Video Shows Teens Violently Looting Redford Gas Station

ClickOn Detroit, July 12, 2011

Surveillance video shows a group of teenagers on Friday night tearing through a Redford Township gas station.

The group of nearly 20 teens are shown running through the station and stealing several pieces of merchandise, owner Sam Matalka said.

Matalka said he lost hundreds of dollars in merchandise and had to spend hours cleaning up the damages caused by the teens Friday night.

Witnesses said the same group of teens crashed an 8th-grade graduation party earlier Friday night at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall in Redford Township. That’s where witnesses said a fight broke out and shots were fired in the parking lot after the teens crashed the party.

More witnesses said the teens did not stop after the gas station and they were seen tormenting a customer at a nearby White Castle. Witnesses said the customer was chased outside, where the teens beat him as he tried to get away.

    “The customer was chased outside”… One of the first things my real life mentor taught me was NEVER to mess with any one a lot older than myself, without a good reason and thinking thru the consequences. As he put it, “They`ve had forty years longer than you to hate their job, their life and the situation they find themselves in. Do you really want to mess with someone whos barely making it and getting more tired by the day of trying? Doesn`t that sound like someone who would love to pin all his miseries and frustrations on a guy who he sees as a young punk?” It made me think if it was worth it, whatever the reason. This is a lesson a customer is going to teach these flash mobs soon. And it won`t be pretty when it happens.

    This is the predicted outcome of 50 years of using hard earned tax money to support the uneducable underclass. It is long past time for this nonsense to be ended. Government has been using hard earned tax money to pay this class more for doing nothing than employers can afford to pay them for doing productive labor. When Government began this ill fated experiment, “Blacks”, in particular, did not behave this way. Cutting off the hard earned taxpayer provided gravy will give a large and destructive element of society the opportunity to improve its behavior.

    “Veterans of Foreign Wars?” Seems like they had a domestic war on their hands. By the way, why do we still have eighth grade graduation ceremonies and parties? “Graduating” from the eighth grade means absolutely nothing these days, except that for many Detroiters, it is their last graduation ceremony.

    Thank you, southern plantation owners of yesteryear, for providing us with this never ending entertainment.If they ever figure out which of your great-great-great-great-great grandkids need to pay reparations to the descendants the American slaves, I think they need to squeeze them to pay every White person who has ever been a victim of Black crime, every White person who had to dump their homes at great financial loss to escape the dark tide and every White business person who has had to spend a fortune to fight a lawsuit filed by an unqualified applicant.

    What to hell were you guys thinking? Didn’t you bother to ask anybody how those Africans acted back home?

    The democrats give them breeding scholarships, the more babbies you have the money you get. Republicans want to increase welfare recients by not wanting to support planneed parenthood. The numbers are growing, they are well fed, full of energy, media doesn’t want to talk about and we all have to be PC, what do you expect?

    When are they going to stop calling them “teens?” White and Oriental teenagers do not behave this way, even when they are poor.

    The people who own these small store should start keeping a paint ball gun in the store. If the punks were all marked with red paint when they ran out of the store the police would be able to identify them, provided the police got there quickly.

    “witnesses said a fight broke out and shots were fired”

    I would guess the blacks did the shooting since no one was hit (blacks do that a lot..shoot, but don’t hit their target), the other alternative is that the veterans need some target practice as I can guarantee that if I fire at someone they are going down and I am an advocate of a pre-emptive strike and a double tap to make sure.

    The only places to be in these United States are places where it is legal to carry a concealed weapon. I say concealed since I prefer that method over open carry. It has saved my life 3 times in the last 40 years. Nothing says goodbye and leave me alone and you will live like a .45 pointed at center mass.

    I think this is the new tactic for blacks looting: instead of the old phoney “civil rights” rioting followed by looting, which won’t be put up with like before, they just go en masse into stores and steal.

    This has to be cracked down on hard else it will spread like crazy.

    “Just for a moment …

    Exactly! Too often, we get caught up in the immigration issue. Not saying that is not important but it pales in comparison to the problem of blacks.

    Is it Asians who are doing flash mobs?

    Is it Hispanics who are rioting and playing “knockout king” against lone, small, innocent and often elderly people?

    Is it Arabs who are destroying neighborhoods and sometimes whole cities like Detroit and Birmingham with their very presence?

  • john in germany

    The only people who need to be truly segregated from civilized society are blacks. I grew up in South Carolina in the 60s and that’s how it was then and it worked fine. There were blacks and there were Whites (everybody else). I never had trouble with any other race acting uncivilized, but I’ve put up with a bunch of grief from our African-American brothers.

    Great comment. This will really get us White people united here in the good ole USA!

    As a transplant myself here in the South I’m tired of all the put downs of Southerners by the hordes of Northerners who move here. If it’s so bad here, go home.

    There’s plenty of blame to go around. To blame it all on long dead Southern plantation owners is absurd. Read your history. This nonsense has to stop!

    Is it Indian immigrants who are rioting it the streets?

    Is it Indian immigrants who are living off of welfare and committing violent crimes which essentially is biting the very hand that feeds them?

    Is it Indian immigrants who are making the schools unsafe for white kids?

    For those posters on here who keep telling me to ‘go home’ to India, they really need to visit an apartment complex that’s 90 percent Indian and see how they can safely walk around at night. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again- we are productive, hard-working, intelligent people who take care of our own families and don’t ever ask the U.S. Government for assistance.

    “Just for a moment …

    I think about it a lot AWG.

    It would as close to Paradise as it’s possible to get. We could eliminate our own White criminal element without fear of being labeled racists. Rapists, child molesters and murderers would be executed within days after their conviction.

    Our cities would be safe again. The women in our lives would be a thousand times safer. Our campuses would be safer. Law abiding people could have more children now that they could afford them and they also would have a reasonable expectation that those children and THEIR children would have an opportunity to enjoy their lives without having to look over their shoulders every time that they ventured out. Our economy would be strong without the massive burden of underclass welfare. Our school once again would be the great institutions that they once were. AND THEY WERE, ONCE!

    I think about all the wonderful and innocent young White men and women who could have made a difference who met violent deaths at the hands of these people. They were naive and careless because of the bull that they were fed all through their years of Progressive education. They’re gone forever and those who killed them live on in our penal institutions while we, including the loved ones of their victims support them.

    A poster stated in another article that the blood of these people is on the hands of the people who stole the minds of our youth and put them in jeopardy in some cases their own parents who failed to teach them the realities of life in today’s America. These victims got no justice from the “justice” system.

    I recall that opening scene from the first Godfather when the mortician Buonasera comes to D. Corleone for the justice that his daughter didn’t get in the trial of the men who beat her almost to death because she resisted their attempt to rape her. This is apparently the only way that we Whites are going to get justice; not by going to a local Cosa Nostra capo. They’ve pretty much been weakened by the DOJ. If one were to compare statistics of those who died at the hands of the “MOB” with those who died from the actions of Blacks, I’d wager that the disparity would be shocking.

    We’re going to have to strike back. Stokely Carmichael once advised Blacks, ” If a honky hits you, kill him”.

    Does anyone have a clue as to how many White people die/ are permanently injured at the hands of Blacks each year?

    We are dealing with soulless people who have not a scintilla of human compassion. They talk about “soul food” and “soul music” but “soul” to them means “black” and has nothing to do with the human soul which we envision as being the force that directs our lives e.g. the compassion we feel for those who are afflicted and those who seek our help, the conscience that haunts us when we do wrong. These organisms have no soul.

    Think about how Amy Biehl must have begged for her life while they were beating and stabbing her or the pleas for their lives from Eve Carson, Anne Pressley , Channon and Christopher and the Wichita victims. We’ll never know because unlike in Amy’s situation there was no crowd of onlookers.

    I do that often. Detroit would would be a waterfront paradise.

    But, imagine the opposite. What if all other races left the earth and blacks were stuck here to fend for themselves. I could only imagine the horror. Massive starvation, world war?, dams would burst, the electricity would stop, running water would stop. Science fiction stuff.

    ——-

    The Civil War would never have happened. To an extent that war, and the animosities between North and South never ended.

    Much of white flight would never have happened. America’s once proud cities would still be centers of civilization. Downtown areas would be known for museums, art galleries, libraries, book stores, atmospheric restaurants and taverns, and well functioning public schools. They would not be asphalt jungles resounding with the sound of gun fire and the sound of police sirens.

    With less of a move to the suburbs America would be less dependent on automobile transportation. Our balance of payments deficit would be less, or non existent.

    The tax revolt would not have happened. This is because whites would know that their tax money was spent on them, that it was not spent subsidizing the illegitimate reproduction of a biologically inferior, inherently criminal, and congenitally unemployable underclass. With no tax revolt the government would not be so deeply in debt.

    On the other hand, jazz and rock & roll music would never have been invented. I can accept that. American popular music would be more influenced by Celtic music. It would be softer and more romantic.

    Now hold on there a minute, Mr. Kuhn. Most of those African slaves were taxied over here in the holds of ships owned by European and New England profiteers. And it wasn’t until they were liberated en masse by the Yankees that they became more of a liability than an asset.

    Rather than colonize them after emancipation–as Lincoln had envisioned–Northern Radical Republicans thought it more prudent to leave the blacks to their mischief down South where they could torment the ex-Confederates and disrupt the status quo.

    It has only been since Northerners imposed federal “civil rights” laws that so many blacks have become such a menace to society at large.

    I, for one, have suffered the inconvenience of having to retreat in the face of an advancing black population that threatened the security of a once peaceful neighborhood. I feel I’ve already paid my share of any reparations (through displacement; taxes; governmental,academic, and professional discrimination; loss of civil liberties, etc.), and my direct Confederate ancestors didn’t own any slaves!

    The slaveowners were familiar with primitive African behavioral traits; they believed they were elevating their charges by introducing them to civilization. But yes, it was a bad investment.

    The white population of the world will soon cease to increase. The Asiatic races will be longer, and the negroes still longer, before their birth rate falls sufficiently to make their numbers stable without help of war and pestilence…. Until that happens, the benefits aimed at by socialism can only be partially realized, and the less prolific races will have to defend themselves against the more prolific by methods which are disgusting even if they are necessary.

    – Bertrand Russell, from The Prospects of Industrial Civilization (1923)

    ——-

    If by “socialism” we mean an economy where most commercial property is owned by the government, that has been a disappointment. Social Democracy gets good results, but only in countries where nearly everyone is white.

    Nevertheless, it is interesting to note that there was a time when those on the democratic left could speak candidly about racial differences. Bertrand Russell also wrote this:

    ——-

    In extreme cases there can be little doubt of the superiority of one race to another[…] It seems on the whole fair to regard Negroes as on the average inferior to white men, although for work in the tropics they are indispensable, so that their extermination (apart from the question of humanity) would be highly undesirable.[15]

    Why is it that these public events of group vandalism events are only by blacks? A vestige of slavery? Fighting for attention amongst other minorities (shop keepers)? Economic crimes to support families? Or sheer anti-social behavior and defiance. Clearly these well dressed (relative, but expensive ghetto garb) kids aren’t starving, this is vandalism and defiant theft. Catch me if you can, and if you do so what?

    A current theme of woe for the disadvantaged inner city folk is the notion of food deserts. A food desert is any area in the industrialized world where healthy, affordable food is difficult to obtain. Given the story above, is there any reason why anyone would want to risk their personal and financial well-being to serve these lawless communities? Ironically, it’s the recent immigrants “of color” other than black who are the victims of the ghetto residents “of color” who are black. Perhaps it would be useful to construct a term for People Of Color but Not Afro-American or “POCNAA”. I am sure Caribbeans, Indians, Asians, and native Americans would be pleased. Even Hispanics too. That way the above article could be described as “black youths in unprovoked attack on hapless POCNAA community.” In a world of diversity and group pride, it would be good to discern who is doing what to whom.

    To Sureesh,

    I suspect that Bernie didn’t mean to exclude Indians when he used the word Asians. They do that routinely in the UK and generally are referring to Pakistani who along with the Jamaicans and Africans have the lion’ share of the violent crime scene.

    India IS part of the Subcontinent and Indians as well as East Asians (Chinese, Viet, Koreans) are part of the Blacks’ victim pool . They hate you because you achieve through hard work and they don’t and they consider you to be interlopers. While Black “youths” are out assaulting, raping and murdering, Asian kids are home studying.

    I will say that many Hispanics have a tendency to refer to the place from which they emigrated as “my country”. I clearly remember all the Italian immigrants among whom I grew up always referred to Italy as the “Old country”. Most of them never went back even to visit.

    As for “go home to India”, I trust that you feel that you ARE home. Ignore those comments.

  • I need to find out the conversion factor of gallons of natural gas into kwh of electricity for a natural gas power plant in Louisiana. When I calculate it using heat of combustion of natural gas, it gives me a really big value for kwh of electricity, however using DOE’s data gives me a far lesser value. I am confused what is the conversion factor and what is the efficiency of the process. Please be as specific as you can..
