AUGUST 24--Police are investigating whether a series of assaults at the Iowa State Fair were racially motivated since the attackers reportedly announced it was “Beat Whitey Night” during one attack.

According to a Des Moines Police Department report, a group of young black assailants pummeled a white fairgoer Friday night, an assault that cops believe may have racial overtones due to what was said by the attackers.

A report by Sgt. David Murillo noted that,“officers at the fairgrounds advise there was a group of 30-40 individuals roaming the fairgrounds openly calling it ‘Beat Whitey Night.’” The victim, 36-year-old Jammie Carroll, suffered “severe injuries to his eyes, cheekbones, and nose,” and was hospitalized at Mercy Medical Center with multiple facial contusions.

Cops are examining other reported incidents at the fairgrounds since groups of black juveniles appeared to be singling out white victims. During one of these confrontations Sunday evening, two police officers were injured trying to break up a brawl (which resulted in five arrests).

A second police report notes that the Sunday incident again involved “a large fight with black male and female juveniles assaulting white citizens."

The motto for the fair, which closed Sunday, was "Non Stop Fun."

For years Iowa was all white, they are now getting their intoduction to blacks.

It could never be a hate crime in the eyes of the Dept of Justice because it was blacks beating up on whites just because of the person being white.

The attorney general admits the hate crime bill will not cover crime against whites, only people with history. More proof of the blatant racism so evident in the obama administration.

That happens to be something I am very interested in. I saw that and watched the video and nowhere does it mention "white". It mentioned soldiers, preachers, security guards, and a few other things...

However, if that were the case, I would fully agree. Reverse Discrimination is absolutely detestable!

It is also a subject I happen to be extremely interested in. If anybody really does have any evidence of that, I would be interested in that.

I personally think it should be "any group, as defined by the perpetrator" (I didn't write that, I read it somewhere years ago... apparently many others feel the same.)

About the original thing, yes that sounds to me like a hate crime. "Beat Whitey Night" sounds very racist to me. Hopefully they will deal with the scum who perpetrated that incident.

Them doing that to another race is no different from another race doing it to them.

And I'm pretty sure the Hate Crime Legislation is set up that way, although if not then I agree that needs to be changed.


Again, I'm pretty sure that if a minority attacks someone BECAUSE they are that (e.g. white) that would also count as a hate crime, under the bill. Because (as far as I know) it doesn't specify which, it only says "if...", so legally it would count.

I haven't sat down and studied the wording, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't specify which groups, only HOW they are grouped.

For example, it doesn't say "blacks", it says "race". It doesn't say "gays" it says "sexual orientation". And so on...

Again I haven't studied the wording, but I'm pretty sure they couldn't get away with something like that. However, if anyone has any evidence to the contrary, please do let me know.

Holder said the hate crime bill would only cover those groups singled out in history. The questioners could not get him to say it covered everyone, he said only those with a history of hate. This is why their has never been a black, hispanic, or muslim convicted of a hate crime. As much as the muslim serviceman hated the non muslims he killed he was not charged with a hate crime, and Holder and his hate crime bill is the reason why.

That's a little bit of a spin on what he said. I don't remember his exact words at the moment, they were similar to that, but in response to something he was asked.

Basically he was responding to something like why does it not cover so-and-so, and that was his response. But of course it doesn't mean that, LOL.

Ok, he was, I believe, referring to homosexuals and other GLBT persons (transsexuals, etc). In other words, persons who do have a history of being hated on, and that some state laws don't do enough about.

But the bottom line is that he did not specify that it doesn't cover a white victim, like that. When I saw your post I was thinking it did (which was why I watched it).

If that really is the case, I do want to know about that.

lighteredknot wrote:

Are you sure about that? I could be wrong but I think there have been.

If you are talking about who I think you are talking about, he was charged under the Military Code.

Keep in mind that the United States Armed Forces has it's own code for dealing with criminal justice matters. To the best of my knowledge hate crimes are not a part of the Military's laws.

If the same thing had happened under civilian jurisdiction I would imagine he would have been charged with a hate crime.

Again, please show me where the law specifically says that it only applies to one race (or one whatever) and not the other.

If that is true I will be so in agreement with you, and so upset at them. And so determined to get that changed.

But I really don't think it is. I don't see how they could get away with wording it like that. And it is very illegal, if it is so. It could probably be struck down. IF it is. But again, I really don't think it is.

But I could be wrong. If I am, I would like to know it. All you have to do is show me SPECIFICALLY where. I would appreciate that information.

I hope I'm not wrong about this. Because if I am that means there really is Reverse Discrimination rampant (even moreso than I thought it was) Of course I would rather know than not know.


So yes, if the hate crime law REALLY DOES cover one race (or whatever) and not the other(s), please show me. I would seriously like to know about that.

Wow. It's plain and simple....they were wrong. Don't act like it hasn't happened to blacks as well.

I just hope the courts give the white guy the jail sentence he deserves for goading those poor youths into attacking him.
