A group of teenagers beat up a 15-year-old girl and stole her Air Jordan sneakers during a robbery in Brooklyn, surveillance footage released by cops on Friday shows. The teenager was walking on Utica Avenue near Sterling Place in Crown Heights on Thursday at 4:10 p.m. when she was spotted by the dozen youths, cops said. When she reached the corner, the gang lunged at her and punched and kicked her repeatedly, the video shows. The clip begins with the victim already on the ground, one of the boys kicking her in the chest and face. A second later, more kids run across the street,

Comments:

This business of Africans jumping in the air and stamping down on people's heads and bodies seems to be a recent thing; maybe there's a name for it. Should certainly carry a heavy penalty. Coverage elsewhere says the attack was retaliation for something, but who behaves this way? Another day in Crown Heights, scene of one of Al Sharpton's social arsons.

Brooklyn? Isn’t that where Chuck Schumer is from? So, this lawless behavior can be blamed on Schumer threatening physical harm to two Supreme Court Justices. Thugs. Democrat thugs.

Until these headlines say "black teens", there will be no end to this garbage. Bloomberg was right, and got savaged from both sides for telling the truth.

But they left her Rolix watch on her wrist. Had a fellow on a trip once who insisted on wearing his gold-by-the-inch chains on the streets of Salvador, Brazil, despite universal pleadings not to. A few minutes into his stroll his chains were grabbed by the passenger on a motorbike...but the rope chain didn't break off. He was pulled to the ground, and the passenger flipped off the bike still gripping the loot. As the victim rolled the more agile and younger thief jumped up and while pulling the chains gave a few pops in the face. His buddy came back, the chains finally came off, and off they went...the victim still wondering what happened. It's not like this is the first time expensive shoes have been taken by force...has anyone ever been beaten up for a pair of Kinney's canvas shoes?

According to New York liberal justice, this is not a significant crime and not worthy of an arrest. The perps would walk right out, without paying any bail or having a court date.

This story has been repeated ever since the in excess of $200 "Air Jordan" footware has been in existence. Back in the 80's kids were being targeted because kids who couldn't have afforded them and didn't have them, thought it was unfair for someone to have them and they didn't, so they took assaulted and beat up someone for theirs so they could have them-- the victim later died OVER A PAIR OF SHOES! They probably cost less than $5 at the time to produce in China with slave labor while NIKE pocketed over $200 a pair-- This is a perversion of capitalism and a lesson on why SOCIALISM seems great to the youths who took them by brutally wanting something that was NOT THEIRS, and took them through VIOLENCE and THIEVERY because it was UNFAIR for someone to have something they wanted....

It is worth noting that from the video it does not appear that they beat her up to rob from her. The robbery appears to be an afterthought once she had been beaten and was helpless. The person who stole her shoes seems to have arrived after the beating was over.

Notice that in the long shot of the attack, no one, - no one - comes to her aid. If that many people started swinging at the attackers, the assault could have been stopped or minimized. If those people accept it as daily life (or entertainment?) they will get more of it. Much more. Dare I call those youths feral animals?

Like sharks in a feeding frenzy. Once there is 'blood in the water' they all move in. The feral humans tag is accurate. Dysfunctional inner city black culture supports violent actions. Be armed, be safe. But, unfortunately, no state permits a 15 year old to even legally buy a gun, let alone carry it.

FTA: "It was unclear what provoked the attack." This statement assumes their was a provocation. This could have happened without any provocation, at least not from the victim. It was a soulless, savage, brutal act by teenagers who probably don't have fathers in their homes to set emotional and moral boundaries. And they have developed a primitive, pack mentality. Very sad. And to think Congress could one day be filled with the likes of them. Oh, wait . . . Chuckie Schumer comes to mind.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg dismantled a controversial Louisiana abortion bill during an hour of arguments at the US Supreme Court this week, systematically striking down components of the law she previously opposed during a preliminary vote. The 86-year-old Supreme Court justice, who recently returned to the nation’s highest court after announcing she was cancer-free in January, seemed to aggressively push back against demands from lawyers representing the Trump administration and state of Louisiana to approve the legislation during Wednesday’s arguments. Louisiana’s Act 620 would require abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of its facilities, in the event

ICE announced Friday that it had defied a California sanctuary law and arrested a repeat-felon illegal immigrant outside of San Francisco’s Hall of Justice this week, prompting angry denunciations from local officials. The arrest is the latest escalation between the Trump administration and California over immigration enforcement, with the feds pushing back hard on the state’s sanctuary policies through lawsuits, subpoenas, and now flouting the state’s own laws. ICE said it had tried eight times to get local authorities to turn over the man, who was not identified by name, but each time those “detainer” requests were rebuffed. So they tracked him down

Under the new rules, posted online Friday and slated to be published in the Federal Register next week, Attorney General William P.

Voters from predominantly black and Latino neighbourhoods were forced to wait for hours to cast their ballot in Texas on Super Tuesday after long lines were reported at some polling stations. Election officials in the Houston area were forced to send in additional voting machines as thousands of people reportedly waited for up to five hours to vote at one station. The long waits came after the closure of hundreds of polling stations across Texas by the Republican-led state government since 2012. MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow suggested voting difficulties had been caused in part by the “systematic” closing of stations in areas with high turnout for minority

The FBI missed opportunities to stop domestic terrorists from killing Americans because field offices failed to further investigate individuals who had been labeled homegrown violent extremists, the Justice Department watchdog said in a scathing report released Wednesday. At least six terrorists who later carried out attacks killing a total of 70 people were on the FBI’s radar prior to the attacks. However, the agents quickly closed the cases, concluding the suspects were not threats to national security, according to the Justice Department inspector general. Among the more high-profile individuals the FBI failed to recognize as a potential source of terrorism were Omar Mateen, who killed 49

John Conner III—who appeared on the Lifetime show “Bring It”—did not tell the teen that he was HIV-positive when they had sex several times after meeting on social media in 2005, prosecutors say. The boy later tested positive for HIV after having sex with Conner, WREG said.

Stress, they say, is a killer. So let’s take a moment to feel sorry for Bill Clinton, who now claims he took advantage of Monica Lewinsky to “manage my anxieties” while president. Bill being Bill, there will be no real apology coming, just some typical and expected minimizing. “But whatever,” he says. “What I did was bad, but it wasn’t like — how can I think about the most stupid thing I could do and do it.” This is from a new documentary on Hillary, a for-hire job meant to canonize her and the would-be Clinton dynasty. And in typical Clinton fashion, they refuse to take the memo: Post-#MeToo, Bill is forever a liability.

Trump said he was constantly under attack from his political opponents and admitted that he would not be president if he was not as combative.

Supporters say the "Save Women's Sports Act" is intended to prevent young girls and women in K-12 schools, community colleges, and state universities from being forced to compete against biological males, but opponents argue it allows for discrimination. House Bill 2706 passed along party lines 31-29 and is headed to the state Senate, FOX 10 reports. The bill is strongly opposed by Democrats.
