The victim is identified as Joseph Keith Richard [Ed: he’s white, according to Breitbart] of Marble Falls. Richard was three days shy of his 57th birthday when he was killed late last Thursday night.

A report from San Antonio police stated that witnesses noticed Fobbs pacing angrily, and going in and out of the building in the 300 block of Hoefgen Street.

They told police that Fobbs suddenly launched an unprovoked attack on Richard, who was sitting on a bench outside the station’s waiting room, the report stated.

Witnesses said Fobbs repeatedly hit Richard with his fists, leaving him bloodied.


Witnesses told police after the attack,  Fobbs calmly walked into a restroom and changed his bloody shirt.

Officers arrived later and arrested him.

Meanwhile, Richard died of his injuries at the scene.

In the report, an officer said Fobbs “did not appear to be in a normal state of mind.”


Fobbs is facing a murder charge. {snip}

[Editor’s Note: According to CBS, Fobbs paused during the beating to say “I feel like killing someone.”]

    Hypothetically speaking of course, if I were to state that I wish these types of atrocities happened to politicians and their family members…or the filthy anti-white media creatures and their family members…instead of innocent bystanders minding their own business, the moderator would probably censor my comment.

    So I’ll just state that my heart aches for this unfortunate man and his family members who will always be haunted by this.

    • Whitetrashgang

      Yes why don’t people go after the people that have harmed them, not people they don’t even know.

      • Juggernaut3000

        Because for brainwashed fools like Fobbs, he is going after the people who he thinks harmed him: the entire white race.

        He’s been inundated with a “hate whitey” message from birth.

      • John Smith

        Because it takes investigative work to locate them and their families, then planning to insure you have them all in one place or can pick them off quickly before the others are warned. It’s requires work and patience. Some people are just lazy.

        • Grantland

          Think global, act local.

  • shatwood

    What? How is this even possible? I’ve been told by MSNBC and other networks that unarmed men like Fobbs pose no physical threat to anyone.

    • MBlanc46

      He probably even had his hands up.

    • JackKrak

      That’s right. In fact, the good and fair people at MSNBC are probably at work right now on a story to tell us about how, in fact, Mr. Fobbs was frustrated at his lack of opportunity in a white society run by the Klan and rife with institutional racism and only “lashed out” after being called The Word That Must Not Be Said by Mr. Richard. While it’s true that no one else heard it and security camera footage shows no such thing, we must take Mr. Fobbs at his word because Ferguson, Missouri.

    • John R

      …..and what if this victim had had a gun and used it? “Police have arrested a 57 year old white man who shot an unarmed black man in an incident that is believed to be racially motivated. We are here interviewing the victim’s mother…”

      • Ralph Monzo

        THIS JUST IN: San Antonio, Texas~ Thousands of angry white demonstrators are burning and looting an area of downtown San Antonio, in response to the beating death of a 57 year old white man by a 350 lb. black man… Film at 11:00…

  • MekongDelta69

    In the report, an officer said Fobbs ‘did not appear to be in a normal state of mind.’

    When are blacks EVER in a ‘normal state of mind’?

    • Whitetrashgang

      Well maybe 50,000 years ago. Give or take a week.

      • Juggernaut3000

        Not even then.

    • Valmet

      Only when they are dead!

    • ElComadreja

      Murderous rage is a normal state of mind for them.

  • Guest

    I am sure that was not the journey Mr. Richard was expecting.

    I am quite sure that was not the journey Mr. Richard was expecting.

    Did a walk thru of the area about a week ago. It`s in St. Paul Square kinda on the wrong side of the free way from downtown a block away. On a related note, I own a small commerical building roughly two miles South of there. Its across from a Motel and their are more Pimp Daddys than you can shake a stick at. I have to go down there twice a week and stand on the side walk with my hand on a gun. One guy is extremely large, hostile and agitated. He paces up and down in front of the fat food joint while I glare at him from my side of the street. He hasnt tried to cross, yet… It`s so Wild West, I displayed a handgun about a half a dozen times in broad daylight. No body care!! That was more scary than anything… Only one lady saw me and shrieiked in her car. I smiled and gave her a “What`s a guy to do?!?” look…

    • Tim

      P.S. I used to live on Hoefgen. Right across from Ray`s tortillas. As I was walking under said underpass years ago, a “guy” accosted me saying, “Come here, @#$%!!” For the first time in my life, I didn`t. It was almost amusing to see the look of frustration on the guys face. It was liberating… But thinking back I didn`t have the back up in my pocket I do now…

    • I sometimes go down to the barrio Goodwill on West Commerce. Always a lot of junk going on there, fights and angry confrontations. I noticed that the police opened a substation in the shopping center a few steps from the Goodwill. That’s diversity for you.

      • Tim

        My buddy calls the West Commerce over pass to the West side right past Mi Tierra, “A Bridge Too Far”… LOL

  • MindHead99

    The liberals want to stop the police from preventing Black Savages in their terrorizing of Whites. I imagine these type of events will become more frequent until the breaking point of an all out race war. Power needs to be decentralized from the Feds to local communities so these problems can be eliminated as needed. The Feds grabbing all power and expanding their reach is the root of the problem.

  • Luca

    “Officers arrived later and arrested him.” When seconds count, the police are minutes away. Since Mr. Richards lived in a virtual jungle he or a bystander should have been packing some instant law enforcement of their own.

  • JohnEngelman

    If I had a son he would not look like Michael Joseph Fobbs.

  • What, no orchestrated hysteria on the part of the media?

  • This murder happened a couple of months ago, as you can see by the date on the article, July 8.

    I recall it well. It was a story that no one in San Antonio brought race into. In fact, if you try to bring race into a story like this one, around here you’re demonized as a fool, a racist, etc. The local press had its spin: mental illness, not race. Excuses. Always excuses. And blacks are only 5 percent of the population.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    I feel like killing someone.

    I believe CBS edited the remark, most likely Fobbs said “I feel like killing someone White.”

    The witness described the victim’s face as ‘unrecognizable as a human face.’

    None of what happened makes sense to Jessie Blackwell, a longtime neighbor of Fobbs:

    No trouble whatsoever out of this kid. He was a good kid, I saw him the week before last and he was fine. But I haven’t seen any indication of him snapping like that.

    Like Trayvon and Michael Brown, one more unarmed “gentle giant” finds himself wrongly accused by a racist, White-power system.

    A man was beaten to death in front of a crowd of people at an Amtrak Station Thursday.

    And no one came to his aid. I cannot imagine myself or any other member of my family standing around watching a large black beat a man to death. This is the part that really bothers me the most….

    ….and a perfect example of the new, fundamentally changed America that we keep hearing about.

    No, there wasn’t a hate crime here because hate crime laws only pertain to anything a White says or does.

    And obama wonders why we Whites cling to our guns?

    Go back to work, Whitey, pay your taxes and sign your sons up for the latest overseas war. Your country needs you to pay for its welfare system and for use as cannon fodder in its useless overseas wars.

    Amtrak security arrived on scene ‘within a minute or two’ of the incident start.

    What’s that old expression about when seconds count, cops….

    See you on the firing range.

    • Too bad San Antonio’s finest didn’t ventilate this one.

      • Dale McNamee

        And face what Officer Darren Wilson is facing ? It’s not worth the effort…

  • One must wonder about the mindset involved here. “Let’s see. I’m unemployed, but instead of heading into San Antonio – rated by Forbes last year as the 9th best market for job growth – to look for work, I think I’ll just hang out at the train station and beat a complete stranger to death.”

    • bilderbuster

      Anything to avoid working.

  • willbest

    I feel like killing people sometimes. Its called impulse control.

    • Impulse control = white privilege.

      There are two people I feel like killing. One of them is so full of cancer that even his tumors have suspicious growths, and the other is eight years into a life sentence for child-molestation, so there’s no temptation on my part at all in either case.

  • Ella

    I did not know that San Antonio’s Amtrak station is THIS dangerous. I think Amtrak arrives late around 11PM, which discourages tourists like me to take the train for adventure. There are sooooo many US cities not to travel anymore with family.

    • I’m suprised the station didn’t have armed security close at hand. In downtown Denver, the combined train/city bus station has them, and so does the Greyhound terminal seven blocks away. The convenience and efficiency of mass-transit are defeated if violent predators are allowed to loiter at transit centers, making people afraid to use them.

      • sbuffalonative

        Policing is a hate crime.

        • Spikeygrrl

          Especially when it’s “militarized.”
          [Translation: ADEQUATE to the threats at hand.]

          • Jack Burton

            When the community is ghettoized and resembles something out of West Africa, whites need to militarize.

    • Tim

      I think you`re right. My brother once asked me to meet the train to pick up his kid and it was about that hour. It was pretty deserted also…

    • Juggernaut3000

      I “railroaded” into Oakland not too long ago on Amtrak and was told more than once, unsolicited, on the way there NOT to leave the station unless I could see a cab or some other form of ground transportation, then to RUN as fast as possible out of the train station.

      I’ll never go through there again.

    • anony

      That’s one of the tragedies of this African occupation of our once great nation. They have deprived us of some of the wonderful pleasures of life, for example, a late night stroll through our beautiful cities.

      It’s easy to forget how wonderful it used to be when we lived in a safe country. Now we have to be on guard everywhere and always.

      Separation is the only answer.

  • Paleoconn

    Spoiler alert if you intend to watcha Breaking Bad.

    You all see the scene where Walter pays the Aryans to waste a bunch of guys in various prisons? Wouldn’t it be nice…

  • fatbaby

    Sweet,sweet diversity.
    Another victim of the white police officer who assassinated the Gentle Giant.
    Blacks are toxic.

  • ViktorNN

    Where do white people get the idea that black people are dangerous and that it’s a good idea to try and avoid them?

    • bilderbuster

      From their racist White parents according to Oprah.

  • Chris Granzow XI

    San Antonio, Tx:

    Even when whites only make-up a quarter of the population, they still manage to hunt them down and kill them.

    • Tim

      I was gonna say I like the numbers better than a reverse of 6 and 63, but then noticed I`m seeing more and more Black folks on the river. Noticeably more… Could it be because we have a new Black interim mayor and words got out its the place to be?!? In the tough parts of town Chicanos will tolerate that less than Whitey does, I guarentee.

      • Chris Granzow XI

        Hopefully not. It seems like anytime blacks go someplace where they’re the only black person around, they immediately spread the word. There was even a black bar shooting a couple months back in 83% white (11% asian, 1% black) Wausau, WI. It’s like they deliberately moved to northern Wisconsin from Chicago just because white people were there. That’s one of the things I like about hispanics though: they don’t put up with black people’s b.s. Out in Compton they’re even driving all of the blacks out of south-central because they’re tired of dealing with their crap 24/7. It’s kind of funny too, given the fact blacks thought Mexicans would side with them or something. Mexicans will even say that Compton stands for “City Of Mexicans Pullin’ Triggers On N**gers” and use the abbreviation “N.K”. (N**ger killers) as part of their gang’s name and motto.

  • I heard from a reliable source that the evil 57 year old racist didn’t offer his seat to the fine young yoof, who was actually just on his way from picking up some cigarillos, grape drank, and skittles from the local bodega. (He forgot his wallet, so he gave the cashier an IOU with his fist)

    The impolite nature of the evil old racist triggered poor Mr. Fobbs’ latent PTSD (caused by “genetic raycissm”, a terrible side effect of his great great great great great… well you get the idea, grandfather’s struggle against the oppression of slavery) causing him to lash out in fear for his freedom against the white bigot.

    (In all seriousness, rest in peace, Mr. Richard. I hope that somehow it was quick and painless)

  • HE2

    Has this dead eyed perp accused the deceased of hurling a racist epithet his way yet?
    I am sure that is what happened. sarc/
    The killer was purportedly unarmed, , yet, once again, a large black man [whom I am sure was another “gentle giant”] managed to beat his victim to death with bare hands. Had the victim, in the course of being beaten, shot this black assailant, it would have evolved as yet another Trayvon, Brown incident with the usual consequences.
    Fists and feet are lethal weapons. Got it?

    • “Fists and feet are lethal weapons.”

      Especially when used by a powerfully-built young guy who might wasted on street drugs.

      • Jack Burton

        Successive concussive blows can kill someone, doesn’t matter what instrument is used.

        Evolutionary studies have already shown that our hands and thumb evolved specifically to make a fist to strike. So no adult male is truly unarmed.

      • Juggernaut3000

        In some cases, all it takes is one blow from an “unarmed” black. It’s happened several times to whites who have been victims of the knock-out “game.”

      • HE2

        Yep, Michael, tis true. As one who has been assaulted from behind and knocked unconscious by a black assailant, I can attest to their power. This occurred while I was doing a physical assessment of the attacker’s brother, the attacker had somehow managed to breach our overworked security.
        Happened again, same scenario, that time a latino patient’s sister as assailant. Not knocked unconscious, but experienced tinnitus in that ear for months. These animals will even attack someone who is in place to help.
        Cops, EMTs, and firemen who must enter a Bay Area black n’hood are fired upon for no reason other than the character, not the color of brown and blackness.

  • John R

    Did not appear to be in a normal state of mind? If only that were the case. No, quite the contrary, for a person of African racial stock, the attack showed his state of mind was perfectly normal for him! On a side note, and please, don’t take this wrong: It shows that all Whites-even if they don’t carry a weapon, need to be able to defend themselves physically. Never mind just sitting at your desks, before or after work, pushups, pull ups, get in shape! Learn some fighting skills! Trust me, the blacks do! Just some advice, and no disrespect to this victim and my condolences to his grieving family. R.I.P.

    • Jack Burton

      Surprised they didn’t find him at the local KFC gettin’ his grub on.

      Mark Fuhrman said that during his time as a detective, he would often find the psychopathic murderer who had just slaughtered someone, calmly at the KFC eating fried chicken like nothing had happened. The liberal media of course was not concerned about the murder or the psychopathic behavior, but rather with Fuhrman’s “racist” description.

  • Next in the news, we will be told that Fobbs is a witless retard, and that it would be unfair to punish him, in 3… 2… 1…

    • Jack Burton

      Hmm, yeah, the NAACP didn’t see the legal use of that when they demanded that the retarded category be reduced from <85. Half of the black population could have used that as a legal defense.

  • The older I get the more serious I am about a concealed permit. Went to the Bay Area the other day, and just to find a conservative non diversified radio station was a chore in itself ..

    • Tim

      Alamodome in the background. I remember the first concert. It was Paul Mc Cartney. There is a Lone Star Ice House I used to frequent about 200 years past the stadium. You have to go past it to get going North on the freeway. I told the clerk, “Maybe Paul will get thirsty and need some chips too!!” And she said, “You really think so?!?” And I said, “@#$% no…”

  • LHathaway

    Don’t trust anyone under 30. Don’t really trust anyone under 40.They themselves should have sense enough to understand their limitations.

    • Jack Burton

      Never trust giant, black Ewoks, of any age.

      • LHathaway

        ‘Ewoks’? In the book ‘The Time Machine’ they were named ‘Morlocks’. This may not have actually been racial (although they do have dark skin, I believe). ‘Morlocks’ may have been just working-class types projected into the future. In a similar way the film ‘Idiocracy’ examines our possible future. .

        • Jack Burton

          No, you got it all wrong.

          Why would a cave-dwelling species that never sees the light of day have dark pigmentation? That makes no sense. Morlocks were albino cannibals with weak eyesight. One of the defenses used against them by the protagonist was fire, because the light blinded them.

          • Grantland

            Morlocks burned the world with nuclear fire while they skulked in their labyrinths. The radiation lasted longer than they had expected.

  • Jack Burton

    Wait a minute, he was unarmed, the liberal media keep saying that means he should be unable to kill someone.

  • Jack Burton

    This was a related story, you can’t make this stuff up:

    “Miss. woman gets life in silicone buttocks injection case

    Mississippi woman Tracy Lynn Garner was convicted of killing Georgia woman Karima Gordon via illicit cosmetic procedure”

  • OhWow

    No national media outcry here.

    Black man kills white man = justified…because…slavery I guess?

    White man kills black man = never justified…because…he’s an innocent baby.

  • Michigan man who shot Renisha McBride on porch gets 17-32 years
    from the LA Times
    A man who shot and killed Renisha McBride while she was knocking on his
    door just before dawn in a Detroit suburb was sentenced to 17 to 32
    years in prison after an emotional hearing that had both the defense
    attorney and a judge in tears as emotional family members looked on.

    Theodore Wafer, 55, who was convicted last month of second-degree
    murder for shooting 19-year-old Renisha McBride in the face, read a
    short apology.

    “To the parents, family and friends of Renisha McBride, I apologize
    from the bottom of my heart and I am truly sorry for your loss. I can
    only hope and pray,” he said tearing up, “that somehow you can forgive

    Judge Dana M. Hathaway then sentenced Wafer to 15 to 30 years in prison, plus two consecutive years for the gun crime.

    I found this article on a newsite called “Democratic Underground”. Following the article are many comments from apparently white Domocrats. They are uninamous in their cry for vengance against this white gun user. The article states that Wafer’s community has increasing levels of crime and many homeowners are afraid. The Democrats seem to not take this into consideration and see this as a chance to put away a WASP gun owner for the rest of his life just as AmReners want Fobbs put away. They also think this will serve as a warning to deter crazy neo-cons, as they refer to us all, from buying guns.

    Thus perhaps everyone here should resist the impulse to buy a gun and just get a large wooden stick instead.

  • yes, that’s correct. You should check out Democratic Underground. Since you’re 30 you’re enlighted, having the benefits of diversity-enriched education. You know better than to buy a gun {unlike the many old, white, evil, unredeemable, raciss here} and shall just get a large wooden stick to defend yourself & your family with, particularly when police presence diminishes due to our failing dollar.
