Knockout Game and Black mob violence in Denver.
The racial beatings are back in Denver. Just like last year, the year before, and the two years before that.
Then, like now, the alleged perpetrators are black. The victims are not. This time, however, police told anyone who wanted to know about the pattern of racial violence. And how at least one victim said he and his friend were part of the Knockout Game.
Some Denver media thought it was important to report the description. Others, however, followed the lead of the Denver Post, which said the attacks were “random” and refused to report the race of the alleged predators.
Also like the Post, most local media did not report Denver’s history of recent racial violence, some under the name of the Knockout Game.
The most recent attacks happened downtown, New Year’s Eve. Police say Nick Lloyd was one of at least four victims. Lloyd “was waiting for a ride with a friend near 20th and Market streets when they were both punched in the face,” said the local ABC affiliate, “The blow fractured his face in several places and broke his jaw on both sides.”
“Basically my whole cheek is caved in,” Lloyd said, pointing to his swollen and bruised face.
The public did not become aware of the pattern of violence until five days later because some of the victims did not come forward right away, police told ABC. “All we have is assaults by black males, so we need more details. That’s why we’re asking for the community’s help,” said Denver Police Department Sonny Jackson.
Denver has been the scene of dozens of examples of black mob violence over the last four years. At least one media outlet remembered, at least partially:
“In 2009 and 2011 there were a series of attacks in the downtown Denver area where African-Americans were targeting whites and Hispanics,” said the NBC affiliate. “According to police reports, in the New Year’s Day cases, the victims were white men and they reported their attackers were black.”
One week later, four black people were arrested after a “large fight” and charged with assaulting two people downtown.
In June 2011, a group of black people attacked white people in the same area, at the same time of day, but they used baseball bats.
The next day, June 26, a couple was in a downtown alley near their vehicle when a group of men walked up and “assaulted them with a baseball bat and demanded money,” a police report said. The robbers grabbed the woman’s purse and ran to a waiting car, police said. The attackers are not nice people,” Jackson told the ABC affiliate.
Police describe the attackers as four to five black men, ages 18 to 21 years.
But the big attacks, the ones people in Denver remember the best, began in the summer of 2009. Four months later, police arrested 38 black people for the assault of 28 non-black people.
The ABC affiliate did not flinch when it reported the details of some of the attacks in a story called: “Black Gangs Vented Hatred For Whites In Downtown Attacks.”
“I hate you f—ing white people,” said a black woman in a large group of black men, according to the victim who was beaten up as he and three buddies left a (downtown) bar after midnight on Aug. 30. “F—- you, white boys.”
“Why do you hate white people?” the man recalled asking. “That’s when I got hit. They beat the crap out of me,” he added, saying that 15 to 20 men beat him to the ground. “They just swarmed you,” said the man who curled up on the ground to shield his face.”You basically just had to protect yourself and hope they didn’t kill you.”
Many of the attacks were on video. The report continued: One suspect, Denita Mayfield told police: “They all brag about beating up white people.”
During an Aug. 2 attack, suspect Allen Ford told police his alleged accomplice, Xavier Francis, tossed a white man through a glass window behind the Bash nightclub.
“I seen him pick the little white boy up and throw him through the glass,” Ford told police, according to court records. Police obtained security camera video showing the victim fly through the window, said ABC.
“In the more than two dozen attacks, victims’ injuries included a skull fracture as well as broken noses and eye sockets when they were blindsided by punches that often knocked them unconscious. One man was so savagely attacked that he was hospitalized in a coma for a while,”
“Several of the 38 young male and female suspects arrested by police recently said the gangs often targeted lone white and Hispanic men because they didn’t “fight back” and they had money, iPods and other valuable gadgets that attackers coveted.”
After the arrests, it was revealed the police knew about the pattern of racial violence for at least three months, but did not tell the public. Said one victim: “I’m kind of upset that (police) didn’t make it public,” said the Westminster beating victim. “I would have been more vigilant. It would have made people a lot more on guard.”
That’s what the victim said when he thought the assaults were over. Only they were not. By June 1 of the next year, police arrested 8 more black people “after downtown attacks continue” on white people, said the NBC affiliate.
One of the men arrested was among the 38 arrested for the previous year’s racial violence. He had been convicted, but was back on the streets because he only received probation.
Police described several of the 2010 attacks as “unusual” because they featured a black man attacking a white person for no apparent reason.
“It seems unusual there was no confrontation,” police Lt. Matt Murray told the NBC affiliate. “They didn’t know each other and we are looking at that and saying that’s pretty unusual and some of these other ones have the same characteristics.”

Summer of 2010:
These are just some of the hundreds of examples of racial violence and lawlessness in more than 80 cities around the country as documented in my book: White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence to America.
Thomas Sowell said : ”Reading Colin Flaherty’s book made painfully clear to me that the magnitude of this problem is greater than I had discovered from my own research. He documents both the race riots and the media and political evasions in dozens of cities.” – National Review.
