Mob Kills Van's Occupants After Chicago Crash Wed Jul 31, 4:49 PM ET

Well, let see all you lefties go protest this, especially all you who cry "racism"...White cop punches black kid: BAD! Black mob massacres 2 old black guys: well, you know...

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Chicago police on Wednesday condemned as "cowardly thugs" a mob that used stones, bricks, punches and kicks to beat to death two men whose rental van skidded out of control, jumped a curb and injured three women.



Police were questioning several people, at least one of whom was considered a suspect, and appealed for eyewitnesses to Tuesday's attack to come forward.

The two slain men were hauling furniture in the van, which ran a stop sign, skidded over a curb, and pinned three women to the front porch of a South Side building, police said.

Police said roughly five people used stones and bricks as well as their fists and feet to beat the men, who were later pronounced dead at local hospitals. Several other bystanders called police to report the accident and the beating in progress.

"By no means is this street justice, this is not vigilante justice, this is not justice of any kind," Police Superintendent Terry Hillard told reporters. "The people in that neighborhood ... they don't condone, won't tolerate that sort of behavior.

"This is a simple, senseless double-homicide committed by a bunch of cowardly thugs, and these murderers will be brought to justice, you can rest assured."

Police said the crowd appeared to be simply angry that the women were hurt and went after the men.

Why the van swerved out of control was unclear, and tests were being conducted to determine if the vehicle suffered a mechanical breakdown or if either victim was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Police said both victims, Jack Moore, 62, and Anthony Stuckey, 50, lived in the neighborhood. The coroner determined they died from the beating and not any other cause, Hillard said.

The women struck by the van were a 26-year-old who suffered a broken arm, an 18-year-old who suffered a gash on the chin and lost three teeth, and a 17-year-old with a possible spinal injury. All were listed in stable condition.

Typical nigs. Look at what they're doing in Zimbabwe! Where are all the celebrities that used to cry about apartheid now! I ain't surprised with these savages. Let's see what kind of protest Sharpton puts together on this one...yeah, right!

it's really swell that you inbred, nose picking, beer guzzling, trailer trash, pointy headed ku kluxer, cave dwellers want to share your insights with us all.

But you know... your racist slobbering really isn't all that appreciated in this here neck of the woods.

Too bad the folks who run this Web site don't have the sense to remove your foul, hate filled, messages. But then that's "free speech" 'eh? So while we still have the right to free speech... let me say:

KKK, GO AWAY!

"KKK, GO AWAY"? I'm sorry, but I live in the area, and this is all too common, yet seldom reported. I'm surprised that someone around this board posted it. What I'm getting at, John Brown, is that this was a horrendous crime that should be addressed, and your response brings to mind an ostrich with it's head in the sand. I'm half Puerto Rican, and I can tell you that the KKK did not slaughter these 2 poor souls. The murderers were all Black, just like their victims (I've been on the receiving end of "Black Rage" myself...NOT a good thing). I just don't see what's so wrong in bringing this to light.

I just saw this story on WGN News. What type of "people" would do something like this? It was a fucking accident! The girls who were hit are expected to recover. I just don't have words to express my rage...

should this even be dignified with a response?

by garrit Friday, Aug. 02, 2002 at 5:23 AM

maybe not, but I can't help but comment on the absurdity of this post.

what exactly is your point? so a group of black people killed two innocent people, and if they are caught, theyll go to jail. does that represent the entire black race? If so, does that mean all skinny white kids are going to shoot up their school? what about after september 11th, the many nation wide incidences of some redneck going to a 711 and shooting an innocent arab trying to make a living? does that mean all white people are murderous savages as well?

Most importantly, what exactly does this have to do with racism within our police, racism within the drug war, racism within the prison industrial complex? Absolutely nothing.

The argument is not about 'have black people ever commited crimes?' The argument is that if an unarmed black person has to worry about being shot or beaten by a police officer for a crime that a white person would recieve a citation for, theres something wrong. so its probably in your best interest to keep your ignorant trash somewhere it is welcome, because it only influences us 'leftists' more and makes you look like an ass.

but thats free speech, I suppose.

inbreeders on the MIC shouldn't be dignified..

by apache Friday, Aug. 02, 2002 at 2:28 PM

Obviously whoever posted this (probably a cop), intended to provoke with it. Its sad

how stupid cops and rednecks are, and how they are such slaves to their ignorant

one-dimensional mentality.

By this loser's rationale, then we should go after every redneck who has flown over

to Afghanistan to kill innocent civilians, or the Gulf War and Vietnam Vets who

fragged civilians.

If you cops and rednecks would stop sleeping with your sisters and raping young women

maybe you'd grow enough sense to focus your energies on something constructive, like

social protest.

Racism from the bloke who posted the article, or from the perpetrators of the attack? I'll tell you, mate, you haven't felt racism until you've had a couple of keffers kicking your head about. Cheers...

Just another example of the pack mentality as ghetto animals swarm over their pray like wild predators.

They take over neighborhoods and force themselves into our workplace. They infest everything decent people have build over time and contribute nothing in return except for the slums quickly created in the wake of white flight. Schools dumb-down their curriculum and introduce ebonics in an effort to hide the shortcomings of a new gene pool. Laying on their backs, the welfare community breeds like rats to propagate and indoctrinate the next generation of "I'm black so you own me something" activists... while contributing nothing to a civilized world except the sucking sound as they consume the resourses of a country.

You can change a name...nigger, negro, black, african-American, afro-whatever.... you can put lipstick on a pig too.
