New: Black mob beats its way through downtown Louisville

Black mob beats its way through downtown Louisville

And the local paper does not have an excuse for not giving the full details: Some of the violence happened in its parking lot.

This is just one of dozen similar incidents throughout the country over the last WEEK! More on that later. To Louisville:

 PREVIEW of an article at WND.


Ten years ago, Louisville media could have gotten away with this: A group of 10 “roving teens … got into a fight .. with two girls.”  Then it happened a few more times over two hours. The violence was “random” and no one had a description, said the local press.

But Sunday, less than 24 hours after a mob of 30 black people roamed through the downtown, beating, laughing, destroying property, sending three seriously hurt people to the hospital and walking away laughing, people in Louisville are asking two questions: Why is black mob violence such a problem there? And why is local media so afraid to tell the truth about it?

Samantha Craven saw one of the episodes:

“I seriously just witnessed a man get beat (almost) to death on Broadway right by 4th street live,” she wrote at the Wave 3 news site. “He was jumped by AT LEAST 30 kids!! There was blood everywhere… This is the craziest shit I’ve ever seen in my life! I’m shaking… I wanna cry… “



Later, via email, Craven described the attackers as black: “As we drove away, we noticed the group still walking laughing and carrying on a few blocks down.”

WHAS TV News described one of the assaults as a “fight.”  But it was hardly that.
“It was a group of BLACK TEENS,” said Craig Roberts of Louisville. “Wonder why they wont mention that.”

The first beat down happened at the popular Big Four Bridge, a converted railroad trestle that is now a bike and pedestrian attraction at the recently redeveloped Louisville waterfront.  Amy Reid described what happened to her father, mother and children:

“These incidents actually started around 7 pm when these vicious little hoodlums attacked my 61-year old father on the Big Four Bridge, in front of my mother and 2 small children, while they screamed for help and he pleaded for them to stop,” Reid posted in the comments section of the Courier-Journal. “Bystanders just stood and watched it happen, no one would help. LMPD arrived, WOULD NOT LET THEM FILE A REPORT AND WOULD NOT HELP THEM GET OFF THE BRIDGE TO THEIR CAR SAFELY!  My girls are still traumatized and cannot understand why someone would want to hurt their grandpa.”

Reid’s family had to walk past their laughing attackers to return to their car.

Some of the violence took place in and around the parking lot of the major daily newspaper in Louisville, the Courier Journal. The black mob vandalized several cars there. It is not clear if anyone was working at the Courier Journal then, because the newspaper added few details of the violence to its initial reports.

Or if the editors knew, they did not say.

Former Louisville police detective Dale Rhodes has a hunch which it is.  He took to Facebook to put the racial violence in perspective. Black on white crime is a fact of life in Louisville. As is its denial.

“Over a period of about 5 weeks (I think in the summer of 1990) there were at least 20 incidents where white people were assaulted by a gang of blacks numbering anywhere from 5 to 15,” Rhodes wrote. “Many of the victims were severely beaten, some left for dead and others left with life-long career ending injuries. All the incidents involved black on white crime, every single one. Yet we were ordered, if asked, to tell reporters and the media there was no evidence to indicate these crimes were racially motivated. I personally witnessed commanding officers being far less than truthful with the media regarding these incidents.”

Even a cursory check of Google reveals the black mob violence and black on white crime in Louisville never really stopped since then. “The incidents to which I refer are just the tip of the iceberg,” said the former police officer.

Writing in the Louisville Examiner in 2011, Thomas McAdam exposed Louisville’s “dirty little secret;”  Sadly, this idyllic Urban Oasias is fast devolving into a target-rich environment for roving bands of thugs,” McAdam wrote. “The dirty little secret that City Hall wants to hide from the public is the fact that Waterfront Park is not a very safe place for families, particularly after dark.”

McAdam went on to describe an incident where 200 black people beat a disabled person at a bus stop after a minor league baseball game. He went to the hospital with a fractured skull. “But just how dangerous is it down at Waterfront Park?” McAdam asks. We may never know because “city officials hide the dangers from the public.”

But today there are too many victims, too many witnesses, too many videos and too many people who want answers for that to continue forever.

Even so, some in Louisville are determined to ignore the racial violence. “Black mob violence trend,” snarked James Kemp at the Courier-Journal. “Fox News much?”

Others chirped in with accusations of racism for those who noticed the black on white violence.

But more and more people in Louisville are less and less willing to accept how newspapers, TV stations, police officials and liberal activists refuse to confront the reality of black mob violence and black on white crime. “Notice our police chief will address this MONDAY – after the really important stuff like the NCAA tournament is over for the week,” said one Louisville resident and WND reader. “ Make sure you read the comments with each article.  Interesting, I think, how Louisville residents have a more realistic stance on what is happening.”

And that cannot come too soon for some: “It’s happening,” said Morris Willis. “And if you deny it, ignore it, or try to hide it, the end result WILL be violent retaliation by those who feel victimized or fear being victims.”
