This is what happened when a family of disfavored pigmentation stopped for gas at a Chevron station in Baton Rouge:
[Police spokesman Tommy] 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.
The rest of the mob got off completely free.
The victim suffered “a broken eye socket, broken nose, and several lacerations to the face,” and his wife was knocked unconscious.
Police are “investigating,” but somehow I doubt this will qualify as a hate crime, just as no matter how many times it happens, it will not make national news.
After the federal government has handed over $15,000,000,000,000.00 of our money, this is what we get in return.
Dickerson: What we’ll have left when the makers are taxed out of existence.
