But the attackers pounded on his front windows and kicked his wooden door so hard, it flew open and some of them entered his house.
"The first guy hits me with a pipe. The second guy knocks me in the face. All I'm hearing is my wife and kids screaming," said LaVelle, who feared that the next time they saw him, he would be in a casket.
He said that he was able to push the attackers out the door, but then a third man - who had a gun - tried to extend his arm. LaVelle grabbed onto the gunman's lower arm and shoulder so he couldn't raise the weapon. Then, police sirens screamed in the neighborhood, and the mob turned and ran.
LaVelle said that the next day the mother of the juvenile came back with some other people, banging on his door, screaming. LaVelle, who was at a charity sports event, was called back to the house by one of his sons.
When he got home, LaVelle said, the mother yelled at him, " 'You white mother------, you got my kid locked up! You got my son locked up because he's black, you're white!' " The mother claimed that her son had been "a witness," not an attacker. To that, LaVelle said if that were true, it would come out in court.
But the mother, according to LaVelle, then yelled: " 'If you make it to court! I know where you live!' "
Police public affairs could not confirm yesterday if the mother has been arrested for making threats.
Are you being obtuse? Have you missed the class and racial hate being preached by the democratic party and by obama himself?

Funny you should mention "race baiting" when this thread is clearly a case of "political baiting."
Did you read the story you posted? How does this have anything to do with a political party?? Your post lacks responsibility and honesty.

Why didn't he have a gun to defend himself? As soon as that mob kicked in my door they would have become bodies instead of people. I will never understand why people allow themselves to be victimized.

These kinds of fights happened before the "Democrats were race baiting". If they weren't happening you'd find something else to blame them for. They had nothing to do with these people fighting. No, I'm not a democrat, but I do try to look at things fairly. Obama was not there, Pelosi was not there, just those kids and that man. That's it's.
You guys are just like all the sheep you screech about.

It should be noted by everyone reading this thread that the thread itself and some that have spoken up in it's defense are clearly "race baiting" and promoting "class warfare." Although it's subtle, it's definitely there and serves many purposes. Think about it.
