Crowd Beats, Strips & Robs Tourist On St. Patrick’s Day; Incident Caught On Camera

Quote

The video shows a man being punched in the face in Downtown Baltimore. You can hear his head hit the pavement near the entrance to Courthouse East.

Instead of helping, people laugh.

Then, the crowd strips him naked and takes his car keys, watch, money and iPhone.

However this of course will not make national news though it should, the Black community across the nation needs to see this stuff so they know exactly why they get profiled when they get profiled, that is is not based on the color of their skin but as a direct result of the actions perpetrated by those in their community.

OR this is a result of people angry about being profiled and targeted by the system. Targeted by a system that is supposed to protect them. Anger+ violence+ crime= money.

And this certainly doesn't mean all black people act like this.

Everyone,at some point,is targeted by an ignorant person,for no good reason.
And it makes most people angry.
Most angry people,do not respond in this way,with such a mob mentality,and disregard for human life ,property,and dignity.
That is NO EXCUSE for this,wether they are angry or not,because they are profiled.
Its the old 2 wrongs do not make a right.
This is disgusting,be it blacks whites or purples.

Miss me?

I agree it is horrible. I also assume you have never been profiled or targeted by ignorant people. Especially as long as they have in these black or "nonwhite" neighborhoods.

There is absolutely no justification for suggesting these people committed the offence simply because they are black - which is what your OP amounts to accusing them of.

This is exactly the sort of profiling that fosters the sort of hatred and behaviour witnessed in the video.

You know, I just really wonder when people are going to stop making excuses for people just because they are black. If a group of whites would have done this OH MY GOD!!!! HATE CRIME!!!! It would be all over the national news, the NAACP would be screaming, all the racial pimps would be coming out of the wood work like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Because it's the other way around you won't here anything about it. Why is that? Well, because if you say anything about this the race card will come flying. Equality my azz. Last time I checked we weren't living in the 50'a anymore.

It can never be the individual's fault, right?  It's the system... the "Man" that's keepin' em down, right?  Do you live in a "hood" or ever lived in one?  If not, you really shouldn't have much to say...

Of course the system is to blame, didn't you get the memo? The system is suppose to protect them, it's not there to protect the person they were attacking from scum like them....

[sarcasm off/]

This isn't about the system anyway, that's just the usual crap spouted everytime something like this happens....unfortunately this is what happens (the attack) when people who share one brain cell congregate in one area together...simple as that.

I wonder what Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson have to say about that video. Not much, I bet.

I didn't get that memo but then I don't live in the ghetto any more.  

Also, I couldn't have said it any better than you did... amen!

Actually you don't have to live in the hood anymore. There is profiling being done all over the country. Vermont may be only 1% black but we have plenty of ******s. It is in the form of single mothers and children. Apparently it's working out for most just like the profiling of blacks.
