Witnesses: Racist Attacks Against Whites at Wisconsin State Fair
In both articles, authors interviewed numerous witnesses, who all said the same thing. Here are some highlights.
Eric, an Iraqi war veteran, provided the most detailed description of the action. He said it “rated right up there” with what he saw in combat, concluding that only the National Guard could have handled this. He reported that police were ineffective and slow to respond. (Eric, meet Castle Rock v Gonzales: Police have no duty to protect you.)
Numerous witnesses reported people being pulled off motorcycles and beaten. A white youth was beaten and left lying in the street, then a female dropped a construction sign on him. After another woman got out of her car and tried to intervene, her husband “screamed at her to get back into the car.” Then the mob threw the victim “into the bushes like he was a piece of garbage.”
A concession worker reported a large mob rampaging through the midway, damaging stalls and driving away customers.
One thing witnesses were unanimous about: Black youth attacked, and made race-oriented threats and comments, only towards Caucasians.
Another Black-on-White Attack
In what seems to be a weekly occurrence, a high school football game became the scene for another violent attack, this time with a black football player attacking a white football referee. From the Sarasota Herald-Tribune:The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office has identified four suspects in the pummeling of a referee at a youth football game Saturday, and all four are cooperating with authorities, according to a Sheriff’s Office spokesman.About 30 seconds into the video, you see a number of blacks attacking a white official, and then a black football player, in full gear except for helmet, charges in full speed and tackles the official. Video shows a number of black officials, who were not attacked. There’s been a recurrence of black-on-white attacks lately.“The video speaks for itself,” Sarasota County Sheriff’s Col. Steve Burns said. “It was disturbing.”
