Guess what’s missing from this news report on a “roving pack of teens” who attacked innocent concert goers in NJ:
Authorities says a pack of roving teens waged a two-minute crime spree that left five people robbed and beaten following a concert in New Jersey’s largest city.
The wave of violence broke out as nearly 20,000 people left Newark’s Prudential Center after Saturday’s Red Hot Chili Peppers show.
Three teenagers and two adults were targeted, including a 23-year-old Pennsylvania man, who suffered a fractured eye socket.
Newark Police Director Samuel DeMaio tells The Star-Ledger of Newark the suspects appeared to be a band of 10 or 15 “thugs.” No arrests have been made.
If you guessed “a description of the attackers” then you are spot-on. The reason that My Fox NY chose not to give a description of the thugs? Because they were black. I know, right? Feign surprise.
As one commenter mocked:
Beautiful! Just last week the Chili Peppers were putting on ‘hoodies’ to show support for ‘Trayvon’ (NOT for the white boy set on fire for ‘being white, yo’) and then this week their hoodie-partners are taking advantage of their fans. Ironic?
Again — this is why I never go out in public without my handgun (and CHL). You never know when these rabid pack animals will attack. If a single one of those victims…or a single honest and armed citizen had been there, well…things would have turned out quite a bit different. Yeah…I’m saying someone should have shot them.
You know where you almost never hear about roving packs of black teenagers attacking innocent citizens? Places like Texas, where the second amendment right to keep and bare arms allows its citizens to be armed and to protect themselves from precisely these kinds of attacks.
Oh, and in case you doubt that the cowardly thugs were black or that the Star Ledger intentionally omitted sharing that fact with their readers:
I called the Star-Ledger and asked if they had a policy of omitting the race of at large crime suspects. The first woman I talked to went to ask her superiors. She came back and told me that there is no formal policy, “but we generally do not publish race.”
I then asked to speak to crime reporter James Queally who wrote Star-Ledgers’ two articles on the attacks.
Queally told me that the police report did list the race of the perpetrators and that he censored this information in his two articles on purpose. He also stated that it was the newspapers’ policy to censor race in crime stories.
Then the conversation took a comedic turn. I asked Queally what race was listed in the police report and he refused to tell me. He also said he interviewed three of the victims, but refused to tell me what race they were. Queally did however volunteer that ”it’s an 80% black area and the concert was full of white rock and roll fans.”
? Queally denied that the attacks were racially motivated. He said that if it was blacks attacking whites, then that was just a factor of probability. Keep in mind that Queally admits knowing the race of the perps and refuses to say.
