The woman who punched a 70-year-old Walmart greeter in the face after she asked to see a receipt for merchandise she was carrying out of the store has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Jacquetta Simmons, 27, was sentenced Wednesday for the attack that knocked Grace Suozzi to the ground, and fracturing the side of the elderly woman’s face.

In court Simmons said she was sorry for the incident that injured Grace Suozzi on Christmas Eve in 2011, but the judge and prosecutor Larry Friedman say Simmons hardly seems sorry.

‘She absolutely did not accept any responsibility for what she did,’ Mr Friedman said.

The sentence stems from an incident in which Ms Suozzi had asked Simmons to show her a receipt for some electronics purchases she had made at the back of the store, a witness told ABC 13, when the young woman attacked.

Ms Simmons responded with a punch to Ms Suozzi’s face, knocking her to the ground.

Ms Simmons responded with a punch to Ms Suozzi’s face, knocking her to the ground.

Simmons and her male companion then ran out of the store in Batavia, New York after the confrontation but were detained by employees and customers until police arrived, assisted by a large crowd that had surrounded Ms Simmons’ car so she couldn’t drive away.

The incident was captured on security cameras inside the store, and the video was part of the evidence used to convict Ms Simmons.

In court, Suozzi broke down as she told the court how her life has changed since that attack: ‘What she has taken away is irreplaceable, she has taken away my independence…she has taken away my joy and replaced it with trauma.”

Suozzi says she is bruised, afraid, depressed and cannot leave the house. She relied on that Walmart job to pay her bills and is now struggling.

Suozzi said there were times when she thought she would die following the assault. She says she suffers to this day, both physically and emotionally.

The judge called the assault ‘brutal and senseless.’

Simmons attorney says they will appeal the conviction.

    The Daily Mail had this, but you can tell the story is from the United States.

    If this happened in Britain, she would have gotten five minutes in prison, not five years.

    • That would never happen to any black in America. Lion Kings and Lion Queens can do anything they want to do.

  • MekongDelta69

    I’m amazed in this day and age that she got five years.

    I thought ‘shopping and assaulting while black’ only carried a five month max penalty.

    • tickyul

      She will probably be out in 12 months.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        Most states require a violent felony case to serve at least half their sentence before parole eligibility, instead of only 1/3.

        • tickyul

          If there is overcrowding issues some get out with 10% of their sentence served. It really depends on what area they live in… bad the overcrowding is.

      • Pelayo

        I hope that she doesn’t survive for 12 months.

    • Nicholai Hel

      She got lippy with the judge by saying crap like she didn’t remember doing it. Hence more time added.

    • rebelcelt

      I doubt that she will serve the whole five years, but we can always hope . Maybe some fellow amreners can share light on the NY prison sytem and what can be expected.

  • negrolocaust

    wont play

  • Advance to the year 2022. A similar assault occurs.
    Liberals judges dominate the courts.
    Violent black criminals are coddled, not “caged” or incarcerated.

    Such violent acts will go unpunished.
    Precursor? Think Jena 6.

    • The WHITE racists check-out greeter offended the peaceful African-American shopper.

      The good shopper was in Wal-Mart buying Christmas presents for the community. She had purchased the family size bag of Skittles for Christmas diner when this white honky racists red-neck confronted here with rage and hate and DEMANDED from the proud African-American lady for a receipt. DEMANDED as if she was a SLAVE.

      The peaceful African Lady had no choice but to defend herself against the raging white racist. Justice. No Justice No peace.

      • Your crystal ball is amazing. Very accurate.

        • Thank you…..Thank you very much……….(must be said with an Elvis accent)

  • I just noticed the Video has been blocked. By who? The Government?

    Can’t let White people see the real Africans in action?

    • Here’s the YouTube link. About :20 into the video

      • negrolocaust

        Jacquetta…..that pretty much tells the whole story.

        • I bet she has sisters…excuse me… half-sisters Shakwana and Kanneesha and a half-brother Du-Wayne.

    • There are people in Maine, Washington, etc. that will never see this coming.

  • You can see it on YouTube. Just type in the African’s name. The video is not very clear, but you get the idea. Typical Jungle behaviour.

  • MekongDelta69

    The video doesn’t play on here (AmRen), but if you click “Original Article” below the video, it *will* play there:

  • EndTimesComing

    Hooray for all the whites that surrounded the car and kept her from leaving. But what SHOULD have happened was for all those whites to have dragged this woman and her jungle friend out of the car and out of righteous outrage beaten them both to a pulp before the cops could intercede. Only that kind of universal outrage will ever quell the African’s sense that they can do this any time they want.

    • Patience.

    • Pelayo

      I agree. She should have been terminated.

  • Yes, this assault is definitely disturbing—although nothing too surprising when dealing with blacks— and warrants attention, but the fact that “She relied on that Walmart job to pay her bills and is now struggling” is just as disturbing. A 70-year-old shouldn’t have to work at a slave labor corporation just to make ends meet, most especially a 70-year-old woman.

      • Pelagian

        Yes… it is amazing isn’t it? We whites have to get slowly and steadily worked up before we do anything like that.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        And then have complete amnesia when called on their evil deeds:

        Simmons, now 27, said she had no idea she even hit Suozzi until hours later. She said she was horrified to learn she had injured Suozzi and it’s been a painful realization ever since.

        ‘I feel horrible about it,’ Simmons said during her only tearful moment on the stand. “I wasn’t expecting somebody being — how was I supposed to know she was standing right in front of me? I keep thinking ‘how could I have hit this elderly lady and I don’t remember that I hit her?’

        The ONLY thing she feels horrible about is not killing the elderly White.


        • brian

          It’s amazing how often Blacks “Can’t remember” the crime they committed.

          I’m not sure if they just don’t care, or if this might actually be true. That this kind of mindset is so normal to them it’s instinctive, they don’t even notice themselves doing it.

        • rightrightright

          The only thing she feels horrible about is getting caught. “Poor me” horrible is all.

    • mobilebay

      This shouldn’t be surprising. In our family an 85-year old is working part-time since a fixed income doesn’t keep up with rising prices. It happens more often than you know. Sad.

      • Her income tax goes to support this Buffalo.

    • negrolocaust

      if it was not for blacks constantly stealing from every store they would not need people checking receipts first of all because of these “people” everybody has to suffer they contribute nothing.

    • danlieb7

      And Mitt Romney accused the same 47% (which includes women like this 70 year old) of “mooching” the system! Thank the idiotic republicans for making even disabled people like her to toil as a slave labor for big corporations. At least under Obama, social security and affordable Obamacare will help women like her to be truly independent and live the rest of their lives without having to slave for big corps. And to think folks here supported the stupid party-GOP!

      Bobby Jindal ( a really intelligent man) is one of the few really rational conservative among the GOP governors who correctly ostracized Mitt Romney for his foolish campaign which made the GOP see heavy loses. Thank God, Gov. Jindal has just been elected as the Chairman/ President of the all powerful Republican Governors Association (RGA), the most powerful position within the GOP. Under his leadership, the GOP would actually have a viable future! Under idiots like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Laura Ingraham, Sarah Palin, Richard Mur-douche of Indiana, Todd Akin, Sheriff Arpiao ( corruption king!) and Ann Coulter….the conservative movement became a joke!

  • So …. Did she have a receipt?

    • You Are Now Enriched

      The judge called the assault ‘brutal and senseless.’
      Just because the judge can’t make sense of voodoo, doesn’t mean voodoo doesn’t know what it’s doing when it attacks White privilege.

  • The__Bobster

    The sentence stems from an incident in which Ms Suozzi had asked Simmons to show her a receipt for some electronics purchases she had made at the back of the store, a witness told ABC 13, when the young woman attacked.

    “Purchases” indicates that the items were paid for. I doubt it.

  • Here are more news accounts of blacks attacking elderly white people:

  • Michael_C_Scott

    Simmons will have to serve half that before she comes up for parole. I wonder if she thinks punching out an old lady is worth 30 months, plus the loss of her job, car, etc.

    • Assuming she even had a job to lose and wasn’t living off of taxpayer Gibsmedat. Sadly, spending time in prison for punching a defenseless senior citizen over a receipt will only raise her cred among “the people”. Another disgusting difference between blacks and humans- they tend to praise and glorify criminal behavior, while we shun those who cannot follow the civilized rules of everyday society.

    Too bad she didn’t punch THIS guy:

    A Pennsylvania man was arrested yesterday after flashing his breast implants at fellow Walmart shoppers.

    20 years to life sounds about right!! (because he’s White)

        *A mother who says Walmart employees intentionally humiliated her after wrongfully ripping up two of her $100 bills while believing they were fake is taking legal action against the store. In her recently filed complaint, Julia Garcia is seeking $74,900 in damages

        *A Florida man shelled out nearly $500 for an iPad at a Miami Walmart on Monday, as a birthday gift for his mother-in-law.

        But when the woman opened the present on Wednesday, she was shocked to find it was just a plastic fake and not a real electronic device.

  • You Are Now Enriched

    “Suozzi says she is bruised, afraid, depressed and cannot leave the house. She relied on that Walmart job to pay her bills and is now struggling.”

    That’s what you get when a member of the vulnerable and at risk White community encounters authentic Diversity and black privilege.

    All rational thinkers who have examined the Race Problem conclude that the White and black races are incompatible and one will rule the other.

    When voodoo Diversity blacks rule Whites, bloodshed, suffering, and death is guaranteed…

    • I wonder how this elderly White lady voted.

      In her past, did she vote for George Wallace or Nixon? (I think that was the contest at the time. I believe Wallace was running for office about 1968?)

      Does this elderly lady go to a Lutheran Church or Catholic Church which import droves of totally ignorant African “refugees”?

      Does she think Obama is a nice colored boy?

      I wonder. Did she have her awakening? Does she REALLY realize what has happened? Is she a follower here on AMREN. Somebody here should contact here and introduce her to REALITY. A punch in the face is NOTHING compared to what her great grandchildren are going to face.

  • Pelagian

    Were the items in fact stolen?

    • Michael_C_Scott

      It doesn’t matter. The reason Wal Mart greeters ask to see receipts is to cut down on shoplifting. This keeps prices low. I bought a really nice Beeman air rifle at Wal Mart in July 2011. It came with a nice telescopic sight and two barrels: one for .177″ and one for .22″. I have since made a third barrel in .25″ caliber so I can use 1/4″ slingshot pellets or No. 3 buckshot pellets as large BBs. The price at $96 was a steal. And yes, I had to show a receipt.

      As an aside, can everyone imagine the scripted hysterics the meinstream media would have engaged in if the races had been reversed in this incident?

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Good thing it was YOU and not your wife!!!

        Walmart refuses to sell shotgun to woman, says it’s ‘Too much gun’

        “Yesterday at Walmart I tried to buy a shotgun to keep at the house with me when Brad is gone. We live in the heart of downtown New Albany where there is a lot of foot traffic, and we believe that me having a reliable way to protect myself and our baby when Brad isn’t here is just a responsible thing to do.

        “The man behind the counter looked at me in disbelief when I pointed out the beefy Mossberg 930 Tactical weapon that Brad had researched out for me and planned on taking me out shooting to get comfortable with. The man then proceeded to interrogate me about what I wanted it for and how it would be used. He said that I didn’t hold it right and that I needed ‘something else better suited to you.’ He put it back in the case and firmly refused to sell it—all because I am a petite young woman!

        “He threatened me with the FBI and accused me of purchasing the gun for ‘someone else’—namely my husband who was with me.”

        Jerk.. I LOVE my Mossberg…


        • He should be fired.

        • Go back when the same “sales person”is there and buy a whole bunch of 00 Buckshot. Tell him you need 100 rounds for when the riots start.

          Make him squirm. Tell him that as a WHITE WOMAN you need protection from rape and assault by “people from the community”.

        • Michael_C_Scott

          If I had been that woman, I would have gotten the store manager to listen while the moron at the counter repeated his refusal to sell the shotgun, and then I would have insisted on signing a written complaint naming the man.

          For the most part, I am not impressed by the Wal Mart sporting goods section. Their prices on ammo seem high to me, though that may be due to the fact that I have not bought ammo for over 12 years. They stock heavyweight salt-water fishing rods, which is silly here in Colorado, but don’t sell reloading equipment or supplies. They do sell 1/4″ steel slingshot pellets, which I use in the Beeman’s .25″ caliber barrel, but not 5/8″ pellets, which my homemade Belgian bullet crossbow shoots out of its 10mm barrel.

          The only shotgun I ever liked was the Winchester 1897 trench gun. It would not only take a 1917 Enfield bayonet, but had no disconnector, so one can keep the trigger squeezed and fire by working the pump.

      • tickyul

        If they did not have loss-prevention in certain Walmartdelphias……lol, the whole store would be picked clean and not a shilling paid.

    how about the black in brookly that is shooting all the white shop owners to death. i cant imagine running a shop and actually letting a black enter the store. i will never understand people. i guess they just did not value their lives. i would never let a black in my shop if i owned a shop which after careful consideration is why i do not own a shop.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    AND, this black-on-White assault has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with race!! No hate crime will be filed by the DOJ.

    (even though….)

    Simmons last statement before allegedly hitting Suozzi was, ‘I’m not showing the f*cking white bitch the receipt.’


    Samual Hackenberg (an assistant manager) testified that he didn’t arrive on scene until after Suozzi was hit…After ensuring Suozzi was being cared for, he went outside to see what was gong on.

    He testified that once outside, he said he heard Simmons say, ‘do you think I care about these dirty white people?’


    Can’t imagine if the races were reversed — I’m sure the American media wouldn’t report it and we’d have to read about it in the British papers.


    • Texan1st

      If the races were reversed we wouldn’t have had to wait a year to hear about it. It would have been the lead story on every media outlet the next morning and remained there for the next month, followed by daily updates until the white devil was eventually buried beneath the jailhouse.

  • Major

    Just your typical BBA, disgusting excuse for a “woman” of the feral tribes.

    Typical chimpout actions.

    I was once attacked after having a tooth removed and having been awake all night with a toothache. Another time a large Black said something and I looked up to see him looking at me with a predatory gleam. I had just had a hernia operation a few days earlier and was limping up the street to the corner store.
    They are excited by any kind of weakness just like any other predator. It’s very dangerous to be in a weakened condition around them.
    What kind of Society would condemn its elderly to have to live near such people?

    • tickyul

      I was walking down the street minding my own business. An Urban American man suddenly walked up to me and threw a very hard punch at my face…..luckily he pulled it at the last moment.
      I do not hate THEM…..but I dislike and distrust just about all of THEM.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        You have just committed a Hate Crime and are a racist, according to Chris Matthews, by using the word “urban,” which everyone knows equals “oppressed blacks.”

        You, as a White, have no right and are not allowed to use the word “urban” or “Chicago” or “food stamps” (called California Fresh in my home state) because you hurt blacks’ feelings by doing this, which will soon be a federal crime.

        Acts of Hate, such as uttering the word “urban,” WILL be harshly prosecuted as soon as 0bama gets through his Hate Speech Laws, I’d say in another month or so.

        This is no longer America. Hobbs is correct: We owe no allegiance to a government that refuses us the ABSOLUTE RIGHT to protect ourselves and our loved ones from violent, feral blacks who hunt Whites and prey on us at will — while the government and media look the other way.

        Maybe this is why I’m seeing the Bonnie Blue Flag flying in places like California…


        • tickyul

          LOL, your post both gave me a chuckle…while at the same time it made me kinda sad.

          There is no political solution for what ails this once fine country. I just see things going downhill from here on out.

          I do not want to be one of those people who reflexively bleats the “worse is better” meme. But I truly believe that more and more will prepare for the coming nightmare if they see very blatant evidence of how far this country has fallen.

          So yes, this video and others like it are good medicine for the people living in a dream world.

    • Nicholai Hel

      “What kind of Society would condemn its elderly to have to live near such people?”

      A topsy-turvy, upside-down, inside out Orwellian dystopian one. Where black equals white, day equals night, cats chase dogs, foxes guard hen-houses and 2+2=5. A Dickensian one combining the worst elements of draconian communism with robber-baron capitalism; where the nonmenklatura, the one percent own 88% of everything and lumpen prole men-in-the-street “middle class” workers own 1% of nothing. A hell hole.

    • purestocles

      Hobbes said that a society that prevented an individual from protecting themselves from harm had forfeited its claim to sovereignty. You have no obligation to a society that does not protect your right to protect yourself. Such a social organization ceases to exist as an organization.

      These statements do not preach revolution. They go deeper. Many who read and write to this site would agree with Hobbes that our society, which tolerates feral blacks committing acts of violence on whites, has essentially ceased to exist. According to Hobbes, the First Natural Law requires that we preserve ourselves. No government can dictate that we conspire in our own self destruction. When a government does so, it has ceased to be legitimate.

      From these considerations it is plain that our media and civil authorities have lost their moral and legal standing. It is not only in the interests of justice that we ignore them but our Right via Natural Law. Every white person should arm themselves and train themselves in the use of arms. They should be willing to take every measure to protect their person from assault. Not to do so is perceived as weakness by predators and stimulates more attacks.

      The same logic writ large applies to the dissolution of our civil society caused by massive immigration of an alien people bearing their alien culture.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        Nicely said. I read on Amren about 15 years ago that demands that whites “celebrate diversity” really just amount to the expectation that we dance on our own graves.

  • Disgusted

    Five years was too leinent.

  • Athling

    The media must be very careful to conceal as much of this as possible. They know that if we see enough of this we will begin to train the Africans that it is not in their interest to harm a white person.

    • Germanacus

      It also disrupts the narrative of blacks as innocent victims of white oppression. Something similar to Jim Crow is still needed to protect whites from black aggression. I realize their primitive behavior is genetic-based but still…

    Sentences Reversed in Walmart Case

    April 1, 2013

    Jacquetta Simmons, 27, convicted of assaulting 70 year-old Walmart greeter Grace Suozzi, had her sentence overturned by an appeals court today.

    The court found that too many young black women with odd names have been found guilty of felony assault while hardly any White women 70 or over have suffered the same fate.

    Citing “disparate impact” the court ordered Grace Suozzi jailed for 5 years. Walmart has apologized to Ms. Simmons and presented her with $10,000 in Walmart gift cards.

    Unable to afford an attorney and prevented from having a public defender under new regulations limiting “the right to counsel only to people of color” written into the Affordable Care Act, Ms. Suozzi will begin her serving her sentence next week.

    The Simmons family also announced plans a bring a civil suit against the Suozzi estate.

  • Angry White Woman

    There have been several reports in the last year or so of elderly men and women working as Wal*Mart greeters, being assaulted by feral blacks. Seems to be a high risk job. Funny thing though, I can’t seem to find any reports of Wal*Mart greeters having been assaulted by whites during the same time frame or even further back. Wonder why that is? Nobody really likes being asked to show their receipt, with it’s unspoken implication that you might have shoplifter something, but most of us just endure it, considering it the price we all pay for the “vibrant diversity” among us. And really it doesn’t take but a moment or two–nothing to chimpout over. If there is anything to go ballistic over, it’s the fact that the store has to do this to try and stop loss. This is why (among other reasons) I try to buy everything I can elsewhere and avoid Wal*Mart as much as possible.

  • Anonymouse

    There’s a Wal-mart in a not-so-nice part of town that I no longer frequent, due to the prevalent racism I’ve experienced there.

    As a well-coiffed, blue-eyed, lily-white, 50-something, I stand out in a crowd at this place, and nearly EVER TIME I exit that store, I’ve been stopped by an elderly black woman greeter, so that my bags can be thoroughly searched.

    Meanwhile, all the ruffians and miscreants slip on out the door, because she’s digging through MY bags, checking to make sure that I paid for that $3 tube of toothpaste.

    Yes, it’s very annoying and embarrassing and at times, downright maddening, but never in a million years would I give a thought to slugging the greeter. Instead, I now drive 20 miles out of my way to patronize another store in a better part of town.

    When did it become open season on old white people? I find this story incredibly disturbing.

    • Jonetwo

      This is all because the baby boomer generation supported their own replacement by other people not like them.

      Blacks, Hispanics, whomever…they don’t want to share with you…they want to replace you. They want what you have and they are willing to get rid of you.

      White people have foolishly and willingly given their power away. The “others” have the power now, they are going to keep it, and they are going to make whites “pay”. It’s not revenge in their minds; it’s a reckoning.

      The baby boomer generation was the worst thing that ever happened to this country. We went from the greatest generation to the weakest, limp-wrist wimps in two generations.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      I get this at my local Target. The very young, non-White, uniformed, ever-changing security/guard-greeter often stops ME to rifle through my belongings as I’m leaving and holds me up by checking my recipet (not that they can add or subtract, it’s simply the act of hassling and harassing a White person because they can).

      This–While hoards of blacks and brown with massive-sized bags freely exit the store.

      Problem is– there are NO Targets left in So California that I know of that AREN’T 95% black or brown. There are certainly few to no White employees; I’ve never seen a White greeter.

      I imagine there will come a time when they’ll be allowed to bodily search us like they do at the airports.


  • Eurobeing

    Ditto Ditto and double Ditto End Times Coming you certainly called that right.

  • My thoughts go to this Lady first, of course : I wish her a speedy recovery.

    That being said, there are some causes for satisfaction here.

    First, the sentence handed by the Court is by no mean light : it even seems rather fair, especially in this age of absolute impunity.

    Second, and more importantly : the instinctive, massive reaction of the (largely white) crowd is commendable : instant assistance to the wounded, and mass-pursuit of the offender. I can almost imagine some kind of vague racial solidarity flowing through these people’s brains as they witness this senseless attack and instantly decide to act.

    I dare hope this is a sign of things to come.

    I hate the so-called “green” no-bag policy that some grocery stores have now. While I do tend to walk, and carry stuff in a backpack, I still want bags to prove that I paid. As it is, I keep reciepts until I get home. I am VERY paranoid about being accused of stealing! And could understand if I’m stopped by a floorwalker for a receipt.

    Oh, and I have lots of uses for plastic bags once I get them home. Paper bags, not so much. Empty bread bags, for instance, are great for used cat litter (and dog waste, but I don’t have a dog at the moment.) Standard grocery bags are awesome as kitchen-catchers that are easy to carry down to the Dumpster. The only use I really have for bought Hefty bags are for bringing pop cans in for the deposit return. I don’t think the anti-plastic bag thing is “green” so much as it is businesses being offended that I’m getting something useful for free.
