Savage Milwaukee beating

No suspect descriptions are given other than their ages, but the police have 5 juveniles in line to be charged for the horrific and savage beating of a motorist who had the nerve to try to drive down the street in his own town last Monday night. Breitbart has the update: "5 Juveniles May Be Charged in Mob Beating".

MILWAUKEE - A prosecutor began reviewing possible charges Thursday against five juveniles in the brutal mob beating of a man yanked from his car while driving through a north side neighborhood. Two are 17 years old, two are 16 and one is 14, according to a police statement that did not give the genders of the suspects in the attack on Samuel McClain, a 50-year-old father of 12. Police continue to seek more suspects, the release said.
By all accounts, there was tremendous violence involved:

A group of as many as 15 youths punched, kicked and jumped on McClain after he honked for them to move out of the street Monday night, witnesses said.

McClain was in satisfactory condition Thursday at Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital in suburban Wauwatosa, just three days after he arrived there, unable to breathe on his own.

Karen Brasel, a trauma surgeon and critical care specialist at Froedtert, said McClain was essentially in a coma after he was brought to the hospital.

He was "very lucky to be alive," Brasel said.
Now there are some who object to calling these criminals savages and animals because of racial overtones. You know who you are. Well, in this case the suspects have not been identified, other than by their ages. For all we know, this could have been a mob of white skinheads that beat a black man nearly to death. It could have been a group of boyscouts, or girlscouts (the news release specifically said the gender was not to be released at this time), or bible students.

So now that its clear that the perpetrators of this crime have not yet been identified in any meaningful way, Rambix will posit this: They are savages who have acted as if they were feral beasts. They need to be held to account, and crushed if they resist.

This should satisfy those that read more into the descriptions than is there. In other words, the criminals have been described by their actions, not by what or who they are.
