Caught on Camera: Drexel Hill Man Punched in the Face at Trolley Stop

Dave Kinchen, My Fox Philly, June 15, 2014

A man sitting at a trolley stop in Drexel Hill is punched in the face, and it’s all caught on camera.


He says he was just minding his own business at the Burmont and Morgan trolley stop last week when about six teens came up to him.

“It’s a feeling to me that I know it wasn’t personal. I know, I don’t do anything to anybody,” he said.

The video shows the attacker standing around for several seconds before striking the man in the face.

“It could have been worse because they did hit me with glasses on, and they could have sent my glasses right into my eyes,” said the victim. “I take anxiety medicine and it was quite a setback.”

Upper Darby Police are calling the incident yet another in the popular ‘Knockout Game’ where people are punched out of the blue while someone else records it.

Police also believe one of the suspects posted the video on Facebook for the world to see.

“Extremely disappointing about how the world’s changed since I’ve known it,” the victim said.

    It’s a feeling to me that I know it wasn’t personal. I know, I don’t do anything to anybody.”

    Ahh, yes you did. You’re White.

  • Truthseeker

    The world has changed indeed. The more “empowered” blacks get, the more they want revenge on the Whites they’ve been taught to hate simply for their race.

  • benvad

    They’ve got to go, pure & simple.

  • dukem1

    This victim must have suffered brain damage…No one is that liberal!

    • Kenner

      It reads like the perps actually got blood from a turnip. I read on another site the victim was homeless; if so, he has other issues.

  • Magician

    That’s right pal. Blame the entire world. You are not any different from a feminist who blames each and every man in the entire country, after you experience some kind of a violence or harrassment in the hands of a man

    • Magician

      On another note….

      Can you believe this is a photo taken in Luton, a large town only located 30 miles above London England, just a few days ago?

      • Martel

        Tommy Robinson must be happy he is out of prison, to return to his working class neighbourhood in Luton.

      • David Ashton

        A representative urban sample rather than an isolated rarity. But most people at present in England are stilll “White British”.

        Ms Penny Young, chief executive of NatCen Social Research, which has just done a national opinion survey, laments the hardening of public opinion against cosmpolitanism: “In an increasingly diverse, multicultural country, we might expect people to be more relaxed about what it means to be British, yet the trend is going in the opposite direction.” She said that in the past people shied away from criticising anyone who could not speak English, but clearly this was no longer the case.” (The Times, July 17).

      • kjh64

        Christ, that picture is just sad. I HATE multiculturalism.

        • Magician

          I understand that it could be impossible to have a country full of one specific race or ever expect everyone in a country to be heterosexual for example, but this is invasion and destruction of a culture and identity

  • Giovanni704

    Is it just me…or does it seem like every time a local news channel covers these type of stories, they always strategically have a very pleasant Black reporter/analyst on the screen so that the audience is very clear that this behavior is not representative of the larger black community?

    • Mary

      Yes, but blacks seem to be way overrepresented on local news channels regardless.
      They certainly are in this region!

    • Kenner

      It’s also done, I believe, to discourage the white victim from pointing out the racist nature of the attack.

    • JP Rushton

      It’s not just you. Once you see it, you always notice it. I have seen a white reporter cover a black hate crime only once. Their token must have been sick that day.

    • Magician

      Whenever there was a news about Eve Carson and her murderers on TV it was done by a black reporter.

      And on top of that, the mainstream media constantly and endlessly tries to convince us that…..

      – All black men in the country work at very professional positions such as doctors, engineers and are very warm, well-mannered, and family oriented.
      – Whenever there is an interracial couple on TV it is black male – white female
      – I see ten times more black men than I do black women on TV. If the mainstream media wants to force us to see blacks, then at least use more black women.

  • Yak, yak, yak, nothing but worthless talk about the attack. Honesty would require somebody saying, “It’s nothing but a g*dd*mn bunch of N*****s acting like a bunch of g-d N*****s.

    All this yakking about unjustified and the way the world has changed is p*nsy talk. When is a victim going to say, “I’m hunting the brown skins down and I’m going to kill them.”

    That’s how real men talk and act. Revenge. The “teens” if caught are going to get counseling as their punishment, while they laugh at the impotence of the white man.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Exactly. The Klansman of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, especially as portrayed by Thomas Dixon, embodied the ideal of white masculinity. Bold, decisive and not willing to put up with the machinations of a corrupt and inefficient federal government. We could use more white men like that.

    • MBlanc46

      Revenge. Sweetest thing in life.

      • Yep, but I’m surprised the moderator allowed this comment to stay up. I thought for sure that it would be taken down. I suppose it’s up due to the philosophical nature of the comment.

        • MBlanc46

          I’m surprise that any of the replies survived as well.

    • Bill Moore

      Hello bigone4u,

      Thank you very much. Revenge is the only answer. We have to get a bunch of guys to take out about a dozen Africans for each of their transgressions.

      About five years ago, in Pittsburgh, PA a neighbor of mine was killed by an African who went out hunting Caucasians to kill. I tried to get my neighbors to go with me to get retribution of about twenty Africans. I couldn’t get anyone to go with me.

      Our time will come, and when it does, it takes a lot to piss of Caucasian men, but when it happens, we can’t stop until it the problem is solved permanently.

      Thank you for letting me rant,
      Bill Moore

    • I suspect most white guys don’t do that because we have better expectations of life than rotting in prison. The old saying goes “When you seek revenge, dig two graves and not one.”

  • ncpride

    Bunch of useless cowards. They always attack in numbers, and seem to target the weakest among us. They think this makes them ‘cool’ or ‘bad’ but in reality, they look like the lowest of pathetic wimps (not the word I wanted to use) and the cowards they are.

    • thomasdosborneii

      That’s exactly right, it shows how weak they really are. By the way, I do think this “game” should be charged as attempted murder (NOT “battery”), and all members of the gang that are part of it should be charged as assessories to attempted murder.

  • cherrie greenbaum123

    I know the area fairly well. Drexel Hill at one time was a middle and upper middle class white, mostly Italian, Irish neighborhood of attractive Dutch colonials and four squares. Well tended, postage stamp front yards with neatly trimmed hedges framed the carefully mowed lawns. Darby and Upper Darby were mostly white, working class. Very blue collar, lots of row homes, neatly kept front porches. About 50 years ago you know who moved in and slowly but surely took over large swaths of formerly decent neighborhoods. Fifteen or 20 years ago the area became almost completely negro and the crime has been out of control ever since. The whites, of course, couldn’t get out of there fast enough. As is usually the case, the ones that got out early enough, say 1970 or so, got the best prices for their homes. Drexel Hill still has a few nice blocks, however news like this doesn’t surprise me in the slightest. Simply another example of the browning of America.

  • dd121

    In mere seconds this poor liberal became disappointed by six teens just horsing around.

    • Kenner

      He had high hopes for them.

  • r j p

    A 50 year old male wearing an xBox360 t-shirt and Timberland boots (in summer)?
    Either a hipster wannabee or the “strange” guy in the mensroom.

    Sorry, easy target. I am not saying he deserved it but he was probably to busy searching CL’s M4M ads to see it coming. Always be vigilant when using public transportation.

    • IstvanIN

      Lots of men wear work boots in the summer because they work at manual labor and people wear all sorts of t-shirts with sayings on them, sometimes I don’t even think the wearer pays much attention to what they say.

      • r j p

        Look closer.
        His “work boots” are not dirty, never been dirty.
        Where do you where to work “work boots” that never get dirty?
        His shirt is brand new.
        He’s a 50 yo homosexual or wannabee hipster.
        Either way he will help you find the change in your pocket.

        • IstvanIN

          You don’t know that he is either gay or a hipster, I see no reason to call him disparaging names. And even if he was he didn’t deserve to be slugged.

  • So CAL Snowman

    “Extremely disappointing about how the world’s changed since I’ve known it,” the victim said.”

    The world hasn’t changed buddy, only Western civilization. Black and brown people have ALWAYS been violent, blood thirsty, primitive savages. The only difference is that instead of being confined to their third and fourth world ghetto homelands, “our governments” now give them free reign to pillage formerly peaceful, first world White countries.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      True. They chimp out in style here.

    • kikz2

      in the US, we give them trains, so they can go hunt out of their hoods.. some caught, even admitted that’s why they took the trains, ‘easy White pickings’.

      i thank God, the train up here to the N. Dallas exo-burbs was pulled up in the late 90’s, however even expensive neighborhoods living w/in a couple of miles of the interstate are still vulnerable to drive-by predation.

  • Whitegirlbleedalot posts a lot of these attacks. Here are 3 conclusions: 1) The liberal (mostly) white media has created a climate of victimization, jealousy and hatred of whites for these black hoodlums who are mostly reared by single mothers with no father, 2) that same media is complicit in covering up these kinds of hate crimes because it goes against the liberal playbook of black oppression (they still live in the 60’s) and lastly 3), whites have become soft and craven since they switched their status in America from ethnic Italian, Polish, Irish etc, to simply White. As for me, it’s 1965 again, in my Italian Bronx neighborhood, and I’m of my rooftop ready to defend. No fear.

  • Rick

    The first clue that something is going to take place for any aware individual is a group of blacks loitering. Second clue was the lone black pacing back and forth in front of the guy. I would have been on high alert when I saw the group of blacks, with a hand on a hidden weapon during the pacing action. I marvel at the naivete of the average white person.

    • TXCriollo

      This comes from the white liberal mentality taught to kids in the burbs, most never have any real interactions with blacks until college or they move to the hip city. I lived in the south for the earily years of my life then 7th grade and up in the north. It was night and day on how the teachers talked about race. Texas blacks are not all bad but be careful in their majority neighborhood if you are white or Mexican they will not like that you are there, this was a mexican-american 3rd grade teacher no less. In 7th grade my first year in northern schools, blacks were these victims. I raised my hand and said one time well how come their areas are so bad, teacher in ny had no answer. This is why around blacks never relax

    • kikz2

      the idiot should’ve tried to leave when they came in…that aside….invading someone’s space like that, should’ve gotten the youth ventilated, or at least seriously made to question his assessment of the situation.

  • fgbrunner3

    The knock game will stop when the banditti are shot dead on regular basis.

    • LHathaway

      Too funny. I remember a friend of mine telling me a story about when he lived in Atlanta. He said has 20, so this must have been around 26 years ago. I don’t remember him telling me where he was, perhaps waiting on a bus, but a young guy black guy walked up to him and asked, ‘how old are you’? He said ’20’. The guy said, ‘that’s old enough’ and then punched him in the face. I’m sure if we go back 25 years before that we get the same thing, and if we go back 25 years before that (outside the deep south) we get the same thing. I suppose if you lived in the deep south, if the authorities thought you might be so fed up and go on out your own and do something, they would have ‘the klan march’. Notice, then as now, our white leadership only cares about keeping us from causing trouble.

      • r j p

        … our white leadership only cares about keeping us from causing trouble.

        Our (w)hite leadership only cares about us not protecting ourselves.

    • Cid Campeador

      It will stop when I Banditti get knocked out or better yet, knocked off.

  • JohnEngelman

    Then young black men wonder why whites avoid them.

  • Easyrhino1

    One non-lethal self defense tool that is inexpensive and doesn’t require a permit is bear repellent. If this can be used to dissuade a angry bear it will also work on urban rat.

    • Cid Campeador

      Wasp and Hornet bomb is the best. One shot in the eyes. When he hits the ground screaming, another stream right down the throat.
      You could also administer the Coup de Grace with another stream down the throat or a well place round to the forehead.

      • Kenner

        Please repost this from time to time. Sounds like the best Bantu repellent short of lead.

  • gemjunior

    Back to Africa, every last one.

  • Löwenmensch ᛟ

    Based on the victims statements, I could care less. He”S is a soft liberal n*gger lover

    • Cid Campeador

      He’s been “Fundamentally transformed”. Our Pubic (error intended) education all the way to college level is teaching our White young people to hate themselves.

  • Bill Moore


    Is that the Africans prey on African lovers, or does someone, somehow, put words into the victims mouth telling the media that they forgive the African that beat them up?

    If it was me, I would suggest retribution of twenty for one. Not just beating up twenty Africans, but driving through their area shooting about twenty for retribution.

    Just My Thoughts,
    Bill Moore

    • Cid Campeador

      When the White race awakens that might be exactly what could happen.

  • ViktorNN

    First off, “knockout game” attacks don’t exist according to the media.

    Second, one of the main tenets of the theory of “white privilege” says that white people have freedom of movement in public that other races don’t have.

    Therefore, this story cannot be true either empirically or logically.

    The video must be doctored and this white person must be delusional.

  • HJ11

    It’s too bad the White victim gave such a weak response to the pess about the attack. He should have made it very clear that in his view it was a race hate attack and the perps should be charged with hate crimes–not just the puncher, but also the one(s) filming the attack.

  • cranky_1970

    Make anyone who uploads a knockout video an accomplice and give them a mandatory 5 year sentence.

  • Mark KIing

    Clearly Negro’s are a significantly differing species, genetically. Violent, savage, and with extremely diminished IQ’s.

    We really need some type of reservation or preserve to send them to. Safer for everyone?

  • ImTellinYa

    Normal behavior for low-IQ, feral savages of the kind championed by that affirmative-action parasite currently defiling the White House. And the Republicans cower in fear.

  • scutum

    If you’re white you should not be riding the bus in any of our large cities. In my city the blacks are even attacking the bus drivers. The Irony is that almost all of the drivers that have been attacked are also black.

    • awb

      Why attack the driver? Dumb. Happen’s here in Cowtown, USA. K.C.Mo.

  • Nancy

    My family of origin lived in a few different areas around there (Plymouth Whitemarsh, Drexel, Abington…even South Philly). My Italian family are BIG BELIEVERS in retributive justice. I might not look like much by myself, but the Glock under my shirt is a different story.

  • David Wright

    That’s right, I am not supposed to notice the hoodies either.

  • Jon Doe

    I just dont get why we dont join their “game”, same rules apply and if or when legal/media action occurs, use the same exact propaganda excuse. If we do the same, they have to call us “teens and youths” the media have to come out and make excuses for us, “we are poor” its culture” they just kids” they need stuff to do” underprivileged” bad families”


      Wrong! The media is not going to make those excuses for White people. That is not what they do, at all. All defensive excuses are reserved for minorities ( mostly black ), and minorities ONLY! The only excuses the media uses concerning White people are offensive excuses. Meaning they’re creating, maintaining and proliferating excuses as to why minorities should hate, assault, rape and murder Whites at any and every moment their little hearts desire. After all, as the media says over and over and over again. There’s racism, discrimination, the kkk, jim crow, trayvon, rodney king, and not to mention the “proven fact” that all black crime and every single problem in black America is entirely caused by White people! < So sayeth every single media source other than FOX News ( and even there sometimes ) all day everyday.

      We are marked, we are hated, and there will be no fairness in American media concerning anything White, period! Example: They highlighted and harped on the one single knock out game committed by a White guy. And refuse to even acknowledge the color of these somehow raceless "youths" carrying out thousands of these knock out game assaults, let alone their motivation of pure racial hatred. Why? Because that hatred is 100% sponsored, and cheer-leaded on by the very media stations and institutions that are supposed to be covering it. They show us constantly that they have painted a target on the forehead of Whitey everyday. There will be no fairness for Whitey in the American media!

      • Jon Doe

        “Wrong! The media is not going to make those excuses for White people.”

        Dang.. Chill out, I was just being sarcastic, I thought it was obvious.


          Dang.. I thought my obvious recognition of your obviousness was obviously recognized? Sorry!

    • I don’t want the media calling me a “youth”, even though I look young. That said, I could promise to behave myself so long as the government gave me plenty of free stuff. In particular, I want one of those little Asian mill/drill/lathes. And a 3-D printer. And a laser metal sinterer. I gots ta be haben dat, gnome sayin?

      • Jon Doe

    Remember Channon Christian and Christian Newsom every time you hear of black on White crimes. And the little baby shot in the face while he slept in his carriage.

  • Richard Johnston

    Why allude to them as “teens?” This reinforces the ugly stereotype that all teens are vicious lowlifes….

  • Cid Campeador

    If a Mau Mau attacks you defend yourself with lethal means. When he drops leave the scene.

    This will stop when Whites go “Zimmerman” on them.
