The Young and the Reckless Are Wreaking Havoc on Philly’s Streets

Morgan Zalot, Philly, February 9, 2012

A spate of seemingly random and violent attacks by juveniles—including savage beatings of senior citizens and an unprovoked attack on a college student in a Center City cab—has again forced Philadelphia to look in the mirror and ask why our kids are filled with such rage.

Vietnam veteran Edward Schaefer, 64, was walking last month along 5th Street in Olney, a few blocks from his home, when a group of young thugs jumped him, pummeling him hard enough to fracture his face.

“There’s information we got from a friend of those kids that [showed] the whole thing was planned. They were going to ‘go f—- somebody up,’ “ a police supervisor with knowledge of the case told the Daily News. “It’s a sad thing these a—holes picked on an elderly war veteran.”

Two suspects in the case were sentenced to the maximum of four years in a juvenile detention facility yesterday.

Laurence Steinberg, a Temple University professor who studies adolescent behavior, attributed the attacks to the teens’ upbringing—or lack thereof.

“Individuals who behave that way typically have been very poorly raised,” he said. “Most individuals learn through the course of being socialized by their parents to control their aggressive impulses and to not hurt individuals.”

Experts agree that, more often than not, violent juveniles have not only grown up surrounded by violence, but also tend to have a distinct feeling of hopelessness about the future.

Brian Goldman, 21, was in a cab stopped at a red light at a crowded Center City intersection on Jan. 28 when a group of up to 10 teens stormed the car and punched him through the window.

“At that point, I couldn’t fight back, nor did I want to,” he told the Daily News last month. “I was convinced these kids had a knife on them, or some weapon, so I jogged up the block.”

Goldman left the scene, and the 53-year-old cab driver managed to scare the teens away with a tire iron.

Damian Jackson, 17, an Overbrook High senior, said that some teens “do this for fun, just randomly pick and attack people.”

“It’s pointless,” said Jackson, who plans to study engineering in college. “They’re making it worse for us teenagers who are being normal.”

After another summer marked by random teen-mob violence, [Philadelphia’s deputy mayor for public safety Everett] Gillison said that the city tried to pressure the good kids to stand up to the bad ones by putting the message out through Facebook, the city’s youth commission and places teens congregate.

    These are not “our kids.” The author errs by indicating sympathy for these “kids,” and by not mentioning their race, and the race of their victims.

  • Anonymous

    Not even a mention that all the attackers are blacks in packs and all the victims are lone whites.

  • Can’t say “black,” that would be racial bigotry.  But we can engage in the “ageism” of citing their age or age range.

    • Excellent point.

      Of course the media mentioned race when it reported the James Byrd attack.

    • Wait a minute. I thought AG Holder said we were “cowards” for not being willing to discuss issues of race. Which is it? (“Heads I win, tails you lose”)

      • In relatively short order, the only description of a crime and/or criminal suspect that political correctness will allow is: 

        At some time on some day, one or more people behaved in some fashion
        toward another person or group of people.  If you have any information
        about this incident, please call your city’s department of welfare
        health care and self-esteem at (insert phone number).

        To include anything else would be to stereotype black men.

  • “Individuals who behave that way typically have been very poorly raised,” he said. “Most individuals learn through the course of being socialized by their parents to control their aggressive impulses and to not hurt individuals.”

    In other words, we are dealing with something akin to feral animals here….

  • Shocking?

    This nonsense has been going on forever.

    Recall that Abe Lincoln was attacked by a gang of black thugs when he was 19.

    • and remember please, it was lincoln who turned loose the blacks and he turned ’em loose on us.

        The South was right?

        Wasn’t it Southerners who imported blacks here in the first place?

        How was that right?

        Profitable for a few maybe, but mostly damn stupid.

          African blacks constituted imported cheap labor to do jobs that lazy Southern plantation owners wouldn’t do — or at least pay for.  Think of  antebellum plantations as the Wal-Marts of their time.  Cheap labor, then as now, carries a high price for everyone but the employer. 

        • Anonymous

          Southerners may well have imported blacks as slaves before the US Civil War, but southerners did not import blacks “in the first place”.

          That was my lot, the British. When America was a British colony, Britain was transporting blacks as slaves to the New World for well over 100 years before US independence.

            There was a bustling in the slave trade in the North as well . . .

            It’s a fair point to be careful about who you’re pointing the finger at when assigning historical blame. Especially when it comes to as big of a mistake as importing blacks into the Americas.

            Whoever they were – they were idiots who cursed us with Africans. British colonialists who started the trade, the US Southerners who continued it, plus some US Northerners as well. The whole lot of them. Cursed us.

        If Southern whites had grown their own crops there never would have been slavery, there never would have been a slave trade, the black population in the United States would be no more than one percent. 
          
        Slavery is America’s original sin caused by the laziness of Southern whites. 

  • aggressive impulses – WOW!  This says it all right here now.  This “professor” says this as though we ALL have natural “aggressive impulses”.  I am TRULY OFFENDED.  I was not taught to “control aggressive impulses” because I don’t have “aggressive impulses”.  This is sick and highly insulting.

    I do agree however, about the raising.  White Traitors tricked them and that saddens me.  They were happier and healthier under White Rule but no one will admit that.  Black Folk need and even deserve help but that can only be achieved by first, admitting The Truth.  They need to be directed and there’s no shame in this.  Lots of People need help and direction and that’s okay.

    I hope people have been down-loading and forwarding our flyer “Racism Cuts Both Ways” – featuring some of these racial attacks on Whites in Philadelphia. 

    I’ll attach it again – the photos make a strong case for our point of view.

    • Great, putting up flyers gets the message out and hopefully gets people into race realism. And if it doesn’t, and all it does is piss a deluded liberal or non-White off, then it is still fun and fine to do!

      • Anonymous

        Agreed. Thanks Hunter. Have some fun out there – ticking off deluded liberals is always fun. I think regular, decent Black folks won’t be offended.

  • Young male/young man, teen, youth and teen youth. Huh. Do they really have to spell it out for us? It starts with “N” and it ends with me getting expelled from college.

    The “6 letter word.” Would a failed race by any other name smell so foul? I’ll let you decide, buttheanswerisyes.

  • At least the newspapers and news broadcasts have given us a fine drinking game.

    Drink every time they say something that isn’t “Black” or “African-American.”
    Finish a drink if the article finishes without saying something that would clearly indicate that the race of the villains is black.

  • I just love how all the idiots who run our society put blinders on and pretend like they don’t know the root cause of all this violence…

    Blacks are Racists…  And nobody ever calls them on their racism… ever.  The official government policy is set in concrete that blacks cannot be racist.  Even when nine black teenagers are beating a 70 year old white guy while shouting, “Die whitey die!!!” the friggin’ rocket scientist  who run this sad jalopy of a civilization will instinctually run to white racism being the root cause all all bad behavior from blacks.

    There is simply no discussing this issue with over half the population of this country.  That half is just too plain stupid and brainwashed and hateful towards whites (and that includes self-hating whites) to ever be reasoned with.   It’s just time to stock up on survival goods and wait for any group with a sound vision to start seeing that there is no point it talking about this stuff anymore.  Talking will not solve it.

      “wait for any group” NO! Time to start up regional AmRen groups. I’ve called for this before three or four times and gotten zero response. Time to put up or shut up AmRenners. I’m in the DC area. Who wants to meet up?

    The City of Brotherly Love has become the City of Bloody Love.

    The following comes from a British newspaper, The Daily Mail:

    Jan, 18, 2012:

    A man was fatally beaten near the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia when a group of men attacked him, mistakenly thinking that he was yelling at them instead of a cab driver who passed him by.

    Kevin Kless, 23, recently graduated from college and had left a bar with his girlfriend early Saturday morning when the incident occurred.

    Like the American papers, no mention of the race of the murderous animals that did this.  

    MSM General Rule:  If the victim is a non-White and the perp is White, expect to see and hear about it on the national news 24/7 for weeks.  Race will be mentioned in the first paragraph and a photo of the perp will be prominently displayed, the race and photos of the victims too.  

    Zillions of follow up reports will “explore”  how racism continues to plague the US.  If the victim is White, it may or may not be reported locally, race of thugs never mentioned.

    Bon

    Image #1:  Beaten to death:  Kevin Kless, 23, was declared dead in a Philadelphia hospital hours after being attacked near the historic Liberty Bell.

    Image #2:  In the FBI stats, these murderers will be listed as “White” offenders.  If they were victims, they would be listed as “Hispanic victims of a racial hate crime.”

      “White offenders” – somebody needs an eye test.

      To me they look Mulatto [USA] or Coloured [RSA] or Mixed Race [UK]

    A spate of seemingly random and violent attacks by juveniles.

    Hold it right there!  These attacks are NOT random, these are Holder’s people doing what Holder has told them to do.

    more often than not, violent juveniles have not only grown up surrounded by violence, but also tend to have a distinct feeling of hopelessness about the future.

    This is just as small taste of what is to come.  Entitlement payments, which have kept a lid on black violence, are falling in value due to the expansion of the money supply.  In real value, they’re almost half of what they were when 0bama started.  

    We have the most racist, White-hating president and AG in history and unless the current regime is ousted in November there will be more murders in the streets with bodies piling up like Mexico.

    When the flow of money to the parasitic class becomes even more sparse, we can count on more violence against Whites.  Makes one think this was planned by the hostile elites in charge of the government, media and schools – – the very ones who have been telling blacks and Hispanics for decades that Whites are responsible for their poverty and misery. 

    Blood will flow in the streets before this is over.

      All good points, Bon, however I’m not sure the leftists planned it that way. It’s my opinion that some of them don’t care what kind of monster they unleash on us, so long as the can benefit from taxes, profit or power; others are so liberal and dense they reside somewhere in LaLa land where the fairies dwell. They have created a reality that exists only in their own minds and it has no semblance to the real world.

      “Blood will flow in the streets before this is over.”

      No truer words were ever spoken or written.

    From the article:  “A spate of seemingly random and violent attacks by juveniles….has again forced Philadelphia to look in the mirror and ask why our kids are filled with such rage.”Sorry, they are not my kids. They are not Philadelphia’s kids either. And we are NOT looking in the mirror this time.  We are looking directly at the PARENTS and the GOVERNMENT who continually allow this to happen.

    So much of this violence is due to the fact that these “youths” have “a distinct feeling of hopelessness about the future”???

    It would be difficult to come up with a more perfectly distilled expression of the liberal view of the causes of crime…

    • Since when did blacks care that much about the future?  That’s part of their problem, they’re so unable to grok the abstraction of the continuum of time that they louse their future for present gratification.

  • Anonymous

    Given the amount of violence last year, there will probably be an prosecutable black-on-white hate crime this year. Possibly a murder.

    The pro-white community (or whatever it is) might want to be ready for this possibility, and prepared to raise a HUGE stink when it happens.

    It occurred to me the other day that it’s sites like Amren which are actually leading on the issue of interracial crime, and especially on flash mob violence. Not the SPLC, not the Fed. Attorney General, not the media. Nothing is being done, no one is talking about the racial undercurrent to the violence, except to claim that there isn’t any. Only us evil racists seem to care.

    When this hate crime occurs, as it most likely will – Mr. and Ms. Average White America are going to find that the only people that have been consistently talking about black-on-white violence are the heretical White Nationalists.

    Won’t that be an interesting moment?

    • It seems we finally do have a movement in the works. Maybe it’s just starting to gel, or maybe I’m just discovering it, but along with this site, SBPDL, and the like, there is an “alt-right,” “alternative right” or “new right” movement growing in the U.S. The look of some of the sites, as well as the quality of writing and moderating, shows that the movement is growing up — and probably maturing at just the right time (when we look at what may happen this November.) 

  • From the article “Experts agree that, more often than not, violent juveniles have not only grown up surrounded by violence, but also tend to have a distinct feeling of hopelessness about the future.” It is true that inner city black youth grow up in a culture of violence, but the “hopelessness about the future” is pure crap. As a retired parole officer, I can tell you without hesitation, these young criminals give very little thought about the future. Their focus is all about today and how and where will I get pleasure and excitment. Doing jail time is not a deterrent. If anything, doing time in jail is a badge of honor in these communities. The cultural marxists in our public school systems and the popular culture have taught these young blacks to view whites, America and Western Civilization with contempt and hold them responsible for everything that is wrong in the world. It’s going to get worse, much worse, before it gets better.

      Yes, Nick has got all the goods on this kid and on much more, if anyone is interested in further info they should definitely visit his site.
      Nick also sometimes contributes stories to Amren and more often over at Vdare.

  • Filled with rage!!??  It’s called ‘spoiled’ and it is brought upon special rights.  Blacks across America have dumped morality thanks to their Marxist leaders who told them year after year, that they are not responsible for their own actions.

    I, too, am feeling hopeless about the future — hopeless, that is, that anyone in Philadelphia can step forward and identify the main problem as black crime.

      Don’t be hopeless. Do something. One person can make a difference. Change doesn’t happen over night, but it is happening. Whether you make a small effort, or recruit millions of people, everything helps. Watch the biography of Martin Luther (NOT MARTIN LUTHER KING) for inspiration. In the 15 th century, the Roman Catholic Church had a strangehold on Europe. They were a horribly corrupt institution that controlled every aspect of life in Europe. Martin Luther, a lowly monk, stood up against the church and ended their reign of terror in Europe. He did it by writing books and spreading awareness. At that time, there was no modern way of spreading the word. Most people could not read nor afford books. He still spread the word and brought the church down. Luther was persued by the law and almost executed at one point. Sympathetic political leaders and public outrage prevailed. The side of truth and decency won. The side of pedophilia and serfdom lost. We will win as well. The story of Martin Luther reminds me of Jared Taylor’s history. Don’t give up and keep fighting.

      The key to your hopelessness is to do positive work/action. Here’s a suggestion. Use your computer to find the names and contact information of all (White) Pennsylvania state representatives. Then contact as many as you can and write, ask them why the double standard on hate crime prosecutions for openly racial attacks. You can use this flyer we made siting the Philadelphia attack on the White Vietnam Vet (attached). Once you get going and stand up for the legitimate rights of our people, you will not feel hopeless. You are not alone and we will win.

    Here is a link to the contact page for the Pennsylvania House of Representatives:

    http://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/legis/home/member_information/email_list.cfm?body=H

    Please take the time to make some individual (not spamming) e-mails and maybe some phone calls to discuss the recent spate of violent racial attacks on Whites in Philadelphia. Keep the e-mails short and to the point, introduce yourself (generally who you are, what you do) and then get right to the point. You’re very concerned about the large number of violent attacks in Philadelphia and the double standard on hate crime prosecutions in the state of Pennsylvania. Please attach one of our flyers and get the truth out.

    With blacks, there have NEVER been one-on-one “fair” fights.  Blacks have ALWAYS attacked in packs . . . must be in their DNA . . .

  • Hirene

    This has been going on for decades.  The black on white murders are in the dozens.  I remember one particularly heinous crime:  mother shot dead in front of her toddler by black robbers.

  • I blame the white-libs more than anyone else. Sorry, but they are what’s really hurting us more than anybody else. Sad but true. If you don’t think our number one problem is our own kind, just look at how many whites you see at basketball games and rap concerts.  I think that says it all. Think about our percentage of the population as opposed to blacks (13%) and know that we have a black (and mindless) president only because of us (of course I don’t mean “us” on here). Even the Mexicans voted for Cliton over him. Nothing will change for us until our people wake up. So sad….

    I remember seeing this on the news. There was some black girl who attended the Iny League University of Upnen and said this in regards to the curfews put in place afterwards. “I am afraid these curfews will be disc-minatory in the sense that they will only be enforced in black neighborhoods”/ I wish I could have been there to “debate” her. Who are the ppl doing these things? There certainly not white, or asian. They are going into the “white areas” and causing havoc. The real question to ask would be “why would the curfews be enforced anywhere BUT black neighborhoods”.
