On Independence Day, a mob of about 40 black people beat a white man so severely that he laid unconscious on the ground while police tried to rescue him. Police refused to label it a hate crime, but something big happened, which changed everything.

In the initial incident report, Cincinnati Police Officer Alicia Essert described the heinous assault as “anti-white” after witnessing the circumstances surrounding it, according to Cincinnati.com. Despite Essert’s report, Capt. Mike Neville backed away from the crime being racially motivated and called Essert’s description of the crime a “mistake,” which he would soon find was a mistake.

Cops Refuse Hate Crime Charges In Mob Beating Of White Man, Then Something Big Happened

As Mad World News previously reported, 27-year-old Christopher McKnight was in the wrong place at the wrong time, after a hip hop concert ended Saturday evening and he attempted to board a bus the same time as concert goers, but apparently he “bumped into” someone. That’s all it took, and soon McKnight would find himself in a bloody heap on the sidewalk after a mob savagely beat him until riot police were finally able to intervene and stop the pummeling.

Two officers were injured in the incident, and in total, seven people were arrested. However, not a single one was arrested in connection with the horrific assault on McKnight, and all talk about a hate crime was quickly downplayed by police brass.

The department’s denial of a racially motivated crime sparked widespread outrage and anger at the obvious double standard in how crimes are prosecuted, and on Wednesday, the case took a turn in the right direction. Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell changed his mind about what type of charges should be filed and said he’ll be recommending Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters pursue hate crime charges against those responsible for McKnight’s beating.

“The Police department acknowledges there has been a tremendous amount of public comment and outrage in connection with this incident,” police spokeswoman Tiffaney Hardy said in a press release. “The Police Department is sympathetic but at the same time asks the public to remain patient while we work with the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office to properly adjudicate these matters.”

Hardy also appeared to backtrack from Neville’s prior comments which called Essert’s report a “mistake.”

“In many cases, a hate/bias relationship between the offender(s) and suspect(s) may not be easily apparent at the time of, or even shortly after the commission of the offense,” the release said. “Often, hate/bias elements become evident only after thorough investigation and review of the available evidence.”

McKnight suffered a broken nose, concussion, and bruising from the beating. He was hospitalized for a day to be treated, then released Sunday evening. As a result of the incident, Cincinnati has canceled the remainder of the Saturday night hip hop concerts at Fountain Square.

I can’t believe it took almost a week, plus massive public outcry, for police to finally call this a hate crime, especially since we know that if the situation were reversed, those would be the very first words uttered by police, the media, and every race hustler across America.

Even more pathetic than the lackluster response from police is the lack of media attention this abhorrent assault is getting, and we all know exactly why that is. Meanwhile, armed thugs assault police officers and get shot, then they’re glorified as some sort of hood rat angel by the media. Absolutely disgusting.

  1. Wait a minute…I think I missed this one. And it was in Cincy? When did Obama stop his nuclear arms talks with Iran to address this one? I didn’t see Al Sharpton in Cincy did I? Jessie Jackson…where are you???? OH! You guys didn’t say anything because it was black on WHITE violence. You only come out of the woodwork when it’s the other way around, right? Gotcha! Sorry for the confusion!

  2. Former AG holder said…. (mar 2, 2011)
    As reported and applauded by Politico, Holder announced Tuesday that he was fed up with listening to whining whites who claim the justice department deliberately blocks investigations of black on white racism. Predictably, the Establishment media sides with Holder.

    “Think about that,” Holder said. “When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, to compare what people subjected to that with what happened in Philadelphia, which was inappropriate .. .to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line for my people,” said Holder, who is black.
    Holder noted that his late sister-in-law, Vivian Malone Jones, helped integrate the University of Alabama.
    “To compare that kind of courage, that kind of action, to say some Black Panther incident is of greater concern to us, historically, I think just flies in the face of history,” Holder said with evident exasperation.”
    So the obvious takeaway from this is that some racism is worse than others. Some racist injustice is worthy of prosecution, other racism is not. Apparently, whites simply haven’t suffered enough. They don’t deserve legal protection. So, any injustices committed against white people should be swept under the rug. It’s not worth Eric Holder’s time.

    Then he said: that white people haven’t “suffered enough” and therefore can’t be victims of hate-crimes.

    Holder’s statements are completely sadistic, and they betray his motives. He has a score to settle, and by his figure whites have a lot more suffering to endure before they have a right to expect justice from the “Justice Department.” Satisfying vendettas is for Mob Bosses, not the US Attorney General’s Office.

    The Establishment media’s silence regarding his racist statements demonstrates agreement and approval. Such hypocrisy. Such shame. Such racism.

    Racists are those who set out to destroy the nation’s white identity, that is racist.
