Man Living in Fear After He Was Beaten and Robbed Outside Store

Peggy Gallek, Fox 8 (Cleveland), February 3, 2015

A man was attacked and robbed outside a grocery store and it was caught on camera. Investigators said it was a hate crime.


The victim, Thomas McGill, 51, was punched, knocked to the ground, and kicked in the face and head, before one of the suspects reached inside his pocket and took his money.


McGill said he went to the store at 10 p.m. and when he was trying to pay for his items, one suspect started to take his money. He said he didn’t want to cause trouble so he kept his mouth shut, but then things got worse.

“I just went outside the store and next thing I know I was in Charity Hospital,” McGill said.

Police Union President Steve Loomis, who worked on the case, said the attack was very brutal and he believes money was not the main motivation behind the attack.

“In this case, it was completely racially motivated,” Loomis said. “And what are you going to get out of the guy, just beat him up to beat him up or possibly kill him in the parking lot, for what?”

The I-Team has learned that three of the men, Ronald Mango Jr., Montez Williams, and Steafon Hudson, have been indicted on several charges including aggravated robbery, felonious assault, and ethnic intimidation.

  • Finally, for once, it wasn’t just a “robbery gone wrong.”

      >>Finally, for once, it wasn’t just a “robbery gone wrong.” Right, obviously implying: “Ach! If robbery victims could only execute better on their side of the table, we’d have robberies gone right and everything would be fine.”

      • cherrie greenbaum123

        Not a robbery gone wrong, a disenfranchised group of youf who were acting out from the suffering turmoil caused by the terrubul legsee ob da slaybaree.

  • Brian Williams – who was nearby – chased the suspects away and has been credited with heroically saving the victim’s life.

    • Brian Williams lies about combat, and may well get fired.

      Hillary Clinton lies about combat, and is better than even money odds to be the next President.

      • cherrie greenbaum123

        At this point what difference does it make??!!!

    • MekongDelta69

      He couldn’t have.

      He was getting lit up by an RPG at the time – and hitting 80 HR – and sleeping with 100 super models – and splitting the atom – and inventing the wheel – and, and, and…

      He’s a busy man, you know…

  • MekongDelta69

    For every story that AmRen does publish, there are ten more like this, which Amren doesn’t have room to publish.

    One difference I see is that finally a Police Union President did mention it was racially motivated.

    • JohnEngelman

      This stuff happens every day and night, but it never becomes national news. If a black guy is beaten up by whites, someone on the moon with a satellite antenna would learn about it.

    • Zimriel

      Auster and I think even Kersey admitted that they don’t have space either. In Auster’s case he told his readers *not* to send him links, because they were affecting his health.

    • pwnful truth

      No, there are hundreds or perhaps thousands. Every white man who has been blessed enough to live around blacks has learned this the hard way. Cell phones have made things much safer today for motorists. In the 1990s where I lived in N.C. it was a common news story that some poor honky suffered a car breakdown in the wrong place and got killed by mobs of blacks, literally blackhawk down style.

      • Cheri Rodriguez

        At the same time, lots of Whites have been assaulted and murdered by blacks for their cell phones. A mob (or even a trio of sucker-punching blacks) can usually take out the average unarmed White before they’re able to dial 911.

      • Albert

        I’m glad so many people have these handy little devices to fill you-tube with evidence of black on white animosity that the left would rather people not know.

    • ElComadreja

      Probably closer to a hundred more.

    “when he was trying to pay for his items, one suspect started to take his money. He said he didn’t want to cause trouble so he kept his mouth shut”

    WTF, didn’t want to cause trouble?? The savages were immediately emboldened by this guy’s complacency while be robbed. A can of mace or taser or tactical pen, fist to the throat do ANYTHING but keep your mouth shut when engaged by blacks.

    Hopefully while he convalescing he can grow a pair.

    • archer

      Exactly. If you have to pick something up to hit them with, do it.

    • Nonhumans

      My thoughts exactly!! Make another Earl of Watermelon Juice or St. Sandwich out of them!!

  • Conrad

    Isn’t it odd how so many people are afraid AFTER they get a beating.

    • Good point. That’s because whites have been conditioned for decades to view blacks as innocent little doves who desire racial reconciliation just as badly as whites.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        Racial reconciliation… as the myth goes. It was all about taking from the white man, that’s all. Show up in the name of black, take in the name of black. Take the white mans schools, neighborhoods, everything…then sit around and celebrate because the white man’s territory was conquered. Why do they want whites around after the conquest? Taking his civilization and the benefits it afforded was the whole point, wasn’t it?

        • cherrie greenbaum123

          When they get white’s civilization they set about destroying it, brick by brick.

          • Samuel Hathaway

            Yep, and the tactics work lovely. Show up with a big crowd, remind everyone of the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow, make threats of sit-ins, marches, protests and humiliation. The tactic works to perfection which is why they do it. They’re high-fiving it, snookering the white man yet again, planning the next target … D’Andreus is phoning up LeShawn telling how the feral Negro crowd got its way.. now it’s time to use those tactics else where to get more free stuff.
            However, the media says it’s really all about fairness, inclusion, and RECONCILIATION.

          • ElComadreja

            Whites create, Asians imitate, blacks and Hispanics desecrate.

  • Joe Mama

    This dummy should know in this day and age you don’t walk around unarmed. Ohio is a shall-issue state. There’s no excuse not to defend yourself.

    • Tarczan

      He was a dummy for walking around at night on Woodland Ave. That is deepest, darkest, Africa.

      • DiversityIsDeath

        Yeah, he was on safari and didn’t even know it.

  • Anglokraut

    Oh, Cleveland–how much lower can you go? At least when I lived there, the Negroes attacked other Negroes because the Whites left in the 1970s.

    • ElComadreja

      They attack each other regardless.

  • I hope this brutal incident caused Thomas McGill to have a ‘diversity’ awakening. I hate to see those of our own race savagely victimized by the darlings of ‘diversity,’ but if this is what it takes, so be it.

    • LHathaway

      No doubt he was well awake even before this.

  • superlloyd

    At least the police recognised it for what it was for once.

  • I hate to say it, but this guy is typical of whites who naively walk around woefully ignorant of diversity’s threat. They are sheep, victims waiting for negro predators to violate them.

    When this white man walked into the convenience store, these blacks knew immediately that they were looking at a white victim. That’s why they were so bold in taking money from him inside the store. But they weren’t solely interested in his money, they wanted something else – namely, an opportunity to express their hatred of the white man and they proceeded to do that very thing when he walked out of the store.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      He was probably the only white in the store, too. Put three blacks in a store full of about 40 whites and this probably would have never happened.

    • Yancy Derringer

      Obama talked about the Ferguson riots on TV. He said he understood blacks’ anger. He put on a disgusted expression to signal that he was angry at whites too, without having to actually say it. “Black Lives Matter” signs are meant to say that whites hate blacks. Signs like that get blacks angry at whites, and when blacks get angry at whites, blacks deserve to exact their revenge just like Trayvon and Michael were murdered in cold blood. Because Obama, and Holder, abd Sharpton, and everybody on the news said they understand it, that it’s okay.

  • Samuel Hathaway

    Never, never trust any black who hints of needing help or money in public.. or private for that matter. Been approached several times, but just blow by without a word. However, in this case, the man should at least raised his voice to call attention to the incident.

    Never offer to reach the top shelf to get anything down for a negro, especially if elderly. Young blacks will quickly reach into the pocket while your hand is up to steal a wallet.

    • Another tactic is for blacks to cut the rear trouser pocket(s) with a razor blade.
      The razor cuts silently and with ease.

      It works well if a victim is not aware of his surroundings.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        I hate to feel that making a scene is necessary, but one day while in the grocery store, being the only one on the isle I was on, heard a voice say, “Hey you wanna buy some foodstamps”? It was a beastly black guy about 25 to 30 yrs. old. I yelled out, “did you know that selling foodstamps is ILLEGAL??!!

        That was the end of that one. He fled from the store.

    • Cheri Rodriguez

      No, if they approach you for money you have to say something and put them on the defensive to make it clear that White people aren’t punks who scurry off when challenged. Whenever they ask me for cash, I say–“Where’s that $50 bucks I gave you last week?” And with the look of confusion on their face I continue: “Okay, take off those sneakers / that jacket / ring / gold chain and we’ll call it even.” If / when they protest, I finish up with–“Look, bitch. The next time I see you, you better have my $50 dollars…with interest!” The last time this happened, it was two teens (one black, one Hispanic) who approached me outside an OTB. I never even got my whole spiel out. After the “Where’s that $50 bucks I gave you last week?” they looked at each other for a moment and then ran away.

    “Man Living in Fear After He Was Beaten and Robbed…”

    He should have been living in fear and constant vigilance before he got beaten and robbed, considering where he lives and shops.

    After being mugged several times in a few weeks by blacks I had a mild case of post traumatic stress disorder. That was when I discovered The Color of Crime, and this website.

      • JohnEngelman

        Just because I have been mugged by blacks does not mean that I am in favor of tax cuts for the rich. That is all the Republican Party really cares about.

        • Anglokraut

          The Republican Party, and the conservative political viewpoint, are not the same thing.

          • JohnEngelman

            There are different varieties of conservatism.

            There are conservative aspects to my thinking. I am pessimistic about human nature and human potential. I am skeptical of rapid social, economic, and political changes. I think there is often wisdom in tradition.

            Nevertheless, mine is a conservatism that is without concern for the well being of the rich.

        • W.N. First

          You were mugged by blacks, that reality sank in.

          Send 70, 80, 90% of your hard work i.e. income to the IRS then get back to us on that reality.

          • JohnEngelman

            During the 1950’s the top tax rate never got below 91%. For most Americans those were good years economically. The national debt was paid down as a percentage of the gross domestic product. Most Americans got pay raises every year that beat inflation.

          • W.N. First

            Yep, that’s all true, but there is no logical connection (reality) between the American prosperity of the 1950’s caused by the destruction of the European industrial capacity ( please recall WWII) and confiscatory taxation.

            If you wish to believe that prosperity was or could be achieved through near total confiscation of private wealth well it’s still a semi free country.

          • JohnEngelman

            Most Americans benefit when the rich are heavily taxes.

          • W.N. First

            If that were logical, the $16 trillion plus we’ve spent on the war on poverty would have…. well eliminated poverty.

            Instead we have just taxed and spent our way from a 19% poverty rate to a 14-15% poverty rate in the last 50 years.

            And coincidentally added a bit over 16 trillion dollars to the national debt.

            However, aside from the intellectually vacuous thought that confiscating more from the rich benefits “most Americans” it is morally vacuous to take from one party by force (of tax law) for the alleged benefit of another.

    And people wonder why gun laws are being relaxed and more people are carrying. These thugs are like predatory animals, going after the weak and infirmed. Every so often, however, they grab a tiger by the tail. As the old saying goes, when you do that you’d better have a plan to deal with its teeth.

    • Cheri Rodriguez

      Relaxed? More like tightened in a lot of places (see New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut). The politicians need Whites disarmed and their voting base (non-Whites) alive.

  • John Barleycorn

    Walk in fear or arm yourself and become a defender of your rights

  • A Freespeechzone

    Until more potential victims realize that they MUST be prepared to defend themselves from criminals—and if necessary, kill them in self defense; this kind of brutal, unprovoked behavior will only escalate.

    Dead criminals killed in self defense is a start…

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Investigators said it was a hate crime

    Has Peggy Gallek been fired yet?

    She will be.

    There’s only one solution to these attacks:

    Be not afraid of any man

    No matter what his size

    If ever in fear, just call on me

    And I will equalize

  • evilsandmich

    Let’s see here Woodland Ave goes from East 55th (yuck) to MLK Dr (speaks for itself); so yeah any white guy in that neighborhood walking around that neighborhood after dark is pretty clueless, especially if you’re unarmed.

  • tickyul

    This will NEVER end, it will just get worse………….Whites have totally given up on any sort of hard push-back towards this sort of barbarity.

  • LHathaway

    Just giving them your money, in some cases, is not enough. But you knew that already.

  • WoodyBBad

    This may be the first time that I have seen a black-on-white beating being charged as a hate crime. Almost makes me feel like we got back our seat at the table.

      I believe that’s illegal. All those n words have to do is sign a complaint and Officer Friendly will come and take your weapon, and you’ll have the devil to pay b4 they give it back.

    “He said he didn’t want to cause trouble so he kept his mouth shut, but then things got worse.” Pathetic.

    Never even tried to hit back.

      The video seems to show what appears to be two separate attacks by multiple attackers from different angles, based on how the video was edited for the story. I have had some training on dealing with this type of attack, but without a decent weapon of some type, would possibly make things worse if I managed to hurt one or two of them. I think he had three realistic options: Not going there in the first place, finding some means of escape, or shooting every last one of those SOBs. Hand to hand against a mob is a worst case scenario. With that said, I would have probably fought back out of instinct. I would have stayed inside the store, called 911, and fought inside if I had to. If I was the victim, there are other things I might do in the aftermath that I don’t want to talk about publicly, even under an alias.

  • Lord Sandwich

    I saw this report on TV the morning of Feb 3rd. It upset me for the entire day. This just happens over and over as blacks shriek about victimhood whenever one of them dies in the act of committing an assault.
    It seems that some of the comments below blame the victim for not being aware that he was in a no go zone for whites, which he was. We will never hear any more about the prosecution of the perps, and I bet they do little to no time in prison for this assault.
    My work takes me all over the city of Cleveland and sometimes into all black neighborhoods, (Kinsman, Harvard-Lee, Buckeye Blvd.) Though I live in the suburbs, sometimes I have to go there to earn a living.
    I feel bad for the victim. He’s probably too poor to move to a better neighborhood. Lots of whites live in Cleveland surrounded by an overwhelming black majority. If he had a handgun and managed to shoot his way out of there, he would probably be criticized for going armed into a place where one can expect to be harassed by blacks. In hindsight, he should have gone back into the store at the first sign of trouble and called 911.
