The Story of the Beating of the Soldier Tasha Hall by the Racist Troy Dale West is Absent from FR
I find it a little surprising that this story is absent from the pages of FreeRepublic. It's headline news. Much like the story of the white boy beat up by blacks in Chicago, which the Freepers were quick to post on their site and decry as a hate-crime. But the denizens of FreeRepublic must not consider it to be a hate crime when a white man calling a U.S. Soldier a "nigger bitch" while beating her head with his fists and when she is down on the ground kicking her head with his boots, all in front of her seven year child.

My guess is that Troy Dale West may actually be a Freeper and they are over there busily checking that and either scrubbing the sites of his posts or trying to figure out how to cover it up.

Once they do that, they may allow the story to be posted on their site. And I guarantee, the responses will contain indignation along side of racism. I seriously doubt that any of them will defend Tasha Hall or denounce the attack for what it really is. And they wonder why President Carter says the nation is full of racism.

1. You're being sarcastic right?
Why would you be surprised? After all she was black and he was white, and by FreeRepublic standards that makes him the victim not her.

And she was a woman!!!!

2. Any story there will be full of "she SPIT on him" excuse.
And she called him "honky".

4. Even if she did, would it excuse his action?
The man deserves to be locked up for quite some time and I believe he will be. That poor little girl will be traumatized for the rest of her life.
