Wisconsin State Fair Same As Iowa State Fair, No Hate Crime Charges

A3P – August 12, 2011

At the Wisconsin State Fair on August 4th, hundreds of black people attacked white people once again.

The alleged attacks are part of a string of “flash mob”-generated violence around the country — including cities like Philadelphia and Chicago — in which packs of dozens or even hundreds of youths appear seemingly out of nowhere to commit assaults, robberies and other crimes against innocent white bystanders.

At the Iowa State Fair in 2010 scores of black people attacked white people while chanting “Beat Whitey!” The Des Moines law enforcement declined to classify the attacks as hate crimes.

On July 4th, a mob of black youths attacked, beat, kicked, robbed and stomped on a group of whites watching fireworks in Milwaukee (Source). One black youth claimed, “Oh, white girl bleeds a lot,” after assaulting Shania Perry. Several victims claim the local police downplayed the violence the night of the attacks.

During the 4th of July fireworks display in Peoria, Illinois a mob of black people began screaming “Kill Whitey” and disrupted traffic by pulling people out of cars and not letting people drive by blocking the highway.The attackers also took fireworks and pointed them at police and firefighters-helping those who were attacked. Many of them, were burned and injured. The mob left black people alone and beat up as many white people they could find. According to eye-witness, the attack was racially motivated, however many local news papers refuse to acknowledge race.

On opening night of the fair last week, 31 people were arrested and at least 11 people were hurt. According to WCOQ, the West Allis police indicated that race did play a role (WCOQ Source), stating:

“… the ongoing investigations into 11 violent incidents on the opening night of the Wisconsin State Fair suggest race did play a role.

The 11 incidents included nine assaults, a robbery and an attempted robbery. All the victims were white or Hispanic and the offenders were described as African-American.

On opening night of the fair last week, 31 people were arrested and at least 11 people were hurt. The West Allis Police Department is handling some of those cases.” (WSAW Source).

On Wednesday, August 10, the West Allis police department now state that “… none of these incidents possessed elements that would prompt their prosecution as hate crimes.”

What? It’s déjà vu all over again!

In a report (via WLS-890 Am RADIO) a black Wisconsin teen admitted to targeting white people:

The investigation into 11 of the violent incidents on the opening night of the Wisconsin State Fair has resulted in the arrest of a 16-year-old African-American who reportedly told investigators he targeted whites.

West Allis police said Thursday the teen was arrested late Wednesday. The Milwaukee teen was booked on suspicion of attempted robbery and robbery. Police recommend that he face additional penalties for hate crimes.

Police say the teen told investigators whites were chosen because he considered them “easy targets.”

The State Fair has stepped up security since the attacks. [Emphasis added] News Source: The Blaze

But “none” of the attacks “possessed elements” that would prompt hate crime prosecution:

“The police department issued a statement with details of arrests, saying ‘None of these incidents possessed elements that would compel the pursuance of a ‘hate crime’ prosecution.”

Witnesses reported attacks on the opening night of the fair that seemed to be racially motivated with young African Americans beating up white fair goers, but police say at this point there is not enough evidence to support such claims.”

That seems to contradict an AP report.

It also seems to contradict the Justice Department’s definition of a hate crime:

the “violence of intolerance and bigotry, intended to hurt and intimidate someone because of their race, ethnicity, national origin, religious, sexual orientation, or disability.”
