Black Obama Fan Slapped White Policeman

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

Elsewhere in city, gunfire, and a cop gets slapped

November 6, 2008


Not everyone behaved themselves when celebrating U.S. President-elect Barack Obama’s historic win Tuesday night.

Some fired gunshots, a felon accused cops of arresting him “because a black man won for president” and a teenager standing with throngs of passionate revelers used the opportunity to slap a police officer, Cook County prosecutors said.

“White bitches. F— McCain. You white police can’t do nothing,” 19-year-old Celita Hart taunted officers as she stood with a throng of Obama supporters in the 6900 block of South Western Avenue, Assistant State’s Attorney Lorraine Scaduto said in a court Wednesday. At some point, authorities said, Hart left the crowd, which had been chanting “Obama, Obama,” walked up to a squad car, and smacked a male officer in the face.

Hart was one of a half-dozen charged in Election Night-related arrests. A slew of others facing weapon and reckless discharge violations appeared in central bond court.

None of the incidents occurred in Grant Park, where Obama addressed a giddy crowd of 240,000 late Tuesday.

West Sider Narada Thomas, 23, told police he shot a .22-caliber revolver in the air to “celebrate Obama becoming president,” Scaduto said. And 37-year-old Andre Murph, of Aurora, shot a 9mm into the ground several times in the 700 block of West 60th Place to express his joy, Scaduto said.

“It was an exciting night,” Murph’s attorney James E. Thompson shrugged before Judge Israel Desierto.

While Kenneth Smith, a 24-year- old felon, never stated why he fired three rounds at his residence, in the 6700 block of South Ada Street, he complained that officers only arrested him “because a black man won for president,” Scaduto said.

Peer pressure seemed to get the better of 54-year-old Joseph Morgan, who allegedly was caught holding a .22-caliber gun in the air on his back porch in the 5700 block of South Lowe Avenue.

His excuse, according to prosecutors?

“Everybody else is shooting their guns, I figured, ‘Why not?’ ”

Funny how there is no mention of a “hate crime” anywhere in this article.

Oh, that’s right. The policeman is white.

Never mind.

    I need to get a list of “races that are permitted to hit each other.” So far, I think that it is OK for black to hit white, black to hit black, black to hit yellow, etc. I am pretty sure it is never OK for white to hit anything other than white. Yellow can hit yellow or white, but not black. Red can hit white but only in US?

    It is obvious that SOMEwhere, SOMEone has a list. I think your right there, almost any other race combination would have resulted in some assault charges (I think there are even extra charges when a policeman is hit?).

    Convicted felons in posession of firearms? Possesion of handguns in Chicago? Illegal discharge of weapons?

    Oh, yeah, I forgot. This IS Chicago, and the perps WERE black. No double standard here, huh? Move along, folks. Move along. Nothing to see here.

    Discharge of a firearm with in 500 feet of a dwelling is usually illegal most places, I guess no one told the felon that or the fact that he cannot possess a gun anyways. Talk about idiots and morons, it doesn’t matter who it is, it is not alright/legal to put hands on a cop.

    Sorry, JohnMG, didn’t fully read your comment. Not usually a copycat! Mea culpa.

  6. JohnMG says:

    Good show, Colonel. Just seems like a natural fit though, doesn’t it? The only people our newest inductee into the presidential hall of fame will disarm will be the ones who aren’t criminal. (Shhh. Or so he thinks.)

    I just can’t seem to remember but I know I’ve seen people firing weapons into the air somewhere when they’re happy? It doesn’t surprise me at all that Obamabots in Chi-Town would have the same mentality as muslims in the ME.

    Obama won because of white people.

    Black people were freed due to white people’s help.

    White people have ended slavery but slavery continues in Africa.

    White people created Democracy where former slaves can buy TVs, eat, have voting rights, and slap policemen.without getting their limbs hacked off.

    I think it’s time for a huge white backlash and some straight talk. Not HATE TALK, STRAIGHT TALK. Also, civility and privacy had better make a comeback, like, now. Or we are all doomed to watch the illiterates slug it out as they vent their hatreds and enjoy adrenaline boosts to their low self esteem. Obama will not say anything. He’s a coward like Bill Cosby.
    Let’s hope other intelligent black spokespeople get louder instead of cowering in the corners. They will have lots of support if they do.

    Spoken like only an ObamaTron could.

    Perhaps it isn’t their fault, maybe they all suffered from oxygen deprivation during childbirth.

    That would explain their inability to reason like a normal person.
