    [h=1]Federal authorities charge white ‘knockout’ suspect with hate crime[/h]

    Federal authorities said Thursday they have arrested and charged a Texas man in connection with the “knockout game,†accusing him of a hate crime for targeting a black man for a vicious street attack.

    Most knockout victims that have appeared in news reports have been white, but the Justice Department said in this instance the victim was a 79-year-old black man, and stepped in with federal charges.

    “Suspected crimes of this nature will simply not be tolerated,†said Kenneth Magidson, the U.S. attorney for the southern district of Texas. “Evidence of hate crimes will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted with the assistance of all our partners to the fullest extent of the law.â€
    The Justice Department said it filed a criminal complaint against 27-year-old Conrad Alvin Barrett on Tuesday and arrested him on Thursday.
    According to Justice officials, Mr. Barrett recorded himself on his cellphone attacking the 79-year-old man, laughing and saying “Knockout†as he runs away.
    The 79-year-old man had his jaw broken in the Nov. 24 attack.
    “The plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?†Mr. Barrett says in the video, according to the authorities.
    Knockout, in which someone decides to attack a random victim and tries to knock him or her out with one punch, has been in the news after a spate of assaults in recent weeks.
    The “game†has spawned a fierce debate since many of the reported victims have been white and their assailants have been black, but hate crimes charges have been all but non-existent.
    Last month New York authorities did charge one person with a hate crime, saying the assailant targeted a Jewish man.

    if idiots obama and holder are involved you know it will be all about race baiting.
    even though there was no evidence, those two racists tried to charge Zimmerman with a hate crime, when it was Martin who attacked Zim first because he thought he was gay.

    the worst companies I have dealt with on a professional basis over the past 20yrs are the ones where the insecure petty bitch of a ceo surrounds himself with morons to make himself feel good. this is what we have in our current admin.:coffee: i'm not blaming obongo for this current knockout crime, just the continuous pattern of ineptitude & incompetence.

    This makes me wonder, now when I was having trouble with 1 black, I walked out of a Dr's office and walked to the street sidewalk to walk a block and hand half to my car. A car came driving by and 5 enwurds jumped out on me.I was packing and pulled out a Smith&Wesson .357 mag )I have a conceal and carry permit) and not knowing what was about to happen, "I just yelled "I will blow your fucking brains out, and pointed as I aimed at each of them with their circling around me motion. I pulled the hammer back and I was happy to see them scatter, without killing a few of them and perhaps getting shot myself. (I never saw a weapon) Would it become a hate crime if I killed some enwurds who were attempting to jump me? Or would the law have considered it a hate crime if they had beaten or killed me? We have to live by a different set of rules.

    That happened in 2009, I keep my guard up because I figure at some point they will try again. The one that I had trouble with got busted allegedly selling pain meds and weed. He is out though.

    obongo confirms my theory, only govenors or business types for this job, senators & congressmen are the absolute worst ...they are committee people that want to get lost in the crowd & never make or be held responsible for the tough, sometimes unpopular decisions that need to be made. they can even skip out on the tough unpopular votes w/o repurcusions. more importantly they are clueless as to running & administering the daily grind of gubmint. govenors have to do this on a daily basis & are held accountable. govenors are the ceo's of each state while congress is more like the board of directors.

    This administration rivals Carter for complete incompetence. I had to laugh this morning when I read a post on Facebook that a woman, whose family see's no wrong from any democrat and bashed any who said Obamacare was going to cost some people much more. I mean this family is political, the woman's post was: well Merry Christmas, went into the office and was notified that since their are fewer than 25 employees, the doctors do not have to pay. She is without insurance for 3 months at least and in the end is going to cost her much more per month. God, I loved it. Business's who have say, 30 employees will be sure to cut some jobs....hell it will only be smart.
