Police to White Victim: We 'Don't Mess' with Black Gang

Police to White Victim: We 'Don't Mess' with Black Gang
See also: Birmingham News Drops the Ball on Black-on-white Crime
Most of us have heard about how the media won't report on black-on-white crime. We also may know that authorities sometimes sweep it under the rug due to political pressure, usually with a wink and a nod. But not so in rural Alabama, where the police actually told a white crime victim that they "don't mess" with a local black motorcycle gang.
The tragic event that led to this shocking admission occurred on March 28, as truckdriver Nick Stokes and neighbor Johnathan Cooper were heading out of Birmingham hauling a portable cabin. While rounding a curve, one of Stokes' tires slipped and kicked up some gravel, which angered a black motorcycle-gang member who was in close proximity. The gangster -- part of the notorious "Outcasts of Alabama" -- gave chase and tried to force Stokes to pull over to the side of the road. Here's what happened next, as reported by the Macon Beacon's Scott Boyd, whose piece has been published online by J. Christian Adams:The motorcyclist then sped up and pulled in front of Stokes [sic] F-250. He stopped in the middle of the road and forced Stokes to stop. He then jumped off his bike and came around to the passenger side and hit the rear passenger window with his fist but it didn't break. Stokes then made the quick decision to get out of there and pulled out around the parked motorcycle.
Stokes said he looked back in his rear-view as he pulled away and noticed the biker rolling in the highway. "He either tried to jump in the back of the truck or onto the trailer and somehow slipped."
Stokes said when he noticed the injured man flailing in the roadway he stopped, worried about leaving the scene of an accident. Stokes said he was getting out of his truck to go check on Clay when a woman in a red Jeep pulled alongside and shouted a warning: "You better get out of here - they've got guns." That's when Stokes looked back down the highway and [saw] some the motorcycle gang - 30 or 40 bikes strong - headed his way. "I jumped back in the truck and took off until I could find a busy intersection and that's where I stopped."
Stokes said he and Cooper were immediately surrounded by a gang of black bikers, all with black bandanas covering the bottom half of their faces.
The gang forced him out of the truck and commenced their revenge attack. "After I saw the knife and then felt the stabbings I fell to the ground and played dead - I think that may have saved my life," he said.
Stokes heard police sirens seconds later, as his friend, Cooper, had called 911 on his cellphone. But despite the authorities having identified the injured gangster as Ladarrious Clay of Birmingham, none of the bikers were detained or even questioned, reports Boyd. Shocking.
And the silence is deafening. Boyd contacted the Birmingham News, only to be told that the incident wasn't "newsworthy." In fact, if J. Christian Adams hadn't published the story at PJ Media, we probably never would have heard about it. The Macon Beacon is so small that it doesn't even have a website.
As for the relevant law-enforcement agency, the Adamsville Police Department, its public affairs officer had not responded to Boyd's inquiries as of his press time. Yet it's not as if they had no answers at all. They told Stokes that there was nothing they could do, as it would be impossible to identify those who actually wielded the knives. And then there was that more shocking admission. Both Stokes and Boyd were told the same thing by the Adamsville police.
We "don't mess with the Outcasts of Alabama."
Wow. Just wow. These guys sound like Barney Fife -- without the guts.
We're used to hearing stories about law enforcement being intimidated by organized crime in places such as Colombia and Mexico. But in the US? This is yet another example of our descent into Third Worldism.
Stokes also reported the crime to the FBI, which has promised an investigation. The question is, will the agency do anything more than just go through the motions? I don't know, but three things are for sure. First, if this had been an attack by a white gang on a black victim, the national media would be all over the story. Second, Eric Holder's DOJ won't be getting involved like it has in the Trayvon Martin Case. And, lastly, we can be sure that Barack Obama won't get on his soapbox and accuse the Adamsville police of acting stupidly.

No Attention for Daylight Highway Stabbing in Alabama
April 10, 2012 - 5:54 am - by J. Christian Adams
UPDATE: The Birmingham News now finds the story newsworthy, about 7 hours after PJ Media first published the story, and at least a week after the Birmingham News, didnít.
The Birmingham news is, in my opinion, a bias socialist rag that even birds would not want in their cages. This is how the Birmingham News covered the story. I am surprised that they could take the time away from printing pictures of illegals demonstrating and printing their sob stories.
Police probe March stabbing in Jefferson County

ADAMSVILLE, Alabama - Adamsville police are investigating a March 24 road-rage incident in which a Mississippi man was stabbed, authorities said.
Adamsville Police Chief Bob Carter said the incident happened about 2:45 p.m. on that Saturday. Truck driver Nick Stokes told police one of his trailer tires slung gravel onto a motorcyclist as he rounded a curve on Minor Parkway.
Carter said there were about 20 motorcyclists riding together on the way from a funeral. The motorcyclists were members of the Outcasts of Alabama Motorcycle Club based in Bessemer. Authorities said they've never had any incidents of violence from the social motorcycle club.
One of the motorcyclists pulled up alongside Stokes, and then in front of him, forcing him to stop, Stokes told police. As the motorcyclist approached his cab, Stokes pulled off. The motorcyclist was somehow injured in the incident, Carter said.
Stokes, who is white, said he was then surrounded by the "gang of black bikers," who forced him out of the truck and stabbed him. He was taken to UAB Hospital where he said he received 15 stitches for his injuries.
Carter said a passenger in the truck cab with Stokes corroborated the story, as did a passerby who stopped to help.
Birmingham police, Jefferson County sheriff's deputies, Brookside police, and Minor and Birmingham firefighters also responded to the scene that day, Carter said.
Conservative bloggers have claimed the incident was a black-on-white hate crime, but Adamsville police say it appeared to be road rage prompted by the Mississippi trucker accidentally spraying the motorcyclist with gravel.
Birmingham FBI spokesman Paul Daymond confirmed a complaint was made to the agency and they are looking to determine if any federal violation occurred.
Carter said the idea that nobody is doing anything is "ridiculous."
"It was never viewed lightly by the Adamsville Police Department. All I can tell you is in any investigation, there is a search for the truth," the chief said. "We're trying to get to the bottom of it, and prosecute whoever is guilty of wrongdoing."
