A recent murder in Syracuse, NY has started something of a furore over the difference between bland, politically-correct police and media reports, and the true facts of the matter. The basic story is outwardly straightforward. Two teens have been charged with manslaughter following the death of a bystander whom they (and others in their group) attacked without warning or provocation in a game known as 'Knockout'. A news report quoting the police may be found here.
A local blogger, Matt Forney, has a much more informative report. Here's an excerpt.
Here are the facts, for those of you keeping score:
- These “teenagers” were black. Whenever a news story fails to mention the race of the perp, it’s because they’re either black or Latino. This attack happened in the South Side, a run-down, primarily black ghetto where convenience store owners have to put bars on their windows to deter theft and the only booming businesses are pawn shops and payday loan sharks. Put two and two together.
- The man they killed, Michael Daniels, was white.
- These black teenagers were playing Knockout King, a game where you go around finding white people to beat up and put in the hospital. It’s also called “polar bear hunting”, and you can figure out why.
- There are literally hundreds of documented cases across the U.S. in the past 5-6 years of black teenagers swarming on hapless white people and putting them in the hospital for kicks, sometimes even killing them. Ex: Carter Strange.
Additionally, as commenters at the Post-Standard pointed out, the story’s author, Ken Sturtz, omitted the graphic details of what these “teenagers” did to Daniels. They didn’t just beat him to death, they popped his eyeball out of its socket and laughed about it.

I've written before about the changing urban self-defense environment and the growing need to be able to defend yourself. These reports from Syracuse are merely the latest in a very long list of them. The problem of black-on-other-races violence is becoming more and more acute wherever groups of feral, unemployed youth gather in our major cities. It's not confined to one city, or one state, or one region; it's nation-wide.
I'm neither interested in nor concerned with whether or not it's politically correct to speak about this. The facts speak for themselves. Be warned, and conduct yourselves accordingly.
