Trayvon Martin Hate Crime Cover-Up in Grand Rapids, Michigan; Give the Local Media Hell! (Contact Info)

“This is what you deserve you white piece of shit!” shouted the three black attackers, as they pummeled Jacob Palasek, 37, in the head with a metal chain.

Kyle Rogers reports in the Charleston Examiner that racist black mobs have recently carried out at least seven vicious attacks against whites in the same area of Grand Rapids, Michigan, all of which have been covered up by the local media, and undercharged and underplayed by local authorities.

That means that the blood of most of those victims is on the hands of local editors and law enforcement, since if they had notified the public of what was going on, many of the victims would have avoided those areas, at least at night, and an aggressive police response would have discouraged many of the later attacks.
All seven known victims were attacked within about six blocks of where Jacob was attacked. The victims were in their 30s, 40s, and 50s. Some of the victims were attacked during the day in broad daylight.

Jacob believes he could have died if he was hit with the chain more times. He still has bad headaches and has not been able to work since the attack. Jacob doesn't have insurance and can't afford the correct medical treatment. His landlord is now threatening to evict him from his apartment. Since he was not able to work, he has missed a rent payment. A victim's relief fund is planning to give him a small amount of money. However, police did not even tell him the fund existed so he applied very late. He is still waiting on the help.

The police listed aggravated assault with a weapon and ethnic intimidation, Michigan's state hate crimes law, on the police report. Jacob identified two of the perpetrators. However, police have told Jacob that the thugs will get off easy because they are only 17. Police told him that the thugs will not serve time in prison for the brutal hate crimes.

Police said that the suspects will not be tried as adults. They will only face juvenile boot camp instead of prison. A detective told Jacob that they believe all the attacks were racially motivated. The detective also told Jacob that he believed the Trayvon Martin media frenzy is what prompted the attacks. Jacob also believed that the thugs were seeking revenge for Trayvon Martin before the detective confirmed this belief.

To add insult to injury, not a single media outlet in all of Grand Rapids reported the brutal hate crimes. Jacob has contacted the local paper and his local news affiliates repeatedly. None will report the story….

Eric Holder, who heads the DOJ, says he is investigating ways to charge George Zimmerman with a Federal crime. Think Eric Holder will concern himself with the white victims of horrific hate crime mob attacks in Grand Rapids?

For the past two years black on white racially motivated mob attacks have been occurring in the United States weekly. Local media outlets typically only have little blurbs about them and censor all mention of race.

Numerous major media outlets now openly admit to having a policy of censoring black crime, so as not to “stigmatize” black people. Political correctness supersedes public safety. The response from the authorities has been one of constant downplaying. None of the perpetrators are ever charged with a hate crime.

Now it has reached a point where the media in some markets are refusing to even report black on white hate crimes. How many other horrific black on white hate crime mob attacks are going on that we have never heard about?

If you send an email, in those cases where I could find more than one eddress, cc it to everyone in the joint. I’d appreciate it, if you would cc a copy to me, as well, so I can post it, since the outlet will probably consign your complaints to “the circular file.” Ditto for the basic text of any telephone messages you leave at these outfits.]

I've always wondered how it is that of the innumerable Black attacks on Asians in Chicago I have NEVER heard of a single one ever being classified as a racial hate crime. And that's for over four decades I've been observing.

What is the follow-up to this story.
I live in GR and never heard any follow-up and Wood TV 8 is the worst
