Finally - Knock Out Perp Charged With Federal Crime


Recommended Posts

The white guy was so stupid that he recorded the attack on his cellphone and then showed it to everybody. A 27 year old attacks a 79 year old man. Of course he was prosecuted.

He was prosecuted because the victim was black. That is the point. He is charged with a hate crime. We see blacks do this to white people a lot and no hate crime is filed. I think the people playing this game just pick random easy and weak targets. They don't care what their race or gender is.

 

Hate crime laws are stupid.

He was arrested because he was showing the video to people in a bar, and the off duty police officer arrested him. The elderly black man hadn't even filed a police report. Barrett broke a 79 year old man's jaw. Of course he was prosecuted.

 

 

Video of the attack, according to authorities, shows Barrett approach his victim and ask him: “How’s it going, man?” before clocking him.

The victim, who is black, fell to the ground, and Barrett ran away laughing, authorities said.

Barrett, who is white, had also saved on his phone videos in which he used a racist epithet and asserted that black people “haven’t fully experienced the blessing of evolution,” according to the charging affidavit.

In another clip saved to his phone, Barrett stated: “The plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?”

And in more video footage shot before the Nov. 24 attack, Barrett drives a car around a shopping mall parking lot and says that he’s trying to work up the “courage” to play the “knockout game.”

Yet another video from his phone documents Barrett announcing that he has “found the perfect African-American suspect,” but he then appeared to change his mind, according to the affidavit.

 

In the devilish “game,” goons attack innocent strangers at random in public, attempting to knock them out with a single punch. A recent spate of such attacks, which are often videotaped on smartphones, have led to a stream of press coverage, but federal prosecutors say that the twisted practice has been documented as far back as 1992 under various names.

 

In announcing the charges against Barrett, acting U.S. Assistant Attorney General Jocelyn Samuels said the U.S. Department of Justice would work with partners “to ensure that hate crimes are identified and prosecuted, and that justice is done.”

After Barrett showed the video to the off-duty cop, who works as an arson investigator, the lawman left the bar and alerted a police officer nearby, who then confronted Barrett and confiscated his phone.

 

The victim did not initially file a criminal complaint, police said. Officers recognized the neighborhood in the video and canvassed it. Neighbors led police to the victim, whose relatives then filed a formal report with police.

 

Barrett was charged Tuesday with violating the federal Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Barrett’s arrest affidavit was unsealed Thursday when he appeared before a federal magistrate. He is due back in court Friday for a detention hearing.

Then again, the perp is "white". What did we expect?

I am glad I did a search to see if the article was posted before posting it. I find this totally unfair. For Months we been hearing about how baboobs are targeting whites and Jews in their knockout game, and nothing was done about it. Soon as a white person does it to a black man, he gets charged with a hate crime. Man back in the day Americans wouldn't stand for this shit. I am so angry my blood is boiling. Somehow I doubt any of the media is going to call the Admin on its blatant Hypocrisy.

Now of the little [African-American slur]s that did the same thing, only to whites and jews were prosecuted for hate crimes. I can not even begin to understand how you can think what happened in this particular case is fair or right.

No one is saying the dude shouldn't be prosecuted. What we are saying is if the victim was white, and the perp black hate crime charges wouldn't of been filed. This is total hypocrisy.

There'll be a trail, he'll go free, Sharpton and Jackson will march down the local MLK Jr. Blvd claiming "Another injustice was visited on us today," and when those two hate mongers leave the nigs will trash and burn what's left of their Ghetto's.

 

Same ole same ole
