I am sure that everyone is familiar with the violent act of the Knockout Game, which has primarily been black on white, until recently when in Houston, Texas a white youth gave an elderly black man a “knockout” punch that put him in the hospital. Conrad Barrett has been charged with not only assault, but by the federal government, courtesy of “Fast-N-Furious” US Department of Justice who has added federal hate crime charges.
Of all the cases, this is the first time the knockout game crime has been overseen by the Department of Justice and labeled a hate crime. There are numerous videos of people being video-taped committing the crime and several have been put in custody – but to date, not one of them have been charged the federal hate crime which is, if found guilty, imprisonment for not more than 10 years, fined in accordance with this title, or both. [18 U.S. Code § 249 – Hate Crime Act]
The following PJTV video is ZoNation, [Alfonzo Rachel]which gives a responsible view from African American who blames the kids actions on liberal-progressive political-social philosophy.
The major objection against hate crime laws is that government via progressive-liberals would only use it against the majority ethnic group of Americans. Hate crime was not just to protect certain groups, but the American code is: justice for ALL.
Because of the major possibility of being abused, there should be no hate crime laws; as we can see the results of unfairness - the word that progressive-liberals love to use.
Every year America celebrates Martin Luther King, but generations later, the African American community has forgotten what one of the enlightening things he said:
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
Racial hatred occurs on both sides of the fence of ethnicity and skin pigmentation. The only way to stop such hatred is that both sides work together as unified Americans should. To the federal government, especially under the "great unifier" Barack Hussein Obama, the Department of Justice has clearly sent a message - if you are white and play the "Knockout Game", we'll prosecute; if you are black and play the game [who invented it] - you will be subject to local and state laws.
Coming from the political fairness group, this is profound hypocrisy at its height.
No matter what skin pigmentation you have or what ethnic or gender group you belong to: the "knockout game" is wrong and barbaric.
If this is a mirror of our society, We the People need to cure the sickness by improving family and social values and raising children to be responsible, protect the constitution, and seek the United States as a unified nation where all citizens are equal.
