Police: Evansville Man Shot Early Friday Morning, Is Expected to Survive

Richard Gootee, Courier Press, May 30, 2014

Evansville police are investigating an early-morning shooting on Friday that left one person injured.

Authorities identified the injured man as 39-year-old Burt Bender. Bender was shot once in the abdomen. He is expected to survive, according to an Evansville Police Department news release.

{snip} Bender told investigators he was walking home when a group of black men in a red Pontiac car approached him.

Bender, who is white, told police that the men in the car yelled several racial slurs at him before one of them shot him, according to the department news release.

      I agree. Ho hum. White people are not as smart as they claim. Half of them keep believing in this thing called diversity, and the other half are too afraid to end it.

      • Ronald

        D.B. Cooper.

        You are probably right. The pandering ruling class politicians and their pals in the corrupt legal system can ignore ordinary worker **(“middle”)** class White people because they are able to keep them divided. The one half cancels out the other half.

        When was the last time, you personally had a choice?
        In the old soviet union, they had a secret police who would come to your house in the middle of the night and make you disappear. Everyone understood that those who disappeared were tortured to death, but not before they watched their loved ones being tortured to death. The only reason the whole thing fell apart is the slaves saw less and less point to doing their job.
        In the US, no one pays the psychopaths to come to your house at night, directly. Instead, they give negros welfare and let them run amok to randomly invade peoples homes, rape your wife and pour draino down her throat before burning your home down with your children inside. Most of the time, you are allowed to kill them and no one says much of anything, but occasionally, doing so will get you thrown in a cage to be ass raped by hundreds of negros. That is in the US, mind you. In every other country, daring to defend yourself gets you immediately put in that situation.
        The average white is given a choice….watch TV while drinking beer and getting fat, and keep your mouth firmly shut…..or…..

        • 1G25

          There is another choice.
          Shut up.

          • Jinhunter

            I agree wholeheartedly! Only zombies do random shyt! Take them out at will, I don’t care, they’re dead anyway and are of no use. Thanks in advance.

        • Jinhunter

          White paranoia at it’s finest! It’s why you guys flip the fuq out and shoot up school children. Watch out for the blank wide-eyed stare! Do you have it yet? LOL!!!

  • Who Me?

    This man was a victim of racism and a victim of black-on-white violence, but it will go down the rabbit hole to be forgotten by everyone except the victim, and maybe his relatives if he has any. The general public won’t notice, the cops will forget it in the huge deluge of thousands of assaults just like this every day, and the attackers sure won’t remember it anymore than they’ll remember what they ate for breakfast last week. These hundreds of thousands of “forgotten cases” all across America are the ones we need to showcase. Put them out there in all their ugly, painful, humiliating, infuriating numbers. Let the people who still don’t know what we are facing know how the statistics stand. Rub “our elected officials” noses in it. Draw a line in the sand and say, “This is where it ends.” Start decorating some lampposts if necessary.

    • D.B. Cooper

      If this incident made 99 white people have their “Aha!” moment, then this was a necessary incident. Changes can’t happen when you replace a democratic liberal president with a republican liberal president.
      Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.

      • M.Magog

        I’m not interested in a president. At this point we need a military, white military take over and a generation or two of martial law. Companies like Google, all the media outlets, microsoft, universities etc. , all the subversive companies should be immediately seized and nationalized. I’m afraid democracy has become the tool of our destruction.

        • 4321realist

          Exactly what I have concluded.

          It is this system that has been manipulated by a few who are small in number but have immense influence via their control of the organs of communication who are taking the place of a single dictator.

          That’s why I’ve maintained that there’s no difference between totalitarian government control and democracy if this kind of situation is in place.

          I think we’re beyond the point of no return, and it will take a purge of certain existing elements before anything resembling a democracy can ever be put in place again.

          But I also think any resulting armed conflict will see us separated into our own sovereign areas and never united as one country again.

          • 1G25

            Our Southern ancestors knew what was needed back in the 1850s. We aren’t outnumbered 3:1 anymore.

          • Jacobite2

            As fewer than 2/3 of US citizens are even white, you must be figuring better racial solidarity than I see today.

          • Jacobite2

            Under a totalitarian dictatorship, everybody understands what’s going on. In the US today, many people believe they have a choice in the matter. Good-cop-bad-cop is one of the oldest Leftist tricks. As long as they control both parties — no problems. Arguing about Dems vs GOP is like two old guys arguing about Buick vs Oldsmobile (both made in the same factory — with Pontiacs).

        • JohnEngelman

          Because you are aware that most Americans – and this certainly includes me – do not agree with you, you long for a dictatorship that does agree with you.

          A dictatorship is more likely to disagree with you. It will not allow you to disagree with it.

      • JohnEngelman

        The Republican Party exists to advance the economic interests of the richest ten percent of the country. The richest ten percent live in safe neighborhoods.

        • Sloppo

          The R and D parties are owned and controlled by the same small group of people, and they exist to promote the interests of that small group of people. That small group controls an enormous percentage of the world’s wealth and it’s much less than 1% of the population.

          • JohnEngelman

            If you are advocating campaign finance reform, I agree with you. We need to get the money out of politics. In many democratic countries political campaigns are financed by the government. That is what I advocate.

          • Sloppo

            We can talk about “getting the money out of politics” until we’re blue in the face, but the small group which owns both political parties also happens to own the major propaganda networks and the largest and most successful counterfeiting scheme in the history of the world (The Federal Reserve Bank). In other words, they exert enormous control over public opinion and our financial destiny. I’m not sure how a little “campaign finance reform” could do much damage to the power of that cartel.

          • JohnEngelman

            Now you are sounding like a revolutionary Marxist. Back in the day I knew a few of these. They were real Marxists, not the bogus “cultural Marxist” kind.

            Government financing works in other democratic countries. It can work here if there is popular support for it.

          • Sloppo

            I’m not sure how you came to the idea that I’m a “marxist”. I sometimes don’t agree with you, but usually there seems to be some sort of logic in your posts. This one seems rather outlandish however, so I’m very interested to know how you came up with your conclusion.

          • JohnEngelman

            I do not think you are a Marxist. Nevertheless, your argument and the arguments of others on American Renaissance that American democracy is a charade reminds me of arguments I had with Marxists during the War in Vietnam.

            Now I agree that the one percent has too much power. What would you do to reduce that power and make American politics more democratic?

          • Sloppo

            I believe it’s important to stop pretending like we’re supposed to be a democracy. We’re supposed to be a constitutional republic and I think that’s pretty close to the ideal form of government, but that can’t work properly if we’re a “diverse” collection of incompatible racial/cultural groups. To make our government work properly, we would need to separate peoples so they would be able to peacefully determine their own destinies. As long as we’re “promoting diversity” we will have deadly violent chaos unless our government becomes a police state which controls everything.

            Perhaps the best first step to addressing the power monopoly of the tiny fraction of the 1% might be to abolish the Federal Reserve Bank. How did we ever get stupid enough to think that a private organization should be allowed to print money out of nothing, loan it to the government, and force taxpayers to pay “interest” on those “loans”? A good step number two might be for us to stop fighting wars to force similar schemes upon other nations.

          • JohnEngelman

            I believe it’s important to stop pretending like we’re supposed to be a democracy. We’re supposed to be a constitutional republic.

            – Sloppo

            There is no distinction being a democracy and “a constitutional republic.” The United States is both.

            Nevertheless, as long as the present system of legal bribery continues the one percent will dominate, although not control, the political process.

            It is in the interest of the one percent that the United States continue to import cheap labor, while exporting good jobs. Those people do not really need middle class consumers. They can modify the economy so that it creates fewer middle class goods, and more upper class goods.

          • Sloppo

            The tiny group of people in charge really don’t need cheap labor all that much. When you can print money out of nothing, loan it to the government and charge the taxpayers for “interest” on those “loans”, your wealth is pretty much unlimited. Nevertheless, third world mass immigration is considered beneficial by the elitists though because it brings conflict which can eventually make a totalitarian police state seem like a necessity.

  • Luca

    “Bender, who is white, told police that the men in the car yelled several racial slurs at him before one of them shot him, according to the department news release.”

    Police still can’t determine a motive and have ruled out a hate crime as the victim was White and only Whites can be racist.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      The motive of this is obvious to a blind man with a cane. but the police cannot come right out and call this attack racial terrorism against whites.

      • Dr. Blooknok

        And you and I know why, that because the “police” operate on racial political orders from mount high. ADL or another control group.

  • [Guest]

    Every day there comes more proof that blacks and civilization simply do not mix.

  • D.B. Cooper

    Some enterprising Republican now has a foil next time Al or Jesse open their mouths at a justified shooting.

    • 4321realist

      But they never take advantage of it.

      Look at the Duke rape hoax. (Among many others.)

      There are tens of thousands of black on white rapes every year with the reverse virtually zero, but not one politician or conservative pundit took the lead and made the narrative into one of black on white rape, rather than what it turned out to be which was out-of-control white on black rape.

      It was truly bizarre. They were terrified to mention it, while Sharpton was hysterically screaming about a history of white on black rape.

  • JackKrak

    Sorry, no room for this in the papers – they have to make space for the piece about how some math test somewhere is racist and keeps young black kids from becoming astronauts. Or something.

  • Truthseeker

    If Whites dislike Blacks, they move away from them or otherwise try to avoid them. If Blacks dislike Whites, they commit violent, sometimes fatal attacks against them.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      In a sane world, every black-on-white crime would be classified as a hate crime.

  • r j p

    Hopefully Bender, his neighbors, and friends learned a lesson.

  • Dave4088

    Eric “My Peeps” Holder said today that he will resume a Clinton era program to monitor and harass “homegrown extremists”, so I’m sure he’ll sic the FBI on the blacks who committed this racially motivated hate crime of a white man as well as on the New Black Panther Party.
    Of course, the cynical side of me thinks he defines “homegrown extremists” as any white person who thinks impure thoughts of blacks, spanics and Jewish people as well as those who abide by the Constitution and are suspicious of government power.

    • Rhialto

      Your president won a second term, and his signature program, Obamacare (pka HIllarycare), is here to stay. So he can just relax and have fun. What is more fun for a Black man than inflicting pain and destruction on White men. The next 2.5 years will be interesting.

      • DonReynolds

        One thing that you must already know….things always change and they do not always change in the same direction. My bet is that things will swing back the other way.
        Obamacare is not here to stay. It does not work and it cannot work. It will fail.

        • TL2014

          May you be right!!!

    • I’m sure this monitoring program is to address the dangerous vigilantee white supremacist group that sprung up recently in New Orleans. AmRen did an article on this and this group seems way too prominent for Holder to resist smacking down.

  • Ahnenerbe ᛟ

    Well it could have been worse, like this Boer in SA

    • Monmouth78

      This should be shown to all whites who hire non-white workers. Terreblanche was not a white nationalist or ideologically allied to us in any sense at all. He was an extremist in defense of cheap, nonwhite labor.

  • dd121

    I wonder why Brian Williams didn’t lead off with this story?

    • Ahnenerbe ᛟ

      NBC is owned by jews and jews want the total destruction of the White race through numerous channels. Pun intended

      • TL2014

        Not all of us do.

  • Oldcorporal

    At least he was able to tell the police what type of vehicle the thugs were riding around in. Now if “Evansville’s finest” will just do the job they’re being paid to do, and find the perps. By the way, this is a very good reason NOT to be walking home alone, in a big city, in the middle of the night. I used to do it in Kansas City, many years ago when I was young, foolish, and serving in the Army. Guess I was either lucky, or my guardian angel was on duty, because no one ever bothered me. I sure as hell wouldn’t do it NOW, with the deterioration of our cities being the way it is.

    • MBlanc46

      Sometimes I look back at the things I did when I was younger and foolisher make me break out in a cold sweat.

  • JohnEngelman

    I am glad they reported the race of the criminals.

  • The undeclared race war on whites is going just the way Obama/Holder want it to go. Whites are dying and/or terrorized, but the media keeps yelling racist at anyone who resists the Negro worship that is the country’s unofficial religion. Just pretend this shooting and the thousands of others aren’t happening. Be good little boys and girls.

    Obama’s pastor said it, “God-dam America.” He meant white America. And Obama sat there every Sunday or 20 years nodding in agreement. Obama is fulfilling Reverend Wright’s dream. For Now.

    Righteous hatred of blacks is called for. Righteous anger too. If God is not on our side, then their is no God.

    • MBlanc46

      Righteous resistance at the very least.

  • ncpride

    I just read a post from a FB friend asking for prayers for her brother. Apparently, he was beaten pretty severely in Detroit very recently by 5 ‘people’, and required surgery. Of course, her brother is White and I’d bet money his attackers are black. No one in custody yet, but we’ll see how this plays out.

    • TL2014

      Ncpride, I’m sorry to hear that! Was that reported anywhere?

      • ncpride

        I’ve been searching Google, but found nothing yet. She was not clear about when this happened, but got the impression it was today some time.

    • MBlanc46

      Best wishes for his recovery.

  • Stan D Mute

    In today’s media climate, it’s downright ASTONISHING they reported the victim was white, the assailants were African, and that anti-white slurs were shouted at the time of the shooting. Consider how often this exact scene plays out and all we get is, “random shooting, victim in wrong place at wrong time. Police are investigating.”

    Somebody get the CrimeThink News Enforcement Division down to Evansville quick, before this outrage is reported somewhere else!

  • TL2014

    If this was a bad (black) area, he shouldn’t have been walking there at night unarmed. If armed,he should have fired immediately upon hearing the first slur.
    That’s the reality we live in these days.

  • MBlanc46

    I guess that I’m fortunate that the only thing that I ever got from a carload of Negroes was a bottle thrown at my head.

  • fgbrunner3

    First rule, arm yourself.

  • IKUredux

    At this point in time, it doesn’t really matter where you are. If there are ANY Blacks around, you could be a victim. So, in an all White area, you could be a victim. In a mixed race area, you could be a victim. If you live in an all Black area, well, duh! Whatever you do, do not live or work anywhere near an interstate on or off ramp, especially if it is within 40 miles of a major “urban” area. If your neighborhood bank puts up “bullet proof” shields, it is time to move. If your local school district becomes a “school of choice” district, move. You know, we all really have only two choices: Move or make them move.There is no safe place geographically for the White middle class of America. We Whites are the plumbers and the electricians, the rough carpenters and the finish carpenters. We are the welders, the locksmiths, the auto mechanics. WE make America RUN. Even people of color in this country, prefer to have Whites fix whatever problem they are having. (Google it). So, why the hell are we in retreat? FIGHT BACK! Remember: We Whites can live without Blacks (happily, tranquilly, and never missing them at all). Blacks, on the other hand, are a complete mess without Whites telling them what to do. So, why in hell would we ever allow Blacks to take over the gov. of the US , as we have?

  • N.W.A. ☪

    so the black version of the klan just drove up, spit out “i hate whitey!” shot him and went on their merry way? no robbery, no cameras, no motive huh?
    just pure black hate and black brute theory huh?
    you white people are really smart.

    • Tom Thumb

      No, the Klan went out to do a particular job that had to be done. These blacks just happened on these Whites and took action on the spur of the moment. That’s a big difference and for the most part the only difference that will matter once race war gets rolling.

    • Luca

      Blame the reporter and the police who reported exactly what you just said. Don’t blame us White peoples, we just tryin to keep it real.

      Perhaps it is incredible for you to think that black people could actually hate White people and commit a violent act, but you never know, this might be the one time in the history of the world that it happened.

      Then again, maybe not.

    • 4321realist

      “just pure black hate and black brute theory huh?”

      You got it, bro.

      But how does brute “theory” play into the situation?

      “you white people are really smart.”

      Right again, bro.

      And we have a line of successes to prove that fact also.

      To say nothing of tens of thousands of tests and real life experiences which offer irrefutable proof.

      Next question.

    • That’s pretty much exactly what the article says happened.

  • Armando

    If you are white (or Asian) and are walking by yourself near black neighborhoods, you must have the mindset, that you are entering a potential combat zone, where you are seen as prey. Prepare and act accordingly. This is particularly true after dusk, but can happen at anytime. Look for potential cover along the way. Telephone poles and thick trees make great cover. Move to cover and shoot back.

    • About 15 years ago, two middle school-aged half-white, half-Korean kids were gunned down by a pair of blacks. The boys had been playing video games at the home of one, and were walking to the other’s parents’ place for dinner, followed by a movie. Neither of them survived. There was no robbery; the only motive appears to have been that the kids were light-complexioned, and this happened in a fairly good, middle-class white neighborhood in broad daylight.

      • nicholasstix

        What city was that?
