Not a Hate Crime

This story is one of hundreds Colin Flaherty planned to publish in a book before his death. American Renaissance will post one a week.

I’m a cop. One time, I arrived at a white man’s house after he called 911 to report an assault. The victim had lumps all over his head and his legs were cut up. It was clear he’d been beaten into the ground. His story went like this: He was walking down the street, pushing his two-year-old son in a stroller. He came upon five black teenagers blocking the sidewalk, and asked them to move. Two of them kicked the stroller. The man went around them, but the whole group then followed him all the way home. When he arrived, the five blacks went into his garage, tackled him to the ground, and began kicking and punching him in front of his child. The victim was embarrassed to report all this, and stressed that what had happened was not a hate crime.
