St. Louis Teen Pleads Guilty to “Knockout Game” Attack

STL Today, January 9, 2013

A St. Louis teenager has pleaded guilty to second-degree assault in a “knockout game” attack in November 2011.

Kwame Thomas, 18, of the 2800 block of Osceola Street, admitted to assaulting a 54-year-old man near Osceola and Nebraska Avenue.

{snip}

The victim told police that he was approached by a group of people just after 7 p.m. on Nov. 20, 2011. One asked for a cigarette, but the man said he did not have one. He was then struck in the eye and fell to the ground, where others in the group began hitting him in the head and body while yelling “knockout game.”

{snip}

The “knockout game” is what some perpetrators call unprovoked attacks on innocent people, where the violence itself is the motive.

    Oh yes. This is the news we’re not supposed to notice while one nut after another screams from a podium about inanimate object. Note no guns or even deadly weapons were used here, or are really ever used in Knockout Martin Luther King attacks. All Bellcurvius needs to be dangerous (and sometimes, in one St. Louis case, homicidal) is a gang of themselves and their own attached fists and feet.

    Time to ban assault fists. Andrew Cuomo should scream about it.

    • veritas_lux_mea

      Diversity is a deadly weapon, and the only one we should ban for public safety.

    • IstvanIN

      Although not the majority, like the Jews, a lot of Italian-Americans, as well as Irish-Americans, hate White Protestant America and will use any excuse to bring us down via their pet blacks. Not all Italian-Americans, but enough. I have heard Mario Cuomo moan on and on about discrimination against Italians, and I am sure his son has the same hate-America feelings.

      • AutomaticSlim

        Trust me on this, most Italian Americans in NY are EXTREMELY conservative and want nothing to do with the blacks or the Cuomos.

        • tickyul

          Wow, I have met/known a ton of Italians……very strange….many of them are Wiggers.

      • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

        Ahem. Remember, you’re talking to someone with quite a bit of Italian DNA.

        The Cuomos: There was once a study done about white ethnic groups and American political involvement. The study controlled for a lot of variables, and it found that Scandinavians, Irish Catholics (not Irish Protestants) and Italians are the the three most active groups relative to what one would expect of them based on a lot of factors. I can already hear a lot of you saying, “What about Jews?” Actually, that study concluded that Jewish participation in American politics is slightly underneath what is expected of them, controlling for all the factors. The United State Senate notwithstanding. Of course Jewish Americans will be more politically active than almost everyone, but considering some of their natural and self-administered advantages, they are a bit below average.

        Therefore, in a city and metro area like New York, where there are (or were) a lot of Italians and Irish Catholics, you’ll have a lot of Italians and Irish Catholics in city and state politics. But because of a lot of other factors, any Italians in statewide politics, like the Cuomos are, will have to be intolerably left wing, especially to Italian-American voters elsewhere, such as St. Louis.

        Meanwhile, the Italian neighborhood of St. Louis City rarely sees blacks “be stayin dere” for very long. They were able to resist the ghettoization of the city even before it mostly stopped and shows signs of reversing.

        • The__Bobster

          You mean the fact that one group, comprising 2.6% of the American population, contributes over 50% of the DNC’s funding (and a lot the of RNC’s funding, too) means they’re not “politically active”? You don’t have to be a foot soldier when you’ve paid for the foot soldiers.

          • IstvanIN

            They are over-represented in all levels of government.

          • Sloppo

            I suppose it is justifiable to say that the 2% of the population which occupies 33% of the supreme court is over-represented.

          • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

            I kind of regret bringing it up. The person who informed me about the study is on the national board of directors of the Council of Conservative Citizens, Brent Nelson, and in one of his books, America Balkanized. (Unfortunately, not available from AR’s store). So I don’t think the point in either the study or Dr. Nelson writing about it had anything to do with “covering up Jewish influence.” The point was figuring out which ethnic groups punch above their weight when it becomes to political involvement, and by “weight,” the study involved controlling for a lot of factors. Of course a Klitschko will punch harder than Sheldon from Big Bang Theory. Of course American Jews will be “over” representative in the formal or informal political process. But the conclusion of the study is that when you take certain and a lot of ethnic advantages and disadvantages into consideration, in the United States, Scandinavians, Irish Catholics and Italians punch above their weight in the political arena. One other conclusion is that Americans who think of themselves ethnically punch above their weight compared to white people who consider themselves just plain ole regular Americans.

            I can see that in my own state. Whites in St. Louis think ethnically, whites in Kansas City think “Americanly.” Ergo, when you’re involved in statewide politics, you spend a lot more time and money in St. Louis than you do in Kansas City. (St. Louis has a significantly bigger Jewish population (tending to the Reform) than Kansas City, and a bigger and more active LGBTQMIAPDLOLPLPLTH community (tending to the Irish and Jewish in ethnicity) than Kansas City.) One really simple “for dummies” answer why the boss was able to “surprise” everyone and win the Republican Primary for Senate back in August is his Congressional district he represented for twelve years just happened to overlay the most active and most politically involved and charged conservative Republican voters and activists in the state. Robbers rob banks because that’s where the money is, Republican statewide candidates spend a lot of time in western and southern St. Louis County and St. Charles County for the same reason. On the other side of the ledger, statewide Democrats spend a lot of time in St. Louis for the same reason — Lots of interested gays and Jews who are willing to write checks.

        • IstvanIN

          I know nothing of your DNA, and most Italian-Americans are loyal Americans, and most are not egg-plant lovers, but your political class is very anti-WASP. Also, Italians Americans frequently, and annoyingly, refer to themselves as “Italian”, despite the fact that they never got any closer to Italy than Staten Island. We don’t run around calling ourselves Hungarian-American, let alone “Hungarian”, we are American and white, first and foremost.

            IstvanIN,

          • IstvanIN

            Good luck with your lawsuit. I stand by my comment. I didn’t say “you” or Italians weren’t white. As for the two groups most likely to refer to their “nationality” as something other than American, it is the Italians and the Irish. Of course their are exceptions to every rule, and among “Italian-American” politicians Tom Tancredo is a good man, as is Lou Barletta.

            As for the last comment, you are far more likely to have African blood than I.

        that is the sentiment that motivated Ted Kennedy’s immigration reform in the 60s. He listened to his father’s rantings about being discriminated against, took it to heart (unlike his two dead brothers), and took revenge. He really is getting the last laugh.

        • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

          Some discrimination. By the time his second son ran for President, he was the 12th richest man in America. In an era where anti-Irish discrimination was more openly practiced among Boston Brahmin WASPs, Joe Kennedy was able to attend and do well at both Boston Latin Prep and then Harvard, both Brahmin/WASP institutions at the time. He was only ever really a “victim” of discrimination in that Brahmin golf and country clubs didn’t let him him.

          • puffdaddy

            I agree completely – it is an indication of the petty and narcissistic mindset (if letting a woman drown isn’t enough for anyone) of Ted Kennedy.

          • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

            Ted? I’m talking about Joe Kennedy Sr (his father).

          • puffdaddy

            Yes I know but what I am saying is that Ted took his father’s anger over these slights to heart and in revenge, we have his immigration reform act as payback. The one he promised would not “change the complexion of the nation.” Thanks Ted!

      • Alex

        Most Italian-Americans and working-class Irish-Americans loathe blacks with a passion. I never met one of either group who hated WASP America (I’m not saying all are like that), it seems like most are pretty grateful to be in a country where you can (in the old days) pull yourself up by the bootstraps and make a good life for yourself. I lived in upstate New York for a while and as AutomaticSlim pointed out, Italian-Americans there are by and large very conservative.

        • Pelayo

          In my Italo-American neighborhood in Philadelphia where I grew up during the 50s and 60s that bordered and Irish neighborhood ,the Irish or few Anglo-Saxon types were called Meddigans – the Itanglish word for the aforementioned ethnicity and sometimes Harps. They called us Dagos and Guineas. It was generally a playful exchange of verbal broadsides punctuated by an occasional fist fight but (God I HATE this expression!) “at the end of the day” there were quite a few intermarriages between us. The Irish guys were bewitched by the dark eyed, olive complected Italian girls and our boys fell prey to the green or blue eyed, alabaster skinned Irish Coleens with just a touch of freckles. We shared a common faith and a European heritage although customs differed and of course there was the language thing. There were a good number of kids with names like Sean Esposito and Carmella Donaghy.
          Lots of the men back then had served in WWII or in Korea and many owned
          firearms that were brought back as souvenirs. My neighbor had a German
          Mauser, his next store neighbor had an Arisaka bolt action rifle. They
          use to hunt together with them. In all those years there was never a
          shooting. We also had two brothers who were lower level Mob guys who
          took care of the illegal lottery and unstamped cigarettes purchased down
          South and smuggled up North. As far as we knew they never killed anyone
          either.

          Our common impression of Blacks was formed via experiences that were never good ones. I think that when Blacks began to infiltrate our neighborhood and crime spiked, they became a common enemy who united us. The first shots we ever heard were when the Blacks, with the help of unscrupulous “Block busting” realtors, began to gain a hold. There also muggings of the elderly people, armed robberies and attempted rapes. Within five years the neighborhood completely “changed”. That was the popular euphemism of that period. The majority of both peoples moved either to the Roxborough section or to the Northeast. The drivers on the Route A bus that traveled up Henry Avenue in Roxborough would yell out “Ravioli Road!” when he get to the stop were most of the former neighbors lived. Both of those areas are beginning to deteriorate as well. Others with more resources moved to Cherry Hill in New Jersey.

      I may get moderated for this, but this is a truth I am not afraid of. During slavery the majority of blacks were needed as field hands, a small fraction for semi-killed labor (carpenters, wheelwrights, blacksmiths, shoemakers etc) and fewer yet for housework.

      Blacks were assigned tasks based on the owners’ perception of their intelligence levels. The owners also believed in selective breeding as they did with their cattle and racehorses. Even in the 18th and 19th centuries people knew that intelligence features could be passed down through heredity. Intelligence was not one of the features they were looking for in a field hand, actually quite the opposite, as a strong back, good reproduction rate, good health, and low intelligence were the prime targets. During this process and because of slaves being traded and sold we can also throw in the ugly consequence of inbreeding. Another unfortunate factor is the owners occasionally enjoying some free sex down in the “quarters”.

      These days you can see the aftermath of those breeding experiments in your local ghettos. The highly reproductive, low intelligence, strong backed descendants now live in your local ghettos or prisons and at the other end of the scale we find the ones with the slightly higher IQ’s enjoying the fruits of Affirmative Action or in Washington DC.

      It really hasn’t changed all that much.

      There’s a movement today that’s trying to re-classify anyone under 25 as a child. It’s based on research that the brain isn’t fully developed until about that age.

      • http://twitter.com/seedymedia r j p

        A negroe’s brain isn’t any different between 12 and 25, only changes when it gets old (and helpless?).

      • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

        What that “movement” wants to do is to make criminal punishments shorter and less strict for people under 25. I don’t buy it one bit: The science shows that the brain isn’t fully hard wired until age 25 (something actuarial data seem to bear out and insurance companies know full well). But it doesn’t mean that people under 25 can’t have a basic understanding of the difference between right and wrong. Not need not be that old nor that intelligent to do that.

        Of course, this “logic” won’t apply to voting.

The keys will come with it, leaving the electronics behind. Soak the upper part in hot water in your kitchen sink for a few hours and then let it dry before reassembling. You’ll regret it if you leave coffee in a keyboard and allow dust to accumulate.

      I am from Minnesota. I will go to this link. I believe that it took place in St. Cloud and that is the sad thing about blacks. Now St. Cloud is a town in Stearns County. Stearns County has historically been absolutely German. It was (and still is fundamentally) THE land in Minnesota that spelt GERMAN FARMING COMMUNITY! Nat’l Geographic had a spot on it a number of years ago and the author of Lake Wobegon was commissioned to write the piece while another photographed this area in black and white photographs. You can see it all there. Good, hard working, corn fed German boys and girls. In other words, these are the all American kids of (near) old that make memories so special at the Prom. Good people, good stuff. Now you have black people there, now you have Somalis as well in even bigger numbers, and I am sure Consuela is finding her way to have kids in a land made nice by the white man. I have to add to all this a memory of mine. It was on the evening news a little less than 20 years ago. A Jewish professor that at St. Cloud State got news time on televisions speaking out on rampant racism at the college up there. He even mentioned on how one student told him that the SS (circa WW ll) in Germany had virtue! Oh dear! Call an ambulance, now! Please! So now the school has had years of reeducation. Lots of diversity training etc.. And this knock out game is just one of the many fine actions included from the newer communities moved into St. Cloud. Gosh, I wish white people would become more aware of the nice and charming communities we create and some others seem so bent on destroying. Now I hear that St. Cloud has BAD areas. Unthinkable only a generation ago. Again, I wish white people would reacquaint ourselves to our selves. It’s really time to start turning ourselves on again.

      • The Ice Queen

        I am from Minnesota too. I remember the dust up at St. Cloud State. What kicked it off was a note found in a dorm that was deemed racist. Can’t remember what it said off hand, but the school went into a frenzy, the hand wringing began, the media drove up their electric bills covering it. The campus went on a soul searching mission that only white people can do with all the bells and whistles, and promises of change. Some of the complaints from non whites were things like “not feeling welcome.” Ah, such miseries. When white blood is being spilled in the streets every day, it’s hard for me to drum up sympathy for someone feeling a little left out because they do not fit in with the 4-H club.

  • A multiracial indivdual

    Is there any data that suggests that violence is linked directly to race? It seems like violence is correlated to IQ, not race, and any discrepancies are the result of populations having different median IQ. Black kids with an IQ of 125 are probably not playing the knockout game. I have never seen tables adjusted for IQ. Is there anyone with handsome stores of data that can help me?

    • AutomaticSlim

      You mean all 0.001% of them?

      • A Multiracial Individual

        If you have ever looked at an IQ chart for Whites and Blacks you will notice there is still a considerable overlap. I’m sure violence is still not prevalent at the 100 IQ range.

        • IstvanIN

          There is also the lack of impulse control that blacks are noted for.

          • A multiracial individual

            Is impulse control, or lack of it a consequence of IQ? If that is true then a black guy with an IQ of 100 should have more impulse control than a white guy with an IQ of 85

      • Andy

        About 0.5%. I know they’ve measured testosterone differences between the races, which is not linked to IQ differences between males and females and seems unlikely to be linked to racial IQ differences. On the other hand, I know that crime and welfare-dependence are much more common among low-IQ whites. Not as common as among low-IQ blacks, but that may be because more white people with low IQs have family members with high IQs to raise and look after them.

      Are you saying that IQ isn’t correlated with race? How about testosterone levels?
      Perhaps, propensity for violence is also correlated with race.

      • A multiracial individual

        Is an IQ 100 white guy just as likely to be a criminal as an IQ100 black guy? I have not seen data on this comparison. (IQ matching)

        • alex

          It’s irrelevant. I don’t care why wild animals attack humans or other animals.

        • alex

          It’s irrelevant. The smartest animal on the planet can be unpredictable and violent. It’s attack is vicious and devastating. I am talking about chimps.
          Generally, I don’t care why animals attack humans or other animals. I preffer to avoid them.

            That is acceptable.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            Lions and tigers are considered different species, but are interfertile. Dogs and wolves are different species (Canis canis and Canis lupus, respectively), but are very interfertile. Llamas, alpacas and vicunas can all interbreed, and among avians, the different species of acrtic terns form an interesting cline of inter-fertility.

          • a multiracial individual

            I have no problem with humans being seperate sub-species. What I object to is the grotesque proposition that some races are animals (not human).

          • Michael_C_Scott

            But we are. I am a species of animal. If I decided I was Homo Sapiens ferox – and I already have – you have nothing to say about the matter. Africans can go and be whatever they want. If they’re “people”, I don’t want to be one anymore. You and I are not of the same species because *I* have resigned from it.

            Now you know.

        • Tom_in_Miami

          I would say that the 100 IQ black guy would be less likely to be a criminal than an 85 IQ black guy, but still more likely than a 100 IQ white guy because while the IQ is determined largely by genetics, there is still an environment working on the attitudes of both the white and black guy. The environment for the black is far more conducive to crime than the environment of the white guy. At least that is the way it appears to this writer who had a hell of a time in college statistics. I don’t mean to sound like a “know it all.”

      Somewhere in The Bell Curve Murray and Herrnstein show that half of the gap in white/black incarceration rates is explained by the difference in mean IQ. This was done using incarceration rates of the early 1990s.

      The homicide rate for black men is 8x as high as the homicide rate for white men, which is 4x as high as the homicide rate for Asian men. Since the mean IQ gap is only one standard deviation for white/black and one fifth of a standard deviation for white/Asian the answer to your question is yes. These data are available in The Color of Crime.

    • Luca

      I believe you have latched on to an element of truth but in a very broad general way. I believe crime comes from all intelligence levels, however those at the lower end of the IQ scale tend to be stupid enough to commit low level, senseless, high-risk & low reward crimes. Therefore they are more easily caught. Much of the problem may lie in testosterone levels vs. IQ. There are also the factors of ethics, personal responsibility, culture/family life, fear of consequences, and guilty conscience.

      So when you add up the ingredients of low IQ, high testosterone, little ethics, no responsibility, ghetto-culture/no father, no clue about consequences and no conscience what you end up with most times is a black male age 15 to 40. All you need do is add a little religious fanaticism and you get a suicide bomber.

      • Joseph

        I *think* that the suicide bombers are a little more forward-thinking than these troglodytes and are at least capable of holding a (flawed) idealogy. I further think that “Kwame” here and his kin have no ideals beyond immediate gratification with a concept of “future” in terms of seconds to days.

    • SPYDERx13

      A multiracial individual: “Is there any data that suggests that violence is linked directly to race?”
      I have yet to read of one case of Whites playing Knock Out King.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        I’ve never heard of whites doing it either. Surely if violence was strictly the product of stupidity, we’d see some of the more dim-witted whites playing “Knock Out”. What seems to be at work here is a combination of obtuse individual stupidity and a negro culture that is irremediably toxic. Culture, after all is how people act when they’re not thinking; it’s the behavioral “default setting”, so to speak.

    When I was in the army in Germany, I knew this fraulein who liked black guys (why?) and had been married to one. That one guy I did happen to like but they had eventually divorced while I knew them both. One day, later, she told me how she invited a black soldier home to have sex with and, instead of having sex, she had to kick him out. Why, I forgot. She would admit to me though, as I liked hanging out with her, that so many blacks seemed “head shot” to her. This all brings me to Kwame, or shall I say, to a one Mr. Johnson, and his photograph, that head shot of his. I know that it requires food, that it must eat as I myself must have food to survive, and I also know that like myself he has a pair of eyes to see out of. It has hands and feet too like I share but there is something all together different about it. When I see a picture of a tiger or a black lab or golden retriever, I see a wonderful animal and would love to romp around with and pet. Yes, if it were possible, having an African lion as a pet would be great (providing it has plenty of room to roam around on and plenty to eat), but when I see Kwame and others of his ilk I am repulsed. So Kwame likes the sport of the knock out game. Can we even do anything with these types of people? Is it even possible?

    • alex

      I would be careful with lions. They may look cute and harmless but can attack at any given moment without provocation even if they need you for food and shelter.
      Sounds familiar?

      • Gerónimo Anónimo

        No it doesn’t. I rather spend time with a lion than with a mayate. They are neither cute nor harmless. I’ll take the big cats any day.

I think anyone convicted of playing the knockout game should get an immediate decade in jail…maybe then they’ll stay home and play xbox.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      Remember the animal rights thugs who in the 1980s used to throw blood or red paint on women wearing furs? Has anyone ever wondered why the same people never tried that with bikers wearing leather? You probably don’t really need to wonder.

      I once wrote a quite good editorial about how the animal rights movement was inherently cowardly and sexist for this reason. Don’t get your hopes up about the Bantus trying this with Banditos or Sons of Silence; nobody wants to be killed if they can help it.

      • PesachPatriot

        Thats actually quite the old joke…the clowns who throw paint on rich old ladies in fur would never dare try it on bikers in leather jackets….you never know w…there might be one just dumb enough to do it, especially if the gentleman isn’t wearing his club jacket or is wearing long sleeves or is dressedp up for a job interview. I myself am looking forward to hearing about the first gang that tries to start trouble near a biker bar.

        I am fairly sympathetic to some animal rights causes and am a member of the aspca but throwing paint on people is unacceptable. I do not see much of a need to wear fur these days when there is all kinds of synthetic materials, but I will not begrudge someone else there right to choose differently…I’m sure you have seen most animal rights activists…most would not be above ground for very long after throwing paint on bikers.

        • Michael_C_Scott

          My op-ed piece about this was back in 1989.

        • Michael_C_Scott

          “I do not see much of a need to wear fur these days when there is all kinds of synthetic materials…”

          Those synthetic materials are generally petroleum products, and the Usual Suspects also don’t want us making anything out of oil. Many of us consume meat, and it seems morally wrong to me to kill steers for food and not also use the hide for leather, the bones for dog kibble and the offal for fertilizer. My winter headwear is a Russian style rabbit hat. I’ve had it 20 years, which is longer than the rabbits would have lived. I have an old Totenkopf badge on it. Women like the hat, but ask why the silver skull & crossbones. There was an old-timer who just about peed himself when he recognized it a few years ago, and relaxed only a little when my wife and daughter were done looking at shoes.

          I have several pairs of leather boots that are old enough to vote, including my old combat boots, which I’ve had resoled twice. The German hobnailed jackboots are older than my mother.

          For my part, respect for animals means one should not cause them unnecessary suffering, and when the animal is dead, one should use as much of it as possible. I suspect my long bones might make a reasonable set of chanter and drones for bagpipes, though it is a pity I’ll never be able to play that set of pipes.

          Animals are not much different from plants. Would you want someone to cut a tree down to make furniture, without wanting the smaller bits to be pulped for paper? Even rayon is cellulose acetate, made from wood pulp.

          People do not posses thick hides or dense fur. We lack sharp claws, and in most cases we lack shearing ridges on our molars. Our children take a very long time to develop, during which time we must protect and teach them. As a collection of closely-related species, we have a few things going for us: first is brains. The second is opposable thumbs. The third is that we are social, so we hunt in packs, but also care for the elderly and disabled. These are why humans are apex predators. We not only eat other animals but we wear their hides. Isn’t the “knockout game” really just a form of unsupervised form of hominid pack hunting behavior?

          • PesachPatriot

            I guess you have a pretty good point here. I am an enthusiastic carnivore and don’t have any problem with responsible hunting or fishing. I just live in a pretty warm place where fur is generally unnecessary. I have been to Colorado before and it can be chilly enough to call for fur…i like your theory on the evolutionary origins of knockout game.

    Twenty-five years ago, when my eyes were not fully opened, I remembered the advice given to me by my then future husband’s great-grandmother on our trip to Naw’lins for Mardi Gras.

Walk away and walk away fast, for they are only going to hurt you.” Most people in the Gulf Coast area know these tricks, others are prey.

    Ah, my neighborhood is getting some attention. It’s not the first time on amren.com.

    Dutchtown (“Deutsch-town”) was a thriving German immigrant community 80 years ago. That’s where the “knockout-king” attack in this article occurred. The German influence on architecture, streetnames, and landmarks is still apparent. Minorities took over the neighborhood over the last thirty years. There are still families around here that can trace their heritage to the first German immigrants in St. Louis, like my own family. Unfortunately, the “dominant culture” (the ghetto thug culture) is having an effect on the remaining white families. It’s not an uncommon to see girls with an obvious German background fraternizing with thugs. And the “youths” are becoming more brazen and violent every day. It’s sad to reflect on what has happened to the neighborhood. I’ve had many unpleasant encounters with the “locals”. It’s what caused me to find this website in the first place. Once you experience diversity up close, the leftist platitudes about race lose all its credibility.

    • The Ice Queen

      I’m proud to say I am a descendant of one of those German immigrants who came through St. Louis. One became an architect, designing many of the old buildings in that city. I won’t give too many details, as I always keep in mind that trolls love to stroll this site on a lazy Saturday afternoon.

      • Roddion Raskolnikov

        Any chance you are related to the Naerts?

        • the ice queen

          No Naerts in the family tree. My German ancestors came to St. Louis in the 1880′s, and my great-great grandfather moved to Minnesota. Everyone with my German last name in the entire state of Minnesota is a decendant of my great-great grandfather. How’s that for a legacy? His brother became an architect in St. Louis, and the firm still exists today.

      Speaking as a St. Louisan with a CCW permit and someone familiar with the Mount (Un)Pleasant neighborhood, the last thing I would do is just loiter around out at night after dark there, even if I was armed. This is why CCW hasn’t been the massive crime deterrent that we hoped it would, because those of us who gets permits suddenly become good cowards.

        No thanks. We’ve already got our hands full with one troublesome minority, and slowly importing another that looks like George Zimmerman.

On a given street corner, there’s a Mexican bodega with an awning that reads, “Mexico Lives Here!” Yeah, if we’re not careful, half of Mexico will be living here before we know it. The only “advantage” is that the Mexicans deflect the blacks.

      Most of the Opel landed about 100 feet up in a tree. It’s probably still there.

      That Opel went end over end through the air. Like I said, I wanted a troop carrier, but I didn’t know we had been cut off. I forgive Serbs, though some I have met mistake me for German. I would very much like to be forgiven someday.
