If you peruse the archives of SBPDL, you'll notice some in-depth analysis on the racial collapse of Indianapolis (a city dominated by Republican mayors for half a century, yet seeing an incredible racial decline of the white percentage of the population from 1990 - 2010).
|What evil lurks in the heart of man?|
Only days ago, a black girl viciously attacked a white girl and her younger brother in Indianapolis.
For no reason. The white girl being assaulted can be heard yelling, "What did I do? What did I do? No. What did I do? Please stop."
Strangely, the Indianapolis Star doesn't seem to find the race of the attacker or the race of the individual attacked a variable worthy of printing. [Video shows beating of young girl and her little brother, Indy Star, 3-16-15]
Were the races reversed, blah blah blah blah, blah blah blah... Just as the horrific execution of father-to-be Nathan Trapuzzano by a black teenager in Indianapolis last year was completely ignored by virtually all media, so will this racial attack of two white people in Indy by a black person.
It's just The Standard.
Just as news of massive fights at the Circle Center Mall (as usually, they involved black teens) was greeted with a few yawns by the local press in Indy, though the devils truly in the details:
Chaos broke out near Circle Center Mall last night ending with multiple arrests.
Multiple fights broke out between teenagers after crowds were dispersed from the mall.
There were confirmed reports of pepper balls being deployed to help break up the altercations.
Police say they forced teens to a bus stop near Ohio and Meridian Street to get on a bus and get home. There were no reported injuries.
Authorities encourage parents to never just drop their kid off unattended in the downtown area.Pepper balls? Police forced teens to a bus stop?
These are tactics used by soldiers trying to put down a riot, not to subdue mere "teens" fighting at a mall...
But this story never happened in Indianapolis. Only a white person unprepared to be dressed down by a Starbucks barista over white privilege would dare question why the stories of a black girl randomly assaulting a white girl and her brother or hordes of blacks engaging in a battle with police at the Circle Center Mall deserve coverage.
But it gets better. [Family apologizes for suspect in Brookside Park attack, says teen suffers from PTSD, Fox59, 3-17-15]:
The mother and grandmother of a 14-year-old girl accused of beating a teenager with brass knuckles in downtown Indianapolis hours after she is suspected of an attacked on another teen and a young boy in a city park want to apologize to the victims and explain their child’s behavior.
“Actually I know there is something more going on with [her], so i’m not surprised,” said Shawn Taylor, the suspect’s mother. “She has been in counseling before. I mean, this is not our first rodeo.”
In a cell phone video that has been viewed around the world, the teen is seen punching and kicking another girl and then turning on her victim’s five-year-old brother.
“I was shocked,” said Shelia Taylor, “because I was thinking my granddaughter went over the edge. That’s how I felt.”
The beating in Brookside Park occurred several hours before Metro Police claim the suspect was involved in another fight outside Circle Centre in downtown Indianapolis.
She is charged with a level 5 felony of battery with a deadly weapon for using brass knuckles on another teenage girl during the Saturday night fight.
The teen’s Instagram page features a photograph of brass knuckles and a warning for viewers to, “Not try me.”
“Ever since she has been like ten we have gone through Behavior Corps,” said the suspect’s mother. “She’s in services now, so I mean, I’ve been trying to get extra help.”
Shawn Taylor said her daughter suffers from diagnosed post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other ailments.
“[She] has been needing help,” said Shelia Taylor. “We have asked for help. My daughter has paperwork stating different places where she has gone and asked people for help.”
Taylor said the teen was remorseful when she spoke with her granddaughter at the Marion County Juvenile Center.
“You could see it in her heart. I said, ‘Baby, you can really see what you have done?’ She said, ‘Yes, m’am.’ I said, ‘It’s really starting to come home to you now ain’t it?’ All she could think of was, ‘Grandma I black out when this happens. I just black out.’ That’s what she told me and tears rolled because it really hurt.”Indianapolis.
Truly, a city on the verge of a Ferguson-style situation unfolding before our eyes. It's not a question of if; it's a question of when.
