Imagine a family hanging out at a friend’s house after watching a fireworks show, minding their own business, when all of a sudden a mob of 50 teenagers come out of nowhere and start attacking the group without provocation.
Now imagine if the family spending time with their friends were black and the gang of hoodlums was white yelling things like, “”This is our world!” and ”This is a white world!” while beating up on everyone in sight, eventually sending the father to the critical care unit at the local hospital for five days.
How many seconds do you think it would take before the story was all over the front page of every paper in the country and made it completely around the internet 15 times? How quickly would Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson whip out the race card while jumping in front of every television network news camera spewing their usual predictable nonsense, leading marches down the street of the city and demanding that police put every officer in the department on the case?
So what happens if the family that gets attacked happened to be white and the 50 thugs turn out to be black?
Apparently what happens is the local police start hemming and hawing about whether or not this was a hate crime, a gang initiation or ‘just a bunch of kids acting up, ya know…like kids do once in awhile.’

The Marshall family of Akron Ohio found out first hand what it is like to be surrounded by several dozen rabid teenagers hell bent on viciously assaulting them all the while hurling racial taunts yet the police, at this point, don’t seem to be too concerned about that part of the attack.
The family also knows what it’s like to now owe thousands of dollars for medical expenses after Mr. Marshall spent nearly a week in the intensive care unit of the local hospital. That said, I guess it is good to know the Akron police do, at the very least, have the gang detail looking into who the attackers may be. Unfortunately the probability that the Marshalls will ever be able to recoup their medical expenses from these felonious attackers even if they were to be caught is right around zero not to mention that if the punks turn out to be young juveniles the chance of them receiving any substantial punishment for their many crimes during this attack is about the same.
From today’s ohio.com website,
Akron police say they aren’t ready to call it a hate crime or a gang initiation.
But to Marty Marshall, his wife and two kids, it seems pretty clear.
It came after a family night of celebrating America and freedom with a fireworks show at Firestone Stadium. Marshall, his family and two friends were gathered outside a friend’s home in South Akron.
Out of nowhere, the six were attacked by dozens of teenage boys, who shouted ”This is our world” and ”This is a black world” as they confronted Marshall and his family. [Somehow I have the strong belief that there was much more said by the gang of black teenagers attacking the white family that was left out of this particular story….ed]
The Marshalls, who are white, say the crowd of teens who attacked them and two friends June 27 on Girard Street numbered close to 50. The teens were all black.

As I suspected there is much more to this story than was first “reported” including the fact the police did not contact the media until two weeks after this savage attack on several people that night by this group of black teenagers.
All John Alchier could do was sit and pray.
His call to 911 was put on hold, he said, as he sat in his wheelchair and watched a group of teens pummel his brother and friend.
Alchier, 40, had a front-row seat as the teens swarmed a family gathering on Girard Street following the June 27 fireworks show at Firestone Park. Helplessness overtook him as he prayed out loud.
Community leaders are now voicing disgust over the attack, which is an example of the city’s ballooning assault rate.
In police District 6, which includes Firestone Park, reports show that aggravated assaults have more than doubled this year compared with 2008.
The increase in aggravated assaults is even more dramatic in other areas of the city.
What happened on Girard Street is also a symbol of Akron’s hushed racial tension. The victims are white; their attackers are black.
The attack has ignited scores of reaction, including a call for justice for the victims by the Rev. Al Sharpton.
From his view, Alchier said there’s more to the story than has been told.
”The newspapers and the news is not telling the entire story. No one is,” Alchier said from his home in Akron.

As much as I can’t stand this race baiting opportunist some credit has to go to Al Sharpton as he calls out for justice for the Marshall family and all the other victims of the racial attack by this roaming group of thugs.
