3 arrested after racially-motivated attack


LAKE LOS ANGELES – Three suspected white supremacists were arrested Sunday after a racially-motivated attack at a park in Lake Los Angeles, authorities said.

It happened just before 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 28, at the Stephen Sorensen Park, located at 16801 East Avenue P, according to Deputy Maxwell of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station.

Three white males allegedly harassed and attacked three Hispanic teenagers and then assaulted a family that tried to intervene, Maxwell said.

“They pulled knives out and attempted to cut two of the victims,” Maxwell said.  They were screaming racial slurs — ‘Heil Hitler, AV Skins’ — just numerous racial slurs toward the Hispanics.”

One of the victims said he was attending his daughter’s birthday party when he witnessed the attack.

“Me and a couple of family members went to go stop them from fighting,” said the victim, who did not want to be identified. “They were saying that they would kill us… they just kept coming back and calling us names.”

The attackers eventually ran away, but they were captured on the east side of the park, the deputy said.

One of the suspects yelled racial slurs at a news photographer while in the back seat of a patrol car.

“They are going to be arrested for assault with a deadly weapon as well as hate crime,” Deputy Maxwell said.

The suspects’ names and ages were not immediately released.

No one was seriously injured during the attack, officials said.

        Because if that’s true it excuses the Hitler-heiling skinheads, right?

    And the sad part is, in jail, these guys will meet even more white racists who will teach them even more hatred. In L.A. county jail, once you get assigned to a dorm you can’t sit with another race, or use the same shower or toilet as another race, its called “prison politics” and its forced on other inmates by the “hard core” inmates doing prison time in jail. Thanks to the great idea of letting state prisoners do their time in L.A. county jail, you end up with first offenders with a 30 day or 90 day sentence living in a dorm with state prisoners doing 5 or 10 years, and those state prisoners teach the “noobs” all about hatred and racism..

    At least the white boys holding it down. They’ll get tossed into LA county and it’ll be 300 Mexicans, 200 black bros, and 7 white guys. The white boys will get jumped and everybody will call them puzzies, but it’s always a numbers game with the brownies; it’s the only way they roll.

      Instilling more hate and fear won’t solve the problem. You’re just another hater professing to be right when you’re wrong. They need to be separated from the prison population and they need to be given consulting so they can look at life in a better way and they could become better citizens.

      @LeftAV4Good, although I appreciate that you left the AV because surely the value of my various properties went up as soon as you vacated. How is Texas working for you and your wife? I’d like to take the opportunity to share an article from The American Conservative (yes, it is a shocker):

      http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/his-panic/

      Here is an excerpt or passage/extract, since I have a feeling you may have some issues with reading/vocab comprehension. Enjoy!

      “The evidence presented here powerfully refutes the widespread popular belief that America’s Hispanics have high crime rates. Instead, their criminality seems to fall near the center of the white national distribution, being somewhat higher than white New Englanders but somewhat lower than white Southerners. Taken as a whole, the mass of statistical evidence constitutes strong support for the “null hypothesis,” namely that Hispanics have approximately the same crime rates as whites of the same age.

      We must bear in mind that most Hispanics are still of very recent immigrant origins and thus are considerably poorer than the average American. There actually does exist a connection between poverty and crime, even if liberals make such a claim, and since today’s Hispanic population has roughly the same crime rate as far more affluent whites, there is every reason to expect that this crime rate will drop further as Hispanics continue to move up the economic ladder. As the American Enterprise Institute’s Douglas Besharov pointed out in an important but insufficiently noticed October 2007 New York Timescolumn, the last decade or two have seen an extremely rapid economic advance for most of America’s Hispanic population. 10 This rise may be connected with the simultaneous and unexpectedly rapid drop in urban crime rates throughout the country.

      Meanwhile, the national debate over immigration remains contentious. Restrictionists can provide numerous completely legitimate arguments in favor of their position, ranging from economic competition and cultural conflict to national overpopulation and environmental degradation. But they will discredit these by including unsubstantiated claims about crime. Conservatives have traditionally prided themselves on being realists, dealing with the world as it is rather than attempting to force it to conform to a pre-existing ideological framework. But just as many on the Right succumbed to a fantastical foreign policy that makes the world much more dangerous than it needs to be, some have also accepted the myth that Hispanic immigrants and their children have high crime rates. Such an argument may have considerable emotional appeal, but there is very little hard evidence behind it.”

      Is white supremacist thug culture the norm in Lake Los Angeles?

      • LakeLaOwner
        February 29, 2016 at 7:31 pm

        It is not the norm. Lake Los Angeles has, for the last 25 years or more, been a great place for young families to get a start in home ownership. Most neighborhoods keep their neighbors accountable by building relationships with each other and the County has responded with improved services. We now have 2 new chain stores willing to invest in the community. The park is, In my honest opinion, Second to None in the county. The homeowners built that park, with a locally elected Park Association and a landscape district local tax.
        It is always unfortunate to have this type of crime committed in your own town but this could have happened anywhere, even in Anaheim, The Happiest City of all.

        Not the norm, but it is certainly present. Throughout the Antelope Valley, actually, though perhaps more openly out in Lake LA.

          Its likely that we have white supremacist in the antelope valley’s police department as well.

    Whoa ghetto thugs terrorizing innocent citizens trying to enjoy a afternoon at the park? Disgusting, lock these white supremacist nazi sympathizing thugs up. These guys probably lived off our tax dollars in section 8 homes and smoked meth all day and passed on their ghetto mentality to their offspring.

    Just out of curiosity why is it not ever called a racial attack when a group of blacks jump a single white person and beat him or her half to death? I don’t think I’ve ever seen it called a racial attack when this happens to white people. Shortly after the Baltimore riots 38 black kids beat an old man into a coma but they refused to call it a racial attack.

      Is there some reason you can’t comment on the story at hand but have to wander off into your little “oh poor picked on white people” fantasies?

      By the way, glad to hear from you. When I suggested we needed a roll call you were one of the people I was afraid we may have lost.

      Generally speaking, to be classified a hate crime, there has to be evidence of hate being the motivator. Usually with slurs or other comments, but it can be graffiti or other symbols. In the above article, slurs where used, which would make it fall under hate crimes.

      February 29, 2016 at 9:45 pm

      I think the racial slurs and targeting families at the park is what makes this a hate crime and way different from whatever crap you pulled out of ur a**

      Sorry I believe in the constitution. Fascist comments like these would draw a rebuke from Tim Scott if the perp were a minority.

      • Tim Scott
        February 29, 2016 at 3:42 pm

        The Fascist trademark “no trial required” is absent from the comment Flint. It makes no difference who the suspect is, the only time I point out fascist thinking is when it is present…as when your ilk calls for the “good cops” to go ahead and execute people in the streets.

        If you are going to pretend to speak for me, be accurate.

        • Flint
          February 29, 2016 at 6:26 pm

          Left in Death Valley? Would that be after a trial of some sort, or more of the fascist vigilante justice of this fascist crowd of take them out and execute them without a trial? Again, if it were a minority that had committed the crime, the Tim Scott defend the criminal circus would come rolling into town.

          • Tim Scott
            February 29, 2016 at 7:43 pm

            The “Tim Scott defend the criminal circus” could only roll into town out of your fevered imagination Flint.

            You arrived at that false impression when I disagreed with some “kill them all ” style “justice” posted by you and others. However, your false impression is not really my problem. Once again, if you are going to pretend to speak for me, be accurate.

          Tim, I agree with you on mostly everything. Some people judge with hate, or narrow mindedness. I doesn’t matter if we try and point out common sense to some people. They just see the live that’s around them, and their clouded head!!!! I tell you it gets so frustrating to me!! When we point out a wrong doing, they see us fascist. They say we only care about minorities, but we speak out for injustice. They’re going to see what they want to see. Thank you for giving me sanity when I read these commits!!!

          One of the suspect shouted racial slurs at the photographer. I realize still the allegedly, but the photographer is there for a story. The photographer is not there for witness. The suspect are suspected of being white supremacists. True they are only suspected of being white supremacists. People with Hispanic heritage normally don’t get suspected of being a white supremacist. That whole different skin tone thing and all. Just saying. The victims from this story where Hispanic, and the “suspected white supremacists” were the suspects.
