Raging white man gets knocked out -- twice -- after attacking black father at community pool

Last edited Thu Aug 1, 2019, 06:34 AM - Edit history (1)

oshua Valentine was accused by witnesses and police of verbally and physically attacking the black man July 20 at the pool as he played with his children, reported KWTV-TV.

The 28-year-old Valentine allegedly punched the other man, who fought back and knocked out his assailant.

Valentine awoke a few minutes later and left the pool area, police said, but returned with a baseball bat.

Witnesses said he swung the bat at the black man, who fended him off with a chair and then punched him several times knocking Valentine out a second time.

2. Non-Rawstory link:

https://www.news9.com/story/40856723/man-arrested-accused-of-racial-attack-at-okc-apartment-complex-pool

OKLAHOMA CITY - A family trip to the pool took a very dark turn July 20, at an apartment complex on Southwest 5th and MacArthur in Oklahoma City.

Witnesses and police said 28-year-old Joshua Valentine targeted a black man, who was at the swimming pool to watch his kids. Police said Valentine verbally then physically attacked the victim with a closed fist. The victim, however, turned the tables on Valentine, and knocked him out.

When Valentine awoke a few minutes later, he left the pool area, then returned with a baseball bat. Police and witnesses said he swung at the victim, who not only fended Valentine off with a chair, the victim then struck Valentine several times with his fist, knocking Valentine out a second time.

Police ended up arresting Valentine for malicious harassment based on race. He spent six days in the Oklahoma County Jail.

It's really open season out there, as declared by the President of the United States.

But god forbid anyone call Trump out for being a racist. Targets of bigotry just need to be ready to defend themselves at the drop of a hat, anytime, anywhere. Because that's the kind of country our leaders and media want.

Seriously, who would ever say such a thing? It's like when someone tells you they're an expert, they're probably not. Really smart people know that there's much more than they know.

It's from something that happened a couple of years ago in Seattle.

I guess there was no actual video of the Oklahoma City incident.

The guy came back with a bat. During his jail time, you know he was seething with anger. When he gets out, he will go looking for the guy with a gun.

and let everyone know, hate will NOT be tolerated. What kind of message would running away teach his kids? Running away, fear, subjugation - that's what the racists want. We must stand against them.

are not seen, not reported? You believe all of us should run when threatened by bigotry? It's happening everywhere. Where exactly in Trump's America would you have us go?

No. This is our land. This is our country. I have stood against hate with my own children behind me.

This topic is neither abstract or hypothetical for me.

The aggressor's mugshot does not match this guy in the animated gif.

The location of where this happened (at a community pool) doesn't match the animated gif.

What gives?

12. The animated gif is unrelated.

It's been going around for over a year now, it's just a Seattle nazi harassing a black man getting his clock cleaned. It's not the person from the article, it's just a tidy visual representation of what happened.

this story made me laugh aloud.

It reminded me of the counter girl at McDs here in Florida that punched some racist asshole in the face when he disrespected her.

He hadn't a clue that she was an amateur boxer.

Real news but not this story.
It's a deceptive and unrelated animated gif. It has nothing to do with this story. It's fake in that we are led to believe that it comes from this specific incident. It doesn't.

There's a difference.
This type of hair-splitting serves no good purpose. There can be no denying that this animated image has NOTHING to do with the actual story.

The fact that it was from a "real" event doesn't change the fact that in this context when shown along with an entirely unrelated story, it's deceptive and misleading. Why try and defend this type of deception?

I would check this asshat for weapons in his residence.

He escalated when he got a bat and there is no reason to believe the next one won't be with a firearm.

He committed an act of domestic terrorism and must be checked out and sent for a psych eval.

I would also sue him for violating my civil rights based on race.

Do not go easy on this racist!

Would it be possible to remove it from your post?

It's bad enough a baseball bat-wielding thug attempted to murder a father in front of his children, but the gif detracts from the veracity and impact of the actual story.
