Hello all,

I'm from Hampton Roads and was outraged when I didn't hear about this crime until two weeks later, by the Virginian Pilot in a "opinion piece". Here's the story:


Attackers came after her, pulling her hair, punching her head and causing a bloody scratch to the surface of her eye. She called 911. A recording told her all lines were busy. She called again. Busy. On her third try, she got through and, hysterical, could scream only their location.

Three calls to 911. Wonderful government service, I'll say.


Two weeks have passed since reporters Dave Forster and Marjon Rostami...were attacked on a Saturday night as they drove home from a show at the Attucks Theatre. They had stopped at a red light, in a crowd of at least 100 young people walking on the sidewalk. Rostami locked her car door. Someone threw a rock at her window. Forster got out to confront the rock-thrower, and that's when the beating began.



The responding officer coded the incident as a simple assault, despite their assertions that at least 30 people had participated in the attack. A reporter making routine checks of police reports would see "simple assault" and, if the names were unfamiliar, would be unlikely to write about it. In this case, editors hesitated to assign a story about their own employees. Would it seem like the paper treated its employees differently from other crime victims?

Right, this paper wouldn't cover a black-on-white mob assault that happened to their OWN REPORTERS.


she says the officer told her to shut up and get in the car. Both said the officer did not record any names of witnesses who stopped to help. Rostami said the officer told them the attackers were "probably juveniles anyway. What are we going to do? Find their parents and tell them?"

This is obviously a hate crime, but of course "they" will not let that fly. Remember kids, only whites hate other races.

In certain neighborhoods, there always seems to be a problem getting through to 911. Hmmmm?

I'll let Flava Flav explain.

SCOTUS has already ruled that the government/police do not have to protect you or keep you safe. You must take responsibility for your own safety. Of course, since she was a reporter she is likely a democrat and hates gun owners/ownership. Maybe she will become a conservative now?

Where's the indication that this was a hate crime? The police could do nothing more than report the assault. None of the people were identified.

911 is state, not gov.. Complain about the state not "they, them" or anyone else.

If this where a hate crime they would attack on sight.. Also do you think these the only white people driving around that night? Had the guy not gotten out of the car to confront 100 people on his own and had they just called the cops and drove down the road a bit and waited i doubt much would have happened other then a rock being thrown. I wouldnt say that makes a hate crime.

Also this post was on Twitter:

The next day, Forster searched Twitter for mention of the attack. One post chilled him. "I feel for the white man who got beat up at the light," wrote one person. "I don't," wrote another, indicating laughter. "(do it for trayvon martin)"

Hate IMO.

My point isn't that the government should always be protecting us from everything. I'm just saying what a wonderful use of taxpayer dollars, a place that's supposed to help with emergencies and doesn't.

I dont see where it says anything about twitter in the link you provided above?

And you might want to be more specific with what type of gov then because state and gov two separate entities. Even more so if you want to talk about tax dollars at work since again, two seperate entities.

My point was that the reporter should have shot first and called 911 to pick up the bodies.

Read the Virginian Pilot article, in full. Also government is government, it doesn't matter which one I'm talking about, they never manage taxpayer funds correctly

You make a good point, man.

No, these two very different things.. Thats like saying RP wants states rights because.. They are the same as big gov!! Thats like saying its the presidents fault what state laws are made and enforced, thats why we have state and fed law.

Also again, where did the twitter info come from?

Alright, I'm not trying to make a case on state's rights or whatever you're trying to make it. I'm just saying all government, state, local, or federal, misuses taxpayer money. That's it, plain and simple. Also the Twitter information was posted on Pilot Online, however they will not disclose the account name because of privacy concerns.

Thanks for letting me know, I just searched Virginian Pilot and no results, so I thought there wasn't a thread. My bad

In Norfolk, Virginia, reporters for The Virginian-Pilot, Dave Forster and Marjon Rostami, were attacked on Saturday night as they drove home from a show at the Attucks Theatre.

They had stopped at a red light, near a crowd of at least 100 African-American young people on the sidewalk.

After Rostami locked her car door, someone threw a rock at her window. Forster got out to confront the rock-thrower, and that's when the attack occurred.


So this guy got out of his car and starting yelling at a crowd of over a 100 black youths?
What did he think would happen? I guess you can tell hes from North Dakota where I don't think they have to many blacks. But Marjon Rostami should have known she was from Texas.


And it does not mater what race they were you get a crowd of that size of any race and you start yelling at them.
You don't have to worry about being beaten stupid because you already are.

Race does matter. If a group of whites had attacked a couple of blacks, this would be front page, and on cnn/msnbc 24/7 while bammy called for the white kids to be lynched. Where is bammy's outrage now? Where are our two favorite race pimps sharpton and jackson?

I see a great closing of this thread in the near future.

Seriously, stop with this race baiting nonsense, it's getting annoying now.
