Would you call the newspaper in Norfolk VA liberal though, as the article claimed?

better to have and not need, than really, really need and not have.

same reason I carry a concealed handgun.

edit:
and yes, I have been robbed at gunpoint, in the tiny little town of 2500 where everyone knew everyone. Violence can happen anywhere at anytime.

I cannot carry everyday because of parking at work. But, every other free minute I have a pistol in my possession. Especially when going out. My Glock Fo-Five carries a a few....And I leave two full magazines in the car.

If this was Me? There'd be a crowd of dead people around me....Kids or Not

They ought to find that cops information, and make his life a little more difficult.

One more reason why I love living in Utah. Lots of guns, lots of conservative folks and very few . One of the biggest reasons I hated living in Vegas was all the ghetto hood rats who couldn't make it in L.A. so they infested NV. Tons of flash mob style beatings and robbery going on in Vegas, no thank you.

This statement from the officer is really sad

Sounds like the police have given up.



I'm sure sharpton is on his way.

Its pretty sad that the media have gone from a news source source that should report all news to an entertainment source and only cover what appeals to whatever agenda that particular news organization has
The tools to deal with these situations have been remove from cops and citizens. What would you expect other than the cops to give up?

Why? That's already been done obviously.

What else would you have had him do?

Beyond the obvious with the story, she got a busy signal on 911 and took 3 tries to get through? That's fucked in itself.

This happens in our little hillbilly town the other day.

http://dailymail.com/policebrfs/2012...edium=facebook

Charleston detectives are looking for two men who robbed and beat a man unconscious in front of his girlfriend and children downtown.

The incident happened about 10 p.m. Saturday near the BrickStreet Insurance building. A 45-year-old man was leaving Tidewater Grill with his girlfriend and his 9- and 13-yearold children, said Sgt. Bobby Eggleton, assistant chief of detectives.

Two men approached the group and started making rude comments, Eggleton said. The descriptions are fairly vague: Both were described as heavyset black men in their 20s.

"We don't have a whole lot to go on," Eggleton said.

The man asked the two suspects to stop making the comments, but the situation got worse. The two then attacked the man, knocking him down and kicking him repeatedly in the head and face, Eggleton said.

"He was beaten pretty badly," he said.

The man suffered a severe concussion. He also received facial lacerations. The suspects then dug into his pockets and stole $30, Eggleton said.

The suspects did not hurt the woman or the children. The victim, who has asked police not to release his identity, was taken to Charleston Area Medical Center's General Hospital. He was released from the hospital on Sunday, Eggleton said. Officers do not believe he suffered any long-term injuries from the beating.

Eggleton said the victim did nothing to antagonize the situation and acted as many people would have.

"I can't say he did anything that any other man wouldn't have done," Eggleton said. "If I'm coming out of the mall, and someone says something crude to me and my family, I'm going to say something back.

"And I wouldn't expect to get beaten for it," he said.

Eggleton called the attack a random act of "senseless violence." He does not believe the pair of suspects planned on robbing the man until he was unconscious.

"Such cowardly acts against people and their families are just uncalled for," he said.

Eggleton also said he was very surprised by the crime and where it occurred.

"But even more than surprising me, this really disgusts me," he said.

Officers are asking that anyone with information contact the Criminal Investigation Division at 304-348-6480.

Officers have looked for video surveillance tapes but have been unsuccessful so far, he said.

"But we're looking for these guys and I sure hope we find them," Eggleton said.

Eggleton said he has discussed the issue with Charleston Town Center security. Mall security personnel will be extra vigilant, he said.

Here is the opinion piece that was published in their paper 2 weeks after nothing was said.
http://hamptonroads.com.nyud.net/201...and-brambleton

Quote:
By Michelle Washington
The Virginian-Pilot
© May 1, 2012

Wave after wave of young men surged forward to take turns punching and kicking their victim.

The victim's friend, a young woman, tried to pull him back into his car. Attackers came after her, pulling her hair, punching her head and causing a bloody scratch to the surface of her eye. She called 911. A recording told her all lines were busy. She called again. Busy. On her third try, she got through and, hysterical, could scream only their location.

Church and Brambleton. Church and Brambleton. Church and Brambleton.

It happened four blocks from where they work, here at The Virginian-Pilot.

–––––

Update: Virginian-Pilot editor responds


–––––

Two weeks have passed since reporters Dave Forster and Marjon Rostami - friends to me and many others at the newspaper - were attacked on a Saturday night as they drove home from a show at the Attucks Theatre. They had stopped at a red light, in a crowd of at least 100 young people walking on the sidewalk. Rostami locked her car door. Someone threw a rock at her window. Forster got out to confront the rock-thrower, and that's when the beating began.

Neither suffered grave injuries, but both were out of work for a week. Forster's torso ached from blows to his ribs, and he retained a thumb-sized bump on his head. Rostami fears to be alone in her home. Forster wishes he'd stayed in the car.

Many stories that begin this way end much worse. Another colleague recently wrote about the final defendant to be sentenced in the beating death of 19-year-old James Robertson in East Ocean View five years ago. In that case, a swarm of gang members attacked Robertson and two friends. Robertson's friends got away and called for help; police arrived to find Robertson's stripped, swollen corpse.

Forster and Rostami's story has not, until today, appeared in this paper. The responding officer coded the incident as a simple assault, despite their assertions that at least 30 people had participated in the attack. A reporter making routine checks of police reports would see "simple assault" and, if the names were unfamiliar, would be unlikely to write about it. In this case, editors hesitated to assign a story about their own employees. Would it seem like the paper treated its employees differently from other crime victims?

More questions loomed.

Forster and Rostami wondered if the officer who answered their call treated all crime victims the same way. When Rostami, who admits she was hysterical, tried to describe what had happened, she says the officer told her to shut up and get in the car. Both said the officer did not record any names of witnesses who stopped to help. Rostami said the officer told them the attackers were "probably juveniles anyway. What are we going to do? Find their parents and tell them?"

The officer pointed to public housing in the area and said large groups of teenagers look for trouble on the weekends. "It's what they do," he told Forster.

Could that be true? Could violent mobs of teens be so commonplace in Norfolk that police and victims have no recourse?

Police spokesman Chris Amos said officers often respond to reports of crowds fighting; sirens are usually enough to disperse the group. On that night, he said, a report of gunfire in a nearby neighborhood prompted the officer to decide getting Forster and Rostami off the street quickly made more sense than remaining at the intersection. The officer gave them his card and told them to call later to file a report.

The next day, Forster searched Twitter for mention of the attack.

One post chilled him.

"I feel for the white man who got beat up at the light," wrote one person.

"I don't," wrote another, indicating laughter. "(do it for trayvon martin)"

Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teen, died after being shot by a community watch captain with white and Hispanic parents, George Zimmerman, in Florida.

Forster and Rostami, both white, suffered a beating at the hands of a crowd of black teenagers.

Was either case racially motivated? Were Forster and Rostami beaten in some kind of warped, vigilante retribution for a killing 750 miles away, a person none of them knew? Was it just bombast? Is a beating funny, ever?

Here's why their story is in the paper today. We cannot allow such callousness to continue unremarked, from the irrational, senseless teenagers who attacked two people just trying to go home, from the police officer whose conduct may have been typical but certainly seems cold, from the tweeting nitwits who think beating a man in Norfolk will change the death of Trayvon Martin.

How can we change it if we don't know about it? How can we make it better if we look away?

Are we really no better than this?

It's the republicans fault. They need more taxes for more welfare, but the republicans refuse. More handouts would solve the problem.

Mall security will be extra vigilant? Well problem solved then.

Move along, no worries. Nothing to see here.

Actually it is precisely their responsibility.

Someone is trying to kill me, it's all I can do to get my hands on a phone and call 911 then get a fucking busy signal? Fuck that shit. If the phone traffic to 911 is so great they either need more operators or really need to fucking clamp down on crime. And telling victims "that's what they do" sure as hell isn't going to help solve the latter.
