    I'm rather surprised this rather horrific story isn't getting more attention from the media. It's not fake news, it wasn't a hoax, it actually happened. But only a handful of papers and broadcasters are talking about it.

    The poor guy was mentally disabled, too.
    That's not surprising at all

      Look this is clearly an awful act that needs to be publicised. But is it just me or has this site been take over by lurkers from the_donald or something? Every other post is just pure vitriol aimed at immigrants, or just race baiting to the max. Was there any real need to capitalise BLACK and WHITE? Shouldn't the focus be on the crime itself and not the racial identify of the perpetrators, which is abundantly clear from the video?

      Stuff like this makes me wonder why this site got rid of down votes.
      Precisely my sentiments! Students on here are surprisingly nationalist/anti-islamic, especially considering students as a whole are very progressive. I think its perhaps due to the following:
      -TSR is white-dominated, and it is white people who carry nationalist sentiment in the West.
      -TSR users are much more introverted than the average student; introverts tend to lack empathy, as they socialise less and have fewer minority friends
      -Users of TSR are more likely to spend longer browsing the internet, and less so on Facebook, so are more likely to encounter Wrongthink, for example on YouTube comments, and alternative media platforms. Ideas that are suppressed in public are expressed on the internet, because the internet allows anonymity.

      However, if downvotes were reintroduced, this section would downvote liberal views; I don't think downvotes would help at all.

      Right you clearly have no idea what you're talking about. I'm not going to go case by case and dissect all the high-profile killings that have happened in America but I assure the majority who were killed weren't criminals. Even if they were, the police are not judge, jury and executioner. Most weren't even armed but they still got shot. My descent is of no consequence to this discussion.



      It's not just you (wish I hadn't even engaged). When someone commits a crime I don't make it a point to highlight their race like "oh that white peadophile who abused those footballers" or whatever else. It's not necessary.
      For a start 16% isn't most.

      Unarmed can be a misleading statement as being armed doesn't mean not a threat to the officers life, if you get shot attacking a police officer and trying to steal his gun you are classed as unarmed but you are a threat to the officers life which he has the right to protect.

      The colour of the victim and perpetrators is important information in this instance considering this was a racially motivated hate crime.

      Race was made relevant when they said "**** white people" as well as making other racist marks towards white people throughout the video.

      Glad his white privilege saved him...
      That makes no physical sense. As in, that's a completely nonsensical sentence.


      My wall broke down when I read that he's apparently special needs and classed as high risk. If this is true my heart really goes out to the man.

      No it's not, it is dominated by Asians because they take their academics much more seriously than whites or blacks. There may be a slight white majority but proportionally whites are probably underrepresented.

        We DO need to put emphasis on black and white because this was a RACIST crime.
        Well.. there are people going round in this world that don't believe black/etc on white crimes can be deemed racist.

        Stuff like this is caused by the racist system that oppresses PoC daily. There's no doubt that this is disgusting but it hasnt came out of nowhere.
        Sorry but nobody is buying the "oppression" argument anymore. Where were the numerous incidents of black on white violence during the days of Jim Crow, when blacks actually were subject to racist and oppressive laws? Why was there no ghetto thug culture back then? Blacks today have the same rights as everybody else under the law, have been given every opportunity under the sun and live a quality of life that exceeds anything their ancestors could have ever dreamed of, there is no excuse for this sort of behavoir.

        If the racist system isn't working for you white people, help us to dismantle it so **** like this doesn't happen to anybody of any background or race.
        No, sort your own problems out. Why the hell should we have to dismantle or lower the standards of society just to placate black disfunctionality? The black "community" (and I use that term very loosely as community usually implies a certain level of social harmony and cohesion, of which there appears to be none whatsoever in black America) needs to take a long hard look at itself before blaming white people and false notions of "racist systems".

          Perhaps; but certainly blacks are underrepresented, and blacks are the main progressives. Asians and whites are pretty similar in most areas, I am not sure this is reflected in political views or not, but I don't see why it wouldn't be.

          Of the high profile killings (the ones there were protests about) only 16% were unarmed? I beg to differ. There are more killings that take place in America and both whites and blacks are killed by the police. The reason why there is no protest about every single one of them is because the police are usually justified in their actions and as you say the police were probably trying to protect their lives as well. It's just that in certain situations that's not the case and no one is held accountable especially when it's a black person who's been killed. For example, the father who was shot in the back 8 times whilst running away with his hands in the air. Yes he might have been wanted for child support payments but don't think that's a good enough reason to kill someone when your life isn't in danger....but I honestly didn't want to get in to a discussion about police brutality in this thread.

          These 4 will get their deserved punishment i'm sure. Not going to get into discussions about sending people to Africa or whatever else.

          What eloquence, you've managed to string three entirely separate and distinct forms of disability together as an attempt at insult.

          Stop typing with your balls.
          Any reason you ignored my post?

          Is CNN dodgy too?

          Well actually yes, research does consistently suggest that we are quicker to reject instances or facts that goes against our beliefs.
          But in this case your wrong, I was simply confused to find that the entire first google result page consisted of websites such as "conservativeoutfitters.com" , if this was in fact real.

          Not knowing how to use Google doesn't mean it's fake.

          That's what you want to think. It's a little hypocritical of you to suggest that I rejected something because of my own socio-political agenda, when that is precisely what you just did in bold. Massive hypocrite.

          You just want to believe that us liberals are so delusional that we aren't willing to accept that people of any race and background can resort to ignorance, malice and violence. We only think it's white people. White men, most probably, right?

          That is what you want to think, so reject whatever I say and piece together the odd ends to fit your belief.

          Clever human.

          When I read this, all I saw was a vulnerable man with learning needs in a state of distress. My first thought was the long term effect this would have on him as a vulnerable individual. Your first thoughts were clearly political and skewed. Well done.

          exactly. they have nothing to look forward to because they're are so disadvantaged in society. Race also plays apart on the war on drugs and in prisons which further leaves black people in horrible situations. If people feel that they have nothing to live for and result to crimes like this, we have clearly messed up somewhere. Let's face it if you leave people disadvantaged in society for too long, they're going to take extreme measures. This is a cry the system is broken.
          Poverty doesn't make you kidnap and torture people, for Christ's sake. I was living below the poverty line for years and not once did I feel pressured to kidnap a guy and scalp him on camera. Stop making excuses for them. These people even had freaking Facebook accounts and iPhones.

          Also, despite non-Hispanic whites in the US being the largest demographic in poverty and outnumbering black Americans about two-to-one in this regard, non-Hispanic whites are only ~10% of gang members (according to the Justice Department) and commit fewer murders in total and less violent crime per capita even when poverty rates are factored in. There's more to this than poverty.

          Wait.. you didn't?!

          I've resisted the urge to kidnap and torture someone my entire life. It's a perfectly natural thought
