"'This was just a random act of violence. He stated he was just having a bad day that day,' Zone 2 Cmdr. Eric Holmes said of the 15-year-old.

...

 

Police charged the 15-year-old with simple assault, a misdemeanor, after his parents turned him in. He was charged as a juvenile because state law prohibits charging minors as adults for misdemeanor offenses.

 

Authorities would not identify the youth because of his age but the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has learned he is Dajour Washington, a student at Pittsburgh Student Achievement Center in Homewood.

 

Dajour's great-grandmother, the Rev. Marlene Green-Davis, said she watched surveillance footage of the attack on the TV news but never thought Dajour could have been involved until her son told her the boy had been arrested.

 

'I can't believe it,' she said. 'I lost my appetite. I couldn't eat dinner. Not my baby.'

Rev. Green-Davis said Dajour lived with her for about five years between the ages of 2 and 7 and visits her often, as he did after the teacher was punched.

 

He played football for some time and also received instruction in wrestling and boxing. She said he's 'very intelligent but not street-wise' and that he easily follows others because he 'wants to be part of a posse or crew.'

 

She said he was recently transferred to an alternative school after he and another boy fought on school grounds.

His arrest 'upset me but I turned it over to God,' she said. 'There's nothing I can do. Maybe this is what he needed to see that [jail's] no picnic.'"

Ahhhhhh I probably shouldn't comment since I choose to post under my real name and this is infuriating on so many levels. But on the other hand, I can't help but think of the microcosm of this and what's in store for that kid and his family. Not to say the attacker warrants any sort of compassion, he doesn't, but if he's tried as a juvenile, he probably won't do much if any jail time. Even if he does, he's on probation and has been in trouble before: I think it's safe to assume he has friends in jail and that combined with a short sentence wouldn't necessarily be as corrective as his grandmother assumes. And, since he's fifteen, with a record, and a google search of his name reveals video of an unprovoked and heinous attack as well as self-admissions of apparently severe anger issues, he stands little chance of being "highered" in even a menial job for probably several years. So fining him just fines his parents, which only hurts their family's chances of moving out of the ghetto, or results in a warrant for non-payment. Maybe I'm wrong and in 7 years, the professor tearily hands the reformed-attacker his college diploma. 

 

One last thing (I know, I'm an essay-writing creep): that fuckin' dude looked way too old to be taking unsupported falls onto concrete curbs. Neither follow-up article mentions the victim's condition and I find that appaling on the media's part, though stories about violent young black men acting out with seeming impunity get page hits (and also cheesedicks writing tl;dr's in the comments). At that age, you don't just "brush yourself off" after a knockout and hard fall.

 

Oh shit, I just realized how eminently punchable this leather-patches-and-casual-briefcase, beardy-face, walking-to-work-at-the-university-of-science-'cause-he's-still-got-vim-and-vigor grey-haried Good-Will-Hunting slap-dick truly is. I get it now.

Back in the day, I was riding my bike home from work, when I noticed a group of 8-10 teens crossing the street in front of me.  I noticed they kinda slowed down as I approached, so I braced myself for trouble. As I was passing, one punk launched himself at me with his shoulder, but since I thought something was up, I was prepared, and leaned into him.  It certainly helped that I had him by at least 30 lbs., and had more momentum in my favor.  He went back about 10 feet, but as he recovered, he moved towards me.  I stopped, got off my bike, grabbed my Kryptonite, and didn't budge.  They all stayed fairly clear of my reach, and slowly backed away shouting threats.  One gathered up the courage to throw a tennis ball at me.  Poor choice of a weapon, but he missed, wildly.  When one said something to the effect of, "Go get Jimmy, he's got a gun," I decided I had made my point and rode away.  I'm allergic to lead.

When almost all crime is committed on HD video these days, and phones give your GPS coordinates that place you at the scene,.. what's left for the detectives to do?  BOOK-EM-DANO!

Ronnie supports the black kid because he doesn't like figures of authority, Pepper agrees with Ronnie because thats what he does, Fez says the security camera is the victim because it had to witness violence.

 @michael kagan24 Thanks for the update (even as TL;DR as it is). I'm tired of the "not my baby" shit. If you're any sort of parent, you know how much of an asshole your kid is, especially if he's been in trouble before.

 

Oh hey, kid, if you're having a bad day, go the fuck home and play some goddamn video games, or hang out with your friends. Someone should bite off his fingers, so he can REALLY have a bad day.

 

Yeah, I'm wondering about the teacher as well, but we might hear it, because the media love sad stories and violence.

What is your thoughts and your opinion?

This is just a sample of more negative lifestyles to come [DAMN ]

The death of the African American in America, not trusted  irresponsible  and extremely violent.

This is just the beginning,and  that is the most unfortunate situation specially in African American communities.  We have finally cause problems that the rest of the American community will not deal with.  The African American community is on their own.  The crime rate in all major cities is exclusively caused by African Americans.  Statistics indicate that the average African American male and female under the age of 40 is either unemployed on welfare or in jail.  We are killing each other stealing from each other wholesale.  The white and Hispanic community is no longer willing to trust and higher African Americans for any type of opportunity's  that or  anything else that may be available.  We as a people are  no longer trusted and unable to blame anyone but ourselves for our own stupidity and ignorance.

African Americans did not take advantage of the opportunities that were available, these opportunities are being taken by immigrants willing to work to make a better life for themselves.

A message to the African American community when we had the opportunity we did not take advantage of it, so now we will have to hope that the new immigrants are willing to deal with the few African Americans that are willing to take advantage of the opportunities that may be available.

I said it before, and I say it again, you didn't want to work for the white man , and now you have to hope that the new immigrant  business community is willing to let you work for them. 

["DAMN": we have become losers  in our own country.]

A message to all [PARENTS]

The Bronx is infested with stupidity ignorance and Violence. This is so unfortunate the Bronx used to be a beautiful place to live , it had its moments over the years , but never as violent as it is now. A message to all you parents it's Saturday night. Take a look at your gangster and thug Children. By Sunday morning one of your children will not come home again , Unfortunately he or she will be Amongst an unnecessary statistic of street death And street violence.

Again parents are you listening cry for your children's while there alive because once their dead from street violence your tears will be in vain.

 @yotaruvegeta  @MarvinGittens  @sidwasout I was freaked out by the twitchy random spacing. I swear he has a few TRIPLE-spaces up that bitch. And the poor lonely floating commas... I know it's considered "gauche" to be a grammar Nazi, but you can't post something so moody and self-serious and then use crazy person random capitalizaton. "[H]igher" where you should be using "hire" is especially galling. But you're probably 12, so why the fuck should I complain?

 Well, my favorite cal. for personal protection is whatever I have handy, so if you've got a .380 on you, then that is what you use.  Nothing wrong with that.
