Man, 78, Recounts Assault by 6 Youths in E. Toledo

Taylor Dungjen, Toledo Blade, April 3, 2012

It was six against one.

Six juveniles—the youngest 11, and the oldest 17—nearly boxed in Dallas Watts, a 78-year-old man from East Toledo.

Mr. Watts was on his way home from the nearby Gas Express Mart at Starr Avenue and White Street about 4:45 p.m. Saturday when the boys approached him.

One pointed at Mr. Watts and said, “take him down,” the victim recounted in an interview Monday.

Mr. Watts, carrying home two small bags of pork rinds to dole out as treats to his three dachshunds, looked at the youth and said, “Why you picking on me?” Mr. Watts recalled. “Remember Trayvon. Why you picking on me?”

The boy, again, allegedly told his friends to “take him down.”


Mr. Watts said one of the boys delivered a single blow to the back of his head during the incident Saturday, knocking the victim to the ground.

At one point, the victim recalled being lifted from the ground so one of the boys could “drop-kick” him in the chest.

One boy, he said, put his foot on the back of the victim’s neck, with another shouting, “Kill him.”

While Mr. Watts was down the boys kicked him, over and over, shouting, “[Get] that white [man]. This is for Trayvon . . . Trayvon lives, white [man]. Kill that white [man],” according to a police report.

The boys fled when a man shouted at them, according to the report.

Mr. Watts said it’s possible the assault was retribution for the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, who was fatally shot by George Zimmerman, a Neighborhood Watch captain in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26. {snip}


When asked about the Trayvon remarks, Mr. Watts said, “All I meant by saying ‘remember Trayvon’ is to remember what happened to him, don’t duplicate it here,” suggesting that he was minding his own business as he walked home.

“The only reason I mentioned Trayvon, that was my defense,” Mr. Watts said. “Don’t pick on me. I am not your enemy.”

The assault occurred only a few hours after a peaceful rally, near the Thurgood Marshall Building, 420 E. Manhattan Blvd., to show support for the Martin family.


During the Vietnam War, Mr. Watts, who served in the military from 1950 to 1961, refused to let his boys play GI Joes.

There would be no more killing, he said.

But now, Mr. Watts says he plans to buy a gun and obtain a permit to carry it.

“What happened to me … down here on the corner, that changed my perspective on humanity,” Mr. Watts said.

    “What happened to me … down here on the corner, that changed my perspective on humanity.”? 
    Humanity? Mr. Watts, you were attacked by congoloids.

  • xxxtonygunsxxx

     below is the website for the states attorney prosecuting mr. zimmerman, i
    urge all amreners to email or write ms. corey a respectful letter detailing how
    as a voter and citizen you feel that mr zimmerman defended himself under the law
    and how you feel that the police acted professionally on scene and did a good
    initial investigation and that charges against mr. zimmerman would not be right
    considering he was being assaulted and was forced to defend himself after yelling for help with no response. thank you. (on left is contact, that link takes you directly to a sign on right to email, very easy took me 2 minutes)

  • Trayvon wasnt minding his own business they truth needs to get out. He was caseing houses in a gated community he didnt live in, and only there due to getting caught with drugs at school

  • xxxtonygunsxxx

    mr watts needs to document   his medical bills and the police report to submit with his ccw application as further proof he needs to carry. dont waste time if you are reading this mr watts get statements from witnesses, police etc.  bring all the proof you can in writing to give to state police thats how the process works and do it now.

    • Impertinent

      He doesn’t need to do any of that in Florida. If he has no felonies on his record….he attends a class at a local gun shop….fills out the paperwork, pays the fee and in 4 weeks he gets his permit.

      Florida is…”A shall Issue State”.

  • redshirts

    Is anyone keeping count of the number of State Attorney Generals who aren’t suing Eric Holder’s My People DOJ for failing to press hate crime charges against the Diversity Sons of Obama when the victim is White?

  • redshirts

    Those Diversity Sons of Obama were just unburdening him from some of his racist White privilege.  We see a beating, but they were performing a sacrament of social justice.

  • No

    If there is a Hell, I can only hope there’s a portion, deep, deep down beneath it to hold these feral savages.  Make them sit in a Bar-B-Q and read books while listening to country music.  Torture them for eternity.  They deserve nothing less in the next world.

    As far as THIS world is concerned . . . I better hold my tongue.

    I noticed this in the article:   “The assault occurred only a few hours after a peaceful rally, near the Thurgood Marshall Building, 420 E. Manhattan Blvd., to show support for the Martin family.”

    There was a question the other day about why whites aren’t showing up to the Skittle Boy rallies.

    Here’s why.

  • Sorry about what happened to you, Mr. Watts — I really am. These savages should be horse-whipped, including the 11-year-old. But at least your injuries weren’t too serious, and you’ve learned that in some parts of this world, you’d better have a gun, if you want to survive. All you would have had to do is fire a shot or two over their heads, and they’d have vanished like snow in July.

     Everyone should keep this in mind: Blacks, taken as a race, tend to be cowards. They’ll hit you with a sucker punch, or from behind, or they’ll try to catch you at an awkward moment when they can humiliate you without you being able to do much about it. And they’re always big and tough when they’ve got plenty of numbers on their side — but not if they have to face you, one on one.

    When I was that age, I had a great dog like that. I really miss him.

  • The_Bobster

    And the libtarded media aren’t going out of their way to make them less ignorant. He’s a White Hispanic to them.

    • Anon12

      True, Bobster.  But neither is George Zimmerman if you think about it…… we know why that is…

  • redshirts

    New claims cast Trayvon Martin as the aggressor

    • gemjunior

      Strange, but the “page could not be found”… how odd.

  • Well I guess the old man doesn’t look like Obama’s son, but I bet the perps do.

  • mikejones91

    Just imagine if he did carry and shot them in self-defense. My god. Detroit would ACTUALLY burn. 

    • Impertinent

      And finally…we could just bury Detroit. It’s long been dead from the disease of liberal black…”good intentions”.

    • Ingsoc

      Burning what’s left of Detroit would be an improvement.

    “The only reason I mentioned Trayvon, that was my defense,” Mr. Watts said. “Don’t pick on me. I am not your enemy.”
    “Mr. Watts says he plans to buy a gun and obtain a permit to carry it.”

    Look Old man…..all due respect but you don’t look like you could pick up your walker to defend yourself…which is why the feral animals decided to stomp you. I have a suggestion…get your permit…get your gun….go back to where you got mugged and say the same phrases…make them all little Trayvons. So Long as the Stand your ground law exists….use it…before the wimp of a governor and his testosterone lacking AG, Pam Bondi…decide to kill the law. Before we all become targets of the “Snivel Rights” crowd and the IQ challenged followers of Fat Al get more steamed up.

  • Impertinent

    “In Florida, the state paperwork delay can run up to 4 months.”

    Nonsense. Usually 4 to 6 weeks….even renewals only take 2 weeks and the State even gives a graced period of up to a couple months if your permit expires….to get it reissued.

    I’ve had mine for 25 years. And in Florida you can get your gun in a couple days…carry it legally in your car or in your home…without a permit.

  • Impertinent

    We love dogs that have allergies to feral black creatures.

  • 6 on 1 against an 80 year old. More of that black alpha male behavior the Electric Naughty Word (you know who I mean) tells me is so great.

      Stix (and DID scoop the world on Zimmerman’s “anti-racism”!
      By Peter Brimelow on April 4, 2012 at 2:20pm

      The Daily Caller has now confirmed what Nicholas Stix reported a couple of days ago: a relative of George Zimmerman has claimed that Zimmerman was involved in a recent “anti-racism” campaign demanding that the son of a police officer be arrested for beating a homeless black man, Sherman Ware. DC’s Matthew Boyle has details that appear to me to reflect well on the Sanford police: In 2010 race-related beating case, George Zimmerman pushed to discipline same officers who investigated Trayvon Martin shooting, April 2, 2012.

      On Stix’s original post, I wrote: “If the story proves out, Nicholas Stix has scooped the world.” I was cautious, just as we were (fortunately) too cautious to post the fake pictures of Trayvon Martin that recently burned Michael Brendan Dougherty. But Stix interviewed the relative and went with his judgement. I congratulate him: he did indeed scoop the world.

      Now let’s see how far the story goes in the MSM.

  • Impertinent

    The only white men I ever hear advocating for our rights are David Duke and Jared Taylor. The rest are sissified girly men ( running for the office of the POTUS ) who would never dare…call a spade a spade.

    • Anon12

      I could also name almost every CI preacher out there also who advocate for our rights on a daily basis, but of course, not too many even want to listen to them and especially our government, our mainstream”churches” (they would lose their flockand their $$$$) and our anti-White sick media. 

  • Impertinent

    I love dogs that aren’t politically correct. A dog that through generations of intuitive breeding….knows a threat when he smells one.

    • Anon12

      I have read before that dogs AND cats have an aversion to blacks for the most part.  Maybe those that don’t have been pc indoctrinated….or their “smellers” altered. 

  • Impertinent

    And while in prison…he’ll get better medical care than he can with Medicare or Medicaid! Plus never have to worry about food stamps, the AARP or starving.

  • I had a similar experience, except my boyhood dog was a Siberian Husky. 

  • JackKrak

    Typical black M.O. straight from the hunting grounds of Africa – choose the weakling and attack in packs.

  • rebelcelt

    Mr. Watts seems to work on low voltage. If by 78 he has not wisened up i fear he is totally incapable of wising up. Mr. Watts, these people hate you and are using the latest unfounded gripe to use as their excuse,for assaulting you.Even at 15 I knew not to rationalize with the unrational.

  • No


    I don’t know how to make you (and others like you) understand. 

    I’m going to try to over-simplify the explanation.  Not because I question your intelligence but because simple building blocks are easier to communicate by the written word.

    Our country (like all European countries) is built on a Structure of political power defined by laws.

    There is an amorphous Party controlling that Structure.  The Party is composed of Obama and his henchmen, leftists, liberals, progressives, race hustlers and most Democrats. 

    There is a Machine serving the Party.  The Machine is composed of the media, Hollywood, effete college professors, editors and intellectuals.  

    The Machine has a radar.  When that radar picks up any truth being spoken by whites it immediately processes it and re-interprets it as RACISM.  

    RACISM is one of the primary fuels providing energy to the Party.  There are other fuels but this is the primary one.


    Every condemnation by white leaders makes the Party stronger.  Every time whites organize and demonstrate at a nationally prominent event (like Jena, for example), it makes the Party stronger.  Every article we write, every forum like this one . . . makes the Party stronger.


    All politics are local.  The machine can’t see, read, or hear EVERYTHING.  Like all resistance movements, ours must fly under the radar. 

    How?  By organizing locally.  By meeting others who think like we do, face to face.  By educating those who have questions.  By becoming a force at the LOCAL level – the city council, the mayor’s office, the school board, the police and fire department, etc. 

    It can be as easy as forming a group of like-minded whites to prepare for food shortages or the coming economic breakdown.  It can be a bowling team or a shooting club.  or just a bunch of guys who meet at the local gym and work on their squats and deadlifts.

    Remember the fundamental Law Of Nature.  All living things begin as a single cell.  The cell multiplies and the new mass of cells specializes . . . and from that, a body is formed.

    • anarchyst

      Look at WHO runs hollywood, the “mainstream” media, our “cultural” institutions etc.  You will have your answer.  You may not like what you find.
      All these things are “controlled” by one small minority that possesses inordinate power.  This has been going on throughout history . . .
      The BOYCOTT is still an effective method to “take away” that power.  Let’s use it. 

  • La Santa Hermandad

    Every attack on Whites from here on is on Sharpton, Jackson, the POTUS, the media and all the pathetic self loathing Whites.
    It’s time to stop typing and talking.  Silence is the way to strike fear in the heart of the enemy and the response must be sudden and fearsome.

  • Jesus Christ, how can you live your life in a vacuum ? Some types
    of behavior are close to mental illness.

    And I don’t mean Blacks, they are what they are.

  • MartelC

    The  marxist media is directly responsible for this. I wish we could take every ‘white privilege’ reporter and editor and make them live in the ‘hood’ without escort. 

  • Impertinent

    Thanks for the great suggestion AWW…but I think I’ll stick with a dog that makes Tyrone stain his dropped down undies! A dog that looks like he’s mean is / can be mean. But with most Bantus….it’s a Rottweiler or that most beautiful and fearsome looking…a Dobie!

    A dog that strains at the leash when he sees a hoodie…which I’ll train him to react to and tear to pieces if let loose on one. I’ll be happy just to see their eyes pop out of their sockets….Amos & Andy and Rochester style.

    These dogs are muck like a good pistol. Take out a KepTec or a “baby” pocket gun….you might get laughed at. Take out an XD9 or a 44…you get respect…instantly.

    • Ingsoc

      Most American dogs are racist and none have had their natural instinct for a distrust of strangers brainwashed out of them.  We could learn a lot from them.

      Anyone my German Shepard growls at I take as an immediate threat.  With blacks, I can hardly restrain her as she tries to break free and go after them.  She’ll bark and snarl for an hour afterwards.  Blacks are terrified of dogs, especially German Shepards because it remind them of K-9s the police use.

      • Impertinent

        German shepherds and Germans generally….had the right idea. AH should have never wasted his time trying to conquer Europe.If he stuck to Africa and got the resources he needed…..we wouldn’t have the problem of Africans today.

        Not saying that he wasn’t a screwed up guy…..he needed to stop at the Russian border….and take care of Rommel.

      •  Impertinent:

        If that’s the AH I think you’re thinking of, I don’t think he had African territorial ambitions outside of North Africa.  And even if he did, it wouldn’t have done us much good because we had plenty of our own for a few centuries by the time AH came to power.

  • Look at the dumb Mick cop at 1:34 here: 

    “Unconfirmed”??   You cannot trust a 77-year-old white man on death’s door?  What is he going to do, ask the perps for confirmation?
