More Than 200 Involved in Benton Harbor High School Brawl

Denise Bohn, WSBT-TV, January 14, 2013

Police say they’ve had enough of fights in and outside Benton Harbor High School.  There were several fights again in school Monday. A 14-year-old student was arrested for bringing a knife in and making threats.

This comes just days after police say they dealt with the largest brawl they’d ever seen. More than 200 kids were involved.

    I clicked on the story because the name Benton Harbor reminded me of the kind of place Frank and Joe Hardy would hang out with their stout good natured companion Chet, a lifetime ago…But the video put paid to that memory.

      I’m pretty sure a teacher in a neighboring town made the national news a while back for daring to mention that many people thought of the area as “sordid”.

        I remember that!! Thanks…I`ll look it back up

    The last time I drove through Benton Harbor, I saw no evidence of white people anywhere. The downtown was 100% boarded and closed. The traffic lights had been turned off and stop signs planted at the intersections. This was 20 or more years ago.

    I am a bit surprised to see white newscasters and police. I know there are whites still in St Joseph and along the waterfront of Lk Michigan, but the police chief at least appeared to be in Benton Harbor.

    Another west Michigan town much like Benton Harbor is Muskegon. I never found out how these rural outposts of Africans came to be..

      I always wonder too how these towns that were white 20-30 years ago suddenly become all black or latino

        Section 8 housing. Bantus can drive from their ghettos to a nice area and ruin it really quickly. Businesses need to do the stuff that bantus don’t like. Restaurants must play classical music, remove TV sets, and never, I repeat — never sell high end brandy. They also must not put fried chicken on the menu. Other retail stores should play Muzak and have armed White employees. Abba can be played on outdoor speakers in the street. Abba is an excellent bantu repellant.

          In the old days of the 60s and 70s, bars and night clubs would have a “no hat” rule at the door, in order to discourage blacks from entrance.

  • “The fighting just has to stop.”

    Let the conversion of Benton Harbor High School into Benton Harbor Junior Correctional Facility begin. This is why there aren’t many school shootings in black high schools, because so many of them have essentially been converted into de facto small prisons.

    • dhs

      That’s a great idea. Also change the name to Muhumad Ali Institute for Intercontinental Financial Studies.

  • Pelagian

    “Police arrested a FOURTEEN year old” [mock news anchor surprise].

  • Ilovemyrace

    Does anyone know what the fighting was about and who was involved? Was is Black on Black, or Black on Hispanic? or Black on White?

    • Ulick

      Looked like black-on-black in the video. Somebody must have accidentally stepped on someone’s sneakers or something.

  • mark levin

    would it be professional to maybe say WHERE this is? unprofessional website really annoying…losing my tolerance with stupid people

    and then they start that old cant of, “authorities are SOOOOO fed up, that they are going to start holding adults responsible”.

    And of course it never works. “Authorities” have enough trouble trying to a enforce adult crimes against adults, let alone juvenile crimes.

    • The__Bobster

      First they have to find the “adults”.

      • JohnEngelman

        A lot of time the mothers do not know who the fathers are.

    Benton “Harlem”,Michigan, is a nearly all black town that sits just across the river from the once beautiful town of St. Joseph. Because of the violence, ignorance, brutality, and savagery of the former, many blacks are now moving over to the latter. It’s only a matter of a very short time before St. Jo goes down.

  • The__Bobster

    If they could make this PPV, maybe the taxpayer could get some of his money back.

  • falsedawn

    I’d break this up in twenty minutes. Just bring in the dogs. Once dogs show up, the whole temper of mobs changes. Even blacks understand when the dogs show up, the riot is over.

    • Non Humans

      Don’t forget the Firehoses/Watercannons too. When the shezillas have their makeup washed off and reveal that they look like the bucks, it changes the game entirely.

      • Pelagian

        Well that’s harsh … but funny .., and rings true. So …. “Like”

      Dogs…..what a great idea.
      Benton Harbor is a small lake side town on the west side of Michigan. The town is right on Lake Michigan. It SHOULD BE a little resort town where you can go on vacation, rent a cottage, go charter fishing… Haiti should be. Strangely they are both crime ridden disasters with thrid world conditions. WONDER WHY????

    negroes will be negroes. A schwartzer bleibt a schwartzer.

      A bit Denglischy with the indefinite articles, eh? But yes, Hurricane Zulu strikes with the same magnitude er’ywer (sp). What strikes me is the complete and utter hatred that blacks have for smaller, at times rural, White communities. They incessantly redneck bash, and disingenuously despise being the center of attention, yet they remain and procreate. I’ve witnessed this phenomenon throughout Michigan, Wisconsin, Kentucky and Mass. If anything, blacks overcompensate when deprived of their media-enforced urban identity. I would imagine this is less a problem among deep South blacks, but I am only speculating.

      • Morris Thecat

        not Denglisch, straight yiddish

    I said that these videos would keep on coming. The monkeys just can’t help themselves. This is what they live for. The day is fast approaching when segregation does indeed return. The monkeys will be walled off from the human beings, no one will care to stop their fights then.

    • Non Humans

      That would be something to look forward to and to believe in. I wish that I could feel optimistic of that prognosis, but the libtards…

      • Morris Thecat

        the libtards will be thrown over the wall, into the nigra area, that will be the last anyone ever hears from them

  • bigone4u

    I recall that Benton Harbor Mi was the home of Heatkit. A white man with a soldering iron and a kit could build his own color TV, ham radio, etc. It was the peak of white civilization and a clear demonstration of white ingenuity. The old white guys who had constructive hobbies like kit building are mostly gone now, but as for me I will not forget.

    • Pelagian

      Such a great point. That was a high water mark. And the essence of white, American masculinity

  • Howard W. Campbell

    Youtube and a few other web sites, The modern version of the minstrel show. Just keep it coming so that the descendants of those who marched for civil rights can see what a waste of effort.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    This is a trial run and tune up for when the EBT cards flash ERROR and they can’t get their ration of Skittles, Iced Tea and Colt 45 Malt Liquor.

    And there’s no need for high capacity magazines?

    Hundreds of blacks riot and fight at a Louisiana mall last week. Hundreds of blacks riot and fight at a baby shower in Massachusetts a couple days ago. Hundreds of blacks riot and fight at a high school in Michigan yesterday. It doesn’t matter what part of the country (or the world) you’re in, or what kind of politics that state may have (Louisiana a red state, Michigan and Mass blue states) the results are often the same when you get hundreds of this element together.

    • IstvanIN

      01/07/13 Cherry Hill Mall, NJ, race fight.

  • [Guest]

    Not surprising. Benton Harbor demographics: 89.2% “African American” and 7% White.

  • Non Humans

    Ever notice how every so often there is a debate about the “Incredible Edible Egg”? Some say they’re “Miracle Food”, a little later some say otherwise. Etc, Etc.
    You would think that with all of footage of non-humans acting in this manner, as well as many other facets of criminal culture (and let’s not forget our DoJ statistics), that the libtarded MSM would stop heralding the non-humans as “Miracle Food”…
    Paging Common Sense, Please come in Common Sense…

  • The Final Solution

    200 kids – more than my entire high school graduating class. In four years of high school, there were 2, maybe 3 fights. My school was 99.9% white.

  • IKantunderstand

    Let me make myself perfectly clear: I don’t care if it is the Frankfurt School, Christianity, or the Enlightenment, that has caused White societies across the world to adopt policies which do nothing but end up in White genocide. The bottom line is this: We need to fight back! If the cowardly French can amass a substantial amount of people to protest gay marriage, why the hell can’t we do the same in support of the 2nd Amendment? Hey keyboard warriors! You got any balls?

  • Pelagian

    Benton Harbor? I’m picturing men in sailor’s caps, kerchiefs, white dungarees .. 92% of whom just happen to be African gentlemen.

    Did I get that right?!

  • Sloppo

    I am so disappointed. These reporters and police officers are clearly racist. How dare they criticize Bantus who are only guilty of behaving as normal Bantus! We’ve been enriched by this wonderful diversity … and now these people get on television and talk like it’s a bad thing. I can’t believe it.

  • Loyalist

    This isn’t news, just negroes being negroes. Move on folks, nothing to see here.

  • me

    How much is this costing the local taxpayers of Benton Harbor, both in pouring money into the school district and the extra police presence needed? Take away the social services from the parents of these ‘urban youths’….they’ll have to get a job and won’t have time for this nonsense!

  • StillModerated

    The white parts of Benton Harbor MI, are 90% white. Along Empire Ave it’s 90% bantu. The low-lifes are concentrated into 4 particular census districts.
