Cincinnati Police Chief Reverses Course – Now Calls Mob Beating A “Hate Crime”…

[However] Mayor John Cranley said “Saturday night was unacceptable”, but called it a one-time event. He blamed poor planning for the problems, including too few officers and allowing a concert aimed at teenagers to end after the city’s curfew. (link)

cincy suspects 2CINCINNATI Ohio – Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell has reconsidered and is asking Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters to pursue hate crime charges in the Government Square attack that left a white man beaten and bloody on the Fourth of July.

Police Officer Alicia Essert called the beating “anti-white” in the incident report, but at a news conference about the incident, Cincinnati Police Capt. Mike Neville backed off that claim, calling it a “mistake.”

“In many cases, a hate/bias relationship between the offender(s) and suspect(s) may not be easily apparent at the time of, or even shortly after the commission of the offense,” police spokeswoman Tiffaney Hardy said in a release. “Often, hate/bias elements become evident only after thorough investigation and review of the available evidence.”

Christopher McKnight, 27, of Albany, Indiana, suffered a broken nose and concussion in the beating. He was released from the hospital Sunday night.

Two officers were injured while trying to control a crowd at Fountain Square that spilled onto Government Square. (read more)

      They charged the guys that attack the son and his friends with the new fad “ethnic intimidation” which is not on par with a Federal Hate Crime, it’s a cop out charge IMHO.

Yeah he was also charged with “ethnic intimidation” as well…. no that wouldn’t constitute a Federal Hate Crime at all I guess.

      So, I have a few questions. There’s a white guy seen laughing in the video. Not beating, but certainly not helping (don’t we have some laws against that–“not helping”? That’s not my MAIN concern however).

      It seems QUITE apparent these days that nobody is now better at Hating White People than Other White People. Man, they are GOOD at it!

      So…..will that be a new “Hate Crime” development? I mean, I definitely realize that whites are the antithesis of a “protected class”, but they have seemed to indicate that “white privilege” gives one an especially uncaring outlook, pretty much makes you better at hating. Whites are assumed to have a better platform to hate from!

      If a white beats up another white, b/c that white “hates blacks”, can we stick that into this “Hate Crime” morass? Not like it would ever get prosecuted anyway!

    The chief’s appointed, not elected, so it might be a move to keep him and the department from being sacrificed by the ‘leadership’.
    Generally a chief doesn’t speak 180-degrtees from the mayor without flame and brimstone, possibly followed by a pink slip, coming his way, but it appears Chief Blackwell’s been active in not only working directly with the community but rebuilding what appears to be an ‘ignored’ department.
    My opinion is that he isn’t that worried about job security, it’s community first that’s tops in his book and not throwing bones to the elected pols, this may also force the issue with the public as when a chief starts talking plain truth and not political smoke the public tends to listen. Let’s see what he says next and what the pol’s reactions are to the truth.

    The video in this article is longer than any I’ve seen before. There’s not necessarily anything of importance – more inside the bus, no more of the fight – but then I didn’t hear everything that was said.

    “Hate crimes”- I honestly don’t understand why we have to have that special designation – in either direction. Anyone causing injury to another person like that is obviously motivated by hate. Why do we have to dig deeper, and find out the reason for the hatred, if it’s racism, or something else. Does it matter? The attacker(s) should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, regardless.

    I’m seriously asking. Is there any benefit to labeling an attack a hate crime? Does knowing that a hate crime will be prosecuted more severely hold someone back from commiting a crime? Is it a deterrent? On the other hand, doesn’t that label cause more polarization of the races?

    A couple of observations about this instance ~

    There was one guy, a tall black man in a red shirt, that kept pushing the two main black fighters off. I really think he was trying to break it up. It would have been nice if someone had helped him. Another thing, the white guy, Christopher, had several chances to walk away. At least that’s what I thought – when he was putting his shoe back on, for one thing. Then, there were two more times when red t-shirt guy had pushed one of the black guys off of him, that Christopher walked back towards the fight, when it seems like he could have just walked away.

    Between the two videos, we’re obviously missing some time, because Christopher is still walking at the end of the first one, and he’s on the ground, unconscious I think, in the second. He looks to be in a different place in the second video. The sidewalk is very different. We don’t see him put on the ground. Maybe he was attacked by more than just a handful after the first video.

    Just some thoughts – really want to hear yours.

    • I agree with your observations about the man in the red shirt, and the curious behavior of the white victim. As for your questions about the (apparent) need to designate some crimes as “Hate Crimes” I can only point out that this is a designation mainly reserved when prosecuting whites, and (most often) is not considered when it is a white victim of black racism. Yes, it perpetuates the optic of racism—but only white racism–which is exactly what the BGI and perpetual victim class want. SO much easier to get reparations from wherever when the dust settles.

      on that note, explain to me why our current (black) Atty General wants to expedite a $29 MILLION pay off to the families of the Charleston shooting? What makes them eligible for any type of government payout? Isn’t that what insurance is supposed to do?

The liability seems greater, but they probably won’t do anything for her family unless forced to, by the courts.

        Thanks, LJP –

        If it’s only considered a hate crime when the victim is black, that’s racism right there – because they’re saying a black life has more value, and demands a greater punishment, than a white life.

        Don’t they see that they’re not following Dr.King’s dream? They’re just trying to get to the other side of the same pre-civil rights coin. They are judging people by the color of their skin, and not their character. The BGI is not looking for equality – they just want vengeance. And that is not going to help anyone.

        I really am tired of being called a racist – of being called a racist nation, a racist political party, a racist denomination, a racist of any sort. I don’t have a racial bone in my body, thanks to the love of Jesus in me. Most Americans, I believe, are NOT racists.

        I have NO idea why such an exorbitant amount is being paid to the families of those slain in Charleston. It’s not the government’s fault. It’s certainly not the taxpayers’ fault. I’m very sorry for all they’ve had to go through – their loved ones were victims of a horrible crime. But does the government pay ALL victims’ families for ALL crimes in the nation? Again, that’s not equality.

            I had a similar experience in high school. I had two wonderful best friends – one black, one white. We were the three musketeers and we had so much fun. We also had a sense of humor about race – like the time my two friends convinced a pretty gullible girl that when my black friend wiped her face with a tissue, the “black” was coming off! Haha – it was her makeup, of course, but the look on that girl’s face was hilarious!

            Schools are out of control – absolutely insane what’s going on in them. In Washington state, 6th grade girls can get an IUD implanted WITHOUT their parent’s permission. In Fairfax County, Virginia, the school board voted AGAINST the parents’ wishes to institute a pro-LGBT curriculum that will begin in 7th grade!

            Parents who oppose this progressive nonsense need to get on the school boards, and stop it in its tracks. That’s short-term. In the meantime, we’ve got to elect a president that will at least begin the process of getting the federal givernment out of our lives, and putting the control back into our states and local governments…you know, the hands of the people.

She was sitting in front of me, and when she heard it called for attendance, demanded to know if I was related (I’m not). I was so surprised by her ferocity that I started laughing, and she was so surprised I found it funny that she laughed too. We were best friends from then on–humor transcending race.

    It’s good that at least one time the hate crimes law is applied honestly. However, and it is a big however, it is very problematic indeed to allow the justice system and everyone else into peoples’ heads to punish them for the thoughts that they have. That is completely unacceptable. That is why it was possible for the networks to smear George Zimmerman by tampering with videos. We need to go back to the gold standard: Was this self-defense? Was this a violent felony assault? Was this attempted murder. It should be irrelevant in the legal system whether or not the motive of a felony is racism. Americans need to get away from the thought-crime mode and return to a real system of justice. Murder is murder, assault is assault.

    Even so, it is extremely important that if we do have a communist style law like “Hate Crimes” we need to apply it fairly and evenly. The self-admitted (in a poll) most racist group of people in America are blacks. A lot of blacks have escaped not only the well-deserved hate-crime conviction but even well-deserved murder, assault, attempted murder, arson, and other felony charges and convictions.

      Correction: “It should be irrelevant in the legal system whether or not the motive of a felony is racism.” “It should also be irrelevant what someone thinks of another race when self-defense is the issue. The issue is whether someone reasonably believed that his life was in danger or that he reasonably believed that certain measures were necessary for self-defense. If a black person is pounding your head into the cement, it is irrelevant whether or not you like black people.

      Also, maybe you did like them until 10 of them assaulted you, 200 of them insulted you grievously, and 30 of them pulled dirty tricks on you at work or school, and 5 of them left you with permanent injuries that changed your life. And maybe you noticed that 95% of them were lacking when you judged them by the content of their character. If that is the case, you still have the right to defend yourself.
