Charleston, SC: Mob Of Black Teens Rampage Through City
Guest post by DMartyr
A large group of black teens rampaged through Charleston neighborhoods, targeting innocent people early Sunday.
The Post and Courier reported:
As many as 60 teens were roaming Charleston streets attacking pedestrians and drivers early Sunday, witnesses told police dispatchers in 911 calls released Tuesday.
All the teens were black, according to witnesses, and all but one of the people attacked were white. Still, it’s unclear if the attacks were racially motivated or sparked by the unrest in Baltimore, which followed the recent shooting death of Walter Scott, a black man, by a white North Charleston police officer. […]
Terror could be heard in the voices of many of the callers, including a man who called from his car and said he was being blocked by about 50 teens.
“They just smacked my car,” he told the operator. “I’m flooring it in reverse. This is just ridiculous. … I’m getting the hell out of here, man. They just smacked another car.”
He said a group began beating a man.
Ironically, the group of teens had just left their local YWCA, which carries the motto, “Empowering Women and Eliminating Racism.” Only one arrest has been made so far.
