    Had the races in the beating been reversed Mayor Andy would have squealed like a pig, got the local Reverends speaking out + marching the students from Famu to the capitol grounds, and stirred up the local media into a raciest hate filled, elect Andy to Governor, mindless feeding frenzy.
    But perhaps most importantly of all:
    Mayor Andy would have seen (in his mind’s eye only) lots of them big ‘ole confederate flags here there and everywhere.
    As it turned out there was not a peep out of any of the above race baiters and local leftist media condoned the beating by not even covering “the incident” until the young man recently got busted.
    I realize this may be just a little too much truth for a lot of gentle readers and you may feel free to retreat to the safe space inside your liberal brain.

      That’s so funny you bring up racism. The white security guard was calling them the N word. But nah you’ll still play it off lime the right wing nut job you are. Learn the facts before you open your ignorant mouth. TPD reported this to our security company while we were being trained by them.

    So glad they arrested one of the thugs. Hope they get the others. A report on the condition of the security guard would be appreciated.

    What Black Fraternity and Sorority groups initiated this party that caused this attack/battery on a White uniformed security officer?

    Is this Frat/Sor ‘Code of Silence’ the reason only one person has been and will be arrested?

    Obviously, it is widely known by this group who the other attackers are.

    The accosted Officer should pursue legal personal action against: 1) each separate attacker, 2) their families and 3) the Frat/Sor that bred this attack and what is TPD doing to investigate?

    It appears this attack was premeditated and agreed upon before it took place; the flying stomp on the head by the second attacker in the first few seconds demonstrates that.

    Really Sad.

      Pursue legal action even though the guard was being racist to these guys?

    TPD won’t release the other video they have due to it revealing the security guard using racial slurs while telling the groups to leave. TPD is my source because they trained us and spilled the beans..
