White family attacked, knocked unconscious at gas station for being in “wrong neighborhood”

Imagine for a second if two white men and a white woman at a gas station/convenience store in Louisiana told a black family that they were in the wrong neighborhood and that they weren’t going to make it out. Then each of the white suspects proceeds to knock unconscious the father, the mother, and the teenage daughter by hitting each of them in the face.

Then image that only one of the three suspects was charged with 2nd degree battery and arrested while the other two were released on simple battery changes even though they each rendered a person unconscious by striking them in the face.

This would be a national story and the country would be OUTRAGED on multiple levels at this incident, with everyone from movie actors to government leaders decrying the racist actions of these white individuals. We would be told there is still racism alive an well in America by people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton while they give speeches and rile the people up in this Louisiana town. And the police, oh they would be hamstrung for being racist because they only arrested one of the suspects and let two of them go.

The president would then weigh in on it and say the police acted stupidly after having someone in the press ask him about it so he could claim moral high ground and call it a teaching moment for the country.

And that would be the story running on all the major news outlets and evening news shows so that everyone in the country would know about it within a matter of hours.

But this story below, which is almost exactly the picture I painted for you above except that I switched the races of the suspects and the victims, won’t be given much attention at all if any. And it certainly won’t be called ‘racist’. It will just be the work of some deviant individuals but it won’t reflect on the country as a whole nor on the state of Louisiana.

WAFB – He was in the “wrong neighborhood” is just one reason a man gave as to why he was punched in the face. His wife and daughter were also hit.

Police arrested one man and ticketed two others. They are all accused of punching the family.

At the corner of Plank Road and Scenic Highway in Baton Rouge sits a Chevron gas station. It’s off I-110 near Memorial Stadium. A family stopped there to get gas Sunday around 10 p.m.

“Upon our arrival, we located three victims who were attacked in the parking lot,” said Cpl. Tommy Stubbs, spokesperson for the Baton Rouge Police Department.

The owners of the gas station did not want to comment on camera, but said there’s a wide variety of customers in and out of the store in the daytime. At night, though, it’s not the safest of places, especially with the area having some of the highest crime in the city.

“It was a small scene but it got to be a big scene after the fight broke out and it was a big scene when the police came,” said Keisha Henderson, a witness.

Stubbs said a man wearing a pink shirt was in line trying to pay for gas when Donald Dickerson, 41, started making fun of him, leading to an argument.

“The defendant (Dickerson) approached the white male victim,” the police report stated.

It went on to read, “the defendant told him he was in the wrong neighborhood and he was not going to make it out.” The victim said that’s when he “was punched and knocked to the ground.”

At this time, his wife got out of the car and ran to help her husband. The victim said, “he continued to struggle with the defendant and was eventually knocked unconscious, which later he awoke in the hospital.”

His wife told police, “after running to help her husband, she remembers falling to the ground and (being) knocked unconscious.”

According to a close family friend, that’s when the couple’s teenage daughter got out of the car to check on her parents and, “observed a female punch her mother in the face, when her mother then fell to the concrete, hitting her head on the surface.”

The daughter was also punched in the face.

“There were only three suspects but there were multiple people in the parking lot,” said Stubbs.

Of those three, Dickerson was arrested and charged with second-degree battery. The other two suspects, Devin Bessye, 24, and Ashley Simmons, 22, were released on site after police wrote them each a summons for simple battery.

Talk about reverse discrimination!!! These THUGS were probably out on bail within hours bragging and hanging out at the same place waiting for more innocent folks to beat them again! They probably live off of moma’s welfare too. Why does anyone hang out at a gas station to harrass white folks?? Just wondering…….
Nothing on any news network, and that is a shame, and shows how slanted this liberal media is.
Had it been the other way around as stated, it would be travon all over again!
It is an injustice that needs far more attention………….

Only ONE of the thugs was arrested, the other two were given tickets.  There were actually two daughters, a much younger one stayed in the car (thank God!), and the Mom who was punch is also going through chemo for breast cancer.  All three of the thugs have previous criminal records – surprise, surprise  and word around here is that the BRPD doesn’t want to bring hate charges b/c it might upset the black community.

There is one very dangerous black neighbourhood in Toronto. Even non-white taxi drivers will only let passengers off on the outskirts. Of course, all the neighbourhood black leaders blame racism and poverty for the high crime rate.  Thanks Mr. Trudeau, for letting into Canada  the cesspool of humanity from Jamaica.

“With what measure ye mete, it shall be measured again unto you.” The scum who did this are going to be really shocked someday when they try this on a prepared individual. No member of that family is to blame for what was done to them, but they violated several basic rules for survival on the mean streets: 1) Don’t be in dangerous places, especially not at night. The scum crawl out of the sewers more frequently then. 2) Have a weapon and learn how and when to use and not use it. For this situation, a firearm ***in trained hands*** would probably have been best, but any weapon is better than no weapon. A walking stick, pepper spray, a knife, a large, loyal, determined dog… 3) Plan ahead. Top off that tank in daylight, in a safe location. Maybe even have a one-gallon can of gas in the trunk?… Read more »

My wife and I and number four son were on vacation a couple of years ago and Houston was one of our stops.  We were downtown walking around, looking at all the buildings and just being tourists.  They have a light rail system that departs downtown and goes out into various suburbs around around the city.  We were sitting at one of the stops waiting for the train, thinking it would be a good way to see some of the city.  It was about 5:00 pm and we were the only white people there.  There was a black woman next to us and I asked her a few questions about which train we should take.  She looked at me and my wife and my son, and then shook her head.  She said, “you don’t want to take any of them.”  I asked her what she meant.  She then said, “you… Read more »

I am short @ 6′ 3″ only. But what I would like and foremost drilled inside my mind is our size don’t matter.

Years ago I read of a large man whose house was invaded at night by a young teenager, maybe 12 yrs old. Seeing no weapon, only a small opponent, and being confident in his size, the man decided to just give the kid a spanking and throw him out. The kid had a hidden knife, and he nearly disemboweled the man, who after extensive surgery found himself mostly restricted to a  diet of milk. Many years ago, a police officer and friend requested a transfer out of a tough precinct. I asked him why, and he replied, “I’m forty years old. I don’t need to be fighting with these nineteen year old kids every week.” I was shocked – this officer was lean, tough, trained, experienced. When I hit forty myself… Read more »

Back when police didn’t have to worry about being PC, they had a saying: “You don’t need your pistol often, but when you do, you need it mighty bad!”
BTW, when you read the text of this article (did you watch the video?) did you say to yourself, “These thugs were a bit extreme”?
If not, then what do you consider extreme? (Other than effectively defending yourself and your family.)

Obama WANTS violence and conflict. It expresses his OWN inner rage and fits in with his revolutionary Marxist paradigm that the “oppressed” need to “rise up” in violent revolution. He sees “people of color” as the “proletariat” and traditional Americans as the “oppressors”, like the kings of old who need to be brought down by any means neccessary. It’s only going to get worse.

IMHO – 
This racist attitude started to get under control until Obama was elected 
As was observed by all – his election has emboldened the minority community and frankly has made a bad situation much worse – By his lack of concern when incidents like this happen
His comments about the police and university professor (beer summit) and Travon Martin being his son , bla , bla , bla has fueled the fire 
All of this compounded by Eric Holder’s attitude of pursuing these crimes has put “race relations” bak many – many years 
You all get what I mean – It’s a shame – but it’s the truth

YoJoe Not to mention that Holder dropped the charges of those black guys that intimidated voters at the polling booths with clubs….after they had already been convicted.
This wasn’t just a “lack of concern when incidents like this happen (in my opinion).  All of this is intentional.  Obama and the Democrats are intentionally stoking the fire because it benefits them politically.  Divide and conquer….and prevent any blacks from starting to believe that slavery is in the past.

Thanks to the liberals, if a white man commits a crime against a black man it is automatically racist and labeled a hate crime.  No matter what.   Montel Williams told a story a few years back.  A black man got in the back seat of a drug dealer’s car and was testing out the cocaine.  Oh, by the way, the drug dealer was white.  The black guy grabbed all the drugs, jumped out of the car and ran without paying for them.  The white drug dealer chased him down and shot him dead.  To any level headed person, this would be the obvious result if you are dealing with a hard core, big time dealer.  But, Montel Williams said he only killed him because he was black and then he went on a diatribe of how blacks will one day be the majority and the tables will be turned on… Read more »

This will hardly be reported like the numerous group attacks taking place all over the country on whites. I am sure the phony preachers Al Not so Sharpton and the smug Jesse Jerk-son will want all this to be unmentioned because of backlash against blacks. Meanwhile decent blacks are stigmatized because of this bad behavior on the part of a minority of human scum.
