+1They're all frickin' 15 years old; boys and girls acting like thugs. Groups of 10-20 jumping on people who were alone, beating and robbing them. Pathetic. There's a reason my hand subtly slips under my shirt at times.
While most of the time they're the same race, a group of thug pieces of shit is a group of thug pieces of shit to me.A very sanitized article, No mention as to the race of the subjects. ....... No, Couldn't be that!!!
http://www.humanevents.com/2013/07/19/black-americas-real-problem-isnt-white-racism/After researching the FBI numbers for “Suicide of a Superpower,” this writer concluded: “An analysis of ‘single offender victimization figures’ from the FBI for 2007 finds blacks committed 433,934 crimes against whites, eight times the 55,685 whites committed against blacks. Interracial rape is almost exclusively black on white — with 14,000 assaults on white women by African Americans in 2007. Not one case of a white sexual assault on a black female was found in the FBI study.”
Though blacks are outnumbered 5-to-1 in the population by whites, they commit eight times as many crimes against whites as the reverse. By those 2007 numbers, a black male was 40 times as likely to assault a white person as the reverse.
If interracial crime is the ugliest manifestation of racism, what does this tell us about where racism really resides — in America?
Nobody I know who carries cares about that DCR restriction or whatever it is. Completely ignored.Oh attacks on Boston Common you say? gee i wonder if the attackers are aware that its against the law to carry a gun on the common so all their victims will be defensless? Arn't gun free zones great?
Get with the program -- only whites can be racists.A very sanitized article, No mention as to the race of the subjects. ....... No, Couldn't be that!!!
Nope, not at all. There is a lot of shopping, offices, and some luxury condos in that area. It is right across the common from Beacon Hill. The Four Seasons Hotel and Taj Boston (two of the most expensive hotels in Boston) are a few blocks away.I have only been to Boston less than 10 times in the past 50 years, so I don't know it.
Were these attacks in the ghetto or what type of area?
Similar stuff is going on all over the country. Much of it is ignored by the media.They're all frickin' 15 years old; boys and girls acting like thugs. Groups of 10-20 jumping on people who were alone, beating and robbing them. Pathetic. There's a reason my hand subtly slips under my shirt at times.
It's not really enforceable. It's a, if you are here with a gun, please don't be or your trespassing, BS thing. Concealed is concealed - until I need it to defend me and mine, or some obvious victim of a violent crime being committed before my eyes.Mike and LenS is that an actual enforceable thing? No guns there? Our is this just an unenforceable sign in Mass you're deal?
Well, I never ever heard about it until it was brought up here a short time ago.Mike and LenS is that an actual enforceable thing? No guns there? Our is this just an unenforceable sign in Mass you're deal?
Sorry but that book isn't a great source, unless you use it to justify what you already think of course then any number of black on white crimes = evidence of an epidemic. Yes, it's Salon but when you're using a source more biased you fight fire with fire and right wing sources aren't going to point it out.I agree that thug pieces of shit are thug pieces of shit. That being said we do know the vast numbers of these kind of attacks are Black on white and the media is not reporting it as such. Ref, the book, White Girl bleed A Lot.
You and me both. I used to love going into the city for the nightlife, restaurants, etc.
You pussy, you'd be just as good a target as any of the other victims.“It was weird. They would follow him, this whole swarm,’’ McNamara said. “At one point, they just came up to me, but they were totally focused on this guy. I was right there, I could have touched him. [But] I didn’t like the odds at all. I was just standing there motionless.’’
I witnessed the attack on arch street. To me it was a very clear case of a targeted attack on a white man. I was walking down Arch st after getting off the red line and stumbled across what appeared to be the beginning of the scuffle. I thought at first it was a fight between two people but shortly after realized that wasn't the case when I saw at least 8 teenagers swarming the one guy. I heard the teenagers shouting things such as "get that white b*tch" and it appeared that they were attacking him, not only to mug him, but for the 'thrill'. At one point the man who was being attacked was running down arch st toward the CVS on summer st (I couldn't tell if he was trying to get away of chasing one of the gang that had stolen something from him) but he fell and the gang again converged on him and proceeded to stomp on his head while he was down. These thugs showed no regard for this guys life, and I am confident that had it been a black man leaving the arch st building where the attack started they would have kept moving to the next target. (oh and for those asking that havent figured it out - the entire gang was black and the man was white in the attack that I witnessed)
Same here. Too old for that $hit nowYou and me both. I used to love going into the city for the nightlife, restaurants, etc.
Changes in parking meter laws (to 8PM), unarmed robbery by parking garages, grid-lock driving, etc. just took all the joy out of heading into the city for anything.
ETA: Even at night, road construction frequently means losing 1-2 lanes and further grid-lock traffic getting out of town late at night. Just not worth the hassle and expense.
