Woman Hit in Head with Pellet Gun in Alleged Hate Crime While Walking Through Central Park: Police

Danielle Schlanger et al., NY Daily News, August 23, 2014

A 36-year-old woman walking through Central Park was shot in the back of the head with a pellet gun in an apparent hate crime, police said Saturday.

The shaken victim told the Daily News she was leaving the park at W. 60th St. and West Drive about 12:05 a.m. Monday when she strolled past a group of black youths.

The two men and three women–all in their late teens or early 20s–said nothing as they passed by. But moments later, the woman felt a “horrible pain” in the back of her head.

“My hand went up to my head, and there was blood gushing everywhere,” said the woman, who asked to be identified only as Hanna.

“I turned around, and I said, ‘What are you doing? Why are you doing this to me? What’s wrong with you people?’”

One of the women immediately unleashed a barrage of racial epithets.

“F— you, you f—— white b—-,” the woman hissed, Hanna recalled.

Then one of the men popped his head out from behind a tree and joined in the racially fueled verbal attack.

“All white people suck,” the man hollered. “F— white people.”

The group fled, leaving Hanna bloodied and in tears.

“I was starting to go into shock,” she said. “There was a lot of blood.”

    Pretty sure that white people is being used figuratively rather literally in this instance. This is just another example of some bored youths having a bit of sport. Lady over reacted to be quite honest, probably best to charge her with filing a fraudulent police report.

      Keep dreaming…

    • Ghost of Galton

      Is my sarcasm meter broken?

      • willbest

        tough crowd. I thought the bit about fraudulent police report would push it over the top.

        • I alllllmost went on the attack, then I read it again, and pondered a bit, then read it through a third time, slowly, digesting it piece by piece, and that was when I realized that literally every single word was so over the top that it HAD to be sarcasm.

          Well done.

        • John R

          A lot of people-including me-have the same problem. Why? Because some of the liberal, and racist black, rhetoric is just so stupid and extreme that it has literally got difficult to detect sarcasm anymore. The caricatures actually look like the real thing!

    • John R

      There you go! You can become a writer for the Times. You seem very well qualified.

    • JustJeff

  • D.B. Cooper

    Could it be…. a white woman liberal democrat has been cured?
    NAH!! Some people will never learn. You’ll see “Hanna” protesting an Amren conference, and still blame white people for why she got shot by another diversity.

    • Sheik Yerbouti

      I do love the classics.

    • Valmet

      Sadly you are correct sir. Liberalism is a mental disorder,to quote from Michael Savage.

  • Oldcorporal

    At the risk of sounding like I’m “blaming the victim,” I would ask Hanna, “What in God’s name were you doing strolling through Central Park at 12:05 a.m.?!” White people who do things like that — out there all on their lonesome, in the middle of the night — make themselves perfect targets for these black thugs. If you MUST go out walking at night, go in pairs (or groups), and pack some heat. Then, if someone pops you with a pellet gun, you can pop them back with something a LOT more lethal!

    • Ghost of Galton

      I agree with going in groups; however, as I’m sure you’re aware, legally “packing heat” in NYC is about as easy as becoming a White refugee–that is to say, fuggetaboutit!

    • Viv J

      Yes, I was about to post something similar. If someone were to shoot me with a pellet gun, I would shoot back, rather than asking why.

      • Sheik Yerbouti

        Of course, it sounds sort of like a silencer. Shoot back immediately.

    • MekongDelta69

      Only the ‘elites’ and black and brown gangsta thugs can get CCWs in NYC.

    • Alexandra1973

      I live in a 97% White town and if I want something in the middle of the night while my son’s with his dad, I don’t walk the block. I drive up to Stop ‘n Go for a Sierra Mist or Mountain Dew. There are a few blacks around here, but there’s no way I’m going to give any of them an opportunity.

  • MekongDelta69

    The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating.”

    Oh yeah – Sure they are. Under DeBlackio’s reign, NO black people will ever be ‘investigated.’

    • CourtneyfromAlabama

      I am showing my Southern ignorance here, but I would have guessed that the Northern end of Central Park is the most dangerous…..being up against Harlem and all.

      • John R

        No ignorance at all. But dangerous is relative. My guess is that if she were up near Harlem, she wouldn’t even be ALIVE right now.

        • ATBOTL

          Harlem is gentrified and full of white yuppies now. Most of the blacks in NYC are from the Caribbean and they commit way less crime and are much better behaved all around than American blacks.

          • kikz2

            our homegrown ones definitely give all a bad rep…..even other Africans don’t like them…..

          • saxonsun

            Yes, lots of whites in Harlem now and very good to see but I’d still avoid the north end of Central Park.

      • NoMosqueHere

        New York City, and Manhattan in particular are beautiful, romantic places. But the infestation of black thugs ruins it.

        • Garrett Brown

          How are Negroes even living in Manhattan? I thought it was literally built as a safe haven against Negroes in the city. It’s the definition of a white flight city.

          • CourtneyfromAlabama

            When I visited NYC, I got the impression that the Northeastern parts of Manhattan were more run down than the other areas, and full of projects. But even those parts were much safer than the Bronx, parts of Brooklyn, and Harlem.

          • Garrett Brown

            I’ll keep you safe Courtney.

    • Well, technically I’m sure they didn’t lie, the esteemed “Hate Crimes Task Force! ™” is investigating. It’s just that it’s her they’re investigating, to figure out what this evil racist white lady did to instigate this retaliatory attack against her.

      They already KNOW she’s a racist, because she’s white. And the fact that She actually pointed out her attackers were BLACK… well, quite clearly she’s a member of the KKK.

      With any luck the brave “Hate Crimes Task Force! ™” can bring down her whole racist terror cell before they hurt anyone else.

  • Truthseeker

    This story is disgusting. We always hear these sob stories about how horrible it was for Blacks when they lived in fear of the White man…but look what happens when they no longer fear him.

    I hope I live to see the day when Whites start standing up for their own race again. When the people who gleefully despise us realize that they can’t take out their frustrations on us with impunity anymore.

    • Nonhumans

      Too bad guns are so taboo in libtarded New York. Anywhere that permits ccp or open-carry, getting popped in the back of the head by nonhumans, even by so much as a pellet gun, would be legally considered life-threatening. Legally, you could return in kind. I would without hesitation.

  • Going out alone at midnight in Negrostan is not a good idea.

    • me

      True dat! However, I recall a time when we Whites could go anywhere without being afraid for our lives. We could even leave our homes and cars unlocked….
      Thanks a lot, you globalist/Zionist cartel of demoniac usurpers!

      • Despite the fact that it’s more likely a parable than a retelling of an actual event, I love that $50 lesson. It’s a nice summary of just how simple some of this BS is, when you untie all the convoluted knots made out of liberal lies.

    • kikz2

      ….w/in the last six months my grocerstore near the interstate has turned dark at night. It’s unnerving, like instantly being transported to New Orleans. There I expect it, here in far N. Dallas exoburbs.. not so much. I can’t figure out where they’re coming from? They don’t live around here?! WTF are they coming from? Section 8’s? There’s not that much Section 8 housing advertisted, there are closer stores to the low rent side of town, which is not too terribly black, and what is is very small…….so these numbers don’t hold up, especially in light of high turnover and a culture of “uh…where u stay?”. I carry now, again…..and try not to shop those hours.

    Don’t get near any rocks in Blackimore:

    Blacks don’t fear whites no mo.

    • John R

      True. In Philly, the “flash mobs” only started becoming news when they began to attack upper middle class Whites visiting and living in Center City. (Btw, that is what Philadelphians call the downtown area.)

  • Eddie Lutz

    I guess she wasn’t fat and ugly enough for them?

  • Luca

    Thank you black youths. One more White person has become a race realist.

    • More good news is that the pellet gun wound probably wasn’t very serious. Scalp injuries – I’ve had my share – bleed like crazy and thus look worse than they really are.

      • Luca

        Worse bloody injury I ever had was a cut tongue while working on fishing lures. I thought I would bleed out, Not even direct pressure with an ice cube would slow it down.

        • I use pliers for that, and I always crush the barbs flat with pliers before tying a fly or making a lure. I’d rather a good fish shake the hook and get away than have to wreck a nice fly I tied. My worst tongue injury was not with a fish hook, or even biting it very hard when I slipped on a wet floor and came down on my butt like a sack of cement. Nosir: it was a paper cut from when I licked the flap on a Manila envelope to seal it. A cut on one’s tongue with the thick, stiff paper in a Manila envelope is no fun at all. I swallowed enough blood that it’d have made Dracula happy for quite a while.

          Use a damp cloth to wet the flap of a Manila envelope. Believe me.

          Never had a fish hook there. You have me beat.

          • Luca

            There are many lessons in life. That was one of them, never to be repeated.

  • Douglas Quaid

    I think this is what the elites want, they’ve gotten the blacks all revved up to the point where they are seeing racism and white privilege in their sandwiches. I’ve never met a white person who harbors the type of irrational hatred towards blacks that I’ve seen among blacks towards whites. I’ve long said to my friends who are always talking about how the gov’t that rules us is planning Marshall law, all they have to do is cut off the food stamps and every major US city will be burning by sunrise the next day.

    • Andy

      There was an article on here about some woman who literally thought sandwiches were racist. (“Why not talk about tortillas instead?”)

      • Nonhumans

        It’s that white-privelege bread.

  • CourtneyfromAlabama

    Okay, I think we should all know by now that Central Park just isn’t safe to walk through. In fact, the one time I visited it, I was overwhelmed. I was a typical Southerner in the big city. I was greatly impressed with the massive size of everything, but was also creeped out too by all of it.

    Central Park, to me, just looked scary, even during the day. I had never seen a park that massive before. There were too many places for dangerous people to hide.

    • John R

      Hey, I visited New York a couple times. I was overwhelmed. And I am from Philadelphia! So, yes, I certainly can understand your feeling.

      Anywhere that nonhumans amass is a dangerous place. Even more so since next to no one is allowed to conceal carry.

    • We have “parks” bigger than that in Colorado, but those are called “National Forests”, and blacks are scared of them. Bears and pumas, don’t ya know.

    • Who Me?

      Never been there, and strangely enough, never wanted to even as a teen–young adult. Big cities just don’t do it for me. Living a few years in Los Angeles in my mid-twenties cured any small bit of wanting the city life I might have ever had. I prefer mountain forests, the less people around the better. (Even better, blacks DON’T like being anywhere near the ‘wild areas’.)

  • LHathaway

    It’s great to see this in a news story. How many dozens if not hundreds, nay, thousands of these incidents happen for every one that makes the news, with the victim told to just be quiet? Or even that They are the victims.

    It may have been more accurate for me to have wrote millions, actually.

  • John Smith

    This is difficult to phrase – here goes.

    I do not wish violence on any white people.

    But if this avalanche of interracial crime continues – instead of hard working, tax paying citizens – I wish the victims were sons and daughters of politicians.

    • IstvanIN

      They always seem to get away scot-free, don’t they?

      • I’m all for the Glock19 method
        of tagging the bad actors somebody mentioned
        a little while ago

    • I wish it were the politicians themselves. Reading a news article about Nancy Pelosi and Dianne Feinstein becoming the next Channon Christians, while Charles Schumer stood in for Christopher Newsome would bring joy to my heart. Maybe the Tennessee Department of Corrections could release Lemaricus Davidson & Co. and fly them to Washington D.C. once Congress is back in session.

      • Periapsis

        I’d settle for all of them becoming Quislings, who was executed for helping the Nazis take over Norway.

          • Periapsis

            That was indeed what happened to many a Bolshevik, the monster they created had turned on and destroyed them.

      • Who Me?

        “Reading a news article about Nancy Pelosi and Dianne Feinstein becoming the next Channon Christians, while Charles Schumer stood in for Christopher Newsome”
        I wouldn’t wish that on anyone, not even those three.

  • John R

    Did she say “What’s the matter with you people?”? Geeze. That is so racist. I am surprised that New York doesn’t charge HER with a hate crime. Actually I am kind of glad that she said that. It just goes to show that even in liberal places like New York City, some Whites are losing the fear to utter the dreaded phrase “You people.” That used to be verboten for White people to say.

    • OS-Q

      Ha! just read your comment after posting mine, and that has to be the moment of “dizrespect” that set off the verbal abuse, of course the violent physical abuse was caused by the disrespectful way that a white person walked through a park hoping to not be shot at.

    • Nonhumans

      I would never dignify them by calling them people. A very different term would come to mind, along with a very different reaction.

  • OS-Q

    An obvious hate crime, I mean the perpetrator, Hanna, referred to them as “you people” thus they were only retroactively defending themselves from viscous and privileged racism. Thank heavens that Mayor DiBlasio is helping keep central park safe from non-diverse aggression!

  • Conrad

    Was she hit in the head by a pellet fired from a pellet gun or by the gun itself?
    Also, if it was the projectile, was it a pellet gun, or a BB gun. there’s a big difference.

    • Malgus

      Who knows? The days of accurate reporting are over… just like that WaPo moron who mistook earplugs for “rubber bullets”, then posted a picture of them…

      To the article- just another reason to avoid loitering blacks. Dindoo Nuffins will certainly be there, looking for trouble…

      • Being able to write coherently and accurately, or even know anything at all about the subject matter of an article are no longer requirements for aspiring journalists. The only requirement is proper left-wing credentials.

        If I see the phrase “all of a sudden” in what purports to be a serious news article again, I am going to lose it completely. I suspect some of these reporters have written children’s books, though not on purpose. Thinking a bit, we humans have had a Stone Age, a Bronze Age, an Iron Age, an Age of Enlightenment, an Industrial Age, and an Information Age, but now we are entering the Stupid Age: the Age of Dumb.


    Notice the 180 turn in how this incident is covered versus how anti-white attacks in flyover country are covered by the media.

    Police here didn’t hesitate to call it a hate crime and the media reported all of the racial details in the first reports.

    This is just like stop and frisk and just like the differing responses to police killings of blacks in NYC versus in places like Ferguson MO where no members of the 1% elite live.

  • ViktorNN

    If there was a systematic study of local news reports for racially-motivated violence against whites by blacks, we would see that there is a “mini-wave” of racist retaliation attacks going on in the country right now, thanks to the govt, media, and academia’s whipping up of anti-white hate in the wake of Ferguson.

  • Evette Coutier

    A Glock 19 should have been her response, not why are you doing this to me. Too many whites have become too soft to deal with violent predators. Now we are seeing the costs of weakness.

  • kikz2

    as usual of late, no commentary allowed…. this is going ugly.

  • Garrett Brown

    She’s the idiot that decided to walk in the park in the first place. Until we take our cities back this just plain isn’t safe. Be smart people.

  • Magician

    Five or more blacks attack one random woman with a weapon and makes her bleed

    Very typical of black on white crimes

    Isn’t an attack in the head with an object an attempted murder?

    If this same crime happened to a white gentile hetero gentleman between the age of 20 to 40 the NYPD would still be sitting on their cowardly donut-eating asses….. and invent lame excuses to justify that they are sorry it happened to you but there is nothing they can do

  • The black on white hate crime incident will raise 10 fold and more when
    Wilson is found innocent . . pellet guns today, nitrocellulose tomorrow…

  • Moe

    Go to the original article link & check out the police sketch of one of the perps! Hilarious, can’t make it up!

  • glennm

    the original problem was lack of situational awareness. i live in NY and still i am able to practice it even when there are so many groups of savages around

  • AmericanCitizen

    If you flipped the races, and a group of white kids shot a black woman in the head with a pellet gun there would be a citywide manhunt for the kids. It would be on the cover of the local papers and be a CNN headline.

    However, just another random black-on-white attack, so go on as usual, nothing to see here, move along now.

    • WR_the_realist

      MSNBC won’t say a word about this one.

      • Magician

        [Insert any popular mainstream media here] won’t say anything about this one

  • none of your business

    The NYPD sergeants union wrote a letter to the DNC advising them not to hold their 2016 convention in NYC because of the high crime rate. What the police do not realize is that the demorats applaud black and hispanic crime and not just black on White crime.

  • none of your business

    Upper West Side more or less, Hanna a tribal name. The Whites of NYC voted for De Blackio who got his start as an aide to Dinkins.

  • Korean guy

    You can pick on me for saying this but,

    Saying “It is your fault! You are the one who did something stupid!” to a woman who was hit in the head and bleeding, even if she did nothing wrong at all to anyone else, is not right! No I won’t ever blame the victim in my life.

    We all have times when we have no choice but staying outside until around midnight or even past midnight once in a while. Sometimes, we have to stay outside until late at night because of work, or we are at parties or gatherings where we simply cannot leave or do not want to leave exactly at 10PM. Sleep over in a friend’s house? Haha, how many such close friends do we have in our lives? And are all our close friends always ready to gladly let us sleep over, 365 days a year? I have read about parents who took their daughter to the hospitals around 4AM in the morning because she was sick. Sometimes, we do have to go outside or stay outside around midnight. In downtown Toronto, the cheapest hotel rooms cost $280 per night.

    What else should the woman have done? I do not know the Central Park area very well but I am sure hotels in New York city cost hundreds of dollars per night.

    I feel she could have been more carefully looking at her surroundings while she was walking through the area, but telling a woman who was hit in the head with a weapon to see her own blood, “It is your fault! You are the one who is stupid!” is not right. No it isn’t. The ones who truly did something wrong, are the ones who hit her.

  • Paleoconn

    ‘you people’?! She’s clearly racist. /sarc

    I wonder if she’s Jewish. The odds of her being an Obamaniac is high. At the risk of repeating myself, if this is to happen to somebody, might as well be a lib.

  • Hopefully she’ll be all right. On the bright side, she’s unlikely to have and raise any black children for absentee black fathers.

  • The propaganda machine has a direction, where it’s going exactly I cannot say. . what I can say, is that it does not favor the white race ..
