Thats a much larger question, and it isn't hard to find evidence of a greater amount of questionable violence across the world. Though i would find it hard to attribute that to drugs like Oxy since America is the largest consumer of that particular drug.

The gunman in georgia simply stated he was off his meds.
While i know it won't hit the news outside Spokane there was a standoff up the street from my house at a local pawn shop. Which of course is similar to the stand off at the bank that recently made headlines.
The killing of the australian athlete.
The guy in Florida (i believe) who shot someone and then claimed it didn't matter because of his victim's race.
The Hannah Anderson story.
The guy who posted his dead wifes pic on Facebook.

In China a police office who was off duty took an infant out of a couple's arms and smashed it on the ground after betting that the baby wasn't real. (Which just sounds f-ing odd to me)

In India there has been a marked increase in gang rapes.

Obviously the world is a violent place, and terrible things happen all the time, so in part it just might be our increasingly connected culture showing us regularly all that violence going down in almost real time that is making us more aware of it all.

You're a reprehensible human being.

For the love of God, go back on your meds before you wind up hurting yourself. You want to kill people based on how they look. Think on that for a second. Why mod action hasn't been taken against you is beyond me. That's not my call, but you need to dial it down.

So I am wondering why all the people so outraged by this supposedly racially motivated attack (two blacks and one white killing a white guy doesn't strike me as racially motivated, it is more likely that it was class motivated) never made a post about the incident in Texas when a couple of white good 'ol boys chained a black man to the back of their pickup truck and dragged him until all that was left of him was a bloody greasy smear a mile long, and perhaps a arm and a bit of torso still chained to the truck?

I did a search for this story on ATS both via ATS's search (good luck with that, found stories on chupacabra but nothing on this story) and then google, the latter yielding only this 0-flag thread:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Where was all the outrage about this racially-motivated attack story on this website???

If there are more threads on this story, please correct me on the matter.

I guess here at ATS when two black punks and one white punk kill a white guy, then that's a racially motivated attack, but when two white Texan good 'ol boys chain a black man to the back of their truck and ablate him to death, dragging him down some country road at high speed, that story isn't even worth bringing up -- and clearly isn't a racially motivated attack.

Again, I'd like to be proved wrong, and have someone show me a few more threads with a lot of flags on this older case out of Texas -- and even better would be if some of the people posting in this thread and going on about the racial double standard by Obama and the media posted their outrage in such a thread.

People are outraged because 2 young thugs killed an 89 year old war Veteran!

Black, white, pink or purple doesn't even come into it. This Hero fought for the very liberty's these fools now enjoy!

It could just as easily have been my Grandpa!

As i said in the other thread I would nail them to a wall, set fire to there nether regions, and sit back and watch them flop around in agony!

That's what they deserve!

And there time will come!

Poor old Man, you fought the good fight, rest in peace now buddy!

Would it be possible that demonic possession or something similar could be involved?
I've thought about this option quite a bit..

Also, there's the possibility of mind control weapons, or psychotronic weapons being used
against the eventual criminal offenders: Take a look at stopthecrime.net...

Just about every white kid who went on a shooting spree was on powerful psycho-pharmocological medications for depression. How do those work? They disconnect/disable that part of the brain that relates to perception of the current or future state of the person and the consequences of their actions.

The blacks that do the killing are usually self-medicated on drugs like crack or skank for depression, and didn't have a father figure or role model in their lives.

The reason you see the racial calling out going on is because there is an agenda. I believe that agenda is to demoralize the American people. Guess what comes next? People better get a check on this before it's too late.

Ten Planks of the Communist Manifesto

1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rents of land to public purposes.

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

6. Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State.

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

8. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries, gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of population over the country.

10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.

It's things like this that make me stay as far away from the words African American as I possibly can. Am I black? Sure, but no way in hell am I grouping myself with people like this. If someone asks, I'm Jamaican - wasn't born here, and bear no relation to practically anyone in this country at all. Don't even bubble in African American because it makes me feel like I have more in common with these people than I actually do.

All murder is tragedy. I couldnt find the racial aspect of this crime less important if I tried, because the only thing about murder that matters a damn is the victim. The perpetrator is just a detail to be dealt with, but the victim is someone to mourn.

That the victim in this case was one of the people who battled the legions of evil in times past only adds to the tragedy.

You do realize that your "Lord and Master" isn't alone right?

There are over 700+ members of the House, Congress and the Senate. Many of them are very rich and have been in power longer then Obama will be and are in many ways more responsible for the current state of American affairs then our current POTUS.

Does Obama say stupid things? Absolutely.
So do most Presidents.
But he is just one of our "Lords and Masters"

Now, as for the case of Delbert Belton
Shorty's Memorial

More than 100 people came to show their respects Friday night for a World War II veteran who was murdered Wednesday night. The memorial was held outside of the Eagles Lodge near Lidgerwood and Francis. Flowers began piling up Thursday morning in honor of Delbert Belton who was killed nearby outside of the Eagles Ice-A-Rena. Friends, family and strangers attended the memorial. Everyone lit a candle to show their respect. The crowd then they started to sing “Proud to be an American” to thank Delbert for his service in the military. Others shared memories about Delbert and some called him “Shorty” and some said they felt compelled to speak even though they didn’t know him. One of the people who attended the memorial said, “He survived combat just like I did. To die like he did that was just a waste. But now god brought him home.” A motorcade was also on hand to ride in Delbert’s memory. People at the memorial said the Spokane Veteran’s Arena is accepting calls from the community to gauge how many people would like to see a community memorial set up at the Eagles Lodge. If you would like to call the arena, the number is 509-279-7000. Anyone looking to help the Belton family can donate to a memorial fund at Wells Fargo Bank. Donations can be made to The Delbert Belton Memorial Fund c/o Wells Fargo Bank, 601 W. 1st Ave, Spokane, WA 99201.

i hate to say it-,& remind you i am NOT a rascist person,(& never have been),.but yet again,this was commited by an african american..i also watch 48 hours,(the show),& i have noticed that 75% of these perpetrators-are african american.,(it is a fact),& i rarely see a caucasion(sorry bout the spelling-if it is wrong)...but why is this?


See, this is what white guilt, political correctness has gotten us. We are unable to discuss about real problems, real issues because:




Now I personally don't think it is racist at all to tell the truth. Fact is it is statistically proven that blacks on average commit more acts of violence. Fact is there are several problems in the black community. Specially a glorification of the gangster culture (drugs and crime) and single parents (black men not raising their children). What is also sad is when a black man calls this out, he is called an Uncle Tom (see this happen on ATS)

Now I know some will try to deflect this with economic stats, cite historical facts but at the end of the day - SO WHAT. One has to stop playing the victim card and start trying to solve the problem. That is, work hard for your family so your children will have it better then you do.





There has been a lot of talk lately about race wars:







Do they really think things are going to improve in a race war?

The point of the other thread started on this topic was that these killings are NOT about race. Just like the Trayvon Martin killing this is more about the media and race baiting politicians trying to start racial tensions so we don't pay any attention to whatever criminal acts they are perpetrating.

Just more divide and conquer. Give the fluoride drinkers another reason to hate each other while we rob the country blind and take away more of your rights.

Wake up people.

-This "Race War" ideal is disturbing (to say the least) and I am seeing this on Forums, websites, etc...

The thing is, I am not seeing this from "the street". I live in an inner city , very mixed (mostly Black and White) and I have friends of every color of the rainbow (except Blue- Those Blue people are worthless...).

I was talking last week to a black friend about Trayvon and he said the same thing- Its like the media is trying to provoke something that really isnt there. Things are so far past a "Black/White" issue as we are more in a class issue at this point in History... TPTB however, would much rather make this racial since divide and conquer works best.

-I am scared... At some point this will turn racial since thats whats being built up here- Its causing fear and division. We cannot play into this.

African Americans are strategically skewered in an American race war scenario, the French, English and German American populations make up over 75% of the country. Its Risk , in which one player dominates the board by surrounding the others, continuously placing troops around the opponents, attacking them every turn, leaving just enough opposing army to continue the game.

No, it will not. They are demonizing people as we speak. We all know what happens next. We've seen in in history. You can ignore the warning signs or you can attack it head on. You need to have an open dialogue for everyone not one selected race. We need to get past this because we're already on the way out. We need to come together to create a better place for ALL.

Blacks can't win a race war. Whites can't win a race war. Hispanics can't win a race war. Screw war, it's time to give peace a chance. What are you afraid of? That society sees it as weakness? Hold on to that hate and be destroyed by it. Time to wake up.

You won't see them telling you what is right. All you'll see is them telling you to hate. If you fall for it, may God have mercy on your soul. It will come to a head and the haters will get what is coming to them. They still convict Nazi's for war crimes. Think about it.

Friends of Delbert "Shorty" Belton gathered at the Sportsman Café and Lounge Friday morning, his favorite place to enjoy a meal, to reminisce about his life while struggling to comprehend his tragic death.

Belton, 88, died Thursday morning at Sacred Heart Medical Center after being assaulted by two suspects in the parking lot of the Eagles Lodge Wednesday evening. One suspect, 16-year-old Demetrius Glenn, is in custody and is facing charges for Belton's killing. The second suspect, 16-year-old Kenan Adams-Kinard, remains at large for the deadly attack.

The Sportsman Cafe on North Market was Shorty's favorite place to eat with his friends, and all day Friday people came into the restaurant to share stories about Shorty and laugh and, for at least one meal, put aside their feelings of anger shared not only by the local community but the entire nation.


If you plan on going out tonight raise a glass for Shorty and do as he would do.
Laugh, love and let the hatred go.
If anything, this just proves life is far too short for anything else and he would likely prefer it that way.
