Three Philadelphia thugs attacked a taxi on Saturday night. The pulled the white passenger from the car and beat him on the street. Then they beat the taxi driver.
Philly.com reported:

IN A HORRIFIC assault in Center City on Saturday night, three teenagers who were spouting racial slurs pulled a man out of a cab to beat him. And when the cabdriver intervened to stop the assault, the teens turned their rage on him, police said yesterday.

About 8:25 p.m., a cab was stopped at a red light at 15th and Chestnut streets when two 17-year-old boys and a 15-year-old boy approached and started calling the male passenger in the back seat racially derogatory names, police said.

The boys then threw an unknown liquid at the cab before they opened the door, pulled the passenger out and started to pummel him, police said.

When the cabbie got out of the car to see what was going on, the passenger ran away and the teens turned on the cabbie. They punched him in the face, kicked him and threw a liquid on him, police said.

Despite being outnumbered, the cabbie grabbed a tire iron from his trunk, at which time the teens ran away. The driver flagged down a police officer, and the three boys were arrested. They were charged as juveniles with aggravated assault and related offenses.

The cabbie suffered an injury to his right eye and had abdominal and side pain, police said. The passenger remains unidentified.

Police said the three teens were black and the cabbie and passenger were white. Police did not immediately know whether the teens would or could face hate-crime charges.

Another man was murdered in Philadelphia earlier this month when he hailed a taxi by the Liberty Bell.

  1. Crime is crime – let them do the time.

  2. Fight back WIMPS, Fight back!

  3. It’s what these cockroaches do. Kindly do not suggest being unarmed against them represents a civilized or a decent society. OK, free speech. Suggest away. Caution, however for various “leaden” answers when with any attempts to go any further…

  4. Hate crime? Al Sharpton will be in Philadelphia by Wednesday protesting for the police to arrest the cabbie and his passenger.

  5. oops, sorry, strike “when”….

  6. If we had only known, we woulda picked our own cotton,

  7. I am surprized Obma hasn’t already made speech about how the passenger and bus driver acted stupidly. Come to think of it, maybe they did act stupidly, maybe they should have purchased one of those new GPS apps that helps you to avoid dangerous areas. Or maybe they should have been strapped.

  8. Remco Kimber nailed it.

  9. I grew up in Philadelphia in the 40s through 1960s and every time I got back for a visit it is worse and worse—the urban areas I grew up in as a young child ghettos, the suburban neighborhoods I grew up in trashed—burnt out, boarded up houses, razor wire, half unoccupied shopping districts with the major stores fled.

    Downtown Philadelphia, vibrant, busy, somewhat gritty but still up-scale in my youth, with well-dressed, affluent people filling the streets, is now a place where all the major stories have fled and taken their customers with them, many empty storefronts and those open selling cheap electronics, imitation gold jewelry, “big momma” clothes, and wigs, and many among the crowds of often sloppily dressed shoppers have a grey-faced, often grungy look, there are more and more beggars on street corners, and street people muttering to themselves as they push stolen shopping carts within sight of City Hall—and over all this– a feeling of danger in the air. And on a visit a few years ago I happened to see an article that helpfully included a map showing how downtown Philadelphia was divided up into various gang territories.

    This is increasingly hostile and dangerous territory.

  10. Anxiously awaiting the press release that AG Holder will be prosecuting this as a hate crime.

  11. P.S.–Philadelphia–like almost all of our major cities–has been under continuous Democratic rule for many decades, in the case of Philadelphia, for something like 60 straight years, and the current Black, Democratic Mayor has the very appropriate last name of “Nutter.”

  12. Remember Black Youth Flash mobs last summer all over the country. . Especially in Philly that even Mayor Nutter had to finally speak out. .no coincidence folks. .

    these are “Holder’s People” doing what they have been taught to do come election day 2012. . and the days leading up to it. .

    Just like the OWS chumps led by Obama buddy Devid Felton (with Soros Money), and Goonions too. . .

    Be prepared. .be VERY PREPARED.

    Nothing will be done to these Black Thugs by Holder, just like nothing was done by Holder regarding Black Panthers blocking voting places (yes in Philly) and intimidating voters

  13. Draft Remco Kimber for President.

  14. Another example of hate crime. Holder will probably set them free as they are his people.

  15. Are these the “My People” that Holder has referred to? I wonder if these perps know the BLACK PANTHERS that patrolled the Election precincts that Holder refused to prosecute??

    HOPE AND CHANGE.

    Is this what you LIBTARDS were so looking forward too.

  16. President Obama praised the three young men after the attack. These fine young gentlemen know exactly what fairness looks like and when the white man gets hurt, it’s only fair! It’s an Obama World!

  17. last I checked you can carry conceal in Philly….people start arming yourselves…time to take action when presented with such a scenario…

  18. Racially derogatory names, different skin pigmentation quotients between attackers and victim? Key question: Skin-tone of attackers vs skin tone of victim?

    Oh, you don’t say…..well, in that case, nothing to see here. Move along now, move along.

    In today’s national Animal Farm some pig(mentation)s are more equal than others.
