How did you guess? You should write copy for the regime.
After spending his morning helping the elderly and teaching LGBT orphans how to read.
Poor young man taken down in his prime carjacking and thuggery years...what a shame.
101: Right. He was just speeding because he was late for his Advanced Calculus class .
You forgot to mention that he was an aspiring rap singer.
...and they tell us the white sheet was in the trunk of the officers because they were Klan members.
And he loved puppies, kittens, helping old ladies cross the street, delivering meals to elderly shut-ins, teaching people how to read, caring for his mom's pet unicorn.....
I sure hope Mammy has cute pictures of him to show Sharpton.
I was hoping for a bit more 'graphic' video. < ok, that was just wrong.
Hell nah! Let's all jump to bold conclusions!
101: You got it! Good post!
101st Viet Nam '67-'68 several lifetimes ago.
After all, Black Lies Matter
Man are these cops in a bunch of trouble. This young man and the cops know that as soon as they saw he was black he was home free. The young man was protected by Obama's Executive Order - "The Hate Crime Law." If he wants to hit cars head on he can do it and if the cops are dumb enough to arrest him so be it. President Obama would have just pardoned him.
And his rap career was about to take off!
This happened next to my high school and middle school.
Al this man was reaching for his coat that had his ID….. Right Al he's just "Houston College Boy" late for class an just need a reason for being LATE for class…..
I get the sneaky suspicion that race riots are being instigated by the police. I wonder how long it will be before martial law comes or some national police agenda is forced on America at this pace. It seems every day now we get more and more video of something outrageous occurring involving the police and the citizenry. Trust me I'm the last to blame the police because they have an extraordinary difficult job with so many idiots disobeying the law but something is definitely up.

I’d give it a few more years. I’m sure Hillary is entertaining student loan amnesty for more votes. Her staff is probably calculating the numbers of votes as we speak.

More evidence to support reforming the tax system.
Absolutely, there should be a flat tax of 10% of total income, regardless of source (meaning capital gains should be taxed at the same rate) with no deductions or credits of any kind. Having said that the IRS budget cuts and requirements on the USPS of having to fund their pension faster than any other private corporation does are just republican games to make each look like they need to be privatized. But when you look behind the curtain of virtually all privatized deals, you see a significant reduction in service, dramatic reductions in pay for those who do the actual work, ridiculous compensation for the top executives, and unjustified returns on investors. Anyone with a fully functioning brain understands that the two factors that are holding the economy back is the stagnation and in fact reduction in real wages for the people actually doing the work and adding real value and the concentration of wealth. Both have led to significant reductions in real per capita consumption. And for the record it is per capita consumption (aka - demand) that creates jobs, not the wealthy who merely invest in meeting this demand.
Reform? Abolish the IRS.
fair or flat tax will fix it..................
I think a flat sales tax (not a VAT) would the best way to go. The guy buying a Porsche would pay the same rate as the guy buying a used Chevy. This would also mean that all of the people who work (or sell drugs) for cash and don't report the income would finally be paying at least some of "their fair share" when they buy their groceries.
Eliminate all entitlement programs, un-constitutioinal agencies, and useless projects (like studying the mating habits of monkeys on taxpayer dime). Then institute a flat tax. Current tax code is 70,000 pages large. This is a problem that's been created by both parties (none is guiltless) and the current tax system favors specific groups of society - and I wouldn't even say that is the poor. The current tax code is an assault on the middle class (most of which are on W2's - so they can't hide income and have less write off's) and is causing it to shrink. So, we'll end up with really rich and really poor. Originally, I think it was only land owners that paid taxes on the land they owned. As our federal government has created entitlement programs and more ways to spend our money, they had to go after our income and other sources. Shrink the beast, simplify the tax code, and let everyone keep more of their hard earned money and spend it on what they want to spend it on (not what the government dictates we spend it on). National defense and infrastructure is all the Federal government should be concerning themselves with. Infrastructure falls on the States, too (which is why land owners originally paid the taxes - or part of the reason - to develop roads and bridges).

They would be broke.
Of course they would make all of the offenders into Tea Party Conservatives and blame them for the government shutdown.

Always vote no on local ballot measures to raise taxes.
They will always try to tell you it’s for improving schools or public services. Don’t buy that crap. It’s for improving their salaries before anything else. Unfortunately a lot of people fall for it.
up, as an aside, Ole Honest Abe spent 6X more on the "civil war" than it would have taken for him to outright BUY the freedom of every negro in the South..and he killed 700,000 [98% white] folks during that war...just sayin.

How many people do you know that can relate to getting ambushed in the middle of the night on an Iraqi street? How about picking up the remains of your buddies bodies after their Humvee got obliterated by an IED? How about trying to revive your buddy in the back of a Humvee after he took a piece of schrapnel to his neck?
“I understand how you feel” would mean little from anyone, other than someone that’s been there.

The only people that really understand Veterans are Veterans. My advice would be to call another friend that is a Veteran or call a hotline that is staffed by the same.
No lots of people can understand vets because vets are just people like them. What I do not get is why the VA just not come out and say they are not equipped nor mandated to serve every vet. Wait they have.
I get the feeling that NBC will take the financial loss to keep the show alive for a while longer. I personally started watching the show back in the '70s after hearing about the first episode. It wore off after several years though.
Appeares to be?????? I quit watching it decades ago.
Things will not change until we BOYCOTT sponsors.
Watched it when it first started out with Chevy Chase and the gang. After Eddie Murphy left didn’t watch it near as much after that. Saw Chris Farley after awhile and laughed at him. Mad TV got more viewing time than SNL from me though for awhile. Early Jim Carrey always cracked me up.
Not a firing....unfortunately it was only a demotion.
The wife and I did the same. Even took a vacation day today figuring we could sleep in... wouldn't you know, to bed at 1 in the morning and still waking up by 0530.
Since Nov '08, I have flown my 13 Star flag to remind folks that we need to get back to the basics of our country.
Today, the 50 star is out...
Tomorrow, the 13 goes back out.
I've been fired before and I survived, 101.
I was hoping for something a lot more debilitating for Reid.
Any ideas? Maybe we could invite him to go hunting on Cliveon Bundy's ranch in NV. Now, that would be entertaining!

A pellet rifle in that treeline would take care of that problem.
White males deserve it.
Just ask a Progressive, or the US Government.
Your white male children are next, sheep.
Do we get to riot and loot now? Wait - we don't do that. Never mind.
It can only be a hate crime if the victim is not white! Ask Eric the Holder.
Oh, it's a hate crime all right.
"Not a hate crime" yeah, right. Then that must mean I grunt out 24 karat gold every time I use the porcelean convenience.
Wanna hear something interesting the police chief is BLACK West Point, MS police Chief Brinkley insulted the white victim. He denied it was a “hate crime” and said he will only pursue aggravated assault charges in the near fatal lynching. In a press release, he said “the evidence and statements suggest that a verbal altercation turned physical and somebody got hurt.” Twenty thugs pursuing a victim down the road and then nearly killing him while screaming racial slurs is just a simple “verbal altercation that go out of hand.”
MS police Chief Tim Brinkley is running interference for the perpetrators so they will get no more than a wrist slapping! Based on his press release, we must consider that he simply hates all white people too.
The AP also tried to downplay the attack with the headline “2 Hurt in West Point Confrontation.”
West Point, MS has 11,300 people and it is 57% black.
Sorry but I have to stay consistent. A man told him it was not a safe place for white people but Weems went in anyway, which resulted in an argument, which resulted in him being followed, and then beaten. He was warned. Not to blame the victim, but I would've (and have) said the same thing if this would have been about a woman who was warned not to jog at night in central park in a sports bra and short shorts but did so anyway and then was attacked and raped.
It's completely the attackers fault and they should be found and punished BUT it could have been avoided if he would have keep his safety in mind. THIS IS NOT YOUR GRANDPARENT'S AMERICA PEOPLE! It's hard to accept, but you are not safe in this country anymore. Whether you are a white man in a black neighborhood, a black man in a white neighborhood, or a woman jogging at night, you are not safe! Arm yourselves, protect yourselves, and stay out of situations that you know could be dangerous.
Welcome to the new America, please pick a side..
I am sure it was whites or perhaps even white Hispanics who he was warned about being upset over Ferguson and strangely warned that it was not safe for whites. Makes sense to me, as much sense as it does for someone to maintain it is not a hate crime. But then they might be right as the racial pimps including the prez and Holder say they understand black rage and basically minimize it. Well, with the prez's emphasis is social justice and white privilege, it was just payback time. No need to loot or riot or commit arson.
I'm all for returning to separate but equal in our society. Seemed to work rather well as I remember. They can have their restaurants, we can have ours. They don't have to look at us, we only have to look at them during legal proceedings........maybe Wal-Mart could be designated as neutral territory........It could work!
Black people following a white person, outnumbered the white person and, are upset over MB's situation which hasn't even been evidently concluded, then beat the white person after stalking him, sounds like a hate crime to me. They beat him because he was white and maybe because he had a difference of opinion. What has America come to?
Time to move to East Point.
It's not a hate crime because blacks don't get charged with hate crimes. It's only a hate crime if the races were reversed. A black man walking into a white area where he has been told it isn't safe for black people and then being beaten so bad he could die.
This is what happens when you don't shoot your attackers and "just take the beating like a man" as those sick twisted racist sycophants say.
No hate crime here move along.
Words used like White MotherF! Craker Biatch! are not considered hateful words in Obama Run Society.
You know things were said like: "Kill that White MotherF!!!", or "This is for Michael Brown you Craker Biatch!!!"
When will the Youtube Video of the beating come out. You know one of those fine upstanding people recorded beating a White Guy?
Whites are now treated like many blacks were in the days of segregation. Blacks were assumed to be guilty and otherwise abused. White America woke up and radical changes were made to what we hoped would match MLK's concept of judge people by their character, not the color of their skin. With progressives / Marxists in power, it is to their advantage to stir up racial animosity. Unfortunately with the current administration, they do the same thing. When Holder went to Ferguson, he tells a crowd how he was as a young man, according to him, stopped for speeding when he was not, as a pretense to search his car. In other words, "Brothers we are still victims of the evil white man." Holder did not see the purpose of his trip to Ferguson as getting to the truth which is no longer an investigative goal of the DOJ. The goal is now the progressive one of so-called Social Justice.
A marine and he wasn't carrying a handgun? I don't understand...I'm working in Atlanta and I just upped my carry piece from my 380 to my 9mm Springfield.
Stunning comment from the Police Chief. I hope they are not depending on him for their safety.
Evidently, blacks are incapable of the emotion hate. Who knew? Maybe then we need a new category of crime for blacks when they gang up and hunt down non-blacks simply for being non-blacks. We can call it a crime by non-human's since we know all humans are in fact capable of hate.
Either violent emotion crime is hate crime - or none of it is, it's just crime. Is there such a thing as a non-provoked non-associated "love" crime? "I noticed you are white sir, and frankly I love all white people. Therefore I am now going to beat you to death...because I love you. My mother used to say right before she would whip me, I'm only doing this because I love you son."
The immediate question that a journalist must ask anytime a police officer states "this does not appear to be a hate crime" ought to be:
"Sir, could you then please define for me exactly what IS a hate crime and what elements of a hate crime does this not meet?"
These answers would be enlightening as we review other crimes the police insist ARE hate crimes.
Doesn't seem to be enough information to say for sure, and the series of events, as detailed in this article, leave me with more questions.
If I were a betting man, I'd probably put money on it.....but it could just as easily been about Weems walking in the Waffle House and insulting everyone in the place. Was he drunk? (Waffle House @ 1:00am?)
Not that how the argument started would justify what was done to him (even if Weems did insult everyone's mother), but it's not fair to say without a shadow of a doubt given the lack of info with this.
Unless Weems threatened to kill every person's mom, dad & child....there is no excuse for beating someone up like that (or a whoop azz as Rachel Gentile would say)
101st... thanks for your service.
and i agree with every word.
how with the openly reported statements is this NOT a hate crime?
is our riotous chant supposed to be 'no dinner, no peace?'
ridiculous behavior by citizens who should know better, and given a pass by a bureaucrat unwilling to think.
I am sick of this sh Y t..The perps need located, all of them, and a friendly conclusion needs to be had.
The Police Chief appears to have gotten his job via nepotism and is not qualified for the job.
I think that the police chief needs to find another line of work. 20 Blacks on one white and it's not a hate crime? I guess they were trying to love him to death.
You know, I hope this Marine recovers. That being said I am going to embark on a short rant.
Why is it that when the victim is black (only) it is an instant hate crime. When ever the victim is any other ethnicity it is "no evidence of a hate crime". Where is Rev. Al. and the rest when they need to STOP the violence?
Pray for America, her best days are behind her. Praying for Ralph....
Attack on Whites have been increasing more and more every year. But Whites just seem tolerate their modern day lynching. how sad and pathetic.. It's only going to get worse as whites become the minority Unless the race stands up and fights back. The only race that be legally discriminated against is Whites.
liberals call it diversity.
Not a hate crime fuck them and the department of justice you racist fucks.
What happens whey you fight back. Example the 65 year old man beaten in the gas station by two women. What if he turns and clocks one? if he protects himself then he is the source of riots and they want to put him in jail. If the White many is injured it is just like an accident or what. The hypocrisy is unbelievable. Too many Black have a real twisted vision of the country and the world.
I go to West Point all the time. All the employees are black and they're spitting in your food, I wouldn't eat there, anyway. I know more black people than a lot of black people do. You dumb, white liberals probably don't realize, they hate you, too lol.
Not a hate crime???.........My Dobe just left a steaming hot pile of that out in the back yard!!! Chief Brinkley.....you are a racist of the highest order!!!
"and it wasn’t a safe place for whites" but this is not a hate crime.....but he was attacked by blacks because he's "white", but it's not a hate crime... Eric Holder is full of it.
My thoughts exactly.. We can not count on our law enforcement to help us. It is time to help ourselves!
I have words for it...B.S.! It's a hate crime, pure and simple. Hopefully he will recover and be able to tell the story first person.
I sure am glad my ancestors fought to flee the slaves.
If Blacks hate all whites, why is the reverse some form of hate speech?
Why is black on white crime different than white on black crime?
Of course is was not a hate crime!! Whenever a mob beats a white man it is more of a "love crime." They are showing him the error of his white privilege ways in a black mob kind of loving way.
Sign the petition to have this classified as a hate crime.
How come they left the part about Eric Holder high fiving and celebrating?
"Thank you for you military service!"
No justice, no peace!
So white hurts black is a race crime but black hurts white...well, it "doesn't appear" to be racially motivated. They'll investigate.
Yeah, that makes sense and assures we're all "equal."
too bad he didn't have a CCP and a full clip of ammo.
Get well soon
Useless freeloading morons. If you don't like Whitey, why do you leech of of him from cradle to grave.
This reminds me of something another Marine told me once.
He said he remembered the day he became prejudiced. As a little boy he was riding his bicycle in his neighborhood when he was struck from behind with a baseball bat. He said he was crying from the blow and falling off his bike. He asked to two black boys standing over him with the bat, "What did you do that for?" Their response was illuminating:
"Because your white!"
These boys were not much older than the white boy. (I think he said he was 6 or 7)
So why is the article afraid to describe the attackers? Could it be they are afraid too? Especially since they went out of their way to mention the "white" issue.
If this isn't a hate crime, I don't know what is.

Did they try looking down the iron sights/aimpoint of an M4 with that thing on?
Infantry needs to move fast, not be hindered by all this armor BS.
Dude, billions of R&D and you want to go all extra common sense?
False sense of safety is more important than accomplishing the mission.
Stop forgetting that.
I still want to see the numbers for injuries received due to reduced mobility and the added wear and tear from the armor. I'm getting three vertebrae in my neck fused tomorrow because of the crap.
Unintended consequences matter and REMFs and politicians are oblivious.
