Oct 6 (Reuters) - Police in western Washington state were looking for five black suspects in the stabbing death of a white U.S. Army soldier in what authorities said on Sunday may have been a racially motivated killing.

"We are exploring the possibility that this could be a hate crime or racially motivated," said Lakewood Police Department spokesman Lieutenant Chris Lawler. "We won't know exactly what the motive is until we interview the suspects."

The victim, identified by the Pierce County Medical Examiner's Office as Tevin Geike, 20, was walking with two fellow soldiers early Saturday morning in the Tacoma suburb of Lakewood when a car drove past them and its occupants yelled "something about being white," according to witness statements summarized in a Lakewood Police Department news release.

One of the soldiers - all of whom were white and stationed at the nearby Joint Base Lewis-McChord - expressed displeasure about those in the car "treating combat soldiers with disrespect," the police statement said.

The car turned around and came to a stop and five black men in their mid-20s emerged from it. After a verbal confrontation, the driver of the car called his friends off upon learning that the soldiers were in fact combat veterans, the police statement said.

As the suspects were returning to the car, one of them "appeared to bump into the victim," and he fell to the ground as the car sped away, the report said.

Geike's friends then realized that he'd been stabbed and was bleeding profusely, the statement said. Emergency medical workers came and treated him, but he was pronounced dead at the scene from multiple stab wounds.

Geike was from Summerville, South Carolina, and held the rank of specialist, a base spokesman said. He entered the Army in 2010 and arrived at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in 2011 after training to be an aviation operations specialist. (Editing by Jane Sutton and Mohammad Zargham)

This is what Ant means when he says black crime is way worse, because of how random it is.

You can stack dozens upon dozens of reports like this up until you have a mountain, and the liberal pants-pisser white guilt myopia will still render it invisible.

Not only will they refuse to to grasp the frighteningly-random and racist nature of black crime and violence, they'll just refuse to acknowledge that anything of the sort even exists.

Read this discussion over at the JREF, it perfectly demonstrates this sort of "color blindness"...

OP...

Hi.

I saw this blog:

http://violenceagainstwhites.wordpress.com/

and they mention various stories of "racist" violent acts against whites. How much of this stuff is there in, say, the USA, and maybe also Canada and Britain, compared to violence against blacks, and is the "media" really "downplaying" it as the posts seem to suggest?
And you'll see many, many responses along these lines...

Unfortunately racism can take many forms.

Interesting url name you posted. awesomely un-biased
Well, liberals obviously don't. Many Republicans eat this crap up like it is bacon wrapped in cotton candy with a free gun on top.

"Oh no, a black person! Revenge for Trayvon is surely upon us!"

Just go browse trough Free Republic for some good examples of this.
Yup... anybody who acknowledges the mere existence of black-on-white violence is obviously a delusional racist who has fallen under the spell of racist url lies and propaganda.

I didn't join the discussion, because calling people cunts is frowned upon over there, and there really is no other way to address people who are that far gone into their white-guilt fantasylands.

UsaToday is the only major media outlet to at least state the race of the victim/s (no mention of ******s) in the headline.
Police weigh 'hate crime' in white GI's stabbing death
Slight improvement. At the level of knowing who it was, but don't dare mention the protected blacks. That's what that soldier swore under during the oath of enlistment, selectiveness of the press.

Tevin Geike Murder: Three Arrested in Army Soldier Stabbing Death

Tevin Geike, a Joint Base Lewis-McChord soldier, was fatally stabbed over the weekend, and officials arrested three suspects.

LAKEWOOD, Wash. (AP) — Three people have been arrested in the stabbing death of a Joint Base Lewis-McChord soldier.

The Lakewood Police Department said Monday that detectives have arrested three people who are also soldiers at JBLM. Authorities say at least two of the five suspects in the case are cooperating with law enforcement.

Detectives had been investigating whether the stabbing of 20-year-old Tevin Geike crime was racially motivated but said Monday that it does not appear that race was a factor.

Geike was walking with two friends early Saturday when a verbal confrontation developed with another group of people who drove by in a vehicle. Police say men from the car initially surrounded the soldiers but then began to leave. One of the suspects then appeared to bump into Geike as he walked past. That’s when Geike’s friends discovered he had been stabbed.

They say race didn't play a part.

The reasoning? None. The suspect won't say why he did it.

It'll be interesting to see if any particular members decide to make an appearance in this thread.

Free Republic is hardly a good example of your average right-winger's perspective. It's a fringe site for fringe people with fringe views.
They are good at digging up articles but there are some real idiots commenting on there.

I know, and I've only been there once. I was led there by a Google search for reactions to Christopher Hitchens trashing Jerry Falwell on the day the latter died. It was a bunch of brain-dead social conservatives defending an indefensible scumbag more or less on the basis that was a man of faith and God, and therefore was a good person.

If Free Republic is the average perspective of the right wing, then Chanty Binx is the official spokeswomyn of the liberal left.

I love how its so obviously racially motivated, but they report it as "it could be" a hate crime and they have to have this huge investigation about whether it could possibly maybe be a hate crime. Reverse it and it would automatically be a hate crime, no investigation needed.

Imo, the ****** soldiers yelled something racial at the cracker soldiers and the cracker soldiers yelled something racial back. That's why the details are sketchy. But yeah, that changes when they actually shank someone over it. No one involved is giving real details because they don't want to bring heat to this/themselves even though this shit was fatal. Fuckin cowards.

Good. Throw the UCMJ at the animals and then let them rot in the deepest pits of Leavenworth.
