Fight over Confederate flag decal could be investigated as hate crime

Via sauced07


An assault Sunday on a man who had a Confederate flag decal on his truck could be investigated as a hate crime, Salt Lake City cops said.

Cellphone video of the encounter shows a black man punching and knocking out a white man during an argument purportedly about the rebel insignia, FOX13 reported. The two men exchange words before the assailant drops the white man to the ground with a vicious right hook.

“I’ll be damned if I ever come to Salt Lake again without bringing my gun,” said Kelly Leeper, who was at the scene and is a friend of the man who was punched.

  2. The very word "city" necessitates being armed.

  5. Utah state law permits citizens to wear or carry loaded firearms.

    Whenever I drive my pickup truck, with its Confederate battle flag flying above the cab, to Salt Lake City for medical treatment, I always wear my revolver, and in addition, keep a carbine and a rifle stowed in my vehicle.

  7. Hi Brock,
    Ever since I moved to NC from CA with ScurvyIrvinAero back in '96, I have been Flying a Confederate Flag License Plate on the front of my truck, all my trucks I've had since!! In CA ya' had a "State Plate" on front and back! Not so 'bout every where else. Have had no problems......"Yet?" I have not felt the necessity to travel "Armed" till recently. Never mind Concealed Carry, I just "Open Carry!!" "AND!!," at least 2 extra Mags. Also swab my barrel and tip all my bullets with "Silver Bullet Gun Oil" made with 13% "Pig Fat" just in case a Perp is a muzzy.
    My best wishes to those two guys in Salt lake. 'Hope to see the perps ID'ed, Caught and Prosecuted!! Will it happen?? We shall see!
    I may add that what I have noticed lately is that in a situation like that depicted here, any "Verbal" communication with the "perps" is futile. We are at WAR!! Debating with someone is fine if you are dealing with "Civilized" people who understand and follow the rules of Proper Parliamentary Procedure......forget it, the perps in question were about as civilized as a pack of jackals!! "Language" is useless to them. Therefore in a situation like this what comes to mind are the immortal words of Eli Wallach ....you have to wait a while, it is right at the end...... right after 5 rounds of .45 Colt.... just plug this into your browser!! ......................................................... http://kitbashed.com/blog/when-you-have-to-shoot-shoot-dont-talk

  8. Thirty years ago In taught my three Southern born children Col. Jeff Coopers color code system and admonished them to be at Code Yellow minimum when out and about. We were living in the Salt Lake City metro area then. I am constantly amazed at white guys getting blind-sided by large groups of black thugs. That was 1985. It is now 2015. Is anybody paying attention?
