The deadly assault of a Mableton man has become a national story, at least online, with several web sites and blogs claiming Joshua Chellew was killed because he was white. Initially reported as a hit-and-run, police now say Chellew died June 30 after an attack by four black teenagers in Cobb County. According to the arrest warrant, the 36-year-old victim was repeatedly punched and kicked by the youths outside a Chevron gas station. Chellew, badly beaten, eventually stumbled onto Mableton Parkway, where he was run over. He died at Grady Memorial Hospital.
Comments: Just so you all know, the AJC has declared that this was not racially motivated. Move on please.
With police departments, sheriffs, judges, juries, and all the bureaucrats being threatened by our DC mafia, it looks like it´s time for some of the rest of us to get to these incidents before the police and modify the outcome somewhat.

Is this a news article? Cuz it sure reads like an opinion piece. FTA "” ablogger on The Daily Caller, founded by conservative pundit Tucker Carlson and a former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney" what does that have to do with anything?
it´s only racism when the journOlist decides it´s racism.
It seems like the only black teenagers who ever commit violent crimes are 18 or 19 years old. I gather most of them are unarmed and on their way home to do their chores and homework. Racial profiling is a terrible thing.
The part I most like about this story is how the 36-year old very white, red-headed man, flashed gang signs, specifically flashing "blue colors" and pledging allegiance to the "Crips". Uh-huh. Sure he did. I also bet he threw some JayZ and Notorious BIG slang at them too.
Detective: "Was this racially motivated?" Detainees: No maaan! The muth*&)(*#%&W$*&)*##Q^Q#^$#*&)#*&%*#&%#*)(%&)#*&%*)%#&^$*#^%$#%^%_^*^^! Detective: OK, OK, OK. We´re sorry. Please accept our apologies. We hope we haven´t disturbed your evening gentlemen...
No. If you are taking in the information and forming rational conclusions then you are not becoming racist. You are becoming informed.
I feel the exact same way. I grew up in the 60´s just outside of Atlanta. I thought integration was cool. Had black friends right off the bat and could not stand the overtly bigoted kids in my neighborhood.
Now, at 56, I have seen enough to know that there is a mindlessly violent contingent among young blacks males that should NOT be excused away or ignored. The facts bear it out and, sadly, black ´leaders´ don´t give a rat´s &ss about it. They only care about the rare instance in which a non-black brings violence against one of their tribe.
I am sick of it and it breaks my heart that the ideals of my youth have been destroyed by the Sharptons and Jacksons of the world.
Don´t apologize for using your eyes, ears and brain.
I guess this is a semi-rant. To me, these gangsters are indicative of a greater disease in America and, unfortunately, I don’t see an end in sight. Our first black President is certainly no help. Rant starts here: This is not going to get better until we face the big picture. This will be controversial... we are witnessing the effects of the botched (my view) end of slavery. Slavery was rightfully abolished in 1865 via the 13th Amendment but with absolutely no plan as to how the freed people would eventually assimilate into society. As far as I know, there was also no plan to repatriate those who wished to return to Africa. Personally, I believe the American Colonization Society of 1816 had the best approach but that’s beside the point. All Americans should be here because they chose to be here. In any case, as a result we have what we have today… inner city enclaves of people living outside of the relative prosperity of the rest of America (and out of white liberal view). This is un-American as very few ever escape this poverty. This semi-apartheid was, and still is, apparently accepted by all… especially by the race hustlers and pandering Democrat politicians. The most difficult part of this for me to come to grips with is that we, as a society, after all these years still have no plan. Horatio Alger is indeed truly dead for millions of Americans. Since there are no do overs, it appears this condition will be with us in perpetuity. /Rant
By the way, did anyone notice that in the pictures of the 4 "gang bangers" that the last two had on blue shirts? Now, why would gang bangers, so committed to their gang, "The Bloods", that they would kill someone who flashed blue at them, have on blue shirts (in what I´m assuming are mug shots)? Yea, yea, little ´ole honky was part of a gang and that´s why they killed him.
The crude translation of Mr Boone´s piece is that the fatal assault was gang motivated and therefore not racially motivated. If he had been wearing red (the Blood´s color) instead of blue (the Crip´s color) he would not have been attacked. Note that two of the four defendants are wearing blue tee shirts in the photos. If they were all released as currently attired, would they be justified in killing each other?
SPRING CITY, Pa. — Frank Schaefer gets to keep calling himself a Methodist pastor — at least for the next 30 days. The United Methodist clergyman convicted of breaking church law for officiating at his son´s same-sex wedding was suspended late Tuesday, and ordered by a jury of his fellow pastors to surrender his credentials in a month if he can´t bring himself to adhere to the laws of the church´s Book of Discipline. Schaefer said he had no intention of changing his mind about the church´s teaching on homosexuality, declaring he would perform more gay marriages if asked.
Tuscaloosa, Ala. - Alabama´s football team is steaming toward Saturday´s showdown with rival Auburn and a possible third consecutive national championship. The team has lost only two games in the past three seasons. But here in Tuscaloosa, there is one small pocket of dissatisfaction—and it´s an important one. It is located inside the home shared by Terry Saban and her husband of 42 years, Nick, the team´s head coach. The first couple of Alabama football may be standing on top of the world, but it isn't necessarily thrilled by the view. "You come to a crossroads and the expectations get so great,

Democratic sources tell News4 that his son, Austin "Gus" Deeds, attacked him before fatally shooting himself.-snip-State police would not comment on reports that Gus Deeds was released from Bath Community Hospital Monday following a mental health evaluation performed under an emergency custody order. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported a psychiatric bed could not be found for him over a wide area of western Virginia.
Criminals take note; You´re taking a chance if you try to ply your trade in the Dodge County town of Rhine. Local law enforcement is praising townspeople for some de facto community policing, after tracking down and helping catch an armed robbery suspect. For 60-year-old Ken Lowery the commotion began around 2:30 Thursday afternoon as he stepped inside Aden´s convenience store and encountered the store clerk in distress. "The lady screamed at me and said ´I´ve been robbed, he´s got a gun, and I gave him all the money,´" Lowery recalled. Lowery says he saw the suspected gunman, identified as 24-year-old Damien Durham

We did it our own self,” said Harold Carter, Arceneaux’s older brother.
STANFORD, Calif. -- Stanford squashed Oregon´s national championship hopes again, schooling the Ducks in power football. Florida State might want to send the Cardinal a thank you card. Tyler Gaffney ran for 157 yards, and No. 5 Stanford hammered No. 3 Oregon for three quarters before holding off a furious rally by the fast-paced Ducks for a 26-20 victory Thursday night. The Cardinal made it two in a row against the Ducks, who haven´t lost to any other team in the past two seasons.
At the Country Music Association awards in Nashville, effectively the Grammys for country music, superstar hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood performed a song skit mocking Obamacare, the Democrats´ public health initiative that has proved hugely unpopular amongst conservatives. Paisley, feigning a strained back, was attended to by Underwood who suggested he try Obamacare: "I started signing up last Thursday and I´m almost done!" They then launched into Obamacare By Morning, a spoof of George Straight´s country classic Amarillo by Morning, attacking the initiative´s slow service and inefficiency.
On October 22, the European Parliament rejected a report that recommended nations of the European Union declare abortion to be a human right. The Parliament also rejected the notion that abortion should be made available within all public health systems of member nations. According to CNSNews.com, the 351-319 vote sent the measure back to its committee on women’s rights and gender equality, an outcome its supporters said was due to “intense lobbying by right-wing religious and political conservatives.”
A key Iranian cyber war operative may have been killed in an “internal dispute,” cabinet minister and former Shin Bet intelligence chief Yaakov Peri said Thursday. Peri, the minister of science, was speaking on Israel Radio as Iran denied reports that Cyber War Headquarters commander Mojtaba Ahmadi, who was recently found dead northwest of Tehran, had been assassinated. Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said he had died in a “horrific incident,” but ruled out assassination. “The main reason of the event and the motive of the attacker has not been specified,” added a Revolutionary Guards statement quoted by Reuters. On Wednesday, Britain’s Telegraph newspaper
Two alleged home burglars picked the wrong Gwinnett County house to break into Thursday morning. Not only was the homeowner inside, but he was armed with a gun, police said. Around 11 a.m., the homeowner, whose name was not released, called 911 to report that two suspects were attempting to break into his home, according to Cpl. Jake Smith with Gwinnett police. Moments later, while the homeowner was still on the phone with 911, one of the suspects forced his way into the home through a window, Smith said. “The homeowner retrieved a handgun and fired at the suspect, striking him,”
LONDON — The eagle, red-handed. Remote cameras intended to monitor Siberian tigers in Russia instead caught a golden eagle´s fatal attack on a deer, snapping three photos as the massive bird dug its talons into the distressed animal´s back. London´s Zoological Society, which distributed the pictures to journalists, said the sequence showed a rare but not unheard of attack by a golden eagle. The society´s Linda Kerley said she first realized something was up when she approached the wildlife-monitoring device — also called a camera trap — and found a mangled deer carcass nearby.
An Australian mother has chosen to scar her daughter for life with what might be the nastiest eBay listing of all time After her daughter lied to her about hanging out at an older boy´s house, the eBay user "tsfe" decided to teach her a lesson by auctioning off the One Direction concert tickets she had previously purchased as a birthday gift. The blistering, shaming message tsfe wrote in the listing was discovered by the Reddit user canusich, and it´s sure to make your inner teenager want to disappear on the spot. Here it is:
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. One of those people, a young Florida woman named Monica Weeks, introduced Obama after telling the story of being struck with Crohn´s Disease at age 19 and receiving expensive treatments for several years that were covered by her parents´ health care plan — because Obamacare allowed her to remain on that plan until age 26. Now, Weeks said, she has coverage through a job. "The Affordable Care Act gives young adults who are just starting
MSNBC has announced that Chris Matthews, Barack Obama´s most excitable fan, will be interviewing the President on Thursday´s Hardball. Fawning over the liberal politician is incredibly common among journalists, but Matthews has taken it to a whole new level. According to the network host, Obama is a "perfect," "cool," brilliant figure who is comparable to Jesus, Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy. The verbose Matthews has no filter when it comes to the Democrat, even once bizarrely blurting out that an Obama speech made him "forget" that the commander in chief "was black." To prepare you for the likely love-fest
Continued global warming poses a risk of rapid, drastic changes in some human and natural systems, a scientific panel warned Tuesday, citing the possible collapse of polar sea ice, the potential for a mass extinction of plant and animal life and the threat of immense dead zones in the ocean. At the same time, some worst-case fears about climate change that have entered the popular imagination can be ruled out as unlikely, at least over the next century, the panel found. These include a sudden belch of methane from the ocean or the Arctic that would fry the planet, as
Nobody could accuse the press of ignoring the fiasco-on-a-server that is HealthCare.gov. The Obamacare website’s woes are dominating coverage on the network news, the cable talk shows, the blogs and, of course, high-octane websites like POLITICO. But did the press do a good job of covering the Affordable Care Act before the health care exchanges went online—sort of—on Oct. 1? Were we adequately warned of the troubles that were to come? And now that HealthCare.gov’s problems are headline news, is the coverage of it any better? Sure, one can find a few examples of one news outlet or another warning of impending
MSNBC´s Chris Matthews will interview President Barack Obama this Thursday, the network announced Tuesday. The interview is part of Matthews´ "Hardball College Tour," and will take place at American University in Washington, D.C. According to a news release from MSNBC, Matthews, along with university students, will "discuss a variety of topics with the president including voter suppression, healthcare, the decline of confidence in the government and the overall political dysfunction in Washington." On Monday our colleagues Carrie Budoff Brown and Jonathan Allen reported that the White House is launching a coordinated campaign to return attention to why the Affordable Care Act
