Teenager Who Blamed Attacks on Random Strangers on Being a ‘Young Black Male’ Is Spared Jail

Sam Webb, Daily Mail (London), February 19, 2014

A teenager who attacked two strangers in just three days and blamed his behaviour on being a ‘young black male’ was spared jail today.

Shaqueil Samuels, 19, was one of three thugs who turned on night bus passenger Bronson Maisey, 39, after he told them to stop pressing the stop button.

The security officer was repeatedly punched and had to cling to a pole to prevent his assailants from dragging him onto the street.

Samuels, of Manor Park in East London, had jumped off the bus but got back on after seeing his friends Tesco employee Adebambo Karumwi, 18, and fitness instructor Roland Mubenga, 19, also from Manor Park, start the fight.

Mr Maisey lost a tooth and has had to have extensive dental work since the assault on the N25 night bus as it made its way towards Stratford, east London, in the early hours of December 30, 2012.

Just three days earlier Samuels repeatedly punched a passenger on a train going from Ilford to Liverpool Street just before it pulled in to Stratford, Snaresbrook Crown Court heard.

When he put his bag down next to 49-year-old Hamadi Nebili, the passenger looked up from his newspaper.

Samuels stared at Mr Nebili and said: ‘Are you looking? Are you gay?’

He then unloaded a barrage of punches at the terrified passenger, leaving him with serious head wounds which required stitches.

In a letter to the court Mr Nebili said he now feels anxious every time he leaves his home while Mr Maisey said he has lost his confidence when out and about.

Judge Sarah Paneth said: ‘These were two serious assaults on public transport without provocation of justification.

‘I’ve been told and reject the notion that your actions (Samuels) were due to what you believed to be others’ perception of yourself as a young black male–you cannot be defended on circumstances that are habitual.

‘What you all did was conform to the stereotype you so despise and brought shame to the black community and to your families.

‘You all come from stable and supportive families but you do not deserve medals for travelling on public transport since the offence with no problems–millions of people do that every day.

‘It was a group attack on a lone person and you are all responsible. Look at it this way, I am sure the three of you would not have chosen to attack a young man with a group of friends. Mr Maisey was an easy target.

‘I had adjourned this sentencing to see your remorse and to see whether you were really willing to pay compensation.

‘I accept this was out of character as there is no evidence of this behaviour before or after these incidents.

‘All three of you have before and since been entirely law-abiding and a credit to your community and families.

‘I note that you are prepared to back that up by paying compensation and you are all still in your teens. The effect long term for you and for society are extremely important factors to consider.’

Judge Paneth sentenced Samuels to serve two years in prison, Mubenga to 12 months and Karumwi to 15 months.

All three sentences were suspended for two years with a condition of unpaid work. Samuels must do 200 hours while the other two defendants have to do 100 hours each.

Samuels must also pay Mr Nebili and Mr Maisey £500 each in compensation while Mubenga and Karumwi were ordered to pay Mr Maisey £500 each.

Judge Paneth added: ‘I make it clear the only reason you are all not going into custody today is that these incidents are extremely out of character and isolated.’

The three defendants were all friends and used to go to the same gym together, the court was told.

Samuels, who cares for his arthritis-suffering mother, is now said to feel ashamed by how he reacted to the situations.

    A black person feeling shame, Really? Also fines should have been 10 to 20 thousand. Also no way in hell this is there first time or their last.

    • tlk244182

      That’s a key point. How many of these attacks have they gotten away with? And the message sent is that the penalty is light for first offenders.

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    That’s it, whites should start pulling guns and shooting black attackers between the eyes the moment they start swinging. And if that is not an option and one is up to it, said white should beat them to death or they are crippled.

    • Homo_Occidentalis

      The courts have proven that there will be no justice for white men save that we exact ourselves.

      • Einsatzgrenadier

        If white men want justice, they must return to the vigilantism of the KKK.

      Once my obligations to my elderly mother are finished, I’m responsible for no one other than myself, and if a long prison sentence should be the result of standing my ground, I’m ok with that.

      • Young Werther

        That is as it should be.

  • D.B. Cooper

    Question: Why is it so hard to find a simple picture of Judge Sarah Ruth Paneth, who was appointed by none other than the Queen herself, and I’m not talking about Elton John.

    • Jesse_from_Sweden

      British judges aren’t as public as american judges.
      Judges in most of the world is seen as being impartial, instead of the american way where they are politically appointed and their opinions about abortions, gay rights etc are of crucial importance.

  • David Ashton

    “A credit to your community”? Let’s unpack this phrase, as the deconstructionists say. What is the “community” identified here? How is it imagined in the mind of the judge? How is it relevantly distinguished from others living under the Queen’s Peace? Is the judge a “racist”?

    • SaggyGenes

      If this thug is a credit to his community, it doesn’t speak well of that community.

      • Young Werther

        There is nothing much left of the white London society to speak well of except the White Resistance Movement there.

    • The Final Solution

      Blacks have no concept whatsoever of community.

      • The Verdict of History


        You mean all those “kumbaya-my-lord” proclamations from black leaders that “it takes a village raise a child” have amounted to absolutely NOTHING in the way of improving black welfare?

        Do you mean to tell me that it is just empty sloganeering now that is devoid of any meaningful content?

        You mean I really can’t take these community “leaders” seriously????

        They do when it comes down to extorting money from Whites to benefit them. Once they get it, all bets are off as it’s stolen by whoever is in charge.

    • LHathaway

      he is a racist, but a reverse-racist who raises’communities’ of color, and their denizens, above whites, whites who don’t have ‘white communities’ let alone those who represent white interest those of seeminly lessor importance in ‘multicultural’ communities.

  • Pax Romana

    Any shame they feel is only for getting caught. If any emotions were shown, is would have been uncontrollable laughter over how easy it was to pull another one over on a weak minded bleeding heart Liberal judge.

  • Extropico

    Let’s see; the thug is angry about the stereotype that young black males are shiftless and violent.

    Ergo, he gotzta beat down YT on da bus! Ebonics Logic™

    • Jesse_from_Sweden

      No, no, no.

      You don’t understand. If you read the article you will see that he is actually right about what he says.

      These attacks were because he was a young black male, the judge even points that out.
      ‘It was a group attack on a lone person and you are all responsible.
      Look at it this way, I am sure the three of you would not have chosen to
      attack a young man with a group of friends. Mr Maisey was an easy

      Of course, right afterwards, the judge screws up by saying:
      Judge Paneth added: ‘I make it clear the only reason you are all not
      going into custody today is that these incidents are extremely out of
      character and isolated.’

      If it happened once, then maybe you can say that it is out of character and isolated. But it happened at least twice, that we know of, with possibly more that we don’t know of.
      Two incidents are not isolated, and starts to show a pattern of that persons character.

      • Young Werther

        The white societies of England and America are frightened of the wild-ass people they have allowed into their countries…a rather sick side of me delights to hear of them getting their chops busted. Who can respect someone who allows others to run all over them him/her. What society or culture deserves to survive when they permit themselves to be persecuted, nay…beg for it! Nothing less than they deserve (until they stand up and put a stop to it.).

        • Zaporizhian Sich

          It makes my dark streak’s day when darkies get killed by whites who are not about to allow themselves to be run over by the die-versity juggernaut.

          • Young Werther

            I am sure we are saying two very different things. It is a per-version for a people of a society or culture they claim to hold dear to stand by doing nothing to prevent their own demise. But, what you are saying about your dark streak is exactly what is happening as a perfectly natural response to being threatened and targeted for so long.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            Exactly, and I have a sneaky feeling I will be far from the only one whose dark streak is going to be very well fed in the coming years. Sooner or later, we will have a collective dark streak that will be gorged on the blood of our enemies, literally.

        Excellent point. Something “out-of-character” should mean something that has happened only ONCE. These attacks were repeated.

  • bigone4u

    Blacks and muzzies get a pass in Britain when they commit horrible violent crimes like this one, rapes, pedophilia, etc. The Daily Mail runs stories like this all the time. Even the Brits who leave comments are disgusted by “British justice,” which is really injustice to victims in the name of PC. Brits can’t carry guns, but I’d find myself one of those swords disguised as an umbrella and carry it everywhere if I lived there.

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    The Center for Disease Control and Prevention should classify blacks as a major health risk. You could wind up severely injured or dead because of a chance encounter with blacks.

  • dd121

    So when are they going to be punished for crimes like this? Holder would have charged a white who had done a similar thing with a hate crime.

  • Well, he’s right.

    It’s just that he thought that it would be a get out of jail free card.

    All three of you have before and since been entirely law-abiding and a credit to your community and families.

    So what? A murderer doesn’t commit murder for 99.999999999% of his life. Before he committed the murder, he was completely law abiding, and after he committed the murder, he was completely law abiding. It’s that one second in between that’s hard to overlook.

    “Credit to your community.” Sounds too much like “credit to your race,” a phrase I hate and won’t use. You can’t find a phrase that’s more arrogant and condescending at the same time.

  • bubo

    I don’t even bother getting upset about the articles I read coming from England anymore. Britain and the USA “won” the great war. We are enjoying our reward.

  • John R

    Why do you people have to stereotype blacks like this! Okay, I don’t condone this youths behavior, but come on: His ancestors were forced to come here as slaves, and then to live under Jim Crow laws and deal with the vile threat of lynching by the KKK…..uhhh, what is that you said? This happened in England? OHH, geeze, oops. Okay, ummm, I’ll have to re-write my post, sorry. Next time.

    • Katherine McChesney

      Sorry, I don’t appreciate your kind of humor.

        Another liberal.

  • Nancy Thomas

    Nothing to see here! Focus on the Dunn trial! Whites are crazy, armed, and dangerous!

  • Frank_DeScushin

    How is the attack out of character of the “teen” attacked someone three days earlier? It seems that attacking people is his character.

    And I don’t care whether you have a clean slate in the past or what your background is. There is no reason to attack innocent people so the attacker should suffer a harsh sentence.

    • JohnEngelman

      It is not part of his character. It is part of the character of his race.

  • He whines about being stereotyped, then carries out the stereotype.
    Negroes are the embodiment of hypocrisy walking upright on it’s hind legs.

  • Magician

    If a white person simply talks about the race, he or she can possibly be facing jail time, yet this degenerate takes a full advantage of it to avoid jail time.

    • D.B. Cooper

      While I was trying to find a picture of the judge, I found her rulings highly questionable.
      BTW: I would rather have HIM as my CO.

        As I like to say, the Enterprise-D crashed not because of a female at the helm, but because of a black chief engineer!

  • Truth Teller

    I’m a woman but sometimes I think woman should not even be allowed to vote let alone serve as public officials. Community service for these 2 attacks. Some if not half White women are as much our enemies as blacks and browns.
    England, especially London, Liverpool, all the big cities are covered with security cameras. But even with the video played in court the defendants got off with community service.
    Hope she runs into a pack of savages some day.

    • Magician

      And the security cameras are there to mostly benefit the non whites I am sure

  • Truth Teller

    I believe “credit to the community” means that Samuels has no lengthy felony record at the age of 19 unlike most 19 yr olds in his community. “Reacted to the situation” What situation, a man sitting on a bus reading a newspaper?

  • LHathaway

    “I am sure the three of you would not have chosen to attack a young man with a group of friends. Mr Maisey was an easy target”.

    This judge may sound like he’s making some sense but he’s delusional. No group of ‘friends’ is going to seriously ‘fight back’ against these attacker as a group, at least if they are white, they’re are more afraid of being labeled ‘racist’. A situation brought on by all the other branches of the government.

    • Brian

      Churchill let in TEN MILLION diversities? News to me.

    • Unperson

      Britain did indeed foolishly import millions of undesirable immigrants post WWII — but it sure wasn’t Churchill’s idea. He’d seen enough of various wogs in his military career that he had no desire for them to flood the UK. He opposed UK’s initial non-white immigration throughout the ’50s — as did his old wartime adversary Oswald Mosley — but tragically the “anti” voices of sensible patriots like Churchill, Mosley, and Enoch Powell were not the voices that were listened to; and were not the ones which prevailed.

      • Long Live Dixie

        It does not matter if Churchill supported or opposed mass immigration. He created the conditions that made it happen.

  • Jesse James

    So we have “progressed” beyond jury nullification to judicial nullification. How long before they just give the savages uniforms and allow them to rape, pillage and murder at will?

    • Magician

      They are already beating others up at will it is called knockout game

    • DudeWheresMyCountry?

      I wish they would, then we could fill them with lead.

  • MBlanc46

    It makes perfect sense to me. He’s a young black male, and beating people up is what young black males do. Young white males (mostly) go to school, get an education, try to get a job, and work hard to support a family. You wouldn’t punish them for doing what young white males do, would you?

  • IstvanIN

    What is a Judge Paneth? Is that an English, Scottish or Welsh name? I am not overly familiar with common British names.

    • Long Live Dixie

      A good way to find a name’s origins is to type it into Wikipedia and see where people with that name came from. There are two Paneths listed there and both lived in Austria. At least one of them was Jewish.


    Black privilege, a get out of jail free card, because anything less would be racist.

  • Easyrhino1

    I’m surprised she didn’t sentence the White victims to jail time for scratching the assailants fists with their teeth.

  • ShermanTMcCoy

    Hey white folks! Had enough Ni%%ers YET?

  • Truth Teller

    Sarah Ruth is a good indication of her religion/ethnicity. SOP for the chosen, let black savages get away with beating people. What’s the average sentence for murder in Britain these days? 3 years?

  • JackKrak

    Shaqueil, Adebambo and Mr. Mubenga – just three regular English guys….

  • Young Werther

    When all the whites on buses and everywhere else stand up to fight back collectively nothing will change…so one could say that until that day, this is all nothing less than they (whites) deserve.

    • Anglo

      This is the reason where I live no Whites will ride buses and none of the suburbs want public transportation nor will support it. Buses are just “nigzer” haulers.

      • r j p

        I was on the bus earlier in the week when a black POS got on. He sneezed all over everybody. Then he decided a horizontal row of seats was his bed. Buses in Chicago are becoming as bad as the CTA trains, which are essentially homeless camps.

  • Korean guy

    I am not sure what the judge meant by ‘I make it clear the only reason you are all not going into custody today is that these incidents are extremely out of character and isolated.’

    What is an “out of character and isolated” incident? Is there such a thing as “not isolated” crime, or “not out of character” crime? And it is clearly a crime. A nineteen year old male (legally an adult) punched a 49 year old man and he required stitches. The victim appears to have been Arabic or North African, considering his last name “Nebili”

    And very likely those insects have white British girlfriends…. If 40% of all black UK males marry white British women, then I do expect 80~90% of all black males to have white girlfriends or cohabiting with white women

    And another wonderful thing about an immigrant black male being in a relationship with a native white UK female and have her impregnated? He won’t be deported after he commits a crime! He just has to insist that if he is deported, his personal life will be interfered

  • Max

    So basically, the best this judge can come up with is “Since you don’t have an arrest record (that is the part that’s out of character) this one is a freebee”.

    In the dark part of my soul, I hope she encounters some of these “credits to their community” and they take her somewhere and show her what comes natural to them. If these social-reformers had to live with the consequences of their insidious manipulation, maybe the right social policies would begin to form.

  • Erasmus

    Yet there remain some who still insist that they sincerely do not understand why rational people avoid young, black males.

    Is this really typical of Koreans? I’ve never known asians to behave like that.

  • Reverend Bacon

    There is a snowballing effect of the Affirmative-Action-style coddling and bar-lowering that goes on in the US justice system, and presumably the UK as well. People don’t report many crimes because of either genuine fear of reprisal, or of a misguided sense of charity. Then, things that should be police matters get dealt with in schools- like Saint Skittles, who was found possessing stolen property and burglar tools, but the system gave him a pass. So, my guess is that this thug’s “first” chance is really his fourth or fifth.

    Let’s wait a few years, shall we, and see where this journeyman criminal’s career takes him.

  • Dunnyveg

    I do see a glimmer of hope in this story. I looked at the comments on the original story, and the anti-white liberals are outnumbered at least a hundred-to-one.
