A man beat an Army reservist in front of a Morrow Cracker Barrel, yelling racial slurs at her as he kicked her in the head, Morrow police said. The assault happened in front of the woman’s 7-year old daughter, who stood there, crying, witnesses told police.Takes a real man to do that. Take your pick, beating up a woman in public, beating up a black woman in public, beating up a black woman in public in front of her seven-year old daughter. There's a great message to send to our young black women: shut the hell up or you will get it shut up for you.
Morrow police arrested Troy Dale West of Poulan after reviewing a video surveillance tape and talking to customers. He was charged with battery, disorderly conduct and cruelty to children.
The woman and her daughter were leaving the South Lake Plaza Drive restaurant last Wednesday about 7:30 p.m. as West was heading inside, Capt. James Callaway of the Morrow Police Department said.
The restaurant doorway nearly struck the woman’s daughter, prompting her to tell West, “Sir, you almost hit my daughter with the door, could you please be careful,” Callaway said.
West responded, telling the woman that she needed to watch her daughter and then began yelling racial slurs at her and kicking and punching her in the head, Callaway said.
Witnesses told police the woman kept telling West that she was an Army officer.
“She kept saying, 'Sir, I’m a United States soldier, don’t do this,’ ” Callaway said.
I'm personally waiting for the Wingers to suppose this is somehow Obama's fault too, after all as Tim at Balloon Juice keeps brilliantly putting it,
Barack Obama stripped millions of Americans of their right to not have a black President.And millions of Americans are pissed off about that. So this U.S. Army Reserve soldier just had to get her ass kicked, you see.Welcome to post-racial America.
