Leeds University Students Targeted by Gangs in ‘Night Of Terror’

Lucy Sherriff, Huffington Post UK, November 24, 2011

Leeds University has been plagued with another spate of attacks on students, after the city witnessed a “night of terror”, despite the institution claiming to have increased security around the campus.

A masked gang attacked 10 young people between 8pm and 8.30pm on Wednesday, leaving two victims needing hospital treatment, the Leeds Student paper reported.

The parent of one victim told the student paper how he was “smashed in his head from behind, knocked to the floor and stamped and kicked all over his body, including his head”.

“Is this what parents can expect for their children when they go to university in Leeds, that they are to run to and from their accommodation?” they added.

A statement issued by West Yorkshire Police confirmed the victims were mainly students but added “there is nothing to suggest they were specifically target for this reason”.

The incident involved a group of 10 to 15 masked black males who threatened the students into handing over valuables. Some victims were also assaulted, resulting in injuries. {snip}

Inspector Ian Scott, of the local neighbourhood policing team said the series of robberies in such a short space of time was “unusual” and police were working closely with university security to ensure a “joined up approach” to combat the offences.

“I think it is important to clarify there is nothing to suggest students are being specifically targeted”, he added. “People who commit these offences are looking for young people who may have valuables such as mobile phones on them and in this area of Leeds students represent a large proportion of those people.”

    “the incident involved a group of 10 to 15 masked black males who threatened the students into handing over valuables”

    Apparently “flash mobs” have come to the Mother country.

    And this article’s from the very left-wing Huffington Post. I’m surprised they mentioned the race of the hoodlums.

  • AmericaFirst

    The obvious and important fact left unsaid is the race of the victims. If all or mostly non-black, certain students ARE TARGETED, and the attacks ARE race-related. (Yeah, it’s just coincidence when gangs of blacks, whether in prison, in high school, in college, on city streets, in the military (on bases or on ships), in shopping areas, go on violent rampages. They do this allover the world, but especially in politically-correct US or UK.)

  • Nick K.

    It doesn’t matter how egregious the example of black aggression is, no one will ever raise the possibility that there is a racial component to the crimes, either in the targeting if the victims, or in the race of the (usual) perpetrators.

    If Leeds is like almost all American colleges and universities the university security and police are all black and or foreign

    like the criminals.

    Typical behavior of Africans world-wide. Not one country that has Africans avoids their inherent barbarism. Look at what a colossal failure the welfare system is in regards to blacks. They get food, clothing, education, housing, all at the expense of the tax-payer. In the USA our Africans even receive discounts on internet, celphones, etc. And we won’t even include all the other perks to being a ‘minority’ in the West. Despite all this, Africans still feel the need to terrorize and rob the very people who are forced to support them. I’ve never heard of any other civilization in history that had such a dysfunctional system of rewarding and idolizing a class of criminal ingrates. If such behavior had appeared in say, the Roman Empire, the ‘youths’ would find themselves crucified along the Appian Way.

    There’s a race war going on, but only one race is doing the fighting. The other (non-realists, in other words, the majority of whites), shackled by PC, would rather attack their own as “Raaaacist” if they dare to state the plain and obvious truth that blacks are attacking whites all over the civilized world.

    The vilification of whites will only increase as our share of the population declines. I hope this will at least instill a sense of racial cohesion among whites (and hopefully a fighting spirit again.)

    I’m sure “Sir” Trevor Phillips and the Guardian newspaper will be able to justify the “cries for help” committed by these pitiful, pathetic, disadvanaged helpless victims of an uncaring racist society that discriminates against them by keeping them on cradle to grave welfare with living standards far superior to the taxpayers who support them.

    Poor babies, they are just trying to call attention to the bigotry and discrimination against them in the only way they know how.

    The schools failed them. The NH failed them. Social services failed them. Council housing failed them. Recreation programs failed them. Taxpayer funded youth club trips to Europe’s prime vacation spots failed them. Their parole officers failed them. The prison visitation scheme failed them. Job centres failed to provide them with well paid, exciting, interesting work where the could make a difference and layabout all day at high wages.

    How can you expect these poor unfortunate lads to feel self esteem given the vicious racism against them?

    As they lurk about the city evil White people practice rampant discrimination against them by looking fearful when they are around. Evil racist bigoted White women, probably members of fascist groups clutch their purses when they see these innocent lads just skylarking about. Some White girls even reject their animal like sexual advances. In and of itself clear and present evidence of bigotry,prejudice and racism.

    How could these poor pathetic darlings help but lash out against the United kingdom that failed them?

    See your article on the front page of the Guardian tomorrow. Follow up next day with an interview with “Sir” Trevor Phillips about police brutality.

    The first month I was a probation officer back in August 1966 I heard it all. It never changes. England, America, Europe black criminals and their worshiping liberals rule.

    I live in Yorkshire. This story broke a few months ago on local news for reasons you know all too well it never made the national news.

    Of course I knew what the attackers would look like but this is the first time race has been mentioned.

    I know Leeds quite well. Well enough to know there are areas that I am not welcome because of the colour of my skin.

    Any American visiting parts of Leeds and most of Bradford would think they got off in the wrong country.

    White self defence is strongly discouraged. The more frequent & more vicious these attacks become the more whites are told to bury their heads in the sand. We are talking about 250,000 muggings in London alone. As the depression deepens it gets more brazen. The police keep their distance advising potential victims to avoid certain places & not flaunt valuables. The sheeple invite their own slaughter, well it would be racist to refuse.

    The huffington post article did that when it wrote,

    If you’re feelin’ a little glum in ol’ Blighty upon reading of this incident and the many others before it and the many others to come, just keep in mind that Mr Tony Blair (Sir to all of you lot) believes that these people are essential to Britain’s success! Now he wouldn’t give ya a ‘bum steer’ would he?

  • Krystal

    Geez, i wonder if there will be 12 million response video’s condemning this racism? Oh i’m sure the British will come up with some sort of excuse, poverty? racial discrimination? culture? bad up bringing perhaps? I often wonder what it will take for the English to get it through their heads.

    Paul Rim, “White self defence is strongly discouraged.” It’s more than that. It’s illeagal.

    At some point, the English (the real English) have to stand tall and stop allowing themselves to be walked all over and terrorized. Otherwise, it’s all over for England within a few decades.

  • Duran Dahl

    The nation-wreckers are evil, planful creatures. They want a

    physically and psychologically disarmed white populace before the demographics create an absolutely unsurvivable situation for us. They are particularly fearful of a White Revolution and will do their worst to suppress any uprisings…no matter how insignificant. From having observed institutions and neighborhoods, the point-of-no-return occurs when non-whites are about a third of the overall population. At that point, things get “Zimbabwe-bad.” Of course, there is no real reason for whites to be on the run yet. The elites are training Europeans to accept defeat, although we are fully equipped to offer effective resistance. The System no longer responds to the will of the majority. We are on our own now. Keep your powder dry.

    It is easy to be sympathetic to blacks when there are few of them around.

    How long will it be before the English realize that this race is a blight to civilization?

  • Sincerely Concerned

    From #5 Dutchman: “I’ve never heard of any other civilization in history that had such a dysfunctional system of rewarding and idolizing a class of criminal ingrates. If such behavior had appeared in say, the Roman Empire, the ‘youths’ would find themselves crucified along the Appian Way.”

    Me, either. It’s appalling but it all comes from being told for well over 50 years now that Europeans are NOT superior to anyone else in the world, and so all races must live amongst each other to form an understanding and a mutual respect for one another. What a load.

    As for the Roman Empire reference, remember this: it existed when Western Civilization was on the incline. What we are witnessing now is the decline.

    As much as I detest the ridiculous and ethnic names of blacks in English speaking countries, I am now starting to think it’s a good idea to keep up this tradition. That way in the future, when reporting a perpetrator’s race becomes illegal, at least we’ll still have some mechanism to signal their race to the rest of us. That is, of course, until they make reporting names or even the crimes illegal. Just wait.

    Has anyone else noticed that those who promote collectivism, the idea of communal property or who just generally push for the redistribution of genes & wealth never seem to have anything you’d ever want or need in the first place?

    It always seems to more about taking more than giving, if you’re giving away something that wasn’t yours in the first place, then you’re actually just taking it.

    As for the types of gang/mob crimes that young black males commit, what other groups commit these types of crimes on the same regular basis across all continents?

    As a White witness you may end up wearing a whole lexicon of negative labels if you actively profile blacks based on their historical inclination to commit these types of crimes, but you’re only one thing if you choose not to prejudge them, an idiot!!

    And whose fault is it that we have to take care when living around blacks, could it be from the actions and decisions made by the black themselves?

    Yet they’ll use this necessary prejudicing on the part of Whites as an excuse to commit even more (often violent) crimes, the mentality just boggles the mind.

    If you live in close proximity with blacks and you’re White you just have to take extra precautions, it’s only when you live around 0-3%> blacks and you never get to read about the real black crime wave that you can be a generous leftist progressive lemming.

    Just to add, imagine if you could vote in a referendum to have all regions carved up into ethnic zones (granted it would be a nightmare to administer).

    You could have black, brown, yellow, White and mixed zones and it would interesting to see who’d vote for what.

    I’d imagine that the lower IQ groups i.e. the blacks and browns would vote as a majority against separation, as left alone they’d lose out.

    Yellow I’d guess would either like to be mixed with only White or to be left completely alone and Whites would probably at least vote 50% for everyone to stay mixed.

    The Whites who voted for mixed, would not allow the Whites who voted to remain White alone to break away though would they.

    Funnily the if we did separate the Whites who willing went into the mixed zone would no doubt disappear from view with a generation or two.

    Yet they’d call us pro Whites monsters and would bring up memories of apartheid and the Nazis if we willing choose to stay separately White.

    Yet now we all get to live ‘in the mixed zone’ with absolutely no choice what so ever, we’re all disappearing, well except for those of us who choose to practice and hopefully pass on an inter generational positive White self identity.

    Our mixed society needs ‘White racists’ in order to survive, otherwise let us choose to live together and watch our racism disappear.

    Please don’t just semantically pick this hypothetical analogy apart (for instances I don’t know if Indians would be yellow or brown or if Armenians are White etc.) This is just meant to be light.

    There are a lot of blacks with hyphenated surnames in England. Apparently, it’s a fad they’ve taken up because they think it makes them sound classy and urbane.

    Absolutely correct. First I knew about this was reading AMREN today. Typical of our UK media… scared stiff about racism charges.

    The only thing that these primitives understand is force. If British people ( and by that I mean WHITES) start striking back you’ll see a reduction in these attacks. They aren’t going to experience an Epiphany if you return their violence with kindness. They aren’t capable of understanding that a good deed is returned not do they understand the concept of being the initiator of a good deed and that’s exactly why they DON’T, DIDN’T and NEVER WILL belong in anything even remotely resembling a civilized society.

    Consider Eve Carson who wanted to devote her life to helping Blacks both in Africa and in the US, or Amy Biehl who worked to help those whom she considered the struggling Blacks of SA or the woman Marion Hedges who every Christmas season bought toys for less fortunate kids in the Harlem area of NYC. In return for her altruism two or three “YOUTHS” dropped a shopping cart on her from a height of several stories.

    Thank God for the Daily Mail because if it weren’t them we here in the US would have no idea as to what is transpiring every day in our cities.

    How horrible for our British white cousins and they have no rights to self-defense let alone any rights to a weapon. I just know that when the day comes here in the US when our firearms are taken from us, that will be the end for us. Blacks are too numerous, now roughly 60 million in the US, to not believe we are facing an apocalypse with them becoming even more enboldened every day. We feed them a high protein diet of three meals a day, give them free housing, offer up our females and plant the suggestion that they are equal yet downtrodden. We do not have long until there is a complete reversal of our roles and we will be the slaves for them.

    “Unusual?”

    My first thought was that if this were America, such attacks are becoming depressingly usual. I wonder if this is the opening wave of another round of urban guerrilla warfare, so to speak?

    The thing I always look at in these cases is the political angle. Do these black-on-white crimes reflect an attempt to terrorize white people in the UK into submission? Are they competition for space and resources, much as might occur on the savannah?

    Look at the black-on-white crime in the rainbow nation of South Africa. There is a clear political aspect to it, related to anti-white genocide, as noted elsewhere on AmRen. What makes the situation in the UK all the more interesting is that blacks chose to migrate to Britain. They were not part of a conquered population, nor were they enslaved and forcibly imported. Yet they behave in a manner hardly appropriate for guests, would we not say?

    All this is one more reason that race realists ought to be promoting gun rights internationally.

    And then we wonder why more and more White guys are seeking out Asian-American girls. Asians generally have no use for Blacks.

    With these young White women today, one never knows with whom they’ve been.

    I am afraid that no amount of violence or political terrorism against our people will wake them up from the spell that the Frankfurt school minions have placed them under. It is almost hypnotic suggestion that we somehow deserve all that happens to us. In a way that is true. If we are keeping score by Mother Nature’s count. Any people who allow themselves to be manipulated like this deserves what they get. We had better regain our collective wits and put an end to what is happening and we better do it quickly. The great late Dr. Pierce had a few things to say about this. Google his broadcast archive and get a clue.

    This is why Jim Crow laws are needed again. There should be whites only areas along with separate schools etc. Blacks are just different than other people are by nature very aggressive. That will not change and it’s better to accept it.

    Solution: There needs to be ‘off limits” areas where they cannot go. Special laws (Jim Crow kind) need to be implemented to keep them under control. This is not to be mean, but for the safety of the communities.

    Note: Rich people should not be complacent just because they live in expensive areas Blacks cannot afford; it will affect them as well – eventually. You can run but you cannot hide.
