Update: Des Moines Father Dead at Hands of Black Mob Violence

Police are still trying to figure out why a black mob beat Richard Daughenbaugh to death at a popular downtown Des Moines fishing spot one week ago.

Daughenbaugh, a father of six who worked as a construction laborer, did not know his killers, say police. But at 1 a.m., he found himself exchanging words with members of a mob that numbered in the dozens.

The Des Moines Register picks up the narrative with a sterile account that understates the violence and ignores the race of the attackers:
The suspects allegedly beat Daughenbaugh using no weapons other than their own bodies while others in the group tried to stop anyone from helping, police said.
A woman fishing nearby tried to step in and stop the assault and was struck, police said. Her companion was attacked as he jumped in to defend her.
And when the woman tried to call 911, two women from the group allegedly grabbed her phone and threw it. She eventually retrieved it and called 911.
Translation: Several people attacked Daughenbaugh. Several people attacked the fishermen who tried to help. And several people attacked the people who tried to dial 911. And lots of others watched and cheered. All black.

The Register picks it up again, quoting a police spokesman: “The phrase ‘mob mentality’ is probably accurate here. Once the assault began, acquaintances of the suspect jumped in.”


  1. Makes you want to do a mag dump...

    1. Iowa is a shall issue state and there are a lot of carry permits issued in Polk county. I cannot believe that there was no one nearby with a gun who could have stopped these viscous animals.

      Sadly, I believe that situations like the Zimmerman arrest and trial (even though he was acquitted) make people think twice before doing the right thing. Like the Colorado theater shootings and the Newtown shootings, one person being present with a gun and the willingness to use it could have saved innocent lives.

    2. one person being present with a gun and the willingness to use it could have saved innocent lives.

      Yes, Sir.
