    You mean the shamelessly racist act of self-defense at 00:50? He should apologize and get fired. SMH.

    Terrible. Hope they track them down and prosecute to the fullest.

    This appeared to be a localized issue in downtown. Probably with loose gang affiliation.

    But you just did. You just did it in a way to seem cute. So why not just say what you want to say?

    Okay, I will mention THE elephant in the room.

    Did you notice how the attacks were captured by video cameras all over the place? Thank God we have Big Brother to keep us "safe". All hail Big Brother!

    You are most sincerely welcome.

    At the end of the video, I did see one/two individuals trying to stop another in the attack. Very disturbing & despicable in what took place.

    Yeah, these days those surveillance cameras are all over the PUBLIC spaces - that could either be good and/or bad!

    So will these be prosecuted as hate crimes? Hopefully the feds dump the max number of charges on these pos's. The lack of respect for others is out of control in this country and a big part of it is the lack of fathers in the homes.

    Is there any indication that this was done for purposes other than robbery? If not, then no, there won't be hate crime prosecutions attached, and we will have to settle for charging them with what they did, assault and robbery, which is a state issue.

    did they only attack and rob white people? if you target a person in part because of their race how is that not a hate crime?

    No, hate is what you do when you want to persecute someone who thinks and acts different than you. They were....misguided souls who really need a hug. Just because the victims were a different race and maybe were from a different economic status, that does not mean they were hating that they don't like that the victims had things they did not. Hate is evil. Misguided is poor and angry/desperate. Bless their souls.


    Can you now tell the difference? Yeah, neither can I.

    I asked if there was any indication that they were targeted because of their race. Is there? Because the article said that they were just targeting drunk sports fans as easy targets for robbery. You have to prove that they were targeted for their race, not just that they were a different race.
