Video Shows Attacker Chasing After Victim in Allegedly Racially Motivated Stabbings

Melissa Pamer et al., KTLA 5, February 2, 2015

A portion of one of two stabbings that Covina police said were racially motivated was shown in surveillance video released Monday.

Both stabbings occurred about 7:30 p.m. Saturday at a shopping center in the 100 block of North Azusa Avenue, where a Latino man stabbed two black men who were not associated with one another, according to police.

A 19-year-old La Puente man, Louis Vasquez, described by police as an “admitted gang member,” was taken into custody in the stabbings.

Vasquez allegedly stabbed an 18-year-old who was working at the center, collecting shopping carts. That victim ran into the store where he worked to get help, and the attacker continued on, stabbing the second man, police said.

Vasquez yelled a racial epithet while chasing after one victim in one of the assaults, Covina Police Department Sgt. Gregg Peterson said.

“Based on the fact (that) the racial slur was said, it’s our belief it was hate-motivated,” Peterson said.

The video showed the second victim, a 27-year-old, walking in front of a store with the attacker chasing after him, apparently holding a weapon. The victim tripped as he ran and the attacker jumped on top of him, slashing at him with a “large kitchen knife,” Peterson said.


He was booked on suspicion of attempted murder with a gang enhancement and committing a hate crime, Peterson said.

  • Funny, I rarely hear or read of black on Hispanic hate crimes. It’s almost as if the Hispanics have blacks cowered.

    • LACountyRedneck

      Whites need to acquire that reputation.

      • Bartek

        Whites used to have that reputation, you can thank the US government and a seeming irrational submissiveness to authority for destroying that.

        • A middle-aged white guy with a wife and kid deciding he has better things to do than go to prison with gang-members and druggies isn’t exactly making a mistake. I’ve been there, and don’t recommend it.

          • Uninvited Guest

            When enough of us have nothing left to lose it will get ugly for everyone.

          • Cid Campeador

            I agree. Whites could intimidate Blacks just by defending themselves from attack by either maiming or killing them.
            Whites shouldn’t ape the behavior of the Mau Mau by engaging in retaliatory thuggery. Let them make the first move and then dispatch them to Hell.

    • Speedy Steve

      Vasquez look like one of them White Hispanics.

      • BloodofAlbion75

        Not to me he doesn’t.He looks like exactly what he is: a worthless mestizo!

        • Speedy Steve

          He’d have to be White because these are racially motivated stabbings.

      • Irish

        Yeah , I presume your jesting with that..I live here in South Florida , and on countless occasions I’ve had people speak to me in Spanish assuming I was Cuban Or Argentinean..That dude had a lot of Amerindian in him..My wife (Who’s also Irish by ethnicity) use to insist she could always tell Latin Americans & Northern Europeans apart. So I on occasion will bring up a picture of someone and ask her , White or not..The last time I showed her Bertie Ahern, who she insisted was not white (He’s the 100% Irish Prime Minister of said country). She doesn’t like that game any more.

        • Speedy Steve

          Not exactly: White Hispanic shows up quite frequently on FBI wanted posters at my local post office.

          • Irish

            I’ve seen “Hispanics” (A word that quite literally means nothing) that I would easily place in the larger Rubicon of White folk. Perhaps not mostly of Northern European ethnicity, but certainly of Europe…George Zimmerman , and apparently this low life have been described as White-Hispanics..Having met loads of South American ethnic Italians, Germans, Basque & Castilians, lots of Jews, I know better..In most of the States “Hispanic” means Mexican, or even more Meso-American (as a rule) Central American..Living in the “Capital of Latin America” that is South Florida changes your perspective.

          • Speedy Steve

            Sometimes I think the authorities should use the street vernacular instead of all this silly polite talk: redneck, blanket-ass, zipperhead, $#itskin, halfbreed, dope fiend, hippie, etc.

    • Strike_Team

      Actually in the East and Southeast it’s the other way around. Whoever has the edge in numbers seems to take the initiative. Here in So Cal, the Hispanics have a huge edge in numbers, same goes for the prison system here where the Hispanics have the numbers at most but not all major prisons.

      • Yeah, but demographics are not going to be on the side of blacks for long. First it was all Hispanics that were the largest minority, now I bet that Mexicans alone are the largest. The Golden Age of the Negro is coming to an end even faster that our White Golden Age. That is because at least we Whites can rely on our intelligence, but blacks are completely dependent on our benevolence; they have nothing else.

        • Strike_Team

          Intelligence is what will eventually get whites out of this mess. The overall lack of intelligence is why the hispanics and blacks will eventually sink and shrink.

    • Spaniard in LA

      Hispanics in SoCal are pretty organized when it comes to dealing with blacks. Several years ago a black gang member shot three Hispanics with an AK47, including two kids age 13 and 10. As a result the Mexican mafia set up a secret date and time when hispanics would attack blacks housed in the Los Angeles county jail. These attacks led to the deaths of three black individuals.

      Tensions began right after the Los Angeles riots with the beating of Reginald Denny. Shortly after the riots, the Aryan Brotherhood worked out some kind of secret deal with the Mexican Mafia. The problem is that White prison gangs lack the numbers and are not as organized as the Hispanics. Therefore Whites will usually contract Hispanics to deal with Blacks. A lot of people don’t know that the Mexican Mafia and Aryan Brotherhood are extremely close to each other. These two groups literally work together.

      • Yes, Whites and Hispanics can agree on which group they both really hate. And blacks do everything they can to make people hate them.

      • Strike_Team

        Actually, the AB is more organized than the MM, but it is correct that they don’t have the numbers. The two groups contract with each other to get different things done, both groups have done hits for each other, never mind how intertwined they are when it comes to the drug trade. Yes, they have fought, but they do indeed work closely, very close, in many areas, and tend to back each other in the CA prisons when riots hit. For those of you who aren’t involved in law enforcement, an interesting book that mentions a lot of this without intending to, if that makes sense, is “The Black Hand” by Chris Blatchford. The book is basically Rene Enriquez of Le Eme (the Mexican Mafia) recounting his “career”, and the amount of activity that is listed that also involves the Aryan Brotherhood (and other white gangsters) will surprise a lot of people. Everyone ends up lining up against blacks in the long run.

        By the way, the guy in the vid above, there is no doubt he wanted to go straight back to jail. And going after two blacks only adds to his status.

        • Spaniard in LA

          I happen to read the “The Black Hand” by Chris Blatchford. Enriquez is actually a very bright individual who could have been anything he wanted. I heard Enriquez and Stinson Re the ones who worked out some kind of deal on the early 90’s. The deal was that no Hispanic would be allowed to assault and rob White inmates in the Los Angeles county jail. Enriquez was in the news two weeks ago, he gave some kind of secret speech to a bunch of rich business people.

          • Strike_Team

            Yes, Enriquez is no dummy. One mistake a lot of whites make is they assume all of these guys are brainless, and that’s simply not the case. But there does seem to be a innate tendency toward violence and impulsive behavior in a high percentage of the smart ones (who admittedly are a small percentage of their overall group).

        • Irish

          My favorite fact about the Mexican Mafia is that it was founded by a Croatian American.

        • silviosilver

          By the way, the guy in the vid above, there is no doubt he wanted to go straight back to jail. And going after two blacks only adds to his status.

          When you say this, do you mean such attacks on strangers by ex-cons are a common occurrence with tell-tale signs?

    • Blacks become bold when they sense weakness. Isn’t it strange (maybe not?) that black on White crimes increased precisely when Whites were starting to feel guilty over supposed past injustices toward blacks? Black crime went up after the “Civil Rights Movement” and has been increasing ever since. Obama’s presidency only encouraged it more.

    • BloodofAlbion75

      Of course the Hispanics out here (who are of predominantly Mexican descent) have the blacks cowered.That’s why they’re increasingly successful in their efforts to ethnically cleanse them from L.A. County.

    • Xerxes22

      Blacks don’t commit hate crimes. Whenever Blacks attack Hispanics, it is robbery, gang related, drug related or just some random crime that occurred for no apparent reason. It is never a hate crime.

  • dd121

    It’s pretty well known that Mexican gangs don’t have much use for blacks. I don’t think that’s going to change any time soon.

    • Slayer88

      Does ANY group have much use for blacks, anywhere in the world….I ask rhetorically

      • Luca

        Yes, Democrats need them desperately. They are the perfect useless idiot voters.

      • Yeah. Liberal Whites who want a charity case to feel superior about themselves.

  • Chip Carver

    Before the (much needed) collapse we’ll see a lot more and worse infighting between these two groups, because they basically occupy a lot of the same niche; whether they work or not, their comfortable lives depend on the white man. They have welfare, WIC, EBT, Section 8, housing vouchers, jobs they don’t deserve, the overwheliming majority of their “white collar” populations are artificial placements, meaning they are in place due to affirmative action.

    With the powers that be deciding to try the Latin American model in the US, it will be interesting to see if the hispanics can work up the motivation to go after whites en masse, demanding the mythical “Aztlan” be theirs, before the inevitable collapse of this whole artificial situation we are living in.

    The overwhelming majorities of both the black and brown populations are similar in that they actually believe that with whites gone, things will be better, more for them! Of course they are too dimwitted to realize that without whites, the infrastracture for everything will collapse and mirror that of their native regions, Africa and/or Latin America. No, there aren’t enough Asians to sustain these primitive and very tribal peoples.

    Right now we are getting a glimpse of small skirmishes that point out a larger competitive battle. And that battle is to be the only parasite in a particular niche.

    • LHathaway

      Good post, Chip, but i’m not so sure about this one,

      “they actually believe that with whites gone, things will be better, more for them! Of course they are too dimwitted to realize that without whites, the infrastracture for everything will collapse and mirror that of their native regions”

      There will be more for them, in the short term. But I suspect you underestimate white ingenuity and the triumph of white genetics. Whites have built civilizations of such perfection they will continue to function even after whites are gone.

      • Uninvited Guest

        Yeah just like how Detroit is functioning, right?

      • Strike_Team

        I think you give “them” too much credit, and infrastructure doesn’t hold up without people of substance running the show. I think Chip is on the ball with this one. Look at South Africa. Look at Zimbabwe. Look at how low Mexico has sunk since the 1960’s – for a while it looked like it might start to slowly make movement toward modernity. Look at any area of South America where whites pull back or leave. Look at Detroit. Look at what’s happening in Southern California. Whites leave, things go to hell.

        Whites will do well and will likely take back the “lower 48” once things crumble – if whites coalesce and do what they have to do as a group. But in the US, like everywhere else, whites leave and things tip quickly. Atlanta, Baltimore…

        • LHathaway

          Don’t sell yourself short. They just haven’t taken over a large, first world country yet. Economics, in such a world of integrated information, high speed connectivity, and rapidly increasing automation, is a zero-sum game. The checks and balances, the monetary systems, the genetic endowment whites poured into these institutions is just infused with too much white ingenuity to fail. Indeed, we are witnessing the living cultural expression of white genetics. These systems, built with such care and foresight, will be functioning long after Whites are gone. You’re just that superior.

          Take no comfort gazing on a small place like Zimbabwe as some small consolation. Gaze upon them; drink in the heady waters, but quaff not too deeply. No, the cultural expression of White’s magnificent genetic endowment is eternal. Looking on a place like Detroit; it is an inebriant, a crutch, a steady, that may not be available for you to examine in such condition for long.

          • Strike_Team

            Whites are not going to disappear, and no one is in any despair. Whites will eventually dig themselves out of this mess, but whites need to be very uncomfortable as a group, then things will change. Most white people are not that uncomfortable, but those days are coming sooner than most expect. And when things are finally fixed, the “systems” will eventually be very different from those currently in place. For all the talk, no one can name “systems” that whites left behind to blacks or Amerindians that function well if at all. That scenario doesn’t work. It’s not selling whites short, it’s a matter of giving too much credit to certain non-whites.

            The above mentioned groups do not have the cognitive equipment to maintain, never mind run wholly modern civilizations no matter what structure/infrastructure is in place. Go on a ride along with the LAPD or some Deputies in LA County. It’s like visiting Latin America or Africa depending on where you go. The only reason there is a semblance of order is because there are still whites around. Then visit Detroit, Gary Indiana, Baltimore, the list is endless. Nothing works well and more gears break every day.

    • sl

      No, they chase after white people. White flight is always followed by blacks chasing them and ruining the new neighborhood. Blaming them, accusing them of various things, whining about history, that’s just a way to guilt white people into giving them stuff.

      I’m really anxious about the supreme court hearings about disparate impact. It hopefully will be struck down and people will be able to discriminate based on things like IQ, competency tests, etc. It’s not segregation in theory, but it is in practice.

    Diversity cannibalising itself. It can’t be. Diversity is the wonderful new panacea for the Western world or so they keep parroting.

  • Slayer88

    No doubt this crime was committed by the “white” Vasquez….according to crime statistics

  • IstvanIN

    Oh well.

  • See, ‘diversity’ really does work! Multiculturalism ‘enriches’ us all in every way conceivable, and it makes our communities safer and more pleasant places to live.

    I, for one, propose more Mexicans and African immigration be permitted in order to bring us one step closer to that ‘post-racial’ America that white liberals keeping talking about.

  • phillyguy

    • Unfortunately, some hospital emergency room will get stuck with the second victim’s uninsured medical bills that will be passed on to paying patients. The shopping cart guy will at least be eligible for Worker’s Comp.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      There aren’t enough Whites left in So Cal for blacks OR hispanics to attack, so they’ll have to turn on each other.

      Let ’em.

      • BloodofAlbion75

        “There aren’t enough Whites left in So Cal…”

        Very true.Those of us who still live here (for now) exist in increasingly isolated and alienated pockets of sanity and civility;this will not remain the case for very much longer.

        • Bon, From the Land of Babble

          California is on a collision course with disaster – masses of welfare-eating non-Whites pouring into the state while the producers, job-creators and business owners – i.e., California’s tax base – are leaving in droves.

          Stay safe, friend. It’s likely to become a lot more dangerous here for Whites.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    This is an impossible situation.

    Have the media claimed señor vasquez is a White Hispanic?

    One victim group cannot possibly the victim of another victim group.

    Only Whites attack non-White victim groups. Just ask the media.

    Either the stabber or “stabbees” will have to be labeled “White”

    – – my money is on the Hispanic.

    • Under the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports statistics, Hispanics are “white” when they commit hate crimes, but “Hispanic” when on the receiving end.

      • Cheri Rodriguez

        Google “Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives.” Nine out of 10 are described as “White” but they don’t look very White to me.

      • Who Me?

        Under the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports statistics, Hispanics are “white” when they commit hate crimes, but “Hispanic” when on the receiving end.
        It doesn’t have to be a “hate” crime to be counted that way. A few years ago there was a domestic dispute that ended with one brother killing another. I mean full brothers–same mother and same father. The victim was listed as Hispanic, the killer was listed as white.

      • John Smith

        Maybe his favorite shampoo?

    • Harley Sims

      White? Hilarious. So that is why the white crime stats are inflated. Arabs counted as white too.

    • Caucasoid88

      It drives me up the wall when I get into arguments and people use stats clearly integrating latinos as whites. I try to tell them Hispanics are considered white in federal crime rates but they couldn’t care less.

    • John Smith

      There are white Hispanics, but they don’t look like him. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are representative.

  • Harley Sims

    When Hispanics become the majority in this country black privilege will be over. They won’t put up with them. Blacks can thank Obama and Holder in advance.

    • Exactly. Most Latin American countries have a racial hierarchy that puts Whites at the top and blacks at the bottom. The past Mexican president, I think his name was Fox, looked about as “Mexican” as I do, and I am of Irish descent!

        Yes, Fox looks like an actual Spaniard, a white European from Spain.

      How often do Blacks show gratitude?

      • One of the blacks I knew in the Denver County jail in 2001 (Building Six) used to chat with me, so I wrote up a business plan for him, in which he could buy used power boats down south and drive them up here. He was from there and knew his way around boats. I also suggested the DEA auctions. I was only there pre-sentencing, and did another two years in the feds, but that guy looked me up after I got out, and gave me several thousand dollars.

        He was grateful. I’m glad he made the plan work; I wasn’t expecting any money out of it.

        OK, so that’s once in my lifetime.

        • bilderbuster

          Not bad for a one in a lifetime experience.
          I lived in a small cluster on bungalows once and had a Black woman who lived in the one next door. She had a small garden in front of her place that I would water for her when she was out of town (she worked for an airline and traveled frequently).
          From time to time she would bring me some tasty cherry tomatoes and banana peppers that I didn’t expect but certainly appreciated.

          That’s my once in a lifetime.

        • meanqueen

          I attended an all black/hispanic junior high school for a few months one year. There were only three white kids in the entire school of 1000 kids, and I was one of them. The other white girl was a mean girl who decided to bully me along with her friends. Some black girls came to my defense and made her life a living hell until the end of the year. Every day for a couple of months, I was getting little gifts in my locker from her, as a plea to call off my dogs. I was truly appreciative of the black girls. That was my once in a lifetime.

        • crockadoodle6

          My once in a lifetime was an incident on the streets of Washington DC in 1965. I was being mugged by a group of ferals and was only hit in the back of the head once with the steel pipe. Held by what appeared to be a 13 yr old female baboon who I can still see in my mind’s eye today. Even to this day I don’t know what form of English they were speaking. But they could have killed me. And they didn’t. So I guess I am calling that a once in a lifetime appreciation incident. Other than that they have been nothing but open sores.

    • Not really. The blacks mostly learn to mind their manners around them, that’s all.

  • Gee, and until now I thought that Hispanics were of no use to our society. I stand corrected. All jokes aside, this will happen more often in the future as the mestizo invasion continues. Hispanics don’t like blacks, and unlike Whites, have no feelings of guilt over attacking them. The future may be bleak for White America, but it will be disastrous for Black America. Of course, blacks are too stupid to realize this.

    • Speedy Steve

      Maybe some little white liberal girls could serve as human shields to protect the blacks from the mestizos.

    • Cannot Tell

      I’m one of the rare blacks that is aware of the consequences of a large mestizo population. As much as I understand the desire of whites to be left alone, I definitely plan to continue living in a majority white area so as to avoid mestizos.

      • Thank you. Seriously, we Whites aren’t asking anything from you. As you said, only the right of free association. I have even had blacks as my boss at work; I didn’t mind. Just stay away from our women, as we stay away from yours. Just try and be polite and obey the law, and don’t demand any special privileges. If a White person doesn’t want to talk to you, invite you into their club; or be friends, then respect that person’s right. You have the same job opportunities; the same educational opportunities; and the same legal rights. As a black person you should be happy with that and enjoy the fact that you have it better than any other black community in the world. We ask nothing from you. Peace.

  • To all those blacks who supported and encouraged Hispanic illegal immigration as a means of getting back at the white man, you’re going to get a big, bloody taste of your own medicine.

    You think the white man treated you badly? Wait till you see what the millions of Mexicans, Salvadorians and Hondurans have in store for you! They won’t give a rat’s rear-end about political-correctness any any so-called ‘diversity.’ No, that’s for foolish white liberals to believe in. As for the Hispanic invaders, they can’t wait to show you their ‘family values’ and ‘love’ (per Jeb Bush).

    • BloodofAlbion75

      You’re absolutely right.Blacks thought that they could use the rope of illegal immigration to lynch us Whites,but what they are now learning only too late is that they are inadvertently using it to hang themselves.
