MOBILE, AL – A teen in Alabama has been accused of beating the crap out of his sister’s girlfriend after Thanksgiving dinner, because he did not approve of their relationship.
Even though 23-year-old Mallory Owens has had a rocky relationship with her girlfriend’s family, she told her mother they were trying to be nice and had invited her over to eat Thanksgiving dinner.
Alley Hawkins’s family were trying to accept her year long, homosexual relationship with Owens, but her brother wasn’t having it. Travis Hawkins Jr. had already assaulted Owens once before, when he knocked her upside the head with a pipe wrench. She was injured, but no charges were ever filed.
This latest run-in with Hawkins Jr. ended with Owens looking like she stopped a car with her face. It happened after dinner, just as Owens was leaving the family’s mobile home. That’s when her family says she was blindsided by Hawkins Jr., who delivered a series of punches to Owens’ face.
These punches resulted in Owens being taken to the hospital suffering from multiple skull fractures and crushed facial bones. Aside from being left unrecognizable (warning: kinda graphic pic), she will require facial reconstruction surgery to repair, including having metal plates put in her cheek bones.…Continue Reading
Greenwich Village, NY — Last October we reported on the McDonald’s employee caught on camera as he used a metal bar to beat the crap out of two women who had jumped the counter and tried to attack him. That same McDonald’s is back in the news today after a customer got into an argument with a gay couple, then used a razor to slash one of them in the face and neck.
The attack happened on Wednesday after 24-year-old Jamar McLeod and his transgender girlfriend, Jalisa “JoJo” Griffen, stopped in the McDonald’s so Griffen could use the bathroom. The couple were holding hands and talking about their freinds being attacked for being gay when a man waiting on a cheeseburger confronted them.
He began making anti-gay statements and threatened to beat up Griffen after she went to use the ladies restroom instead of the men’s. McLeod stood up for his girlfriend and told the man that he wasn’t laying a hand on Griffen and that he would have to fight him instead.…Continue Reading
Houston, TX – Three men have been convicted of hate crimes by a Houston federal jury after they beat a random black man at a downtown bus stop last year. A fourth man, 49-year-old Joseph Staggs, saw his case dismissed in return for testifying against the others.
Charles Cannon, 26, Michael McLaughlin, 40, and Brian Kerstetter, 32 are the first people in Houston to be convicted under the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, an act of Congress passed in 2009 that expanded existing United States federal hate crime laws.
The men beat Yondell Johnson as he stood waiting for a bus after spending the day with his daughter. One of the men asked Jackson for the time before a racial slur was used and they began beating him. After he was pulled to the ground, he was repeatedly kicked in the face and had his head stomped. When the men were arrested, McLaughlin and Cannon were heard yelling racial slurs at black officers.
The men claimed to be white supremacists and told police they were in the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang.…Continue Reading
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A 13-year-old boy is home recovering after police say two teens poured gasoline on him and then set him on fire.
According to the reports, the teen was followed home by two older teens while walking from East High School. As he was trying to get into his front door, the two teens allegedly rushed up and grabbed him. One pinned his arms behind his back while another poured gas on the boy and flicked a lighter saying, “This is what you deserve.”
This produced a large fireball that burned the teen’s face and hair. He was able to put out the flames with his shirt while his attackers ran away. The eighth-grader then called 911 before calling his father.
He was taken by ambulance to Children’s Mercy Hospital where he was kept for several hours as they treated first-degree burns to his face and head. Police said they were concerned about possible damage to his eyes and lungs while also saying they are investigating this as a possible hate crime.…Continue Reading
LAS VEGAS, NV – Speaking of hate crimes, Las Vegas police are still looking for a man who shot a couple in an incident they feel was racially motivated. Keep reading, coyotes are involved.
Three weeks ago, a Hispanic couple were on the beach of Lake Mohave using metal detectors when a man walked up to them with a gun, yelled an obscenity, and then began firing. Rosa Castrejon, 42, died immediately but her boyfriend, Leopoldo Cardenas, was struck in the back and paralyzed.
If an asshole turning you into a paraplegic for no reason weren’t bad enough, poor Cardenas’ ordeal wasn’t over yet. His screams for help went unanswered and he had to spend the night on the beach while a pack of friggin’ coyotes circled around him and Castrejon. Luckily he was able to keep them at bay until he was rescued the following morning.
Police initially thought they would apprehend the shooter fairly quickly as they had a pretty good description of him and his vehicle, but much to everyone’s disappointment, the shooter has not been identified and remains at large.…Continue Reading
Panama City, FL — LB and Donna Williams are a mixed-race couple married for seven years; LB is black, Donna is white. Earlier this month, police were called to the couple’s home on a report of a cross burning in their driveway.
“When I saw that cross burning, I was scared to death,” Donna Williams said. “I was terrified … we all were.”
Two days later, Donna found a note taped to the front door and the side entrance of the house. She paraphrased it as “They were watching us, I assumed me and the kids, and that I better not leave that [N-word],” She said that the note was signed “KKK.”
“When did the KKK start supporting black and white, interracial marriages?” she reportedly asked. I blame political correctness. It’s pervasive.
It was reported that Donna – a few minutes after she found the notes – noticed that the handwriting wasn’t exactly the same as her husband’s but it was similar enough for her to attribute it to him. But, since police were already involved, this one wasn’t simply going to be sorted out over dinner.…Continue Reading
Huntsville, TX – If all goes as planned, one of the men responsible for the dragging death of James Byrd 13 years ago will be dead sometime this evening.
Lawrence Russell Brewer, 44, is scheduled to die by lethal injection after 6 p.m. local time in Huntsville, Texas, making him the 11th man executed in Texas this year.
Back in 1998, 49-year-old James Byrd accepted a ride from Lawrence Brewer, John King, and Shawn Berry. The three men took Byrd to a remote area and beat him unconscious before they chained him by his ankles to the back of their pickup truck.
Byrd’s body was dragged for three miles down asphalt pavement as the men swerved the truck side-to-side. Byrd was alive for about two miles until his body hit a culvert and he was decapitated. The men continued driving for another mile, dropping off Byrd’s remains in front of an African-American cemetery before attending a barbecue.
All three men were eventually tried and convicted. Brewer and King received the death penalty while Berry got life in prison.…Continue Reading
Jackson, Mississippi — Two white teenagers have been charged after a man was beaten and ran over with a truck. The county district attorney says the man was targeted simply because he was black.
District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith says that on June 26, two carloads of teen were out driving around looking for a black person to assault. According to law enforcement officials, the group had been at a party drinking when 18-year-old Deryl Dedmon, Jr. suggested they leave and “go fuck with some niggers.”
So they piled into two vehicles and drove 16 miles to a predominantly black area where they found 49-year-old James Craig Anderson in a parking lot near his car. The group pulled in, got out of their vehicles and proceeded to beat the auto plant worker while reportedly yelling racial epithets.
What these idiots didn’t realize is that a surveillance camera was recording the entire event.
Not only did it capture them beating Anderson, it also captured Dedmon get behind the wheel of a Ford F250 and then run over Anderson, who was staggering after getting off the ground.…Continue Reading
TOWSON, Md. – Teonna Brown, the 19-year-old woman who was captured on video beating a transgendered woman silly inside a Maryland McDonald’s, has plead guilty to first-degree assault and to a hate crime.
For those of you who were unaware of this story, Chrissy Polis, a 22-year-old transgendered woman, was inside a McDonald’s when she was attacked by Brown and Brown’s 14-year-old friend.
While restaurant employees stood around and watched, one even filming the entire event, Polis had the crap beat out of her as she was punched, kicked and dragged through the store by her hair.
The only person who tried to help Polis was Vicki Thoms, who was in the restaurant. She was punched by one of the girls for her efforts.
Thinking the entire event was hilarious, the employee filming while providing giddy commentary, posted his video online and within no time the video went viral.
If she gets the maximum sentence on both charges, Brown (who you can see here) could be looking at 35 years behind bars.…Continue Reading
Clearwater, FL — Police have charged a man with attempted murder after he hit a Florida city worker with his truck because he thought the worker looked like a terrorist.
Gerald Christopher Prebe, 35, is reportedly a father of two young children who lives in a neighborhood in Clearwater. Terry Butler, 53, also lives in the same neighborhood as Prebe but according to police, the two didn’t know each other.
Butler is an African-American who has worked for the city of Clearwater in the Street Department for 24 years. Butler’s duties include repairing street signs, painting road stripes and fixing stop lights.
According to the police affidavit, one weekday afternoon in April at about 1:45pm, Prebe was driving his blue Nissan pickup when he saw Butler standing in the road after having finished his lunch break. At that moment Prebe, who was approaching Butler, yelled racial slurs out his open window, accelerated his vehicle, swerved toward Butler and struck him – throwing Butler 20 feet in the air.
After Butler was hit, Prebe sped off.…Continue Reading
PALM BAY, Fla. – Police say a woman originally from Saudi Arabia has been charged with a hate crime after spitting on Walmart shoppers.
It all started on Sunday when 21-year-old Nuha Mohammed Al-Doaifi tried entering the store through the exit and struck the door with her shopping cart. Another shopper told her she was trying to get in through the wrong door and Al-Doafi responded by spitting in their face. She then went into the store with her 2-year-old son to continue shopping.
While in the store, she also did what a lot of us think of doing while in a Walmart and spat at another customer who got too close to her, but missed. Workers were notified and security called police. At first police were going to charge Al-Doafi with battery, but they gave that charge a hate crime spritzer after she allegedly told police her reason for spitting on people was because “Americans are pushing us around.” Now her charge could be elevated to a felony.
Seems she has a habit of spitting on people she does not like or has issues with.…Continue Reading
Baltimore, MD – Bond has been denied for Teonna Monae Brown, one of the two teens charged with beating Chrissy Lee Polis in a Baltimore McDonald’s.
The attack was filmed by a McDonald’s employee who has since been fired, but not before he posted the video on his Facebook and found out the hard way that most of society did not find the act as hilarious as he did and do not condone the actions of Brown and her 14-year-old friend.
I don’t normally like to post about the same story in one week, but more information has been released regarding this incident, including Brown’s name, mugshot and the charges against her that include three first and second-degree assault charges.
The other bit of info comes from The Smoking Gun who uncovered that Brown was arrested for assaulting a woman last year, in the exact same restaurant. After watching Brown’s activities in the videotaped assault of Chrissy Polis, that doesn’t surprise me in the least.
Also revealed is the older woman who tries to step in and help Polis.…Continue Reading
Baltimore, MD – It’s been a pretty good week for someone like myself who has a morbid fascination with amusement park accidents and fast food restaurant based stories. Earlier this month we posted the McDonald’s Hiring Day fiasco and the McDonald’s manager who beat down an employee.
Now we have a third McDonald’s story after a video has went viral showing two teen girls beating the ever-living crap out of a 22-year-old transgendered woman in a Baltimore McDonald’s.
Now for those of you who cannot see the following video, it shows two black girls, aged 14 and 18, beating on a 22-year-old white woman who is reportedly transgendered. This tag team goes on for about three straight minutes and ends after she is dragged to the front of the store by her hair and goes into seizures after taking a vicious blow to the head.
But to me the real story goes beyond the attack, which some are calling a hate crime, and more to do with the action\inaction of the people watching it as it unfolds.…Continue Reading
Cleveland, OH - Three Cleveland teens are standing before a judge in courtroom 3-D this morning, answering to charges they beat a man so badly last Wednesday that he was placed in intensive care. Two teens, both 18, were walking home from Max Hayes High School when they say the were assaulted by a group of eight boys ranging in age from 15 to 19, because they are an interracial couple. The group followed the couple making vulgar remarks and comments with one informing the girl, who is African American, “You’re cute but I’m gonna punch him in the face.” But it turned out that it was she who would initially get punched in the face. When her boyfriend, Jefferey Meadows Jr., stepped in to defend her, he was ruthlessly beaten for it. Nieghbors called 911, but the girl was able to walk her boyfriend to a realtive who then took him to the hospital. His injuries were so severe that he was life-flighted to the Level 1 Trauma Center at MetroHealth Medical Center.…Continue Reading
A truly horrific story of an African-American man whose dead body was dragged with a rope for more than 10 miles behind a truck. According to police, the victim, 30-year old Anthony Hill, died from a single gunshot wound to the head and was apparently dead before his body was dragged and mangled. Deputies followed a 10-mile trail of blood and gore left on several roads leading to the rural home of Gregory Collins of Newberry County. For three hours, Collins refused to come out of his home. A SLED SWAT team finally fired tear gas into the home, forcing Collins to surrender. He was arrested and charged with murder. This story reminded me of a documentary I watched quite a few years back of another African-American man who was walking home one night when some assholes decided to end his life. But unlike Hill, that victim was dragged to his death. For the life of me, I cannot remember the name of the guy this morning, but I do remember the investigators describing and showing the images of the trail left behind on the paved road.…Continue Reading
Breckenridge, CO – Nothing pisses me off more than a triflin’ little hair pulling bitch. Hair pulling is the pussiest of all pussy moves and should be dealt with by administering an immediate punch to the throat and a kick to the shin. Last Saturday evening, Dustin Meadows, 37, was at the Cala Inn in Summit County – while dancing around, he accidentally spilled his beer on a woman sitting at the bar. The woman turned to him and asked, “What, no apology?” Instead of apologizing, Dustin started cussing at the woman and began hurling racial slurs. Dustin was pulled away from the woman by other bar patrons. A couple of women who were with Dustin apologized to the woman for his behavior. Just minutes later, as Dustin was leaving the bar, he again started spewing obscenities. The woman stood up and yelled at him to leave. Right about then, Dustin allegedly grabbed the woman by her hair and dragged her out of the bar. It took the help of several bar patrons to pry the woman away from Dustin, but by then, she had already lost most of the hair from the right side of her head.…Continue Reading
Tampa, Florida – A Greek Orthodox priest, Alexios Marakis, 29, was visiting St. Nicholas Greek Cathedral in Tarpon Spings. He was in Tampa to visit a fellow priest but got lost downtown. So he pulled into an apartment complex and approached a young man to ask for directions. Sadly, he asked a complete tool named Jasen D. Bruce – a Marine reservist. Instead of directions, Marakis got Bruce’s tire iron upside his head. Bruce then chased Marakis for three blocks while Bruce called 911 saying that he was trying to apprehend a terrorist. When police arrived on the scene they say Bruce told them he heard the man say “Allahu Akbar” and then added “That’s what they say before they blow you up.” Classic. When he was informed that the man he had beaten was a priest, Bruce started crying. Jasen Bruce was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. …Continue Reading
Belleville, Illinois – Two of the students involved in the beating of a 17-year-old classmate while riding on a Belleville school bus will be charged with felonies for their part.
The altercation was captured on video (watch it after the jump), and shows a 17-year-old get beat by two different students within moments of each other. The race issue was thrown around when the story first broke, as the victim is white and his attackers are black, but more information has come out since these reports and it doesn’t look like race was a motivating factor. Or if it was, there is no evidence to support it.
The 14 and 15-year-old shown punching on the kid were not only expelled from Belleville West High School for the rest of this year and all of next, they were also charged with felony counts of aggravated battery. If convicted, they will spend some time in a juvenile corrections facility. “This is an egregious act,” said Belleville Township High School District 201 school board member Kurt Schroeder.…Continue Reading
Boulder, CO - Luke Barrett is a mess – not only is he sportin’ a couple of retarded tats, but check out that half ‘stache! WTF is going on there? Not only is he a mess, but now he’s sitting in jail because officers with the Boulder PD have nothing but time on their hands. Now, Luke isn’t here because he raped/maimed/abused/or set fire to man, child, or beast – he’s here because he really shook someone up. And not in the literal sense either. (Ok. He’s really here because of the tard mug). Luke, a transient, approached a couple of teen boys Friday night and called one of them, a black 15-year-old, a derogatory name. He put up his arms in a ‘fighting stance’ and said something to the effect of “Hey Mike Tyson, let’s box.” The teen said he didn’t want to fight and took a step back. At that point, Luke ran away. You would think that would’ve been the end of it, right? Nope. …Continue Reading
Brandon Piekarsky, Derrick Donchak, Colin Walsh and Luis Ramirez
A preliminary hearing was underway at the Schuylkill County courthouse on Monday. Outside, a group of protesters, made up of immigrant workers’ and immigrants’ rights groups, had become so loud, the hearing had to be stopped so that authorities could get the group to quiet down.
