911 Calls Describe Terror Caused by Mob Rampage in Charleston

Dave Munday, Post and Courier, April 28, 2015

As many as 60 teens were roaming Charleston streets attacking pedestrians and drivers early Sunday, witnesses told police dispatchers in 911 calls released Tuesday.

All the teens were black, according to witnesses, and all but one of the people attacked were white. Still, it’s unclear if the attacks were racially motivated or sparked by the unrest in Baltimore, which followed the recent shooting death of Walter Scott, a black man, by a white North Charleston police officer.

Investigators haven’t yet determined a motive, according to Charleston Police Department spokesman Charles Francis.


The teens came out of a party at the YWCA on Coming Street about 12:30 a.m. and hit the streets. Groups not associated with the YWCA rent the facility.

The motto of the YWCA is “Empowering Women and Eliminating Racism.” The organization sponsors the annual local celebration of Martin Luther King Jr., who preached nonviolence.


The number of teens on the prowl is bigger than initially estimated, and the 911 calls released Tuesday show some of the terror the mob caused.

A young woman called 911 to report the chaos outside her apartment at Vanderhorst and Coming streets.

“There’s like 50 black kids outside, and they’re getting into a fight,” she told the operator. “Oh, my God, there’s blood everywhere. . . . Look at all that blood.”

Another young woman called to say she was standing at the intersection.

“They’re just in the street screaming and yelling,” she said. “I want to say 60 people.”

Terror could be heard in the voices of many of the callers, including a man who called from his car and said he was being blocked by about 50 teens.

“They just smacked my car,” he told the operator. “I’m flooring it in reverse. This is just ridiculous. . . . I’m getting the hell out of here, man. They just smacked another car.”

He said a group began beating a man.

“They’ve got a dude down on the ground,” he said. “There’s like five of them punching the dude. . . . There’s a guy taunting me. I couldn’t make the green light because he was standing in the intersection taunting me. It’s pretty terrifying, man.”


Officers said they were so overwhelmed by calls they couldn’t handle all of them.

They released several reports that detail attacks:

A pizza delivery man was attacked in his car about 1:15 a.m. on Sumter Street. A group blocked him from crossing Rutledge Avenue. He reported that a male attacker jumped on the hood of his car, and after he opened his door, others began punching him.

The latest happened to a man getting out of a cab on Rutledge Avenue about 2 a.m. He said a large group of males and females under 20 years old approached him and his girlfriend. He was punched several times.

A group beat two men in the face while the victims were walking along Vanderhorst Street about 1 a.m. One teen was arrested Monday in that attack, and more arrests are possible.

Jordan Q. Hall, 17, of Chapel Street, a ninth-grader at Burke High School, faces two counts of second-degree assault and battery by mob.


The felony charge is punishable by three to 25 years in prison. The elevated charges are related to the suspect being part of a mob causing “serious bodily injury,” according to the S.C. Code of Laws.

One man’s nose was broken, causing severe bleeding, according to an incident report.

Another victim was diagnosed with a facial fracture near his left eye and suffered swelling and bruising to his head after Hall repeatedly struck him with closed fists, according to the arrest affidavit. {snip}


An incident report said the event at the YWCA was a birthday party. A 16-year-old black teen said he also was beaten and robbed by a group on Vanderhorst Street after attending the event.

He said police dispersed the crowd after it let out and that someone in one of the groups later put a gun to his head. He reported being punched and kicked and robbed of an iPhone. He said his mother picked him up about 1:30 a.m. on Rutledge Avenue.

State law treats mob violence seriously.

Under the heading “Lynching,” it details the three degrees of crime and punishment, which range from up to a year in prison to a minimum of 30 years in the case of a victim’s death.

    Get a gun and shoot to kill.

    • Jason Lewis

      Don’t forget to train often.

      • Mack0

        Hahaha. Solid advice that should be headed by all!

    • propagandaoftruth

      I invite all “racist” White peckerwoods and strong White women to move to SC. Rather than run and hide in the mountains, come on down here. Cost of living is low, and there are still Whites here with dignity and gravel in our guts.

      Time is close to making a stand, brothers and sisters. Think I might take a trip down to old Chuckytown and see my brother. Anyone want to come with?

      • Mack0

        Interesting. I never considered that option. We do need to congregate if we hope to service

        • drunkbobby

          Lol, sounds like there was an environment rich in targets to be serviced.

      • Diana Moon Glampers

        Despite the surprising lack of armed response to this outburst, Charleston is still mostly populated by relatively aware whites. A good place for solidarity when TSHTF.

        • propagandaoftruth

          Hey, you’re driving or walking downtown, minding your own business, and suddenly…


          They have the initiative because they attack out of nowhere, they initiate unexpectedly.

          We need to train our folk in self defense – not just gun use and martial arts, but tactics and responses. Most importantly we need to educate Whites about the way it REALLY is and encourage our folk to do something other than hide or look on in terror.

          5 hard minded peckerwoods who know how to rumble (even one or two bolstering others less accustomed to the rough stuff) could have saved some folk from being beaten and turned that pack of feral cowards into fleeing rats.

          5 peckerwoods operating in unison could have stopped that mob in its tracks.

          And if 5 had stood up, more than 5 would have stood up.

          We must educate our folk. Deprogram.

          • Diana Moon Glampers

            I am unlikely to be doing anything downtown north of Broad, but sometimes a gal needs to go to the apple store, or try to get away from the disgusting cast of Southern Charm (gross).
            The thing that surprises me is that anyone is fool enough to be out at night and not expect violent black mobs to be a possibility. I get it that Charleston is full of tourists, but come on, people.
            White people will become more accustomed to self-preservation; we have no choice. As for me, one of my goals for this year is to learn to shoot straight and far. Like you, I think a big upheaval is coming. I want to be as ready as I can. Defensible location will be important when it gets bad.

          • propagandaoftruth

            Hey darlin’…
            I’m right down the road. I’d lay down my life for you, though I’d rather lay out someone else.

            Consider some martial arts too if you can, but SC is a concealed carry state (THANK GOD), so definitely pursue your action plan.

            And stay safe.

          • Cid Campeador

            You are so right Diana! The upheaval is already in its beginning stage. It’s a war that has been declared on us that we haven’t quite realized it as yet.
            “You get further with a kind word and a gun that with JUST a kind word.” Al Capone

          • Cid Campeador

            They always have the advantage of numbers. White people generally don’t travel in Gangs and generally don’t carry firearms.
            Nothing will change until Whites stop being worms and become Cobras.

      • Earl P. Holt III

        It occurs to me that if if TSHTF — and we attack the enemy head-on and in force — we will very soon become the targets of law enforcement.

        However, the exploits of Nathan Bedford Forrest should be an inspiration to every Patriot wishing to do his duty, and should serve as an example of how to successfully manage the coming race war…

        • Diana Moon Glampers

          It’s true that those billion DHS rounds are for us when we try to make a stand after TSHTF. That’s why it’s a good idea to try to be somewhere that is largely white and geographically advantageous. Those two attributes will at least buy some time. Maybe enough for children to hide or bug out until the threat subsides (if it ever does).

        • Hilis Hatki

          Rommel thought so.

    • APaige

      Especially if they are 17 year-old ninth graders. Black behavior really screws up numbers, I bet his father who he has never seen is only 23 years old.

      • thegodsofeden

        I thought that was a typo. 17 yr-old ninth grader. Really? Sheesh.

      • InAFreeCountry

        He must be triple dumb if the teachers didn’t just pass him.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    It’s becoming increasingly evident that black mob attacks are simply part of New America. And they will continue to be until the white man does something about it. We cannot count on black people to police their own.

    • Illidan Stormragge

      White people are bafflingly stupid these days. How many critical thinking skills do you need to realise that black people have less impulse control and significantly lower intelligence on average, thus being impossible to fully integrate? I must have realized this when I was 13 or so.

  • Steve_in_Vermont

    When driving, and confronted by a mob, remember you weigh over 3000 pounds and have an accelerator. If you hit someone don’t stop but call 911 and drive to the nearest police station to file a report. Never stop or exit your vehicle. In some circumstances it’s all the protection you have.

    • InAFreeCountry

      Pizza boy should not have got out of the car under any circumstances after someone already jumped on his hood.

    • Ella

      Well, at least the school district did not socially promote Mr. Hall to a higher grade level. District did one thing correctly.

      • Earl P. Holt III

        Only because he didn’t show-up for the test…

      • carriewhite64

        The sad thing is that he probably was socially promoted several times in his school career. Otherwise, he would probably be in the 5th grade.

  • The motto of the YWCA is “Empowering Women and Eliminating Racism.”

    Well, they failed on the second count.

    Jordan Q. Hall, 17, of Chapel Street, a ninth-grader at Burke High School, faces two counts of second-degree assault and battery by mob.

    How sad, a 17-year old Freshman is going to be shoved into the school to prison pipeline for no reason at all.

    Under the heading “Lynching,” it details the three degrees of crime and punishment, which range from up to a year in prison to a minimum of 30 years in the case of a victim’s death.

    I remember an AR article from back in the old days of the old online format, that black politicians and civil rights groups in one of the Carolinas (might have been North, but maybe it was South) were complaining that lynching laws were being used almost entirely against blacks. That’s our Africanus Bellcurvius for you: They can’t even abide by laws pretty much specifically established to be used against white people.

  • how about this

    Here is a nice example from the comments on the article of our opposition’s mentality. Someone made this comment:

    “”It just seems unusual that folks would attack people that way. It’s atypical”
    Actually, it is NOT atypical at all. Packs of black people attacking other ethnic groups and homosexuals is in fact routine.”

    The response from an anti-racist (a “top commenter,” so apparently pretty popular) came back:

    “Forwarded your comment to google though I doubt seriously anyone making stupid comments like yours works there. If you do opening you racist mouth will make that a short term job.”

    Just making a simple observation, without expressing any emotion or advocating anything (including policy change), is enough to make them want to threaten your livelihood.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      Take heart, the first derivative on that phenomenon is negative now. At the apogee of the technique’s effectiveness, the offended would just contact your employer and you found out when you were fired. This person has to front a bit on it because like as not it won’t happen, and they know that.

    • “You said something I don’t like, so I just contacted your employer in hopes of getting you fired and, if things go according to my plan, ensuring that your children starve. I hope it was worth posting mean words about knee grows on the internet.”

      Multicultists are beasts on hind legs.

      • how about this

        I believe they prefer the phrase “free of traditional moral restrictions.”

        • Their favorite retort is, “You have freedom of speech, but you aren’t free from the consequences of that speech.” What they’re saying is you’re free to disagree with them, but they’ll do everything within their power–legally or not–to destroy you and your livelihood. “You’re free to resist,” said the mugger, “but I’ll have to bash your skull in if you do.”

          They’re too cowardly and passive aggressive for direct confrontation, so they work in the dark, trying to ruin people who threaten their delusions. It’s hard to think of more contemptible behavior than that. At least the mugger engages in his work with not inconsiderable risk to himself.

  • superlloyd

    ‘Still, it’s unclear if the attacks were racially motivated.” You’d have to a completely liberated or black to come to that insane conclusion.

  • Peters

    “Still, it’s unclear if the attacks were racially motivated or sparked by the unrest in Baltimore, which followed the recent shooting death of Walter Scott, a black man, by a white North Charleston police officer.”

    Shouldn’t it be “and” instead of “or” in the sentence?

  • anton drexler

    “All the teens were black, and all the people attacked were white. Still, it’s unclear if the attacks were racially motivated.” Yeah, unclear indeed. I don’t think even the Leftist High Priests in the media and ruling classes believe their BS anymore, they just spew their lies to collect their 30 pieces of silver from Caiaphas. The careerist liberal elites are worse than their Negro pets because they breed them into pit bulls and sick them on the innocent. The Media must be regarded as the central enemy in the revolutionary struggle. Liberate the Media from Caiaphas, and everything else will follow..

    • listenupbub

      I believe you are right. Liberals know that it is a joke. Especially the homosexual and Jooish ones. They all know. They just have a beef with traditional Protestant America and they want to see it fall.

      They also believe in the myth called “equality.” They will perpetuate many lies to bring about equality. Think about Richard Gruber, for instance, who joked about how Americans were such suckers for being fooled by propaganda about Obamacare.

    These are literally apes walking on two legs terrorizing. This once proud country reduced to this. Only in white societies do blacks get away with such blatant anti-social behavior. Other countries, shoot to kill.

    You think out of all these assault incidences that they will cross the wrong man with military or police training. Maybe, normal people are in bed and sleeping at this hour?


    “Still, it’s unclear if the attacks were racially motivated or sparked by the unrest in Baltimore, which followed the recent shooting death of Walter Scott, a black man, by a white North Charleston police officer.” – Are they really trying to say that if the motivation of black people for assaulting innocent white people is in anyway connected to the hyper racialized rioting and “protesting” going on. That that, somehow magically excludes black racial hatred of white people as being the motive? In planet reality however, that fact should only serve to strengthen the possibility that these attacks were racial in nature.
