    This is what it smells like

    America the mob.

    No Christ, no manners, TV as a role model, isolated sexual objects, no parents, no future.

    Of course it could happen for some reason not yet revealed; Christ, manners, parents as role models, private loving married sex, and a future.


    David Rivas Morales died Tuesday from injuries sustained in an assault by an unknown number of black men following the car accident, which occurred in the parking lot of an East Austin apartment complex, police said.

    "It doesn't seem to be a hate crime, it really seems to be a spontaneous act resulting from that collision with that child," Harold Piatt, the commander of the Austin Police Department's Robbery Homicide Unit. "We don't know if there were any words exchanged between the driver and the men to start with that escalated this to the assault."

    "The driver, for whatever reason, whether he realized he was involved in the collision or his vehicle forced a stop, got out of the car, got into a confrontation with several men and was assaulted," Piatt said.

    Morales came to his aid and was fatally attacked in what police are calling a "spontaneous homicide." He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

    The driver was able to get back into his car and drive away. Both he and his vehicle have been located, Piatt said, but he declined to release the driver's identity because the man is a witness in an ongoing investigation.

    "We could have had anywhere from two to 15 and 20 [people] who are actually involved in the assault," Piatt said. Some 2,000 to 3,000 people were gathered in the parking lot at the time.
    The child was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Brackenridge Hospital.

    Some Perspective:

    I now Welcome the rest of the world to the dirty little secret Austin's chamber of commerce will never tell you about: east Austin (that is, the area east of the I-35 freeway) is a _WARZONE_, make no bones about it. It's predominantly black, and a little hispanic, but VERY dangerous to be in day or night. As you read, east Austin is where Mr. Morales was brutally bludgeoned to death by the animals in that mob.

    Why do you think those black men went through with the murder? There were 3,000+ people there; how is the Austin Police Dept going to get through all the people that were there to stop something like that? Since it wasn't a black being beaten to death, why should they care? That racism has been so deep-seeded in those that have lived there it's atrocious. Only the Palestinians do a better job of passing down racial hatred to future generations (hatred of all Jews).

    I'm sure I can tell you the answers the Austin police were similar to, "We didn't see/hear nuthin'! Many blacks witnessed the murder who didn't participate in it, and NO ONE came to this poor man's aid. Those who witnessed it but did nothing are guilty of crimes of omission of action; if one or two blacks had implored the murderers to stop, maybe he would be alive today. But such deep-seeded racism breeds animalistic physical and mental behavior.

    You see, the real hypocrisy is, there have been several instances where blacks have been killed by the Austin police in justifiable uses of force, yet the Austin chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the Texas Civil Rights Project filed a federal complaint about how police officers use force in Austin for multiple instances going back years, that they claim were unwarranted and racially motivated.

    The fact that the NAACP and Texas Civil Rights Project display their DEAFENING SILENCE on Morales' murder speaks *volumes* on the race-trading and race-baiting that is going on in east Austin.

    Exhibits on the underlying issues that I could find on short notice:

    On Austin's highest rated radio talk show, "Jeff Ward At Large" hosted by Jeff Ward on AM 590 KLBJ, a caller who called in today offered a pretty scary advice that inferred a prediction for how things might spiral out of control in east Austin. The caller said something tantamount to "If I was black and lived near or below 12th street (in east Austin), I would stay inside and not be out in public there for a while." I'm not sure if he meant it jokingly or not (as Jeff's personality by nature solicits those who would call his show with sarcastic and/or gauche humor), but he meant that in the area where the murder occurred, the caller was predicting there could be potential some kind of hispanic-on-black violent retaliation. I hope it doesn't come to that.

    I'm sorry to say I lived (note past-tense) in east Austin for a 4 year stretch. During that time, multiple drive-by shootings occurred within a mile of my place, one as close as 3 city blocks away, along with one attempted rape by some monster--- only problem with investigating that assault is the victim gave such a general description of the rapist it matched half the white men in Austin. In Morales' case, there are no descriptions because supposedly no one saw anything.

    Yes, the east side of Austin is a very dangerous place. The rest of the world is just being awakened just how barbaric it has been for a very long time. It's NO coincidence the I-35 freeway was built where it was back in the 1950s in Austin.... to be a physical barrier between the west side and east side of Austin.

    I sincerely hope the murderers and the witnesses who did nothing to help him are found and tried. Mr. Morales deserves no less.
