Elderly disabled woman assaulted by racist.



MODESTO, CA - A 69-year-old woman was assaulted while sitting in her motorized wheelchair at a Modesto bus stop on Tuesday.

An ensuing investigation revealed the woman was waiting for a Modesto Area Express Bus when Nicholas Velasquez, 29, of Modesto, punched her in the face then walked away saying "I hate white people", according to Armendariz.

The woman sustained a black eye and her glasses were broken in the assault, said Armendariz.

Officers searched the area and located Velasquez nearby on Scenic Rd. He was arrested without incident and booked into Stanislaus County Jail on one count of elder abuse and another count of committing a hate crime.

    The liberals who dominate the media have a movie that runs in their minds that non-whites are perpetually the victims of white thugs. When a story does not fit their narrative, they are less emotionally motivated to report it and as a result frequently declare racism where none exists (where non-whites are painted as victims) and ignore real cases of racism (where whites are victims).

    Liberals cannot be trusted with power and they cannot be trusted to tell an honest story.

    That is not "in" and way too "common every day stuff" every assault is an offense against civilization (although a few practice offensive language and action to a point of just reward) and should be advertised, condemned, and punished roundly color is immaterial only employed for self-service of that advocate.

    Sure the so called "whites" are expected to buck it up and take abuse because a 100 years ago blacks were slaves. Fact is African people sold their own into slavery, fact, just because someone is not black or dark brown does not mean they do not have other races in their genes. Take me, half choctaw/cherokee, other half irish/scottish. Half my ancestors were robbed of their land, the other half came to this country to evade being treated like scum. To look at me, a person might assume I am white with a kick ass tan. They might thing I have had a better up bringing than then. Lemme tell you it ain't so!!! Stop this race hate. Lets just value each other as human beings

    Right on ....and any other conformations any one can come up with, Americans are notoriously mixed of race and "opportunity" you me the dip of a pres we have, all mixed race. the problem with the bigot/racist ( or BHO) is NOT their race, it is their actions and objectives.

    Again the press is afraid they may rub the minorities the wrong way and cause a race riot.
    White people don't cause race riots.

    That is because the media is responding racially. The left, even the whites, feel the left is persecuted!

    that's horrible, people need to start paying attention to everything and stop being so biast to somebody different then them. we don't know her or why the person did it other than the fact that they were racist, but it's not right for them to attack a disabled woman.

    Black on black or black on white crime is so prevalent, that the news papers would have nothing but crime stories if they reported every single crime committed. News stories are printed and reported on T.V. to sell advertising! Bottom line, it's about MONEY. Where are the bigot brothers, Jesse and Al?

    Are you kidding me?! If anything white victims get more attention than minority victims. Just watch the Today show on any given morning find out who the latest white girl to go missing/get attacked/walk into a propeller/fall down while texting is.

    The Today show? now there is a place to get your data, it is entertainment for the "slightly bent" and serious liberal...........not for the fully screaming liberal toastada.

    I used it as an example since it had been the highest rated morning "news" show for decades and therefore a good example of media.

    And of those "white" girls whacked how many are whacked by some one "black" not many I would bet % wise. in any case the main issue is that "Zimmerman is and continues to be "THE TOPIC" the old lady with seeming NO cause or reason except an easy "hate" target (notice that it was a white " WOMEN" and "OLD" [no risk] not a 6'4" 280lb white MAN) will be lost and gone within the week.
    I have to say also that no one , such as bob of pro-DNC fame, here on this site is calling for this idiot attackers head, or excusing (as bob did) the black panthers hit contract on Zimmerman. I would bet that he would be condemning a nutty white supremacist group if they did likewise to the "black" assailant.
    Ya Think
  • Tennyso... jon 2012/06/14 14:19:05

    I think the difference between Zimmerman and this case (and the others that have been cited) is that Zimmerman was not initially arrested. I don't care what color you are, there is a legal process that should be followed.

    My point is that you do not hear about people being punched in the national media - if they reported on people who have been punched the news reporters would have to be auctioneers..I mean - a punch? seriously - I have never heard of ANYONE being punched and making national headlines..I just haven't...it doesn't happen

    well, guess this site doesn't have a filter fpor anything, which is good. Freedom of speech. But one thing urks me. If you go onto youtube or MS word and type in God, as god, it will not have a corrction to change it to a capital G. Try wriiting allah and see what it says...
