It will turn out that the Woman with the baby is white – more racial attacks more hate crimes against whites. Sorta looks like the Portland Police better quit kissing ass to the Non White ” Community” and start some good ole racial profiling. I wonder if any of the six little gangstas who were harassing the lady used racially derogatory language? Could this be yet another hate crime that will go unpunished as such? I know it hasn’t been reported as a hate crime yet, but is that simply due to police and media political correctness?
And you just have to wonder about The Oregonian’s account of the incident in which they said “the boy or one of his friends ‘bumped’ the stroller” as they boarded the train. They almost make it sound as if it was accidental and the mother began unjustly berating the punks. Why can’t they tell the truth and admit he kicked the stroller several times violently and caused the soft drink to spill on the little kid? Why must some media sources constantly soft pedal the crimes of minority thugs?
Portland Tri-Met Max Arrest: Black Negro 11 Year old threatens Mother with Loaded Gun
PORTLAND, Ore. – The mother on a MAX train, who says an 11-year-old flashed a gun at her Thursday night, says the boy was harassing her.
Police arrested the boy and KATU News learned Friday afternoon that he is a brother of Portland murder victim 14-year-old Yashanee Vaughn. She disappeared last March near Rocky Butte. Police say her former boyfriend, Parrish Bennette, led them to where her body was hidden on the butte.
An argument started after a group of kids got on the train at the Skidmore Fountain station and one of them bumped the mother’s stroller. She said they started kicking her stroller where her child was seated and cursing at her. Then the 11-year-old boy lifted his shirt and flashed a gun in his waistband. She said when he started to pull it out she backed away and he put the gun back.
When it was all happening, the mother, who did not want to be identified, said she panicked at first, fearing the boy might use the gun.
“He stands up and sticks his hand down his pants, and I don’t see anything particularly but I see more than his hand – more of bulge,” she said. “I don’t know exactly, but my instincts just told me what it was. … Yeah, it was a mamma bear instinct. I instantly got on the phone. I didn’t know what else to do.”
The mother then called 911 while her friend distracted the kids. The train stopped at the Old Town/Chinatown stop and the 11-year-old was taken into custody after the mother pointed him out to police.
The mother said she was worried about what would have happened if she hadn’t called police.
“I see this kid. I believe he has a gun. I don’t want to let him go.”
Police said he had a loaded .22-caliber semiautomatic handgun in his waistband. They also said another boy on the train, a 13-year-old, had a BB gun in his backpack. He was also taken into custody.
A judge has ordered the 11-year-old to be held in juvenile custody through the weekend. He faces six charges.
Portland Police Bureau spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson said in his 18-year career he’s never seen or heard of a case where an 11-year-old was armed and confrontational in public.
“On Thursday January 26, 2012, at 8:20 p.m., officers from the Transit Police Division responded to the report of someone with a gun on a MAX train stopped at the Old Town/Chinatown stop.
Officers arrived and learned that group of boys and girls, including two young men ages 11 and 13, had a dispute with another passenger after one of the boys bumped into her baby stroller when they boarded the train.
During the argument with the baby’s mother, the 11-year-old boy lifted his shirt to show the woman a gun in his waistband then he started to pull the gun out but the woman backed away and the boy put the gun back into his waistband.
The woman called 9-1-1 and the train stopped at the Old Town/Chinatown stop where the victim identified the suspect and police took the 11-year-old into custody. A loaded .22 caliber semi-automatic handgun was recovered from his waistband.
Officers contacted the 13-year-old boy and learned he had a BB gun in his backpack. He too was taken into custody.
The 13-year-old boy was taken to Janus Youth Program. Officers obtained a court order to lodge the 11-year-old boy into the Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Home.
