Police are looking to round up the “six black and Hispanic males” they say they’ve identified as suspects in the vicious early evening beating of a white Vietnam veteran on a Philadelphia street.
The 6 “teens” were captured on video attacking the man, identified as Edward Schaefer, from behind.
I’ve seen this referred to as a “random” attack. It’s not random. It’s racial. Spend 15 minutes in the Philthy city. It’s a powder keg, and the ineffectual city leadership seems powerless to do anything about it. The Mayor is great spouting off in vulgar tirades on FOX 29 and acting tough on Twitter. Meanwhile, it’s open season in Philadelphia on law abiding citizens and it has been for quite some time.
According to investigators, 64-year-old Edward Schaefer was walking to meet his wife at the bus stop when he was approached from behind by six males.
McClay said one of the suspects began the violent attack and the others joined in on the random beating.
Cowards in packs. Strangely, the media has stopped calling them flash mobs.
Schaefer was rushed to Albert Einstein Medical Center with fractured skull and severe injuries to his face and hand.
“I’m disgusted by this whole thing,” [Lt George] McClay said. “I’m surprised he survived.”
McClay said “one more shot the wrong way” and this could have been a homicide investigation.
