Result A is a problem. Result B is easily fixable.
