An early report at LU about the identity of the white victim of black mob violence at a Memphis shopping center indicated that he was a 25-year-old male. A report by Todd Starnes of Fox News suggests the victim was actually 17. Although his identity remains a secret, the name of his father appears at the beginning of the Starnes report:
Mark Sauser is a man not prone to show his emotions. But when he saw the video, he wept.
The video showed a rampaging mob attacking people indiscriminately in the parking lot of a Kroger supermarket in Memphis, Tennessee. A bag boy saw the advancing crowd and sought shelter.
He tried to escape but within a matter of moments the young man found himself swept up in the violence and chaos.
The article goes on to note that the youth ultimately lost consciousness. adding that so far eleven assailants have been arrested, all teens, most of them facing felony charges.
Yet, police refused to characterize the attack as a hate crime because not all of the victims are white.
The boy who was beaten is a senior in high school who builds computers as a hobby. He went to work there bagging groceries to earn money for college. He is expected to make a full recovery.
Is that why race-baiting loudmouth Al Sharpton hasn’t breathed a word about the assault, or is the real reason that the incident doesn’t comport with his definition of crime?
