D.C. Police Post Video Of Savage Attack On Tourist At The Washington Hilton

The Washington Hilton Hotel (where Ronald Reagan was shot) was the scene of a savage beating of a tourist by a dozen youths at the entrance of the hotel in broad daylight. The brazen attackers exhibited little concern that they would be stopped, let alone arrested, as they took turns kicking, hitting, and spitting on the man. Police have released pictures and the video in the hopes of identifying the attackers.

The Hotel at 1919 Connecticut Avenue and T Street, NW is in the heart of the restaurant and tourist area. It is the location of the annual White House Correspondents Dinner and part of the popular Dupont Circle area.

The video shows the victim walking with another man toward the entrance of the hotel when a group of young males and females jump out and attack them. They pile on the victim and then punch his friend when he tries to intervene. No hotel security can be seen which is quite surprising.

Screen images:

The vicious of the attack of the attack is shocking including a girl who runs back to spit on the man. The obvious dangerousness of these young people is manifest. This is not some youthful indiscretion. It shows an utter lack of empathy, restraint, and humanity. The fact that this could happen at the very entrance of one of the most popular hotels in Washington is chilling.

The victim was left with head injuries and an injury to his left eye.

  1. Dear Mom in Georgia, if you have read any of my postings in the past you would know where I am coming from. What’s going on in our large cities today is insane. But when you talk to some people on the looney left, that is a good example of the responses you will receive from them. If there are no repercussions for bad behavior, then some people will never learn.

  2. Just imagine what happens when they get our guns, these SBs would have a turkey-shoot on the innocent and functional. The Cops and military aren’t going to do squat. The way black leaders are pushing abortions and pushing their throw-away youths to become feared & hated, It’s almost like they want them to be genocided (sic). So sad.

  3. Savagery seems to be a part of the Democratic Party that offers sanctuary cities to illegals that have broken our laws. They even offer it to illegals that then kill American citizens. Does that savagery stop with American citizens convicted of heinous crimes? No. Does it stop with white supremecists who kill? No.

    AG Barr feels differently about the safety of American citizens.
    —–
    AG Barr to Start Executing Child Murderers and the Left Freaks Out

    The Left’s war on the criminal justice system has largely been successful.

    Republicans, who were once tough on crime, have been co-opted into supporting “criminal justice reform”. Meanwhile police departments around the country have been terrorized with the Ferguson Effect. And the death penalty has become precarious because of a sustained effort to cut off access to the medications needed for lethal injection.

    And now comes an unexpected announcement from Attorney General Barr.

    Attorney General William P. Barr has directed the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) to adopt a proposed Addendum to the Federal Execution Protocol—clearing the way for the federal government to resume capital punishment after a nearly two decade lapse, and bringing justice to victims of the most horrific crimes. The Attorney General has further directed the Acting Director of the BOP, Hugh Hurwitz, to schedule the executions of five death-row inmates convicted of murdering, and in some cases torturing and raping, the most vulnerable in our society—children and the elderly.

    “Congress has expressly authorized the death penalty through legislation adopted by the people’s representatives in both houses of Congress and signed by the President,” Attorney General Barr said. “Under Administrations of both parties, the Department of Justice has sought the death penalty against the worst criminals, including these five murderers, each of whom was convicted by a jury of his peers after a full and fair proceeding. The Justice Department upholds the rule of law—and we owe it to the victims and their families to carry forward the sentence imposed by our justice system.”

    The details are horrifying. And the timing is important.

    Governor Newsom in California decided to give monsters that were just as bad a pass. The Trump administration won’t.

    Here are some of the promising candidates.

    Daniel Lewis Lee, a member of a white supremacist group, murdered a family of three, including an eight-year-old girl. After robbing and shooting the victims with a stun gun, Lee covered their heads with plastic bags, sealed the bags with duct tape, weighed down each victim with rocks, and threw the family of three into the Illinois bayou.

    Wesley Ira Purkey violently raped and murdered a 16-year-old girl, and then dismembered, burned, and dumped the young girl’s body in a septic pond. He also was convicted in state court for using a claw hammer to bludgeon to death an 80-year-old woman who suffered from polio and walked with a cane.

    Lezmond Mitchell stabbed to death a 63-year-old grandmother and forced her nine-year-old granddaughter to sit beside her lifeless body for a 30 to 40-mile drive. Mitchell then slit the girl’s throat twice, crushed her head with 20-pound rocks, and severed and buried both victims’ heads and hands.

    Dustin Lee Honken shot and killed five people—two men who planned to testify against him and a single, working mother and her ten-year-old and six-year-old daughters.

    The Brennan Center is freaking out right on schedule.

    “Trump Cranks up America’s “Machinery of Death,” To No One’s Surprise,” the leftist pro-crime group, which some conservatives have unfortunately chosen to collaborate with, writes.

    “It doesn’t matter to Trump, or to Barr, that violent crime rates are down in America and at generational lows in many jurisdictions. It doesn’t matter that, as more states abolish the death penalty, executions are down across the country and that the imposition of death sentences in murder cases also is waning for good and practical reasons. It does not matter to this administration that conservative opposition to capital punishment has grown significantly over the past decade or so,” one of the Brennan Center’s hacks shrieks.

    But it does matter. That’s the whole point.

    The pro-crime movement has made great gains. It’s time to put the issue in front of Americans. And to make it clear that conservatives believing in putting down monsters who murder children while leftists sympathize with them. __Daniel Greenfield

    1. I agree with what you said, however this isn’t political.. This is Black kids beating up a gay white man!! Savages.And they wonder why people are rac6.. Not everything is political geezus!!

      1. Bobby, you are right of course, but the left has adopted race and intersectionality to replace policy since they have none.

  4. “The vicious of the attack of the attack is shocking including a girl who runs back to spit on the man. The obvious dangerousness of these young people is manifest. This is not some youthful indiscretion. It shows an utter lack of empathy, restraint, and humanity. The fact that this could happen at the very entrance of one of the most popular hotels in Washington is chilling.”

    And what percentage of the youthful black population in this country consists of individuals equally as dangerous? I fear it is quite large.

      Here’s a suggestion. The scooters they were riding are Lime company scooters that require you to use an account to ride. Contact the company. They keep track of the trips and attached customer info including license info, and time of trips.”

      A good idea — unless they stole the scooters.

      Terrible.

  5. Not sure of the intended point of posting this other than a cautionary video for parents and anyone who enjoys our city streets.The fact is that crime is way down from the 70’s as are racial incidents, which this one does not appear to be. Of course this is a disgusting display of some of the worst behaviors humans in groups are capable of and I’m not convinced this indicates any trend or rising problem, but an ancient one.

    1. Mob-nificent Mile: “Large group” brings havoc back to Michigan Avenue; 4 battered, 1 arrest

      Chicago police work to clear a mob from the McDonald’s at State and Chicago on Dec. 30th | @David2Chicago
      At least four people were injured and CTA Red Line traffic was snarled as large groups of teens and young adults brought havoc to the Magnificent Mile on Saturday evening. One arrest was made.

      Saturday’s incident was the latest in a string of similar mob actions along the Magnificent Mile and inside Water Tower Place.

      Other cases were reported in early May, on Memorial Day weekend, and on Thanksgiving weekend.

      1. i know that corner well. you have the L stop one block from high end retail. one block west from the L you have the YMCA. there is a mixed element that now feels empowered to act up. back when daley jr was mayor that element was afraid of the cops. they wanted to keep mag mile orderly for the tourists and shoppers. but now, now the cops are afraid of them. we all know where that leads.

      2. My daughter lived about 2 blocks from there for 6 years and I’ve been in that place. Gangs are a real scourge and show up now in even small towns. The Cabrini Green projects were not far from there before they were demolished.

      1. Kurtz, if you read the articles, the incident was apparently preceded by one in a bar and just before the attack, one of the kids yelled “that’s the guy”. One reasonably assumes that no other whites – or anyone – was attacked, and therefore the attack was probably not racial, much as you wish it was. Also, while hard to see, some of the kids might have been white.

        1. this presumption assumes too much. that is like saying an attack on emmet till was not racial just because his kindnappers did not make off with his black uncle from whose house he was abducted.

          black on white violence is very real. likewise so is black on black violence. the key factor here is not only race however it is sex and also age. it’s not vaguely blacks. it’s mostly just young male blacks who are wildly, clearly, and overwhelmingly represented relative to their proportion of the population, as perpetrators of violent crime. i provided relevant statistics the other day.

          ironically, in this video, we see black women stomping on the victim too, but observe they di not lead the attack.

          you can call me racist for saying so but I could die tomorrow and go silent and the facts would remain the same

          1. Kurtz, white on black violence – including mass murder and by officers of the state – are real as well, and if we’re keeping score as you seem to want, blacks have a lot of catching up to do so buckle up and take it like a racist..

            Absent what we know motivated the murderers of Emmet Till, the incident in DC is without evidence.suggesting it was racial, and especially since some of the perps may have been white. This was a mob of youths on the street acting crazy, not a klan coven with a mission.

            1. Kurtz, white on black violence – including mass murder and by officers of the state – are real as well,

              No, they’re not. There are fewer than 600 homicides in this country in a typical year which feature a white perpetrator and a black victim. In a metropolitan region of ordinary size, that’s about 2 homicides a year. And, of course, many of the perps are not, strictly speaking, white.

              As for bloc homicides with > 2 victims, they are exceedingly unusual, maybe 120 a year in this country if that. Ones that feature white perpetrators mowing down predominantly black crowds are rare as hen’s teeth. As for ‘mass murder by officers of the state’, that’s a fantasy (unless you’re talking about the suppression of riots, in which case let’s see you get the job done).

  6. This mob should be commended, they’re just fighting white racism.

    1. That is an ignorant and hateful thing to say and it’s people exactly like you who are perpetuating and escalating the problem.

  7. What on Earth happened? Was that poor man targeted randomly by a mob? Had their been any words exchanged at all? Will the man recover?

    People like this drive employers out of their neighborhood, increase crime and blight, and then claim income inequality is not fair. It’s the 1% fault. They aren’t taxed enough. When people act like this, they waste their lives in and out of jail, at dead end jobs. Prospective employers tend to look down upon this type of behavior. They are so ignorant they don’t even see the cowardice of a mob attacking one person. It was their own future prospects and self respect they were kicking on the ground.

    In NY, a crowd dumped water on cops, even hitting one cop in the head with the bucket. The cops did nothing about it. Cops are hesitant to act now, as the mob does not appear to want an investigation anymore. They cry racism instantly. When police back down, crime and blight go up.

    Leftists who are anti-police, anti-ICE, and anti-law and order would cause more of this to happen.

    1. Here’s a story out of London:

      https://www.npr.org/2019/06/08/730951943/five-teens-arrested-in-homophobic-attack-on-london-bus

      Excerpt:

      “According to government data, hate crimes in England and Wales targeting victims’ sexual orientation rose 27% in 2017-2018 to a total of 11,638 incidents. Hate crimes targeting transgender people rose 32%. Police estimate that those numbers are getting larger, at least in part, because of improved protocol for reporting these crimes to police — but they still likely don’t reflect the reality of hate crimes against the LGBTQ community.

      “A 2017 study conducted by Stonewall, a U.K.-based advocacy organization, showed that 1 in every 5 LGBT individuals polled in Britain had experienced a hate crime or incident in the 12 months before the survey. Four out of every 5 of those victims, however, didn’t report it to police. Many who did report said they weren’t taken seriously.”

        1. That’s what I’m here for, anti-Orwellian. Changing the subject and insulting Karen S. or Ms. Bragg.

            Darren,

            might you and JT discuss how to prohibit commenters from carrying out these drive by hit and runs, and I don’t mean the Washington Hilton hit and run?

            suggestion: have commenters create accounts on this forum so that they must comment through these accounts only.
            With freedoms and rights come responsibilities

            thanks

            1. Darren, while you’re at it, can you ban posters like Estovir when they post racists attacks on other posters?

              1. Estovir and his pals are quite happy to post anonymous comments when it suits them. It’s the way they roll.

            2. Estovir,
              Wouldn’t requiring accounts on the forum decrease responsibility?

          2. The UK posting was in response to this:

            “astro Bhrigupandit says: July 25, 2019 at 10:10 PM
            shocking story. how can they do such crime in USA.”

            Good morning, Anonymous @ 7:08 am ET.

      1. “A 2017 study conducted by Stonewall, a U.K.-based advocacy organization, showed that 1 in every 5 LGBT individuals polled in Britain had experienced a hate crime or incident in the 12 months before the survey. Four out of every 5 of those victims, however, didn’t report it to police. Many who did report said they weren’t taken seriously.”

        I think if you look into this, the perpetrators of crimes against the LGBT folk in the UK are actually carried out by an already protected class. That’s what happens when you start sticking labels and flavors on people. One of your other flavored people may not like the flavor you apply to another group. But I know that’s big intellectual ground for the left these days. Carry on.

        1. It’s an advocacy organization. Reasonable wager their sampling frame sucks, they asked rigged questions, and their respondents have a rather expansive notion of what constitutes a crime.

  8. What else would you expect in DC? I work there and am armed at all times. The mayor, town counsel and citizens of the city condone such behavior. “Kids need and outlet.” Unfortunately this poor guy provided it.

    1. It’s probably a good idea for the cause of justice that you never be permitted to serve on a jury.

  9. “The Washington Hilton Hotel (where Ronald Reagan was shot) was the scene of a savage beating of a tourist by a dozen youths at the entrance of the hotel in broad daylight.”

    Do we know that the vic was/is a tourist?

  10. Now you know why the Greeks created democracy with a restricted vote; why the Romans perpetuated those voting rights restrictions and why the American Founders, in 1789, generally required voters to be Male, European, Age 21 with 50 lbs. Sterling or 50 acres – because, in a republic, “…supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote…” and because true one man, one vote “democracy” is hysterical, incoherent and chaotic anarchy which ultimately requires and evolves into the “dictatorship of the proletariat.”
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Ben Franklin, 1789, we gave you “…a republic, if you can keep it.”

    Ben Franklin, 2019, we gave you “…a republic, if you can take it back.”
    ________________________________________________________

    The contemporary American condition is hysteria, incoherence, chaos and anarchy.

    Abraham Lincoln seized all power to “Save the Union.”

    Pres. Trump must seize all power to “Save the Republic.”

    Definition of republic

    b(1) : a government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing according to law

    1. sure, but just carrying it won’t work on people who sneak up on you from behind.

      situational awareness is a lot more useful than an hunk of iron. it’s the person who kills not the tool.

      guns are great but you need awareness and skills too

      also stick together in groups. don’t get isolated like this guy

      1. While your comment has value, it is sad.

        Stick together and don’t get isolated…. 5 feet from a 20 story Hilton Hotel in the Nations capital. Is that what US society has become, total fear at all times.

        There are no consequences for these actions. The US continues the model of people under 18 not being held accountable for acts like these. We need to revisit out justice system. If you do this, you need to be punished, severely. And 3 strikes and you are out.

        Too bad he wasn’t armed and didn’t take out 4-5 of them right on the spot. Then put that on the national news for all to see and play in elementary schools. If you attack someone, you may suffer ultimate, immediate justice.

        1. that was bernard goetz, remember him? he took a lot of hell over it, too.

          out here in flyover it’s pretty peaceful

          let me say what anybody already knows but is afraid to say

          for your safety, wisely avoid neighborhoods densely populated by black “youths”

    1. Ha, Allan, wish!

      Omar is just scaring her base. White men are not to be feared. Perhaps 200 years ago, yes. But now, white men are missing the gonads of earlier generations. Must have been all the junk food I guess. But thanks for trying to cheer me up!

      1. “White men are not to be feared.”

        Kurtz, of course not but she is a typical person of the left instilling fear where such fear should not exist.

    2. She’s hanging out/supporting with American Hating terrorist including Al Qaeda , CAIR, muslim brotherhood & other Islamic Trash so she should be fearful here in American.

      Sounds from recent news she should be leaving before the charges are filed against her.
