Knockout: Victims of brutal Downtown Mall assault want arrests, and answers from police

Knockout: Victims of brutal Downtown Mall assault want arrests, and answers from police

A couple’s late night stroll on the Christmas-lit Downtown Mall turned to terror in the early morning hours of Friday, December 20, when they were brutally assaulted by three men in what appears to have been a random act of violence.

Even though one of the victims, Jeanne Doucette, managed to take photos that appear to show the assailants as they kicked and pummeled her boyfriend Marc Adams to unconsciousness, Charlottesville Police still do not have any suspects. Doucette says there were other witnesses to the crime, which allegedly occurred just outside the Wells Fargo building at around 1am as she and Adams walked from Miller’s to Rapture, and she is baffled as to why the police haven’t shared her images more widely with people who could have seen the suspects earlier in the evening.

“I cannot understand why they didn’t let people know what happened,” said Doucette, who still bore injuries from the assault when she met for an interview a week later. “Those pictures might have prompted some tips.”

The images she captured are blurry but nonetheless appear to corroborate her account of the night’s events, including the brutality of the beating, during which she says the assailants joked and laughed, even stopping to hug in the midst of the onslaught.

Doucette said the assault occurred after she and Adams, both 39, had met for a drink at Miller’s after Adams finished his shift as chef for a downtown food cart. They headed east up the Mall toward Rapture to end their night with music, when Adams tripped and fell in front of Derriere de Soie lingerie store, a block from Miller’s. As he was getting up, a man approached quickly, said something that Doucette couldn’t make out, and kicked Adams while he was on the ground, before being joined by his friends who beat Adams severely, breaking his ankle, cracking ribs and knocking out one of his teeth.

The grainy photos that Doucette took with her phone (posted below story) show the faces and clothing worn by the three alleged assailants, all black males. Doucette estimated the men were approximately  6’ tall and in their mid-20s or early 30s. In one photo, Adams is lying on his back on the Mall with a man looming over him. Doucette said the man was kicking Adams when she took the picture. In another picture, a large man in a black coat and light colored shirt appears to be moving towards Doucette’s camera as Adams is on his knees in the background.

While Doucette suffered bruising to her head and tearing of the cartilage in her ear, Adams bore the brunt of the men’s aggression, sustaining broken bones and a concussion that he said has robbed him of any memory of the incident and its immediate aftermath.

Flooded with fear and adrenaline, Doucette said, she reacted quickly after the assault began, confronting the first assailant.

“I came up and pushed him away and said, ‘What are you doing?’” she recalled.

The incident escalated when the man responded by striking her.

“The guy hits me repeatedly in the ear,” she said. “My earring was stabbing me in the head over and over.”

Two other men soon joined in the beating, Doucette said, and while they primarily focused on Adams, a local musician who at 5’5″ and 140 pounds was outsized and outnumbered, they would occasionally strike her.

“When he’d tell them to stop hitting me, they’d hit me twice,” said Doucette, who is 5’2″.

Doucette said she and Adams repeatedly tried to escape, but the assault continued east up the Mall and stopped in front of the Wells Fargo bank. Doucette said she threw her purse at the men, hoping that when they saw the cash inside they’d simply take the money and leave, but they had no apparent interest in robbing her. Instead, she said, they seemed to delight in the brutality.

“They were laughing, high-fiving, hugging, and then returning to kick him,” said Doucette. “There was some kind of camaraderie to it.”

The men were accompanied by a woman, who Doucette said repeatedly screamed at them to stop. The men ignored her pleas. Doucette said she had never seen the men before and there was nothing in her behavior or Adams’ that would have provoked the assault. Both victims wondered whether the episode was an example of the so-called “knock-out game,” in which assailants randomly strike an innocent passerby with the goal of rendering them unconscious. Several such assaults have resulted in the deaths of victims. Adams and Doucette checked Youtube for videos of their own assault in the days after it happened, but have found nothing. The cheerful demeanor of their attackers, however, has them wondering if they were targets of some kind of game.

“Maybe if we had played dead, they would have stopped,” said Adams. “If the point of the knockout game is to knock out, we kept getting up to help each other. We didn’t play right.”

Adams describes himself as a “passive person,” and while he said the head injury erased his memory of the attack, he doesn’t believe he could have said anything to provoke the men’s wrath.

“He’s the most non-confrontational person I know,” Doucette agreed.

The attack finally stopped after Doucette started taking pictures with her cell phone and several passersby appeared to be calling 911. By the time police arrived several minutes later, Doucette said, the assailants were gone. Adams, who had been briefly knocked unconscious, refused to be transported by ambulance to the hospital that night despite Doucette’s and emergency responders’ urgings. He also declined to be interviewed by police, although he called the next day to add his report to the information given to police by Doucette.

“My brain was messed up,” he said, repeating what Doucette has told him about his post-assault behavior. “I kept saying I wanted to go home.”

The next morning, Adams said, he did go to the hospital. In addition to the concussion and facial bruising including a black eye, x-rays confirmed his cracked ribs and fractured ankle. Nearly two weeks after the attack, the physical wounds are healing, but both Doucette and Adams are troubled by what they see as a lack of response from the Charlottesville Police Department.

“It’s like they don’t care,” said Doucette, who said she called police on December 29 to follow up on the investigation and was told that the case had been suspended due to a lack of information and had not been assigned to a detective. “I don’t understand why they couldn’t even have the courtesy to call and say we’re not even going to look for them,” she said.

According to CPD spokesperson Ronnie Roberts, investigators canvassed the Downtown area after the assault but did not find anyone matching the description of the alleged assailants. Police did not release Doucette’s pictures to the public, Roberts said, because they believed surveillance video from the bank might offer clearer images, and they hoped officers might recognize some of the men in Doucette’s photos without tipping them off that they were being sought.

Roberts said police requested the bank video on Friday, December 27, a week after the attack, and had not received it as of Sunday, December 29. On Sunday, Doucette finally posted the pictures she’d taken to her Facebook page and said she quickly received several tips that she has passed on to police. Her frustration at the lack of an investigation is palpable.

“I feel forgotten about,” Doucette said. “I feel like I’m not safe.”

  • Cville Person

    A friend and I saw these same men (I think — pics are blurry and memory is not always perfect, but they look very similar) beating another man to a pulp about a month ago just off the Downtown Mall. Police were called and took over 45 min to arrive.

    • Damnyankees

      And you can walk to the police station in five minutes from anywhere on the mall

  • CaliGirl

    As someone who visits the Charlottesville area to visit family and friends, I love the Downtown Mall – but the CPD response to this is very discouraging. Kind of negates the money the “Visit Charlottesviiille” people are spending to advertise in magazines and on social media.

  • Cville resident

    Thank you C-ville Weekly for reporting this and shame on the police for not bringing this to public awareness.

    • Justice league

      They need to be shot down dead. they and their kind are lower than animals!

    • M

      Police bring this kind of thing to the attention of the media all the time. It’s the media who chooses not to share it.

      • Weary of it

        I can tell you a young college girl that works at a Greenville NC Starbucks was attacked by a mob of blacks 3 weeks ago,in their parking lot- and had her jaw broken.She has left college and moved back home, her dreams on hold—not a peep from police or local media

      • RandomThoughts

        This is NOT true

        Charlottesville PD has a vested interest in keeping attackers identifying characteristics quiet because Charlottsesville has a violence problem nobody wants to talk about .

      • AmericanMan2012

        Do the police and DOJ mr Eric Holder, really press charges against the dozens of blacks who did hate crimes against whites. To them hate crimes against whites is not subject to the hate crime stature

    • Old Hickory

      When I clicked on this link I was SURE the perps were going to be Amish.

      • Buck Bagaw

        Well they usually are!!

    • Your_Name_Goes_Here

      C’mon… it’s black on white crime. That CAN’T be a hate crime, right? Our Dear Leader’s chosen one, Eric Holder, has told us so.

    • SBaker2

      Black Klans are thriving on hate crimes, but rarely charged because several of their members reside in the DC empire–the attorney general and president come to mind.

  • local girl

    Earlier that night, similar looking men had an aggressive verbal confrontation in front of the alley by Citizen Burger…

  • Buckeyes Wahoo

    I feel this happens quite a bit if it happens too close to places UVA students hang out. Had Classmates mugged and they had no luck with either CPD or Campus police making a public inquiry until they started putting up posters themselves.

  • Psy-Ko Smiley

    I urge everyone to post this article to their facebook pages. And ask your friends who are local to share it. Someone knows who these guys are!

    Pure scum of the earth, conceal carry and use it! These animals would not be walking away laughing.

    • Guest

      Then you would catch sh*t for going Zimmerman on them!

      • Former Cville Resident

        Being alone and shooting at 3 men twice your size beating you to hell for reason is hardly going “Zimmerman”.

        • excelsiorrog

          It would be by time the press got through with the story… you knucklehead.

    • common sence

      Oh. So you can arm the dudes who are already kicking your ass.

      • erman

        That’s the point. They don’t get close enough with a weapon in your hand. If you bother to look up the stats on the defensive use of firearms then it would make it a little clearer. or… you can just chose to not be armed, which is ok also. That’s what’s so great about our country, you can chose to defend yourself or chose to trust the police to make nice chalk outlines and put yellow tape around your body.

      • oogabooga

        If she had time to take pics with her cellphone, she had time to shoot them.

    • Thomas Hall

      Read my comment about my attack and reevaluate. Another person also makes a clear case against guns. It’s just not as simple as you would like it to be

      • excelsiorrog

        Yeah, it really is that simple. Couple these bastards end up dead and the game would be over pretty quickly.

    • wial

      Please let your kids play with your guns. you’ll do the gene pool a favor.

  • Confused Cvillian

    Same thing happenned to me and my sisters at the Downtown Mall. After identifying who the assailants were and notifying the police & months of calling and speaking to superior officers charges were filed. I have a lot more to say about this but do not feel comfortable doing so because court is still pending. They just don’t care! Sad but true.

  • Jerome

    Had the victim been black there would already be an arrest, but only if the attacker were white

    • Cville Person

      In the incident I witnessed, both the attackers and the victims were black. Otherwise, eerily similar to this one. The man was getting beaten senseless, while a woman who appeared to be his girlfriend was crying and begging them to stop. Every once in a while the attackers turned on her and smacked or kicked her.

    • wial

      Utter rot.

    • Charm City Fan

      Yep but black on white violence doesn’t deserve press time. Had it been the other way around then it would have been a hate crime.

  • Thomas Hall

    i was attacked years ago by three men fitting phyisical description and behavior — laughing and carrying on like a game. i had no one to protect but myself so i was able to stay down and take the fun out of it for them. i sustained some injuries but not as bad as Marc’s. i managed to use my voice when gained consciousness and yelled out. they ran away…ironically toward the police station. this happen mid December in 2002 in front of the old A&M store (now the Sky Bar) at 12am. There was no justice. They seemed like out of town college football players. I’m also only slightly bigger than Marc and posed absolutely no threat to any of the three men. Not a word was said but eye contact was made, and somehow one of them managed to cold cock me. He mustve had a tremendous reach because my vision is good and i’m quick, but i was knocked out as if out of nowhere. I’m about as peaceful a person you can find. Sadly this was just fun for them, and here they are seemingly even more brazened…and despite more leads to go on in this case, nothing seems to be happening. It’s pathetic

    • MPK

      It was a group of HS students doing it back then. I am pretty sure they had all been arrested. I am sad to hear its started back up.

      • Thomas Hall

        that was a different group. I remember that story. i’m not saying my attackers were the same as these recent ones, but eerily similar.

    • erman

      Well then by all means, I think you should chose to NOT carry a weapon. You should chose to get a beating. Good for you…. I just want the choice to carry a weapon because if my wife, mother, daughters or son were getting beaten to a pulp by 3 bigger individuals I would not be as brave and courageous as you.

      I’d shoot at center of mass until they stopped beating my loved one. I guess I’m funny that way. I’m not a coward that puts my head down and receives a good beating then thanks the thugs for “just letting me live”.

  • Sherry Stroupe

    Miss Doucette was incredibly brave and smart to take these pics. If my hubby-to-be gets jumped in this “knockout” game, they’re going to see my “Glock-out” game and I’ve been practicing it since 2004

    • wial

      Or help your kids kill each other by mistake.

      • T Ruski

        That’s why you don’t leave a loaded gun on the night stand…

      • Northwest_Raised

        Oh the CHILLLLDREN!

        Like cars, high fat foods, or children born out of wedlock.

      • rickb8

        Like aborting them huh?

    • Alex

      As tempting as it is to want to see punks like this pick the wrong person to mess with, you need to REALLY know what you’re doing to be able to use a firearm in this situation to avoid (A) having the gun taken away from you and used against you or (B) firing and hitting an innocent bystander. The notion that simply having a gun and a few sessions of target practice will make you an expert at hand-to-hand combat and able to take down several assailants is flat out absurd. Unless you’re a Navy Seal or and Army Ranger, my money is, I’m sorry to say, on the thugs even if you’re armed.

      • magnum’s stache

        The notion that you need to be an expert at hand-to-hand combat to use a firearm effectively is flat out absurd. Saying you would put your money on thugs over any non-Seal or non-Ranger merely indicates the type of man you and your ilk are. If a 75-year-old grandma can do it, you can too, champ. Believe in yourself. Don’t be such an emasculated db.

        • Paineful Truth

          Ah! I can still remember my qualifying teachers compliment! GOOD HEAD SHOT

      • Daniel Morgan III

        You’re right; be a victim, it’s the liberal way.

      • AFITgrad86

        Curricula for concealed carry permits varies by state, but my training included specific information on how to retain your weapon and dealing with assailants at point blank range. If yours did not perhaps a trip to your local range for some one-on-one with a tactical instructor would be to your advantage. The techniques are simple but until you have discharged a weapon with the muzzle about the second button on your shirt and your off hand straight-armed into the bad guy’s chest you’ll not believe it can be done.

        • AFITgrad86

          Here’s the technique as it was taught. Notice the gun hand is away from the attacker, the off hand is in a blocking position, and the weapon is tight against the body. A round from this position is intended to enter the bladder or pelvis. Once the round is fired the shooter steps back and lowers their non shooting hand to establish a two hand grip with the weapon basically at the same height but now in front of him and a second shot may be fired. The shooter then continues to back away and as the distance increases may establish a Weaver or Triangular stance.

          This post is for general information only and is not intended to take the place of professional instruction.

      • disqus_DLuN45o5io

        Not true, shoot one, the rest haulazz. Shoot him right in the face too so his momma can’t open casket him w/o a substancial cash payment to the mortician of her choice.

        • thorgodofthenorth

          Two to the body one to the head

      • JP2012

        Why is it always assumed that one needs to be a Navy SEAL to be able to successfully defend oneself. This is perhaps the most absurd canard put out there by the anti-gun crowd. Millions of people take basic handgun safety and personal defense courses before they strap on a firearm. Where is the evidence that these people are killing innocent bystanders or being killed with their own firearms by the thugs attacking them…nowhere because it doesn’t exist, the entire concept is propaganda. Why is it that the anti-gun crowd always resorts to the misdirection that anyone carrying is doing so after “a few sessions of target practice?”

        Do you think that LEO go through SEAL training? Do they possess the skills of a SF operator? Fanciful thinking but most LEO fire their weapon once or twice a year for qualification and many couldn’t hit the proverbial broad side of a barn.

        • freedom74

          You are hitting a doublethink issue. Why Liberals believe that once one dons a government issued costume, that you are now imbued with certain super-human powers related to the job, that no non-costume wearing human could possibly possess.

      • jimtrees

        From your second word on is pure white guilt.

      • daddyksinger

        so, by your logic we should lie down and accept what these animals have for us?

        • drkennethnoisewater

          Just lie back and think of Obama!

      • James Brooks

        Alex, I would respectfully have to disagree with you. Number one, most of these incidents seem to happen where there are few, if any witnesses, thereby giving a more open field of fire. Number two, If these thugs hear a shot, or see someone who appears to be trained in the use of a weapon draw and fir, they will usually run like the sewer trash that they are.

      • JohnM

        You’re the very type these thugs would love to pound upon. Good luck, Daisy!

      • Doc d20

        Simply brandishing will likely cause Obama’s chicken-shit children to flee. They’re textbook cowards, always jumping people 3-on-1, 5-on-1, etc.

      • rickb8

        I speak from experience when I say you don’t have to be specially trained to defend yourself. I have been a CCW owner for 33 years and have been able to use a gun 6 times to stop criminals from making me a victim. Each time it was just the fact I had a gun that made them run off and leave me alone. I never had to fire a shot, but was ready to do so if needed. Alex, you need to keep your idiot ideas to yourself. It’s obvious you know nothing of this subject and are just another liberal afraid of guns. You are too weak to defend yourself and too afraid of guns therefore you want others to be just as weak and unable to defend themselves as you are. You may not wish to be responsible for your own safety, but don’t spread lies in an attempt to disarm others who will take that responsibility and successfully protect themselves and others. You’re part of the problem.

      • John C

        Alex, you are clueless, the thugs are no more trained than you are and the moment they realize that you are armed, hopeful when one of them are falling from a shot to his head, chest or crotch they will run away like the cowards that they are.

      • Jason

        It is a simple point and shoot tool. If you have seen the surveillance video of stores that had a person armed and how fast the perps tried to get out, then you would know a gun is a great deterrent to crime. They will not try to take it from you if you are firing at them. And if they do it is because you have run out of ammo and you are no worse off.

      • usaveteran

        Are you able to wipe yourself, or do you need some expert. Expert, a drop of water under force. Yeah right, just stand there, and let them slap you around……..

      • drkennethnoisewater

        A “few sessions of target practice” is a lot more than many police forces get for training, including NYPD. With a proper grip and some practice, I’d much rather take my chances against these ferals.

      • John C

        You have to have the mindset that you are not going to be a victim, that you will defend yourself and you loved ones. it sounds like you are nowhere near that. The weak get eaten in the jungle.


        You left out knife fighting Marines and a host of other weapons and fighting disciplines. Trouble is most of these cowards run in gangs and if alone they pick on the helpless such as the local ‘knock out’ of an 82 year old and his wife out for an evening walk.

        Alex, your points are well taken but ya gotta remember most of these punks are nothing more than illiterate scum. Take your fate in your own hands, buy a pistol and get a few sessions or your own. In a close up situation, aim anywhere and between the horns is the best place for a headshot.

        George Zimmerman did it right during a knockout attempt. Body shots stop most aggressors.

    • kerston

      But something doesn’t smell right. They stopped because she was taking pictures? That does fit the order of the story and they would run when they could have taken the camera?

      • excelsiorrog

        Why the heck should they run… they knew nothing would be done and nothing has. They are safe!

    • Thomas Hall

      Don’t be foolish. I can see you love guns, but I was attacked in a very similar fashion (see my comment below), and a gun wouldn’t have done shit for me…I was knocked out before I even knew I was in any danger. If I had a gun on me it would’ve been in my pocket or elsewhere while I got my ass beat on the ground. This happened to me — I understand the reality of it, and everyone leaving comments advocating guns is clueless about the reality of this kind of situation. Even if they failed to knock me out so quickly, it was still three against one, so following your logic that everyone should be armed just means it would be one guy against three….so absolutely no advantage and a great possibility for murder or serious injury. You may feel powerful with your gun, but you’re just an ignorant fool.

      • lan

        Situational awareness – get your nose out of your cellphone and observe your surroundings at all times.

      • Linger_Longer

        So in your opinion it is better for the woman in this story to be armed with a cellphone rather than a handgun as she helplessly watches a group of savages unmercifully beat her male companion?
        Or did I simply miss the official Leftist memo that Caucasians who exercise their Second Amendment Right to protect themselves are actually hooded Klansmen?

      • unclass

        No question that packing may not help if you get sucker-punched and end up on the ground and/or knocked out from the get go. And yes, the perp may well steal your gun while your out. The hope is that some bystander who is packing can stop the attack; i would like to think that my instincts would be to help out whether armed or not. There needs to be a rash of armed citizens stopping these thugs in their tracks with a double-tap to the chest; only when the people fight back will these stories start turning out differently. These thugs are cowards that prey on the old/weak; when the first perp drops, the others will retreat.

      • Scott Stevens

        Thomas, the lineal thinker, because you were ambushed does not mean that everyone will be. True, if one is carrying and is incapacitated before he can present the weapon then it will not help him. In many cases, one has the time and simply presenting that weapon will deter the attacker. So, in your thinking, if I’m attacked by three primates and I bring my .45 to bear, you think they’re going to rush me? Who wants to die first? This guy would have been justified in blowing out the brainpan of either of these dog sh!+ pile attackers.

      • John C

        Always be aware of your surroundings. If you aren’t you could be terribly surprised. If you were aware, looked aware and armed they would not have attacked you. They only attack those they perceive to be vulnerable.

      • Jason

        Sometimes you just get the raw end of the deal but atleast you would not go down defenceless. And you may cause them to think twice about doing this to someone else. Give them an education and maybe save someone elses life. That is what it is about. Remember when you point your finger at a fool and call them that, you have three fingers pointing back at you.

      Sharp ton and holder will come after you for being racist and not taking your beating like good little children. Institutionalize racism is here.

  • CVilleLad

    I have had some great experiences with C-Ville cops. One officer named Will is a great example. However, I will say that from my experience working on the Mall, every time that I needed police they took an embarassingly long time to respond. I can think of two or three ready examples of this – including an incident when a guy was brandishing a knife.

  • c’ville girl

    I am not surprised by the incident or the police dept.s lack of enthusiasm. We now live in a society where we have to protect ourselves. When paying customers stop visiting the downtown area or a victim with better connections is assaulted, I am confident it will get the attn of our city employees and businesses.

  • Former Cville Resident

    Groups of black males going around and beating up smaller whites has been going on for years. I didn’t realize how bad the racism was toward whites wa until I move out of Cville. It’s horrible but it’s true. Cville police did nothin then and they will do nothing now because they are scared of looking like racists themselves. If they do start cracking down then the entire black community will cry profiling foul like black people are incapable of committing crimes or something. It’s ridiculous. It’s not like this everywhere. The black on white racism is particularly bad in Cville. You all know it but I guess I have to be the one to say it.

    • Rhonda Thissen

      Why are people making this a racial issue? Just because a black man attacks a white man doesn’t mean it was a race-based crime. Some people are just assholes.

      • Former Oakland resident

        Because sometimes it IS a racial issue. A black man attacking a white man may not be, but THREE black men at 6′ tall beating a white man and woman is a racial issue. Being a sheep and denying that wolves exist doesn’t mean that there are no wolves.

        • Rhonda Thissen

          Again, there is no proof or indicator that this was anything more than a crime of opportunity. The victims happened to be vulnerable and these knuckleheads took advantage of that. Unless they were yelling racial slurs during the attack, there is no need to inject race into this situation.

          • John Prewett

            yep, a “liberal.” Ashamed to be Caucasion. Cause we honkies been soooo bad and oppressive. We really deserve it,… don’t we Rhonda ?

          • Treezy

            Youre should be ashamed. It has been done other places by people that were white. This case just happened to be black males. Grow up

          • disqus_DLuN45o5io

            I have heard of one case in which the assailant was white. I have heard of over 20 cases in which the assailant was black. Also, when the white boy did it, he admitted to the cops that part of his reasoning was to see if he would get charged with a hate crime. Sure enough he was within a week by the Justice Dept, not local state cops.
            You were saying???????

          • ALD

            Would you be so quick to aim that opinion in the other direction if 3 white youths decided to assault a black couple? Race is not the issue here. The issue at hand is that 2 people were unjustly attacked in an area that is supposed to be safe and little to nothing has been done to bring the offenders to justice. Justice is the law that distinguishes between right and wrong. I’m angry that good people can not walk down the street without fear, not that what the skin color of the offender is.

          • wial

            I was mugged on the Mall by whites. To be sure the cops moved fast on that one but I think it was because the perps didn’t leave and were operating during mid evening hours. As for the cops doing nothing in this case, please do read the article — although admittedly public outcry like this might be a better disinfectant than the strategy they employed.

          • blahblahblah

            Sorry, but race is an issue because this is not an isolated example, this is going on all over the country, and its almost always black on white. Burying your head in the sand is not going to change that reality.

          • wial

            Yes. Yes we have. Whites aren’t the only racists, but two wrongs don’t make a right. No one deserves to be the victim of racism just as no one deserves rape. Jumping to the conclusion that this is a racial crime when all indications are it was an economic crime is racism. So please stop.

          • Citizenright

            Why is it racism? Isn’t it more accurately described as ” prejudiced”?

          • joeblow

            “economic crime”?? nothing was stolen, what are you babbling on about?

          • no1g8r

            What evidence is there of an economic crime? The victim threw her purse at them in hopes that they would see the cash, take it, and leave, but they did not seem interested in the cash. From her description, it was a form of entertainment to the thugs that beat them.

          • notsorandompost

            What indicates that it was a robbery? I saw no mention of anything being stolen. In fact, she specifically said that they were not interested in her purse and they did not steal the phone.

          • disqus_DLuN45o5io

            There was no robbery and they beat up hippie type artsyfcks, who usually aren’t known for carrying money.

          • Lawrence

            Economic crime? She makes perfectly clear they had no interest in taking any money. She threw her purse at them and they ignored it! Have you been following the Knockout viral videos all over Youtube? They are black-on-white, period.

          • 46blitz

            What was the indication that it was economic? The vic said they didn’t want her valuables or money.

          • James Brooks

            And just what part of this story led you to believe that this was an “economic crime”? I don’t remember hearing that they robbed anybody. They simply BEAT THE SPIT OUT OF HIM! It was most definitely a racial crime, and I dare say a “hate crime”, even though we have been informed by Obama and Holder, that Black people cannot be found guilty of a hate crime because they were most probably antagonized by years of racial inequality.

          • JohnM

          • blahblahblah

            The overwhelming number of these knockout attacks have been black on white, spare me the “yelling racial slurs “crap, If things were reversed , and it was largely gangs of whites victimizing blacks, people like you wouldn’t hesitate to say it was racially motivated.

          • disqus_DLuN45o5io

            That is coming. It is called ‘blowback’.

          • Pro_sanity

            “overwhelming number” I think 100%.

          • no1g8r

            According to the US Department of Justice’s Uniform Crime Reports, a black person is 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white person than a white person is to commit a violent crime against a black person.

            I guess white people create more “opportunities” for black people than vice versa. A LOT more.

          • disqus_DLuN45o5io

            Most of us do not speak ebonics and thus do not know what is being screamed at us while being beaten for walking down the street.

        • Common Sense

          So, what you’re saying, is that at a certain number of assailants it shifts from being random to racial?

          Yes that makes sense.

          Time to get your learn on.

          A formal fallacy is an error in logic that can be seen in the argument’s form.[1] All formal fallacies are specific types of non sequiturs.

          Fallacy of the single cause (causal oversimplification[27]) – it is assumed that there is one, simple cause of an outcome when in reality it may have been caused by a number of only jointly sufficient causes.

      • Keith Drake

        Don’t be an idiot Rhonda. Follow President Obama’s example: if a crime involves two different races of people that automatically defines it as a racial issue.

        • Gina

          I bet you think you actually changed minds with the words you chose.. Pity. You had a chance here to make your point with intelligence.. Instead, you delivered your message like a marketing representative for PETA: SO OUTRAGEOUS AND BELLIGERENT, no one cares what the content of your actual opinion, is.

        • Bill Davis

          We have no idea how many crimes similar to this one happen in a black on black situation. This may be because they dont have health insurance or maybe because they feel as if they are at fault from putting themselves in danger. Either way, just becasue we dont hear about things doesnt mean they aren’t happening. People have to understand that although we do live in quite a safe place, if you are intoxicated and walking down the street at 1am, you are vulnerable, and you could get hurt. This world isn’t, nor will it ever be, a place where someone can feel safe in the middle of the night in a city. Although this is sad, it is the truth. People take more risks in life than they realize.

        • Brad L

          I agree Keith, but in the case of Supreme Dictator 0bama, it is only a racial crime if it’s white against a black, not the other way around.

        • mike021

          Really Keith. Obama said that if a victim and an assailant are of two different races that “automatically” makes it a hate crime? Funny, I believe that the Justice Dept. looked into the Trayvon Martin case before it went to trial and decided not to bring federal hate crime charges against Zimmerman because of the lack of evidence of it being a hate crime as defined by federal statute. Can you provide an example of the Justice Dept under Obama’s administration going the other way and bringing federal hate crime charges against an accused “automtatically” because the victim and the accused were of different races? In the absence of such an example I would say your comment make you the idiot.

      • BobbyBurnpile

        Keep that head buried comfortably in the sand, Rhonda.

      • Jessie James

        Because HOLDER, OBAMA and the DOJ are now prosecuting a white man for a racial crime, for beating a black person in this horrible game while shouting racial epithets, and deservedly so. BUT I guarantee, that had their been video of this beat down, the black a-holes would have been shouting racial garbage while giving this “honkie” a beat down. Stop being so naive Rhonda. This is a pure race crime. Period.

      • Brad L

        You really are naive. Have you seen all the news about the knockout game? 99.9% is blacks against whites. It is clearly racial.

        • Common Sense

      • Linger_Longer

        Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.

        Blacks are three times more likely to use a hand gun, and twice more likely to use a knife.

        Hispanics commit three times more violent crimes than whites, but the statistics are nebulous because sometimes they are classified as white, so it could be far higher.

        The best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percent of the population that is black and Hispanic.

        Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit a robbery.

        Forty-five percent of black crime is against whites, 43 against other blacks, and 10 percent against Hispanic.

        I have a striking income disparity. I am poor. But I take personal responsibility for that fact. It has not become my excuse to prey on others. I am a white elderly man with Christian values. Why do Liberals constantly try to find excuses for what is an inherently violent race?

    Appalling behavior from CPD. And we were actually hoping they might finally help us w/ a robbery that happened to a family member over Thanksgiving. Surely that’s not happening if they won’t even get off their butts to help find these guys. Despicable.

  • Future resident?

    As someone who is actively planning a move to the Charlottesville area this summer, I find the information in this article about lack of police response extremely disturbing. It truly makes me wonder if we are making the right decision about a move to Charlottesville. Crime happens, but it is additionally unsettling if you can’t even count on the police to follow up on a major assault.

    • Cville no more

      Charlottesville has a disproportionate amount of black crime for a city of this size. This has been going on for years. It is the reason I moved away from Charlottesville several years ago. It used to be the assholes wearing oversized white t-shirts who would wander the streets looking for someone to assault. My have a right to defend yourself. If I were ever in the situation that this couple were in, there would be a couple funerals. If the good, law abiding citizens exercised their right to bear arms, these piece of shit thugs might not be so quick to randomly attack. At the very least, we could thin them out. Society would be a better place.

      • common sence

        And after they sneak attack you and pick your pockets. You just gave them your murder weapon.

        • Mike Wright

          The “don’t be armed they are going to take your gun” argument has been debunked many times. The statistics do not support that position, AT ALL.

    • Cville Reality

      It’s just like everywhere… don’t count on the police to protect you. Charlottesville is a great place and very safe. You probably might not want to live downtown however… it’s getting overrun by homeless and folks like the ones in this story. However, if you are prone to going out and walking the mall or anywhere at 1am you should be on guard. Would you do any less in any other city?

    • Norm Alinmostways

      Anyone who relies on the police for protection of family or self is a fool. They will NEVER be their in time.

    Going to the Mall after dark? Be prepared to defend yourself. Unless you’re some kind of Martial Arts whiz, you should take my friend Sam Colt as your companion

    • Thomas Hall

      Please read my comment on my attack and reevaluate your simplistic solution. I don’t agree with you at all. Clearly you lack a sense of reality when it comes to firearm use in such a situation. And as another commenter (Alex) wrote: you need to REALLY know what you’re doing to be able to use a firearm in this situation to avoid (A) having the gun taken away from you and used against you or (B) firing and hitting an innocent bystander. The notion that simply having a gun and a few sessions of target practice will make you an expert at hand-to-hand combat and able to take down several assailants is flat out absurd.

  • Damnyankees

    This has been going on for years in C-ville

  • Taylor Greenwood

    Its kind of shocking to see how many are surprised by the failings of the police department, although it is encouraging to see some suggesting to carry in order to defend oneself, which is a separate, albeit, perhaps a more important issue – responsibility and what not. This is the inevitable result of a monopoly of a service, in this case protection, or defense. While one could hire body guards, there only remains one party for dispute resolution, and “law enforcement.” Through competition this sector would be vastly improved, imagine peace officers, not police officers, who actually ‘serve & protect.’ Imagine being able to call a respectful, helpful dispatcher who could accurately predict a time of response, which would give you the option of calling their competition if they were too slow. Imagine non-violent officers who treated their customers with respect, both victim and suspect. Imagine actually being innocent before proven guilty. This is what a free market in defense/protection would look like, as customers would naturally purchase the services of superior companies, companies which satisfy the demands of their customers in order to survive, not rely upon the crutch of the state through subsidies, and ultimately the theft of individuals money. A police department with an app, which displays its statistics, accepts reports, and emergency calls; a whole new meaning to “call 911,” one day.

    • standard citizen

      Your brother ryan is a rapist douche and I wouldn’t be surprised if you were too. If your the greenwoods that I’ve heard of… Your mother should be ashamed.

For years.There can’t be one cop, visible, walking a beat?You wont see it at night, when needed. I wont speculate on the perps motives, except to say (and i am a Democratic Party voter, btw) Black on White racism is alive and well in Cville.

  • Belmont Resident

    What’s most concerning is you almost have to be a victim in these situations unless you are some kind of MMA master. Had Adams been carrying legally, and perhaps shot and killed one of these assailants, he would no longer be the victim and would probably face trial for murder. I have a license and am highly trained, but would never carry downtown after dark. The cards are heavily stacked in favor of these hooligans…you are better off just taking a beating should you find yourself in this kind of unfortunate situation.

    • Cville no more

      Take a beating? Are you shitting me? I also have a CC license and am highly trained. The reason I have a license and am highly trained is so I can protect myself in the event I encounter any animals like these guys. God forbid it ever gets to that point, but I am prepared. More people should be.

  • Citizen

    I’ve often been asked why I feel the need to be armed while on the Mall. This is a case in point. These racist punks would have had their asses shot for their trouble.

      Just for giggles… what does the law in Virginia say about folks who shoot other folks in public when it’s self defense? I could imagine that this would get pretty hairy… and I come from a state where the gun laws are nice and lax but I have heard worse about how it is to protect yourself in any way with a firearm in Virginia. I am authentically curious as I am planning on getting my CCL here soon and want to know whether to pistol whip or to pull if the time ever comes that I need to…

    @Belmont Resident. Seriously? This was clearly a life threatening situation. The man could have been KILLED. I’d rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6 any day.

    • Belmont Resident

      I would rather not be judged by 12 or carried by 6, and that’s why I don’t go downtown late at night with or without a concealed weapon. I’m not going to put myself in a situation where I very well might have to use a weapon in self-defense. Unfortunately, it is quite possible that you will be confronted walking around the downtown mall at 1:00am, it’s just the reality of what this area has become.

      • Citizen

        I also try my best to avoid putting myself in a situation that is potentially dangerous. I don’t go on the Mall late myself, however, you never know when trouble is going to find you, despite your best efforts. In this case the victim was out that late because he had been working.

      • Cville Reality

        Agree with Belmont


    This looks like a racial crime to me…

  • Harry Faulkner

    What happened to foot and bike police patrolling the mall? A native C-villian,I live up here in Alexandria now and I will tell you that down in Old Town (our ‘Mall’) at night, you will see at least one patrol car circle by every 10 minutes. And bike&motorbike cops keep an eye on the pedestrian areas all the time-night and day. If Charlottesville is too broke to pay for police to do these things, they need to take a look at funding priorities. Inexcusable.

    • wial

      Quite so. Being knee-jerk anti-government-spending (which has been code for white racism since at least Barry Goldwater’s time) has its consequences.

    • Wha? Chinango

      The most sensible response so far. Leave the bigger political and racial stuff out of it. This represents a tremendous failure of the Cville Police –allowing a climate to exist on the mall where this type of brazen attack would occur. And it’s reprehensible that it’s just appearing now. It sucks when it happens anywhere but this the commercial zone that beckons to the general public. If it isn’t policed then the future of Charlottesville is Stonefield; and that’s not part of the Charlottesville tax base.

        you’re correct. you shouldn’t carry a weapon.
        I would chose to do so and try to defend myself.
        You shouldn’t let anyone get near you and blah, blah blah about situational awareness. The woman could easily have shot the attackers if she was close enough to take a cell phone pic then just aim at center mass and pull trigger. 90% of all gun fights are at 3 yards or less and 80% of civilian fights are at one yard . the common statement 3 yards, 3 seconds, 3 shots is the usual .

    • wial

      Then several people who might have done a lot of good in their lives, including the thugs, the victims and bystanders might have died, and the Mall would have been scarred forever.

  • reality

    Reading the comments is as chilling as reading the article. Pack your city council meeting, demand answers. Contact downtown merchants and let them know you intend to press this issue in the media and that their economic well being is on the line. The first issue is police response. A community wide response is in order, without that, you are lost. Btw, everyone should read the FBI statistics on crime in America. They are reality, google them, read the stats for murders and aggravated assault. Is it racist to point out that 48% of murders and 65% of aggravated assaults are committed by a certain segment of the population? Is it racist that 65% of the victims happen to be of another group? Or I’d it just the facts?

    • wial

      In answer to your question, not necessarily but generally, yes, yes it is racist.

  • Carpenter Maass

    I’m not sure I buy this story; black on white crime is incredibly rare and I
    find it highly unlikely that all three perpetrators would be black as
    well. Statistics alone will show that violent crime is committed
    overwhelmingly by white males, mostly of Jewish descent. Also, the pictures are too blurry… the attackers appear to be Indian, probably from Southern India.

    • reality

      You are wrong. Google FBI crimes statistics. The vast majority of black crime is on those of a different race. I was surprised myself. Please googled it. 48% of murders in 2012 were committed by blacks and 65% of the victims were white. It is a sad reality.

    I was in a similar situation with some friends on the downtown mall. I don’t know if my buddy provoked them or not but I walked out of the Jefferson and saw him on the ground getting kicked repeatedly and in the face. I was intoxicated and brought them both to the ground and fought them off. I was screaming at them as they ran and was quickly detained and arrested whilst they got away. Although I was not charged for anything I was baffled by the fact that I had to stay in the drunk tank and miss work while the culprits got away. Even when everyone who was around backed my story. Also lost my glasses and my hat… I loved that hat! My knife was kept by the police.

  • S

    That’s why I don’t go downtown ever!! It’s not a safe place!

  • HoosGirl2004

    My little brother had something very similar happen a little over a year ago…again with several black men jumping him and his friend, both of whom ended up in the hospital. The CPD were able to find and charge of them but not the other two. Pretty scary and sad that Charlottesville is experiencing this type of violence. Might these be filed under hate crimes? Black men beating up white men? I suppose we won’t hear from Rev Jessie Jackson about this incident. Shameful.

    • cointelanalyst

      happened to my little brother too in the WDC area. him and his white friends were eating dinner at a McDs and some black thugs juts randomly punched them sending them to the hospital. they were targeted because they were white and looked like rich kids.

  • Ella

    I feel horribly for Marc and Miss Doucette, but also for the businesses of the Downtown Mall. After reading this, I have no desire to dine, shop, or walk the Mall ever again. This will truly hurt them, and the police are just standing by.

      I guess this raises a question: could some suburban mall developer be paying off the police to do nothing?

    Everyone should simply stop going to the downtown mall. The businesses will force the CPD to actually have enough manpower to make the place safe. Otherwise let the fools play “knockout” against each other.

  • M

    How dare you criticize the police. I admit not all officers are proactive but the same can be said about doctors, lawyers, priests, etc. do you have any idea how often this kind of attack occurs in an evening? Are you a police officer? A detective? If not, don’t assume you could do their job better.

    As someone who works and hangs out downtown, where are the other people? the mall is not empty at 1 am especially places like blue light which you can clearly see in the photos. If there was yelling why didn’t anyone hear it? a lot of the commentors do not seem like people that do the downtown late night scene of which marc is well known in. it seems odd that the mall was completely devoid of people…. just saying

  • GaGa

    The crime is vicious and horrible. Almost as disturbing is the fact that the C’ville Police and local media have not made us aware of this before now. It took the victim to bring this to our attention. Making news of this attack could not only help lead to arrests, but also help citizens be more aware to prevent such. And shame on the local media! When I think of the tepid lead stories we’ve seen on local TV news in the past 10 days since this abomination occurred makes me sick. They need to look for news, not just report what has been spoon fed to them.

    “I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give thanks for the great contributions of the Black community to our society. Their peaceful and generous nature make them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their exceptional family values and parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture. Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a people.

    Real estate values are fueled by the mix of African Americans into an area due to their caring and respectful nature of these communities, an example of all they have achieved through their enthusiasm for hard work and self-reliant can-do nature. Without their industrious and creative drive, we would be poorer as a nation.”

    Be careful of what you come away from this with. I have several very good friends that are black, they are the best friends I could ask for. So don’t spew racist hatred due to actions of a group of black thugs. Instead, protect yourself. Defend your right to carry a handgun. And keep one in the car if not on your person. But beware – if you use it in this instance, the media will demonize you like they did George Zimmerman. But better than being brain damaged.

        • doubleducks

          Then make that clear. Read the other messages, They are an insult to Caucasians to react this way. People would be much more affected if you would put the blame where it belongs – on a sick black culture that Jesse and Al won’t talk about but infects the youth. Listen to Cosby or Ben Carson to hear a black man tell the truth about the sick black ghetto culture that promotes violence, misogynistic, drug-dealing, hatred of education, lack of parental responsibility, parasitic lifestyle. This is the disease.

          • doubleducks

            I understand now, and agree. But the liberals will mis-characterize your statements as racist – you know that. And then you become ineffective in influencing others. Be clear – the blame is the sick black ghetto culture, promoted by Hollywood, promoted by liberals as cool. Yet keeps the young blacks in chains and hate. Anger in America needs to be directed at the liberal media and liberal politicians.

    Has it occurred to you that these instances of black on white hate crimes have increased significantly in number over the last year? And that Obama and Holder look the other way? And this is even in the face of the media trying to ignore it as well (seen this report on NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS? nope). While any defense by a white (Zimmerman, although he is Hispanic) is demonized?

    OK, so the take-away is that the Obama administration WANTS you to be racist, to over-react. This will give Obama the moral authority (in the eyes of enough institutuions with power) to declare martial law or some sort of control. Don’t fall for it.

    Blame the perps, not their race.

        It is truly sad that all “blacks” come under that descriptive term when there is a word that is available to describe those in that racial group are lawless, ignorant, vulgar, anti-social, etc. but now is restricted from “nice” society. Most ethnic groups have similar decsriptives for those in their group that are also ignoranct, vulgar, lawless. For “blacks” like Dr Carson, Rep West, Judge Thomas, Prof Sowell, etc to be grouped in this group is unfair to them and their families that contribute positively to our society and mankind.

  • Nutzi Pelosi

    Eric Holder and his Justice Department will get right on it…all they need is one picture showing the white man trying to defend himself and Holder will file hate crime charges against him for attempted harm on a protected species the “Feral Urban Thug Chimp” an indigenous species primarily located in large urban areas throughout North America.

    • Freiburg

      These thugs are angry products of random sperm donors – not fathers to teach or to be role models. There are many black families (reads: married men and women with children) striving to raise their youngsters properly. Some years ago in Africa young bull elephants were relocated. They proceeded to terrorize other animals including rhinos and hippos. Reason: they hadn’t been taught how to behave. When adult bulls were brought in, they forcefully taught the young bulls how to act. “Natural Law”.

  • Kai is your guy

    The majority of this racial violence comes from young, Black-males; so, enforcing gun control within that community is called for —not the rest of us. Voluntary segregation is not only moral but necessary for our survival.

    Another example of the rampant surge in “reverse” racism.

Just like he won’t come out condemning the levels of black on black crime in places like his hometown (I use the term very loosely) of Chicago. Dozens of young black males can be murdered at the hands of their own during a weekend but only school shootings are enough to get him to jump on his phony soap-box for gun control (so the citizens of this country can’t be armed and revolt against his communist policies).

    Whity needs to start packing and start shooting these niggers. They are not blacks, they are niggers who because of dear leader feel they can and do get away with anything they care to do. White people rise up, Shoot these nig nogs before it gets worse..

  • RightStuff

    Leftist political policies have nurtured and encouraged this sort of behavior. Blacks have been the Democrat party’s permanent underclass since they were convinced that Republicans have kept them down. In actuality, and by every metric, the blacks have lost ground under the messiah’s reign. The blacks are simply not intelligent enough to understand that. Their blind adherence to the Democrat “line” shows the failure to understand even their own best interests.

    • doubleducks

      Now you are putting the blame where it belongs. Liberals have taught the young blacks to hate whites. And then associate white with Republican. That was their trick – and it has worked as 90% of blacks reflexively vote democrat. So when some blacks feel frustrated – as we all do in life at times – they resort to blaming whites, any whites – of course, that is the very definition of racism. So the liberal democrats have fostered a sense of racism and dependency in the black culture. Liberal democrat politicians are sick, pathological, even psychopathic. Americans have not caught on yet. But then, psychopathy is hard to detect if you are not aware of its insidious nature.

    Could this POSSIBLY be a “hate” crime? Naw, didn’t think so. Jus’ some bro’s havin’ a little fun in the hood. Disgusting.

    You really can’t blame the CPD. They’re too busy going undercover to arrest underage girls buying* water at Harris Teeter.

  • Jason

    These people are black in the photos, if they were white Home Land security and every other agency of the DOJ would have a massive manhunt for them. And hate crimes a plenty for then also. Remember how the white guy just recently for this same thing has been charged with a hate crime, and it was heralded from the roof tops to boot.

      That is why white people need to go whip some damn ass and take names. these little thugs to stupid to realize they only 12% of the population, white people are 72%…

  • Jason Hartpence

    A hate crime? Not a chance, if a black attacks a white – no problem. However, if a white attacks black – HATE CRIME, put him away for 13 years or so. What a society. 90% of these “game” victims are white and the perps are black – no hate crime here. Just ask or black Attorney General ‘brother Holder’.

    • Honest American

      For sure. The perp was black the victim was white, no hate crime charges will be filed by Eric Holder like when he over stepped in and did to the white kid in Texas. It only applies to whites.

  • doubleducks

    Well, the victims should have told the police they were participating in an LGBT parade. The perps would have been arrested and sentenced to life.

    No doubt, one of the reasons police are refusing to prosecute mass numbers of black on white crimes (‘knock out game’) is due to an order Obama signed years earlier telling officials not to prosecute bad / illegal behavior by blacks –>

  • Carol Lightfoot

    The blacks know there will be no punishment, cuz Holder is on their side of social justice (they’ve been on the plantations working so hard) so when they escaped the slave holder, they had frustration and had to blow off steam. If we kill a few “white honky crackers” on the way, no problem!!!

    Look at the FBI crime tables But remember that when one crime is reported another 4 to 5 go unreported. And also remember that the liberals who run every major urban center where these feral chimps wreak havoc unreport or disguise the race of the attacker to victim. Also the FBI is run by Obama and the left and the FBI has been sugar coating attacks by blacks on white for years now. In fact the only time these stories get real attention is when like in NY the victims are Liberal Jews, or homosexuals who support the The President. If you are a white heterosexual male or female it is open season on you by these feral chimps. My advice move to more rural areas with majority white populations and you will find out what it is like to live again.

  • SandyH20

    The RACIST Eric Holder and the JustUs Dept only charge whites with hate crimes.

  • mitch_Pawl

    Why would there be any charges filed against this black man. There is no such thing as a hate crime when a black either kills or beats the crap out of a white person.

    Hate crimes are only white on black, not black on white.

  • K9_00BK

    Can’t help but wonder here Eric Holder and his Department of Injustice is. White hits black in Texas and Holder is all over it. like white on snow. In Blue State Minnesota, black on white beating with a night stick along with threats that “I’m going to kill you” is called assault. Holder must be on vacation with his master. There is no “Law of the Land” in America.

  • TBPollock

    This isn’t Bush’s fault. It isn’t America’s fault. It isn’t slavery’s fault. It isn’t racism’s fault. It’s the pandering, patronizing indulgence of modern Liberalism’s fault and its defenders are still legion.

    Another example of a hate crime. The hate crime of Obama’s Justice Department continuing to ignore the black on white hate crimes that continue to occur. NEVER a prosecution of black on white assaults. EVER. Of course I am I am sure a racist for pointing out that OBAMA IS A RACIST. I wonder if we will ever get a Justice Department that actually gives a damn about EVERYONE. Not just OBAMA’s folks.

  • Mr. Work for it.

    I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give
    thanks for the many great contributions of the Black community and their
    culture to our society. Their peaceful and generous nature make them ideal
    neighbors, lending testimony to their exceptional family values and
    parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture. Their commitment to
    academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who
    hope to achieve prominence as a people. Real Estate values are fueled by
    the influx of African Americans into an area due to their caring and respectful
    nurturing of these communities, an example of all they have achieved by their
    enthusiasm for self-improvement through hard work and a self-reliant can-do
    nature. Without their industrious and creative drive, we would be poorer,
    as a nation.

    Presently enriching the cites of Spokane WA, Chicago IL, Philadelphia PA,
    Washington DC, St. Louis MO, New Orleans LA, Los Angeles CA, Flint MI,
    Baltimore MD, Pontiac MI, Gary Ind, Newark NJ, Cleveland OH, Atlanta GA,
    Richmond VA, Memphis TN, Birmingham AL, New York NY, and let’s not forget
    Detroit, the tourism capital of the World!!!!!!

    Why no arrests? Why don’t you ask Eric Holder? He is the one that has determined if whites were the attackers it’s a hate crime punishable by the federal government but if it’s found to be blacks doing the assault, then it’s just a bunch of boys being boys and we should forget all about it. Another of Eric Holder’s racist moves in the Just Us Department while he lies for and protects Barack Hussein.

  • The_Saxon

    Maybe there’s a secret network encouraging this in the black communities as “payback” for Trayvon? In the DEA sponsored/run drug networks maybe? Maybe encouraging this to provoke a “gun” reaction to once again provide fodder for disarming the American public? Possibly another type of “fast n’ furious’ to provoke a “gun” reaction? Either way, arm yourself, get yourself trained, take boxing, the Muay Thai type “kickboxing,” Judo or Brazilian (Judo) Jui-juitsu, then buy videos that teach using a knife if you don’t have an instructor that will, and carry pepper spray!!! Or try a “PeaceKeeper” Expandable Baton.

    A.G. Eric Holder has repeatedly proven himself to be a champion of color blind justice, and will assist local authorities in any way he can, to bring the hooligans responsible for this wanton abuse of humanity.
    Local citizens need to be reassured that it is safe to walk the streets in peace an harmony with their fellow man, and feel no retribution based on ones ethnicity.

Use the same precautions you would take in FLA, Venezuela, Brazil, Mexico… New Orleans….

    But Where is holder ? Isn’t he going to dedicate federal resources to finding and charging the perpetrators in this horrible hate crime?
    I wonder if this will be enough for the couple to go out and get side arms and carry permits ?
