Update on the racist beatdown of Tasha Hill at Georgia Cracker Barrel by Troy Dale West
by: Pam Spaulding

I wanted to update you on the horrible story of the black woman who was beaten down at a Georgia Cracker Barrel by mullet-sporting trash Troy Dale West. The incident was caught on the restaurant's surveillance video, and it has been turned over to the FBI. Tasha Hill's seven-year-old daughter witnessed this man pummel her mother and now blames herself for what happened to her mother because she's the one who wanted to go to Cracker Barrel. Local news video is up.

A police report of the incident said Hill's daughter was "crying uncontrollably and her body shaking/trembling" from witnessing the attack.

And this is what he said -- and what she witnessed -- as West beat her mother:

According to Hill's report, and confirmed by many witnesses, West screamed out racial slurs before punching her in the face. "He said, 'You're an fucking black nigger bitch,' is what he said," said Hill.

1. That little girl is never going to forget that,
to say nothing of her poor mother.

2. It's hard to believe that deranged freak is loose
He's a danger to the public, he shouldn't be out.

To the DA's credit, she's going to convene a grand jury next month to see about getting felony indictments.

12. Whassup Swampie!
Crazy days, eh? That mouse of a man should've lit for the border, pronto. Now, he's got the whole country watching him. And that crew of community activists would probably be tickled silly if he tried anything more than lowrunning to the 7-11 for sandwiches and smokes. Jail is the only safe refuge he's got left.

What a thoroughly mean-ass bastard.

8. I would imagine that even the staunch racists who witnessed the act...
are going to be negatively affected for a good, long time. It's one thing to agree with the rhetoric, quite another to have to witness something so ugly, in person.

Additionally, not so sure the judge did this good ol' boy any favors by cutting him loose. He'd be a hell of a lot safer in solitary - assuming he'd have white guards tending to his needs. I doubt he'll get the opportunity to face a jury.

10. Altough I Live Here In Atlanta
And I hardly watch any local news (to busy watching MSNBC and FOXNews and surfing the web n stuff) but I do remember getting a whiff of this story. And it was in the news this week.

Pretty little girl too, the mother's not bad looking either.

Didn't know dude had a mullet though.

16. Wow
I could be wrong, but it looks like even Merchant Circle is giving him the finger. Down the left side is a pic of the crying girl he scared half to death.

13. That fucker is lucky
I wasn't there. I would have went all Charles Bronson on ass!
"Hey pally, let me introduce you to my Smith and Wesson." Of course, then again I don't own a gun, let alone a S&W.


Aw hell. Regardless, I am pretty damn sure I would have found a nice, hard blunt object to introduce to his face a couple of times. I am really hoping there was only that one other woman around to witness this event. Because if there were any "men" or a group of women in the vicinity who saw but did nothing to stop this, then they are all a bunch of fucking cowards.

I know some people will say if I was really there, I would possibly freeze up out of shock. Well, I got news for you. That shock would wear off after about a measly second when I realized a helpless woman was having her face beat in by some dumb racist hick in front of her little girl. Sure, I am putting myself at risk, but look at what else is at risk, the life of an innocent woman, and the traumatization of an innocent little girl.

Why do southern conservatives hate America? I hope the sumter soldiers break their story too. One active duty was refused medical attention because he was brown and scary looking for the staff.
