    Police say it's 'very possible' attacks near fairgrounds had racial overtones

    Des Moines police are trying to determine what led to a series of attacks outside the Iowa State Fairgrounds over the weekend that included the assault of two police officers.

    At least three people were arrested Friday through early Monday morning. Other arrests may occur as officers investigate the incidents, officials said.

    There are indications that some of the fights - which appear to involve mostly teenagers and young adults - were racially motivated, police said.

    "We don't know if this was juveniles fighting or a group of kids singling out white citizens leaving the fairgrounds," Sgt. Lori Lavorato said. "It's all under investigation, but it's very possible it has racial overtones."

    They taunt the police hoping to get beaten, and then sue the shit out of the town. This has got to stop. I would not want to be a police officer today for any amount of money.

    The kids will get a slap on the wrist. If that. :evil:

    Back in the 90's we had a festival called riverfest in the flats of Cleveland. For years it was a fantastic time, loaded with fun and a great place for men and women to mingle. Gangs came in with video cameras and began taping themselves beating white citizens.

    Guess what happened? Riverfest got cancelled permanantly.

    So Jillian, back to our continuing conversation.....

    Do you suppose this DA will have the balls to charge it as a hate crime if it turns out this was racially motivated? Or, will this one, like all the others, charge it as a regular assault?

    Could be that they were upset over who the judges picked as the Champion Hog at the fair. Folks from Iowa are really picky about things like that.

    daveman would tell you that the blacks just need to listen to Glenn Beck more. Then they'd pull up their pants, stop beating whites, and discover the cure for cancer.
