First Suspect Charged In Brutal Baltimore Attack

One of the alleged culprits from the brutal attack on a tourist in Baltimore has turned himself into police. His name is Aaron Parsons, 20, and he was identified on social media posts over the past week. He is now charged with assault, robbery and other crimes. [Update: Bail has been reduced]

Police say that they are seeking three other individuals below. Just as I was previously confused how the Chief of Police could rule out a racial motivation for the crime, I do not see how only four people are suspects of criminality based on the video. However, once the first suspect is found in a case like this, it generally only becomes a matter of time given the clear shots of the suspects below. Ironically, the “fun” video taken by the laughing crowd will prove their undoing. Notably, the two people who took the videos (rather than call police) will not apparently be named or arrested.

  1. I must show my affection for your kind-heartedness giving support to folks who actually need help with this particular field. Your personal commitment to passing the message across had become unbelievably powerful and has consistently allowed regular people just like me to realize their dreams. Your entire warm and friendly instruction means so much to me and extremely more to my fellow workers. Regards; from everyone of us.

  2. From Parsons’ attorney: “You know, one might say that every instance of black on black crime is a hate-crime.”


  3. I had a feeling, before I even went to the Comments, that Rafflaw would somehow blame the tourist’s beating on Big Corporations. You never disappoint, Rafflaw! Nicely done.

  4. Mr. Metz,
    Are you suggesting that their was no crime committed because the guy “simply walked into” the wrong part of town? Or are you suggesting that it isn’t a crime because Al Sharpton would not favor African Americans being charged for a crime because they are black?

  5. Richard Faircloth:

    You sandwich board types have been predicting Armegeddon since … well, Armegeddon. When do you just concede you have no idea when and if it will occur, and quit making fools of yourself?

    By the way, I thought you god-fearing Christians rely on “manna from heaven” when the food stamps stop, or don’t you subscribe to that miracle.

  6. So now Obama is the “real” culprit because some idiots savagely attack a white man in Baltimore? Mr. Faircloth, you should stop watching Fox News and realize a one world government is already here. It is one world of corporations that are in the process of taking over the government, not the one percenters.

  7. Thank you Dredd.

    Do they often visit us? Wonder what put us on their list of places to visit?
    “Sites catering to lawyers, atheists, constitutional believers. free (some do) sex, and other sins”

    With thought of the thread subject, sounds like a scatter principle was used.
    You know. throw the tacks on the concrete at a swimming pool party, and then see who says OUCH. Ouchers get laughed at and an extra drink to chug. Just like Charm City.

  8. The guy just wanted one room with a double bed and free breakfast for one night. He found his way back to the hotel and remembered little.

    The people who posted the videos did the victim and the world a favor. Although Baltimore may not attract large masses of tourists in the near future.

    As for the commenter who is worried about Armageddon when the food stamps stop or the OWS movement people come to a town near you. Join the Tea Party now and start the local chapter of the Bund. We need more foot soldiers.

  9. Hmmm… BPD Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III – the videotaped beating of a white tourist does not appear to be a hate crime, but rather “drunken opportunistic criminality” on the part of a gang of Charm City assailants.

    In a TV interview, Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III urged Baltimore residents to “distinguish between criminality and racially motivated crime.” Bealefeld, who is white, warned against “race-baiting” and “fear-mongering” in light of the Trayvon Martin shooting and other recent racially charged incidents.

    “There’s no doubt it’s a crime,” Bealefeld said of the March 17 assault. “We need to vigorously hold criminals accountable, and we have to be careful not to be pulled into this race-baiting.”

    Yeah, that’s putting the “Charm” into “Charm City”.

    Now were it White assailants on a Black victim, what would the outcome be?

  10. Richard Faircloth, I’ve called the local asylum and let them know you’ve escaped again.

    May I suggest that we pay attention to our spiritual health?
    Yes you may, however, I think you are confusing “spiritual health” with social darwinism and “holy opinion Mr. Faircloth.

  12. The attack, and so many others like it plus the OWS movement, looks like the face of impending anarchy, to me. Just wait until the food stamps stop and the Medicaid health comes to a grinding halt. That will be a good time to stay off the streets and block your doors and windows.
    If we do see nation-wide riots which bring about a state of national emergency and Obama becomes our dictator-in-chief, then I predict that that situation will be a segway into a One World Government (OWG). It will also be the time when We, the People, will be disarmed and anyone who shows leadership skills will be eliminated.

    May I suggest that we pay attention to our spiritual health? To me, where we spend eternity is a matter of huge importance. And the gov cannot keep us out of Heaven unless we give up our salvation that Jesus secured for us. Our choice; the rewards of this life or Heaven (an eternity of Rejoicing).

  13. Ever been to cedar fest in East Lansing….. And you’ll see how they can charge anyone and everyone…… Just for being there…..
