5 Plead Guilty in Anti-Racist Attack at Tinley Park Restaurant

Andy Grimm, Chicago Tribune, January 4, 2013

Five men charged in connection with a brawl between alleged white supremacists and anti-racists inside a Tinley Park restaurant pleaded guilty today and will serve sentences ranging from 3 ½ to 6 years in prison.

At a hearing on a motion to suppress evidence in the case Friday, brothers Dylan, Cody and Jason Sutherlin and co-defendants Alex Stuck and John S. Tucker all agreed to plea deals with prosecutors, pleading guilty to three of the 37 counts they were charged with.

{snip}

The five men, all from the Bloomington, Ind., area, are members of the Hoosier Anti-Racist Movement, and had driven to Tinley Park May 19 to confront a group of alleged white supremacists who had planned to meet at the restaurant.

The Sutherlins have maintained they had planned to stage a “peaceful protest,” but security video shows as many as 18 men entering Ashford House, some wearing masks and carrying batons and other club-like objects. Within minutes, a melee broke out among the two groups, and several bystanders also were injured in the scuffle.

In all, the five men faced 37 felony counts, and prosecutors pushed for maximum sentences of 7 years on each, based on the most serious charge, armed violence. {snip}

As at previous hearings in the case, a crowd of supporters filled the courtroom, many of whom had written character references attesting to the men’s work with charitable organizations—including a domestic violence shelter, Barrido said.

Jason Sutherlin received a 6-year sentence, Dylan and Cody Sutherlin were sentenced to 5 years each, and Stuck and Tucker each received 3 ½ years.

    I can sum these guys up with one word… ‘dorks.’

      I can think of some better words, but the poor moderator would never approve.

      I met some anarchist types in college. All of them were weird loners. These days the weird loners connect online.

      • pcmustgo

        Anarchism is a form of aggression white males are “allowed” to have… it’s an acceptable form of macho aggression for white males. It’s the only way white males can acceptably express rage.

  • BernieGoetzFan

    Who will get to them first? The black rape gangs or the Aryan Nations types? Either way, I hope it is a long hard stay for these specimens.

    • Fair Dingum

      I hope it’s the black race gangs. Then, when they turn to the Aryan Nations types for help, all they’ll get is a horse laugh.

    • Anders

      It lightened my mood today to lean that for these scumbags, ‘reaping time has come’.

    • TheTRUTH

      I was all ready to see 5 black faces. I’m so disgusted. I also hope it’s the blacks that get them. Let them suffer at the hands of those that they felt the need to stand up for.

      I can picture them groveling too, begging for mercy and saying “But we were standing up for you guys” as that plea falls on deaf ears and they get pummeled like never before.

  • http://www.dailykenn.com/ Daily Kenn

    These guys were raised in nearly all-white areas of southern Indiana. I suppose their prison time will be a culture shock of reality.

    • http://twitter.com/baldowl baldowl

      They will not emerge as “anti-racists.” I promise you that.

      • T_Losan

        whaddya mean? Didn’t you see American History X? They’re sure to meet a wisecracking black guy who will befriend them and protect them from the evil whites.

        • Sam

          There will be a wrongly-convicted, wise, brilliant black philosopher in there. He will protect them from predatory Nazi gangs, and they will learn the beauty of black traditional spiritual music and African communalism. One of these whites will, through dumb luck, have a connection of some kind that he got through unwanted white privilege and that connection will help exonerate the wise innocent black man. When the black man gets out, he’ll be magnanimous and use his powerful African connections to protect the white people and make things easier on them somehow, perhaps through a connection to the one good warden there, who happens to be an orphan the wise black man helped out once.

          I will write this into a screenplay and then George Lucas and Steven Speilberg will get into a bidding war for the rights.

          • Sam

            Oh I forgot a couple of plot points. The wrongly-convicted wise black guy is in there because he, through no fault of his own, got into a situation where he had to choose between violence or being wrongly convicted. And when the white guys are in prison they will learn the virtue of the path of non-violence from this wise black man, making them stronger and wiser. This wise black man will turn the unfortunate whites’ prison stint from a bitter punishment into a spiritual awakening.

            Sorry about leaving that out previously.

          • muddbutt

            your screenplay is missing something, You need to throw in corrupt white pedophiles males that are also Nazis that have swastika tattoos , and throw in a wise and moral Jew that is killed by these whites and then you might catch Spielberg’s interest.

        Somehow I get the feeling that their outlooks will be the opposite of Edward Norton’s character in “American History X” when he was released from prison…

      • Sloppo

        Agreed. Prison will be “Introduction To Reality 101″ for them.

    • JohnEngelman

      Unfortunately, one usually needs personal experiences with black crime before realizing that blacks are a problem.

      • Sherman_McCoy

        You know, it took me more than a few such experiences to disabuse me of my anti-racist notions. Something kept telling me that “I” was the problem. Could it have been the popular culture or the constant preaching by the authority figures in the military?

      • pcmustgo

        Not even Black Crime. Black Attitude, Black Hatred, Black Racism, Black Unnecessary Hostility and Rudeness, Black Arrogance, Black Competitiveness, Black Disrespectfulness, Black Unable to Get Alongness…

        Blacks showing their true colors.

        Plenty of “competent” middle class blacks can fall in those above categories, btw.

    • blight14

      Kenn, I thought they hailed from northern Indiana, so were you familiar with these cretins before this horrible incident? B

      • http://www.dailykenn.com/ Daily Kenn

        They’re from the Bloomington area. One, I recall, may be from Martinsville. Both towns are within a 45 minutes of the center of the universe, otherwise known as Gnaw Bone, Indiana.

  • Michael_C_Scott

    The Aryan Brotherhood isn’t going to do a thing to these clowns, but they certainly won’t help them, either.

    I’m having a little trouble understanding the point of a “peaceful protest” in which participants wear masks and bring billy clubs. This seems a bit like bringing a .460″ Rigby rifle to a “photo safari”.

  • http://twitter.com/baldowl baldowl

    I did a little time a long while back. During the first week, a fellow white inmate asked me if I was racist. “If you’re not now, you will be before this is done,” he assured me.

    And here I am.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      I got along OK in the feds with all of the whites, all of the Orientals and Amerinds, a lot of the Mexicans and some of the blacks. But… I was at a low-security facility, so the selection bias is obvious. Also, I ran an unofficial study group in our unit – open to all – for guys working on their GEDs (mandatory for all federal convictss who had not graduated high school). It didn’t cost me anything, it passed the time, and I figured it couldn’t possibly hurt my situation there. My file also says I taught a guy to read, but that isn’t quite true. He was a white biker and could read at a first grade level, he was my bunkie, and I worked with him as well, so as a sort of project, I brought him up to “Aviation Week and Space Technology”. He wasn’t stupid; he just couldn’t read well.

      My nickname was “Professor”, even though I don’t have a PhD.

      • jackryanvb

        Do you recommend this route for others of us here who are framed, put in prison for PC thought crimes, hate speech? Will other prisoners be less likely to try to rape us if we are teaching some GED class?

        • Michael_C_Scott

          I always would reccomend that once one has carefully “learned the territory”, so to speak and if it seems safe. Before my July 2000 arrest, I was a research chemist, and when handling dangerous materials for a career, one learns to minimize risks. One can’t eliminate some risks – it’s like being on the highway. You don’t drink before getting behind the wheel, but other people probably have. One of my rules there is that I won’t drive on undivided highways after dark; I don’t want to be hit head-on by a drunk.

          I would also say never buy anything from an inmate running a “store”, never loan another inmate anything or accept anything of value from one – again until you know the ropes – and never, ever gamble. Lots of fights start over gambling debts.

          • whitepony87

            I hear drugs and just debt in general are what get people you know what in the you know where. If I found myself in the clink I would just clique up with 4 or 5 other youngish white guys and get it over with.

      I did a little time too, but we called it going to school. Same lesson plan though.

  • Dirty Dirk McGirk

    I’m sure once these color-blind anti-racists get to prison, they’ll be welcomed with open arms by the Crips, Bloods, and Mexican Mafia, who will see that they are some of the good whites, dedicating their lives to lifting up their darker skinned brothermen and defeating the evil scourge of racism. In fact, I bet the first day they’re behind bars, they organize a “peaceful protest” of the Aryan Brotherhood and teach them the errors of their ways.

    • NM156

      In an IL prison (read Chicago prison), they’ll be befriended by the Latin Kings, Spansh Cobras, Vice Lords, and the Insane P-Stone. In addition, Jake & Ellwood Blues won’t be providing entertainment in the cafeteria.

    This gem of a quote is from the Chicago Sun Times: Sara Garber, Stuck’s attorney, said the men have been active fighting racism. “Obviously, violence is not an answer, but white supremacists are extremely hateful, violent people. Here we are, the state is prosecuting these five kids. Why aren’t they looking after the white supremacists?” Garber said. Isn’t that just lovely? http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/17390085-418/story.html#

          Well, I did use quotes. I’ve already said here what my FBI file says. Of course violence is sometimes the only effective answer. The British army didn’t just up and leave New Orleans in 1814 because the locals talked funny and the smell of the cooking from Andrew Jackson’s camp stank.

      Well, to answer the bimbo reporterette- they aren’t “looking after” (sic) the white supremacists because they have the whole thing on video and the white supremacists were sitting at a table doing nothing and were then attacked by masked fools with billy clubs.

  • Triarius

    Some of you people on here I disagree with. These guys will willingly be on their knees the atone for their white privilage in prison and end up no different than a pin cushion.

    They will then get out of prison and resent what happened and blame it on White America and Republicans.

    They are ANTIFA. They hate their skin color and a world they cannot make it in. Prison will make them more vile, not regretful.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      The young one on the upper right in the mug shot series will certainly be on his knees.

    • The Worlds Scapegoat

      ANTIFA is mostly made up of the lowest dregs of jews. ANTIFA started in the Soviet Union during the Bolshevik revolution. Anyone who was anti-communist was considered a fascist. Many Christians were attacked by ANTIFA as fascists, and killed. ANTIFA is nothing more than a group of fascists communist terrorists.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        I suspect you’re history is wrong there. Antifa was established in Soviet-run POW camps for German, Italian, Romanian, Slovak, Hungarian, Croat, Finnish and other Axis soldiers they captured during World War Two and held the survivors among whom in many cases until 1955. The Antifa was an attempt to exploit the feelings of men who felt they had been deceived by Hitler, left in the lurch, and then abandoned their home countries into working for the Bolsheviks. It worked best on enlisted men of relatively little education, but also on professional officers, like Field Marshal von Paulus who as part of the professional German officer corps always regarded Hitler and the NSDAP with distaste. In cases of high-ranking German officers like Major Erich Hartmann, when NKVD and Antifa pressure failed, it failed completely.

        The USSR did the same thing with the POWs they took in the Japanese army they overran in Manchuria and north China in 1945, except that it worked better, as since Japanese soldiers were not expected to become POWs, they had never received any instructions or training as to how to behave so as to save their own sanity and military discipline in captivity from professionals in the NKVD who had become experts breaking down individuals from the Oder River to the Pacific Ocean in the wake of the war’s end.

    Ironically, when it comes to dealing with scum of my own race, I follow the examples of how the chinese, arabs, and nigerians handle their own trash. They are worse on their own kind for making the whole race look bad.

    Remember the Michael Fay caning incident 20 years ago in Singapore? His asian partner in crime, Andy Shiu Chi Ho, received a tougher punishment.
    Well, I hope these five punks managed to succeed in eliminating racism where they will be living for the next few years.

  • jackryanvb

    The victims of this terrible, cowardly assault were regular White Americans like us – not WHITE SUPREMECISTS, just regular White Americans concerned about our people being insulted, abused, marginalized. The moral of the story is to be prepared and don’t expect the cursed MSM – mainstream media to be fair when describing us.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      You wouldn’t know that from the media, though, would you?

      Notice the article calls this a “brawl” and not the vicious, one-sided attack that it was with hammers, nunchuks and baseball bats.

      The victims were called White supremacists, White Nationalists, skinheads, Nazis and fascists (one of the victims needed 8 surgical staples to close a wound in his head).

      Were the attackers called vigilantes, aggressors, thugs, racists or criminals by the media? Which they certainly were and are?

      NO.

      These so-called antifas are brainwashed goons — egged on by a powerful, White-hating media

  • Byron

    I thought one of the definitions of a “hate crime” was targeting someone because of their assumed political or religious beliefs?

    • Bill

      ONLY if is is the right political, religious or ethnic group. White, anglo saxon, straight, christians or odin worshippers are ineligible to be victims of hate crimes

    • Michael_C_Scott

      Yes, and isn’t this also one of the definitions of “fascism”?

  • NorthernWind

    I’m sure that those white boys are going to have a real great time in prison. The diverse prison population will surely welcome them with open arms!

  • bigone4u

    Morgan Freeman, et. al. will make them a cause, and a sell-out politician will pardon them. I’m surprised actually that the prosecutors went after them. In fact, where was Morgan Freeman, et. al. while these fine young men were being railroaded into prison.

  • NYB

    ‘Anti-fascists’ believe the laws of man don’t apply to them. They are the heirs to religious fundamentalism, in the sense that they follow a cult-like belief system which believes itself superior to society.

    Their defense is that they’re “fighting fascism”, which is akin to Christian religious zealots giving sanctuary to illegal migrants avoiding deportation, claiming they’re “doing the Lord’s work”. ( U.S. laws blocking illegals must therefore be ‘immoral’ and ‘unjust’, and therefore don’t have to be followed) .

    When Washington undermines U.S. laws regarding illegal migrants, it emboldens the self-described ‘anti-fascists’. The Obama democrats courted these people in the last two elections, and some believe they are effecting the ‘change’ which was promised.
    .

    • http://www.awpn.net/ Celestial Time

      I would say that they are possibly more zealous than the fundamentalists. At least those with religious inclinations are usually doing so based on thousands of years of documented interpretations of history. These suburban “anti-racist” types are pretty much making up empirical evidence on the fly.

      • http://cephalus.myopenid.com/ AnalogMan

        Well, they were lauded as heroes, weren’t they? Look at how many lawyers crawled out of the woodwork to defend them, at no cost, because it was the “right thing to do”. On their release, they will no doubt be hailed as martyrs for the cause.

        If they actually serve any significant portion of their sentences, it will be interesting to see whether they will still be comfortable with that role.

  • jay11

    I know some leftists like this. Scary….

  • plaintruthforidiots

    If this happened in the U.K., I can guarantee you they would all have received suspended sentences, and wouldn’t have done an hour of jail time. LOL at the term ‘alleged white supremacists’ – ‘white supremacists’ meaning ‘white people who simply want to live around their own kind’.

    If you can’t choose who you live around, WHO tells you who to live around? Doesn’t that make you a slave, if somebody else is forcing you to live with people you don’t want to? Doesn’t that make the people telling you who you HAVE to live with, a slavemaster?

    • Xerxes22

      The only reason they got any jail time is because they launched their attack in a popular crowded restaurant. The owner may have had some powerful friends or some family or friends of some VIP were eating there at the time. If they had attacked the WNs at some non public place with no outside witnesses than these clowns would probably have just received probation.

  • Jaego

    Unbelievable – for once the system worked. Justice is a beautiful and increasingly rare thing.

  • http://jewamongyou.wordpress.com/ Reuben H

    I doubt they’ll serve their full sentences. Still, I’m pleased that some sort of justice was administered in this case. Had they been black, we would be hearing about the “Bloomington Five” 24/7.

    • http://www.awpn.net/ Celestial Time

      It won’t really matter. The effect of a guilty plea with multiple years in prison is a pretty good hedge against future disturbances where White people are just trying to have a civilized meeting. I’m the kind of guy that — whenever they get out and wherever they happen to be — would love to organize a nice little gathering in their vicinity to see if these cretins learned their lesson.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        Yes; with a guilty plea, one can’t appeal the conviction. These doofuses can appeal their sentences, but if in doing so they sufficiently annoy their judge, they could possibly receive more time.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      For violent crimes, they’ll have to serve at least half their sentences before being eligible for parole hearings.

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    Perhaps if they had lived in the indianapolis or Gary areas for awhile, they might have been enlightened before committing this attack (but only if they lived in a mostly black area, not a mostly white one, where they could claim to be experiencing “diversity” while really avoiding it).

      As I recall, the conference wasn’t exactly “disrupted” a few years ago; it was cancelled outright because some of these “brave antifa heroes” called to anonymously threaten the staff at the hotels – one after another – where the conference was planned to be held.

  • Unperson

    “The Sutherlins have maintained they had planned to stage a “peaceful protest,” but security video shows as many as 18 men entering Ashford House, some wearing masks and carrying batons and other club-like objects.”

    A peaceful protest entails standing outside an event, holding placards — NOT charging into a private business for some ideologically-driven skull-cracking. The mere fact that the defense are allowed to offer this ridiculous, obviously false alibi is a crime in itself. Also a crime, in my books, is the media’s continued use of the word “brawl” for what was clearly a one-sided ambush. “Brawl” implies two more-or-less evenly-matched opposing groups having a fair fight. How “evenly-matched” is it when one group commits a premeditated assault on another group sitting at a table eating and chatting?

    That said, I’m pleasantly surprised the court took their offenses as seriously as this. The victims were (IIRC) Neo-Nazis of one sort or another — and not sensible AR-style race-realists — and so not really “people like us.” Well, not people like me, anyhow. But even so, there are two important things to remember here: even Neo-Nazis, so long as they aren’t promoting violence, have the right to meet peacefully in a restaurant to discuss their concerns without getting pole-axed by rampaging lunatics; and, if these Antifa HAD gotten away with this, and these attackers had been released, their next target WOULD be sensible AR-style race-realists like us. Followed by attacks on Birchers, then on Republicans, then on RINOs, and then eventually on centrist Democrats deemed insufficiently committed to Obamunism.

    • Michael Ryan

      How would anyone else at the establishment know there were supposed “neo-Nazis” there if it weren’t for the marauding band of hammer-wielders bringing the violence to the restaurant? Were they wearing their favorite Hitler shirts? Sensible is a man that can sit in a restaurant and not cause a scene. Labels are irrelevant in that case.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    The Sutherlins have maintained they had planned to stage a ‘peaceful protest,’

    SURE they did:

    One witness told Fox Chicago News that, just before the brawl, the attackers gathered in a lot near the restaurant. They were dressed entirely in black, wearing hoodies and bandannas to conceal their identity…He said they loudly chanted political slogans. Then, armed with baseball bats, nunchuks and hammers, they ran screaming through the restaurant’s front door.

    Five men charged in connection with a brawl

    –Chicago Tribune

    It now appears that a vicious brawl at a south suburban restaurant on Saturday involved hammer-wielding “anti-fascists” attacking a group of self-professed ‘white nationalists.’

        You’re not the only one who has served time, and nobody really cares why or what you did in the joint, Michael. I’m an ex-con too who has also fought these antifas in the streets many times during my teenage years, but that’s nobody’s business anyway.

        When guys like you and the likes of engleman stop yapping about their personal tree all the time, we might start to see the White forest here.

          If it’s noones business, why in the world did you feel the need to inform us that you were an “anti-antifas warrior” who has also done time in prison? was there any point to your comment aside from jumping on the “personal attack bandwagon” that seems to be rolling through town today ?

          Also, comparing anyone here to the self righteous imbecile john Engleman is incredibly cruel and insulting, and as such, totally unnecessary on a civilized site such as Amren.

        We’re not dealing with real lateral thinkers here. Their idea of fighting fascism probably started on some hot summer night when mom refused to buy the proper amount of hot pockets and pizza rolls for the weekly Sutherlin boys’ pajama party.

        • Michael_C_Scott

          Not real bright at thinking ahead, either. An incident like this could easily mean a group in a concealed carry state (not Illinois) could use an open BBS to arrange restaurant meetings while packing handguns, waiting for nincompoops like HARM to show up with clubs and hammers. Bang, bang, bang: a bunch of dead masked commies for the police to come and clean up. In fact, it’s practically an invitation for someone to set a trap like this. So long as they made the arrangements to carry heat in person and not online, and kept their mouths shut afterward, nobody would ever know it had been planned as a deliberate, baited ambush, though legally, it wouldn’t matter if investigators did know, so long as the armed diners had CCW permits.

    Hoosier Anti-Racism Movement????? Really? It’s almost laughable. Almost.

  • ViktorNN

    I hope some of the victims take things to the next level and file some SPLC-style lawsuits against these sociopaths. This scum should be working for a long time to pay off settlements to the victims.

    And who knows what a thorough investigation might uncover? There may very well be links of communication between these criminals and people like Tim Wise and Mark Potok. There is very likely some older “pro” anti-racist telling these kids what to do, how to do it, and FUNDING it.

      Monetary judgement is probably already a part of the guilty plea – those usually are.

      I think the idea of fighting “fascism” came to them because they’re dim-witted high school dropouts with tattoos, no real prospects, no ambition, and casting themselves as Great Revolutionary Heroes (tm.) in some sort of Neo-Marxist “vanguard army” was a great way to sleep with equally dim-witted women.

      I used to know a guy a lot like them in the early 1990s, who in June or July of 1993 decided he was going to be a Great Revolutionary Hero (tm.): the next David Koresh. After a few months of trying to tolerate Ron’s incessant “bible babble”, I dropped him and haven’t seen him since. He did apparently later meet with and inspire Timothy McVeigh’s attack in Oklahoma City.

      Yes; the term Great Revolutionary Hero (tm.) is meant to be insulting.

    The Question to ask what about the white supremacists, did the start anything? All i can say for the Sutherlins,GOOD FOR THEM!!

    • http://www.awpn.net/ Celestial Time

      So you you give a congratulations to those who are convicted and proven to be instigators of armed violence against people you had to ask a question about whether or not they even started anything?

    • Michael_C_Scott

      Police and prosecutors say the alleged “white supremacists” were eating dinner at a restaurant. The Sutherlins also beat up restaurant staff – including the manager – when they tried to stop the attack against their peaceful, paying customers.

      Surely the manager would have called police on the party of diners if they had been the troublemakers or if they had been the ones to beat him with hammers and clubs.

      Indeed it will be good for them. They might even learn something.

      But consider this: if their victims really were such scary Nazi skinhead types, then these Sutherlins, and their so far unapprehended accomplices, may have made some bad enemies. Enemies who know where they live. Enemies who have friends.

      These Antifas may just discover that they’ve kicked over a hornets’ nest. You know, I kind of hope they really are Nazis.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        I doubt there really are any genuine Nazis anymore. My maternal grandfather was a Welsh/German electrician, draftsman and watch repairman postwar, and he figured the ex-Nazis would settle down and do something useful. They did.

        He did go to China before Nixon did, though, perhaps because he’d been there during the war and wanted to see things again.

    It’s hard to believe that they worked themselves up to do something so stupid without the aid of a federal informant. But we can rule out that possibility since the anti-white DOJ has absolutely no interest in this case. Incredibly, I think they were part of a much larger group-can we eventually get to see the videotape through a FOIA request?

  • whiteyyyyy

    If I just seen the pictures without the story I’d probably think they were neo nazi or something. Very weird story, they dont really look the liberal types. These guys were badly brainwashed somewhere down the line.

    • curri

      The patriarch of the Sutherlin clan was a Sixties hippie and self-styled anarchist.

      Bloomington IN is the home of the University of Indiana. Does that answer your question?

  • Morris Thecat

    It seems to me that in the first half of the 20th century almost all reporters were men. Women usually wrote the inane fashion, gossip, and home maker columns. Has anyone else noticed how INANE the media has become since it has been infiltrated and feminized? Just read this report about an attack on some men sitting at a restaurant and the inane female reporter asking why the victims weren’t investigated? The female mind is insane, and the state of the country is due to white men not keeping women out of the professions.

    • StillModerated

      Women in the workforce actually pushed blacks on to the dole, thereby contributing to the problem we enjoy today.

  • Michael_C_Scott

    One amusing aspect to the relatively lenient sentences they received is that their pretentions to being “political prisoners” is going to substantially hurt their chances with a parole board. Parole boards like to see remorse and rehabilitation, not defiant Great Revolutionary Heroes (tm.)

    • StillModerated

      The group’s acronym, HARM, won’t really help either.

  • rebelcelt

    If this happened in the south. There would be a lot of dead marxists that bought clubs to a gunfight. Guess that is why we do not hear of such things in the south.

  • Roddion Raskolnikov

    Another argument for getting a CCW permit? Surely even “white supremacists” have the right to defend themselves against a brutal attack like this?

    Strange.They don’t even look like liberals …

  • StillModerated

    They got jail time despite hiring a jewish lawyer. The judge must have been a Crip. I notice that these fools did not drive to Virginia to disrupt a League of the South meeting. They might have found themselves severely ventilated. But honest Chicago people can’t pack heat.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      Unfortunately, since Chicago makes the rules for the whole state, nobody else in Illinois can, either.

  • ATBOTL

    The Illinois state prison system is not a good place for anti-racist hipsters. They will be tested by scary blacks soon after arriving who will try to take their food/commissary items.

    Inmates read newspaper to see who their new neighbors will be, so it’s likely that white inmates will know who they are and will shun them. Without protection, they may end up forced to give their property to and hold contraband for black gangs or worse.

    It’s not about “Aryan Brotherhood,” it’s about the fact most young white inmates in a state like IL are racially conscious and many are members of subtly racial street gangs.

    I wonder which side of the cafeteria these losers will sit on when they get to NU.

  • bryan smith

    Absolute Scum

  • whitepony87

    Ironically it will be the blacks who beat and then likely rape them once they arrive in prison.
