Attorney General Eric Holder - Race based Justice in Action
"Federal authorities said Thursday they have arrested and charged a Texas man in connection with the “knockout game,” accusing him of a hate crime for targeting a black man for a vicious street attack.
Most knockout victims that have appeared in news reports have been white, but the Justice Department said in this instance the victim was a 79-year-old black man, and stepped in with federal charges.The assailant, 27-year-old Conrad Alvin Barrett was white. An idiot trying to see if he were to "hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?” And yes, he needs to go to jail!
"The “game” has spawned a fierce debate since many of the reported victims have been white and their assailants have been black, but hate crimes charges have been all but non-existent.
Last month New York authorities did charge one person with a hate crime, saying the assailant targeted a Jewish man."I have never bought the "Randomness" of these attacks. Look up the word Random.
In some cases these are calculated predatory acts on innocent prey. This is no different than the "random" murders black gang members were required to comment against people of a color other than their own as an initiation rite in the 1980's. Then too, authorities refused to admit these attack were race related.....and rooted in hate.
The only real difference is these attacks are being video taped and widely disseminated on media websites.
