    Soldier Mom Beaten in front of Daughter

    ...by some mullet-headed redneck at a Georgia Cracker Barrel

    I think we found one of the guys Jimmy Carter was talking about:



    Police said an investigation revealed that the female victim, identified as Tasha Hill, was entering the Cracker Barrel with her 7-year-old daughter as West was leaving the restaurant. As West was leaving, the exit door came close to striking the 7-year-old daughter of the victim, police said. Hill, by all witness accounts, politely asked West to be careful, officials said.
    "The man slung open the door pretty hard and fast and I had to push my daughter out of the way. I turned to the man and I just said, 'Excuse me sir, you need to watch yourself you almost hit my daughter in the face.' And from there it just went downhill," said Hill.

    At that point, West became enraged and began to beat the victim in front of her 7-year-old daughter, according to police. Hill said she told West she was an Army servicemember and she did not want any trouble.

    In my neck of the woods we don't think very highly of President Carter and his performance as a President. Though President Obama is held in high regard by many including myself.

    This story is very unfortunate but as a foreigner who has traveled the US extensively I can say that I truly believe that the United States us one of the most welcoming and open minded countries I have ever been to. For every one of these a-holes there are thousands of open minded and caring people and I can give you many stories about how this has been proven to me on many occasions.

    Anybody who thinks that racism is a major problem in the US should travel more around Europe, Africa and Asia and they will see institutional racism much more horrific than an assault by a violent man such as this.

    I am not so naive to think that racism doesnt exist in the US, of course it does. But one of the most important aspects about racism in the US is that it has been prohibited emphatically and extensively by the law, which is more than I can say for many other countries in the world, including my own.

    This sets the US apart from may places in the world and its a shame that many Americans take this for granted.
    Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.

    Racial hatred builds up and then it comes out in an explosion. It wasn't just this one incident that probably set this guy off, its the totality of the racial situation, specifically between blacks and whites. It is at Critical Mass. I hope we can find a peaceful way out of this situation, but issues on both sides continue to fan the flames of hatred and violence.

    There were many witnesses to assist police, but no one stepped up to defend this woman while she was getting her head beat in? In fairness, perhaps it happened to fast before anyone could do anything.

    Grandfather Gets Life; Killed 6-Year-Old Over Watermelon

    Posted: 10:07 am EDT September 15, 2009Updated: 10:19 am EDT September 15, 2009
    COMMERCE, Ga. -- A Commerce man faces life in prison after pleading guilty to fatally shooting his 6-year-old grandson as the family was preparing to go on a Sunday afternoon picnic.

    Robert L. "Bobby" Clark Jr. killed his stepgrandson, Michael Levigne, and shot his wife, Linda Clark, several times in the abdomen at the couple's home on June 7. Relatives say Clark became enraged after his wife accused him of taking a piece of watermelon meant for the picnic.

    After the couple argued, Clark got his gun from the bedroom and killed the boy. Linda Clark was critically injured when she stepped in front of Michael's 5-year-old brother to protect him.

    Robert Clark pleaded guilty to malice murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and aggravated battery.

    He could have faced the death penalty at trial.

    "This case has been referred to the FBI Civil Rights Division for a possible violation of Federal Hate Crime Laws."

    This was brought up in an older thread at one time, but WHAT are the chances of the above happening IF this was an attack on a white woman by someone of ANY other race? My guess, slim to none...

    What is it with you and race, voivod? Do you have some kind of repressed racial issues?

    Nope... Regardless of what you wish to believe...

    Just seems "race" is being tossed around as a knee-jerk cop-out excuse for many people's actions/attitudes way too much of late because of the President MANY of us voted for...

    For the record, I'm a Republican who voted for Obama...

    every crime is a hate crime. Can't think of a single "crime of love"

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Yep. Never agreed with or understood hate crime legislation. If I shoot someone at random on the street because he cut me off in traffic; or if I shoot him right before I call him a racial slur. What is the difference? It just feels like "feel good" legislation to me. Doing something like that to another human being is wrong, regardless if the motivation is based on skin color, religion, or if the guy is banging someone's wife.

    Yeah, because there's no possible way that this had anything to do with race, right?

    Exaggerating the problem of racial issues definitely never helps anything, but ignoring the problem and acting like it doesn't exist is flat-out irresponsible and only worsens a very serious problem.
