Wal-Mart Pepper-Spraying: LAPD Releases Description of Suspect

Los Angeles Times, November 25, 2011

Los Angeles police gave a fuller description Friday of the woman who pepper-sprayed fellow shoppers at a Porter Ranch Wal-Mart, apparently in an effort to gain a competitive edge during a Thanksgiving night “Black Friday” sale on video-game consoles.

Police described the woman as a Latina, in her early to late 30s, wearing black pants and a black sweater during the late Thursday night assault. LAPD Det. Gus Villanueva said the woman stands about 5-foot-3 and weighs about 140 pounds.

Although more people may have been affected, 10 customers were treated at the scene by city firefighters, he said. Witnesses said the woman was bent on nabbing an Xbox game console, which was one of the Black Friday specials at the store.

There were reports that the woman managed to buy one of the consoles, and Villanueva said LAPD detectives were reviewing video surveillance and receipts in an effort to identify the suspect.

    If someone 5’3″ and 140 pounds peppersprayed me, I`d use them to wipe my eyes with before throwing them in the garbage can on the way out of the store…

    This is an example of the typical anti social savagery that goes on in these “communities” all the time. This violent act was perpetrated so that the attacker could secure some type of electronic toy (cell phone, video game etc) can you imagine what this animal would be capable of in a Katrina like situation? Stay as far away from them as possible….

    This is another reason why LIBERALS move away from minorites/multicult as fast as they can. Being RENTERS more than Owners, they can move out that much quicker.

    she is refusing to talk to the police. She is also a breeder with two anchors. Also there were virtually no whites at the walmart that night, it was all some kind of brown, anchor babies illegal aliens, mexicans , Arabs blacks. It did not look like the America I grew up in at all, more like Brazil , yet it was in an upper class white area. It says so much about their culture and what we have to deal with now. As someone who used to buy books at the Goodwill I have been assaulted and stalked by “Hispanics” , so much so I has to quit going there. This is how they take over, mass mobs.

    Ah, another one of those “wise Latinas,” I see.

    There were reports that the woman managed to buy one of the consoles

    I don’t see how she was allowed to leave the store in one piece, much less make a purchase.

    A few years ago there was a melee outside a California school that was giving away used Macintosh computers. Clueless commentators saw this as a sign of the Mac’s popularity, but an examination of photos of the event showed that all participants in the melee were Hispanic.

    When I heard this on the news, I knew right away it had to be a black or hispanic. To those on here who seem to defend hispanics over blacks, I say they are one and the same. Take your pick, living in Mexico or Africa. Or Asia or Pakistan. This is what America has been flooded with and will become. A nation full of barbarians no matter where they are from.

    Wonder if this is what Newt calls “humane”…

    Whoever takes it upon him or her self to write The Decline and Fall of the American Empire centuries from now, he or she will devote an entire chapter to Black Friday.

    I noticed in the small print in a lot of the TV spots on Thanksgiving Eve and Day that Massachusetts does not allow most retailers to be open at any time on Thanksgiving. That state doesn’t get much right, but at least the state where the first Thanksgiving was held has sense enough to keep something sacred. The only reason why this matters is because certain retailers opened last night a couple of hours before midnight on Thursday.

    If, in the coming years, we see a concerted effort on the part of politicians everywhere to limit the start of Black Friday to a certain time early in the morning after Thanksgiving, then we know we might be on track to reverse our decline.

    I was in Kansas City for the long weekend on a temporary job. On Thursday night when I settled into my hotel room, I was channel surfing, and one of the local newscasts promised “complete and comprehensive coverage” of Black Friday. As opposed to what? Incomplete and non-comprehensive coverage? How does one make news coverage of a bunch of drones lined up outside a big box mart overnight and then watching them stampede into the store like herds of ungulates “complete and comprehensive?” I suppose they would have had to send a news crew to every Wal-Martinez in Kansas City, from way over here in Olathe to way over there in Blue Springs. Also, Black Friday isn’t a “news” event that lends itself to complicated plot lines, so there’s no need for “comprehensive” coverage. Film the waiting drones, film the stampede at opening, grab a few interviews of shoppers checking out, keep an ear on the police scanner for murders, robberies and tramplation deaths and send a crew to those Wal-Marts just in case, cut, edit, and you’re done.

  • Mr.White

    Any guess on what this criminal’s immigration status might be? My guess is she’s an illegal invader with several anchor spawn in tow. No worries however, the authorities and certainly not the MSM will dare ask that question because they might offend this invader! We all know how sensitive hispancs are to this question, especially when they happen to be illegal. Then that question becomes intolerable. Even worse, this woman will avoid all repercussions of this assault and battery because she’s hispanic!

  • Mr.White

    Rest assured, third-world values do not stop at the Rio Grande! With third-world invaders from mexico, you simply get more lawless third-world values to contend with; as this woman proves yet again.

    On a side note, I did not forget to capitalize the word “mexico.” it was intentional….

    Yes, Anonymous No. 6…to Newt, they’re “natural Republicans”. The Walmart in a nice part of Nassau County, NY is the same kind of Walmart as this one. Loaded with non-whites and non-Americans. A very low-class crowd.

    It was probably Sonia Sotomayor…

    Reply to #6. I would like to respectfully ask a question. Would you rather vacation in Spain or Nigeria? Uganda or Peru? Chile or The Democratic Republic of the Congo? South Africa? Granted, Mexico is not so good now because of the drug war but sometimes it is important to be able to see the lesser of two evils.

    If this woman with the pepper spray had been white, she would be in custody just a few hours after the incident.

  • Jack Krak

    I trust that the police realize that the description they released applies to probably 25% of the LA metro area. This is just a step or two above saying they are looking for “a woman”.

  • jdavis

    Remember this: no one took this animal down, she paid and left the store.

    Who is going to protect you and yours? no one but you.

    Wake up, the war is on and you must be able and willing to defend yourself and whats left of your civilized community.

    Witnesses said the woman was bent on nabbing an Xbox game console, which was one of the Black Friday specials at the store.

    From the LA Times:

    Witnesses described the frenzied scene to the Los Angeles Times, describing how shoppers-gone-wild tore down video game displays, trampled merchandise and shoved each other for the deeply-discounted goods.

    I don’t care,’ Nakeasha Contreras, a 20 year old who arrived after the incident, told the Times. ‘I’m still getting my TV.’

    Nakeasha Contreras? Well, she’s got both sides covered!!

    All of Mal-Wart’s products come from China so why don’t the execs in Bentonville bring over some Chinese police with the “junk” to keep order? Maybe the same ones that broke up the occupy movement in Tienneman Square?

    Shoppers-gone-wild? Hello Jerry Springer? Your agent is calling:

    Mal-Wart Black Fridays is going pay-per-view next year with you as host.

    The Buffalo News says their policy on reporting the description of a suspect is that they will only print the description if it is relevant to the incident (ie. racially motivated).

    The result is that people who live in the area and are vulnerable to these crimes have no way of identifying suspects.

    Here are three examples:

    “Stay as far away from them as possible….”

    Why can’t we keep them as far away as possible?

    If the government wants to make serious revenue to pay for welfare it should slap big taxes on malt liquor, spinner hub caps, tortillas, and video games.

    We can start that reversal, one person at a time. This is one media driven feeding frenzy that we may all treat as “Atlas,” by “shrugging.” Simply refuse to participate. I spent not one penny on the Friday after Thanksgiving, and will not. Ever!

    (And YES, you cynics out there, I DID have money left in my checking account. Merry Christmas!)

    It occurs to me the day after Thanksgiving in the USA is not called White Friday.

    I am poster #6. I respectfully do not like that term, “the lesser of two evils”. It ends up being evil just the same. The Republicans use it all the time. Remember Juan McCain and Arnie….we heard that term used all the time.

    Mexico has never been a place I would want to live. Drug wars or no. As I said I do not want to live in any nonwhite country and I do not want nonwhites in my country. In either scenario, nonwhites can and never will have nor contribute to a decent, clean, civilized nation. This is 2011 and I haven’t ever seen a nonwhite nation that has progressed in any of these areas.

    Semi-related news:

    Wal-Martinez is going to break through in DC proper. To grease the skids, WM had to agree to hire affirmative action worthies from the District and not to sell guns or ammo.

    First off, I wish WM would get out the gun/ammo retail business. I want the retail end of at least one American industry to be the exclusive province of non-big boxes.

    However, next Black Friday should be really interesting, with WMs in D.C. itself. Not that it’s a good idea to hang around a WM parking lot in the DC ghettos in the middle of the night, but one of our people could be so adventurous and bring along an HD video recorder.

    Besides, I thought DC’s blacks were filtering into PG County. They claim that DC will be entirely white liberal yuppie, or at least non-black, in 20 years. Why should this matter anymore?

    Sobering. Of course black Friday affected me as much as last year. None. It gives you a measure of freedom to not need any of the junk that is so priced by the crowd. What worries me, how will it go when things really needed, like winter boots and underwear, will be in short supply. I remember East Germany, where you automatically cued up when you saw a line in front of a store. Will they stand in line and wait their turn, or will they act like on black friday? I am afraid it will be mayhem. They will kill you for a sack of potatoes.

    You are so right about “news” coverage, Question Diversity! We were up visiting my mother for Thanksgiving, and all the “news” channels would cover was the greed and stupidity of the US consumer. Once I’d had enough, I said I’d drive home alone, immediately, if the TV was not immediately turned off and left that way for the rest of Thursday evening and all day Friday.

    We went for a pair of nice walks to a park Friday evening and in the foothills over Boulder during the afternoon.

    It was sunny, and the trails were dry. We watched deer and rabbits foraging on the south-facing slopes. A red-tailed hawk got something while we watched – probably a squirrel.

    The older I get, the more I positively hate the garbage that masquerades as TV “news”. At the age of 45, I don’t imagine how I’ll last another 30 years or so. Maybe I don’t have to.
