Prosecutors: Green Lake assault was hate crime

A Seattle man accused of holding a stranger at gunpoint during a chance encounter at Green Lake now faces hate crime and assault charges.

King County prosecutors claim Chikwanha E. Nyashanu pointed a pistol at a passerby near the Green Lake Community Center and demanded the other man “apologize for all the things white people did to black people.” Prosecutors say Nyashanu, 35, may have pointed a pistol at several others in the park before the race-based assault.

According to charging papers, the other man was walking near the east Green Lake center at 9:15 p.m. on Aug. 11 when Nyashanu approached him and pointed a pistol at him.

Nyashanu then demanded that the man apologize for “all the things white people did to black people,” a Seattle detective told the court.

Speaking with police, the man said Nyashanu pointed the gun at his stomach for 15 to 20 seconds, according to charging papers. The man said he offered Nyashanu his wallet, which Nyashanu refused while demanding the apology. According to charging papers, Nyashanu walked away after the man apologized profusely.

The man told police he was “scared out of his mind,” the detective continued, but believed Nyashanu approached him at random.

“He thought the suspect picked him out only because he was there and that if someone else was there he would have done the same to them,” the detective said in court papers. The man said he did not believe the attack was racially motivated.

Police arrested Nyashanu after shocking him with a stun gun. According to charging papers, a pistol fell from his clothing as he was stunned by police; the alleged victim subsequently identified Nyashanu as his assailant.

The detective noted a loaded pistol was recovered from the scene. A search of Nyashanu’s backpack uncovered more ammunition.

Jailed on $500,000 bail, Nyashanu has been charged with second-degree assault as well as malicious harassment, Washington’s hate crime law. Prosecutors contend Nyashanu targeted the man because of his race.

“apologize for all the things white people did to black people.”

That is the end of the case right there. This will warm the heart of the west coast libs. Not only will there be no charges in the end this guy will be a left wing hero.

i wonder what the naacp has to say about this
They're too busy being OUTRAGED! about a rodeo clown in Missouri who viciously hate crimed the POTUS with a Halloween mask.

And then after that furor dies down, they're going to be extremely busy ignoring this...

3 teens say they were 'bored', so they shot & killed Australian baseball player while he was jogging: cops
Christopher Lane, 22, of Melbourne, Australia, was found dead Friday while visiting the town of Duncan, where his girlfriend lives. Three boys, ages 15, 16, and 17, are in custody and face a court appearance Tuesday afternoon.

UGH! FUCKING SHUT UP! White coward, he asked you to apologize for white crimes you didn't commit and it's not racist?

Why link that story of 3 "teens". As Trayvon taught us a 17 year old is not capable of crime.

Well... it's pretty clear that these youngsters have been unjustly accused...

Two of the accused teens' parents insist they were not involved in the killing.

"That's my baby boy," said the mother of the 16-year-old accused of firing the single bullet from a handgun into the back of Mr Lane.

She doesn't believe her son was involved in the shooting, saying today he was not a member of a gang and definitely not the one who pulled the trigger.

The father of the 15-year-old accused of being in the car admitted his son had been in some previous "kid stuff" trouble with the law, but described him as a good boy who also was not part of a gang.

"I don't think so," the father replied when asked if his son could have been part of the murder.

"Because he's not the type of person. He likes to wrestle. He's into sports."
I think I'll wait for them to apprehend the real culprits before this story is worthy of its own thread.

Yep... that white guilt clings to some people like stink on a monkey. He pointed a gun at this guy, and even THAT wasn't enough to scare the white guilt off him.

What a delusional idiot.
