Vicious Attack by Group At Texas Convenience Store
Harris County, Texas – On Sunday at around 7 p.m., a man went to buy items at a Texas convenience store when a group of 5 or 6 men attempted to cut into the line. He looked at them and said “The line’s there for a reason,” and went on into the store to purchase his items. But when he got outside, the group met him and viciously attacked him.
They mocked his hair and clothing. They kicked and punched him. When the first four were done, another one came out of the store and kicked him in the face. As he was kicked in the face, the perpetrator told him, “Black Lives Matter, Bitch.” They then left the scene.
The victim received a swollen lip, bruising, and a cut by his eye. He refused medical treatment.
His girlfriend told KTRK: “I really hope they’re caught before someone else gets hurt. I hope that the people take this and don’t say, ‘It’s white against black.’ I don’t want this to be the statement. I want it to be, here’s a man who was checking out and stood up for himself and he was targeted for that.'”
So this is the narrative of Black Lives Matter? They can beat someone because he mentioned they should get in line like normal people?
Elderly Woman – Random Attack
There are plenty of examples of these kind of attacks. A 92 year old woman was walking down 3rd street in Manhattan’s Gramercy Park last week, when a man randomly struck her in the head, causing her to fall and hit her head on a fire hydrant.
Police arrested Rashid Brimmage, 31, who has a rap sheet of 100 arrests. An officer recognized him from the video. ABC13 reported,
“Police say Brimmage is not only a career criminal, but a transit recidivist. He became a level 2 sex offender with a July 23, 2014 arrest for persistent sexual abuse.
His most recent arrest was March 9, for reportedly punching a 29-year-old man at a pizza shop in East Harlem. He received a desk appearance ticket.
In February, he allegedly punched a 39-year-old female at a Dunkin’ Donuts in the Bronx, and then punched a 39-year-old man at the same donut shop.
He is also a suspect in a February grand larceny in the subway in East Harlem.”
The elderly woman, who told the news outlet that she used to walk and feel safe in her own community, now is afraid to go out by herself. She was only walking to the neighborhood drug store. After the arrest, she said she might be able to leave her house again.
“I thought it was a brick or something like that. Hit me on the right scalp, on the right side of my head, and of course I fell down on the street. There were a couple of young women there. They helped me up. They said, ‘I’m going to call an ambulance.'”
The idea that these thugs are immune from punishment for their crimes is ludicrous, but it seems they think that. As our system undergoes political changes to a “kinder, gentler” direction, this kind of behavior will only worsen. When a group of individuals believes they can do anything they want with no repercussions, or that they are a privileged part of society, there will be more and more criminal actions.
