    Default Crowd kills man after car hits child

    ---Further decline of the Western Civilization---

    AUSTIN, Texas - Police on Wednesday were pleading for witnesses to help them track down members of an angry mob that beat a man to death after the car he was riding in apparently struck and injured a child.

    Investigators were struggling to piece together what happened Tuesday when David Rivas Morales died defending the driver from members of a crowd leaving a Juneteenth celebration. There could have been anywhere from two to 20 attackers, Austin Police Commander Harold Piatt said.

    The car in which Morales, 40, was a passenger had entered an apartment complex's parking lot when it struck a 3- or 4-year-old child, Piatt said. The child was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

    The driver got out of the car to check on the child and was confronted by several people, Piatt said. When they attacked the driver, Morales got out of the car to protect the driver and was attacked as well. Police said no guns or knives were used.

    The driver got away and is cooperating with investigators, who are not releasing his name.

    Margaret Morales said a young boy came to her door to tell her that her brother was lying on the ground outside. She found David Morales, sprawled on the pavement 100 feet from her townhouse, battered and choking on blood.

    She said her mother came running after hearing her screams, but police wouldn't let either of them get close to him.

    Police arrived one minute after receiving a 911 call, by which time the beating had stopped, department spokeswoman Toni Chovanetz said. But the Morales family complained that medical help was slow in coming.

    David Morales arrived at the hospital about 35 minutes after the 911 call was received, said Warren Hassinger, Austin-Travis County Emergency Services spokesman. Emergency officials said police ordered them to wait until the area was secure.

    An estimated 2,000 to 3,000 people were in the area for a city-sponsored festival for Juneteenth, which commemorates Texas slaves getting the word that they had been freed.

    Several hundred people had filled the parking lot and street as the daylong festival at a nearby park ended and spilled over into the surrounding neighborhoods, said Katherine White, a Morales family friend who lives in a townhouse next door to where the beating took place.

    Police said the injured child was a girl, but White said it was a boy with long hair he wears in ponytails.

    Margaret Morales said her brother, who was staying with her, was a painter on his way home from work. The driver, whom she knew only as Victor, picked him up and dropped him off everyday, she said.

    The Morales family remembered David as a caring brother who loved the San Antonio Spurs and was thrilled when they won the NBA title last week. Earl White, Katherine's brother, said David Morales enjoyed sitting on the porch, watching the neighborhood children play in the parking lot.

    "I just want the people caught and brought to justice," another sister, Elizabeth Morales, said. "I want them to feel the same pain that they caused my brother."

    This mob needs to go after people that do bad things on purpose. Like the guy a few months back that put the baby in the microwave. Where's this angry mob then?
    Or maybe this mob can do some 'cleaning up' in New Haven.

    It was a woman who put a baby in a microwave.

    And that's a piece of news I'd rather expect to be coming from Middle East. Or Germany of the 30-ies, if you pay an attention to victim's surname. Willy it wasn't the driver who was killed.

    Are you sure it was a woman? Either way the scumbag still deserves to die at the hands of an angry mob.

    Nah, it was the guy. His wife (I think it was his wife) said he did it because Satan made him do it.

    There's different incidents of babies and microwaves, unfortunately. The most recent one discussed here was in TX and was the Father. That's the one that the Mother blames Satan.

    There was another one in OH that was the mother. The baby did not survive that one.

    At least the mob won't have too far to travel to get the guy in TX, then hop a quick flight to Ohio.

    ..and maybe then they could work their way east to New Haven.

    Unbelievable. This guy accidently hits a kid, stops and gets out of his car to check, and a mob attacks him?

    And people wonder why other people leave the scene of an accident.

    Unbelievable.

    And to celebrate this, members of the typically rational, well behaved and always civilised crowd beat a man to death. One can be certain that Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson or both are already traveling there to lend support.

    dude.

    this is what living in the burbs does to you.

    battling beaverton public schools over zoning bullshit, watching my taxes soar and realizing that as an upper middle class hetero caucasian, you have very little say in most societal matters while people run amock with their personal agendas and special interests.

    i must say i am settling quite comfortably in to misanthropy.

    that's not to say that i don't have an awesome life and some of the raddest people in the world by my side.

    i just think it's sad watching us become rome out of apathy, guilt, fear and ignorance.

    but i digress.

    carry on with the nice thread.

    Ironically I enjoyed your post. And I tend to agree with some of it.

    "misanthropy" seems like a bit of a harsh word, though.

    i guess i'm just getting to a point where i'm down with "my people" and that's about it.

    maybe there's a better term for it.

    the older i get, i am convinced that my death is going to be caused by a stupid person acting stupidly.

    that kind of pisses me off...

    preemptively.

    See, I don't even really have a particular zone to battle. Nobody knows if I'm in Beaverton, Aloha, or Hillsboro. It's great.

    Hey man, at least we have the number 1 pick. It means stuff....n' stuff.
